winter bough

Hi everyone.  I think I can come up for air now.  I have all my SCS cards posted for the month, and now I can focus on Christmas cards for me and for my orders, along with several birthday cards that have been requested.  This is also my last month being on the DD Team over at Splitcoaststampers. I can't believe how fast 6 months have gone. It has been a great journey, it has really made me think outside the box at times for each month theme.

Okay, so onto my card.  I'm using today a Power Poppy image from the set Bough Wow Wow! I am entering this card into their monthly challenge for November - Embellish this.

I stamped it onto some white cougar 100 lb c/s then coloured using copics.  I then cut the image out using spellbinders labels twenty-eight. This was then layered onto some Scenic Route & NRN designer paper.

For finishing touches I stamped off another heart (this comes separately in the set - love that!)  and coloured, then used some foam tape to pop it up, added some sequins and glitter, and there you have it!

stamp- Power Poppy - Bough Wow Wow
ink - black memento, copics - YG00, YG03, YG05 YG67, G82, BG0000, BG10, BG11, BV0000, BV01, BV02, B60, B63, B66
dies - spellbinders labels twenty-eight
paper - cougar white, bazzill purple, scenic route - winter words, NRN - winter magic
misc - sequins, glitter, foam tape, stitching

Thanks for stopping by today, have a wonderful day.  I'm off to the dentist, then home for a day of stamping! Yay!! (it's raining so it's a perfect day to stamp don't you think?)

This is a stunning card. The colors are really beautiful. I have yet to get my set inky, but now I am truly inspired!

Dang, Pauline, this is gorgeous! Now, of course, you've got me wanting to pull this set out again. It's one of my faves from last year. You chose the perfect die shape for it and then you did that amazing coloring that I always love to see when I visit you. Love those chilly blues, and the extra heart you cut out looks so puffy and dimensional. Sheesh, when am I going to do all the stamping you inspire me to do? That 6 months did seem to go by in a flash. It might seem like you have a little extra time now.

Oh, Pauline! Yes, the time sure does fly, but I know you've had a wonderful time on the DD team and really shined! And wow, I love this card! Your coloring is gorgeous, and I love the color palette with this gorgeous DP! And the extra heart popped is beautiful. It's a gorgeous card, my friend! Hugs!

Tracy said...

Beautiful! I love the frosty colors you chose. Sounds like you've got a full crafting plate. Have fun! Hugs!
