O Hoppy Day ~ Power Poppy everyone!!!  I hope you are enjoying the Power Poppy Previews.  I tell you, these stamp sets are so fun to work with.  I just adore Marcella's unique twists to her images.  Today, I'm sharing two cards that feature Ales.  This set is called O Hoppy Day, and it has already come in handy for me a couple of times.  I chose to make my first card a Dark Ale.  Now, if I'm honest, I have to tell you, about a year ago I didn't know there were much differences to beers because I don't drink them.  Now, my son makes his own beer and is starting a garden to grow hops, so I know more than I ever wanted to.  hahahaha  

Below, you can see I popped the glass up to give it some dimension.

I love the bottle caps that Marcy included in this set, so I decided to make my first card a tri-fold card and include a belly band with the bottle cap on the front.  I just adore that sentiment!!!  I also stamped the barley in a pattern on kraft cardstock for the front of the card.  It's so easy to do with a Misti, and if you don't have one, the stamps are clear, so it's much easier to line them up precisely.

For my second card I needed a lighter Ale for a Brother-in-law.  I included some foam on top by adding some Liquid Applique.  I thought it was a super fun and effective addition.

Below you can see how I made the foam spill over the side using the Liquid Applique.

For the inside, I just had to include the bottle cap again.  I can't help myself.  It's so perfect!

That's it for my projects today.  For some more "hoppy" inspirations, make sure you visit the following Bloom Brigade Blogs:

Great cards love them both, the darkness of the brew on the first card looks fabulous and hiding it in a gatefold card gives the surprise factor-love it. The froth on the second card adds a bit of fun,great idea. Thanks for sharing.
