Introducing... Springtime Love!

Our first Power Poppy set, hot off the presses, may have you hearing the alluring tones of a French accordion and whispering Ooh La La. Springtime Love is in the air and this set embodies romance -- with passionate petals and love-laced sentiments. Illustrated by Marcella Hawley as she went in for the kiss, this beauty of a set measures 4" by 6". 

I'm so happy you could join us on this momentous day everyone!  Today I get to share with you my very first creation using the stunning new stamps from the Springtime love collection for Power Poppy!

I began my card using a simple oval die cut from a very subtle patterned paper form the BasicGrey collection "Spice Market".  You don't always have to stamp onto cardstock you know!  LOL!  Then I stamped my mini bouquet using some Memento ink and coloured it in using Copic Markers.  I layered lots of different ovals around my stamped image to build depth.

Here is a close of my focal image... Would you look at the amazing detail Marcella always puts into her images???  It makes me giddy with all the colouring possibilities of her images... hehehe!

Now that you've been swept away with that free-feeling Springtime Love, why not traipse around to take in some more? The Bloom Brigade has plenty to share!
