Wish You Luck

Just a quick and easy card for a coworker who is moving on to a new job. The card features the Wish You Luck digital stamp set by Power Poppy. I thought the bouquet would look too flat is all the clover used the same color combination so I came up with four different green combos to give it a little depth.

Thanks for stopping by!

Cuppa Buttercups

PPAUG1603D_CuppaButtercupsIt’s the 25th of the month and you know what that means — a new digital release from Power Poppy! This month’s release is a much simpler image — one that can be colored up in a matter of minutes. Cuppa Buttercups was introduced in Power Poppy’s very first release in the set called Marcella’s Mixtape. So here it is, fine-tuned a bit and presented with all new sentiments.

Like what you see? Want to see more? Of course you do! So be sure to check out the fabulous creations by the Instant Gardener team for a little inspiration.

June Instant Garden Introduction: Pure Prairie Bouquet

Rowhouse Greetings | Pure Prairie Bouquet by Power PoppyIt’s the 15th of the month so that means a new digital release from Power Poppy and this month Marcella has outdone herself. Earlier in the summer, Marcella spent time immersed in the study of prairie wildflowers, looking through the native plants of regions all over the country, including the Midwest, Great Lakes region, and the Northeast. Marcella first shared this image when it was still a work in progress and then again as a fully realized watercolor. This beautiful prairie bouquet features coreopsis, coneflowers, asters, prairie clover, bee balm, and Indian paintbrush. I loved it so much that I threatened (jokingly, of course) to go on strike if Marcella didn’t release it in digital format. Luckily, I didn’t have to do that!

As you can see, I flipped and rotated the and then cropped it to focus on a specific area of the digital stamp. That’s the beauty of working with digital images — it’s so easy to experiment with the image to make it your own.

For the inside of the card, I printed the full image as a watermark and overlaid it with one of my favorite sentiments from the Countryside Bouquet Digital Stamp.
