Pop-Up Posies Meets Epic Day — FMS81

It’s already another Wednesday, and that means it’s time for another challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.  This week the fabulous Cindy Hall has this sketch for us:

Since I am currently addicted to the This and That Epic Day dsp, I immediately reached for it (it’s never far away :)).  I hadn’t used any of the Pop-Up Posies products in a while and they go so well with the Epic Day papers, so I pulled that out too.  And here’s what I made:

Happy Colors Posie Card

I hope you’re not tired of seeing projects made with the Pop-Up Posies Designer Kit.  I have one last project (well, at least for this week anyways) to show you today — a card.

muffin cup flower cardI hope you’re not tired of this color combination, too.  I’ve been using it a lot lately.  It just seems so happy and spring-y to me.

I used the little muffin-wrappers flowers on this card, and cut them with my paper snips so they would lay flat.

Spring Break has arrived here!  I am so looking forward to having the kids at home next week.  We’ll have to go out for some daily excursions.  Good times!

Enjoy your Saturday!  Thanks for stopping by!

An Easter Treat

Posies and Jelly Beans

While I was playing with the Pop-Up Posies Designer Kit, I made this little Easter treat.  I folded the embossed tag in half and added some strips of dsp.  I filled the small cello bag with some Easter “grass” and jelly bean eggs.  Easy peasy!

Have a great Friday!  Thanks for stopping by!

Posies and Butterflies on a Bag

butterfly bagI’ve been playing with the Pop-Up Posies Designer Kit lately and decided to use one of the embossed tags in the kit on a gift bag.  I bought the sack at a big box store (it came with several of them packaged together), adhered some pennant flags and added some butterflies and ribbon.  Super easy!

I’m having some computer woes today.  I was going to place my laptop gently on the floor last night, when it kinda slipped from my hand and hit the carpeted floor a little hard (that sounds like how one of my kids might explain it :)).  Now the monitor has lines running down the right side and across the bottom so that you can’t see those parts of the images on the screen.  The rest of the laptop seems to be running fine, but it severely limits how I can use my laptop.  I guess I’ll have to take it into the shop today.  Boo!  I’m typing this post on the Mac, and everything is taking me several times longer than normal because I’m not familiar with this thing.

Have a great Thursday!  Thanks for stopping by!

The Other Pop-Up Posies Flower

ridged posie

Here’s a card for you using that “other” posie in the Pop-Up Posies Designer Kit.  You know the one — the one that looks like white mini-muffin paper wrappers.  Well, at least that’s what I thought it looked like when I opened my kit.  I had a hard time envisioning a cute flower with the supplies.  I referred to it as the “other” flower, which couldn’t be as cute as the Pool Party or Calypso Coral flower.  But guess what — it’s really cute when you follow the directions (they’re included with the kit)!  I will have to give it a new name.  It will no longer be the “other” flower, but will now be called the “really cute white flower.”

I also discovered that I really like Calypso Coral and Basic Gray together.  What do you think about this color combo?

Ok.  I know some of you are really here to find out if you won the blog candy.  I used a random number generator at random.org to pick the winner.  I wanted to show a copy of it, but I couldn’t figure out how to cut and paste it into this post, so you’ll have to trust me on this one.  The winner is:

Pop-Up Posies CAS card–PP129

It’s Sunday, and that means it’s time for another challenge at the Paper Players.  Our challenge this week is a sketch challenge from Jaydee, and it’s one for all of us CAS (clean and simple) fans:

I am really loving the new Pop-Up Posies Designer Kits in the new Spring catalog.  All of the work is done for you — no punching or die-cutting out of flowers, and it comes with these adorable Crumb Cake labels that are already embossed for you.  Plus it comes with some beautiful fabric covered brads.  It also comes with its own stamp set, but I didn’t use that on this card.

Pop-Up Posie -- PP128

The color combination in this kit is Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Summer Starfruit and Crumb Cake, and I have to say I am loving it!  It is so spring-like and cheery!

Here’s a closer look at the flower and brad:
