Power Poppy June Release!!





It's finally here!!  Power Poppy Release Day has arrived!!  You can now purchase these new sets:  Lavender, Play Ball, Sassy Succulents and Dynamic Duo: Peonies and Tulips


Here to tempt you once again, is a card I made using one of the Lavender images!!  I LOVE the rustic can and the wildflower feel to this image, so I wanted to make the card really rustic.  I stamped the image, onto Kraft card stock, with Tuxedo Memento Black ink, and colored it with Polychromos pencils.  I then distressed the edges with some Gesso.  I die cut it with the Large Deckled Rectangle die (Spellbinders), and mounted it against a brick backdrop which I created by brayering white pigment ink onto Spellbinders' Brick M-Bossibilities folder and ran it through my Grand Calibur.  Lastly, I added some felt flags, a die cut "Happy Birthday" sentiment (Spellbinders), a doily and button.



That's all folks!!  But there's more inspiration to be viewed.  Here are the links to the fabulously talented Bloom Brigade:


I hope you've enjoyed the previews this week.  Thank you so much for your warm and encouraging comments.

         Happy Stamping!

Mercy Tosh..what a shabby,chic, vintage beauty....but then, that is the stuff that just oozes from those creative pores of yours....that and glitter, am I right? ;) Nobody, and I mean nobody, does this style better than you, girlfriend...those lavender couldn't be any happier than in the setting you created for them. So very pretty!
