Precious Baby

Hello Everyone!  Here we are - Day FIVE of the Power Poppy Creative and Curious Release!  Finally ALL the sets are available to purchase RIGHT NOW!!  Before you run off to buy your favourite - today the Bloomies have two new clear sets to showcase!!  I'm using this super cute and totally fab new BABY set called Precious Baby!  It comes with three smaller images and sentiments for the latest edition to the family!  I thought this was rather apt considering today is my son's birthday and I'm remembering that little bundle of boy that arrived 13yrs ago!


I've used a base of blue, topped with cream and white and more blue cut with A2 Filigree Delight.  Around this are pieces of white and blue ribbons.  I've stamped this cut pea pod image from Precious Baby in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics.  I've cut this with the oval die from A2 Filigree Delight, matted with green cut with Elegant Ovals and matted again with cream cut with Labels 25.  I've popped this panel up on X-press It Foam Tape.  The sentiment is also from Precious Baby, die cut with Large Circles and airbrushed with YG23 Copic and also popped up on foam tape.  To finish I've added a blue bow!

Cheerful Columbine


Hello Everyone!!  It's Day Four of the fabulous new Power Poppy Release!!  Today we have three new sets to sneak peek and I'm using a new clear set called Cheerful Columbine!  This big, bold image is a lot of fun to colour and of course you don't have to use the whole image - it's perfect for cropping too!

I've used an aqua base and topped it with brown spotty paper matted with dark purple card.  Around this I've added hessian ribbon and green satin ribbon.  The image and sentiment from Cheerful Columbine has been stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with a whole range of Copics!  :)  I've cut this out with a stitched rectangle die and matted with more of the dark purple card and popped the whole thing up on X-press It Foam Tape.  To finish I've add a few drops of silver crystal drops.

Always Here


Hello Everyone!  It's sneak peek week at Power Poppy and there are an AMAZING ELEVEN brand new sets!!  Today I'm using Always Here and I've decided to take the large image and cut it up into three small squares to create a different look! 



I've gone with a light and fresh feel using a base of white and layering with aqua card and topping with embossed white.  Next I've stamped the large image from Always Here in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and then cut three squares of it to showcase various parts.  I've coloured each of these with Copics and then die cut the trio square strip of white card and matted it with aqua card.  The sentiment is also from Always Here, stamped in black and then die cut with a stitched tag die and put under the long panel.  To finish I've added three rhinestones to the corner.

For the Coffee Lovers!


Hello Everyone!  Today the Bread Basket are playing with the latest release stamps and dies from Our Daily Bread Designs!  This month, I've been playing with all things COFFEE!!  There's a new fun Stamp and Die Duo Set called Hug in a Mug!  Full of super cute coffee themed sentiments and two awesome coffee cup images with MATCHING DIES all included!!  I'm loving the duo sets!

My first card has a cream base, a light brown layer, more cream and then a panel of dark paper from Latte Love paper pad.......yeppers, ODBD has coffee themed paper as well!!!  I've then added a patterned paper layer using Latte Love, a panel of dark brown and then another panel of the patterned paper.  The two rectangular panels have been cut using Double Stitched Rectangles Dies.  The sentiment and coffee cup from Hug in a Mug have been stamped in black, I've coloured the cup with Copics and cut the sentiment out with Double Stitched Circles Dies.  To finish I've added a couple of buttons.

Stamps - Hug in a Mug Stamp/Die Duo
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper - ODBD Latte Love Paper Pad, Cream, Brown
Accessories - ODBD Dies: Double Stitched Rectangles, Double Stitched Circles, Hug in a Mug Stamp/Die Duo, Copics, Hessian Ribbon, Buttons, X-press It Foam Tape



My second project is actually a Gift Bag without the handles!  I really wanted a box rather than bag and this was perfect!  I've used Card Caddy and Gift Bag Dies to cut panels of cream.  I've added a horizontal strip of burnt orange from Latte Love.  Next I've die cut the patterned paper with Double Stitched Rectangles and matted with dark brown.  Around this I've added some hessian (burlap) ribbon.  The sentiment and coffee cup from Hug in a Mug have been stamped in Rich Cocoa and I've used some Latte Love paper on the coffee cup instead of colouring it this time for a different look than the one above.  The sentiment has been cut out with Double Stitched Circles Die and then popped up on foam tape.

Tag Trio!


Hello Everyone! This month ODBD released a cute die set called Mini Cups and Mugs and it is so much fun!!  These tiny little dies are perfect for little accents or tags and have so many mix and match bits that I decided to make a set of tags with them!

For all three tags I've used the same die sets - Mini Cups and Mugs, Rounded Rectangles, Double Stitched Rounded Rectangles, Pierced Circles and Pennant Flags - and then used different paper for each one.  I've kept the circles blank so I can write the name on them when required!


The first one is a bit more masculine with a coffee theme, matching it up with Latte Love Paper Pad.


The second one, I've gone more girly/ teen with pinks and teals and created a thickshake/milkshake diecut accent.  You can't really see in this picture, but the top of the cup I've used the ice-cream/cream top and then cut the cup lid out of vellum to make the clear cup lid.  The paper on this tag is from Beautiful Blooms!


The last one, I've gone with a Teacup Theme with a more elegant feel.  I was thinking of my mother who gathers with her friends each week for morning tea and they get out their lovely china cups and saucers.  Mum has some beautiful cup, plate and saucer sets so I've used some pretty Shabby Rose paper to create the cup and saucer and silver paper for the spoon.

Stamps - NONE
Ink - NONE
Paper - Latte Love, Beautiful Blooms, Shabby Rose, Cream, Pink, Green, Brown, White
Accessories - Rounded Rectangles, Double Stitched Rounded Rectangles, Pierced Circles, Pennant Flags, Mini Cups and Mugs

That's all from me today, thanks for visiting and hope you are inspired to die cut!

To The World....



Hello Everyone!  As you know Mother's Day is fast approaching so it's time to get cracking on those cards!  Today I've been playing with a new set by ODBD called The Greatest Gift which is full of sentiments perfect for mothers!  It also has these sweet decorative butterfly stamps and matching dies (included in the set) in three sizes (the ones I used are the smallest.  :)

I really love this sentiment because it is SO TRUE!!  When you are a small child, of course your mother really is your world (sigh, I remember when my kids used to look at me like that!),  then you grow up and realise that the world is a big place, but the older you get the more you realise how much your Mum (or Mom) really is your world forever.  Can you tell I really love my Mum?!  :)

I've matched The Greatest Gift Stamp/Die Duo with some cream and dusty pink card and two pieces of this lovely paper called Romantic Roses Paper Pad, some pinkish ink and sparkle in the form of Glitter Deco Tape and some rhinestones!  The sentiment is diecut with Double Stitched Squares also from ODBD!

Stamps - The Greatest Gift (ODBD)
Paper - ODBD Romantic Roses Paper Pad, Cream, Sweet Sugarplum
Ink - Purple Wine
Accessories - ODBD Dies: Double Stitched Squares, The Greatest Gift Dies (Butterflies), X-press It Glitter Deco Tape (mermaid tones), Rhinestones, X-press It Foam Tape

That's all from me today, thanks for popping by and hope you are inspired to stamp!  :)

Beachy Tote and Pocketbook


Hello Everyone!  If you've been following my blog you'll know that ODBD have released some gabby new dies this month - Timeless Tote, Timeless Tote Layers and Petite Pocketbook.  Well I'd been playing around in my craft room and even though it's *supposed* to be Autumn here in Australia, we had such a hot week that it felt like Summer, which made me think that I could make the Timeless Tote into a Beach Bag!  I went digging into my paper and found ODBD's By The Shore Collection and used the surfboard paper with it's bold, bright colours and cut that with the Timeless Tote Layers.  The sentiment is from Aloha stamp set and for those of us not familiar with Hawaiian language, this means Happy Birthday - how fun is that!  To accent and add even more POP, I created a flower with Hibiscus Die and Tropical Leaves Die.


Due to the size of the surfboards on the paper, I couldn't really make a matching Petite Pocketbook without chopping them into tiny pieces.  I've used the 'sand' paper that was at the bottom of the surfboard paper and matched it with this super cute palm tree paper from By The Shore Collection.  I've finished it with a decorative brad.



Both the Tote and the Pocketbook have been created from Kraft Cardstock to give a nice natural/beachy feel.  :)

Stamps - Aloha (ODBD)
Ink - Versafine Black
Paper - ODBD By The Shore, Kraft, So Saffron, Wild Wasabi
Accessories - ODBD Dies: Timeless Tote, Tote Layers, Petite Pocketbook, Hibiscus, Tropical Leaves; Decorative Brad, X-press It High Tack Tape, X-press It Clear Gel Glue

That's all from me today, thanks for visiting and hope you are inspired to stamp!  :)

Rosy Tote!


Hello Everyone!  Today I'm playing with the new Timeless Tote and Timeless Tote Layers Dies from Our Daily Bread Designs!  I seriously love these dies and I love the finished results!

I decided to go with a pretty rose theme using ODBD's Shabby Rose Collection and matched it up with cream card and a bit of Blushing Bride. I've used the cream card to cut the base pieces and some silver card for the buckle pieces using Timeless Tote.  I've used the Timeless Tote Layers Dies to cut all the Shabby Rose pieces and the Blushing Bride pieces for the handles.

For those who've asked the measurements are 5 inches across and 6 inches high to the top of the handles so it's such a great size and I'm sure I'll have another one of these made very soon!!

You can check out more inspiration at the ODBD BlogFacebook and Instagram!

Stamps - None
Ink - None
Paper - ODBD Shabby Rose Collection, Cream, Blushing Bride, Silver
