Heaven & Nature Sing

Oh what a fabulous set we have to show off to you today in Day Four of Power Poppy November Releases....I think it’s my favourite this month, and given what you’ve seen already that’s saying something!  Introducing Heaven and Nature Sing.  

It showcases two beautiful stand alone images of Lenten Rose (Hellebore) and Holly, and two beautiful birdies perched in said greenery, as well as other smaller accents and beautiful sentiments.  I love it!  

Here is my first take on the set with the Lenten Roses and Holly.  I began by stamping onto XPress It Blending Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black, colouring with Copics and then sponging in some warmth while my Oval Spellbinders die was still in place.  I added a tiny frilly frame around the oval and then paired it all with this beautiful paper (this season’s MME Joyous), an embossed panel, lace, ribbon, and rhinestones.  

Here’s a closer look at the colouring and the beautiful detail on this stamp.  

Above is how I decorated the inside of the card - just with ink.  Isn’t just the simple stamping beautiful?  That’s one of the things I love best about Marcy’s stamps.  And finally, here’s the Copics I used below.  

Now head on over to see our wonderful line-up of fabulous Bloomies and see their lovelies today!   And please come back tomorrow when all these gorgeous sets are released and we show off one more round of inspiration in our Blog Hop!
