Good Vibe Five - WEEKEND!

Whoa, baby! This Good Vibe 5 is coming atcha on a Saturday!! AND I have more than FIVE Good Vibes.... I’m literally bursting with them. Did I mention I’m getting married next weekend, and we have been planning the entire thing in about two weeks? Here’s a little peek at part of our handpainted invitation, which of course I had to send out online due to the madhouse last-minuteness. Get a load of all the ferny woodland bits — that’s going to be our theme! But with vintage motorcycles mixed in! I’ve been calling the motif “Riding your old motorcycle through a ferny woodland”. Hey, folks, we are a little different over here. For a second marriage, it’s a blast to rev up the fun factor, because when you are 46 and finally marrying your true love, just put your heart into it, no matter how oddball it might seem.


I haven’t publicly announced yet the winner of our Daily Marker Coloring Challenge Blog Hop PRIZE!! (Though you can see all the winners from all the various companies who played along that day RIGHT HERE.) We had comments on our blog post, on Instagram, and on Facebook — and let me tell you, we just soaked up allll the love!! Thank you, thank you for sharing your exuberance for Power Poppy!! I hope you know, the feeling is mutual, my loves!!

Our winner of the $30 Gift Code and Merriest Berries digital stamp is the delightful ANN CUSTER. Congratulations, Ann! I contacted Ann the other day to let her know she’d won, and we ended up chatting about how our little puppies run the house. 


The art and science of the spinner card — explained! Be sure to bookmark this incredibly cool tutorial by the maven of magical cardmaking mystery, Allison Cope. With a hands-on video and THREE seriously stunning cards (each featuring digital stamps, no less!), you will come away spinning circles around everyone else!


Friends, you asked for it, and we aim to please. Power Poppy has once again paired up with Kit and Clowder to offer two new coloring classes featuring our stamps! JUST ADDED: A markers class with Tulips and Hobnail Pitcher (same image as Loving Tulips clear) - and a colored pencils class for Pure Prairie Bouquet (same as Pure Prairie Spirit clear). You get a special discount on the images if you sign up for the class, and I know that many of you already own these images, so now you can get the tips to color them EXACTLY like Alyce does. She is such a loving, encouraging lady, with talent off the charts. This is a great opportunity to learn, and it's only available to purchase until Oct. 14, so hop on over to to find out more and get signed up.


You know we are always snooping around to see what you guys have been making with Power Poppy. It’s one of our favorite pastimes! From watching newer learners develop their skills to seeing expert colorists strut their stuff, it is all quite exciting. Christine Okken wanted to be sure that we saw this fresh-faced card by Jerri Jimenez featuring our Black-Eyed Susan digital stamp set, and boy, it is something else. Be SURE to visit Jerri Kay’s blog so you can get up close to see the details she put into this creation — from the delicate strokes of her acrylic paints, to the shimmery backgrounds and scalloped edging, this is one for the keepsake chest, for sure! Always a joy to see Jerri’s precious work.


You’ve been waiting for this one, I can feel it!! FOR TWO DAYS ONLY: Pick up our iconic fall set, Sunny Harvest in clear for $11.99 (save over $6!). AND GET THIS..... you heard it here first: the Chinese Lantern image is now available AS A DIGI! iiiieeeeeeeeeee! You can come grab it for $1.99 (save over $3 from the regular price). Special pricing ends on Sunday at midnight, so zip over and save up big bucks!


I told you we are overflowing with Good Vibes today! I want to be certain that you check out our Power & Spark September Challenge: Cozy Krafty Coloring hosted by Christine Okken. There are already a ton of imaginative submissions, and we would LOVE to see what you would do with Kraft stock. What a perfect backdrop for fall! Come get inspired and then enter your card — remember, you could win a $50 gift code to Power Poppy.

But wait... there’s more!

You just gotta gotta gotta go see this week’s Hues to Use — featuring a guest post by one of my favorite cardmaking/coloring dynamos, Kathleen Sanders. Read a bit about how we got to meet her in person at CHA, and see the zingy inspiration for her delicate and dashing Apples in Season card.

We have ONLY JUST BEGUN, check out what the designers of the Bloom Brigade have made this week. You are going to go bananas!

Do you feel like you need to stop and take a deep breath? That’s a LOT of beauty and inspiration to take in. OK. Now exhale. In, out. In, out. Have you regained your composure? Time to go tackle the weekend!!!
