What's Up Buttercup?

What's up Buttercups? This card is just for you! We've been hit with some fall rainy weather in my neck of the woods and so I needed to dig up and deliver a little "sunshine!" And so, my friends, here's what I put together for this Power Poppy Friday!

On to my creation....

If this layout looks a weeeeeee bit familiar to you then you have a KEEN eye! I actually made two of these layouts when I put together THIS card and planned to use one of the other sentiments from the Small But Mighty Affirmations set and then, life hit and I never got around to it. After coloring up these itty bitty blossoms from the Cuppa Buttercups digital stamp set, I thought this layout would be a fun one to plop down my colored up and die cut image! 

Here's a close up for you! I have to say, I went on the simple side for coloring and only used a few markers Y06, Y08, Y0000, BG0000, BG11, BG13, YG06 C01, and C03. After I was done coloring, I had to add a little razzle dazzle with some glitter glue! See?

And here's a peek at the inside using the digital sentiment that is a part of the Cuppa Buttercups digital stamp set! I colored up the UP with BG000, BG11 and BG15 for a little ombre effect! 

And that, my friends, is it! Easy peasy lemon squeezy! Well, especially when you have a half done card that you can just plop an image on and it works! ;-) I think I actually might do that and just whip up some layouts and leave the image space blank to make way for those days when the mojo doesn't flow but you really "HAVE" to color! :-)

Before I go, I have some last minute news about a new "pop up" feature over on the Power Poppy Blog! Did you hear about this?

Now it's time to make your way through the roll call below to see what some of the other Bloomies have put on display! 

Thanks for stopping by and spending a bit of your day with me! Hope you have a wonderful weekend ahead! 

See you back here soon!

Oh, Julie, I LOVE this layout, and if it works...keep on repeating from time to time! Love the sweet cup with buttercups and fabulous DP! And I need to use my double-stitched the look. And you've got a great suggestion on finishing the card insides. I need to remember that on days when I feel less creative. Thanks!! Hugs, sweet friend!
