It's a Power Poppy-palooza!

If you thought things were busy around here most Fridays, we'll you ain't seen nothin’ yet my friends because we have a flurry of activity today and guess what? It. Is. ALL. FUN! 

First off.... did you see the Instant Gardeners strut their creative stuff yesterday with Power Poppy’s brand new digital stamp set, Black-Eyed Susan? If not, you can take a step back and check it out HERE! This little dose of fall-themed sunshine is ready and waiting to buy up, download, print and color! And if you missed THIS news, there are two new digital freebies for you to grab up too! Just click the linky to learn more!

That leads me to the second big bit of news! Power Poppy is having a first-of-its-kind bundle sale that lets you decide if you want to save a little or a LOT!


Between now and Monday at midnight CST, some of Power Poppy's most beloved digital stamp sets are going on a FAB 5 SALE  and are therefore, super ripe for the pickin'! Check out these lovelies above that you can steal buy for just $4 apiece! If you want to save even more, you can pick up all five of these sets for just $15! Woot woot! I hate to enable you my sweet stamping friends, but this sale is a doozy!

One you've picked up one of these fine fall-themed illustrations, then you can hop over to our good buddies at Passionate Paper Creations and Friends for this...

To get in the running for this festive affair all you need to do is color up (you don’t even need to make a full-fledged card) one of these sets: Cuppa Buttercups, Apples in Season, Pure Prairie Bouquet, Sunshine of My Life or our newest - Black Eyed Susan and link it up on the Power Poppy post over HERE on the Passionate Paper Creations and Friends Facebook page. If you play along, you could be picked the winner of our random drawing for a $20 gift card to the Power Poppy Shop. So grab those colored pencils, watercolors or markers and get ready for a little colorfest this weekend! ;-)

If you’ve been following Ms. Marcy’s Power & Sparklette Saturdays then, you (like a lot of us) have been having a fabulous time stretching your creativity in new and wonderful ways. You can check out Week 1 HERE --- which I have to say you can still comment on -- and Week 2 HERE! A little birdie told me things will be changed up again tomorrow so keep your eyes peeled for even more fun this Saturday! There are even prizes involved, folks!

Speaking of keeping your eyes peeled, that’s what we do behind the scenes here each and every week -- looking for that creative spirit whose work WOWS us in ways unimaginable! Well, we didn’t have to look far at all for that inspiration, as this week we turned to a few familiar faces for some colorful artistry!

First up, a big huge bow to Nancy Sheads who used her own cat Phebe as her coloring muse for this spooky little scene. She used Power Poppy’s Feeling Fall stamp set and dressed it up in such a stinkin’ cute way that I just might have to C.A.S.E. this one! You can read up on all her card details HERE on her blog!

This second creation just might get you in the mood to play along in our weekend coloring contest since it uses one of the digital stamp sets that is in the spotlight. Leslie Miller added such depth and interest to Power Poppy's digital stamp set Sunshine of My Life that I had to gaze at it for what seemed like an eternity, just to take it all in! I love how she shared the markers she used so I can “try” -- emphasis on “try”-- to capture the feel like she did with this set! Read more on her card by hopping over to her blog HERE. 


Now it’s the Bloomies’ turn to “grab the mic” and sing you into the next scene! We’ve got pretty much the whole team here so let yourself roll through this link list and see what they’ve been up to!


Thanks for stopping by! We hope you stop back by tomorrow to see what Marcy has up her creative sleeve and don’t forget about playing along in the Coloring Contest HERE. I just know we’ll love looking at all the entries, and we hope to see some new faces playing along! :)

See you back here real soon!

  2. Just a little thought - maybe for future coloring contests you could consider Instagram for those who don't use Facebook?
