We’re kicking off a brand new set of Power Poppy Polymer! Marcy is releasing SEVEN new sets and calling it all the Midsummer Stunner! I think you’re going to love what’s in store over the next few days. We’re so excited to show them to you!
Today we’re kicking it off with a beautiful new set that is design to send messages of healing and hope in difficult times. It’s called Soothing Sympathy, and it’s so very lovely. In this set you’ll find botanical illustrations featuring symbolic images: "There's rosemary, that's for remembrance", wrote Shakespeare in Hamlet. A simple peony stem symbolizes peace. And the curling sprig of forget-me-not for reasons we don't have to explain.
I started with the beautiful sprig of peonies, colouring them in rich burgundy shades to really give it a rich pop of colour, then pairing it with some soft buttery-yellow designer paper. I think these two colours give it a warm and comforting feel.
I added some embossing on the simple strip of burgundy paper and some pretty creamy lace, with a few enamel dots to finish it off. Nicely clean and simple, but I think that often works best when you’re creating a card like a sympathy card.
Here’s the Bloom Brigade bringing you beautiful inspiration today!
And you’ll want to visit the Power Poppy Blog to see what Marcy has to say about this beautiful set. I’ll see you back here tomorrow with more in store!
