Kicking off a Creative Weekend!

It's Friday and boy do we have a lot to share here on the ole POWER POPPY blog! Where to begin? Where to begin!!! 

FIRST UP: We are so excited to partner with the fabulous Rhea Weigand and her creative spot on the web, Passionate Paper Creations! We can't spill the beans just yet (come back tomorrow for more), but I'll give you a few hints — there will be a contest! There will be a special on one of our gorgeous new digital stamps and there will be prizes for those of you who play along! So, like I said, swing back by and see what we've got shaking. In the meantime, click on over HERE and click on the tab that says Join Group. That way, you can take part and won't miss out on a minute of the action! 

SECOND: Tomorrow is the 15th of the month, which means we're about to pluck another beauty from the Power Poppy greenhouse and add it to our Instant Garden. Translation: we'll have a brand new digital stamp to add to our Instant Garden collection, just for YOU! If you like what you see, you can snap it up and get right to printing, coloring, and creating!

THIRD: Have you had time to let the paper and ink fly and play along in our latest challenge? If not, check it out! There are stamps up for grabs and they might just have YOUR name on them! Here's what I'm talking about! It's our......

HOW TO PLAY: Play along with our design hostess Cindy Lawrence and create a card or project that's a little shabby and a little chic! Think vintage accents, roughed up edges and maybe even an antique flair!

  • 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 use the exact URL from your post instead of a generic blog address.)
  • 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 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 August 31 @ 8:00pm EST. At that point, we'll draw the winner randomly and make the announcement right here on the first Friday of September.

Even though we just ushered in this challenge last week, the entries are already starting to come in! Take a gander at this lovely by the talented Wanda Cullen!

Wanda used Power Poppy's digital stamp Gerbera Daisies and then added the shabby chic touches with distressing, sponging, splatters, and twine! This card has great country accents with the stitched-border look, and roughed up papers. I love the rustic charm and the mix of patterns. It's a keeper of a card, Wanda! Okay folks, now it's YOUR turn to show off your shabby chic side! We can't wait to see what you whip up and we can't WAIT to give away some freebies to one lucky stamper this month!

And, stamping friends, that's not the end of the inspiration! We have the Bloomies on stand by to show off some of their latest creations! Stop on by and say, “hi!”

Thanks so much for popping in ans seeing what we have on tap! Like I said, you have GOT to come back tomorrow to take in a bit of the excitement. New digital stamps! Contests! Plus, a special on one of our newest digital stamps! Too much fun!
