The Happiest Holiday Hop with Power Poppy!


It’s official!  All of the latest Happiest Holiday Stamp Collection sets are on sale in the Power Poppy Shop

This month’s new releases include:

But there are 4 other stamp sets in the Happiest Holiday Stamp CollectionBottlebrush Holiday, Frosted Gingerbread, Joyful Arrangements and Poinsettia. And each one is striking beautiful in its own unique way.
Today I’m going to showcase the beautiful “Merry Littles” and the “Bough Wow Wow” stamp sets together.
Featuring "Merry Littles" & "Bough Wow Wow" by Power Poppy designed by Allison Cope

I began by stamping my bough onto X-Press It Cardstock using Memento “Rich Cocoa” ink and colouring it with my Copic Markers.  Then I stamped the “Holiday Hello!” greeting using Memento “Lady Bug” ink.  I even added some Stickles to make some of the piece sparkle…

Introducing… Heaven & Nature Sing!

It’s the final day of sneak peeks for the newest Power Poppy stamp release!  Yup… tomorrow you will be able to purchase all four new stamp sets… but first, I want to introduce you to our final and most beautiful stamp set of our release... “Heaven & Nature Sing”!


If you joined me yesterday, on my blog post here, I was talking a little bit about making a card that wasn’t quite what you pictured in your head… Well… let me tell you!  TODAY is a new day and this card was EXACTLY how I had pictured it in my head!  I spent probably 2 and half hours just colouring up this baby…

Can you say “Copic Obsessed”? LOL!  Just a lil’ bit!

My favourite colour is purple so I had to try and use purple on a holiday card. Sometimes purple is quite hard to use but I knew somehow I could pull it off!   Just have to say… this is my favourite card of all my release creations so far! Awwww... aren't those little birdies the sweetest thing you've ever seen?

Now that you’ve checked out my purple-ious holiday card, you need to check out what my fellow Bloom Brigaders have created using the “Heaven & Nature Sing” stamp set too…
