Purple Onion Designs Spring Release Begins Today!

Welcome to a fresh spring collection illustrated by Stacey Yacula called "A Happy Little Place"!

There are so many wonderful scene building images and new characters in this release, and they work beautifully with past released images too! 

Today, Junie the bunny has swung open the upstairs window to smell the fresh spring air.  I cut the window out of the center, divided it down the middle, added some acetate, and had them switch sides in order to open it.  There is also a balcony in the collection for this window!

Junie runs the flower shop downstairs.  The upstairs and flower shop are two separate images so they can be easily mixed and matched. 

I hope you will stay tuned for many more cards in the near future featuring this incredible release!  Check out the Purple Onion Designs' Blog for more inspiration and links to other designers.

Junie, Flower Shop, Room with a View, Around the Town Sentiment Set

A Lawn Fawn Tiny Friend Group Chat with A Video

I hope you are feeling connected to those you love, but I'm sure there are times when we all miss those hugs!  The Tiny Friends stamp set from Lawn Fawn has a wonderful variety of characters.  They all decided to show up on this card from their various devices:

The background was stamped and then colored with Zig Clean Color Brush Markers.  The laptop is from Lawn Fawn's Pop-up Desk cut from their holographic 2.0 cardstock.
