It's Power Poppy Friday!

Hi all!  It's Friday, which means there's a little Power Poppy fun on the ole blog today for all of you! Earlier this week, did you see the Inspire Me Monday tutorial I posted? Well, if you missed it, you can click HERE to check it out because, my friends, this is the basis for this week's Creative Confetti challenge! So, two bits of fun! And, on top of that, I have a bonus creation here for you today using the same technique!

On to my creations! 

Just to give you a little bit of my tutorial this week, I showcased a super duper easy peasy way to create a graphic card with lots of visual punch! And, the MISTI stamping tool was key. If you keep your stamp positioned in this tool, it allows you to stamp overtop a previously stamped image, which opens up some different design possibilities, like the one I showcased! In a nutshell, you stamp the image, color it using a fine-tip black pen and then, situating it in the same way as when you initially stamped the image, stamp the image again using embossing ink and then heat emboss using a detail embossing powder. You get an embossed silhouette that is super quick, yet impactful! I started with the Power Poppy Vibrant Thanks stamp set for all three of my creations.

Isn't that fun? I just love that sweet little flower. The sentiment I added is from Power Poppy's Lilac Time stamp set. 

Now for a closeup of that Zinnia after I stamped with Versamark and added that detail back in with white detail powder. I just love the depth! I also added a sentiment that I also heat embossed. The sentiment is also from the Vibrant Thanks set as well.

And, here's a third card that I just made last night using vibrant shades of purple and the third flower in the Power Poppy Vibrant Thanks stamp set. I was inspired by Theresa Pollack's card HERE that she made after giving this tutorial a try. I love just how many different color combos you can try with this -- endless opportunities!!

I love that this technique delivers a design punch without a ton of effort. These cards took minutes to create and are the perfect way to create a little snail mail love in a jiffy!

So, if you want to give this technique a try, please do and then, click on over HERE to enter it in this week's Creative Confetti Challenge! Then, you'll be in running for a $25 gift code to the Power Poppy Shop! So, get those fingers inky and play along with me!

These lovely ladies also have a little Power Poppy eye candy to share, so be sure to hop on over and see what they have in store!

What a clever technique! That black/white with pops of color is so lovely. And perfectly "on trend" as the young folks say! :)

Thanks to these samples and the Creative Confetti challenge, I was reminded of one of my favorite techniques. I love to do everything digitally - and it was fun recreating this technique digitally. lol. You inspire me!

I thought the two previous cards where gorgeous but this purple one beats them by far. I love the third card!
I will give this a try, but have to have time first to do it. I let you know when I did.
Thank you so much for sharing Julie and have a wonderful weekend.

Your cards are just amazing Julie, as always! This was a great challenge, I still need to give it a try!

Thank you for always being so inspiring!
