Snuggle Down Through the Woods ~ Happiest Holiday 2018 Power Poppy Preview Friday!!!  Have you been enjoying the Power Poppy previews the last couple of days?  Well, I hope you enjoy these next ones just as much.  Today, the Bloom Brigade is featuring two warm and cozy sets, and they are just super adorable and charming!!  I used mainly the stripes in the Snuggle Down set to make my plaid background, and I have 4 cards to share.  Each one has the same plaid design with entirely different looks and feel.  
I got out my Minc machine for these babies which made the plaid
super easy to replicate in different colors.  I used 5 different cardstocks, three different foils, and one plaid design in which I used all the stripes Marcy included in this set.  I also used the ribbon and bells set from Through the Woods.  I went a bit modern with my first one.  The background is dry embossed to give it a knitted sweater feel with the cool turquoise/white plaid.  I just photocopied my design onto turquoise cardstock and Minc'ed it with white foil.  Minc'ing is great for getting fine details in images.  I heat emboss too, but I can get stray flecks, and sometimes embossing powder can get overly thick.  That's why, when I have very fine details like the silver bells and ribbon, and the fine plaid stripes, I go straight for my Minc machine.

The red/black plaid feels like a cozy blanket to me, so I used black foil on red cardstock and diecut the background with Spellbinders' Square Swatches die.

I made a frame with the third color.  I thought it felt a bit more rustic and masculine.  The sentiments are from two new Power Poppy sets:  Through the Woods and Let Your Heart Be Light

Last, but not least, I have an elegant, shiny plaid to share with you, that I combined with the ribbon and bow image from the Through the Woods stamps set.  All are Minc'ed with silver foil.  The bells are on matted silver cardstock, and the plaid is on a dark gray cardstock.  The sentiment is also from the Through the Woods set.

Whew....that's finally it for me today.  Check out what the other gals have to share:

Oh, yes, Tosh, you were on a roll with the tartan/plaid cards, and I LOVE them all! I love how you've used your Minc machine to get the details of the plaids, and they sure are beautiful! Each of these is perfect for a different kind of person, and I love the masculine ones, which are very hard for me to do. Haha! Love them and can hardly wait to see the whole release! Hugs and love! xoxo
