Springtime Love by Power Poppy

GOOD MORNING FRIENDS! I’m back today with a new project featuring the Springtime Love clear stamp set by Power Poppy. I think this was the first Power Poppy stamp set that I purchased – primarily because I loved this image – but somehow I’m only just getting around to coloring it!

There’s lots of small details in this image, but don’t let that deter you from giving this one a try. Just take it slowly, one flower at a time. Believe me – it’s well worth the effort. For the layout, I kept the color scheme simple, but used a variety of dies and an embossing folder to add texture.

That’s all for today! I’m prepping cards for upcoming classes so stay tuned!

GOOD MORNING FRIENDS! How are you coming along with your holiday cards? Holiday shopping? Decorating? Or shouldn’t I ask? As for myself – no comment.

Yes, I’m still making holiday cards so I’m back today with another featuring the Holly GoLightly clear stamp set by Power Poppy.

I stamped the image with Amalgam Ink and colored it with Copic markers. I actually colored this image several weeks ago and just go around to making it into a card. Apparently, either I didn’t keep track of the colors or have since lost my notes (either is certainly possible).

For the lacy border, I cut a 1.75″ x 4.25″ strip of white cardstock and used one of the dies in the Lacey Edger 1 set by Pinkfresh Studio to cut the long edges. I recently purchased a Xyron Sticker Maker which I used here to adhere the lacy border die cut. I have a variety of adhesive sheets which I use to adhere intricate die cut, but some of my dies don’t cut cleanly through the layers. So the Xyron really made it easy to adhere the die cut instead of using a liquid glue. Since I’m short on storage space, I really hesitated to buy yet another craft gadget, but I’ve already put this one to use several times so I think it was a worthwhile purchase.

Newly Remixed Holiday Digital Blitz

GOOD MORNING FRIENDS! I’m back for the final day of Power Poppy’s Christmas Remix. Today’s card features the Fully Stocked clear stamp set – and who better to describe it than Marcella herself:

Do you know HOW HARD IT WAS to narrow this down to only three? The stocking struggle is real. Luckily, each of these special stockings was carefully curated, decorated, and trimmed to the nines. Plus they’re fully stocked and each one comes with a coordinating accent image. We have a gardener’s dream with a journal, tools, tags, and trimmings, complete with mistletoe accent stamp. A vintage European-style linen stocking has sleigh bells, greens, gifts, and a pretty pear. Accent this one with the greenery-topped bell. Lastly, give the gift of childhood with the button-and-appliquéd stocking, filled with kid-centric delights. A group of buttons makes a nice background stamp. Three scripty sentiments work with all of the illustrations beautifully. 

And with no further ado, here’s today’s card!

I hope that you’ve enjoyed all the design team projects and found some inspiration for your own cards. If you stop by Power Poppy, you’ll see that Marcella is releasing a bevy of new digital stamps that previously had only been available in clear polymer format. The designers pulled out all the stops during this extended blog hop so be sure you stop by their blogs and give them some love!

O Holy Night by Power Poppy

GOOD MORNING FRIEND! I’m back today with Day 3 of the Power Poppy Christmas Remix. Today we’re featuring the O Holy Night clear stamp set (show below) and the Snowy Church digital stamp set.

I don’t think I can say it any better than Marcella herself:

This snowbound country church on Christmas Eve sets a serene scene in your holiday cards. Whether colored daintily with the light and shadows of the moon falling across the new fallen snow, or given a very simple monochrome treatment, this set says Peace On Earth.

I have a thing right now for coloring night skies so I couldn’t resist doing it here. As beautiful as it is though, I can’t take credit for the marker selection though. It seems to me that I followed Elaine Hughes, although I can’t find the link at the moment. At any rate, the color selection provides that lovely moonlight glow blending into darkness.

Well I’m running off to pick up my parents! (No, it’s not pizza day, but they decided that they needed to do their “winter” grocery shopping. This could take awhile!). So in my absence, be sure you check out the beautiful cards created by the rest of the team. And as always – check out the Power Poppy blog.
