Power Poppy Sneaks Day 1: Orchids Rock!

Hello all and welcome to an exciting week here on the 'ole blog! Today is just day one of five in all where I get to join my fellow members of the Bloom Brigade to show off the latest offerings from Power Poppy! 

This first set is nothing short of elegant! Feast your eyes on this....



Imagine a beautiful Cymbibium and a breathtaking Lady Slipper Orchid just ripe for coloring! That's what Marcella has masterfully crafted with this set called Orchids Rock! Did you know orchids symbolize beauty and strength? It's also why you'll find an array of sentiments designed to share just that kind of vibe. 

On to my creation!


I started by coloring up this beauty with Copic Markers on Cougar Opaque White paper. I used R81, R83, R95, RV00, G24, G21, G20, YG00, YG03, BG0000, E33, and E31. After I was done coloring, I cut out my image (cutting out the branches at the top and making sure that they sat above the die so they wouldn't be cut). While the die was still on, I sponged on some Ranger Distress Ink in Spun Sugar. The embossed white base is an embossing folder from Stampin' Up and the teal decorative paper is Carta Bella Yesterday. Add a little Hug Snug ribbon (Pink Aster) and a bit of bling and.. ta da! Done!  I will say that the sentiment is one that is a part of a set that will be released later this week -- so stay tuned! 

Here's a close up of those fantastically illustrated orchids! Marcella has once again outdone herself if you ask me! 


And that, my friends, is it! I've seen some of the beautiful things that the Bloom Brigade created with this set and I mean to tell you, my jaw dropped! See for yourself! Hop on my and see these fine designers!

Be sure to stop back tomorrow! The set we'll be sneaky peeking is one that's full of inspiration for love notes gallore! I know I don't use the word "darling" a lot but man, this set is just that! See you then!
