EVENING EVERYONE! Here we are at Day 5 of the release of Collection One in the Quiet Christmas release by Power Poppy. Tonight we have Heavenly Peaceful Dove. It features a beautiful peace dove nestled amongst an olive branch. A simple hand-drawn banner may be trimmed out and placed over the dove, and then stamped with your choice of sentiments that fit inside. The image is available for pre-order in clear polymer format. Digital version is coming soon.
I chose to keep my card simple although I realize what the impact that the die cut border would have until I put the card together. It really added a WOW factor to what started off as a relatively simple card.
I love this set and it’s one of my favorites in the entire release. We spent a lot of time this summer improving our backyard and garden. I wanted to add an espalier to the backyard but it just didn’t work out in the plans. So I was thrilled to see a sweet trellis come to life in this card.
I used the digital version of the set for my card, lining up the orange branch along the side to create the border. The background of the main image a little hard to see in the photo. I created it by inking in the color and then randomly pressing a piece of terry cloth dampened with colorless blender. This creates a background with a little texture and interest. Just remember to do it FIRST and make sure that the background is completely dry before coloring the rest of the card. I’m notorious for coloring the background after the fact, so this technique requires a little advance planning!

EVENING EVERYONE! I’m back for day two of the Quiet Christmas Collection release by Power Poppy. This time I’m featuring the Enchanted Branches: Nativity – Angel Digital Stamp Set.
I loved all of the images in this set, but was particularly drawn to the angel. My aunt believed in angels and loved to collect figurines. After she passed, I received a few of her angels and I think of her every time I see an angel image. If she were still among us, I would have sent this card to her for Christmas.
Here I used the digital stamp set so that I could resize the image as desired. The full clear set of Enchanted Branches: Nativity includes multiple ornaments, branches, and sentiments that you can mix and match to create your own scene.
I’m not going to list supplies today since it’s mostly retired stuff in my stash (even the silver sequins are retired!). But I will list the Copic markers used below:
