A new Stacey Yacula stamp release from Purple Onion Designs

Good afternoon,

I have great news to those of you who love Stacey Yacula's stamps from Purple Onion Designs. This next Monday, the 25th of May, Purple Onion is releasing a new collection of stamps by her. The new collection will cover almost every holiday, special occasion and celebration throughout the year.  The collection consists of 25 images and a sentiment set with 20 different sentiments. The newest collection is called Sweet Occasions.

I had been lucky enough to be part of the celebration of this new release and I got to play with a few of the stamps already. Michele, is showing examples what the DT made and mine is also their among those absolutely amazing ladies. SO head over to Purple Onion Designs blog to see the DT creations. When you're over there, please leave a comment and be eligible to win the entire new collection of stamps. Isn't it amazing!?! Also, Stacey Yacula, is giving away a collection of stamps and there are also smaller giveaways on some of the DT's blogs. Make sure you check them out!! 

Here is my card for today:

Instructions: I just thought this adorable image, called Daisy, is perfect for a new baby card. I stamped the image with black pigment ink and then drew the little scene with my pencil. Then I watercolored the images with my watercolour set. After it had completely dried, I drew black lines over my watercolored background with a alcohol marker. I die cut the tag and an extra tag out of some white fun foam. I adhered those two together. I stamped the sentiment using Stamp-A-Magij from the Sweet occasions sentiment set with black pigment ink. I added a bow made from white paper string and adhered the watercoloured panel to a my card base, to where I had adhered those little stripes of designer's paper.

I like how this card came together and I had tons of fun making that background. I hope you got a little inspiration and try to draw your own background. It is so much fun!! I am so keen on doing that at the moment, that I really should focus myself trying to do some other things too. LOL. Next I have little sneak for you, remember to come back on Monday to see the entire collection of stamps and this card with this little fella sitting in a tree.
