I don’t know about you, but I can color images without batting an eye, but designing card layouts is my downfall. I stare blankly at the image and shuffle through cardstock hoping that I’ll be struck by inspiration. When I get really desperate, I scroll through Pinterest, but usually I just end up overwhelmed and find that after hours of browsing (and pinning crockpot recipes), I still don’t have a solution to my design dilemma.
So imagine my glee when I found out the Card Maps at Pagemaps.com! And for this month’s Power & Spark Challenge at Power Poppy, we’re asking you to “Grab A Map,” and get in on the fun! Power Poppy has teamed up with Pagemaps.com‘s CardMaps to showcase ten 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 link your creation up HERE at the Power Poppy blog. If you play along, you’ll be in the running to win a $50 Shopping Spree to the Power Poppy Shop!

Lovely card. I am in the process of making Valentines so this one caught my eye. I don’t usually make square cards but I think I will have to make one for this card map. Thanks for the beautiful inspiration.
Hey Marsha! Take a look at the first card HERE. You’ll see the same layout as an A2 card. Thanks for stopping by!
OH, wow! that is so pretty! That folk art stamp set is perfect for this sketch – I’m hoping I picked that set up in my last order!
I had my eye on that set for awhile so this just seemed the perfect opportunity to put it to use! Glad you enjoyed the card.
Yes, you sure can color and you also used this map to make a marvelous card.
Thank you so much Barbara!
Thanks for a beautiful card share AND for a heart-lifting chuckle. You described my Pinteredt browsing to a T!
