WELCOME TO DAY 2 OF THE POWER POPPY ENCHANTED GARDEN RELEASE! Today we’re previewing the new Woodland Carpet clear stamp set. Flora, fauna, fungi and other treasures of the forest floor are celebrated in this unique new 4″ x 8″ clear stamp set. Five images and five sentiments provide cardmakers opportunities to make both masculine and feminine cards. The vignettes are large enough to be a generous focal image. Available Monday, July 1st!
So here is my first creation! I stamped the image on to white cardstock and then colored it with Copic markers (colors shown below). I thought I was taking a little artistic license with the red mushroom caps only to find that it’s an actual type of toadstool. I underpainted part of the cap with C5 to deepened the color and colored over it with R46 and R24.
After coloring the remainder of the image, I inked the sentiment with Versamark and covered it with copper embossing powder from Ranger.
And then I was on a roll so I created a much simpler card with minimal coloring. I used one of the smaller images in the set and stamped it and the sentiment on watercolor paper with Versafine ink. I stamped the image one more time with a Copic safe ink and colored it. I fussy cut the image (i.e. Scan and Cut) and popped it up with foam squares for dimension. Here’s the end result.
Time to blog hop and see what the Bloomies and Instant Gardeners have in store for you. As always, be sure you stop by the Power Poppy blog.

Good morning everyone! Still working on simple holiday card designs. I had to sidetrack back to Halloween briefly – I received the new digital stamp release from Power Poppy and had to put my design team card together. More about that on Monday!
I was flipping through my die collection and came across this die from Poppy Stamps that I bought a few weeks ago at Photo Scraps. I liked it because it’s a great year round wreath – just change the colors and embellishments and you could have a wreath for any season.
I die cut the wreath image from Neenah 80# cardstock and kept all the die cut leaves so that I could color and inlay them back into the design. With some trial and error, I realized that the best way to do that would be to add a piece of double sided adhesive on the back of the die cut instead of using liquid glue to adhere each leaf. I used Easy-Cut Adhesive from iCraft (5 6×6 inch sheets per pack). I colored the leaves with a Copic marker and then picked each one up with a jewelry picker and placed the leaf back in place in the design. I added some pearl embellishments to mimic berries and paired the die cut with a red gingham design paper. The overall effect has a homespun appeal.
