New Digital Image! Country Home Christmas by Power Poppy

GOOD MORNING! I back today with another card featuring one of the new digital images from Power Poppy. This time I used the Country Home Christmas digital stamp, previously released in clear format as Simple Joys.

I love the simplicity of this image so I kept the card design simple as well and opted for vintage tones of mauve, teal and silver.

I added clear Wink of Stella to the ornaments to add a little sparkle. I added the sentiment from the new Filigree Tree digital stamp to complete the design.

New Digital Image! Mittens and Merriment by Power Poppy

GOOD MORNING FRIENDS! Yesterday, Power Poppy released TEN new digital stamps for images that were previously available only in clear format. I’ve been on a coloring frenzy the past few days, making up for lost time when I had to limit Copic time due to tendinitis in my elbow.

I’m back today with a familiar image. I recently taught a class at the Queen’s Ink featuring an image from the Bough Wow Wow stamp set which featured non-traditional holiday colors. So when Marcella released the same image as a digital stamp (this time as Mittens and Merriment), I decided to make another card, this time using more traditional Christmas colors.

I rummaged through my stash of holiday themed paper and found that I still had a sheet of Vintage Christmas Three by Authentique which mimicked the snowflake pattern on the mitten. By using the digital version, I was able to scale the image as necessary so that I could also incorporate one of my lesser used dies for something different.

Hand Lettered Jolly Good by Power Poppy

GOOD MORNING FRIENDS! Hope you had a great Thanksgiving holiday. I spent the day with my husband and parents. I decided that I was not going to cook so I had all the dinner fixings catered — turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes & gravy, and mixed vegetables followed by pumpkin pie and ice cream. My mother loves jigsaw puzzles so we brought three new ones over to the house with us and spent the day working on puzzles in between bouts of watching football and holiday eating.

But now it’s on to the next holiday, which in my case is Christmas! So I’m back today with a relatively simple card featuring one of the new digital stamps by Power Poppy – Hand Lettered Jolly Good.
