It's Time for the Power Poppy Hop!

Hello all! And NOW... the moment we've all been waiting for! After looking at all the sneaky peeks from Power Poppy for the last five days, the RELEASE DAY has finally arrived! And, all you need to do is click HERE to see the Storm of Creativity Collection! This bevy of beautiful designs have sure inspired a ton of creativity within the Bloom Brigade! And so now, it's your turn! Grab these gorgeous images and let's see what you can create!

As with every Power Poppy Release Day, the Bloom Brigade loves to pick one of the sets from this week and share another creation as we all take part and have a full fledged Power Poppy Hop!

On to my creation!

I started my design with a little paper from the Carta Bella Yesterday 6 by 6" decorative paper pad and I decided not to color all of this big and beautiful orchid but to "spotlight" it instead! So, I stamped one of the orchids from Power Poppy's new set called Orchids Rock using Memento Rich Cocoa. From there, I stamped my image again using Memento Tuxedo Black onto white card stock. I grabbed my Copic Markers and went to town! I used G20, G21, G24, G28, R24, R00, R35, R39, Y35, Y21, E31, BG0000 and BG10. After coloring just that section, I punched out my flower using a 1/-1/4" circle punch and then matted it on a die cut shape from a retired Spellbinders Blossom die. I trimmed the main decorative paper piece, added a little paper piercing and corner rounding, added my sentiment (also from the set) and then added my main colored image thanks to a wee bit of foam tape. Throw in some burlap twine, a fun brad and... ta da! Done! 

Here's a close up! 


And that, my friends, is it! I won't keep you much longer! Make sure you stop by these fine ladies' places on the blogosphere to see what they crafted for our Power Poppy Hop! I know you won't be disappointed!
