Power Poppy's Natural Wonders Stamp Release~Day 1!
Hello there and welcome to Day 1 of Power Poppy's newest stamp release! Marcella has been working overtime drawing up some of the most beautiful images ever....just you wait and see for yourself!
Today's debut is the latest super sized bloom to join the XL Collection. I know you remember those glorious, gigantic blooms of Dahlia XL, Poppy XL, and Tiger Lily XL.....well just get a load of Chrysanthemum XL!
Isn't she beautiful? That is one seriously amazing mum! For my card I chose to orient my image to one corner.
Once I stamped her up, I die cut the panel then colored her up with Copics. Next, I stitched some patterned paper to the opposite corner and stamped my sentiment from the same set. I added a little shimmer with a Wink of Stella clear brush pen and spritzed a couple of inks and sponged some distress ink around the edges. To give a little more contrast for the petals, I used a white Prismacolor pencil. Lastly, I added another patterned paper to my card base and attached the image panel. This card measures 3 7/8" x 5 3/8" .
Oh, how I love this bloom! And I can certainly say that she is a blast to color up! Now I am ready to go mum shopping for our front door planters. :)
Well, this is all for my card today but my Bloomie sisters have really created some of the most beautiful cards for your inspiration and that Marcella is sure to have an amazing post over at Bloom Central to tell you all about her inspiration behind this lovely stamp set. Make sure you leave a little blog love at your stops along the way. I am so happy you could stop by today, and I hope you'll pop in tomorrow for Day 2 Power Poppy's Natural Wonders stamp release...I think you will be "hoppy" to see a familiar image making her debut in polymer. :) Until then, take care!
