Here is another card design showing off the T-bird stamp, a cute little bear flying a plane with a birthday banner trailing behind to help you get acquainted with Purple Onion Designs. This card was created for a small four-year-old but really, it is sweet for any age.
You probably know that Stacey Yacula from Purple Onion Designs creates the most adorable little creatures and scenes. This is just one reason why we are so excited to have Purple Onion join our illustrious list of stamp and die creators. They are a perfect compliment to the other critters available in our shop.

I started writing this post and found the explanation was getting too wordy, so… the next best thing I could think of was to create a video to explain all the ins and outs. You can view it below or on our YouTube channel.
The two card designs were made using the Brilliant Blooms stamp and die set by My Favorite Things. I have used this set before (click here to check it out) and was impressed by the versatility and beauty of the simple blossoms so decided to give it another look.
In these cards, I created a background by stamping and embossing the flowers, cut out the center and add a gracious sentiment from the Paper Artsy Eclectica3 stamp set. The left-over cut-out center was then used to create the second card.
Take a look at the video of the two different card design styles and colors.
