Hi there and welcome back! I am so glad you could pop back by today as we celebrate Day 4 of Power Poppy's Happiest Holiday stamp release. I hope you have enjoyed the week so far, but let me tell you....there is so much more good stuff for you to see! Today's set, Fully Stocked, is a darling collection of stockings. Take a lookie....
Sound good so far? I'll bet you will catch a glimpse of all three of these adorable stockings along the hop today. For my card, I chose to use the gardener themed stocking. It is chock full of garden markers, tools, a journal, and some branches of mistletoe.
I started by stamping my image with Memento's Tuxedo Black ink on to white card stock and colored it up with Copics. Next I used a stitched die to cut my image panel out and sponged some ink around. I used a couple of die cut ovals in green card stock to layer behind my image panel. To finish off the image I used some Ranger Glossy Accents and a Wink of Stella Clear Brush pen. While letting that dry, I stitched some patterned paper on a wood embossed panel, stamped my sentiment and mistletoe image, sponged some distress ink around, added a button and some ribbon and then adhered it to my card base. To finish my card I cut a little notch out of my image panel so it could fit snugly against my bow, adhered it to my card with foam dimensionals and rounded the top corners of the card. The finished card size is 3 3/4" x 5 1/4".
Is that not the perfect stocking for a gardener? Oh, the possibilities for these images are endless! Just wait til you see the other two stockings.....eeeeeeeep, they are precious! :) And, there are a few other sweet little detail stamps in this set....you'll love them all, I promise!
So that is all for my card today, but make sure you check out all of the gorgeousness from my awesome Bloomie sisters and leave them a little blog love while you are there. I will be joining up with everyone on Friday for the Power Poppy hop showcasing all of the stamp sets. Hope you can stop back by then. If you haven't already, make sure you stop by the Power Poppy blog to see all of the release festivities! So glad you were able to visit today and until next time, take care!
