Introducing… Lilac Time!

It's Day 1 of our new clear stamp reveal for Power Poppy and this month is going to be fun!  We have a full garden awaiting you and your stamping projects.  You’ll want to ensure that you add each of the new 3 stamp sets to your collection of blooming beauties right away.

Without further adieu… introducing Lilac Time!!

This stamp set features some of the most incredibly detailed stamps that Marcella has ever created!  The amount of minute lines and details lends this entire stamp set to almost shading it’s self! This stamp set is so detailed you can almost smell the lilacs… it’s true!!!

Today I’m sharing a card featuring the single sprig of elaborate lilac blooms…

I coloured it with a series of different shades of purples: some on the pink side and some on the blue side.  I love the effect of the multi-coloured mini flowers in contains!  I also used the mini cluster of blooms to create my own patterned paper.

If you look closely, I even have a little bit of shimmer going on!

Now it’s time to peruse the creative gardens of the remaining Bloom Brigade.  Have fun checking out what they have all created for you today!

Ally, it's a beautiful lilac and I love that you have it facing right side up! So many people think lilacs hang down and they don't! They are strong flowers and stand up straight, defying gravity! Gorgeous coloring! Thank you.

Leslie Miller said...

Allison, I'm so glad to see you used this gorgeous single bloom stem and the little florets and colored it up so prettily in the lilac and pink tones. It's beautifully designed the way you positioned the bloom and sentiment on the die cut, too.

Amazing, the colors are so vibrant and fresh, this blooms look so real you might be tempted to smell them. I love the way you framed this lovely image, the Spellbinders die cut is just perfect but, you paper snipping skills are even more amazing, thank you for sharing.
