Hi crafty friends and happy Friday! I'm excited to share with you my first time using the gorgeous stamps from Power Poppy. My friend, Nikki, has purchased a lot of their products and every time I'm with her, I "ooh and aah" over their beautiful designs. These stamps are really unlike any other as you can see the heart and love poured into the artful designs by illustrator Marcella Hawley. She is so creatively talented! Power Poppy offers a wide variety of stamps (both physical and digital) as well as coordinating and stand alone dies, many centering around the themes of garden and home. If you missed my recent post talking about digital stamping, please read here. I would like to point out that many of the images are designed to be colored, so be sure you enjoy coloring (whether watercolor, colored pencils or markers) before you consider if these images will work well for you.
First, here is a little bit of information about Marcella Hawley, the illustrator behind Power Poppy. . .
"I got my start illustrating plants as a teenager in my parents’ garden. My mother and muse, Susan, herself a painter and illustrator for Hallmark, was a constant encourager, teaching me about color, design, antiques, horticulture, and Motown. Smitten with skateboarding and music, I learned to skate, got caught up drawing cartoons, photographing the action, designing a skate ’zine with my best friend, soaking up California style by way of magazines, and working in a record store.I got a BFA degree in Graphic Design from University of Illinois, and went on to design and illustrate the catalogs for Klehm Nursery, a premier supplier of rare plants and specialty perennials. After my catalog landed on the desk of the Art Director of Martha Stewart Living magazine, I was offered a job as her assistant in NYC (I may or may not have fainted, as I had been a huge fan). I worked alongside Martha’s visionary team of creatives, designers, writers, gardeners, and stylists.
A Midwestern gal at heart, I later returned to my happy place in the middle of the country, and after launching a freelance design and botanical illustration business, was plucked out again to be the art director for Mary Engelbreit’s Home Companion start-up in St. Louis. Ten years of passionate magazine designing/decorating/crafting/cooking/styling and working with my illustration idol, Mary Engelbreit, followed.
After the birth of my two kids, Lulu and Finn, I started my own design/branding company, Marcella Hawley Creative LLC, working on projects from local to global with equal enthusiasm. I am now married to the love of my life, Doug, step-mom to two rad step-daughters, have my own two wonderful teenagers, a Corgi named Tibbs, and Crema di Espresso the Tortie cat. There are gardens to tend, gourmet meals to cook, exercising to do, kids to drive around, trails to explore, and a home to decorate. It is from this jam-packed, already-not-enough-hours-in-the-day lifestyle that Power Poppy was born."
Here is the Snuggle Down stamp set by Power Poppy that I used to create today's card:
Here are a few of the other Power Poppy stamp sets I just recently purchased for myself and can't wait to use:
I hope you will now enjoy discovering the beautiful products of Power Poppy too.
Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend!
Forget about a white Christmas, I'm dreaming of a purple Christmas! It's only a few shades away from blue anyway, so it's really not that much of a stretch. Sure, it's anything but traditional, but it's fresh and fun and kind of whimsical. By using a slimline card (8 1/2" x 3 1/2") there is enough space to feature all of the images from the Santa's Wonderland stamp set on this winter scene.
The base of this slimline card is made from Gorgeous Grape cardstock. The first layer is cut from the Lawn Fawn Watercolor Wishes paper. Using the Stitched Slopey Joes border dies from Heffy Doodle, I cut two layers of snow from Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. I lined one of the snowbanks with Lawn Fawn Chunky Glitter. I die cut the trees in the background from Lawn Fawn Stitched Trees Border Lawn Cuts in white cardstock. I cut the tree "leaves" from miscellaneous scrap paper in purple stripes and in white glimmer paper (center tree). I stamped all of the images in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on white cardstock and cut them using the coordinating Santa's Wonderland Nice & Neat dies. I colored the images with Copic markers and added highlights to the colored images using a white gel pen. I added the images to the card using 3m foam adhesive for dimension. Lastly, I added a coat of clear Wink of Stella to the images for added sparkle.

What do you think? Have I sold you on a purple Christmas yet?!
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
Hello friends and happy Monday! Welcome back from the weekend! My weekend didn't quite go as planned because I've been plagued with some sort of stomach bug for the better part of the last week. It's hasn't been terrible, but enough so that it leaves me feeling less than my stellar self. I did, however, do a TON of cleaning and re-organizing in my craft room and that felt great! Yes, that also means, I've got over three shoeboxes of stamp sets and dies that will be looking for new homes, so the next time you're at stamp camp, you can do a little discount shopping! This works out well - you get "new" stamps and I get rid of "old" stamps to buy more NEW stamps. See, it's recycling at it's finest! : )
I have been seeing gnomes e-v-e-r-y-w-h-e-r-e this holiday season and I, for one, am here for it! For today's card I borrowed this Gnome for the Holidays stamp set by FSJ/Spellbinders from my friend Nikki the other weekend at our craft retreat, but this set was too cute, that I had to purchase it for myself too!
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. Using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Backdrop, I cut the frame also from Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. I placed a sheet of Bermuda Bay cardstock (retired) behind the frame and heat embossed snowflakes in white embossing powder directly on the blue cardstock. I also added a few white birch trees to the landscape that I cut using the Lawn Fawn Birch Trees Lawn Cuts. I stamped the images from the FSJ Gnome for the Holiday stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Neenah Solar White smooth cardstock. I colored the images using Copic markers and added highlights with a Uni-Ball White Gel pen. I adhered the images to the card using 3M foam adhesive. Lastly, I added a coat of clear Wink of Stella to the gnomes and trees for added sparkle.

Hello and happy Friday! I hope you have fun things planned for the weekend ahead! I'm looking forward to another weekend of designing cards for some upcoming classes. Today I am sharing a card that I created using two stamp sets from RG Avenue. One is a brand new release called Wonder Trees and the other is an older stamp set called Birthday Girl. I added a fun twist to the Birthday Girl stamp set because I colored her with more traditional holiday colors, so this birthday girl is actually going Christmas shopping!
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Rich Cherry cardstock. I cut a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of red plaid cardstock and adhered it directly to the card base. Using the Gina Marie Scalloped Stitched Nesting dies, I die cut a sheet of Neenah White Solar Smooth cardstock in the medium rectangle. I splattered Sweet Blue sugar drops on the white cardstock. The Birthday Girl and Wonder Trees stamp sets I used were both digital, so I printed out the images from my laptop and colored them with my Copic alcohol ink markers. I ran the images through my Scan & Cut machine to die cut them. I adhered the birthday girl with one of the trees to the card using foam adhesive. I colored in the sentiment and added it to the bottom of the card also with foam adhesive. Lastly, I added a coat of Dazzling Pat to the image for lots of extra sparkle.
Here are the two digital stamp sets from RG Avenue that I used to create this card:
Here are the Copic markers I used to color this card:
Thank you for visiting! I hope you have a wonderfully warm and creative weekend!
Hello and happy Friday! Toasty greetings is right! It's freakin' cold out there today and I'm pretty sure we're going to see snow any moment now here in Mass! I hope you have fun things planned for what's looking to be a very chilly weekend ahead. My mom and dear friend Donna arrived on Wednesday night from Maine and California, respectively, and we are heading to a craft retreat in Connecticut with a few other friends for the long weekend. Be sure to follow along on my Instastories for some behind-the-scenes fun!
Today I am sharing two cards that I threw together in very little time because, 1) I had already pre-made the alcohol ink backgrounds, and, 2) I had done all the coloring on a previous retreat! I mention this because coloring is exactly what I'm going to be doing on this craft weekend as well. Yes, for three whole days, I will do nothing but color (and eat and sleep, of course)! I choose to do this because coloring takes up a LOT of time, something that I can never find enough of when I am at home. It also means I don't have to pack a lot of bags for the weekend. I can fit everything I need into one bag versus the multiple bags I used to bring filled with stamps, inks, paper and all the other things.
The base of these A2 sized cards was made from either Gorgeous Grape or Call Me Clover cardstock. I lined the base of the card with pre-made alcohol ink backgrounds (more below). Using the Heffy Doodle Slopey Joe Landscape dies, I die cut two snowbanks from Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. I lined the edges of the snowbank with Lawn Fawn Chunky Glitter. I stamped the sentiment in the lower right corner of each card in either Gorgeous Grape ink or Call Me Clover ink. I die cut the trees using the Lawn Fawn Birch Tree Lawn Cuts and adhered them over the alcohol ink background and tucked them behind the snowbanks. I stamped all of the images from the MFT "Toasty Greetings" stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Neenah Solar White smooth cardstock and die cut them using the coordinating dies. I colored each image with Copic markers and added highlights to the images using a Uniball white gel pen. I adhered all of the images to the card using 3M foam adhesive.
Because I am not currently creating video content and tutorials on my website, I highly recommend checking out this Easy Alcohol Ink Background Tutorial by Jennifer McGuire. She has created a very simple introduction to working with alcohol inks to create some basic backgrounds. This was the first video I watched after purchasing my alcohol inks and then I just spent time playing around with them! The great thing is there is no right or wrong when it comes to art. You just have fun (and usually make a mess) with it! *My only tip would be that you don't need to spend your money purchasing polysynthetic Yupo Paper at nearly $1.00 per sheet. You can use the reverse side of any high quality photo paper (like this one by Kirkland) and achieve the same results!
Here is the "Toasty Greetings" stamp set from My Favorite Things that I used to create today's cards:
There is a lot going on with both of these cards between the alcohol ink backgrounds and the coloring, but when you break it up, it seems less overwhelming. Some simple advice that I can offer, from my own experience, is to dedicate some time for each part of crafting. Pick a day and color. Pick another day and create alcohol ink backgrounds. Pick yet another day for die cutting all the pieces. Make extras of each and set them aside. Then when you want to put a card together, half of the work is already done!
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful weekend!
You guuuysssss, I am overexcited to share today's card with you! I think I made my very favorite Christmas card last weekend! During the holidays, I have always decorated the living room of our house in silver, blues and white. Every year I find these beautiful blue dyed poinsettia's at my local Agway store and it would just help complete the room. No, don't worry, I haven't started decorating yet - I'm a wait until after Thanksgiving girl! But, that color scheme inspired me to create a card using the Altenew Poinsettia & Pine stamp set, and I think it came out simply gorgeous.
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Blueberry Bushel cardstock. I cut a piece of 5 1/4" x 4" gold foil paper and adhered it to the base of the card at an angle. The gold foil paper is key in making this card sparkle with a touch of elegance. I cut a 5" x 3 3/4" piece of Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock and stamped the berries, branches and leaves in Blueberry Bushel and Marina Mist inks. I heat embossed the sentiment in the lower right corner using gold embossing powder. On a scrap piece each of Blueberry Bushel and Marina Mist cardstock I stamped the large poinsettia in Versamark ink and heat embossed it in white embossing powder. Using the coordinating dies, I die cut the poinsettia and adhered it to the center of the card using 3M foam adhesive. I also stamped the pine cone in Versamark ink on kraft cardstock and die cut it out adhering it behind the poinsettias. Lastly, I added some blue rhinestones around the card for added sparkle.
Here is the Altenew Poinsettia & Pine stamp set (with coordinating dies) that I used to create today's card:
And, just in case you like things a little more traditional, I also made the same card in red, green and pink. This one is equally as pretty too, but, the blue is still my favorite!
I hope you have enjoyed today's cards. Do you prefer one color over the other?
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!

My card today features two digital stamp sets from RG Avenue called Donut Worry and Seasonal Mug. I have made Christmas even better by adding donuts and coffee thereby truly making it "the most wonderful time of the year!"
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Sweet Cane sugar stock. Using the Gina Marie Designs Scalloped Stitched Nesting rectangle dies, I cut the first layer from Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. The sentiment is from a piece of Echo Park scrapbooking paper that I cut out and adhered to the center of the card. I printed out two the images from the two RG Avenue digital stamp sets and colored them with my Copic markers. I added highlights to some of the images using a white Uniball gel pen. I adhered the donuts and coffee mugs to the card using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension. Lastly, I put a layer of clear Wink of Stella on the images for added sparkle.

Hi readers! Happy Friday! Yesterday RG Avenue released a beautiful new stamp set called Nostalgic Greetings. I loved this stamp set for it's vintage feel and because it's unlike anything I currently own. I'm already envisioning my next card using this stamp set will be creating a snowy winter scene. I don't usually toot my own horn here, but I'd just like to say that my coloring game is en pointe with that postman! Look at the shading and detail in his shirts and pants. I've really been practicing a lot with my new Copic markers and I'm enjoying them immensely. They have been well worth the investment.
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. The first layer of the card is a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of Sweet Cane cardstock that I stamped the RG Avenue Burlap Print background onto in Sweet Cane ink. I had an old wooden postcard stamp that I stamped on white cardstock and heat embossed in gold embossing powder. I fussy cut this old postcard stamp out and adhered it to the center of the card at an off kilter angle. As the Nostalgic Greetings stamp set is a digital stamp, I printed the images out on Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock and colored the images using Copic markers. I added highlights to the colored images with a white gel pen.
I adhered the images to the card using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension. Lastly, I added a coat of clear Wink of Stella to the images for added sparkle.
Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend!
Hello friends! Today I'm sharing another Lawn Fawn Double Slider Surprise card with you this time featuring a Christmas theme! Last week I shared both a fall themed double slider card and a Halloween double slider card because I've been having so much fun with them. Once I learned how to use this fun interactive die, making these cards became SO much easier. The age old adage is true, "practice really does make perfect." Now to master that Lawn Fawn Magic Picture Changer. . .
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Cherry Cobbler cardstock. I lined the base of the card with a piece of red and green plaid paper. I made the double slider out of Crumb Cake cardstock. In order to assemble the base double slider component I followed the Lawn Fawn Double Slider Introduction video on YouTube by Kelly Marie Alvarez. This step-by-step tutorial is excellent for learning to assemble this die at a beginner level. I stamped all of the images in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock and colored them using Spectrum Noir markers. I also added small detailed highlights to each image with a Uniball white gel pen. I stamped the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler link and notched both ends before adhering it to the card. I also added Lawn Fawn Prisma Glitter to many of the white spaces on the elves and Santa's hat. I always use a Quickie Glue Pen in order to add my Prisma Glitter. *One last thing to note, when you make one of these slider cards, be sure that all of the pieces on the two slider pull-outs (the left and right side) are adhered directly to the card itself. You cannot use foam adhesive to "pop" these images, or the slider will not operate correctly. I only used foam adhesive on the front piece of the slider (for the elf, present, sentiment, reindeer and Christmas tree).
I combined two stamps sets from My Favorite Things in order to complete this card:
I also used the Lawn Fawn stamp set "Push Here" to add instructions to the pull-tabs:
I hope you are enjoying these double slider surprise cards as much as I am.
Thanks for visiting and have a great day!
I'll be enjoying an extra long holiday weekend, so I'll see you back here next Tuesday!

Hello friends! Today I'm sharing this card over on the Butterfly Reflections, Ink blog. Eek! I'll admit that I've been slow to make the jump from fall and Halloween to Christmas cards, because I'm certainly not ready for snow yet, but I also know that yes, Christmas IS coming. . . eventually! And, if I don't start making my Christmas cards now, then I'll never get them finished before I need to mail them.
Today's card features the North Pole Littles by Hello Bluebird. And yes, these "little" images are nearly as tiny as you think! Each elf and reindeer is probably only about 1" tall. This makes coloring real fun!
*Note to self - color BEFORE you die cut, not after. Lesson learned the hard way! : )
This slimline card measures 8 1/2" long x 3 1/2" wide. The great thing about slimline cards is that they will fit into a #10 business sized envelope, so you don't need to worry about additional postage. The base of my card is made from red cardstock. I matted the red cardstock with a 8 1/4" x 3 1/4" piece of Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. At the very top of this white piece of cardstock, I stamped the sentiment "Bring on the Merry" in red ink.
Using the WPlus9 Landscape border dies, I cut four layers out of Neenah Solar White smooth. I lined the top of each "snowbank" with a Lawn Fawn Glue Tube and added Lawn Fawn Chunky Glitter to create a division between snowbanks. I die cut the bare trees from grey cardstock using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Trees border dies. I tucked some of the trees behind the snowbanks. I die cut the mountains from the same grey cardstock using the Hello Sweetums Mountains of Fun dies. I cut the snow peaks from a white sparkle/glimmer cardstock.
I stamped all of the images from the Hello Bluebird North Pole Littles stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock and colored each image with Copic markers. I added highlights to each colored image using a Sakura White Gelly pen. I die cut all of the images using the coordinating Hello Bluebird North Pole Littles dies. Then I added all of the images to the card creating a layered scene from Santa and Mrs. Claus at the bottom of the card to the elves and reindeer in the middle and lastly the North Pole at the top!
I hope you have enjoyed today's card! Thank you for visiting!
