Happiest Holiday Blog Hop!

Hi all! It's a fabulous day at Power Poppy! Why? Well, after showcasing the Happiest Holiday Collection all week, today is the day when YOU can order and get your hands on these beauties!!!

Oh my! When you see this collection all together, it's rather stunning, wouldn't you say? You can see all of these sets HERE in the Power Poppy Shop

As a way to celebrate this release, the Bloom Brigade is ushering in a holiday card making parade! It's a time when we reached for our favorite images, created with them and joined together to share them all with YOU! 

On to my creation!

For my card, I knew I wanted to use that darling little gingerbread house in the new Frosted Gingerbread set! Oh my, isn't it sweet? I started by stamping my image in Memento Espresso Truffle and then I colored it up with Copic Markers using E31, E55, R27, R21, Y01, Y06, YG17, YG13, YG11, BG0000 and G28. After I was done coloring, I did add a bit of razzle dazzle with the help of some glitter glue!


I should mention that the paper is a mix of Bazzill and C'oredinations. I used a snippet of May Arts ribbon and a few Spellbinders dies -- Classic Circles LG and Beaded Circles. The embossed scalloped edge is from Stampin' Up and the top is a Swiss Dot Embossing Folder from Cuttlebug. Add a splash of rhinestones and some Antique Linen Distress ink and... voila! Done!

Want to see what the Bloomies (a.k.a. the Bloom Brigade) whipped up with this oh-so-fabulous release? Well, hop on over and see......

Just so very homey with the plaid and warm colors and, of course, the darling gingerbread house and sentiment. I can't wait to use that sentiment! It will be so great on a tag with Christmas cookies! You made the perfect card again, Julie!
