Power Poppy stand up card

What fun it was to make this card. I'm using three of the new Christmas stamp sets from Power Poppy and entering this in the Peep of the Week Challenge on the Power Poppy blog.  This card is made by watching the Screen Divider video on Split Coast Stampers.   I stamped all the images and sentiment in Memento black and colored them with copics. I edged everything with Tea Dye distressed ink and backed the panels with gold foil paper.  The holly border is a Martha Stewart punch and bottom is a Sissex punch.  You can tie a ribbon around the card to close it for mailing.

Pink and red poinsettia

Once again I"m using this new gorgeous poinsettia from Power Poppy stamps.  I'm entering this also in the Peep of the Week challenge.  This 6x6 card started with a red card and then I lined the pretty paper from Wild Rose Studios Holly Lane with a silver pen and some distressed ink.  I cut the image and backing die from a Sue Wilson die and stamped the gorgeous poinsettia with Memento black ink and colored it with copics.  The I covered the entire thing with versamark and embossed it with holographic EP.  It's so glittery and pretty.  I added the ribbon which I enhanced with some Victorian velvet distressed ink.   To finish this card I used the Cheery Lynn leaf and poinsettia dies and added a gem to the center.  Come over and join in the fun at Power Poppy!!!!!!

Let Heaven and Nature Sing

I made this clean and simple card for the Peep of the Week challenge this month on the Power Poppy Blog.   This gorgeous new stamp set is part of the holiday sets from Marcella at Power Poppy stamps.   This is a a5x7 card and stamped each image in Memento black and colored them with copics.  I tore some paper and sponged some light blue around to make the clouds and stamped the image in the center. Very easy and quick and card. I outlined the image layer with a gold pen to finish the card.

Merry and Bright

This gorgeous new poinsettia is from Power Poppy stamps.  I started this 6x6 card with a background paper from Wild Rose Studios Holly Lane paper pack and edged with some distressed ink.  I cut the shape for the poinsettia with Creative Expressions Sue Wilson's California Collection and background die sets. I stamped the poinsettia with Memento black ink and colored it with copics.  All of the corner dies and flower and leaves are from Cheery Lynn designs.  I added the ribbon and the tag and some gems to finish this card.  Be sure to check out the new Christmas stamps at Power Poppy, I just ordered the gorgeous O Holy Night and Heaven and Nature Sing.  I can't wait to get them and continue my holiday cards.  Also check out the gorgeous resist tutorial on their blog

Power Poppy and Cheery Lynn Vintage Christmas

This antiqued vintage card is for the challenge at Cheery Lynn and Power Poppy.   All dies are from Cheery Lynn starting with the  Coved rectangle scalloped for the Noel.  I edged it in gold pen and distressed inks.  I colored the images with copics and added some sparkle with stickles.  The poinsettia, holly leaves and opposing small flourishes are from Cheery Lynn and cut out of the designer paper Holly Lane by Wild Rose Studios.   I used distressed Vintage photo ink on the lace to give it an antique look.  Be sure to check out the newest dies from Cheery Lynn and the Christmas stamps from Power Poppy.
