Olive and Oak by Power Poppy

I first colored this image by Power Poppy when it was released as a digital stamp, but wanted to  give it another try with the extra sentiments and stamps in the expanded set. But frankly, I didn’t feel like coloring today, so I pulled out some embossing powders to see what I could do.

Some images just need the enhancement that coloring provides, but Marcella’s artwork has so much life and detail that it can take center stage all by itself. So a little heat embossing and a few layers of paper later, we’ve got a beautiful card to kick off the upcoming holiday season.

Acorn Ornaments

Acorn Ornaments by Power Poppy

It’s time for another new digital release from Power Poppy. This time Marcella was inspired by her collection of glass acorn ornaments, so after a little rooting around in the harvest decorations she came up with this set of images and accompanying sentiments for your coloring pleasure!

My card is pretty simple this time. I’m getting ready for vacation so I have to temporarily put my Copics aside to get ready. So I put this card together quickly to show off a simple image on a simple card.

Bittersweet Wreath

Rowhouse Greetings | Autumn | Bittersweet Wreath by Power PoppyHow quickly it has turned to fall here! Although the sun is shining, the weather has turned blustery and cool.

Looks like autumn has arrived at Power Poppy as well. Marcella has given a bit of a shearing and a plumpen-upping to her remixed Bittersweet Wreath. The digital images download in a flash and colors up easily to make a beautiful Thanksgiving, fall, or holiday card front. Two sentiments accompany this sweet and simple set.

This image is so quick and easy to color up that I just picked a variety of reds, oranges and yellows from my Copic collection. It’s hard to tell from the photograph, but I used a lot of different shades in order to get some variation in color across the wreath. Use my selection for inspiration or simply pick colors which you already have. It’s hard to go wrong with this image.

Thankful to Have You in My Life

I’ve been a fan of Stamping Bella for awhile and even bought a few stamps earlier in the year, but I’m just getting around to actually coloring any of them. This Tiny Townie is a particular favorite so with pumpkin season upon us, it was time to get coloring!

These Lawn Fawn plaid papers make mixing and matching patterns so much easier. One paper for the front and a coordinating paper for the inside.
