Heart Abloom by Power Poppy

Heart Abloom By Power PoppyTake a look at the latest digital release from Power Poppy! Heart Abloom is a tapestry of spring flowers fill a large, lush heart shape in this Color Story adventure! The flowers for this heart were expressly chosen for this scene to celebrate yellows, greens, blues and purples. We have Daffodils and Narcissus, a myriad of single and double Hellebores, Trout Lilies, and then the surprise guest: Blueberries! Now, here’s the thing. Blueberries ripening on the vine start out a very pale greenish-white. The same stem can have a multitude of shades in white, pink, chartreuse, light and dark blue. Hellebores also are cross-pollinated to create loads of color combinations. So, whether you take this Color Story into cool territory with green, blue, deep purple, and white, or something warmer with blushes, yellows, and peachy tones, you are pretty much going to end up with a masterpiece!

Lately, I’ve been designing cards for Copic classes where I try to use a limited number of markers so that my students don’t have to buy a lot of markers in order to take a class. However, this time I got to color just for me and could pull out lots of markers and experiment with color and blends. I’ll try to break down the various combinations here and in the supply list below I’ll simply post the list of markers.

  • Daffodils

New Digital Release – Blossoming Cherry by Power Poppy

Help usher in spring with Blossoming Cherry, the latest digital release from Power Poppy. Paired with one of three friendly sentiments, your composition will be the blossoming belle of the ball. This one is a stunner and can be simply colored with a limited palette. So pull out your markers and get coloring! The end result will be a card that any of your friends would love to receive.

I seem to have an over abundance of Christmas paper in my stash so while rummaging around looking for a design paper, I realized that the flip side of many holiday papers have beautiful plaids, stripes, and polka dot patterns suitable for any time of year. This paper was the flip side of a white, red, and green striped paper from Authentique’s Jolly Christmas collection which is finding new life on a spring card bursting with cherry blossoms. So be sure to take a look at both sides of your holiday papers – I’m sure you’ll find some patterns more than willing to transition from Christmas to spring on your cards and other projects.
