Happy June Power Poppy Peeps! I hope the sun is shining in your neck of the woods and you just feel that happy bubble of creativity that's begging to bust out! Why? Well, because with a new month comes a brand new Power & Spark Challenge for you to play along with!
So, what do we have in store this month? It's a super easy challenge where you can still let your card making prowess shine through. It’s just a little softer around the edges. What do we mean? Well, check it out!
HOW TO PLAY:
This month our talented hostess Stacy Morgan is challenging us all to go “Round & Round”. Round those corners, use a rounded mat or take it to the extreme and make your entire card round.
And, as always, our hostess is here to share a little inspiration to get those creative juices flowing!
Ms. Stacy used not only a circular-shaped card base to grab your attention, she has polka dots, a sentiment stamped on a circle plus a fun scalloped circle mat along with button and pearl accents, which, I might add, are also round! She really let loose with this challenge! I should mention she used Power Poppy's brand new clear stamp, Precious Baby with just darling results -- so incredibly sweet!
THE OFFICIAL RULES:
With the new challenge, we are super excited to share the lucky card maker randomly chosen for May's Black & White with a Pop of Color Challenge hosted by Christine Okken. (Psst! click the link to see all the amazing entries this past month — such IMAGINATIVE IDEAS!!!) So, after we threw all the names in the virtual hat, here's the number that random.org drew...
***AMY MARSHALL ***
We do have to take a minute to share Amy's card, which is not only fun but thoughtful as well. Check it out!
Amy used Power Poppy's stamp set Vibrant Thanks to make sure some of the teachers that educate her kids knew they were appreciated during National Teacher Appreciation Week. I absolutely love the pop of lime and the way she added the fun accents of sponged color, sequins and who could miss that die cut butterfly. Fab job Amy! I am sure the lucky teacher that received this beauty was wowed by your handiwork!

TODAY is the kickoff for the JUNE edition of the Daily Marker’s 30-Day Coloring Challenge with Kathy Racoosin — woohoo!!
Guess what? Kathy decided to color up Big Sexy Leaves by Power Poppy to launch the challenge, and we are so excited at what she’s done. Color explosion — all done with Sharpies and Bic pens.
Be sure to visit Kathy today — she has a giveaway that will make your home more colorful, and all you have to do is leave a comment on her blog.
Saturday, June 2, Power Poppy will be a part of a GIGANTIC blog hop featuring some of Kathy’s favorite stamp companies (tee hee, we are one of them!) — and we’ll be having giveaways and Marcella will share something she’s been coloring up from our latest release. Hope to see you.
Until then... we can’t wait to see your ROUND & ROUND card ideas.
