In the Spotlight!

Hello happy stampers and welcome to another action-packed “episode” of Power Poppy Friday! It’s that time of the week when we shine the spotlight on a few of our peeps, give the stage to some of our beloved Bloomies, and, well, for lack of a better way to say it, brag a little bit about all the fun things going on in the world with Power Poppy stamps! What’s better than Friday? Fridays with huge bursts of color and creativity!

So, let’s get right to it! First up, we feel more than a little honored that when the talented Lori Craig decided to show off a snazzy, Copic-infused technique on Splitcoaststampers.com, she chose POWER POPPY to serve as her focus. With her soft coloring and sequin-studded design, this technique is definitely “pin-able” to pull out in the future and try for yourself. Check out her full tutorial (with video!) HERE featuring the coneflower from Power Poppy’s Prairie Cheer stamp set.


MOVING ON! I have to say there were a ton of jaw-dropping displays on the web this week and this is just a small sampling of what’s out there for you to nab some creative inspiration! 

First up, we are LOVING the fabulous entries so far in our Make It Move Challenge (see more on this below). This sparkly shaker card by Traci Major is totally our cup of tea! Be sure to scope out Traci’s blog for a detail of this card, and you can get in close and see her beautiful coloring. Love the brown ink paired with pink accents throughout the card. Traci used our Cozy Cupfuls stamp, which is one of our favorites. Well done!



Our own Instant Gardener Jessie Banks truly teased us with this little snippet of coloring that she posted on Instagram. Huh? How can you leave us hanging like that Jess? This is too beautiful not to see on a card! Jessie used the new digital stamp set Chickadee in Barberry with stunning results, just look at that dappled background. 


Tricia Traxler shared her fun and festive birthday creation using Power Poppy’s Short Stacks stamp set! Her coloring is stellar if you ask me and all the little extras make this celebratory card... SING! ;-)


And last, but certainly not least, is Bloom Brigade Alumna, Leslie Miller. This lady never ceases to amaze me with her card making abilities. This one, rich in autumn’s hues, makes you just want to pause to breathe it all in! Leslie used the aptly named Feeling Fall stamp set from Power Poppy. 



Before we turn things over to our fabulously creative Bloom Brigade, we do have a fun-filled reminder for you! There are a few days left of this fantabulous challenge!


Join Ally Cope in the final days of our Make It Move Power & Spark Challenge where all you have to do is make something on your card... MOVE! Try a pull-out tag. Make a shaker card. Use one of those fun little wobble gadgets. Create a slider card. But, over and above all of that? Have fun! You have until Monday at 8PM CST to join in and have a shot at winning a Power Poppy stamp set of choice! Now that’s not a TRICK... it’s a TREAT! ;-)

Ready for a little Bloomie creativity? Well, let's just hop on over to see....



Thanks for stopping by and spending a little bit of time with us here on the Power Poppy blog! Yours truly will be back on Monday to share a quick and easy way to add a little pizzazz to your holiday gift giving! See you back here then!
