Introducing Short Stacks!

I hope you’ve enjoyed our first two days of Power Poppy Sneak Peeks.  There’s just so much more fun in store, especially in today’s set, aptly called Short Stacks.  Think of all the pretty ecclectic little things you put together in a stack and throw in sweetness and you’ve got this adorable set!  Marcy is so good and creative at putting together little scenes of fun that make you smile.

Here is my little birthday stack of fun :)  It has a bit of an ephemera feel, when I saw the bracket theme in the designer paper I thought it would be fun to pull that into the card to make a statement.  Colouring is done with Copics in warm greys and reds.  To me a tulip can be any colour - but red really makes a happy statement, especially when paired with a red bow on a present.  

The bracket was cut on my Silhouette, and a little button and twine finish it off.  

The girls have lots of fun little collections to show off to sure to drop by and visit!
