Hello Power Poppy fans!! You can now head on over to Power Poppy to purchase the new Christmas sets we've been enticing you with these past few days. I'm so excited!! Marcy pulled out all the stops on these sets. They're gorgeous and charming all at the same time!! Check out all the details HERE.
I saved one of my favorite cards for last. This stocking can be found in the Poinsettia set and is just charming with it's gorgeous poinsettia adorning the top, and all the yummy filling inside. I stamped it, with Onyx Black Versafine, onto water color paper and embossed it using Black Embossing Powder (Ranger). I then colored it using Distress Markers and a Water Pen. (I'll list the markers I used at the end of this post.)
I just recently purchased a Fabric Weave embossing folder from Spellbinders, and thought it would go beautifully with this image and the rustic look I was going for. I just inked up the inside with Whisper White pigment ink (SU!), and ran it through my Cuttlebug. I love the effect I got with that. I embossed a piece of Smokey Shadow (PTI) cardstock for the left panel, and added some gorgeous new Prima burlap trim along with some burlap string, and there you have it.
Now, I'm always the caboose on these hops (Since my name starts with a letter near the end of the alphabet..;) but if you missed a stop along the way, here's a list of our sweet and talented Bloom Brigade and our fearless leader, artist extraordinaire, and just plain genuine soul, Marcella Hawley!! Yes, she's just that awesome!!
