Day One Midsummer Stunner Collection

Good morning and welcome to Power Poppy's Midsummer Stunner Collection. That's right we have some gorgeous sneak peeks for you of seven, I repeat seven stamp sets. Whohooo!!! These seven sets will all be fully available June 28th in the PP store.


The next five days we will share samples of one or two sets per day, how cool is that! So let's get started with our Midsummer Stunner Collection
 called Soothing Sympathy.


When I create sympathy cards I tend to use blue and creams a lot and I am not sure why other than they are soft and soothing. My sentiment is behind the main panel using a circle die cut in the designer paper. The flower is colored with Copic markers and then cut around so that I was able to pop it up on the front. A stitched die cut border for the designer paper and a ribbon tied around the base. A few pearls and voila!

Marcy has some insight behind Soothing Sympathy over on the Power Poppy Blog for you to check out. Remember we have seven sets to show you over the next few days and orders can start on June 28th when they go live in the PP store.

Oh, Stacy, this is so gorgeous! Your coloring is exquisite, and I always love your fussy cutting (so perfect). What a serene card with the soft DP you've used and the gorgeous blue! I love it and love the layout with the ribbon and lovely pearls! Absolutely stunning and will be loved by the recipient. So excited to see more and to see two more sets tomorrow. Hugs, sweet friend!

I find blue to be soothing, as well, and this is so lovely. Your coloring and design and the paper you chose are all stunning in a very quieting way. I'm thrilled for this release. It's your first ever without me, sniff sniff.
