Power Poppy's Happiest Holiday 2018 Stamp Release~Day 5!

Hello there and welcome back for Day 5 of Power Poppy's Happiest Holiday 2018 stamp release.  Yay!

Today is the day that you not only get to see the final stamp set to be debuted, but it is also the day that all of the stamp sets are available in the Power Poppy store!  More about that at the end of this post, but for now let's talk about this glorious new set, Amaryllis Bliss...

Isn't she a beaut?  Can you just imagine how many different ways you could color this gorgeous image?  After much deliberation and browsing different varieties on the internet, I finally decided to go with the classic all red amaryllis.  

I stamped my image with Memento's Tuxedo Black ink and colored my image with Copics then went back with a white Polychromos pencil to add some highlights.  After die cutting my image panel, I added some shimmer with a Wink of Stella clear brush pen, stamped my sentiment from the same stamp set, sponged and spritzed some inks around, and added some gold leafing around the edges with a Krylon 18 KT Gold Leafing pen.  I kept the card layers minimal and added a little stitching to my patterned papers before adhering them to my card base.  My image panel is adhered with foam tape.  This card measures 3 7/8" x 5 3/8" .

Aren't Marcella's amaryllis blooms incredible?  They are a really nice size so you can get in there and shade to your heart's content...:)  The sentiments in this set are absolutely beautiful and I know I will be using those a lot!  

So that is all for my card but my Bloomie sisters have some amazing cards to share with you so please make sure you check them out and leave a little blog love while you are there.  AND....take a lookie at this little promotion...

I thank you again for you visits this week and your very kind comments....I can't tell you how much I appreciated each one!  I hope you can stop by again soon, and until then....take care.  :)
