Full O' Color FRIDAY!

It’s Friday — Power Poppy Peeps — a Friday full of color and pizazz with a little bit of wow factor mixed in! We haven’t been sharing our little show and tell lately because we’ve had digis to release and honor to pay to Bloomies and.... well... life has gotten in the way of us sending a shout out to some of our talented customers like YOU!

ARE YOU READY FOR A POWER POPPY PEEP 
FILLED PARADE?

I AM! So, let’s get to it! First up, this card didn't only catch my eye over on SCS, it grabbed me, shook me and said, OH MY GOSH, CHECK ME OUT! I was so impressed that I just had to throw up here on the blog for all to admire. I have been a long-time fan of Sallie A.K.A. Hobby Du Jour on splitcoaststampers.com. Her work always has such a dreamy quality about it and when I saw what she did with Power Poppy’s Hellebores Digital Stamp Set, I could not help but gasp! Honestly people! This creation below is pretty enough to frame! Look at the depth of color, will you?


Just to wow you even more, not too terribly long ago, Dina Kowal, one of our favorite artists in the whole wide world did a tutorial showcasing a new printer that allows you to use all kinds of paper -- even watercolor paper -- with beautiful archival results! She used Power Poppy's Everything’s Rosy Digital Stamp Set to create a handful of cards using various watercolor techniques and man, it was hard to pick a favorite! I chose the one below, but you'll have to check out THIS ONE, THIS ONE and THIS ONE too!  What that girl does with a splash of color never ceases to amaze me -- EVAH! You can check out her product focus over on SCS HERE too!


SPRING HAS SPRUNG and with it, we can all love on the fact that our cards can be inspired by what we see all around us, right? That's why this card by Jan Tink (Janine Tinklenberg) made me smile and want to bask it its sunshiney glow! It's not often that you see tulips colored in shades of golden yellow but I am so glad that is the road Jan took when creating this card featuring Power Poppy’s Digital Stamp set, Tulips in Hobnail Pitcher. Those flouncy blossoms couldn’t have turned out prettier in my humble opinon! Oh how lucky some birthday girl will be to get a beauty like this one!


And, please, just one more!!! Linda, A.K.A. Holstein over on Splitcoaststampers fashioned this fun one below using Power Poppy's sweet and celebratory brand new digital stamp aptly called Layer Cake! Get this -- Linda mentioned that she was in a funk and had recently lost her mojo. Well, Ms. Linda, I am going to argue with you on that point because this is a watercolor washed wonder that will make the recipient SMILE fo sho!


Okay, so that was quite a bit of eye candy this week, huh? And, sweet stamping friends, I have a bit more for you! Don't forget to check out the entries coming in to this.....


You can see what everyone is doing for this You Pick 3 Power & Spark Challenge along with the official rules and linky for YOUR creations by clicking HERE! This little challenge hosted by Christine is sure getting a lot of us to stretch those creative muscles just a wee bit more! So, get stretched and play along! YOU could be this month's lucky winner of a stamp set of choice! 

Okay folks, drum roll please, time to turn things over to a few of our fabulous and fancy-free members of the Bloom Brigade as they show off how creative they got this week with Power Poppy stamps and digis! You’ll have to stop by their blogs below to see their handiwork! 


Be sure to tune back in on Monday when YOURS TRULY hosts the next edition of Inspire Me Monday. The paper has been flying in my stamp room and I am digging back in my cardmaking past to pull out a new twist on the creative process! So, come on back now, y’hear?
