Way to Grow!

Super cute sentiments accompany this great new stamp set by Marcella Hawley by Power Poppy!

DPK_PP_FarmersMarketGrow_wm

I used Farmers Market to create this card.  I stamped the group of veggies and sentiment using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copic markers.

I cut out the image and mat with Spellbinders dies and sponged the edges of the panel with Wheat ink from a Dew Drop with the Classic Squares Lg die still in place.  The fun patterned paper is from the Crate Paper Farmhouse pad.

So many fun creations to check out today!

Pixies

Happy Friday morning!  Hope you have fun plans for this Labor Day weekend!  I did…however, we decided to cancel our plans to stay home and get our driveway done.  Not fun, but necessary…and I will most definitely enjoy and larger and level, not to mention nicer place to park my car!

Today A Day For Daisies is showcasing adorable pixies!  I have Tiny Pixie Daisy to share with you today!

DPK_ADFD_TinyPixieDaisy

I colored this sweet little pixie with Copic markers and added shading around the image with Prismacolor pencils and odorless mineral spirits.  I sponged the panel edges with a VersaMagic Dew Drop in Wheat with the Spellbinders die still in place.    Hard to tell in this photo, but I added a bit of sparkle to each daisy with a Stardust Gelly Roll pen and a drop of Crystal Effects in the center.

Super cute samples can be found on these ladies blogs below!

DPK_PP_Countrysidebouquet_wm

I stamped the cosmo stem on patterned paper from the Pink Paislee pad Butterfly Garden.  I colored the image with Copic markers.  Then I stamped a sentiment under the stem from the Geraniums Take Two stamp set.   I used Prismacolor pencils and oms to shade around the image and sponged around the panel with Distress Ink in Brushed Corduroy.   I used multiple flowers and a bit of a lace doily to embellish. 

Lots of beautiful creations to see when you visit these Bloom Brigade ladies below!

Full of fun colors and veggies…very inspiring!

I love coloring up these Fancy Beets! I love eating them too!

 

DPK_ADFD_FancyBeets

I used Copic markers on the image and shaded around it with Prismacolor pencils and oms.  I lightly sponged around the image panel with Wheat ink from a VersaMagic Dew Drop.   I computer generated the image and added a strip of patterned paper underneath it.  The paper is from the Basic Grey Up Beat paper pad.  It has little beets on it…or maybe radishes, but oh so cute!

Please join us on the A Day For Daisies blog and play along!

So many adorable edibles to provide even more inspiration below!

Getting Ready for Back to School!

Oh my, I am so late today!  I had everything ready to go for today’s post and then forgot to schedule it!  Forgive me, for the summer is almost over and I was getting giddy thinking of the boys back in class!
Here is my adorable Happy School House from A Day For Daisies.  This weeks release is full of super cute school images!
DPK_happyschoolhouse
I printed my image a little smaller than usual and colored it up with Copic markers.  I die cut it using Spellbinders and sponged the panel with the die still in place.   I mounted it on this fun patterned paper from the Basic Grey Oxford paper pad.  I stamped the sentiment from another company and cut out the w0rds separate and popped them up.  I just adore this cutie-but wait until you see what Juliana has to show you today!  Love it!

Pop Goes the World

PopGoesTheWorldGFX-2
Happy Friday folks!  Today please join Power Poppy in the Pop Goes the World challenge.  All you have to do is create a card using colors from the graphic. 
DPK_PP_PPWorld2_wm
I used the pretty bouquet from the Sunny Harvest stamp set.   I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copic Markers.  I used Classic Ovals from Spellbinders to cut out the image and layer behind it.   All of the patterned paper is from the MME Summer Fresh.  I hand cut some banners from scraps and added a few fun buttons and a twine bow. 
All of the Bloom Brigade ladies below have fun samples to share with you today!

Fairy Wishes

Good Friday morning!  Today I have another fun image to share from the August Club Kit by A Day For Daisies.
It’s also a challenge today, and that’s to use Glossy Accents on your project.  Piece of cake!
DPK_ADFD_FairyWishes
I printed this cutie, Fairy Wishes, on white card stock and colored her with Copic markers.   I made the flowers on her dress with the tip of a Y21 marker and the white center with a Gel pen.   I coated her wings and wand with Glossy Accents and poured on the ultra fine glitter, then I used a Quickie Glue pen  to add lots of extra glitter falling from her wand.   I hand cut the sentiment (from an old wood mounted stamp in my stash) and added it to the banner I cut.  All of the patterned paper is from the Simple Stories Vintage Bliss paper pad.
Check out the creations from the other design team ladies and then head on over to the ADFD Blog to join in the challenge!
