Sneak Peeks Day 3: Short Stacks!

I don't know about you, but I love little vignettes that just share a slice of life -- no matter what it be. Maybe it's a glass of tea cozied up next to your favorite book? Maybe it's a crossword puzzle that's waiting to be solved beside your favorite pot of flowers? These images share snapshots in time and Power Poppy's newest stamp set captures these slices of life just so beautifully!


Oh my goodness? I just can't take how cute that little parakeet is perched up on those whimsically stacked teacups! This set -- Short Stacks -- offers three different and darling vignettes plus some fun-filled sentiments that are perfect for birthdays, cards that hope to deliver a little happiness or a note to a friend you'd love to catch up with! 

On to my creation!

When I first saw this image above, I had to laugh. When I was growing up, my mom adopted her late sister's parakeet "Butchie" -- this darling bird looked exactly like I colored this one up to be. He would do this little wiggle move with this head and make all of us laugh! This image brought back some fun little memories! 

On to the deets! I stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black and then started to color it up with my Copic markers using these: YG00, YG03, YG05, YG13, YG0000, B01, B04, G24, G21, G20, R81, R83, R85, W00, W01 and BG0000. You can't really see but there is a little sparkle from a Sakura sparkle gel pen at the center of the flower and along a portion of that bottom cup. The papers are a mix of BasicGrey (Lemonade) plus Echo Park Fine & Dandy. The sentiment from the set was stamped on a 1-1/4" punched circle and matted on a 1-3/8" punched circle.  Add a little Hug Snug White Ribbon and a little bling and... ta da! Done! 

And, here's a close up of that sweet 'lil birdie!  


And that, my friends, is it! I honestly can't wait to use every image in this set since they are all just so sweet! In the meantime, the Bloom Brigade has some fanciful creations they would LOVE to share! So, hop on over and see.....

Tomorrow's sneak is one that's big on impact! I honestly fell in love with the concept behind this set and think there will be so many fun ways to put this one to use. Swing back by tomorrow and you'll see what I mean! Have a fabulous day!
