Sweet Treats

Hi there,

Yesterday, I shared a fun Christmas gift that I made for a friend, and today I'm putting it together with a card and entering it in Power Poppy's challenge this month "Sweet Treats"

When I first saw Power Poppy's stamps, I was smitten!  They have the loveliest images!  This little tree in a tea cup is from a set called Cozy Cupfuls and it is just darling.

I used paper from Close to my Heart called "Oh Deer" and waterpainted the image with coordinating inks:  Juniper, Sea Glass, Fern, Whisper, Desert Sand and Ruby.

Finishing touches are a glittery silver bow, diamond stickles on the tree bulbs, and Bitty Sparkles here and there.  The card and mats are a set from Papertrey Ink called the Noted: Scalloped A2 Die Collection.

The inside sentiment comes from a different Power Poppy stamp set "Poinsettia".  It was stamped in Delicata "Golden Glitz".

On the envelope I stamped another image from the "Cozy Cupfuls" set in Delicata "Golden Glitz".

You still have time to enter the Power Poppy Challenge as it goes until Dec 31st., and you don't need to have a Power Poppy stamp to enter.  (They do have digital images available for sale though if you should want to use one of these sweeties for the challenge!)

Thanks for stopping by today.  Especially with the big day drawing ever closer!  If I listen carefully enough I think I can hear the sound of rustling wrapping paper being taped together all around the world!



  1. This is so soft and pretty. Festive colors, wonderful little frame inside for the sentiment too. Thanks for playing in our Sweet Treats challenge this month.

  2. Such a pretty Sweet Treat! The card is so elegant and almost vintage with the soft palette! Lovely! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Power Poppy this month!
