PowerPoppy is in Full Bloom!!

http://powerpoppy.com/collections/all

 I can hardly believe it.  PowerPoppy stamp sets are available for sale!!  I just know you all are going to love these sets as much as I do.  Marcella has a special way of capturing even the minutest of details and adding that little extra to all her images and sets.  We have 4 sets for PowerPoppy's debut!!

But first, here's a card I made using Azaleas and Good Thoughts: Renewal


 I have a small collection of pencil sketches and charcoal art, which inspired me to do a monochromatic card using the gray scale.  I stamped the Azalea images with with Gray Flannel Memento Ink and colored them with Copics T0-T4.  I added white stamens (although I wish I had made them a darker gray) using a White Sharpie, and added a bit of sparkle with some Crystal Rock Candy glitter (Ranger).  The sentiment is from the Good Thoughts: Renewal set.  And see that little azalea on the left?  That's in the set too...sweet!!  The background was created with a Doily Stencil (Tim Holtz), and I added another doily and Punched Border (EK Success).  Lastly I added a handmade crocheted flower along with some twine and silver cording.

That's it for me.  If you haven't visited the rest of the DT's blogs, you'll want to do that right now.  These gals are just full of inspiring ideas.

Tosha Leyendekker --- you are here

I hope you've enjoyed my previews this week.  I had a fabulous time creating with the new PowerPoppy stamps and I hope you will too!

Happy Stamping!

Just when I think your cards can't get any more incredible, you do something like THIS! *thud!* I adore the softness you've created with the monochromatic gray tones. That punched border is to die for, too! This is about as perfect as a card can get, my amazing friend! WOW!

Wow, Tosh! I was on Pinterest and saw this card and didn't remember it. And now I know why. I never commented on it (nor pinned it...it's done now). But, wow (yes I said that already). But truly, this is totally gorgeous and amazing, and I love the soft gray monochromatic coloring and your amazing fussy cutting. It's absolutely stunning! And I love your crocheted flower! Stunning! Hugs!
