Creative Confetti: Be Inspired!

Whew! What a flurry of activity here on the ole Power Poppy blog with the Enchanted Garden Release, eh? It's been quite the exciting week with so much eye candy that I am sure thankful that this kind of "candy" doesn't come with a calorie count! We'd all be sunk! ;-)

Being that there has been so much going on, I thought it would be fun to do a bit of a rewind on some of this past week's events and give you a little creative jolt! That way, if you missed some of the goodies, you have a chance to go back and check them all out! So, let's get on with this week's Creative Confetti and....

HOW TO PLAY: Well happy stampers, it is just as easy as the graphic says! Just take a little hop through our release week and if you stumble upon a card or technique that inspires you, use it as a launching pad to create a card in your own stamping space!

I know that I have been more than inspired this past week! There have been so many cool techniques showcased that I thought I would share a few as potential inspiration points for YOU!


Ardyth Percy-Robb had a great video and post HERE on spotlight stamping! Why not try to put an image in the spotlight and use her creation as inspiration?

Sally Allnock created a handful of monochromatic creations that are jaw dropping! Check them out HERE and, who knows, maybe they will help spark inspiration in one of your future creations! 

Therese Calvird created a buzz with her creation by using just one image and one bold sentiment! She just did a little turn, stamp and repeat! Here's a peek below but if you want a little more in the way of details, just click HERE! 

And, last but not least, this grouping of cards really knocked my socks off with their crisp and clean simplicity. In fact,I didn't get to make a sample for this challenge but I am thinking this one below might be my inspiration! Kelly Griglione created interest by masking off a section of her card -- just enough space to add a sentiment. All I have to say is WOW! I love this look. So clean and classy! 

So, there you have it, folks! TONS of inspiration for you! We hope you take a trip back through this week's blog rolls in search of a fun technique, a cool layout or a fun color combo and be inspired! Once you find that dose of inspiration, simply create and then link up your creation below! 

Being that this is the first challenge of July, we do need to take a break and put all the names of those happy stampers who played along with us during the month of June and draw a lucky name! After all the names were thrown into the virtual hat, random.org drew this number....

And that means the winner is.....
