New Sunny Meadow Fair Collection by Stacey Yacula {Purple Onion Designs}

The brand new Sunny Meadows Fair collection by Stacey Yacula for Purple Onion Designs is available for purchase now. The complete collection consists of 24 stamps (30 individual images) and will be $108.00 until Wednesday, May 15, 2019. This represents a savings of 30%. As always, you may order individually as well but if you want it all, then now is the best time to order. 

I stamped the new Wooley (lamb), the new chick from the Flo, Mo and Bo set and the butterfly from the previously released Net, Butterfly and Bee set onto Copics X-Press It cardstock, colored with Copic markers, then fussy cut out. I cut a large tag from white cardstock, then sponged some clouds for the background and added "grass" from patterned paper. The three images were attached to it using foam tape. I cut two more tags from patterned paper, stamping the sentiment from the Helen's Hand Everyday Sentiments set onto the smaller tag using green ink. This set is on sale and is really cute! The tags were tied together with gingham ribbon, fanned out then attached to the card front.

Products: Purple Onion Designs stamps, Lawn Fawn and PTI dp, PTI cs, Doodlebug enamel dots, May Arts ribbon, Paper Smooches, Reverse Confetti and Simon Says dies, Altenew and PTI ink, Copic Markers

{Reminder} TCP Tuesday #356 Challenge

Today I am sharing my second card for the April TCP Tuesday Spring challenge. We are about halfway through the month so you have plenty of time to submit your project. There is a $50 gift voucher to the TCP store in play!

I used the Round Flower Duo die to create a shaker backing with patterned paper and filling with the sweet new Confetti Mix. I stamped the sentiment from the At Your Service set onto a light gray cardstock piece using Versamark ink and then white heat embossed it. Simple and fun to create.

Products: The Cat's Pajamas stamps and dies, Lawn Fawn dp, PTI cs, The Cat's Pajamas sequin mix, Versamark ink

O Taste and See

O taste and see that the Lord is good. - Psalm 34:8

The Psalm is a Verve stamp which to my sorrow is now closed. I stamped it with new leaf ink onto a tag shape cut from Neenah cardstock using a die from The Cat's Pajamas Holiday Window Duo CutUps. After adding a patterned paper border at the bottom, I attached a coffee cup with a layer of craft foam which was cut from patterned paper and cardstock using dies from The Cat's Pajamas Cups Duo CutUps. I cut another tag using the same die from patterned paper and tied together with 1/4 inch yellow gingham ribbon. The tag set was then placed onto a card front using a layer of craft foam. I am submitting this to the current Tag You're It! #84 Challenge.

Products: Verve stamp, The Cat's Pajamas dies, Lawn Fawn dp, PTI cs, May Arts ribbon, PTI ink

Have a blessed day!

The Cat's Pajamas April TCP Tuesday #356 Challenge

The April TCP Challenge is Spring. Despite the pollen it really is a beautiful and wonderful season.

I stamped the fox image from the new For Fox Sake using black ink onto Arches cold pressed watercolor cardstock, stamped again with Versamark, clear heat embossed, then watercolored. I am definitely not great at watercoloring but the Arches paper does make it easier with minimal buckling although I was very generous with the water. My only complaint is that it is not pure white. The sentiment is from the new Year of the Pig set.

Products: The Cat's Pajamas stamps, Arches watercolor cs, MFT and Versamark ink, Avery Elle, Daniel Smith and Zig Kuretake Clean Color Real Brush watercolors
Watercolors: Fox-AE Liquid Fizz, Zigs 072 Beige and 028 Pale Pink; Bird-DS Hansa Yellow Light; Sky-AE Liquid Aquamarine; Grass-AE Liquid Celery

Here are the details for the Challenge:
  • Each month a new challenge will be posted on The Cat’s Pajamas blog and our Facebook page.
  • If you want to play along you just upload your design to The Cat’s Pajamas blog page using the InLinkz button provided.
  • You are not required to use a Cat’s Pajamas stamp or die but if you have them we would love to see them.
  • On the day of the next challenge the winner will be chosen from the previous challenge and will receive a Cat Cash Voucher for $50.
