Hi there! I am so glad to see you! Today is the day that all of the Bloom Brigade give you another look at this month's release.....the Power Poppy Hop! So pull up a chair and get comfy...
Can you believe all of the floral gorgeousness in this month's release? I mean, seriously.....four days of perfectly drawn, beautifully detailed, amazing Marcella botanicals.....does it get any better than that? Here's a little recap of the images from this release...
And Marcella made them available for a limited time as digital images so you didn't have to wait....you could own them the same day! Really, how awesome is that?! So today, I chose to use the Gerbera Daisy image again but I paired it with the sentiment from the Gladioli image set. Those daisies are just so fun to color!
I decided to keep this card layout really simple, clean, and bright.....you know....fresh as a daisy! :) I used a blue and yellow color palette but I just had to add a pop of pink with one of the daisies. My image was printed on the computer, colored with copics and then die cut with a Spellbinders die. Then I printed the sentiment, die cut it with another Spellbinders die, sponged on some Ranger Distress ink in Antique Linen, layered it with a little blue card stock and added a couple of eyelets. I used a blue card stock base panel, added my blue printed paper and stitched the borders on the sewing machine. Then, I added the yellow gingham paper and added a little more stitching. Next, I added my panel of Gerbera Daisies with some foam dimensionals and finally my sentiment using a little bit of yellow ribbon. I adhered the entire assembled panel to a white card stock card base and for the final touch, added a sweet little button. The finished card size is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".
You can't really see it in the photos but I went back and added a little sparkle in the centers of the daisies with my Atyou Spica clear glitter pen....so just pretend, k? They are shimmery, I promise! ;) So are you feeling the "fresh as a daisy" vibe? And just like the sentiment...I am wishing you a wonderful day too! I hope you have gotten some inspiration here, but you simply must check out what the rest of the Bloom Brigade has in store for you! There'll be more blooms on display at this hop than at the Rose Bowl Parade! :) So go enjoy and then, if you haven't already, go grab your own images in the Power Poppy Store.....remember, these are only around for a limited time so grab 'em while you can! I am so glad you stopped by today and I'll be back soon with another Power Poppy image to share. Until then, take care!
