Cozy Cupfuls by Power Poppy

Welcome back to Rowhouse Greetings! Today I have another holiday card featuring the Cozy Cupfuls stamp set from Power Poppy. I’ll admit that I looked at that tree and my initial urge was to color those sprigs individually. Crazy, right? So I decided that the better course of action was to dab different shades of green following the lines of branches and the shape of the tree to achieve some depth and variation. I used my current favorite red combo (R35, R46, R59) to get a lush Christmas red for the ornaments and used the same combo (adding R32 as a highlight) for the ribbon. If you forget to leave a highlight on the ornaments, you can always add it afterwards with a white gel pen.

The sentiment on the front of my card is included included with the Power Poppy stamp set (and look at that lovely script!), but for the inside, I decided to add one of the sentiments from the Penny Black Festive Cheer stamp set to capture the feeling I wanted for the completed card.  I used two of the designs from the Vintage Christmas Collection by Authentique because I thought that the colors and the vintage feel would be the perfect complement for this image.

Power Poppy Week at Passionate Paper Creations

I’m over on Passionate Paper Creations blog today wrapping up the celebrations with Power Poppy, the Sponsor of the Week over at Passionate Paper Creations & Friends Facebook Group. Be sure you stop by and take advantage of the discount code displayed in our banner.

Today I’ve got a card featuring Power Poppy’s Simple Joys Clear Stamp Set. My style is clean and simple and I usually let the image take center stage, which is easy to do when the image is from Power Poppy. This stamp set also includes the sentiment shown. The central image was colored with Copic markers on X-Press It Blending Card.

Here’s a closeup of the image and coloring.

More Fancy Wreaths by Power Poppy

I’m slowly working my way through my stash of Power Poppy clear stamp sets and since most of them are holiday themed, this seemed like the perfect time of year to start getting some cards ready for the season. This card features the smaller wreath from the Wreaths Plain and Fancy stamp set (I featured the larger wreath a few days ago). Much simpler to color – only requires a few shades of green and red. I colored the ribbon in shades of yellow to make it stand out and added a little pointillism for a simple, but effective background.

The Peace sentiment is included in the stamps set. I paired the image with papers from the Vintage Christmas Collection from Authentique.

Drop me a line in the comments and let me know what you think!
