Holiday Day 3: Under Glass Christmas Traditions

Happy day to you.

The mornings are beginning to be crisp and cool here at the Power Poppy HQ in St. Louis, Missouri, which means I am enjoying writing today’s blog post from my favorite spot in the house... across from the fireplace. Coffee in hand, laptop on lap, cat also on lap, puppy lapping up something or other that he probably shouldn’t be lapping... life is good. The rest of the day will likely be a blur of driving kids to and fro, scrambling to complete design deadlines while kids are at school, grocery shopping, errand running — I truly cherish quiet mornings. Breathe in, breathe out. :)

Surrounded by coziness and calm, we’re ready to launch forward with Day 3 of Happiest Holiday sneak peeks — and I’m filled with enthusiasm to introduce this one to you! Have you been able to see the first two days of bombastic Bloomie posts? Scroll on down if you want to catch up — so far we’ve had a cheery snowman with Nordic details and a rustic woodsy set, and the cards the ladies have created are nothing short of astounding! So, what do we have for our third new stamp set?

Have you noticed that everybody is going

Put all the things under glass! Domes, bell jars, cloches, Mason Jars, juice glasses — I don’t care what it is, but QUICK, find something really cute and stick it underneath!! What happens when you put something “under glass”? Well, my friends, it’s a hard to pinpoint, but the between the reflection of the glass, the whimsy of the contents, and a little bit of Christmas magic, everything just looks EVEN CUTER. 

See what I mean when you take a gander at this peek from Under Glass: Christmas Traditions.

With THREE holiday vignettes, a tall glass dome with a decorative wooden base, floating ribbon accent, and a couple of sentiments, you’ve got everything you need for extreme cuteness. 

If you already enjoyed our spring-and-summer themed cloche stamp set, Under Glass, this one is a great companion. The images are a little bit larger, and as with the other set, are ideal under the dome, but are equally cute on their own.

You don’t have to take my word for it, just see what the Bloom Brigade has created with Under Glass: Christmas Traditions.

Eeeeeee!!! We’re those adorable?! Seriously, I want to put all the things under glass. Our kids are lucky that I haven’t popped a giant cloche on top of both of them, holding Tibbs the Power Poppy while wearing Santa hats and dappled in fake snow. Yes, they are lucky indeed. SEE YOU TOMORROW — this next one is going to make you do a double-take at just what kind of barber has been tending to Santa Claus’ beard.

Wow!! This is stunning! (I think I say that a lot in here!) Really. I love the DT cards! Can't wait to see the full stamp set!

Heidi Stamps said...

Very unique idea, Marcella! Looking forward to the full reveals!

You are right...cloches are everywhere. I personally do not own any but I stick things into large glass jars with lids instead. Seems to work. Love all the cards today...of course. Cheers.

Oh, Marcy, what a fabulous set with this cloche! The Bloomies outdid themselves yet again, and I LOVE the vignettes for the inside! Sweetness and so you!! So get going, girl, and keep on chugging...which I'm sure you are! Thanks again, and see you tomorrow! Hugs and love! xoxo
