May Flowers by Power Poppy

Power Poppy's challenge for May is May Flowers.  I love this tulip image and printed it out on cryogen white paper and colored it with copic markers. I used a Cheery Lynn stitched oval die to cut it out and trimmed it in a gold pen.  I added a tulip cuttlebug embossing to the background in pale yellow and attached it to a 5x7 lavender card.  The saying is from Power Poppy's  clear stamp set blooming wonderful.   I used a Sue Wilson die for the saying.  Be sure to check out the gorgeous flower images at Power Poppy.   I used the feather and pearls to cover up where my hand moved and I got some gold on the front of the oval while I was edging it in the gold. You can always find a way to cover a boo boo.!!!!

Another Switch up Your Shades for Power Poppy

I'm entering this in the Power Poppy Switch up your shades challenge.  I used the vase of Azaleas stamp for this card and embossed it in detail gold and colored it with Twinkling H2O's. I fussy cut it out and attached it to the Spellbinders circles.  The border is a Sue Wilson border and I edged all the dies in a gold pen.  The flourish is a Cheery Lynn and the flowers are from Michaels and I colored them with a copic marker.  These last two card are thank you cards for my sister's memorial fund. She lost her battle with cancer a couple of weeks ago.

Switch up your shades

Power Poppy's challenge for this month is to change up your coloring medium.  I stamped the pretty Azaleas stamp set, embossed it in gold and used my old twinkling H2O's to color it.  I used a Sue Wilson Herald Square die set and edged it in spun sugar distress ink.  I added some pretty pink flowers on top of the Cheery Lynn flourish and pearls to finish the card.

Something Old, Something New

This is for the challenge on  Our Daily Bread Design.    The image and Wishing die and sentiment is new. The label 26 I used for the image and background is old.  I used a 6" square cuttlebug on navy paper and used gold gilding wax over it for the background. The sentiment is on a Spellbinders flag and I added pine cones and branch in glittered gold.  The papers are lined with a silver pen and colored with copics. Check out the images this month on Our Daily Bread Design and all the beautiful design team cards.

Forget me not

This pretty blue card and flowers are for the Double D challenge. This pretty image is from Power Poppy's digital images, climbing clematis.  I cut the image out with the French Flair and edged it in gold and colored it with copics.  All the dies are French Flair from Cheery Lynn.   I added some pearls and a pretty double bow to finish the card.

Stretch yourself

Stretch yourself is the challenge over at Power Poppy.  This card is 5.5 wide and 8.5 tall.  I used the Power Poppy image Heaven and Nature Sing and colored it Copics.  I used Cheery Lynn dies for the top, center, leaves and flowers. The border die at the bottom is a Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions.

Christmas tags

I don't usually make tags but I needed these for my bosses this year and decided to go with an eclectic theme. I used a glittered card stock and just cut the corners round.  The deer and dove are Cheery Lynn dies and the tree is a Sue Wilson die.  I added little red beads to the trees.  I think the holly leaves are from Sue Wilson also.
