Lighting a Spark!

Hello happy stampers & welcome to another action-packed, fancifully artsy Friday! There was so much out there on the blogosphere to light that creative spark this week that we can't wait to share just a handful of what we saw! We're downright giddy about it actually! 

First up, we're on Week 3 of Marcella's invitation to us all to partake in a few mini challenges to unleash MEGA creativity! This week, she's urging us to.....

Color outside the lines? ReAlLy? Can we really do that? Well, you have proven that you not only CAN do that, but you are all rocking this concept. And.... lots of artists are showing off their skills using Power Poppy‘s new downloadable freebie called “Let It Be.” (Note: ANY image may be used in the challenge!) Marcella led the way with hues of vibrant blue, and many followed suit and put their own spin on this digi! Like Holstein HERE, Lisa Lara HERE, CreatingColors HERE, or this beauty below by Danni Bindel. If you haven’t downloaded this free Power Poppy digital stamp, come grab it up for yourself! While you’re there, pick up the companion freebie — I Can Do All Things.


Floating around on Instagram, I spotted this colored up creation by Heather a.k.a. @hmz61979. She posted this beauty a while ago, but since I don’t frequent Instagram as often, this was a new-to-me creation! I just love unexpected surprises, don't you? I just love the variation in Heather's coloring, which shows off and defines this Ranunculus digital stamp perfectly.


I found this touch-of-fall creation below by Patti Willey @pattisstampingstudio on Instagram. If you have a few minutes, click HERE and scroll through her recent creations. Oh my!! She has a ton of Power Poppy designs and all are just as striking and pretty as the next! I love this card using In Praise of Sunflowers. The colors just POP on that neutral backdrop, don't you think? 

QUICK NOTE: Want to share your cards and projects on IG? All you need to do is add #powerpoppy or #powerpoppystamps and we’ll find you! Use #powerandsparklette for this month’s Coloring Outside the Lines challenge) @marcellahawley is frequently there peeking and posting!


Well I think all of those ladies are applause worthy! Thank you ALL for sharing your creations and spreading a little artsy love along the way. You inspire us at every turn!
