Power Poppy ~ Mossy Pots with Paperwhites

Hello, Friends! This is the day we've been planning for the last several weeks! It is finally time for the reveal and release of the newest Power Poppy clear stamps and digis for The Holidays 2020...This is the kickoff of our Quiet Christmas Collection and it's Quite a Christmas release! So big in fact, that we are breaking it up into two collections! Get ready for ten days of glorious inspiration from the NEW Bloom Brigade.  We have been coloring and creating in anticipation of sharing these beautiful new designs with all of you! Are you ready? Let's get to it!



Today we are showcasing, Mossy Pots with Paperwhites

Lovely, isn't it?! I can practically smell the paperwhites! Marcella is a master at illustrating florals! One of the things I like most about this set is the versatility. It can be used for Christmas, thank you and on into the new year. Today, I am sharing the thank you card I created. 

I printed my image and sentiment onto a piece of Springhill Digital paper and colored it with Caran D'Ache Luminance and Prismacolor colored pencils. I dusted a little Speckled Egg Distress Ink around the edges of the main image and the sentiment label. I used the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle die to cut the focal point, the Friendship Jar Label die to cut the sentiment, gold peel off stickers from Love from Lizi, patterned paper is Mistletoe from Memorybox and the sparkly gems are from Pretty Pink Posh. My card base is 100lb Recollections white from Michael's and I used Toffee card stock from Taylored Expressions for matting. So, what do you think about this set?

That's all I have to share with you today. Please take a moment to visit the Power Poppy blog to see all of the lovely artwork The Bloom Brigade has created to inspire you. I'll see you back here tomorrow to introduce you to another gorgeous stamp set. We're trying something different and we're posting in the afternoon, so my posts will be up at 3:00pm Pacific. 

Thank you for visiting! I appreciate it!

This looks amazing in colored pencil! And I love that it is not a Christmas card! It shows how much use you can get out of the stamps!!!

I loved this single pot and used it too. I could not help myself. I take so much inspiration from this card that you have created. The coordinating papers and the colors of the image are so pleasing.

I think this is beautiful and I'm so happy to see you creating! What a lovely idea to have a full blown release at this time. Marcella is a fantastic artist as are you with your fabulous coloring skills. Your card is gorgeous! Thank you so much for sharing. I noticed your Peel offs. Aren't they great?! They add just the right touch, don't they? Have a happy day, Barb. Hugs!
