A few quick notes before we get to Day 5, our final day of Holiday previews before our FULL BLOG HOP on Friday — check this out:
Oh yes! On release day, we will share a sale promotion throughout the store. Come join me for the announcement here on the blog Friday morning.... eeeee!!
And if I may share a note of excitement. I stopped at the grocery store last night and was rolling by the magazine aisle, and lookee lookee at what I found:
Might be a little hard to make out here, but I am holding the brand new issue of CardMaker magazine with Power Poppy featured on the COVER!!! The work of our very own Bloomie, Stacy Morgan, is highlighted on the FULL cover. Inside, you’ll find a very special feature and Q&A with ANOTHER of our Bloomies, Christine Okken. Can you believe this? But wait, there’s more. Power Poppy stamps are featured in a number of cards and tags throughout the magazine. And one of our fave customers and recent winner of the entire Holiday release, Donna Phelan, has a card featured, too! Go pick up a copy and you will have enough inspiration to last you through the Holidays! (Be sure to grab some new stamps, they used so many from our Happiest Holiday Collection.)
And now, back to today’s stamp set preview... what do you think of these refreshing winter colors?
Aren’t they a pleasant addition, if not a detour, from the traditional red-and-green holiday palette? I sure think so, because I don’t like anything too traditional, I always want to make things a little more unique and special. With this new stamp set, you can showcase the winter-wonderland tones of chalky blue-green and frosty white, crisp green and bronze or silver... really, there are so many directions you can take this beautiful bough, composed of Seeded Eucalyptus, Paperwhites (Narcissus jonquil) and Juniper! Presenting the next must-have set from Power Poppy: Glistening Paperwhites.
With our newest Holiday botanical, you get four large images with which you can create the most magical wintertime cards. Scripty sentiments range from Christmas through New Years, and will work for you all season long. I’m very proud of this one, I don’t think you’ve seen anything like it before!
Just wait until you see what the Bloom Brigade has done with this one, you are gonna FLIP OUT!! Seriously. Flip. Out. These cards are breathtaking, and I hope they inspire YOU to sit down in your craft space and rock out some fresh new card designs....
So grateful for this wonderful week, for friends coming around to say hello, for a fun surprise on the newsstand, and now... I have to race up to school for my kid’s conferences! Time for more coffee!
Be sure to come back tomorrow for ONE MORE CREATIVE PROJECT by the Bloomies, plus I will announce the big savings we’ll have storewide — a gift from me to you!
Thank you, dear ones!
