Tree of Life ~ Power Poppy
It's day 3 of the Power Poppy previews, and people, this set is STUNNING!!!  It's called Tree of Life.  Marcy has designed an exquisite tree just chock full of delicious details.  And she didn't stop there!  She added the sweetest little extras too: like a darling little squirrel, leaves, another gorgeous bird, and fantastic sentiments.

The tree is so beautifully detailed that I thought it would be fun to "Minc" it in gold.  It would work beautifully for Christmas too.

No coloring was done for this card.  I just stamped the image onto copy paper, photo copied it, added my Minc foil and ran it through my Minc machine.  I then diecut it using Spellbinders' Venise Lace die and layered it on some Teresa Collins Fabrications paper.  Lastly, I added some sequins and a crinkled ribbon that I made using organdy ribbon that I heat carefully using my heat tool.  (If you get it too hot it melts.)  I make my bow, and then hold it with a tweezers and gently heat the bows, then the tails.

Finally, I stamped one of the gorgeous sentiments with Onyx Black Versafine.
Here are the links to the other Bloomies that have some inspiration to share:

Stacy Morgan
Tosha Leyendekker

That's it for me today.  Be sure to stop by tomorrow though.  I am so excited to share the next preview because it's my favorite so far.  Well...if one can really pick a Power Poppy favorite.  Mine change from day to day.

  Happy Stamping!!

Different from the rest. Love the outside the box thinking and leaving it uncoloured. Just as beautiful. Love it.
