Power Poppy October Release-Day 5!

Hi there friends and welcome!  I hope you have been enjoying all of the wonderful October Release festivities on the Power Poppy blog.  Marcella has added quite a few beauties to her Happiest Holiday Collection.  Have you been able to decide on a favorite stamp set yet?  That's a toughie, isn't it?  Well, today's set is sure to win your heart...say hello to Cozy Cupfuls!

Oh, the sweet little images you will see in this set!  You will have a tough time deciding what to color up first!  :)  For my card today, I chose the little gift grouping with mug of cocoa.  Wanna see?

I colored up this darling image with Copics and then fussy cut it out.  I added some sparkle here and there with my Wink of Stella clear glitter pen and some shine to the mug using Ranger's Glossy Accents.  My card base is die cut from Papertrey Ink's Rustic White card stock using Spellbinders Grand Squares die set.  I used some pinking shears to cut one of the card layers out of kraft wrapping paper and stitched it in place.  I die cut some green print paper with a Spellbinders die from the Classic Squares Large set and stitched it onto a white card stock layer.  I stamped my sentiment then wrapped some ribbon around the panel and added a button with hemp twine.  All of my layers got distressed with Papertrey Ink's Chai and Chamomile inks.  Lastly, I adhered my layers together and secured  my fussy cut image with foam dimensionals and some Collall,

I l-o-v-e the darling little presents and that little deer mug.....sigh.  Now I wanna find a for real mug like that!  ;)  Again, Marcella has thought of every teeny tiny detail to make these images look like they stepped right out of a treasured Christmas memory.  How does she do that?!  

Well, that is all for my card today, but you know what's next.....please make sure you check out what my amazing Bloomie sisters have created to tantalize you with and leave a little blog love while you are there.  I hope you will be able to pop back in tomorrow for one last hurrah....the Power Poppy Blog Hop!  Until then, take care!  :)  OH, and remember....tomorrow all of the sets will be available for purchase in the Power Poppy store!

I love this card with your beautifully colored and fussy-cut image, and your design is perfect for the feel of your card. I love the soft and sweet colors and how you've even pinked the edges and stitched...such a down-home cozy feel to it. It's a delight for my eyes, and I keep looking at the details in each of your photos. Hmmm, I'm in love! Looking forward to tomorrow's grand finale blow-out! Hugs!
