Hi there and happy Friday to you! Have you got big plans? I am looking forward to a couple of quiet days at home. :) I thought I would share another card I made using the adorable new Power Poppy stamp set, Cozy Cupfuls. This time I used the little tea cup complete with it's own Christmas tree. That Marcella thinks of everything, doesn't she? I mean, who else could even imagine a Christmas tree in a tea cup, right? Well, let me show you what I created with this darling image.
I love Christmas cards with a pink, green, white and black color scheme so that is the direction I took here. I used a die from Spellbinders' Long Classic Rectangles Large set for my main image panel and then layered the card around it....the finished size ended up being 3 3/4" x 6 7/8". I stamped my image using Memento's Tuxedo Black ink and colored it up with Copics. I added sparkle with a Wink of Stella Clear Glitter brush pen then added Ranger Glossy Accents on the ornaments. I used a gold Atyou Spica glitter pen to trim the tea cup and saucer and then a silver Atyou Spica glitter pen for the large ornament hook. I stitched on the green patterned paper, stamped my sentiment, then added ribbon and attached the buttons with some cream hemp cord. I stitched the black gingham paper on a white panel and then attached it to my card base. When everything was dry, I adhered my image panel with foam dimensionals.
I think this is the sweetest image...I love the detail that Marcella added to the tea cup and the ornament in the saucer. The little tree was a cinch to color up....there is so much detail, I just dotted different colors of green in there and kind of smudged it around with the lightest shade and it turned out great.....definitely a quick color up!
Well that is all for my card today, but my Bloomie sisters have some mighty pretty creations just waiting for you to see! Make sure you leave them a little blog love while you are there, k? I am so glad you were able to pop in for a visit! Hope you have a wonderful weekend and until next time, take care! :)
