oh happy day!

Today is the day! Stacey Yacula's The Sweetest Day! stamps are now being sold here in the Purple Onion Designs store! To celebrate, I'm sharing a card with the toadstool and Tucker the snail.


I wanted to give my Copics a break and try some watercoloring, so I grabbed a bunch of Memento Dew Drop pads and used an acrylic block as my palette. I used my waterpens and with a few swishes, the images were colored.


I stamped the sentiment using a Stamp-a-Ma-Jig for perfect placement. The stamped piece was trimmed and mounted on a larger card base, and tied with some sheer brown ribbon. Doesn't Tucker look happy on that toadstool?

Be sure to visit Michele's blog to see if you were one of the giveaway winners, and for even more inspiration using Stacey's stamps.

I hope you've enjoyed the previews of The Sweetest Day! and I'm sure you'll enjoy using Stacey's whimsical designs on your cards and layouts. Happy shopping!
