I recently purchased this sweet and beautiful Power Poppy stamp set called Cozy Cupfuls , as soon as I saw this set I knew I wanted it, all of this images are just gorgeous, whimsical, so endearing and perfect for making cards for the Holidays.
I absolutely love this pair of Cardinals, how sweet is this image? I went to Google to look for pictures of female Cardinals so I can more or less color the female. Males are a bit easier to color, they are just red but the females have some shades of light brown, orange, gray and a bit of red too, I hope I captured her color well.
I stamped the image onto a panel of Canson water color paper with Stazon Jet Black ink and colored it with the aqua painter and this SU markers: Real Red, Bravo Burgundy, More Mustard, Pumpkin Pie, Crumb Cake, Tangerine Tango, Wild Wasabi, Old Olive, Garden Green, Regal Rose, Sahara Sand and Basic Gray.
The sentiment comes in this set, I just inked it up with Old Olive and Regal Rose markers to stamp it.
The pattern paper is from a HUGE block from The Paper Studio I bought at Hobby Lobby on sale some time ago, I don't think I've made any dents in it, this will probably last me like forever.
The ribbon on the top of this card is from my stash and the Poinsettia is stamped with one of the images from another fabulous Power Poppy stamp set called Merry Littles , stamped onto a piece of pink card stock, colored it with Prismacolor pencils and snipped out, I attached it with a dimensional and place a few Rhine Stones in gold for the center.
This is the banner that inspired this card.
I absolutely adore this tree!
Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
