Purple Onion New release.......






Hi guys!  I am sooo excited to visit with you today and share just one of the new stamp sets from Purple Onion Designs.    It is the new stamps created by Stacey Yacula's The Sweetest Day stamp collection.   Purple Onion started the peeks on Friday and they will be running till Monday. The stamps will be available to purchase on Tuesday 4/17. There are several guest designers joining the design team for this release.     I have listed all the blogs down below..so make sure to give them a visit!   
                   I will be doing a give-away of one of the stamp sets ...Sweet Offerings .. so make sure to leave a comment right here for a chance to win!   I will randomly draw a winner by Monday afternoon  and let Michele know over at Purple Onion. In addition,  she will be doing a giveaway of the stamps showcased each day.   HOW EXCITING!!!!!!!!
               Now onto my card.....I just fell in love with all the sweet images.  It is hard to pick just one.   Today I am sharing the sweet offerings so you can see my take on it .        I used a lot of paper layers and some subtle coloring with good ole pencils.   I like the softness of the pencils.    I manipulated the little branch a bit and made a "laurel wreath" of sorts to frame the birdy in.    Very simple and ohhhhh so whimsical.   My fave type of style......full of imagination!     Well that is it for me today.....come back tomorrow as well for a diffrent card and stamp set!   Make sure to visit some of the blogs below and see their creations using the new stamp sets.  Thanks to you all for visiting during the blgo hop as well!  It was a lot of fun!  hugs, cherry
