Jolly & Midnight

Happy Friday, my friends! =) It's sneak peek time over at Purple Onion Designs! The super cute brand new collection by Stacey Yacula is called Sweet Occasions and it will be available starting Monday, May 25! There are also some awesome giveaways with today's peeks, but more on that later. =)

The new collection is great for all the holidays around the year and my first card showcases the delightful Jolly!

He is stamped on Papertrey Ink's Stamper's Select White cardstock with Antique Linen Distress Ink and colored with Copic markers.  This guy makes me happy! I just adore his big grin! =)

I kept the card simple with camouflaged sentiment to keep Jolly in focus. The sentiment die is from Lawn Fawn.

I couldn't resist a cute kitty stamp and I had to color up Midnight for my second card.

She and her little pumpkin buddy is stamped on PTI's Rustic White cardstock with Antique Linen Distress Ink and colored with Copic makers. I have to say that Stacey's pumpkins are magical! =)

Another simple finish for the card. The sentiment die is from Paper Smooches.

That's all for now. Both Michele and Stacey are each giving away an ENTIRE set of the Sweet Occasions collection! Go to their blogs (linked above) to find out how you can win them! Some of the design team members from today's sneak peek are having smaller giveaways, too! You can find their links over at Purple Onion Designs Blog.

If you leave me a comment here, you will have a chance to win Jolly, Midnight and Ginger (you can find samples with Ginger over at Purple Onion Designs Blog)! You have until Midnight on Sunday, May 24 to enter for a chance to win! Have fun and good luck! =)

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Your cards are gorgeous! These new stamps are gorgeous! And your coloring is Amazing!!!
Debcop said…
OMGoodness!!! This is one of the best card ideas I've ever seen. I absolutely love the technique of camoflaging the die. And, only you would have thought to include it on a stamped image, instead of just using a inked background. Just wonderful!! I'm going to use this technique. But, since I can't afford to buy copics, and my coloring is no where near yours, I can only hope to get mine to look half as good. Thanks for the inspiration. And, if you ever want to get rid of this card....I'm available. :-) thank you!!
