Creative + Curious Big Sexy Leaves ~ Power Poppy





Hello my creative friends!!  I am so sorry for the long absence.  I was busy with a lot of "life" things, and I've been working on some projects for this new Power Poppy release Creative + Curious Collection.  There are literally 11 new Power Poppy sets being released, some sets even have coordinating dies too!  And peeps...as always, Marcella has pulled out all the stops.

I'm featuring the stamp Big Sexy Leaves.  This baby is a 6 x 6 Background stamp that is so versatile and complimentary to other sets that I have used it for 3 different projects for this release.  I can't wait to show you how I combined it with a gorgeous new floral set on the 20th.  And be sure to stop by on the 19th to see how I used a fun technique with Alcohol inks.  

Today, I stamped it onto Canson Pastel paper and watercolored it.  I'm not very comfortable with watercoloring, but I wanted to try a rustic background with these stunning leaves and showcase their diversity.  I layered the sentiment "hello" 6 times using the Power using the Loving Tulips Coordinating die.  I think the dimension adds a bit of fun.  The sentiment is a sneak peek from a set, called Always Here, that is going to be featured on the 18th.

Do you see the little heart on the sentiment flag?  That's the inside piece to a heart from the Loving Tulips Coordinating die set.  I just colored it with my Krylon gold leafing pen.  I thought it added a nice little "punch".

That sums up my project for today.  Now, if you haven't already, check out what the rest of the Bloom Brigade has to share with you today.  These gals will knock your socks off with their creativity, and I'm not even a little bit kidding!

Tosh, this is gorgeous, and your watercoloring is beautiful! I love the earthiness of your card with the great DP and your colors of the background! This is gorgeous, and I am eager to see how you'll use it with other sets. I really love the curved layout with the "hello" die and the black. And of course, the gilded edges are a really lovely touch -- along with the sweet gold heart! All the little touches that make a card extra special! Hugs, sweet friend! xoxo

What an awesome card! I feel like I'm walking through the woods and seeing these leaves on the plants along the path, you have done a wonderful job bringing them to life!

Love your earth-tones on this card, Tosh! That little tail peeking out from under the curved border is adorable. And the gold edging really finishes this card beautifully! Pure loveliness!
