The Christmas Remix: Poinsettia and Pomegranate

We’re excited to bring you a power-packed week ahead with Power Poppy’s Christmas Remix!  In the next week you’ll see some of our Classic Christmas Stamps, All New Digital Stamps, new images that have only previously been in polymer now offered in digital and a SALE!  Click on the Power Poppy link above and you can comment to be in the running for a $15 gift code to the Power Poppy store!  

I think you’ll be blown away hopping through the blogs this week as you get to know our brand new designers on the teams and see their amazing artistic ability with Marcy’s images.  


Today we’re kicking it off with the beautiful classic set, Poinsettia or in the digital format as Poinsettia and Pomegranate.  For today’s card, I’ve used the polymer stamp set.  After all these years, I still can’t get over the gratifying feeling of pressing a stamp onto paper and the magic of lifting it up to a beautiful image!  This one is such a beauty with the arrangement of flower, greenery and fruit.  

I stamped the image in opposite corners on XPress it Blending Cardstock.  I love how it looks like it is spilling over the corners of the card.  Colouring is done with Copic Markers and finishing details are added with Prismacolor Pencils.  


For some pretty sparkle I added a strip of Scor Tape and glitter, and it’s all tied up in a simple Baker’s Twine bow, a few added sequins accent the card.  

And now, take a look at all the inspiration from the Instant Gardeners and Bloom Brigade!

Love how you colored this as well as the layout. I never think about only using a part of a stamp.
