Creative and Curious Collection Day 3!

Howdy Ho Happy Stampers! Welcome to day three of one of the most marvelous clear stamp releases in Power Poppy's history! It's surely the largest! With 11 sets being released, you KNOW there is something for everyone in the mix. And, guess what? Did you know you could WIN this release? Yes, you heard me right. You could WIN IT my friends! Check it out!

What fun! Speaking of fun... it's time to unveil the next two sneaky peeks in this collection!

The epitome of Spring, captured in a heart -- that's what you'll find in Power Poppy's newest clear set Always Here.  You might recognize this one since it has been available in digital form as Heart Abloom. Now, all those clear stamp lovers have access to this heart-shaped bouquet that comes alive with a variety of Hellebores, Daffodils, Trout Lilies, and — wait, what? — Blueberries! Such a bounty of color you will be able to create with this set! Stylishly designed sentiments help express that you are always here for your friend or loved one.

Bee Kind Toile: A do-it-yourself toile kit, composed of vintage-inspired botanical snippets that, when stamped in a pattern or frame, highlight flowers' best friends: BEES! Showcase the bee skep, beehive cake, or a sentiment inside an undulating floral pattern. Create a repeat background the watercolored honeycomb design. Stamp tiny phrases inside the small vintage banner for a subtle but chic message. Bee Kind Toile can be combined with any of our other stamp sets to create backgrounds and frames that command a second look.

Moving on to my creation!

While this set is all about the toile, I decided to take pieces of this amazingly beautiful set and make it more about the bees! :-) There is a tiny honeycomb in this set that can be used to create a repeating background and I was dying to give that a try. I used Memento Cantaloupe ink and just went to town repeating this for my image backdrop. The little honey bundt cake was perfect for a birthday wish, so I stamped that, coloring it up with Copic Markers. I stamped the banner, added the little birthday wishes sentiment and cut it out, attaching it below my hive cake.

And here's a peek at the inside, a little more honeycomb, a fun sentiment for the birthday girl and... a bee! I love this set and know that the options are truly endless when you think of all the stamp combinations you can create with this set. 

And that, dear friends, is it! While that's all I have to share, this is definitely not the end of the inspiration and fun! 

Check out these ladies.... will you? It's time for a Bloom Brigade Parade standing at attention ready to show off more from this Creative and Curious Collection! 

Now we know that this release has likely caused some jaws to drop and some involuntary swoons but, I kid you not, this release is far from over, we have five, yes five more sets to feature that are packed with empowering words, sweet sentiments, cute-as-a-button images, beautiful botanicals and... more! So, be sure to swing back by tomorrow to see what AWESOMENESS is on tap!

Until then,
