Happiest Holiday Day 3!

Hello folks! Boy, do we have a treat for you in day three of Power Poppy's Happiest Holiday 2018 sneaky peeks! Why? Well, we have not one but TWO sets to show off! Are you ready to jump into the fun? Check these babies out!

That's right--- look at all that cozy holiday goodness coming right at you!

Through the Woods is a set full of woodsy sentiments and evergreens as far as the eye can see! A potted tree has several birdie visitors, plus an extra bird in flight as a separate stamp, who is poised to land in the tree to "gather together" with his friends. A ribboned bough of bells, antlers, and berries and a birch-log frame gives an extra air of charm. Lots of sentiment and log slices help bring on an extra dose of woodsy fun!

Snuggle Down  is a set alive with Tartan plaid possibilities! This set has two focal images - one is a stack of wool blankets with a lantern and sleigh bells. The other a grouping of retro Thermoses and the fixings for hot cocoa. Something really fun for this set - hand-drawn strips to make your own plaid backgrounds.

Not only are these sets perfect on their own, they work well together! That make your own plaid set of stamps is just a "must have" if you ask me! 

On to my creation! 

I knew I loved the cozy feel of this image above and so, when I stamped the set, I had to start with this one! And, I had to take the plaid strips for a test drive too! When I colored up the blanket in this image, I knew I wanted to recreate the look in the plaid bits. I originally planned on using plaid for my entire card front but -- if you know me -- you know I like to mix up the patterns a bit! So, that card front got snipped down to a strip. I do think you can "see" the plaid in the colored up image, which is fun. 

Here's a closeup for you! The sentiment is actually from the Through the Woods stamp set. Like I said, these sets work so well together and I could see you mixing and matching all these sentiments and images for eternity! ;-)

Add in some fun paper, a die cut frame, a few accents thanks to my white gel pen and, who could forget a few little jingle bells! Too fun! 

Speaking of fun, the Bloomies are hanging out, hoping you'll pay them a visit and see what they cooked up with these cozy sets!

Be sure to stop by tomorrow for a charming set that takes us back in time in a way for some cherished heirlooms that somehow find their way to Christmas Trees all over the globe. You'll have to tune back in to see what I'm talking about! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Oh, these rich, warm, Christmasy colors! Love! The plaid stamp on kraft is perfect, but everything about your card is perfect, Julie!
