October Power Poppy Hop

PowerPoppyHopGraphic1_MH

It’s that time of the month when you get to hop around and see all of the beautiful creations the Bloom Brigade has to share from all of the new October sets from Power Poppy.

DPK_PP_BottleBrushfalala_wm

I chose another beautiful image from the Bottlebrush Holiday stamp set.   Colored with Copic markers and cut with a Spellbinders die…shaded with the die still in place, and same with the sentiment.  I painted over the bottle brush tree with glitter paint and added dimension and shine to the turquoise ornament with Glossy Accents.

I deliberately added tons of air bubbles to the Glossy Accents to give the ornament the vintage hand made feel.  No, no I didn’t.  But I’d like to think I did, lol!  The patterned paper is from the Basic Grey Jovial pad.

I really love all of the new sets and I hope you hop around and see them all!

Poinsettia

This is one of my favorite new sets from the October release from Power Poppy.  I love me a pretty poinsettia!

PowerPoppy_Oct_Poinsettia

The image contains one beautiful big poinsettia bloom and pomegranates.  It’s a gorgeous combination.

After I colored my image with Copic markers I trimmed it closely. Then I used a Krylon Gold paint pen and edged it.  I used the gold edging again around the sentiment.    I painted over each pomegranate  and the poinsettia center with iridescent translucent paint to give them a soft shimmer.   You can see it in the image below.

I yet again went to my Authentique Festive paper pad for this layout.  I used a Spellbinders  lacey circles die for a mat under the image.

All of the new sets are available today at Power Poppy!    For more inspiration visit each Bloom Brigade ladies below!

Frosted Gingerbread

It’s day three of the October sneak peeks from Power Poppy!  This is a yummy one!

Introducing…

PowerPoppy_Oct_Frosted_Gingerbread

This was so much fun to color! 

DPK_PP_FrostedGB_wm

I chose the candy strip knowing it would make a pretty border.  I colored it up with Copic markers and sponged around the edges with Wheat ink from a VersaMagic Dew Drop.  I added clear micro beads to the gum drops to make them look sugar coated.  You can see it in the close up below.

The patterned paper is from the Jillibean Soup Christmas Eve Chowder pad.   I trimmed one edge of the brown printed paper with a scalloped edge border punch.   I stamped the sentiment and sponged the edges of that panel to match the main image.

See all of the yumminess from the Bloom Brigade ladies below.

Joyful Arrangements

Good morning!  Today is another sneak peek from the Power Poppy October Release.  This one is Joyful Arrangements.

PowerPoppy_Oct_JoyfulArrangements

This new set contains several fun holiday arrangements. 

DPK_PP_JoyfulArrangements_wm

I colored this image with Copic markers and cut it out with a die from Spellbinders.  With the die still in place I sponged around the image with Wheat ink from a VersaMagic Dew Drop.

The beautiful patterned paper is from the Authentique Festive pad.  I used a hand cut banner under the matted image and an adhesive pearl at each end.

I love the vintage feel of this and can’t wait to show off the other beautiful images in this set!  Now check out the Bloom Brigades goodies!

Bottlebrush Holiday

Welcome to Saturday and a lovely fall weekend!  Today kicks off the Power Poppy October release.  Full of beautiful holiday images and sentiments…lets start with Bottlebrush Holiday!

PowerPoppy_Oct_Bottlebrush_Holiday

Bottlebrush trees are all the rage these days and they are so beautiful in many different colors.  Just beautiful to create vintage designs!

DPK_PP_BottleBrushHO_wm

I stamped the HO three times on white card stock and colored the bottlebrush wreath with Copic markers.  I cut out each a matted it before layering it over lovely vintage looking patterned paper from the Authentique Festive pad.   I added three strands of hemp twine and a button with some tiny holly leaves I punched to finish it off.  I also added a bit of sparkle to each ornament on the wreaths with a  Spica pen from Copic.
There’s so much inspiration to be found with our Bloom Brigade.  Visit each one below for more!

Not Just For Halloween

Happy Friday!  I have a fun new image from A Day For Daisies today.  This collection is full of sweet cat images…and although they are called Black Cats you could make them any color you want.

Here is Black Cat Four.

DPK_ADFD_BlackCatFour

I began by coloring the entire image with a N0 (neutral zero) Copic marker.  Then I used gray and black Prismacolor pencils blended with OMS to shade the image.  I also used a pink one to shade the outside of the image.  After coloring her tiara pink I painted it with glitter paint and added a tiny sparkly gem.  

I cut out the image with a Spellbinders die and shaded with the die still in place using London Fog ink from Memento.   I added a strip of black lace trim and a button with a large gem set inside of it.  The fun patterned paper is from the Paris Girl pad by Carta Bella.

See the beautiful kitties the team created today!

Flower Maidens

Ooh, I have a really pretty image to share today from A Day For Daisies! These are from the September Club Kit and all of the new images, especially these maidens are lovely!

The image used here is Flower Maiden 3

DPK_ADFD_FlowerMaiden3

I colored up the image with Copic markers and accented the flowers with Stickles.  I shaded around the image with Prisma color pencils and oms.   I also sponged and distressed the panel edges.   The paper is from the Simple Stories Vintage Bliss pad.  A simple paper flower and twine bow finish it off. 

I hope you check out these beautiful new images and show us your creations!  Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend!
