Bough Wow Wow!


Oh you guys....welcome to one fantastic week of New Releases from Power Poppy.  If you thought last month’s edition of the Happiest Holiday Collection was great, you’re going to be even more impressed with what’s coming your way this week in round two!

Today we’re here with Bough Wow Wow...such a fun play on words for this cozy warm set.  Here’s what Marcy had to say about this new set:  

"Let's put some Wow into these Christmas Boughs!!! This set features two splashy, greenery-stuffed swags, and each one is large enough to take center stage on a card. One is loaded with holly leaves and berries, plus vintage glass ornaments.   The second bough is boxwood with woolen mittens, ribbon, and fuzzy pom poms! A tiny pom-pom trio, a knit snowflake, and a handmade heart are accents for this set. 

Take a look....


Yeah...gorgeous right?  This beautiful bough of mittens, pom poms, ribbon and heart are SO lovely!  They make such a beautiful statement on a card that doesn’t just have to be for Christmas.  I pulled out some older papers I had in my stash - Echo Park Keep Cozy and gave it a pretty blue/green icy palette, with the exception of that red red heart, front and center.  Stamped on XPress it Blending card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and then die cut with Labels Eighteen Spellbinders.  




The paper does a lot of the extra work with some pretty stitching, cotton lace, enamel dots, a button and twine finishing it off.  

Here is the inside of the design - which I just LOVE....look at that little nordic snowflake sweater themed stamp!!  


I stamped it in the various colours I had used on the outside of the design and I love how it looks!  


Here’s the Copics I used above. 





Take a little trip down inspiration lane visiting the rest of the Bloom Brigade and their creativity with this set...
