Magical Monday: Walter, Mary, and Holly


It’s time for another Magical Monday! Bet you thought I might not be showing you the love since it’s vacation week, eh? Well I couldn’t RESIST sharing these little guys with you. Oh my GOSh so cute. Two are brand new from Purple Onion, and Holly is from last year…but Walter the Penguin just melts my little heart!

In the no-chatter video below, you’ll see the process, including the sweet little background that makes Mary and Holly look like they’re taking off. The sentiment, by the way, was inked with both colors before stamping; then I used THIS to make it all line up just perfectly so Walter would sit properly on the “Merry.” (These aren’t clear stamps, so you need a tool to do any tight lining-up work.) If you can’t see the video below, click HERE to watch it directly on  YouTube.

Hope you check out the new release of Stacey Yacula’s stamps over at Purple Onion. And don’t miss her whole collection – there are some DARLING must-haves!

  1. I’m going back through your videos to see what I missed in the busy holiday season. Love your background. I never would have thought to do it that way but the movement the dots provide for the bird is particularly great. I love this artist’s stamps. I may have to buy most of them!

  11. I just dropped a hefty chunk of change at POD for cyber Monday — Stacey’s designs are the cutest!! I’m with you, Walter the penguin is adorable.

  12. They are adorable! What cardstock do you use? I’ve noticed that on some cardstock I have, the Copics don’t blend as nicely as they do on others, and I was wondering if there’s a certain cardstock that will give me the best results. Thanks, Sandy.
