Howdy peeps and welcome to our very first Power Poppy Power & Spark Challenge to set your 2017 off right! This one is near and dear to my heart because when you live in colder parts of the country, you long for those bright splashes of flowery color to warm your heart... and your winter!
So, let me introduce you to the Winter Blooms January Challenge:
HOW TO PLAY: This challenge comes with a 100% smile guarantee because our hostess with the mostess Stacy Morgan wants to see your creations in full bloom! Here's what she had to say about this month's quest for colorful creativity!
“When winter comes, many of us long to say goodbye to the chill and say hello to those cheerful and fresh spring flowers! Did you know there are lots of blooms that sprout at the end of winter? How about Camellias, Crocus, Paperwhites, Holly, Snowdrops, or Poinsettias? Let’s see how you can bring these pretty little petals and glorious greens to life and enjoy this last bit of winter as well!”
Thanks Stacy! Now, if you are a little stumped on what qualifies as a winter bloom — we’ve taken the guesswork out of it for you and created a link to all the stamps in our store that would work beautifully (we include winter AND early spring blooms, plus what you might find in a hothouse this time of year - think Orchids and Succulents)! Just CLICK ON OVER HERE to see all the beauty that awaits! On top of that, Stacy provided us some extra inspiration with this clean and classy card using Power Poppy’s Simply Camellias stamp set! Not only is it perfectly colored but the embossed backdrop and little pink pearls add that extra splash of visual interest!
You can click on over to Stacy's blog listed on our Bloomie link list at the end of this post to read up on all the "deets" of Stacy's card!
THE OFFICIAL RULES:
You could say Essie created such a creative spark that she was “on fire!” She had not one, not two, but THREE entries in our Power & Spark Challenge for December and all of her creations were equally as wonderful! For this cute duo of holiday tags, she used one of the wreath digital stamp sets that Power Poppy recently released named Wreath: Birch and Evergreens.
Essie, to claim your prize, just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and let us know what clear stamp or three digital stamps you'd like. Thanks everyone for playing -- the creativity that you share abounds and inspires!
Speaking of inspiration, I mentioned that there are some of our fabulous Bloomies on standby to share their latest creations with Power Poppy stamps. Why not pay them a visit?
Have a great weekend!
