Oh happy day and a giveaway!

Hello!  As promised, today I'm sharing a card I created with the new line of Stacey Yacula stamps from Purple Onion Designs.  This beauty is called "Sunny Blooms". 

If you'd like to win your very own Sunny Blooms stamp, just leave a comment on this post by noon EST tomorrow (April 16th) and I'll draw a random winner and post it Monday evening.



I created the background for this card by stamping the kraft cardstock with the Swiss Dot backgrounder and heat embossing with some bright white WOW! embossing powder.  If you look closely you can also see that I "distressed" the edges of the card with some Versamark ink and then dipped them into some more powder and heat embossed again.  For the main image panel I stamped the image and sentiment in the white embossing powder and then coloured the image with some Copics.

Check out the other designers who are previewing the new stamps today (you just never know who has stamps to give away (hint hint!!):
