Purple Onion Designs | Bonjour!
Hi friends and welcome back! Today it's release day over at Purple Onion Desings!
There is a new collection, called "A Happy Little Place" designed by the incredible Stacey Yacula. If you haven't seen it yet, click here.
There are 21 illustrated stamps by Stacey Yacula and a big sentiment stamp, containing 15 phrases, that you can mix it up also with previous collections. There will be a discounted bundle price for the first 2 weeks. The complete "A Happy Little Place" collection plus the "Around the Town Sentiment Set" will be $105.00. This is a 30% savings on all the bundle.
I've worked out behind the scene to create many sample cards for the whole collection, and here I am with my first inspiration, that features the newest William, the bird with shopping bag.
When I first saw the release preview and the illustration of William, I instantly thought of a scene in Paris, because of his baguette and flat cap.
I haven't travelled a lot around the world, but Paris is my favorite place ever. I really love France, also because I have wonderful personal memories. I have been studying French for over 8 years at school, and I met a penfriend, Clara, who studied Italian. We still write each other when every few months and we met 4 times since the first time. Well, when I did this card, I thought to her wonderful city! And I will sent it to her of course!
And now, let's move to how I made it: I firstly stamped the previously released Bakery Background, masking the bakery script (I want it in French) and the roof, which was full of snow. I used Neenah Solar White Cardstock, the copic colors looks great on this paper. On a different piece, I also stamped William, using a black copic friendly ink. I then drew a simple roof and a small Tour Eiffel piece. The whole scene measures 3,5" x 5,5".
I colored everything with copics, using the combos written below. I also added the French BOULANGERIE - PATISSERIE script with a white gelly roll pen.
On a different piece of cardstock, I stamped a diagonal backgorund twice, one with red and shifted a bit with blue, in order to recreate the French colors. From this panel, I die cut a frame for my scene.
I added a small strip with the sentiment at the top and matted everything with a white panel.
I really hope you enjoyed my first card of the release and I cannot wait to show you all the others!
Hugs from Italy,
