Introducing… Short Stacks!

It’s Day 3 of the Power Poppy February release and the Bloom Brigade has sprung to action today to introduce you to… “Short Stacks”!

This super cute stamp set is all about that balancing act we all ascertain in life!  It’s chalked full with all kinds of stacked items that you’re gunna love.  Isn't that little Budgy bird adorable?!?

I wanted my stackable image and sentiment to shine from the “Short Stacks” stamp set so I kept my card relatively simple today.  I pulled all of the colours I used right from the sweet floral paper.

I added some quick Sakura Glaze to the tiny hearts on the cupcake and also to the teal edges of the ribbon on the kraft wrapped present and the “gems” embedded in the pottery vase.

Now… off you go on a little stackable inspired hop through all of the Bloom Brigade blogs...

You never cease to amaze me Ally how you can call something "simple" and yet no detail is left undone in any of your creations! From the stitched edges to the glazed accents to the fabulous die cut peeking out from behind your image! Another WOW card Ms. Ally!

Oh Ally!! I love the bright, cheery colors!! Turquoise is one of my faves, and it just makes this card sing. Of course your coloring always sings too! Love every little detail!

Oh, Ally, I love your colors! The DP and the turquoise are perfect together (with a touch of purple I see, too...hehe!). Beautifully colored and wonderful layout, and I love the glimmer and the pearls on the flower pitcher! Must be even more stunning IRL! Thanks for the inspiration...I am so excited about this one with these darling images! Hugs, sweet friend!

Your card is so sweet! I love the pretty blue lacy die. The little touches of glaze on the hearts is the perfect little bit of shimmer to set it off. Love your design! :)
