CHEERS TO 2016!!!

Hello all and Happy Friday! We hope your days have been nothing short of Merry & Bright! On this first day of 2016, let us be one of the first to say.....


With the holidays winding down and most of us falling into winter nesting mode, let's not forget that we are only on the 8th day of Christmas! Remember? There are 12! So, given that, don't miss out on the final days of Power Poppy's Holiday Stamp Sale! Simply enter the code HOLIDAY10 at the time of checkout to cash in on your savings!

With the close of 2015, came the close of our final Power & Spark Challenge for the year -- one where we let you hop scotch all through our past challenges to pick your favorite from the last 12 months! We called it the Power & Spark Rewind Challenge! And guess what? It's time to announce the lucky stamper who will get her pick of a Power Power Stamp Set! threw all the names in their computerized hat and drew the number.....

... meaning our winner is.....


Melanie chose Cindy Lawrence's Shabby & Chic challenge and the results were stunning! I love the antique cream feel she's got going on with the distresed and sponged edges! Just delightful! I also love that she colored up the blooms from Power Poppy's Simply Camellias stamp set with just a bit of Ranger Distress Ink -- phenominal! 

Congrats Melanie! All you need to do is email us at and share which set you'd like us to send your way! Don't forget your address and we'll pop those goodies in the mail to you right quick!

That's it from us here today! The Bloomies will be back next week after their holiday respite to showcase brand new creations and help kick off a brand new Power & Spark Challenge! Be sure to tune in on Monday when Rhea Weigand brings us the first Inspire Me Monday of the new year with a video tutorial that will KNOCK YOUR SOCKS OFF! 

See you then sweet stamping friends!
