October Power & Spark: Mini & Mighty

Hello Power Peeps! I can't honestly believe that we are back here in this color-infused, creative space again ready to issue another Power & Spark Challenge! Where did the month go folks? Well, today the fabulous Stacy Morgan is our hostess with the mostess and this month, she's challenging us to...  THINK SMALL! ;-)



HOW TO PLAY: This challenge is all about cardmaking in a smaller scale! Instead of getting into the particulars, let's hear what Stacy had to say as she ushers in this pint-sized challenge!
“This month is all about mini greetings! All you need to do is create a mini note or card, something that is less than 4" and not your standard card. Let's see what you can do when you create "Mini & Mighty!" 

And, just to show us how big and bold you can go on a mini creation, check out what Stacy did with Power Poppy's brand new digital stamp, Autumn's Opulence!


Check out the fun shape Stacy used to create this small & mighty card! Love the fun layers and I just know that this card you can fit in the palm of your hard would make jaws drop with that combo of vibrant colors! If you'd like the specific deets on how Stacy created this beauty, be sure to stay tuned for our Bloomie link list later in this post!

Now, guess what? It's your turn to use that creative genius of yours to join us in this month's Mini & Mighty Challenge! Why should you play? Well, other than the intense fun, if you are our lucky winner in our random drawing, you'll win a....

SUSAN SUDBURY!!!

Just take a gander at Susan's krafty and sparkly creation! Check out the beautiful debossing Susan added to her card and how she used it as a way to add a little bit of sparkle around Power Poppy's Rose and Chamomile Digital stamp! Susan used Prismacolor pencils to bring this beauty to life and then accented with distress inks around the edges. Breathe it all in, will you?

And, be sure to stop back by on Monday when one Bloomie Ally Cope joins us to host Inspire Me Monday! If you need/want a little sneaky peek of what she's doing. Be prepared to be WOWED!


Ally told me she shot a video to show you all how she combines Prismacolor Pencils and Copic Markers for stunning results. So, be sure to tune back in, I know I will! 

Until then, live life in full bloom...
