Power Poppy Day 4: Just a little bit Country!

Hi all! Gosh, can you feel the excitement building here? In just a matter of days, all the fabulous stamp sets that the Bloom Brigade has been showing off will be LIVE in the Power Poppy Shop and ready for the buying! Yipppeeeee! But before that day comes, we have more from the Share Your Sunshine Collection to... well... share! Today's set is another one that you might recognize! 


This beautiful bouquet is back in polymer and this set comes with deluxe images that you won't be able to resist! A single sprig of sage maybe? Or a stem of Cosmos? Yep, this set  called Countryside Bouquet Deluxe has both! Plus five small yet meaningful sentiments!

On to my creation! When I saw this little stem of Cosmos, my heart just fluttered. I love the simplicity of it and yet it has a sweetness to it as well! It looks like something that might be sitting in an old antique vase on grandma's dining room table -- just fresh picked from the garden!

I stamped this little image on white card stock with Memento Espresso Truffle ink and colored it up with Y32, Y35, Y00, G20, G24 and BG0000 Copic Markers. I cut the image out using a fancy paper pierced die to give it a little pizazz (this one is from Flourishes). While the die was still on, I did sponge on some Spun Sugar Distress Ink. Add a decorative paper flair with Spellbinders Labels Seventeen, a strip of pink paper, some lace trim and a wee bit of silver cording to accent my tag featuring one of the sentiments from this set! Add a doily and an embossed background (Stampin' Up) and.... voila!

Here's a close up!

And that, my friends, is it! I know after seeing some of the fun things the Bloom Brigade whipped up using this set, you'll agree this is a beautiful addition to the Power Poppy Collection! So.... stop by and see these fine ladies and I'll let you decide for yourself!

I think this is going to be a great one set to have in my collection of powerpoppy stamps. Like that there will be some of the separate flowers as well. Thanks for showing us a peek at that.

So fresh and pretty. I like the little hint of sparkle in the middle of the flowers. The paper doily is a great touch.

Oooh, this is pretty, Julie! I just about missed it. How could that happen? Heaven forbid! Love your pretty colors and paper. Feminine and sweet. And, of course, your coloring of this darling little cosmos is top notch!
