Sending Joy
by Nancy Penir


Greetings Poppy Fans! If you love the holidays, and all the traditions that make them special, then creating holiday cards is right up there at the top of your 'to do' list. My card today is a combo of some of the newest stamps and dies and hopefully will inspire you to get cookin' on your holiday card making.


Holly Vine Sidekick Frame and Stencil lets you as artist, bring your special color touches to your cards.


After taping the stencil over the leaves, I simply added a bit of sponged ink on each holly leaf. Don't you love the way the veins of the leaves stand out after sponging on the ink? The added texture of color just makes them pop!


Poppy's Clear Stamps I used have matching dies, and note I cut 2 of the smaller poinsettia image. Here's why:


Once I finished copic coloring my poinsettia, I fussy cut the center petals of one, and adhered it to the center of the first whole image with a bit of foam tape. The very center has some Stickles added.


Plenty of room on the frame image to add my sentiment. First the word 'Joy' with embossing powder, then the rest stamped,

(note: the embossing powder I used is Ranger's Liquid Platinum), and JOY filled in with my copics.


Hope you're inspired to play with a few of Poppy's new holiday collection! And be sure to come back every day for more inspiration! Happy crafting!
