Introducing Flowering Santa

Good morning and welcome to Power Poppy's 2017 Happiest Holiday release.  Squeel!!!!  We are super excited to share our creations with you. Buckle up because starting October 15th through October 25th we will be sharing sneak peeks of Marcy's beautiful handy work. The Instant Gardner's will be starting us off with the newest Digi for you. Then we have 8 days of sneaks and to top it off another new Digi from the Instant Gardner's for the last day October 25th. The release day for the stamp sets is October 24th with a fun filled hop by the Bloom Brigade. AND that is your chance to shop, woot woot!!!

Today is the ever so cool Flowering Santa. Now look at his beard, is that not the coolest thing ever? Marcy sure does know how to add some creativity to even the smallest thing as a beard. hee hee  Don't forget Marcy has some inspiration behind this set over on the Power Poppy Blog.
My version is a rather light feel as I have another one started that is more traditional coloring and my classic blue, white and silver that I like.  ;-) I thought the light purple would be fun for this one.

He is colored with various Copic markers then die cut with a standard oval shape. I layered that oval onto a decorative oval shape. Then some flourished jewels were placed behind the decorative oval panel. Finished it off with some sparkle and Voila!

Sneak Peeks from the Bloom Brigade:
  Allison Cope

Ah, Stacy, what a cute Santa with this color combination, and I love your soft DP and that great die with the rhinestone flourish! What a fun card, and I'm sure he's chuckling over the flowers in his beard, right? I can almost hear him ho-ho-ho ing! LOL! Sweetness! Hugs, sweet friend! xoxo
