TSG Poppies Blog Hop!!

Thursday, March 25, 2010

Hello again and welcome to the final blog hop for the There She Goes April new releases! Today the Trendsetters are showcasing a GORGEOUS set called Poppies!

If you've stopped by my blog from super sweet Pam's blog, then you're on the right track, but if you haven't and would like to see some amazing cards using this set, then head over to the There She Goes blog and start your journey there.


I think this is my favorite set out of the four being released this month! The poppies are absolutely breathtaking and just like the Sweet Pea set, these were made for watercolorists like me! :) Actually, I think this set may just rival my love for the Bloom set.....yep, I think it is my all time favorite floral set now! :) It's 4"x8" that contains 13 stamps and it will be released along with the other three sets on Saturday after the release party, which starts at 9pm EST in the TSG forum.

I used three reinkers to color these Poppies in; SU's Regal Rose for the base coat, Ruby Red for the mid tones and Cranberry Crisp for the shadow areas. And look; I even remembered to leave some highlights! Yay! LOL I borrowed Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch (SSSC61) for the layout and since the poppies were so bold in color, I used Basic Grey's Indian Summer collection to add to the strong, bold color palette.

Now head back to the There She Goes blog and leave your name in the Mr. Linky at the bottom of the post so you can be in with a chance to win your very own Poppies set!

Thanks SOOO much for hopping along with us these past three days! I hope you've all enjoyed the sneak peeks and we'll see you at the release party on Saturday! :)
