It's a Celebration!

Hello sweet peeps! Are you excited to get into your crafting spaces today to let the creativity swirl?

It's World Card Making Day!

And.... to help you get in the groove, Power Poppy just released 10 -- yes TEN -- new digital stamp sets yesterday full of fall flair! CLICK HERE to see the gorgeous sets and CLICK HERE to see Marcella's post yesterday showing off some of the beautiful creations that some of the Bloomies and Instant Gardeners created for this release! Maybe I can even help enable you to pick a few up at the Power Poppy Shop to create some autumnal masterpieces in your own stamping spaces!

To help you creatively enjoy this beautiful season and add some beautiful fall-themed cards to your stash, Power Poppy is ushering in a little WORLD CARD MAKING DAY CHALLENGE! 

  • Create on this World Card Making day with a fall theme in mind!
  • Enter your card twice if you create with fall in mind and use a sentiment that shares a theme of gratitude!
  • Enter your card three times if you create with fall in mind, use a sentiment of gratitude AND use a Power Poppy stamp!
  • Link up your creation below so we can all see!

On to my creation!

For my card, I downloaded one of Power Poppy's new images called Dazzling Display! Some of these images were well-loved in the Power Poppy clear set called So Grateful.  I absolutely adore these illustrations! I decided to blow up the dahlia image, change the color to burnt orange and then print on a piece of orange dotted decorative paper to create my own bit of coordinating decorative paper. Then, I pulled the corner image into Photoshop Elements and used two of them to form an oval shape that I later die cut using a stitched oval die. I colored it all up with Copic markers, accenting with a bit of white gel pen! 

I should mention that the sentiment was stamped using Nautical Navy Memento ink and adorned with two little enamel dots. Because I wanted a linear sentiment, I stamped this one from the Olive and Oak Expanded clear set. 

So, just as the challenge suggested, I used a fall theme, sprinkled in a little gratitude and, of course, reached for Power Poppy digital and clear stamps to get the job done!
