Come to the Cabbage Patch

Hello everyone!  I have an encouraging design to show you today with a new set from Power Poppy that Marcy just released in the Digital Blitz, it’s called Cabbage Patch  and the set showcases a beautiful open frame of ornamental Cabbages, as well as single cabbages you can combine however you like.  It has lovely sentiments in the set, but this time I paired it with Power Poppy’s polymer M-Powering Words,  because I knew I wanted to emboss the sentiment.  

I layered up some beautiful colours that these autumn beauties come in using Copic Markers. It was fun to work on the detailed veining in the cabbages.  

This shot helps you see the shine of the embossing powder, as well as a closer look at the colouring and the shadowing I added around the letters.  Some simple sparkle comes from the iridescent holeless sequins.  They take on the different shades in the colouring which works beautifully.  

Here are the Copics I used below...

Don’t forget that the Digital Blitz has 10 NEW and gorgeous images and that we’ve also got a special coupon going on for a few more days!

A Pumpkin Harvest Howdy

Good morning!  Today I have a cute little autumn themed design to show you from Power Poppy using a digital set called Painting Pumpkins.  For this design I used the pumpkins that are decorated with some pretty patterns.  After printing it on Copic XPress It Blending cardstock, I coloured up the scene with Copics, and then added white gel pen or gold pen on the patterns in the pumpkins to give them the look of white or gold paint.  It makes such a pretty scene with the extras of the paint and pitcher, brushes, acorns and leaves. 

I wanted to use a sentiment that was long and narrow so I pulled out this one from Power Poppy’s polymer stamp set, Fortunes of Fall.  With a bit of wood veneer and some die cut leaves to accent it feels warm and cozy.  

For more inspiration today please stop by and see two of the best ladies!

TCP New Release Hop!

Today we’re celebrating The Cat’s Pajamas September New Release of 7 stamps, 5 dies, and 4 stencils with a Blog Hop!  You should have come from Deborah’s blog along the way, but if you get lost stop by the TCP Blog for the list.  

Today I’ve got a pretty little autumn-themed design using the new set May the Forest Be With You and our new Birch Forest Stencil.  I just loved the cozy little scene in this stamp set and the sweet little critters.  The stamp is coloured up with Copics and then fussy cut out to be able to place it on this little fall scene I’ve put together.  

On the Square Stamp Die section, I’ve sponged a few rolling hills using TCP’s fabulous Great Outdoors Stencil. and TCP’s Big Beautiful Blending Brush in green and gold Distress Ink.  It makes a great backdrop for the tree.  

Then, so it really felt like autumn, I added some stencilled leaves blowing across the Kraft cardstock from the new Birch Forest Stencil.  I love the feel it gave the design!  I’ve accented the sentiment with a die cut leaf from TCP’s Rectangular Stamp Die to finish it off.  

Here’s a peek at what I’m showcasing today from the New Release.  

And now you can head on over to see Melissa for more inspiration!

Grab the Unicorn

Today we’re showcasing the CUTEST new set from The Cat’s Pajamas called Grab the Unicorn!  It includes an adorable variety of little unicorns and some fun sentiments!  Because I wanted to do some ink blending, I coloured up the little unicorn with Copics and matched my ink blending for the background to the colours in the umbrella and mane and fussy cut him out. 

Next I did some ink blending of the pennant and the background using Distress Oxide Inks and our Big Beautiful Blending Brush.  Finishing it off with some splashing of water and some white opaque paint.  To mimic the rainbow feel of the card, I accented the pennant with TCP’s Rolling Hills Border Die.  It’s a nice addition because you can see the background ink through the cut outs in the die.  

Just a few holographic holeless sequins add some more iridescent sparkle!  

Here’s a peek at the cutie-patootie set!
