Power Poppy Sneaks: O Hoppy Day!


Hello all! Have you been following all the action over at Power Poppy Central HERE? Well, if not, you need to play a little catch up! Yesterday, Ms. Marcella kicked off the sneaks to a brand new fall-themed clear stamp collection honoring those Natural Wonders!  Today marks day 2 of the sneaky peeks!

The set being shown off today, I tell you, is right up my alley!


This stamp set pays homage to the beer lovers in your life and I have to say I have a few. Montana is the land of hops, wheat and barley -- literally -- and so naturally, we are craft beer lovers at heart. You have to support the farmer down the road raising the hops and barley, don't you? I mean, it would be a shame not to! ;-) O Hoppy Day features so many fun accents. Of course, it has that beautiful sprig of hops with barley intertwined but it also has a vignette of a full pint glass - just waiting to be savored. Make it a pilsner? A stout? Or a red ale? You choose! There's also a darling little bottle cap that you can deck out with a handful of different sentiments. Oh, I just love it!

On to my creation!


I started by stamping the large image of hops and barley all over my kraft colored background panel using Memento Peanut Brittle ink. After that, I stamped the pint image in Memento Rich Cocoa ink and took my Copic markers and went to town coloring!

I decided to make my beer a pilsner and loved grabbing a few shades of yellow and when I was done, added a few light grey shades and BV000 to color the glass. When I was done coloring, you can see that I had a little fun with my white gel pen adding bubbles. :-)


The sentiment I added is a mix -- I stamped the bottle cap and then that darling "cheers mate" sentiment. I accented with white gel pen and then stamped another coordinating sentiment with Versamark and then heat embossed with a white detail powder and.. ta da! Just a sweet and simple card for one of the many beer lovers in my life!

And that, my friends, is it!


The Bloomies are holding up their glasses to raise a toast to this set as well! So, you'll want to hop on over and see what they're serving up!


Julie Koerber >> you are here! 


I have to say you're going to want to stay tuned! Tomorrow's set is just such a beauty for fall and might be my favorite of this clear release! So, if that doesn't make you want to swing back by, I am not sure what will! ;-)

Have a wonderful day and I'll see you back here soon!

Craft beer is all the rage... here in Michigan as well. My sister's man friend is a grower and this would be a perfect card for him. I never realized how pretty hops are. Love your color choices. Nicely done.
