Power Poppy Blog Hop



What’s up buttercup?  Have you had an amazing week seeing Power Poppy bloom?  I know we have!  Today it’s all LIVE, and it’s no April Fool's!  All the sets are available HERE and we’re just so excited to share them with you.  There are four fabulous new sets to play with.  

Now the Bloom Brigade has another peek at these sets to show off to you.  I tried another CAS design.  That’s two in one week!  



Today’s card combines two of the sets from the Release, Marcella’s Mixtape Volume 1 and Good Thinking:  Renewal.  I got a new April sketch from Becky Fleck to play with and I thought that this design would work well with these sets.  On the top of the card I embossed the tiny white feathers and then used a sponge to do emboss resist.  Then along the bottom half of the card I stamped in multiple shades of soft greens with the different size of feathers.  



The focal feathers are stamped on white cardstock and then embossed with a pretty iridescent embossing powder on the vellum.  And the sentiment from the new Renewal set works perfectly!   t

Below is the pretty sketch from Pagemaps


Here’s a quick look at all these beautiful sets!  SO delightful!  Enjoying making them bloom!  



Enjoy popping over to see what all these great ladies have in store for you today on the hop!  Thanks for making these last few days so fun!
