Short Stacks ~ Power Poppy



http://powerpoppy.com/products/short-stacks-stamp-set
Hello again friends!  Today the Power Poppy Bloom Brigade is hoping to inspire you with peeks of a set called Short Stacks.  It's a charming set with a variety of images in a collage setting.  They are absolutely A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E!!  I had a hard time picking which image to color first.  Seriously!  Well, I am a bird-aholic, and I collect coffee mugs, so I thought I would start with the Parakeet (budgie) image.  Isn't it lovely?  I colored it with Copics and layered it with a few Spellbinders dies.  I then added a sentiment banner along the top.

Here's a closer look at the sentiment.  I kind of sewed over the letters....oops...but it says "Enjoy life Sip by Sip"...I'm all for that!  Coffee, Tea, Cocktails...Oh yeah!


That sums up my card for today.  Here are the links to the Bloom Brigade Blogs with peeks to share today:
Copics:  BG13, BG11, BG10, C7, C6, C5, C3, C1, C0, Y26, Y02, YR02, YR61, YR00, YR000, E01, E00 

Happy Stamping!

Goodness girl -- you really know how to do up the shabby chic or vintage charm -- whatever you want to call it -- you are a master! Love the die cuts, the distressed ribbon and the darling way you added the sentiment! Perfection my friend!

Feminine and beautiful. I like all this distressing, the tabs in the corner and your SB layers. Beautiful Tosh... I want to be in your head sometimes when you create. :-)

Ok, so I think we have already discussed this beauty but it deserved another visit and another comment. I just can't tell you how much I LOVE this card. I think this one belongs in the card hall of fame, for sure! Girl, you rocked this sweet image in a beautiful, vintage, dreamy style that only Tosh can do! ;)
