Let's Dance!


Hello all and happy Friday! Today not only brings the verge of the weekend BUT..... it's the first official day of SPRING! And, in honor of this lovely transition into flowers and showers, we bring you a special Power Poppy treat!

Just in case you missed it, last Sunday the Instant Gardeners popped the top on a brand new digital stamp set that is just, dare I say, luscious! What's better than buttery, twirly, swirly daffodils? So, check this out, will you?


Petals unfurl and foliage twists and twirls in this new digital stamp set called Dancing With Daffodils illustrated with love by Marcella Hawley. Daffodils and periwinkle vines almost appear to dance as they celebrate the arrival of Spring. A swirled up snail appears ready for a good time, too! Use the “Just Because” sentiment to have a springy card on hand, or use with a more seasonal sentiment to set the perfect tone.

Today, the Bloom Brigade is showing off this beauty so.... on to my creation!


I printed off my image on Cougar Opaque White card stock and then colored it up with Copic markers. I hate to say this but I used so many that I honestly couldn't share all. It was one of those moments that I grabbed a marker and decided on a little bit of this and a little bit of that. I added a little Hug Snug seam binding in yellow, a Stampin' Up gold button with some May Arts gold cording and.... a fun Spellbinders A2 Fancy Ribbon Threader Die. This die is perfect for those big images that are too large for an intricate layout but need a little somethin' somethin'! ;-)

I matted it all up on some Echo Park Fine and Dandy paper and... ta da! Done! I just love this image and think it truly is a wonderful way to honor this most wonderful time of year! 

Guess what? The rest of the Bloomies have gotten in on the "Dancing with Daffodils" act and have some beautiful creations to share!
