Christmas Remix Hop: NEW Poinsettia XL digi

This is day six of the Christmas Remix Hop and we are showcasing the new and gorgeous stamp called Poinsettia XL.  I for one, just love these XL digi's as they are great to color and bring to life.

Here is the card that I did with this beauty.

It sure filled up a Christmas card.  I colored this with my Copic markers and added a strip of striped vellum with the sentiment heat embossed in gold.  A few red sequins for a little more sparkle and it was done.  I actually colored while I listen to a book on audio.  Yes, I am a multitasker.

You can find this digital stamp here Poinsettia XL

The powerhouse of a Poinsettias. This digital download supplies three variations of this vivacious, velvety Christmas classic. With slightly puckered and rippling leaves, you can add lots of dimension and life to this festive plant though your coloring. Includes a large single bloom, Poinsettia with a stem and secondary leaves, the stemmed image with hand lettered "Joy to the World", AND a 5x7" supersized, full-bleed image to steal the show! Each image includes a light grey version for no-line coloring. Go XL and really dive into those petals this season.

Want to see what the Bloomies and Instant Gardners have done with this fabulous design?  You will need to take a look at these ladies.

Christmas Remix - Day five

I am so very honored to be a part of this creative company filled with artists.  Marcella has been one of my favorite artists and her stamps and digi are so much fun to color and bring to life. 

I am joining this group as an Instant Gardner and bringing you my designs several times a month

The Christmas Remix Hop - Nov 20 - Dec 2

Showcasing existing and new designs on alternating days ... 
This is day five of the remix and I was able to get a post in. You may have seen the first four days and all the beautiful projects that the other designers have made.  This will be going on until the 29th of November. Get your running shoes on this is epic! 

Today we can show off some of our favorite designs in digi or clear. 
I am bringing you some of the most recent cards that I have made that are some of my favorites.  You can make cards like this too.  Go over to the shop and see all of the fun stamps and digi there. 

This card reminds me of the cold and snow that they have back home right now.  I used the stamp set called Grandma's Snowflakes. I heat embossed them scattered across the die and used gold embossing powder. Then I sponged them with distress ink to look like the blowing wind. I actually fussy cut the biggest snowflake and pasted it over the embossed done for more dimension. The die that I used is a favorite too and is called Anjas Square by Marianne.  This is a 5 X 5-inch square card.  It looks so rich and regal in Cranberry card stock and gold.

You can find Grandma's Snowflakes here

A little extra for today,  I am including some recent cards that you may have seen on Creative Confetti, the fun monthly challenge that is a part of Power Poppy.  There is a random prize and there are no rules.  That makes it pretty easy to join in and a good way to get free stamps for your collection.

These cards were made with the same stamp set from Power Poppy and it was called 
Under Glass Christmas Keepsakes

Be sure to take a look at what the other team members have for you on this hop

Christmas Remix Hop: NEW Winter Flora digis

This is day four of the Christmas Remix and Hop from Power Poppy. 

If you have been following along since the start, you will not believe your eyes when you see what we have today.  This is such a fabulous design and it can be used in so many ways all year long.  I sure loved coloring this one up and so will you.

Winter flora

Whimsical, wildly wonderful, and a total wow — Winter Flora is a botanical set that goes beyond. You'll love tackling this tangle of Poinsettia, Sweet Bay Magnolia, and Hellebores plus verdant bits of Holly, Pine, and Spruce, punctuated by berries and glass ornaments! There are so many ways you can take this. You can go classic red, white, and green. Think pink with various shades of pastel prettiness. Infuse warm glimmers of yellow, bronze, and gold. You get multiple versions of this bodacious border — with and without sentiments.

I chose to go with a pink magnolia and white hellebore with the pines and ornaments. 

 This is colors with Copic markers and in some cases, I used Spectrum Noir markers, then touched it up with colored pencils.  I am taking Amy Schulke's classes and boy have I learned a lot. This is only one image of this digital stamp.  After coloring, I added some sparkles and glossy accents to the berries and ornaments. There are so many images that you will love. Since we are leaving to visit family, I only had time to do a few of these images.  But you can be sure that I will be taking some with me on that long plane ride to Cairo, Egypt.

 Here is a better view of how the card looks. 

Ok, now pick up your jaw from

I could not resist making one more card with this gorgeous image.  This time I used different colors and sponged a snowflake background. 

Ok, now pick up your jaw from
the floor and see what the other 
Bloomies and Instant Gardners have for your delight.

There is more coming tomorrow, you will not want to miss it. 

Just go Power Poppy
