Power Poppy: Day 2 Enchanted Garden Release!

Hello folks, and welcome to DAY TWO of Power Poppy's Enchanted Garden release! This little sneaky peek of five new sets this week is sure to have you "ooooo"ing and "ahhhhhh"ing. There is so much to this release, Marcella's pen definitely drew something for everyone!

Today's set delivers that feeling of walking through a woodland area, just waiting to find natural treasures!

Power Poppy's new set Woodland Carpet features flora, fauna and ... fungi! Treasures of the forest floor are celebrated in this unique new 4" by 8" clear stamp set. Five images and five sentiments provide you with so many opportunities for both masculine AND feminine cards. The vignettes are just large enough to be a beautiful focal image. Each image reminds us to look down on your next outing, you just might miss a miraculous, mossy mound bursting with life!

On to my creation!

While I love the vignettes in this set, there was something about that Luna Moth that had me wanting to create a card with it as the focal point! After thinking about it for a bit, I realized I wanted to have that little guy lifted from the page. So, I drew a circle and started to stamp one of the leafy images in the set around the circle to form a kind of wreath. I stamped the sentiment in the middle and then stamped the moth where I wanted him to "land" on my card. I did this so that I wouldn't have to fussy cut those antennae!

From there, I colored my scene up with Copic Markers and while I doubt you can see it, I added a little Wink of Stella to the wings to help them shimmer.

Here's a closeup for you!

I matted it all up, added a button and some twine and created layers using circle dies to bring a little extra color and a "frame" to my scene.

Here's a peek at the inside where I added a sentiment, a colored version of that fabulous Luna Moth and then I drew in some little dots to let my moth take flight! :-) 

Want to see how some of the Bloomies and Instant Gardeners chose to delve into a little woodland wonder with this set? You will have to stop by these fine ladies below and see their creations. My jaw dropped more than a few times looking at them!


Coming up tomorrow for day three of the Enchanted Garden release, Marcella releases an image that can make more than cards. It can make a gorgeous statement! Can you say another exuberant floral? You'll just have to swing back to see for yourself tomorrow!

Until then!

This is SO sweet! I love the wreath feel to the greenery, and the pop of the luna moth...and his cute trail inside! So whimsical!

Janet Ingraham said...

I immediately recognized the Luna moth - a favorite of mine forever. Your idea to highlight it is wonderful!

Kathy Jones said...

So gorgeous Julie and love how you did the inside!! Love how you used the smaller images and made them the star of the show! :)

Fabulous card Julie. I love that you made that beautiful Moth a focal point. Thank you so much for sharing your inspiration.

Now I thought this was a butterfly not a moth, but I made that mistake on IG with a moth that looked like and Owl and sent it to Marcy. Anyways... Moth or butterfly this is so pretty. Delicately colored to look almost translucent... Very pretty all around.
