Short Stacks!


Hello Everyone!!  Are you  ready for some fun inspiration?!!  Today the Power Poppy Bloom Brigade have some fabby stacked things to show you!!  Whether it be cups, books, plants or a mixture of interesting odds and ends, you're bound to find something you love!  Introducing.....Short Stacks!

 Normally I am not a 'bird' type of girl, but I have to admit to a little squeal of delight to see this cute little budgie type birdie!  Budgerigar's are a small seed-eating parrot that are native to Australia, so you can understand the excitement!  :)

I've used a base of white and layered with blue cut with Spellbinders Majestic Labels 25 and attached a piece of pink ribbon around it.  Next I've cut a piece of green with Labels 25 and topped it with more blue cut with the same sized die from Majestic Labels 25.  I've stamped the cups stack and sentiment from Short Stacks in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics.  (There were quite a lot and I forgot to take note of them all sorry!  The Budgie is Y11, Y15, YG11 and YG13.)  I've cut this with the next size die from Labels 25 and attached as shown.  To finish I've added a bow to the ribbon.

Stamps - Short Stacks (Power Poppy)
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Marina Mist, Old Olive, White
Accessories - Copics, Spellbinders Labels 25 and Majestic Labels 25, Pink Ribbon, Bow Easy.

The Bloomies has some fun and fabby inspiration, so don't miss a thing and pop by and say HI!
Hope you are enjoying the Power Poppy release this week and there is still more to come!!  Thanks for visiting and hope you are inspired to stamp!  :)

So perky Ms. Kathy! Love that bold blue with the pops of different colors just to make you say, "Ahhhh!" I had to laugh, I had no idea these little guys were wild in your neck of the woods! The things you learn! :-)

I love the color of your bird. It is perfectly colored. This die is at the top of my wish list. Great job.

This is just Beautiful... how big do you make your cards... I've noticed that the Spellbinder dies are sized 4x6 or so on the front.. so your card must be at least that big... then my next question is envelops...?
