Hello happy stampers! It's DAY TWO of Power Poppy's amazing new holiday release -- QUIET CHRISTMAS -- and I have to say Marcella is bringing us some of the most charming images ever! If you missed DAY ONE, please click HERE to travel back to the Power Poppy blog and get caught up. If you're ready for more, you're in the right place because today's stamp set is all about the peace of the holiday and the reason for the season. Set your gaze on this beauty, will you?
Enchanted Branches features a whole host of imagery that can be used on its own or as tiny glass ornaments delicately hanging from an evergreen branch. The sentiments are beautifully scripted and really bring about the peace of this beautiful season!
On to my creation!
I have to say, I was completely enamored with the angel in this set. She is so beautiful and while I used her as an ornament, I could see so many ways to put this beautiful illustration into play. I also doubled up on the branch, just to give a little more greenery at the top. From there, I colored up my image using Copic markers. I decided to keep with the red and blue theme that I started with THIS card yesterday. Do you ever decide to use scraps from a previous card and say -- hey, why are all my cards the same color scheme? Yep, I do that! ;-)
I also wanted to look like light was being cast down on the angel. So, I used a mix of yellow Copic markers and flicked color in that direction.
Here's a little closeup for you!
Before I let you go.... just a few notes about the release -- if you haven't noticed, instead of sharing these new sets each morning, the Bloomies are moving instead to a happy hour format! ;-) We're posting every evening at 5PM Central, for five nights in a row!
Each night you'll have a few options to tickle your creative tastebuds! You can purchase the clear stamp we’ve revealed OR you can purchase the digital download versions of the illustrations and sentiments — IMMEDIATELY. No waiting. Purchase, download, print, and you can be making a card within 10 minutes.
And, a new feature, which I am super excited about. Power Poppy --for the first time ever-- is offering release bundles for a limited time! You can pre-order the 5 stamp sets that we’re sharing in October. You can also pre-order the 5 stamp sets that we'll be sharing in November (yes, even before we unveil them! Oh, you know you'll love them. This isn't a high-risk purchase! LOL!)
