Hello all! I'm back with more fun aimed at helping us ALL celebrate WORLD CARD MAKING DAY! Power Poppy is ringing in this special day with a handful of challenges to help card makers from far and wide to unite and celebrate the connection and creativity that is at the very heart of card making! 

Join us in the creative effort! If you are just “tuning in” click HERE for the 8AM challenge and.... STAY TUNED! By the end of the day, we'll have four challenges in all for you to get those fingers inky and take part in!



HOW TO PLAY:  As our friends in the Southern Hemisphere celebrate Spring, those of us to the North are welcoming the beauty of Fall. Two very different seasons on two far ends of the earth! Since this is World Card making Day, let's embrace the globe and capture one of these seasons on your creations. Link up your card and you'll be in the running for our Spring Forward, Fall Back Challenge! 

For this challenge, Kathy Jones our Aussie 'Hostess with the Mostess' is helping launch this challenge with this gorgeous creation using Power Poppy's Country Bouquet Deluxe! As we sit and watch the leaves change to amber, rust and shades of red, she's basking in the beauty of Spring in her home town of Brisbane, Australia!  

As Kathy says, “The earth is warming, kids are in the pools swimming, flowers are blooming and the bees are buzzing!” You certainly feel that spring-like vibe in her beautiful card, don’t you think?

Isn’t that a splash of inspiration for you? Now, it’s your turn!


  • Use Power Poppy stamps if you have them, but if you don’t -- now’s your chance to win some!
  • Play in all four for a chance at a GRAND PRIZE — THREE Power Poppy stamp sets of your choice!
  • Winners of individual challenges will receive their pick of ONE stamp set —OR— THREE digi downloads in the Power Poppy Shop!
