Stacey Yacula's new 'A Beautiful Day!' stamp collection for Purple Onion Designs & a card

 Happy days!!! Today there is a wonderful release of 39 new Stacey Yacula stamps for sale at Purple Onion Designs! It's called 'A Beautiful Day!'.
I was lucky enough to be able to have a play with lots of them, and as ever, they are beautiful, ridiculously cute stamps...  Also, for a week only, there will be 30% off when you buy the complete set! I highly recommend going and having a look at them!

Here is one of the cards I came up with, using quite a few of the stamps...
I used the Lucy Label Pop Up die for the card base, which provided the large main pop out part, plus the little pop-up on top - perfect for animating the cut out stamped images. I used foam pads to make the characters stand out even more.

I stamped most the images with Memento Ink, which works great with Copics, and I used Staz-On ink to stamp the bubbles onto acetate sheet, which were then glued to the back of the bear. I also added some Stickles glitter glue to the bubbles, flask, bottles, cupcakes and flowers. (Aren't they all such CUTE stamps!!)
A few of the images I stamped onto patterned paper, and added some white details to (like the large spots on the red bunting flags) with Signo White Uni-ball pen.
The flask and tray were stuck on with folded over pieces of card stock, so they can fold down flat.

The clouds were cut with dies from Elizabeth Craft Design's All-Season Tree set.
You can see some of the layers better in this picture:
Stay tuned for more cards using the new Stacy Yacula Collection on my blog over the next few days, plus check out the Purple Onion Designs blog for some great inspiration from the rest of the Design Team.
