Love You



THE SKY’S THE LIMIT CHALLENGE is the first in many monthly challenges intended to unleash your design power and light a creative spark. This month’s challenge is all about looking to the skies and being inspired by nature’s incredible color palette. You only have to look out the window to get started! AND, there are just 8 more days left, you have through February 28th to enter! For all the details on THIS MONTH’S CHALLENGE, just click HERE. Be sure to link up your creation after you get those fingers inky! Today is the final day to enter.

I chose this picture as my sky inspiration:


I had my kids all here for Thanksgiving..  We drove out by a pretty place on the lake as the sun was setting and shot this photo.  I love it.  It was a really special weekend. We don't get to see each other very often. 


 I took the hearts as my inspiration for my card for my sky creation.





I chose Power Poppies Big Script for my sentiment.  Then I added some stitching on my double punched hearts.  This paper is from the Carta Bella Words Of Love pad.  It is so pretty.  I have seen many cards like this on Pinterest and  had wanted to create one.  This set is so much fun.

French Lilacs In Full Bloom




Have you all seen the latest February digital release over at Power Poppy?  Just a little background on our new monthly digital releases. We call our new program the Instant Garden. Those of you who have been following Power Poppy for a while know that every so often Marcella would introduce digital sets, and really, ya’ll wanted a more predictable schedule for finding them in the shop, and you wanted MORE OF ’EM. Then, our clear stamp fans wanted to know that they, too, would still get their polymer fix. Ohhhh girls, we have you ALL COVERED, we’re doing the whole kit and kaboodle. Digis, clear stamps, and lots and lots of beauty, creativity, and all-around positivity from your Power Poppy HQ, the Bloom Brigade, and now joining us for the ride....THE INSTANT GARDENERS! 
Some SERIOUS drooling going on over this team.  




I printed my lilac onto X-Press It cardstock and colored with Copic markers.  Then I cut it out so I could pop it up on my card.  I wanted my sentiment to match my lilacs.  



So changed the color of the font on the sentiment that comes with this set.  Julie has a very detailed tutorial on how to do this over on the Power Poppy Blog Monday Tutorials.  This one is HERE.  

This new set is available for immediate download over in the Power Poppy store:

I chose the Potted Primrose set for my card this week.  I wanted my flowers to match this pretty Words of Love paper from Carta Bella.  I colored the primroses using R14, 24, 29 and 59.  I love coloring the leaves the most on this set.

Big Scripts


Welcome to day 4 of Power Poppies February Release.  I am in love with different styles of fonts.  There are so many possibilities with this set.  


I have been wanting to try out this sunburst pattern for a card. I found a tutorial on Pinterest. I chose the paper from Echo Park called Fine and Dandy.  I added a few gray pieces I had as scraps.  The font on the sentiments in this set are so much fun.  I needed a birthday card for my daughter and she loves yellow.Big Scripts and will be available over at the Power Poppy store..BIG SCRIPTS.
