My Parachute

Happy Sunday! It's time for a new challenge over at the Sunday Stamps blog and this week we have a fun sketch from Claire!

For my card I grabbed a set from MFT that I recently bought, I just thought these little bunnies were so cute! Once again I went with my favorite summer color combo, blue and yellow with a touch of gray. Nice and simple!

Make sure to head over to the Sunday Stamps blog to see what the rest of the DT came up with (and give some extra love to our two new design team members Deb and Erin!) and then play along with us, we'd love to see how you interpret the sketch!

Christmas Joy for Power Poppy

Happy Monday! It's time for a new Blossom Challenge over at the Power Poppy blog and this month Christine is challenging us with a theme of Glassy-Eyed. She wants us to use an image that is in glass or under glass, or if you're really creative create a glass vase, snowglobe or cloche over any Power Poppy image!

For my card I used the digital stamp from Tabletop Tree.  This image features a bottlebrush tree under a glass cloche and it reminds me of some of the Christmas decorations my grandparents had on their Christmas tree. When color the ornaments I tried to stick with colors that felt "old timey" to me.

Coloring glass is definitely not something I'm an expert at! I tried to picture this decoration on a table with a wall behind it, so I used copic T markers along with a C00 and the blender pen to create lines and shadows in the glass. Is it perfect? Definitely not but for coloring I rarely do I think it will work :)

Make sure you head on over to the Power Poppy blog to check out the challenge, check out the list of glassy images that are being discounted for this month's challenge and then play along! Playing along with a Power Poppy image puts you in the running to win a $20.00 gift certificate to the Power Poppy store!
