Power Poppy ~ Power and Spark featuring Card Maps

Hello, Friends! Happy New Year! We're starting off the New Year at Power Poppy with a BANG!



For this month's Power & Spark Challenge, we're asking you to "Grab A Map," and get in on some Power Poppy Fun! We've teamed up with Pagemaps.com's CardMaps to showcase 10 new sketches featuring some of Power Poppy's fabulous stamp sets. You can find all ten sketches along with design team samples HERE

So grab a map, use it to spark a little card making creativity and then, link your creation up HERE. If you play along, you'll be in the running to win a $50 Shopping Spree to the Power Poppy Shop! But wait, there's more! Becky Fleck, the fabulous Pagemaps guru, is also offering a $25 Power Poppy gift card and all you need to do is leave a comment on THIS post!

The Pagemaps contest closes January 22nd, so hop on over soon! We can't wait to see what you create.

Here is the sketch I was given:



And here is the card I created:


I used Power Poppy's Under Glass clear stamp set and created a birthday card. Super fun set, super fun to color and so very versatile. The image is stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored with Prismacolor colored pencils. The sentiments are from the Go Wild clear stamp set.


I added lots of sparkle on this one! I used sequins, tiny gems, Clear Wink of Stella, Crystal Effects and a Clear Stardust Gelly Roll pen. I was inspired by the sparklers on the stamp. I couldn't resist laying on a lot of shine!

So that's it from me. Please buzz on over now to the Power Poppy blog to be inspired by my team mates and while you're there, grab a map and join the fun!

Thank you so much for visiting me today. Have a wonderful weekend!


Blessings!
