Holiday Sparkle




We’ve come to the big day!  Today all the new Power Poppy Happiest Holiday sets are in the store and we’re delighted to show you one more round of inspiration with these gorgeous sets!  

Today I put together two of the sets from the Happiest Holiday collection, Holly Go Lightly and Glistening Paperwhites.  These two sets play really nicely together to create a crisp, clean yet festive design.  

I stamped the holly branch, coloured it up, trimmed it out, and then cut it into three pieces to place behind the pretty paperwhite blossom.  Pair it with a really fancy scrolly die and it really shines!  



I’ve edged some of the pieces of the card with silver paint, and added some glitter pen to the paperwhite bloom, though that never seems to show up on the blog well, but I know you can use your wonderful imaginations to picture a wee bit of sparkle to the little flower.  Plenty of bling and sparkle also included in the ribbon and the red rhinestones.  



Here’s the Copics I used. 

Now, before you hop on over to see the other beauties in the Bloom Brigade, how about some SALE news, just in time for the new release?  


Is our Marcy awesome or what?  


Take it away Bloom Brigade!  And thanks so much for your kind words this week, we’re so glad you’ve enjoyed our Happiest Holiday collection.

Wow, wow! Christine, this is GORGEOUS! I absolutely love the holly and berries, and your coloring is exquisite! And then adding the paperwhites is brilliant with the layout against the embossed background and the glorious fancy scrolled die. Beautifully done, and a card that I think is very extra special for someone. And I love the added sparkle with the ribbon! WOW! Love it, and thanks for all the wonderful inspiration this week! I'm stoked! Hugs, sweet friend!
