This Little Bear is flying by to say “Happy Birthday”

Hi Everyone,

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.

This design starts by cutting three ‘cloud’ sections by using all the dies in the My Favorite Things Stitched Cloud Edges set. Then Scattered Straw and Worn Lipstick distress oxide ink were lightly blended onto the bottom of each cloud section and Tumbled Glass distress oxide ink was added to the top edges.

Next, I grabbed an A2 (5.5″ x 4″) Neenah white card panel and lightly colored the 5.5″ top with Tumbled Glass and then added ‘rays’ in one corner by blending Scattered Straw distress oxide ink using the Radiating Ray stencil by MFT.   The ‘clouds were layered with foam tape and adhered to the panel. Then, this whole panel was adhered to a slightly larger card base and set aside.

With the basic panel done, I stamped the T-Bird stamp, banner, and balloons, all by Purple Onion Designs onto a piece of Neenah white cardstock using Memento Black Tuxedo and jumped into colored them with Copic markers. Here are the colors I used:

Once all the pieces were colored, I fussy cut around each one and added foam tape to the back.

All that was left was to arranged and stick down the cut-out elements to the front panel and add a few star sequin.

And, there we have it. This little bear is ready to take flight!
