Power Poppy Friday








Happy Friday to you all. It is time for another Power Poppy Peep of the Week Challenge.





I am having major computer issues today so this will be short and sweet.  I created this card using Power Poppy's newly released set called O Holy Night.  It is available here:  O HOLY NIGHT

Hopefully you can see that I added a little stain glassed coloring to my front window.  Our church has the most incredible stain glassed windows and as I sit and listen to our Pastor I am surrounded by them.  When the sun shines in they are so beautiful.  I kept this card simple as I was going for a masculine card.  I pray for Peace the most at Christmas time.

Power Poppy Blog Hop








Welcome to the big day...Power Poppy's latest release is now available for sale.  Marcella has really created some spectacular holiday sets.  Today I chose the Merry Littles set to create some holiday gift tags. 




For Christmas every year I give my daughters a little gift for each of the 12 days before Christmas.  It is so much fun to come up with different ideas.  I spend the entire year planning and crafting for it.  This year I decided to make a gift tag to go along with my little daily write up.  



Power Poppy's Merry Littles is the perfect set for that.  I cut out my tags with an old die I had and then stamped and colored with Copics.  Each one is sponged with Tim Holtz ink for a vintage look.  This is such a fun set and perfect for tag making.  

Now check out what the rest of the Bloom Brigade has for the blog hop:

Power Poppy's Heaven and Nature Sing






Welcome to day 4 of the Power Poppy Release.  Today features some of my favorite things to color. BIRDS and FLOWERS.  This set is so beautiful.





I stamped out my images twice and watercolored them on hot pressed watercolor paper.  I cut out each bird and popped them up.  Watercoloring the sets this week was so much fun.  I gave my little birds some red.  I thought it was perfect for a festive holiday card.  This set along with all the other sets will be available for sale tomorrow over on the Power Poppy Blog. This specific set will be HERE.

Power Poppy's O Holy Night








Welcome to day 2 of Power Poppies new release.  This set is going to "wow" you.  I love love love all the detail Marcella added to this set.  


I got out my watercolors again this week to color up this set.  I stamped it with Stazon onto HotPressed watercolor paper.  I then used Tim Holtz reinkers to color up the trees and create the sky. I was trying to create a night scene.  We always head to our little church in the woods  for a candlelight service on Christmas Eve.  One of my favorite days of the year.  I added some tiny diamonds for my sky to look like stars.  I love this set.  Did I say that already..I really do.

Power Poppy Bough Wow Wow


So excited to introduce the continuation of Power Poppy's Happiest Holiday Collection Release 2.





This set is so beautiful.  I loved coloring up the bell, holly and ornaments.  I chose some blue, red, and green Copics. I kept the background very simple so that this stamp could speak for itself.  As you can see from the above graphics there are two gorgeous stamps full of coloring possibilities. 


I embossed the back panel with an old embossing folder that needed some love.  I added double ribbons and a tiny snowflake and bling.
