Creative & Curious Collection - It's Release Day!



Howdy Ho Happy Stampers! It is the day you've all been waiting for! It's the day when all the stamps you've been lovin' on and drooling over are now for the taking in the Power Poppy Shop! YIPPPEEEE!!!!! We have two final sets and... some dies as well! Yes, dies are back into production at Power Poppy and we couldn't be more excited!

So, let's get to the action, shall we?




We have wonderful news! A baby set has been born at Power Poppy at last! With a theme of budding flowers and marveling at the miracle of life, we introduce three core images that welcome baby with sweetness and love. Introducing Precious Baby -- featuring a baby carriage overflowing with flowers and hearts to congratulate the growing family, a little sweet pea is ripe on the vine and ready to share warm + healthy returns with the new couple and lastly, a scene straight from a vintage nursery with retro lamb planter and wooden blocks makes for a card unlike any other!


When Marcy tried to dream up the ultimate DIY bouquet set, this set -- Abundant Petals -- is the set she imagined! One impossibly fluffy Peony, three incredible Ranunculus in various stages of unfurling. two French Tulips that are dying to dazzle a crowd! And then, the supporting players: three clusters of tiny daisies to tuck in and around, two berry-bedecked leafy stems for trailing down, and lastly, a Maidenhair fern frond to drizzle and dangle. This 6 x 8" set is going to be a go-to, the combinations are too many to mention!

Moving on to my creation!

With last weekend being Mother's Day, I reached for this set to make my own mama a card that popped off the page! I love the layering elements of this set and it was a perfect holiday for a DIY bouquet!


I stamped each of the flowers used, colored with Copics and then fussy cut to create my bouquet! The good news is, there are dies to coordinate with this set! I just didn't have the good sense to use them! (Yes, even I am shaking my head!) Also, what you can't see really is the lattice die cut that created an overlay over my opal glitter paper. That was the perfect backdrop and provided just the right bit of glitz! 

And, here's a close up!


As you can see, I did add just a wee bit of glitter glue to the center of my little daisies to add to the bling factor! Just a quick note! This isn't the only stamp set being released that has a coordinating die set! You can check out the entire collection and matching die sets HERE! 

And, if you are feeling lucky, there's still time to enter our giveaway that could land YOU and a FRIEND the entire collection! What?? Really?? Yaaaaassss! Really! Check it out!



And that, dear friends, is it! While that's all I have to share, this is definitely not the end of the inspiration and fun! 


And as we bid farewell to sneaky peek week, these ladies have a fanfare of awesomeness to show off today! So, pay them a visit, will you?




So glad you spent this week with us all! It was so fun creating this flurry of samples! Oh... I almost forgot! If you like this collection, Marcy has a special deal just for you! What a treat this is, right???

We hope you love these sets as much as we do!

I have most definitely been waiting for this day and placed my order first thing! Wow, Julie, you've knocked my socks off with this gorgeous card, and your mom had better hold onto hers, too. Gorgeous with the lattice background. The baby set is the sweetest thing ever, too. Ohhhhh, love it all!

What a stunner Julie! Love the glittery back drop of your textured stenciling. Love the coloring on your blooms!

Absolutely gorgeous Julie... beautifully colored... I do love to fussy cut but that is a lot of fussy cutting :) I don't always love the white edge that a die cut leaves but either way I love this.
