Live It Up

A few days ago I featured new stamp sets that I got for my birthday from Power Poppy.  I love the cake in the Party Time stamp set.  I stamped the cake on watercolor paper with Onyx Versafine ink and used clear embossing powder.  I played around with Copics and Zig Clean Brush markers until I was able to get the look that I wanted.  I found background papers that I liked and have three birthday cards ready to go!

Build a Card!

While cleaning the other day in my stamp studio I found this Build-A-Card pad.  I have had it for a while and actually forgot about it.  I decided it was high time to get these cards put together so that they are ready to use.

Power Poppy Stamps

Thank you Shari for introducing me to Power Poppy stamps and for the gift card!  They did a great job on presentation - and love the personalization!  I can't wait to get these new stamps inked up!  I bought the Party Time and Peonies & Tulips stamp sets.

Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday Dona!  Hope you have a great day!  This card was designed by Kristine Vicente, one very talented stamping friend.  The stamp set is Happiness Blooms by Amuse Studio.  It doesn't look like it is available anymore on their website.  I stamped the image with Archival Jet Black ink and then did a bit of watercoloring.

Happy Hues!

A quick thank you card to share with you today.  The Happy Hues notecards came from Concord & 9th but I think they have been discontinued (sorry, I think Doreen bought them ALL!)  They are nice when you want that watercolored background and don't want to take the time to create it!  The stamp & die set is also from Concord & 9th called Being Classy.

Sassy Susan!

My first Easter card came in the mail!  I love how Susan made the sassy ole' gal a spring chick!  The paper piecing for her Spring wardrobe is brilliant!  And check out her matching shoes and glasses!  It made me laugh -  good one Susan!
