Signs of Spring

Hello Sweet Peeps & Happy Friday! We hope you’re having a beautiful week and are looking forward to a little creative relaxation this weekend. I know I sure am!

Before we get to the heart of our post, I do have to remind you craft folks to take part in our monthly Power & Spark Challenge. This month, Cindy Lawrence is challenging us to....


You'll have to click HERE to read all about it and then... get in on the action to try to win a free stamp set from the Power Poppy Shop!

Just as we do every Friday, we are excited to show off our customers’ creative endeavors, and we hope that they will get your stampin’ mojo a flowin'! This week, when we scoured the world wide web, we found things that flutter and things that fly with signs of spring to boot.

So, let’s get on with this crafty bit of show & tell, shall we? 




This first creation I thought was so very clever by Aileen Ryan! I love how she fussy cut the bottom of the bouquet from the Power Poppy digital stamp set called Magnolia Sunshine, allowing it to spill out from the frame, and then allowed the the top of the image to be framed in a beautifully gilded way. Repeating the gold touch on the sentiment brings it all together royally.


Pattie Goldman!What are you doing creating such a whimsically colored birdie with all that pattern and pop?!! I have to say, I have been a fan of Pattie’s work for, well, almost a decade and when Marcella herself spotted our lovely, little fluttery Chickadee in Barberry on Pattie’s blog, I just had to share it with you here!


There are days when all I do is color. I might not have time to make a card but it is that peaceful easy feeling I get when I pick up my markers and just get lost in the art of it all! That’s why when I saw Annette’s colored up Clematis (from the Power Poppy digital stamp set Climbing Clematis) that I had to stop and just breathe it all in! Just too lovely! Even the butterflies were given such careful attention.

Ladies, thanks for sharing your artistic skill with us all. You inspire and we love seeing all the ways you bring our Power Poppy images to life in full bloom!

Speaking of “bloom”, or actually... our special BLOOMIES... it’s time to turn things over to these fabulous designers to see what they've been working on in their craft spaces this week:


And be SURE to tune in when our fabulous Bloomie Ally Cope shares a thing or two about making the most out of her card making time for our next episode of Inspire Me Monday! See you then!
