Hope You Can Cling To Smash


I am finally carving out just a little bit of time to play in the Hope You Can Cling To challenge over on Splitcoaststampers. Today Power Poppy's own designer Julie is the hostess.   


Her challenge is to "Get Smooshed".  In the past 15 years, more than 200,000 breast cancer deaths have been averted thanks to that ground-breaking test we know and love -- the mammogram. With this challenge, help spread the word! All you need to do is try one of these fun Splitcoast tutorials (Ink,Spray,Smash or Acrylic Smash), make a card to inspire others and encourage those women you love to "smoosh or smash" and get that annual mammogram! 

I chose Beate's tutorial Acrylic Smash.

I used an acetate sheet on the back and stamped it with the Power Poppy's Frosted Gingerbread background stamp that comes with this set.  I used light pink acrylic paint and stamped on the acetate with Stazon ink.  I stamped the sentiment and cut out the word HOPE. I thought it was perfect for October.  

Head on over the SCS for all the details.  The master thread is HERE

I chose Christine's fabulous Layered Paper Strips tutorial HERE.   I didn't use as many layers as Christine did.  I LOVE how this card turned out.  It is so neat in person.  I used Power Poppies newest release set called Poinsettia available HERE. As Christine suggested I stamped out 3 images but only colored one in its entirety.  Then I cut my strips and used 2 of them.  I popped them up.   

I even decorated the inside of my card this time...

Little Pink Houses


Happiest of Holidays Release Blog hop is here...


Well what do you think of the new release from Power Poppy?  I am in love with every single set.  Today all of the Bloom Brigade is creating some inspiration for you..I chose the Frosted Gingerbread today.



Since today is October 1st and officially breast cancer awareness month I went with a pink themed little house. I cut out the word HOPE from the sentiments and added it.  I stamped the background in Versamark and embossed with a sparkly embossing powder.  

All of the sets are available over at the Power Poppy store:  HERE

Now hop on over to the rest of the Bloom Brigade's blogs and check out the creations:

Power Poppy Poinsettia


Welcome to the last day of Power Poppy's new release...Introducing Poinsettia.  I just love this wonderful bright plant for the cold winter months.  The possibilities could be endless.  


Growing up my mom made a stocking for each of us.  There were 8 kids and the mantle was really full on Christmas morning.  This set reminds me so much of the excitement of heading down the stairs to find tooth brushes and oranges in our stockings.  I just love the font Marcella used for this set. 

This set is available over at the Power Poppy store.
Now head on over and see what the rest of the Bloom Brigade has for you...

Power Poppy's Frosted Gingerbread


Welcome to day 3 of the Power Poppy's new release.  What a fun new set we have to show you today. This set is called Frosted Gingerbread and is available HERE.  


One of the things I really love about this set is that it has a background stamp that I stamped 3 times and colored.  It took some time but was well worth it.  You could also use it to create your own designer paper.  How neat is that?  Each year my family gets together and decorates gingerbread houses.  Marcella has outdone herself on all the sets this month.  

Now don't forget this set is available for sale today and you can purchase it over at the Power Poppy store.  For your viewing pleasure check out what the Bloom Brigade has to show you today:
