I’m so excited to be part of Purple Onion Designs release today! I just adore the images that Stacey Yacula illustrates! I have had Purple Onion Designs stamps for a long time, but they haven’t gotten any love for a while. For this release, I got to play with some of their new images and I had a TON of fun! I have a few cards to share with you, I hope you enjoy them!
Celebrate it’s your birthday!
For this card, I colored up these adorable fairies with Copic markers, adding some details with a white gel pen and prisma glitter. Both of them are fussy cut-out, which is something I actually enjoy doing!
I stamped the stars in the background and layered the fairies over them. Tip: since the fairy wand is so tiny, I stamped her directly on the background and then adhered her and her tiny star wand topper over the stamped image- leaving the stick of her wand already on the background.
I stamped “celebrate it’s your birthday” and then using a quickie glue pen I glittered the whole sentiment. I love the detail you can get with a quickie glue pen!
Layered on some rainbow papers, I just love how cheery this card is!
Have a magical birthday!
A time saver tip: I colored all 4 fairies at the same time, with the same Copics. Then I just designed different cards for each! For this card I ink blended some Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide ink, then stamped the stars and sentiment. Adhering the fairies over the background.
Sitting here thinking of you
I think Stacey’s critters are just so very sweet! Love them! This little bunny swinging is so fun! For this card, I stamped the branch, and bunny on a swing directly onto the background. I colored them in with Copic markers. The owl was stamped and colored on another piece of cardstock. I fussy cut him out. I then placed a mask on the branch and swinging bunny. I ink blended over them with Distress Oxide Inks ( Twisted Citron, Peacock Feathers).
Since my ink blending was such an intense color, once I peeled the mask away I could see a white outline in places, so I just went over it with a W2 Copic marker, I think that was a nice fix, and I didn’t have to toss all my hard work!
I used some Lawn Fawn stitched borders on the background panel. I used some 3M foam tape to pop up the owl. Then stamped the sentiment.
You are tough
I think this one is my favorite… well because – watercolor 😉 I started by stamping the branch and swinging bunny onto some Distress Watercolor Cardstock on the smooth side. I then watercolored the background with Distress Inks (Tumbled Glass, Mermaid Lagoon). I stamped the bunny, the baby owl, and next on a separate piece of cardstock. I colored them in and fussy cut them out and added some white gel pen details to their cheeks. I colored in the branch and swing directly onto the card background. Then I layered my fussy cut out images onto the card, and stamped the sentiment.
Thank you so much for stopping by today 🙂
