Good Vibe 5 - Twilight Edition

Hey cats and kittens! We’re coming out with today’s good vibes at the end of the day, ready to kick out the jams for the weekend with some zesty colors and exciting news. Hope you find a few bits of beauty to inspire your creative endeavors this weekend. Let’s do this!


How’s this for blast of summery sunshine, eh? I was scrolling like the iPhone addict I am, when I was stopped in my tracks seeing this tumbling cascade of yellow peonies by Lee Ann Barrett (@whippetgirl_ on Instagram). Check out her blog to see it in more detail, and be sure to follow Lee Ann on Instagram for more of her supremely clever creations. Stamp used: Peony Muse.

Peony Muse stamp set shown above only $14.99 - Save $3 for a limited time!


Oh my friends, just when you think she’s thought of it all, Ally Cope is back with an Inspire Me Monday to totally knock you on the floor. (But you land on cushions of creativity, so it’s all good.) Do not miss Ally’s post this week, where she delves into some seriously cool explorations of card making yin and yang. Three examples to get you into a whole new mindset!


Have you taken a few minutes to enter our August Mix & Match Challenge, where YOU could win a $50 gift code to Power Poppy just for entering a card that follows our theme? This lovely card by Kathy A. using our FREE digital download “I Can Do All Things”, paired with a pretty leaf stamp by Stampendous is totally getting me in the autumnal mood. Such gorgeous coloring and with a pretty palette that’s all about fall.


There is something REALLLLLLLLY exciting coming down the pike, and I wonder if you’ve heard the rumblings coming from Kathy Racoosin’s corner of the world. Did you see THIS POST? Kathy is taking her Coloring Challenge ON THE ROAD. And she’s coming to hang out with ME in St. Louis, Missouri! Do you want to come color with us? Watch Kathy’s blog and stay tuned to our newsletter - coming in 2018 so you can reserve your spot. Today, Tibbs and I went scouting locations, and we happened to find the most PERFECT space ever... you guys are gonna flip!

There you have it folks! But before you go, let’s review one more exciting update to the Power Poppy Blog this week, with a glowingly gorgeous end-of-summer card by the Bloom Brigade’s Julie Koerber in Hues to Use! We’d love to see what you can come up based on this palette... drawn from fun photos in my Instagram feed. (Yes, this creepy owl was on a bus advertisement next to my car at a stoplight, and it about startled me half to death.)

Now it’s time for the all-star line up, the Bloomies are back...

Check out these splendid cards by our talented designers:

Hope you looooove seeing this pretty cards by the Bloomies, and have picked up a few ideas of your own to take into the weekend. See you on Monday, when Kathy Racoosin will be here with another of her inspiring posts to help us think differently about stamping and coloring. Yeehaw! Take care, all!
