Purple Onion Designs: Robin

Hi there crafty peeps. Today I have another sweet card to share as we continue celebrating the new A Beautiful Day releases by Stacey Yacula Studio for Purple Onion Designs.

With this releases there are 39 stamps total being released (which for a limited time only you can purchase the whole collection at 30% off). 

Here's my card using Blossoming Perch, Robin (flying bird) and A Beautiful Day! sentiment. Seriously, this releases is filled with so much cuteness & sweetness.

To make the bird looks like it's sitting down on the branch, I simply cut the tail apart and glue it right under the branch and popped the top part of the bird with pop-dots. I also popped some of the blooms for added interest.

Oh... and the enamel dots.... I finally get on the train of DIY enamel dots by melting some crafty beads. The only down fall so far is I can only get 1 size beads. I probably could get a smaller pop dots if only I could figure out how to cut the beads in half neatly without cutting my own finger, which I haven't been able to.

Check out Purple Onion Designs blog for more projects using the new stamps. Thanks so much for swinging by here.

Thanks so much for joining everyone for the release!

Great idea about the bird sitting on the branch. I like when tips like that are shared because we don't always pick up on the wonderful little details.
