If you are a Stacey Yacula fan like I am, you will love this new stamp collection offered at Purple Onion Designs. It’s called “A Happy Little Place” and it is filled with the sweetest images you can imagine. I love all her collections, but this one gives you the feel of a quaint town in the countryside of an English landscape. Today, I created a market stand scene. I used the following images from the collection:

Produce Stand

Alice (Squirrel carrying basket)

Jane (Fox with Apron)

Fruit Crates 

Around the Town Sentiment Set

My card measure 5″ X 7″ and I used 80lb Neenah Solar White cardstock for the front panel design and the card base.

I started by stamping my images. For this card, I had stamped the images on a separate sheet of cardstock, colored them and fussy cut them out to avoid masking. If you hate fussy cutting, masking is your best option to create your scene.

I colored the images in and placed them in the scene. I used the following colors:

  • Produce stand: C9, C7, C5, C3, C1, E59, E57, E55, E43
  • Fruit/Veggies:  R29, R14, YG17, YG67, YG03, YG00, Y21, YR30, W1
  • Crates: E59, E57, E55, E43
  • Squirrel: E44, E43, E42, E40, R000, white gel pen
  • Foxes: E18, E15, E13, W0, E40
  •  Fox aprons: B45, B41, B21, YG63, YG61, R29, R14
  • Scale: R89, R29, R14, C3, C1, YG03 YG00
  • Grass: YG67, YG63, YG61, YG03, YG00
  • Sky/Clouds: B00, BG0000, BG000

Once everything was in order, I shaded around the images to create shadows. I also ended up popping up the market stand striped canvas and the squirrel for more dimension. I also stamped the phrase in the upper left corner in black. This card could be used for all sorts of occasions.
