Looking for a stamp company that’s unabashedly upbeat and thoroughly original? That’s the spirit at Power Poppy.
Illustrator, graphic designer, and gardener Marcella Hawley’s irresistible stamp line is inspired by her somewhat starry-eyed take on life, with designs that boost positivity and delight in life’s small moments. Based in the Midwest, Power Poppy stamps feature whimsical botanicals, nostalgic vignettes, handlettering, and snappy sentiments. Power Poppy was founded to help folks experience the jolt of joyfulness that comes from the sheer act of making something creative and colorful, and doing it with love.
This week Power Poppy is giving away 5 clear photopolymer stamp sets – their entire February “Storm of Creativity” collection, which includes the following sets, and has a retail value of $90. These 5 stamps are Orchids Rock, Short Stacks, Potted Primroses, Big Scripts, and Good Thinking: True Love
Power Poppy’s Designer – Allison Cope
Today we welcome Allison Cope. We are so excited to have her showcase her work today on Paper Crafter’s Library. You can see Allison’s fabulous project below, but first, here is a little more about her:
Hi, I’m Allison Cope. I am a 30-something stay at home Mom to one energetic 9 year old, Spencer and wife to my best friend, Todd. Our little family of three live on a picturesque lake just East of Calgary, Alberta, Canada where I take inspiration from the gorgeous sunrises and mountainous sunsets every day. My love of paper and ink began 10 years ago and with a wonderfully supportive husband, it grew into my passion and then a job.
I am honoured to have been coloring Marcella Hawley’s, owner of Power Poppy, delightful images for quite some years. There is nothing more invigorating than stamping a beautifully detailed image and spending some relaxing time adding color using my favorite medium, Copic Markers.
Budgie Bird Card
Thanks for joining me today here at Paper Crafter’s Library! For my card today, I created a fun easel card featuring the Power Poppy stamp sets “Short Stacks” and “Good Thinking: Love Notes” stamp sets.
I began by creating a simple black cardstock base with a decorative die cut edge at the bottom. I created a fun teal green frame and adhered a fun similar label die cut in the center using the tippy tea cups and Budgie bird colored and hand cut as my focal point.
With the frame and focal label only attached on the bottom half of the card, these items easily lift up to reveal a fun inner love message and a mate for the Budgie. The front of the card remains lifted up by tucking it on the label with the card’s sentiment on it.
Thank you for joining me today and I hope you stop and take a look at Power Poppy stamps and also take a moment to check creations by our Design Team, known as the Bloom Brigade. A big thank you to the Paper Crafter’s Library for having me share my card with you today.
