Creative + Curious Release Hop ~ Power Poppy



It's RELEASE DAY over at Power Poppy!!!!!  Oh...my...goodness!!  I can't believe it is finally here.  People...you seriously need to head on over to Power Poppy and Start....SHOPPING!!  I had THE MOST FUN playing with these stamp sets.  They are each unique and full of incredible possibilities!!  I have two cards to share with you today, using 4 different stamp sets. 

http://powerpoppy.com/products/abundant-petals
For my first card, I combined Big, Sexy Leaves with Abundant Petals.  Don't they look fabulous together?  Seriously now!!!  I started by stamping the Big Sexy Leaves background image onto copy paper.  Why?  Well, I wanted to minc the leaves onto decorative paper, and my copier has toner.  So I just stamped it onto copy paper, and copied it onto my decorative paper.  Then I minc'ed it with Champagne Foil.  The shimmer is just stunning!  I have a short video of it on Instagram...look for "tosh.l" if you'd like to see it.

I then colored up this stunning Peony.  Marcy and her flowers...let me tell ya.  They are nothing short of F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S!!!  I fussy cut each bloom and leaf cluster and added it to my card.



Now, my second card is on the opposite end of the spectrum.  I wanted to show that Toile (although is usually made up of repeating patterns) does not have to be perfect.  If you look closely at the background I created below, you will be able to tell the randomness of it.  And because the blooms are so beautifully and intricately designed, the "lack-of-perfection", is not noticeable without looking up close.  I used a variety of images from the Bee Kind Toile set, and combined it with one of the new M-Powering Words sentiments stamped over a honeycomb background.


That's it for my projects these last 5 days.  I hope you've enjoyed the previews.  Be sure to stop by Power Poppy and check out the entire Creative + Curious Collection.  These sets are show stoppers!!
