Power Poppy is to Embellish your cards. I used the stocking from the Poinsettia set to make this card. I colored it in copics and edged everything with a Krylon silver pen. The die cuts are from Becca's spellbinders and Cheery Lynn designs. I used an Anna Griffin cuttlebug for texture in the background.

Power Poppy is to Embellish it!!! I used the Heaven and Nature Sing stamp set and colored it with copics after cutting it out with a Cheery Lynn oval. The oval, holly branch, and poinsettia are all from Cheery Lynn Designs and the other dies are from Creative Expressions Sue Wilson's designs. I used a Krylon gold pen to outline all of the dies and the edge of the background which is a Anna Griffin Ogee Damanask embossing folder. I get all my Sue Wilson's dies from Joan's Garden.

Sue Wilson's blog for the new Creative Expressions dies and ideas. I love her cards even though they are huge, UK size cards and I try and use some of her ideas for the US size cards that I make. I started this card with a 5x7 soft champagne gold card (it's not really white) added a layer of black and then I added a layer of gold linen foil that I got from Michaels or one of the big box stores. I pierced it with my new rectangle piercing die from Cheery Lynn. I then added the Polynesian Sails oval doily in the soft gold and added some pearls. The trees are from Sue Wilson's winter trees at Joan's Garden website. You can click on Creative Expression, Sue Wilson and find tons of wonderful dies and card ideas with them. After watching the video on Sue's blog I cut and embossed the trees and the Merry Christmas in black and then added some soft gold gilding wax to them and to the Merry Christmas. This is definitely not a normal color combo for me but it's so striking in real life and I think I may do some more of this color combo. Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out all the dies and ideas on Sue's blog.

The second card is is a Marianne die on the bottom and Sue Wilson lavender border and I used a large scalloped square to cut it out to show the white embossed snowflake background, the Peace on Earth is Sue Wilson. I just punched a couple of snowflakes from a Martha Stewart punch and added lots of pears to finish the card.

Sue Wilson, Creative expressions snowflake border and tag set to make this card after her watching her video. I covered the background with a sticky sheet and used some very fine glitter after embossing it with a snowflake folder which doesn't show up on the photo. The ribbon is a holographic sparkle ribbon and the saying is a peel off sticker. You can purchase a lot of the Sue Wilson dies from Joan's Garden.
Power Poppy is to use part of an image on your creation. I used this image from the So Grateful collection and colored it with copic markers. I used a Spellbinders labels 28 to cut the portion out and back it. The corners and tag are from the Sue Wilson collection by Creative expressions. I added some DP behind the image and a sticky lace accent across it, To finish the card I just added a pearl to each corner. Be sure to check out all the fun challenges over at Power Poppy and add to your collection of stamps and digital images.

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!!

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.

Cheery Lynn this week and I used the Coved rectangle scalloped dies for this card and edged them all in gold. The beautiful orchid image is from Power Poppy and colored with copics and then I added some stickles to the leaves to enhance them. I used colors in the Sky is the limit challenge for this at Power Poppy. I added a bow that was made from the Zutter bow maker. This was my first time using the bow maker and I think I need some more practice, LOL I colored the ribbon using the same marker that I colored the image with.

Power Poppy. I made this card for the Peep of the week challenge also on Power Poppy. The rose image is from the La Vie Rose collection and I just added a peel off saying but there are several digital sayings you can use as well. The dies are from Cheery Lynn and they are part of the French Flair collection. I just added some bling to finish the card. Power Poppy is having their sneak peeks this week for the new stamps coming out on Feb 1, be sure to join in the fun!!!!
Joan's Garden. Terri can order anything you want and get it fairly quick. I used a sticky sheet under the border on this and then covered it with the glitter flakes. I will tell you to be careful when you tape your die in place, that's why I have lace at the top and bottom of this card, the tape left a residue and then all the flakes stuck to it and made a mess, so I just covered them up with the lace and beads.

I added a pre-made flower and a bow to finish the card.

The Shabby Tea Room challenge this month. The heart is a Marianne die and the corners are spellbinders. I added lots of bling with little heart peel off borders and frosted pearls. The saying is a gold peel off and the white backing on the heart is a glitter paper which doesn't show in the picture.
