Hello {Purple Onion Designs}

Hi, there! I’m sharing a card that’s a little different for me today. I created a little landscape scene using three stamps from Purple Onion Designs: Chloe, Birch Tree Background and Bloom no. 2 Daisy. I did some masking and stamped my images using Extreme Black ink from My Favorite Things onto X-Press It blending card, which is what I pretty much always use for my Copic coloring. I love my X-Press It! I wanted a golden brown bunny and actually chose to color the shirt yellow. I don’t use yellow a lot in my cards, but thought it was the perfect summery color for this one. Summer solstice was yesterday, which means that even though we’re only three weeks into summer, the days are about to get shorter. I don’t want shorter days, I love it when the sun barely has time to set before rising again the next day.

I don’t make many landscape cards, and this one turned out to be a side fold card, which is even more rare for me. I love my top fold cards, but I’d already cut and scored this card base and figured I might as well use it and create a side fold card for once.

To reinforce the yellow shirt and the yellow on the flowers, I decided to add a yellow frame. I die cut the largest of the Stitched Rectangle Scallop Edge Frames dies from My Favorite Things out of Bright Buttercup card stock from Papertrey Ink and added three additional white die cut frames behind it for dimension.

In the space between the trees I had room for a fairly large hello, die cut using the Say Hello die from My Favorite Things. It’s really a speech bubble die, but I’d used everything but the word for a different card and had the stacked hello die cut in a bowl on my desk, ready to go. There’s a ton of dimension in this die cut, it’s six layers thick.
