Masculine Short Stacks with Sassy Succulents ~ Power Poppy


Hello again!!  How has your week been?  My heart goes out to those suffering from flooding, or hurricane threats.  And the fires...well, we're getting the smoke from some, but we're not in any risk other than suffering from allergies because of the poor air quality.  So, I'm counting my blessings, and praying for those who are suffering right now.

I do have a masculine card to share with you today, that I created by combining two different Power Poppy Clear stamp sets:  Short Stacks and Sassy Succulents.  

I needed a masculine card for my dad's birthday, and I love the packages from the Short Stack set.  I didn't want to make him a card with tulips and a cupcake though, so I thought, why not add a couple of succulents.  So, I got out my Misti, put the clear stamp in it and taped off the tulips and cupcakes with repositionable tape.  I inked everything up, removed the tape and stamped the image onto some X-Press It cardstock. I have just two packages.  I was able to easily line up the two different succulent pots from the Sassy Succulent set and the end result is what you see above.

I thought the latest Hues to Use it colors were perfect for a masculine card, so I worked with those colors and used some perfect dp from Simple Stories to highlight it.

That's it for my project today.  Be sure to check out what the following Bloom Brigaders have to share though...they are always fabulous at inspiring creativity!!
