Poinsettias, Bottlebrush Trees and Presents

Power Poppy Peep of the Week?
Welcome to another edition of Power Poppy’s “Peep of the Week” Challenge!  We’re so close to Christmas and I haven’t even sent out my holiday cards yet.  It doesn’t help that I sold all of my Christmas cards at the Christmas Market last weekend either.  So I had to start again with making more cards to send all of my family and friends again.   Not too worry!!  It means I have been busy at work at my desk all week having fun with all my holiday themed stamps!

If you too would like to play along this month and possibly be featured on the Power Poppy Blog as our “Peep of the Week” then here are all the rules you need to know; click HERE.

Well… on to the show!

Today for my card, I’m featuring the stamp set, “Merry Littles”. This sweet stamp collection features a ton of cute little holiday images and some fabulous sentiments too!  For my focal image, I used the mini poinsettia, the bottlebrush tree and the festive berry decorated present:

I used some Glaze and Sparkling Glitter pens to add some glitz and shine!

Deconstructed Sketch #180For my card design today, I used the latest sketch from Deconstructed Sketches, DS180;

In hind sight, I might not have used such a long rectangle for my focal image but now that it’s super stuck down, I can’t fix it!  Oh well!

Are you looking for that PERFECT gift for someone crafty?
Why not purchase a Gift Card from Power Poppy?  Gift Cards come in denominations of $10, $25, $50, $75 and $100.  Something to think about for that creative friend who has everything!
