Happiest Holiday Hop with Power Poppy

Power Poppy Holiday Stamps

Hello everyone and welcome to the Happiest Holiday Release Day Blog Hop with Power Poppy!

Today, the Bloom Brigade is here to show off all four of new stamp sets;

Aren’t all those stamp sets amazing!?!  There is so much beautiful detail built into each image of Marcella’s!

Now I LOVE Copics but I thought today I’d share a little card using some paper piecing technique.  There is something that I just love about fussy cutting… I actually find it relaxing!

So for today’s card I pulled out the sweet stocking from the “Poinsettia” stamp set, inked it with some Memento “Tuxedo Black” ink and had some fun with scissors…
Power Poppy Poinsettia Bottlebrush Holidays

I used a variety of fun holiday patterned papers form the Lawn Fawn “Peace Joy Love” 6x6 paper collection.  The smaller scale patterns from this collection just lent themselves to paper piecing.  I used the simple greeting from the “Bottlebrush Holiday” and a white gel pen to complete my card front.

Now… off you go on a little holiday hop through all of the Bloom Brigade blogs..

I've tried and tried to hold out, but OMG, I think I must have this stamp! What a fun card - love everything about it! Beautifully done!

I just love this stockings, what a clever idea to stamp on beautiful DSP!! I admire crafters like you who do such amazing job paper snipping, oh my goodness, what patience!!! I, on the other hand, wish that there was a die or a punch for every stamp set, like this one. I will paper snip if it's absolutely necessary but, I'm not very good at it. :( This new stamp sets from Marcella are stunning, I'm going to have to curve my enthusiasm and just pace myself, otherwise I will just buy them all at once!
Thank you so much Ally, for sharing this gorgeous and fun Christmas card.
