Power Poppy Day 4 Enchanted Garden Sneaky Peeks!

Hello all! It's day 4 of the fabulous week of sneaky peeks featuring Power Poppy's new Enchanted Garden release!  Today the Bloom Brigade and Instant Gardeners are serving up a fresh dose of summer with delish and delightful images that I'm sure you'll adore!

This summer-centric set -- Summer Berries -- offers stampers a tumbling vine of ripe raspberries providing the juiciest of focal points! A sweet bird among strawberry stems creates a gentle and whimsical image that you can color up in minutes. Add in a strawberry cluster that can be a focal point or fun accent to create a repeat border or even add a bit of pizzazz to an envelope and you've got a set that is sure to please all year round! 

On to my creation! 

I have to say, of this release, this card was the quickest of the bunch. Marcella was right when she said you can color up that little birdie vignette in minutes! I even took time to "Google" birds and knew I wanted one with a little pop of yellow on him. So, off I went and I found this guy below. Isn't he so cute!????

After I stamped him and colored him up with Copics (I used the range of W markers W1, W3, W5 and W7 and then paired with Y11, Y13 and Y15), I added some accents with a white gel pen and then got to coloring up the strawberries. I added the raspberries from the set as a background on the red strip using Brick colored Vivid Ink. Add a little yellow ribbon, a doily and a little red gem and... Voila! Done!

Here's a closeup for you!

This one is just about as simple as you can get and I think it's just as sweet! Speaking of sweet, I know some of the Bloomies and Instant Gardeners whipped up creations using this summer loving set! So, pop on over and say "hi" to.....

Tomorrow the fun continues with our last set to sneak. This one offers not only a bevy of blossoms but a fun little creature flitting about the scene. You'll love it. Trust me! Thanks so much for stopping by. Hopefully, I will see you all back here tomorrow! 

So, until then!

Oh! We have those birds here. They hop around the trees and plants looking for bugs. They don't visit the feeders. It looks like a Kinglet. Aren't they cute! You colored yours beautifully and made such a colorful and cheerful card!

Such a fun and happy card, Julie! Love the pop of red with the berry images stamped onto it, and then the yellow bird for extra color! Perfect summer card!

Very beautiful Julie, the lovely bird, great colour. Yellow is by far a summer colour so it fits so whel with the red and white you used. Great idea to stamp tone on tone on your red strip, I love it.
Thank you so much for sharing.

I love that your bird is a goldfinch! One of my favorites! Beautiful card, Julie!
