Simple Joys ~ Power Poppy's Happiest Holiday Collection


It's finally here!!  The Power Poppy Bloom Brigade will be sharing sneak peeks of the new Happiest Holiday Power Poppy Collection for the next 5 days, and then....we'll share an extra inspirational hop on release day October 21!!  And people...let me tell you...these 5 sets are brilliantly creative, beautiful, and full of the most delightful images and sentiments.  So, grab a cup of coffee, or a delicious snack, and hop along with the Bloom Brigade to see snippets of what these 5 sets include.

http://powerpoppy.com/products/simple-joysToday we're featuring a Power Poppy set called Simple Joys.  Now, that is totally me!  I LOVE the littlest, simplest things...a sweet little bird sitting on the railing of our gazebo, the velvet muzzle of our horses' noses, a sunrise or sunset, the cool, crisp air of Fall, a text, or call from one of my kids (they live over 2000 miles away), chatting with a dear friend...those to me are true joys (along with so many others).  I also love, what I call, "Charlie Brown Christmas Trees".  Do you know what I'm talking about?  The scrawny, droopy branch tree that everyone passes by?  That's MY tree!!! So when I saw this darling watering can with the sweet, little, ornament embellished branches...I fell in love!!

I actually went traditional with this one and used red and green.  I rarely do that because, frankly, I like to rebel sometimes, and that's about as rebellious as I can get...using non-traditional colors on my cards.  ;)  I also wanted my card to fit the feeling of this set...Simple.  So I left the layout CAS, colored it with Copics and popped up a frame for a hint of dimension.

That's it.  Easy Peasy.  Now, for some more inspiration, you will want to check out what the following Bloom Brigaders have to share.  These girls do not disappoint!!
Copics: Watering Can ~  R39, R37, R35, R32, C4 Package ~ G28, G46, G24, G21, G20 Bow ~ C7, C5, C4, C2, C00 Ornaments ~ C4, C2, C00

That's it for today y'all.  Stop by tomorrow for another Power Poppy Sneak Peek!
  Happy Stamping!

Simply Pretty! Love the striped paper from beneath peeking out. Perfect coloring, feels a bit chilly even....but in a good, festive, hot chocolate drinking kind of way!

Oh, Tosh, this is gorgeous, and I love the rich, traditional Christmas colors and the CAS design! Beautifully colored, and I love the frame and the diagonal-striped DP. Beautifully done, and I know I will love seeing this entire set! And I'm with you loving all the simple little things, along with the Charlie Brown Christmas tree. Nowadays, we tend more and more toward that! Hugs, sweet friend, and see you tomorrow!

What a great post and an even more awesome card! I l-o-v-e everything about this...from your clean and simple design, to your use of traditional Christmas colors complete with pretty patterned paper, to your precious RED watering can (I SO need one of those...and if you could add a vintage looking “G” to it, that would be great!...hee) and all the way to your California Charlie Brown tree hugging, rebel, sentimental heart...yep, I love it all! Oh, and seriously...only YOU can make even CAS look dreamy...just sayin'... ;)

I love how you framed this image and just left the white space to show it off. The splash of holiday colors showing on the sides is just the right touch. Great card.

Leslie Miller said...

Oh, Tosh, my sentiments exactly! I'm having a blast seeing all the Bloomie cards for this release. Eventually I'll make it around to everyone, but running out of time this morning. You nailed this image with your beautiful coloring and the simplicity of design.
