Natural Wonders clear collection: Day 3



Day 3 rolling along here... and this one should really get you in the fall spirit if you aren’t already. Gotta say, though... each of the stamp sets in this collection can really be used year-round. I’ve tried to make the imagery versatile enough to not get stuck in a pile of fall stamps in the corner of your craft room. These babies can be used in spring, summer, AND fall — you’ll soon see how even today’s set has a cross-over vibe.

---------------------------------------------------



Comment on the Bloom Brigade’s blog posts during ANY of this week’s Natural Wonders release (including the Power Poppy blog). We will select FOUR blog commenters to win the stamp of their choice.
Winners will be announced by 5pm central time on September 15 on the Power Poppy blog. The more comments you leave, the better chance you have to win. Hop to it, loves!

Let me get you in the mood for today’s peeks...


When you come upon a scene this enchanting, you gotta stop and take some pumpkin pix! Like the hops vine I shared yesterday, this antiques shop is also in one of the picturesque towns in Brown County, Indiana. I loved how they made fun displays throughout their shop featuring pumpkins mixed with country-quaint antiques. It got me to thinking....


Introducing Fortunes of Fall

First, take a minute and soak in that adorable card in our graphic up there!! Isn’t Ally Cope’s card OFF-THE-CHARTS CUTE? Be sure to visit Ally’s blog to see the whole thing, there are details covered up in the graphic that you gotta see in her post.

We’ve got the sweet lil’ pumpkin vignette, and two more scenes for you to stamp and color. What do you think about Zinnias?



I thought you’d like those!! What delicious shades of these marvelous varieties, I could hardly capture them all in one shot. This is the bounty from visiting the most darling booth (Flower Hill Farm) at the Schlafly Farmer’s Market the other day — a couple selling herbs, interesting fruits and vegetables, AND flowers by the stem while their toddlers toddled about underfoot. What a heartwarming spot to visit! 

Fortunes of Fall features a whimsical scene of vintage bottles and vases, each with a perky Zinnia popped inside. The inspiration for the illustration came directly from my kitchen, where earlier this year, I grouped a bunch of random vessels together to hold Oriental Lily sprigs, which had broken off their larger stalks. Our Bloomie Stacy Morgan said, “That would be a great idea for a stamp! A mix of vases, but all with the same kind of flower in them!” I had to agree and set to work drawing it. When it comes to Zinnias, though, there is so much variety to the flower forms, I had to mix them up a bit. I snapped photos of Zinnias in my own garden, and in those of my neighbors’ who had some awesome selections. It takes a village to design a stamp set! 

One last hint at the images in today’s peeks... 


Might look familiar from a certain digital stamp in our line up! And now it’s coming out in clear, streamlined a bit, and ready to be colored up in a harvest rainbow!





Quick reminder: 
Place your order on release day, September 15, and get a discount on your new stamps with a code we’ll announce tomorrow. We’ll have sale prices on summer and fall stamps and a new digital image to boot! Saturday is going to ROCK. 

xoxoxo,
