Ready for a SNIP of Power & Spark?

Hello Peeps! Boy, do we have a fun-filled frenzy for you this Friday! We’ve got new challenges! We’ve got winnings to share! And, of course, we have the Bloomie’s latest creations to link up to! 

ARE YOU READY TO GET STARTED?  

First up, the start of a brand new month means we’ve got another designer-led challenge to get that mojo-a-flowin’ — just for YOU! This month’s hostess with the mostess is STACY MORGAN! Can we get a Woot-Woot? Without further ado...



HOW TO PLAY: In the words of Stacy...
Cut it out girlfriend! No really, cut it out. To play in this month’s Power & Spark “Cut It Out” Challenge, all you need to do is cut around your blooms (or main image) to add that extra “ooomph!” to impress the recipient with your mad cutting skills.
Want to see one way Stacy Cut It Out? Here’s a peek at the card that inspired this scissorific challenge! Look at those lush Camellias all colored up in fussy cut glory!


THE OFFICIAL RULES:
  • Use Power Poppy stamps if you have them, but if you don’t, this is a great way to WIN them!
  • Link your creation below using our Linky
  • Please mention Power Poppy in YOUR blog or gallery post with a link back to THIS challenge
  • The winner will receive a free clear or digital stamp set of your choice from the Power Poppy Shop
  • Enter as many cards as you’d like, as long as they fit the theme of the challenge!
  • Deadline to enter is May 31 at 8:00pm EST. At that point, we'll draw the winner randomly and make the announcement right here on the first Friday of  June.

GOOD LUCK HAPPY STAMPERS! Get those scissors ready to do a bit of fussy cutting and nip, tuck, snip and slice your way to artistic greatness you card-making phenoms, you!

Moving on...

It’s time — drum roll please — to reveal the name of the lucky winner of a stamp set of their choice for entering our oh-so-popular POP of PASTEL Challenge for April! We had over 50 softly-shaded entries and Random.org drew the number 26, which means the lucky lady is...

.~* ANGELICA SCHMIDT *~.

Not only was Angelica lucky, she was rather brilliant too with her entry! Look very closely at her card, as she used just a portion of Power Poppy’s Arranging Roses Digital Stamp and she blew up the rose and scissors portion to take center stage. That is some seriously cool stuff. Creative and lovely all at the same time! We love seeing folks think outside the box:


Congratulations Angelica!!! Email us at bloom@powerpoppy.com with the stamp set you would like to receive along with your snail mail addy and we’ll get your winnings on their way—or let us know if you’d prefer a digital set. You choose!

Well, that was a whirlwind of fun so far, eh? And... it’s not over!!! Now we can share the link list for our beloved Bloomies so that you can hop, skip and jump on over to their blogs to see what they whipped up on this fine Friday for all to see!








Thanks so much for stopping by and spending part of your day with us. It makes our hearts happy! Enjoy all the day holds and we’ll see you back here soon, like hopefully on Monday, when we’ll showcase a fresh episode of Inspire Me Monday! Yours truly will be hosting and I have a quick and easy background technique that adds a touch of texture. See you then!
