Happy Hello all! And.... welcome to the final day of the Happiest Holiday Release. It's the final day because right this very minute now -- all of the sets that we've been sneaky peeking -- are LIVE in the Power Poppy Shop HERE!

We do have one final set to show off and I tell ya, this one is an absolute show stopper! Take a gander, will you?

Amaryllis Bliss features a blossom that just so happens to be the quintessential winter scene stealer! Placed in pots or nestled into arrangements, showy Amaryllis blooms festoon mantels and holiday tables, sparkle from windowsills and consistently elicit gasps of "ooh" and "ahh". How about a few blissful Amaryllis on your cards, too? A trio of flowers beg to be colored in delicious reds, pinks, and whites — accented by your choice of greenery. Sprigs of fragrant cedar and jasmine would love to be tucked under the petals. A few Amaryllis leaves are included, too! There's also three pretty sentiments sharing holiday peace. Just a note -- Power Poppy will also have dies to match this beauty!

On to my creation!

After stamping not only the main image but a trio of leave sprigs, I have to tell you I had a hard time deciding which blossom to use as my inspiration. There are so many varieties of amaryllis that you can really just have so much fun with a variety of color schemes!

I did a search and stumbled upon THIS variety. I found it just a little more unusual with the light green accents. So, after I stamped, I grabbed my Copic markers and used R14, R24, R27, G20, G21, G24, and G27 to color up the petals and leaves and then G20 and Y35 to color up the stamens.

Here's a closeup! If you look at the photo above, you can see that I used a vellum strip and some gold embossing powder to add a sentiment (also from the set) around my fussy cut image!

The rest is just matting it all up! I chose some simple papers and a simple design since the fussy cut image really was where all the detail rested. Add a little gold button and... ta da! Done!

These fine ladies below have a whole lot more eye candy to add to the mix, sharing a little more beauty and wonder centered around some Amaryllis Bliss! So, stop by, say 'Hi' and leave them a little love!

Wow is right, Julie! This is gorgeous, and you all saved the best for last! I am exhilarated seeing the beautiful cards, and I LOVE the flower you chose as your color reference. Wow, I also love the fussy cutting and how you've arranged the flowers on the DP and added the embossed sentiment on vellum! STUNNING, sweet friend...really a THUD card!! Definitely in my order today (well, I got it all...haha!). Hugs and rest a bit! xoxo

I just have to stop and say that after looking at all of the illustrations for this stamp set, it is one that I must have. Marcie is so blessed to have you and the others to color up her designs. Keep them coming.
