Power Poppy Friday Fun Day


I have a BIG post for you today as it is Friday Fun Day at Power Poppy.
I am not sure how you crafters have been doing during this time of being safe at home, but it has affected me somewhat.  I find that my mojo has left and I am not crafting much.  A friend recently called it 
Covid No Jo.  I think I got it.  But I was able to make a few cards that I will show you on this post today. 
This is the stamp called Hellebores and I used Prismacolor pencils and a little Gamsol.
The base of Gina K Designs cardstock in Dusty Rose. The die is Spellbinder Venise Lace. 
The digital set is on sale! 

This digital set is called Garden Fireworks.  It reminds me of the 4th of July.  
  For this card, I used Copic markers and a fun background that reminds me of 
dandelion seeds floating in the air. I made a stencil of circles and colored it with a fingertip 
sponge and inks. The die that I used is  Anjas Square by Marianne. 



Last for this card I used the Digital set called Bowl of Beauty. Yes, it is on sale too. 
This was color with Copic and Prismacolor pencils 
The background was dry embossed with a folder and layer on the base of Gina K Design card stock tomato soup.  I die cut the image with Spellbinder Chantilly Paper Lace die. 

Here are the team members that have more Friday Fun for you.

Double D Challenge - Use Your Scraps

Welcome to another challenge at Double D and it is a fun one.
Diane is your host and this is the inspiration board for you.

I knew what I was going to do for this one as soon as I saw this board.


 I had a stamp and die that I have not used in quite a while and I pulled it out.  Along with lots of scraps to make this challenge work. The set is from Paper Trey Ink and it is called Quilted Spring.

I die cut it from may different scraps and then went to town paper piecing them back into the negative. You will see what I mean if I show you.
Here is the set of note cards that I made.





These will make a handy little gift for someone.
