Arranging Roses


It is our first day to show off what’s new for Power Poppy in July!  I think you’ll be quite delighted by the beauty that will come your way in the next 3 days!  This month it’s an all digi-release for that instant ability to create to your hearts delight this summer!  No shipping - no waiting!  You will see some gorgeous summer flowers from the Bloom Brigade that I know you’ll want to add to your collection.  

Today we get to play with Arranging Roses!  A gorgeous pitcher full of luscious roses just picked from the garden paired with the whimsy of strawberries.  Just take a look!  



I really wanted this design to speak of summer, so I chose really warm tones of orange and warm reds for the design.  I trimmed the roses “out-of-the-box-style” on the edge of the rounded die and then added another Spellbinders fancy border behind the image with some lace.  I always think there’s something old fashioned and romantic about roses.  


A little closer look at the colouring, some enamel dots, seam biding, and twine.  Swoon!  Marcy did such a lovely job illustrating this set.  I chose to leave the sentiment off, at least on the outside and then put one inside when I know what occasion I want it for.  


I did use a lot of Copics for this one - so here they are pictured above.  


Now here’s the full line-up of the beautiful Bloom Brigade playing today....and be sure to stop by and see what Marcy has to say about this gorgeous set!

Christine, I'm sorry if my comment addressed you as Julie. Trying to do these comments quickly this AM because I have a meeting I have to go to. I just love all the peeks at all the new stuff coming. Can't wait. And digis, yea! More quickly in my hands that way!!

I've been completely wowed by what everyone is doing with this set... well, all this month's sets, actually. LOVE the rich colors of this, Christine. The reds and oranges make for a very summery and gorgeous creation. Of course, you added my fave, too -- polka dots. What's not to love? Every element looks so pretty together!
