I have to say, I think this stamp set is my favourite set of all the sets!  I just adore those bear and bunny stamp images.

To start off, here is my Intro page for the month of December…

I used the four newest CP inks on this page; Hot Tub, Orange Peel, Pink Champagne and Sangria! So yummy together!

For my monthly calendar page I used the new stencil and some fun cool, wintry colours…

I used Skylight, Sweet Sixteen and Mint to Be inks.

Then of course, I had use those sweet adorable critters again with some Party Dress, Mint to Be, Aquatini, It’s a Girl and Be Mine inks.

Power Poppy's Christmas Remix: Handmade With Love Tags

Happy Hump Day!  It’s time for a brand new group of digital stamps from Power Poppy!  Come and take a gander at all the amazing tags from the Handmade With Love Tags collection. It’s packed full of amazing tag images for the holiday season.

For my first tag creation, I used the Reindeer tag and blew it up to put in the center of this square piece of patterned paper that I also drew inspiration from.

I just love the added sparkle on this card too…

Plus I made 3 more mini tags for my son's Christmas Bazaar using 3 of the other tag designs...

Power Poppy's Christmas Remix: Poinsettia XL

Happy Monday!  Let’s get started with Day 6 of the Power Poppy Christmas Remix shall we!

Today we’re focusing on the glorious new digital “Poinsettia XL”.  It’s just truly amazing!

For my card, I wanted lots of shimmer and shine so I first printed out my image on my laser printer and then added foil to the entire thing. I coloured my image rather simply with some soft pinky-peach Copic Markers.

Here’s a look at the card on it’s side.  You can kind of see the circular foil goodness. PLUS... I created my own patterned paper with all those holiday related words.  I used sentiments or partial sentiments from the digital stamp sets including Winter Flora, and Chickadee in Barberry.

Now, go on and check out the rest of the team sharing today…
