April Digi Release Today: Flowering Branches

Good day to you!

I’m releasing a new set today that, wow, if you wanted to, you could possibly go outside your front door to find inspiration for coloring on this very day! Spring-flowering trees are bursting into bloom across the land, filling the air with fragrance, filling our hearts with promise.

I’ve illustrated a flowering crabapple tree (Malus species), but this week I have been enchanted by all manner of spring trees, from weeping cherry to espalliered apple, almond and pear, and if you start getting into the redbuds, dogwoods, and magnolias... I can’t even go there yet. Too much awesomeness, every where you turn! Here’s just a snippet of what I’ve captured the last few weeks:

Masses of cherry trees lining the walkway at Missouri Botanical Garden

Gorgeous hot pink Columnar Apple tree at Missouri Botanical Garden called 'Maypole'

This baby pink weeping cherry tree is raining down sweet fragrant blooms near my folks’ house

A fabulous crab with dark cranberry-colored foliage and petals that look almost tie-dyed
This flowering crabapple tree is low to the ground and very wide, with the most welcoming branches for climbing. No children can resist to get up in it!

So, are you feeling the fizzy fun of flowering branches? Maybe you’re ready to see the set I designed that shows off the blooms and fruits and leaves all in one package? Well, here we go! Flowering Branches is ready to bloom!

To see this set in an array of fabulous ways, let’s run around to the Instant Gardeners’ blogs, my all-star team of designers who work magic with my digital stamp images. You’ll flip over what they’ve done with Flowering Branches:

Thank you so much for coming by today, and I hope you’ll give this very flexible set a try. It’s quite large and can be rotated all manner of ways for various effects. Plus, the set comes with TWO digital sentiments, created just for Mother’s Day! Enjoy and have an awesome spring day, hopefully filled with flowering trees!
