Power Poppy May Stamp Release~Day 5!

Hello there and welcome to Day 5 of Power Poppy's May stamp release!  Today is the day that you will be able to see (and order!) all of the new stamp sets!  Hey, did you know that some of the sets also have coordinating dies?  Yay!  So, before you jet over to the Power Poppy store, let me show you the two sets being introduced today and my card, k?

For my card today, I chose to use an image and sentiment from the Precious Baby set.  YES...Power Poppy's  first baby set....can you believe it?!  :)  All of the images in this set are beyond adorable and I know I will be using this set often for baby cards, but I just had to start with the little baby pea pod!  Once I colored my image with Copics, I die cut it and started layering with a bunch of die cut layers from card stock and patterned paper.   I fussy cut and colored an extra pair of leaves to add for a little more greenery.  The baby is fussy cut and layered for some added dimension.  I added my die cut sentiment and some shimmer with a Wink of Stella clear brush pen to finish the card.  My idea was to make a pea pod and have my image be one of the peas....kind of a pea pod within a pea pod. :)  

I cannot get over the darling wee face on this sweet little pea!  Marcella really out did herself with this set....well, she really out did herself with ALL of her new sets, but mercy....I am totally smitten with this image!  :)

So that is all for my card today, but my Bloomie sisters have been knocking it out of the park all week and today is no exception, so make sure you check out all of their lovely cards and leave a little blog love while you are there.  Oh, and hey...I saved this last little bit of news until the end...Marcella is offering a discount on these new sets!
