Shall We Dance?

Hello all and happy Friday! Today not only brings the verge of the weekend BUT..... it's the first official day of SPRING! And, in honor of this lovely transition into flowers and showers, we bring you a special Power Poppy treat!

Just in case you missed it, last Sunday the Instant Gardeners popped the top on a brand new digital stamp set that is just, dare I say, luscious! What's better than buttery, twirly, swirly daffodils? So, check this out, will you?


Petals unfurl and foliage twists and twirls in this new digital stamp set called Dancing With Daffodils illustrated with love by Marcella Hawley. Daffodils and periwinkle vines almost appear to dance as they celebrate the arrival of Spring. A swirled up snail appears ready for a good time, too! Use the “Just Because” sentiment to have a springy card on hand, or use with a more seasonal sentiment to set the perfect tone.

Today, the Bloom Brigade is showing off this beauty! And, just to whet your creative appetite, here's a little teaser courtesy of the ever-so-talented  Christine Okken!  I just love the dimension she created on the background and the extra splash of bling. It is truly SWOON WORTHY!



Guess what? Christine isn't the only one "Dancing with Daffodils" today! The rest of the Bloomies have gotten in on the act!

  3. The flowers have so much depth. I love the way Marcella draws her flowers with a variation of direction for the floral blooms. So realistic. The DT surely knows how to bring the flowers alive with their versions of exquisite color!
