Bottlebrush Holiday

Double posts today....if you’re looking for The Cat’s Pajamas New Release Click HERE



We’re so excited to bring you our very first Christmas Holiday Stamp sets at Power Poppy!  I know you will be WOWWED this week with beautiful sets that will inspire you as you get ready to celebrate this special season!  Marcella has really put her signature touches on this release.  Today’s set is called Bottlebrush Holiday it is the sweetest little seasonal celebration of those pretty miniature trees.  It will totally win you over!  


All you have to do is search for bottlebrush trees on Pinterest and you’ll be amazed by the sweetness of beautiful inspiration you’ll find.  Marcy really captured that miniaturized elegance of the trees.  I just loved this combination in the set of the bottlebrush tree and oranments.  The banner can be changed up to have other sentiments also included in the set.  It’s very adorable!  

I stamped the image on XPress It Blending cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black and then coloured it up with some soft pastel marker colours in Copics.  


You might be able to tell that after colouring with Copics I added some shimmery elements with a glitter pen onto the ornament, tree and background.  I’ve also added glitter strips with Scor Tape and glitter and then some pretty curved felt, cut with a Spellbinders A2 Curved Border die for some warmth.  The papers are MME Cambridge Court.  Finally,  I added a seambinding bow and some sparklets and it’s all ready for Christmas!  



Here’s the Copics I used - you can click on it to make it larger if you need to.  




Now these amazing women have some more inspiration for you with Bottlebrush Holiday...go on over and visit!

Well, this one is just as pretty as can be! Love so much about it that it will be impossible to share it all! Aside from the beautifully colored image (which I am sure sparkles even more in real life) I love how you think out of the box to add different elements to make your card stand out -- the felt, the glitter strips, all with amazing results! Beautiful Christine!

Leslie Miller said...
