Power Poppy Christmas Remix: Day 1!



Hello all! What an exciting 12 days of Power Poppy fun... headed your way! It's Power Poppy's Christmas Remix! During these fabulous days, you'll see remixed digital sets, released clear sets in a new way, new digital stamp sets, a Black Friday special and focus too on a whole lot of digital fun for Cyber Monday! Whew! That's a lot of holiday hooplah!

Today, on day 1, the Power Poppy designers are shining the spotlight on a Power Poppy classic! Take a peek!

That's right, we're dressing up one of two sets! Power Poppy's clear set called Poinsettia, which brings to life an elegant poinsettia, a poinsettia topped stocking and four merry sentiments. And, Poinsettia and Pomegranates, a digital version of that lush, whirly, swirly botanical beauty!

On to my creation! 


I have always loved this poinsettia topped stocking and have turned to it quite a few times to create Christmas cards. So, this creation was a bit of a reunion! I stamped my stocking image, colored with Copics and then fussy cut to pop up the image on my card. One fun thing was, I didn't want to use decorative paper, I wanted to create my own! If you look closely, you can see that on the red piece of card stock, I stamped the poinsettia and duo of candy canes from the stamp set Merry Littles using Memento Rhubarb Stalk ink, turning the paper a quarter turn with each stamp.  


After creating the backdrop, I stamped the sentiment (from the Berry Sweet Holiday stamp set) I chose this sentiment because I wanted a long and linear sentiment so I could use these little strips as an accent. You can't really sell but the oval is a piece of die-cut vellum. I was hoping the pattern would peek through just a little more. 

Because this is a set that I love, I do have some older cards I wanted to recue to share!

Have a beautiful day!

Oh my goodness, Julie - four fabulous cards, my favourite is the last Poinsettia in the dreamy pale colours and stamping in the toffee crunch is a nice change, then a little bit of teal and gold layering to bring out the colours.. gorgeous

I love poinsettias and the one from the Merry Littles stamp set is so cute!

Question:
To what size can you approximately enlarge these small images or is that not possible without it becoming blurry?

Thank you so much Julie for your stunning inspriation.
