Power Poppy Winter Pick Me Up

Hi Friends! 

With our snow storm this week, I had a chance to spend some time in my stamping studio and wanted to create a card for the Power Poppy March “Let’s Go Green”Challenge. 

I decided to print out a few of the Power Poppy digital stamps- the floral image from Winter Pick Me Up and the sentiment from Rose & Chamomile.  I have owned both of these Power Poppy digi stamps for quite a while but had not had a chance to play with them yet- I thought that the snow day would be a great reason to do so :-).  

I decided to use the retired Stampin’ Up! My Digital Studio software to import the images before printing but you can also use Word or other photo editing software to insert the photo file and crop, rotate, etc.

Again, if you have not stopped by any of the challenge sites yet, I hope you will find the time to do so- fantastic inspiration from all!!

To create this card:

1). Print the digital images from Power Poppy Winter Pick Me Up and Rose & Chamomile using Black Printer Ink onto white cardstock.

2). Die cut the Winter Pick Me Up image with a MFT Die-namics Stitched Die and watercolor the image with watercolor pencils and water based markers.  Add white highlights with an extra fine white paint pen and shimmer to the petals with a clear shimmer pen.

3). Mount the panel onto black cardstock, trim close to the edge and hand cut the curved corner.  Adhere the layered panel onto the olive card front and mount onto a white card base.

4). Trim the sentiment, create the banner (I used a hexagon punch), mount onto black cardstock and adhere to the card front using dimensional foam to finish off the card.
