Heavenly Peace Dove

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.

Today’s release:

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.

Garden of Gratitude by Power Poppy

EVENING EVERYONE! HAPPY DAY 3! And I’m back again with another project from the Quiet Christmas Collection by Power Poppy. Today’s card features an image from the Garden of Gratitude: Trellis Digital Stamp Set by Power Poppy.

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.

Today’s release includes:

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!

Enchanted Branches: Nativity by Power Poppy

Enchanted Branches: Nativity by Power Poppy

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.

Today’s release includes:

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:

Mossy Pots With Paperwhites by Power Poppy

GOOD EVENING FRIENDS! It’s the moment you’ve been waiting for – the new holiday release by Power Poppy! There will be two collections in this release. The first collection will be released October 23rd to October 27th. The second collection is scheduled to be released November 12th to 16th. And before you ask – the images will be available as both digital stamps and clear polymer sets.

We’re starting off tonight with the first stamp from Collection One:

The clear stamp set features two images of potted paperwhites. Here, I’m using the digital version of the third image featuring a paperwhite nestled between ornaments and sprigs of holly. I had planned on using one of the sentiments in the set, but once I had my card together, it was easier to stamp one of the sentiments from the Cozy Cupfuls clear stamp set.

Today’s card features:

Step by Step for Mossy Pots with Paperwhites

  • Cut card base from heavy weight white cardstock (110#) measuring 4.25″ x 11″ and score at 5.5″ for a top fold card.
  • Cut two pieces of medium weight white cardstock (80#) measuring 3.5″ x 4.25″ and 1.5″ x 4.25″.
  • Cut two pieces of coordinating design cardstock to 3.25″ x 4.25″ and .75″ x 4.25″. Here I used a double sided cardstock so I automatically had a coordinating pattern!
  • Adhere smaller design cardstock piece to smaller white cardstock piece, leaving roughly a 1/8″ border on the bottom only. Adhere to card base roughly 1/4″ from bottom of card.
  • Adhere larger design cardstock piece to middle of larger white cardstock piece. You should have roughly a 1/8″ border top and bottom. Adhere to card base roughly 3/4″ from top of card. It will slightly overlap with the previous piece.
  • Stamp sentiment in upper right corner of card base above the layers in a black pigment ink.
  • Print digital image on white Copic friendly cardstock and color with Copic markers. See marker list and coloring notes below.
  • Fussy cut colored image and apply foam adhesive squares to the back.
  • Adhere colored image to die cut doily tag as shown.
  • Adhere image to front of card as shown.

Coloring Notes for Mossy Pots with Paperwhites

COPICS: BV20, BG11, BG15, BG18, BG32 (teal ornament); BV20, Y21, Y23. Y26, Y28 (gold ornament); BV20, R35, R37 (berries); YG03, YG17, YG67 (holly leaves); BV20, YG01, YG03, Y000, Y21 (paperwhite); BV20, BV23 (shadows)

  • When coloring the ornaments, start with the lightest color in the combination (either BG11 or Y21) and drawn the circles for the reflections. I do this first so that I remember to include them. Then use the lightest color to apply a base coat to the rest of the ornament.
  • You will notice that I used BV20 in both ornaments to help get extra depth of color and enhance the roundness of the ornaments. Once you have applied the base coat, use BV20 in the darkest areas to help deepen the contours. You can apply your medium and dark tones overtop. You may need to reapply the BV20, and your light, medium and dark tones to get a good blend.
  • On your last coloring pass, add the darkest tones (either BG18 or Y28) only as needed in the deepest areas. Blend out only as necessary with the remaining colors to get a smooth blend.

Grandpa’s Ride for 100 Moons Creative

GOOD MORNING FRIENDS! There’s definitely a chill in the air so with Halloween rapidly approaching, it’s time to sneak in a few autumn cards before I go back to my Christmas cards. When I saw today’s featured stamps by Barb Rogers for RubberMoon, I thought that those pumpkins would look perfect riding in the back of Grandpa’s truck. So I did a little stamping magic using masking paper so that I could combine the two images into one. I’ve linked the supplies for today’s project with compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

Today’s project features:
