I've said it before -- Power Poppy is my weakness... and that's how I wound up with the entire new release. I know! I wasn't going to treat myself to any new stamps until I've caught up with all the not yet used stamps, and I haven't... since (ahem) the last Power Poppy release, but I've been making good progress. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.
So... I started in right away with the Under Glass set. It's a unique concept with five different images, a bell jar, and three sentiments. You can use the images with or without the bell jar and vice versa. I'll share the vice versa later. As of this writing I've made three cards with this set, just going with the inspiration.
The birthday sentiment is from an entirely different set -- Dynamic Duos: Peonies and Tulips. Initially I was going to leave this sentiment free for options on future use, but then I thought of a few September birthdays and realized I'd best be prepared.
The nature arrangement was stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa and the bell jar in Memento Toffee Crunch, then colored with Copic markers. After I put the whole card together with the image panel popped up I coated the bell jar with Glossy Accents. Since I needed to cover a sizable area with the Glossy Accents I squeezed a pool of it into a jar lid and used an inexpensive paint brush to paint it on the jar. If the glass looks wavy or has tiny bubbles we can imagine it's very, very old (or cheap) glass.
Love that pretty lattice die cut? It's another one Sherri sent in a very generous and fabulous package of die cuts. It's Joy Crafts Square 6002/0147. Everything will be summed up in the recipe below. I wish you all a very happy day!
