Let the Power Poppy Sneaks Begin!

Hi all and welcome to the start of a whole BUNCH of fun! Today marks day 1 of the sneaks for Power Poppy's "Share Your Sunshine" Release!   It's a collection that embraces sharing our talents, our garden bounty and our happy spirits with others! Are you ready for day 1?


Farmers Market is inspired by the bounty of the local market, the freshness of our earth's gifts, the saturated colors, the rustic baskets.... all of those fun things! There's something dear about the market that creates a coziness and sense of community and this set embodies it all! I should mention, this set will be available July 31st with the other four sets being released! What fun!

On to my creation!

I have to say, when Marcella talked about doing a "Farmer's Market" set, I never in a million years imagined myself coloring up a head of cauliflower. But yet, here I am! And I love it! I just love the sentiment.. "Heads up!" Too cute for words for those "I've got news" kinds of cards and creations! 

This card is pretty easy peasy! I stamped up my image using Memento Espresso Truffle and then grabbed these Copic markers and started to color!

I matted up my creation with some paper from Teresa Collins called Memorabilia. Added some Twinery twine, a wood button and some little decorative paper flags! I should mention that I stamped the words "Fresh Cauliflower" on black decorative paper using White Staz-On ink and then cut it out and matted it on my little stamped sign. I have to say that I tried a variety of inks and techniques i.e. chalk ink, chalk, Brilliance Ink, embossing powder.... and NONE worked as well as White Staz-On. So, there you have it! 

And... here's a peek at the inside! I love all the little sentiments that fit into the sign! Eat Your Veggies is just plain cute, don't you think!

And that, my friend, is it! I love the vibe this set carries and I know you'll LOVE to see what the rest of the Bloom Brigade whipped up using the new Farmer's Market set! So, stop by and say "hey" to these lovely ladies below!

Jules, you are so good, you even make cauliflower look COOL!! What a fabulous card. Love the quirky color scheme you've used, it's one I wouldn't have thought of, and now that I see it, I can't stop thinking about it! Love the ledger like you'd see at a market, the wooden accents to pick up on the basket. Girl, I'm crazy for this cauliflower card!
