Power Poppy Day 3: Frosted Gingerbread!

Hi folks and welcome to day 3 of the oh-so-fabulous Power Poppy Happiest Holiday Collection Release! I cannot wait to show you a sneaky peek of today's set! It's so sweet, you could get a cavity stamping with it! :-)

Say hello to Frosted Gingerbread! I just love the spicy smell of gingerbread fresh from the oven. And the thought of spending an afternoon with the kiddos decking it out -- what's better than that? Well, this set is darn close! ;-) It comes not only with this darling little house (as shown above), but a sugary sweet border that makes a wonderful centerpiece on a card as well! Want to see?

I stamped this darling border with Memento Espresso Truffle ink and then colored it up with a mix of Copic Markers. I used YG11, YG13, YG17, E31, E23, E25, R21, R27, R81, R83, R85, Y35, YG00, YG03, and YG06. I took YR0000 and highlighted around the images to give it a warm glow.The word "Sweet" was colored thanks to a red Copic glitter pen. In real life, it really sparkles!

Here's a close up! 

I added some paper piercing, a cute little ruffled trim gingham border and a few die cut hearts with a little bling! The paper is a mix of Stampin' Up and a bit from my decorative paper stash. And that, my friends is it! Want to see the fabulous ways the Bloom Brigade used this set? Just hop on over and see.......

I totally love your Christmas goodies! I have such fond memories of making Christmas cookies when I was young and even older. And my mom so loved making them each year. She made it all and was ready to celebrate on Christmas Eve with all kinds and a house beautifully decorated with so many poinsettias! Can't wait to play with these! Just the sweetest card with your coloring and lovely heart for the sentiment and especially love your ruffled-edge ribbon! Hugs!
