Power Poppy June Challenge - Round and Round

When I saw this month's Power Poppy challenge on Kathy Jones' blog I knew I wanted to play along.  I have several sets of gorgeous Power Poppy stamps that I haven't had a chance to use yet - most of them I was inspired to buy after seeing various cards on Kathy's blog! So thanks for the enabling!

I used a large image from the "Go Wild" stamp set to stamp onto Copic friendly paper. Then I pulled out my Copics and began to play. I'm still a beginner at using Copic markers but what I'm discovering is that, for me, a limited colour palette words best. Once it was coloured, I die cut it using a circle die. Then I die cut a stitched circle from some Stampin Up cardstock to use as a mat. I die cut a stitched  rectangle (die from Mama Elephant) and used some glitter texture paste through a Tim Holtz dotted stencil for my background.


I assembled all the pieces of my card, added a sentiment from "Lavender" and then some buttons and sequins from 28 Lilac Lane.

For my next card, I stamped the glass jar and cupcake images from "Under Glass" onto Copic friendly cardstock and then coloured them with my Copics. As before, I die cut my coloured image into a circle and then used a stitched circle die as a mat. I found some scraps of Basic Grey (long time favourite company and still sad that they're no longer around) and cut them into strips for my background.

 I also cut a smaller stitched rectangle and used the same glitter paste through it. I adhered the rectangle to my background then added the circle. I stamped a sentiment from "Under Glass" and die cut it to a circle as well. I then finished my card with some buttons and sequins from 28 Lilac Lane.
