HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Hello all and HAPPY NEW YEAR! And, on this first post of mine for 2015, do I have a treat for YOU! There's a whole new crop of sketches over at Pagemaps.com's CardMaps! So, if you need a little help with your mojo, or just want to try a new layout, head on over HERE and see all the cardmaking fun you could have! 

The fun thing about these latest sketches is the fact Power Poppy's Bloom Brigade took the sketches and put their creative spin on them! Want to see my creation?


Above is my card and below is the Cardmaps Sketch! 


Instead of hearts, I simply used one of Power Poppy's Digital stamps called Winter Pick Me Up in the lower right corner. I printed it directly on decorative paper and then added a splash of color thanks to Copic Markers. I used YG03, G20, YG13, E23, B02, B00, BG0000. Once I was done coloring, I did add a bit of razzle dazzle thanks to some glitter glue! I also used BG0000 around my image to highlight it and then blended with a colorless blender. 

See?


The papers I used were a mix of My Mind's Eye, Bo Bunny and Bazzill. The ribbon is May Arts and the die is one of the Fancy Tag dies from Spellbinders! While the die was still on my paper, I did sponge some Adirondack Willow ink around the die. Add a few Prima sparkly gems and start matting it all up!

The sentiment is from the Sassy Succulents Power Poppy stamp set. It just fit perfectly in the center of my die cut ribbon slide. Don't you think?


And that, my friends, is it! Like I said, the Bloom Brigade took this latest round of sketches for a test drive. Again, you can find the sketches HERE. And, after you've taken a gander at the sketches, roll on over to these talented ladies below to see their spin on these different layouts!
