Springtime Love


Our first Power Poppy set, hot off the presses, may have you hearing the alluring tones of a French accordion and whispering Ooh La La. Springtime Love  is in the air and this set embodies romance -- with passionate petals and love-laced sentiments. Illustrated by Marcella Hawley as she went in for the kiss, this beauty of a set measures 4" by 6". 

As soon as I saw this DIVINE image, I knew that it was the first one I was going to create with!  Such a gorgeous bouquet of flowers just begging to be made into a card!!  I started with a base of Blushing Bride and layered with soft green bazzill and then a layer of white and a piece of MME Lost and Found Heirloom DP.    Across this I've added another piece of white punched with Deco Fan border punch and topped with more Heirloom DP.  Around this I've attached a piece of pink ribbon.  I've stamped the large bouquet from Springtime Love in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured it with Copics!  Then I was thrilled to find that it can be perfectly cut out with Spellbinders Small Circle Nestabilities!  YAY!!  I've matted this with a piece of soft green card cut with Large Circle Nestabilities and matted again with white cut with Spellbinders Stately Circles.  I've popped this up on X-press It Foam Tape to add a little dimension.  Next I've stamped this sweet sentiment, also from Springtime Love and made it into a notched tag and then finished with a couple of white pearls.
