Christmas Corgis with Power Poppy!

Mornin’ Friends!  If you’re looking for my The Cat’s Pajamas Release post, please scroll down.  It’s a double post day :)

Welcome to our Happiest Holiday’s Release for 2018 at Power Poppy!  We’ll be delighting you for the next 5 days with new stamp sets every day!

Today its Christmas Corgis!  All in honor of the Power Puppy, Tibbs. He may be a real stinker as an actual pet, but in cartoon form, he's pretty cute! Three Corg-centric images with a holiday border snippet and plenty of corny Corgi sentiments.  

I thought it would be fun to take those short little legs and make Tibbs jump over the line of Christmas decor - but knowing Tibbs, he might eat it all first :).  I pulled out a TCP die to create the slider mechanism over the line of stamping, trimmed out our little pup after colouring with Copics and then attached him to the pennies to make him do his little jumping routine.  

Here’s a closeup of this little cutie.  It’s a really CAS style with a stitched die, buttons and baker’s twine as the accents. 

And you can see I’ve added the little paw prints included in the set within the channel to peek through as he’s jumping.  He’s so darn cute!

Oh my, Christine, what an adorable card and a fun way to have our Power Puppy be "in action!" I love the CAS style with the sweet little border, and that face!!! Hehe! Just love it and love your card, sweet friend! This will definitely draw a smile and even a chuckle! What a smile on his face too! (Probably could add some captions to him...hehe!). Hugs and love, sweet friend! xoxo
