Hello friends! Today's the big day... Purple Onion's newest release
designed by Stacey Yacula is now available for purchase.
This release is so fantastic!! The theme of this collection is based off of a good ole fashioned country fair.
If you are like me and have full set syndrome there's a bundle deal at a special price through May 15th:
All 24 stamps (30 individual images) for $108. That's 30% off!
I've made three cards to share using these fun new stamps so without further ado...
First up is a tri-fold card. This card is A6 size. I've stamped the Roller Coaster image onto the left side of the card front. I then fussy cut around the entire image. I used a craft knife to cut out the trapped space so the scene behind would be visible. Essentially the roller coaster image is hinged on the left side and opens to reveal the Fairgrounds which is one layer and entirely colored with Copics.
The fairgrounds panel opens to reveal one final scene on the inside of the card - Pinky the pig enjoying some cotton candy. I stamped the Spring Fence directly onto the inside panel and Copic colored along with some grass and a faint blue sky. I fussy cut Pinky and three of the new Carnival/Fair Blurbs, then added with low profile foam squares.
This next card features some of the farm themed images in the collection. Clarabelle has won 1st prize at the fair. Dolly is presenting her with it. To set the scene, I used the large Cornfields image (stamped twice and fussy cut).
The 3 Chicks - Flo, Mo, & Bo - have also joined for the ribbon ceremony. The little stool that Dolly is standing on is from the previously released Milk Set. For the sentiment I've stamped "You're the Best" from the new Everyday Blurb set.
This last card is a longer scene. The card measures 9 inches long by 4 inches tall. I wanted to create a scene with all the animals lined up waiting to get a ticket into the fair. For the background of this scene, I stamped the Fairgrounds image fully on the right half and then partially (the tents) on the left half. I used the Fair Booth image which has a blank sign on it. I simply wrote "tickets" with a white gel pen on the sign.
Manning the ticket booth is Oliver. Oliver is from a previously released collection and is illustrated to be holding something so I drew and fussy cut a ticket for him to hold. Lined up and waiting to get into the fair are Billy the goat, Misty the horse, Wooley the lamb, and two little chicks. I finished off the scene with two speech bubbles from the Carnival/Fair Blurb set.
Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you'll check out all the new stamps from the Sunny Meadow Fair Collection in the Purple Onion shop. Have a fair-tasic day! :)
