Peace On Chickadees

We’re started a fabulous 12 Days of celebration at the Power Poppy blog with our 12 Days of Christmas December Challenge.  Each day for the next 12 days one of the Power Poppy Bloom Brigade will be posting a Christmas themed idea for your inspiration and inviting you to play along.  Katie is bringing you ADORABLE inspiration on the Power Poppy Blog today and I’ll have more details about the challenge at the end of my post.  

For today, I thought I’d pull out the sweet chickadee from our new set Tweet Tidings and create a cozy card.   I looked up some ideas for colouring winterberry and found that some of the foliage can be a burgundy green mix and some of the actual berrries can be purple.  I thought that would be an interesting colour combination for the design.  

Isn’t this fluffy little guy adorable?  That sweet little face makes me smile.  I added some white die cut poinsettias (The Cat’s Pajamas), and rhinestone gems to bling them up a little.   The sentiment is from another new Power Poppy set, Rustic Rejoicing.  

Inside the card is a simple bit of stamping and designer paper.  Here are more details about our 12 Days of Christmas...

As visions of sugar plums dance in your heads, is the paper still flying in your crafting spaces? If you love to put a colorful and personal spin on your holiday creations, we love to hear it and we’re here to help! For the next week and a half, get ready for Power Poppy’s festive and fun take on the 12 Days of Christmas – a time to get inspiration to deliver that homespun charm not only to your loved ones but around your home as well. Each day starting today, our designers will be sharing ideas on all kinds of projects from home décor to accents for your holiday dinner table to ideas on how to package up those holiday goodies with style! 

And guess what? If you play along with us during any one of the 12 days and try our project at hand, link up your creation HERE and you’ll be in the running for our Power & Spark 12 Days of Christmas Challenge.

This is one of my favorite PP stamps, Christine, and I adore the way you've really fluffed his birdie feathers and given him so much personality! The blues and purple berries are a stand out with your papers! Just love your card!!
