AL handmade - Purple Onion Designs - Thinking of you with April and Gracie - Spread Kindness collection

Hi there and welcome back!
Today I’m sharing a new card highlighting some the new stamps from Stacey Yacula’s Spread Kindness collection available at Purple Onion Designs. In case you missed it, this new release mixes adorable critters with floral and larger sized traditional images, creating the perfect recipe for every crafter’s happiness :)

As you may know, I’m a big fan of Stacey’s cute critters: they’re so fun to color and allow me to create cards with cute “visual narratives”. For this project I used a couple of them: April, a cheerful bunny on a swing, and Gracie, the sweetest bird ever seen resting on a Blossoming Perch.

I started to work on this card by stamping the cute images and the background panel with Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored them with Copic Markers. When my coloring was complete, I ink blended some Cracked Pistachio Distress ink over the Cloud Stancil by My Favorite Things to create a spring sky on my background panel.

Then, I fussy cut the critters and the perch and die-cut a scalloped frame out of white cardstock using the Framed Tags – Madison Creative Cuts by Mama Elephant.
I foam mounted the frame over my background panel adding a vellum layer between them to soften the background.

I heat embossed the sentiment from the Essential Thoughts Sentiment Set in white on a strip of yellow cardstock – because I wanted to keep all the elements colorful and bright to suit the overall mood of the scene.
Then, I added all the images inside the frame and mounted it onto a regular sized card base.

Finally, I added some sparkling clear sequins here and there as embellishment.
