Nature and Nurture Preview: Day 2

Did you enjoy yesterday’s showcase peeks of our new clear stamps? I was so giddy to start sharing this collection of images called Nature and Nurture, which range from meandering stems that could have been plucked from the prairie, to curated blooms popped into a vase, to fall’s colorful gifts presented with fresh perspective.

Today’s stamp set peeks feature two images that folks have been asking, asking, asking to see in clear polymer. I hope that it makes you a little bit excited to see what we’re sharing with you today....

Anybody recognize these? We’ve selected two very popular digital images: Sunshine of My Life and Sunflower Power — and bringing them together in a sort of sunflower supernova!

What more could you want, I’m asking ya. How about some highly versatile mix-and-match sentiments? We have those in this set, too!! The coloring possibilities with these sunflowers is totally off the charts. As I’ve mused in past blog posts, my sunflowers were a sort of ode to Van Gogh’s series painted in the South of France in the late 1800s. He arranged and painted tens of canvases in the most saturated of pigments and delicate variances of color. They became not only famous, but iconic. My ink drawing gives you a headstart to creating a rich bouquet of sunflowers, but YOU are the colorist, you are the artist dictating how these vibrant creatures will come to life! Isn’t that so much fun? Can you believe we get to be doing this?

I pinch!!! Myself — not you.

Let’s run ’round and see what the Bloom Brigade design team has made today. My friends, I’m going to warn you, I’ve gotten a headstart as gazing upon their cards, and they are all exQUISite!!!

Thank you for stopping by the Power Poppy Blog for our little reveal today. If you come tomorrow, you’ll be rewarded with some seriously cute inspiration from our team. They really are the bees knees!!
