Power Poppy Enchanted Garden Preview, Day 1



Hello, friends!  I hope you enjoy the next few days here on the blog as much as I enjoyed preparing for them.  The Instant Gardeners have teamed up with the Bloom Brigade to bring you previews of a brand new clear stamp release at Power Poppy.  Five fabulous sets and I'm sure it goes without saying that I love them all.

We're starting off with Big Sexy Blooms.  This is a large background stamp with all kinds of possibilities.  The link will be live on July 1 when all the sets are available in the store.  My card:




White embossed and watercolored in pastel shades, I couldn't resist coloring the whole thing.  I split it into panels for this 5" card.   The sentiment is from a set we'll be previewing on Day 5.  Note to self:  Do more white embossing.  It's perfect for pastels.  This was such easy coloring!  I used SU's Watercolor Wonder Crayons.




Waste not, want not... I used the leftover strip inside where I'll write my own message.




We're off to a great start!  I'll send you over to the Power Poppy Blog where Marcella will tell you all the details and give you a link list to more beautiful samples.  Wishing you a lovely day!

What an absolutely beautiful spin on this stamp set! While others have created in a big and bold way, yours looks as soft and pretty as can be! Love what you did here and, of course, you paired your colors perfectly with your paper and accents!

Oh my Leslie, this is a beautiful card. The soft colours makes this so dreamy, love it. Great idea to cut the pannel into 3, love the look! And your flag banners is a nice addition to add detail along with the sentiment!It's all the little things I love about your cards. I think I'm in love with the soft colours rather than the bold bright colours, but that's just me! Looking forward to seeing the rest of the release. Your off to a great start by inspiring us today. Hope your having a fabulous day!
