Power Poppy Sneaks: Poinsettia!

Hello all and welcome to the final day of the Power Poppy Sneaks showcasing the Happiest Holidays Collection! Don't you just love these images so far? Well, just like I promised, today's set is as pretty as it is classic. It's a set that I just KNOW I will be reaching for time and time again to deliver some Christmas cheer!

Ahhh..... doesn't this Poinsettia image just beg to be colored? Can't you just smell the pine needles and feel the soft and silky Poinsettia petals? I just love the beautiful imagery in this set and I know you will too! 

In addition to that stunning image in the graphic above, you'll find this elegant stocking adorned with a poinsettia, a splash of ribbon and stuffed with goodies. I just love the sweet feeling captured in this image! Don't you??

I started by stamping my image in Memento Espresso Truffle and then colored it up with Copic Markers (R81, R83, R85, G40, G43, G46, G20, Y21, YR0000, and E81). After coloring it up, I cut out my image and the rest is just matting it all up! My papers are a mix of Theresa Collins' Santa's List, Stampin' Up and a bit from my paper scrap bin. I stamped the sentiment on a strip that I notched the end off for a pennant effect. I used a couple Spellbinders dies -- Layered Poinsettia and the die cut behind my image is Fancy Lattice.  I added a bit of bling and some paper piercing and... ta da! Done!

Here's a close up! 

And that, my friends, is it! I can guarantee that if you hop around and see what the rest of the Bloom Brigade whipped up with this set, you  won't regret it! So... what are you waiting for? ;-)

Beautiful card, I really like your design and the two tone die cut poinsettia. Marcella's image is so lovely.

Julie, I love the soft colors you used to make this lovely card, not that bright greens and reds are not pretty. I love the lattice background and I have this die so, how lucky can I get. Thank you so much for sharing.

Leslie Miller said...

Sweet and pretty! Your color choices are scrumptious and I love the lattice setting for the stocking. If I didn't have this set already I'd run straight to Power Poppy and buy it just because of this card!

Stacy Morgan said...

Feminine and gorgeous! I really love this layout and all around design. Your coloring is fantastic!

Allison Cope said...

It's so soft and dainty and pretty! Love the die cut back drop for your beautiful stocking! Simply gorgeous Julie!

Well, I'm inspired with this darling Christmas stocking! What a sweet card, and I love the Fancy Lattice behind to make the stocking pop! (And I see you paper pierce from time to time too! I love it!) Lovely, sweet friend!
