UnBEETable!

Hello and happy Friday!  Today at A Day For Daisies we are revisiting some fun edibles! 

This weeks challenge is to use the inspiration board when creating your project.

Full of fun colors and veggies…very inspiring!

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

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!

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!

Power Poppy August Hop

Hey everyone, welcome to the August Power Poppy Hop!

PowerPoppyHopGraphic1_MH

Today the Bloom Brigade will recap the week with samples from the August release.
All of the sets are available in the Power Poppy Store today!

DPK_PP_FMCauliflower_wm

I love all of the images in the new Farmers Market set.  This little basket of cauliflower is adorable!  I decided to go for it and make my cauliflower purple.  While I’ve seen purple cauliflower, I’ve never eaten it, but I suspect it tastes the same as white :)

After stamping my image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink I colored it with Copic markers.   I used Spellbinders Labels Twenty Six to cut the image and mat and sponged the image panel with Wheat ink from a VersaMagic Dew Drop with the die still in place.  All of the paper is from the Miss Caroline line, Fiddlesticks pad by MME.

Hop along with all of the Bloom Brigade ladies below!

Lets Get Curvy

Happy Friday! I’m ready to show off a new beauty from the August Club Kit from A Day For Daisies.
This is Curvy Birds.  Curvy, no?

DPK_ADFD_CurvyBirds

I printed this first on white card stock then again on patterned paper, which I used to cut the dress from and pieced onto the white image.   I colored the rest of the image with Copic markers.  I shaded around the image with Prismacolor pencils and oms.

The paper, including the piece for her dress, is all from the Simple Stories Vintage Bliss paper pad.   I used a piece of swiss dot ribbon and added three paper flowers that coordinate with the paper-done!

Pop on over to the ADFD Blog and check out all of the new images.  Visit each link below too and see all the beautiful samples the design team has today!

Power Poppy Day 5

Welcome back to day 5 of the August Power Poppy release!  Today brings you an image you are familiar with from the July digi release plus some new ones and sentiments to match!

PowerPoppy_GeraniumsTakeTwo

Introducing Geraniums Take Two.   Another beautiful fun to color set from Marcella Hawley. 

DPK_PP_GeraniumsTakeTwo_wm

I’m definitely loving the geraniums!   I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copic markers.  I used Spellbinders dies to cut the image panel and mat.  I kept the die in place while I sponged the image panel with Wheat ink from a VersaMagic Dew Drop.   I added some twine and buttons and a few self adhesive pearls to embellish and mounted it on patterned paper from the Simple Stories Summer Fresh paper pad.

These ladies from the Bloom Brigade have a bevy of beauties to share so check them out below!
