June Challenge: Let's Go Round & Round

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:



  • Use Power Poppy stamps if you have them. If not, it is a great way to win some!
  • Link your creation below using our Linky (please use the exact URL from your post instead of a generic blog address.)
  • Please mention Power Poppy in YOUR blog or gallery post with a link back to THIS challenge
  • The winner will receive a $50 SHOPPING SPREE TO THE POWER POPPY SHOP
  • Enter as many cards as you’d like, as long as they fit the theme of the challenge
  • Deadline to enter is June 30 @ 8:00 PM EST. At that point, we’ll draw the winner randomly and make the announcement right here on the first Friday in July!
    -------------------------------------

    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...


  • The lucky number is ten, which means the winner is....

    ***AMY MARSHALL *** 

    Congrats Amy! You've won a $50 Shopping Spree to the Power Poppy Shop! Contact us at bloom@powerpoppy.com and we will send your shopping code.

    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! 


    Before you go, you can't leave without hitting up these links below and seeing what some of our fabulous members of the Bloom Brigade have to share! Thank you, Bloomies, we love you!
