Good Cheer Up in Here!

Howdy all!  And welcome to another edition of Power Poppy’s “Peep of the Week” Challenge!  If you would like to join in the fun this week, you can check out the challenge rules right here.

This week I’m showcasing one of our newest release stamp sets called “Merry Littles”.  This stamp set is jammed packed full of sweet holiday images like mistletoe, holly, a Santa hat and much, much more!  So very useful!
Good Cheer by Allison Cope, Power Poppy

I started my die cutting my star shape, air brushing on some Copic E53 for some colour and then stamping the sweet little Christmas tree with Versamark ink and added some silver embossing powder.  Add added some cool sparkly silver string loop de-looped behind the star.

I used some Memento “Rich Cocoa” ink for the die cut scalloped circular sentiment, also from the “Merry Littles” stamp set and added a vellum snowflake behind that!

For my vellum band, I first tore the edges of the vellum so the edges appeared more jagged and nature looking.  Then I took that little Christmas tree image again, using Versamark, and stamped them back to back all along its length.  I also added a touch of Copic R17 to all the little ornaments of the Christmas trees.

I couldn't resist using this great sketch from Freshly Made Sketches today for my card design:
I also took some colour & shape inspiration from the photo aspect of this week's Fusion Card Challenge.  I used the silver colour from the star and bells, the creamy colour from the music paper and the star shape too!

The very first Power Poppy Sale is coming, which will run for a full 24 hours on Black Friday!
