A Dynamic Duo!

HI all! Well, the big day is almost here! Today is the last peek at the brand new Swing into Summer release for Power Poppy and then tomorrow -- we'll have one heck of a hop with all the Bloom Brigade showing off just one more creation with the new sets as these beauties go on sale!

But first.... a look at a stamp set that might already have caught your eye!

This Dynamic Duo of Peonies and Tulips was released last month as an exclusive digi download. Well, Marcella heard from so many of you saying -- "Please! Bring this out on polymer!! Please!" Well, she is a woman who listens and now -- those gorgeous blossoms can be purchased as a digital stamp or as a brand new 4 by 6" set with both flowers and 8 brand new beautifully scripted sentiments! What fun! 

On to my creation!

I have to say, when I started to create -- I was feeling a simple card coming on. I didn't want a lot of stuff on my creation and actually struggled with the layout. I kept trying to add things, only to take them away later. So, this card is a little -- like I said -- simple -- but I think it works. ;-)

I stamped using Espresso Truffle Memento Ink. I have been using that a ton lately instead of black. It's like a deep, deep brown and not as harsh as black. Anyway, after I stamped, I colored up my tulips with Copic Markers using R21, YR01, YR0000, Y32, Y21, G20, YG61, YG63, BG0000, and BG10. Here's a close up below.... 


After I colored, I did use the Spellbinders Majestic Labels Twenty Five for my main image. And, while the die was still on, I sponged on some Peach Bellini Ranger Ink for a soft glow. I added some May Arts Ribbon, a bit of Queen and Co. bling and then matted it all up with some fun peach decorative paper (unknown) and then again on some mint green Prima paper. I love that this set offers some brand new sentiments. Isn't this one below super cute? I punched the sentiment out with a scalloped SU punch and matted it on a 1" punched circle. See?


And that, my friends, is it! not much more to this card! I have seen a bit of behind the scenes action with the Bloom Brigade and I mean to tell you -- you are going to want to hop on over and see their creations as well! And... head on over to the Power Poppy blog too for some fun-filled words from the artist herself -- Marcella Hawley!
