Tulips

Hello! I'm not really sure when I last posted here on my blog. I know it's been forever! I've been busy, busy, busy with my family and work. Although I've been doing plenty of papercrafty stuff these past few months, I just haven't had the energy to do all those things that go with blogging about my projects. I spent some time yesterday thinking about and digging up inspiration for a few special projects I had on my to-do list for this week, and in doing so, I cruised by the Power Poppy website and blog. I recently treated myself to a few Power Poppy stamp sets and was eager to get them inky! I noticed a post about the latest Power Poppy Power & Spark challenge, which is to "cut it out" (fussy cutting your main image), and I realized that playing in a challenge (which I haven't done in AGES!) was probably just the nudge I needed to finally post something new here on My Little Slice of Bliss. So, here I am with an entry for Power & Spark!



I used the gorgeous tulip image, as well as a sentiment, from Power Poppy's Dynamic Duos: Peonies and Tulips set and colored with my Copics. The notebook paper die and coordinating notebook paper lines stamp are from My Favorite Things. And that pretty patterned paper? From an ancient Jillibean Soup 6x6 pad. I'm working hard to use up my stash!

I had fun getting creative today. Thanks for taking a peek!

Pretty! Oh, I love these tulips. They're one of my favorite Power Poppy stamps. Such a cute notebook paper stamp and die, too. Perfect DP for your tulips. I'm forever working at using up my stash. That's a particularly cute piece. Emily, I'm so glad you joined our challenge at Power Poppy with this wonderful card!

I'm so happy to see you back again. I have checked in many times and hoped you were just busy. Blogging takes a lot of time and sometimes I don't get around like I want too. This is a pretty card and the background paper is so pretty too.

Your card is so pretty! I love the note paper stamp and die your used. A lovely background for the pretty poppy and twine bow.
It makes a lovely Thinking of You card but would also be a nice Teacher Thank You for this time of year or a graduation card even.
Great design, as always! It's so good to see your work again.
