I am thrilled beyond measure to be guest designing for Purple Onion Designs for its latest release, “A Happy Little Place.” I absolutely adore the Onion’s products including the Stacey Yacula collections. Today, Purple Onion Designs released the new “A Happy Little Place,” a 21 stamp collection by Stacey Yacula. The company also released “The Around the Town Sentiment” set, too. The entire collection is available for $105.00 which is a 30% discount. This special bundle price is available through Friday, May 14, 2021. I will be designing several cards in May using the new release products.

My card today features the following images from the Happy Little Place collection:

The Around the Town Sentiment

My card measures 5″ X 7″ in size. I used Neenah 80lb cardstock for the card base and the front panel. I always stamp and color on a front panel and then attach it to the card base at the end so that any Copic bleeding is concealed and the inside of the card is nice and white. I used Copic Sketch markers to color the images and create the scene. Here’s a list of the colors I used:

  • Browns: E43, E44, E50, E51, E53, E55, E57, and E59 (cottage, roof, road, mouse, tree)
  • Greens: YG00, YG01, YG03, YG 61, YG63, YG67, YG91 and G09 (trees, bushes, grasses, flowers)
  • Reds: R14, R9 (flowers, laundry)
  • Yellows: Y2, Y26, Y21, Y19 (bike, flowers)
  • Warm Grays: W1 W3, W7, W9 (road, sidewalk to cottage, tree trunk)
  • Blues: BG0000, BG000, B00, B21, B45 (sky, laundry)

I stamped all of the images on the card front except for Ana and planned out a road to the front for Ana’s country ride on her bike. Then I got busy coloring… lots of coloring!

Ana on the bike was stamped on a separate piece of cardstock and fussy cut out. I attached her to the scene using Scrapbook Adhesives White Foam Squares to make her pop out of the scene a bit. Isn’t she the cutest?! I love her bike and just had to make it yellow, the color of my corvette. 🙂 I stamped the phrase from the The Around the Town Sentiment stamp set in the upper right corner and finished out my card with some clouds in the sky. I love how sweet this turned out. It’s such a sweet scene with these adorable images! Did I tell you how much I love Stacey’s illustration style?! There are sooo many fun elements to this collection. I will be sharing more cards soon using other elements from the collection. I can’t wait to share!
