Power Poppy: Nature & Nurture Collection Blog Hop

Today’s the day!  The Nature & Nurture Collection from Power Poppy is finally here! This collection consists of three clear stamp sets…

Each of these new clear stamp sets is packed full of detailed, gorgeous images and verb-acious sentiments!  Each one of these stamp collections is now available in the Power Poppy Shop!

For my final card, I wanted so badly to go back and create with the gorgeous new wheat image so I took it and paired it up with the lovely Coneflower also included in this same stamp set.  Doesn’t it just stay “Fall” to you?!?
Derwent Pencils: 0200, 0240, 0300, 0400, 0600, 0700, 1310, 1320, 1400, 1530 

I played around with my Derwent Inktense Pencils and some watercolour paper for my card front.  I really wanted the texture of the paper play with my pencils so I only added a small amount of additional texture using an embossed piece of water colour paper to the edge.

Now come and check out what the rest of the Bloom Brigade has been up to using these glorious new stamp sets…
