Thank you cards for my sister

 I made these cards for my sister to send, she's temporarily in the nursing home after suffering a weird reaction to the new immune therapy for her cancer.  I used Power Poppy images on all three of these cards and added some embossing and bling.  You can find the Power Poppy stamps or digital images at the links.  Now I have to get busy, she needs a few more.  Check out the challenge and fabulous cards by the team at Power Poppy Blog

Shabby and Chic Stamp set and Digital

The challenge at Power Poppy is Shabby and Chic.  I used some pastel paper from Melissa Frances 5th Ave paper pad and edged to match the flowers. The image is Camellias stamp set from Power Poppy and I colored it with copics in the Y and V, and YG colors.  It's all done in very soft pinks and yellows to match the paper.  I added the corner ribbon and pearls and a Martha Stewart little butterfly punch to finish the card. Come and join in the fun over at Power Poppy and you may win something!! I have a second card next that I used the digital version of this set to make.

This is the digital version of the Camellias and I fancy cut it out after coloring it with Copics. The background is from Sue Wilson's Creative expressions embossing folder and I added some lace and a big bow with some pearls.

Hang some Paper

Hang some paper is the challenge at Power Poppy.    My three papers are from the pretty Prima Fairy Flora collection.  I used the gorgeous Poppy stamp set on cryogen white paper and colored them with copics.  I added a strip of card stock in pink and then layered the Spellbinders oval on top.  I hand cut the image out and popped it on the oval.  All the paper is edged in silver pen and I added the bow and flower and pearls to finish the card.

I made this pretty wedding card for my neighbor to use.  I used all Sue Wilson dies and embossing folders for this card and added some ultra fine crystal glitter behind the trellis. Zutter bow it to make the double bow and a peel off best wishes. All of the Sue Wilson dies and embossing folders are available through Joan's Garden.

Thinking of you

I made this card for the challenge at Power Poppy and for my friend who has been in the hospital for months. I used Dancing with Daffodils digital image from Power Poppy and printed it on text cryogen white paper. I colored them copic markers and fancy cut them out. I used the center flower from another of the images and layered it over the bouquet.  The die cuts are from Sue Wilson's collection of New York Herald Square and got those from  Joan's Garden.   I used my Sutter bow maker and added some pearls to the center and the tag is a spellbinders.  The background is also from Sue Wilson and it's the beaded fanfare which Joan's Garden can order for you as well.
