Purple Onion - DT announcement & card share

Happy Saturday crafty friends!  
I have a bit of happy news to reveal today... I've joined the Purple Onion design team! 

I have always admired Stacey Yacula's completely adorable and whimsical illustrations.  Purple Onion Designs is a fabulous source for high quality red rubber stamps featuring so many of Stacey's cute critters.  Naturally I'm thrilled to have this opportunity to be creating with them.  

So to celebrate, I have a springy scene card to share.

From the first moment I saw the Blossoming Perch stamp, I knew exactly what I wanted to do.... make a frame with it.  
It was easy enough to do!  Just simply stamp four times, color, and fussy cut.  Each branch is slightly overlapping in the corners to form a square shape which I think frames up my little scene nicely.  

Other Purple Onion stamps used:

The brach frame measures approximately 4.25 inches square.  I added it to a die cut scalloped frame that was just a tad bigger but you certainly could just use the branch frame by itself.  My card base is 5x5 inches which leaves a nice border around the outside.  


  1. Beautiful card! Your coloring is amazing! The frame is such a creative idea, and it turned out simply gorgeous. Very creative!

  2. And congrats on being on the DT! That's super awesome and exciting!

  3. So beautiful and creative. May I ask who makes the scalloped die you used?

    1. Thank you! The scalloped square die is from Honey Bee Stamps. And then I used a plain square die to cut out the middle to create a frame.

  4. Leanne, this is so sweet! I love the idea of cutting the branch 4 x's and creating a frame with it. It really sets the scene. I adore this!
