Midsummer Stunner!

Hello folks! Have you been following the colorful, creative and dynamic things happening these past few days over at Power Poppy? If not, man, you’ve been missing out and you’ll have to head on over to the Power Poppy blog for week long peeks at the Midsummer Stunner release! Marcella’s illustrative pen has been busy at work crafting not one, not two, but SEVEN brand new stamp sets for you to enjoy! And, they will all be live tomorrow in the Power Poppy Shop!

And here, sweet stamping friends, is the latest spark of fun just for you!

That's right, there are two new sets for the viewing today -- Party Time and Tea in the Garden -- and the Bloom Brigade is ready to show them off in grand style!

On to my creation! When I saw the Tea in the Garden set, I couldn't resist this beautifully delish cake topped with strawberries! Why? Well, I have a killer recipe for a Strawberry Lemonade Cake and this one just reminded me of those summer days when we enjoy this tasty dessert. (I will have to dig it out and share it soon!) So, off I went, coloring up a replica!

After stamping the berry laden cake, I colored it up with all kinds of fun Copic shades -- R0000, RV00, RV02, R27, R81, R83 and R85. The leaves were YG21, YG23 annd YG25 and I added a little YG00 to the berries that just weren't quite ripe enough plus I added a little E81 for the vanilla frosting -- YUM! The cake plate was YG11 -- just a fun mint colored to imitate that antique milk glass.  Then, I also added some white paint pen accents to the berries as well. 

And here's what I did on the inside -- I added a little decorative paper strip, a sentiment from the set and then a stamped flower from the Countryside Bouquet Deluxe set. 

And that, my friends, is it! I love the super sweet images in this set and I know you'll love seeing the Bloomies take not only on this set but the other new release -- Party Time -- as well! So, hop, skip and jump your way through the link list and see what fun they have to offer!

I will say you will have to swing by tomorrow for the Power Poppy Hop! That's when all the gals will pick one of their favorites from the release to show off as the brand new stamps fill the Power Poppy Shop for all to grab up! It promises to be big fun!

See you back here then!

Oh my, Julie, this cake looks absolutely GORGEOUS! And I can only imagine how delicious your cake recipe is!! Yes, do share it! Well, this card is amazing, and I loved how you described your coloring to match your cake and even the antique milk glass cake plate. And it's beautiful inside and out, and I really love all the beautiful finishing touches...the piercing, the ribbon, and the sweet little button. Beautifully done, and I can hardly wait to color some of these! Big hugs, sweet friend!
