Warmest Wishes

Hello everyone! There are only a few days left to catch the big sale at Purple Onion Designs! Through Friday, December 13 save 25% off all rubber stamps! There are sooo many sweet images and lovely sentiments, I had a hard time choosing myself!

Purple Onion Design Birch and Sweetest Season sentiment

My card today features sweet Birch (Winter Bunny) and a sentiment from Sweetest Season.

Copic markers – G29, R0000, R000, R00, R01, W00, W1, W2, W3, W4, YG63, YG67

I die-cut a strip of Post It Tape using Paper Smooches’ Borders 1 die then used that as a mask to blend the background with Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink. Birch was stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card, carefully cut out and adhered with clear foam squares behind his head and ears. His body is adhered directly to the card front.  I stamped the sweet sentiment then added a sprinkling of tiny snowflakes. (He’s so cute!!)

Remember to grab a clear mount stamp while shopping as the rubber stamps are unmounted and the clear mount stamp is a total game changer. It can even be used with a Misti. That’s what I did! 🙂

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I ‘believe’ the sale is still happening at Purple Onion Designs

Hello everyone! Today I’m sharing a card and tag/gift card holder I created using Purple Onion DesignsEmmett & Emerson gnomes along with Snowy Trees.  Reminder:  All rubber stamps on sale 25% off through December 13!

Purple Onion Designs Emmett & Emerson, Snowy Trees

I adore these little guys, especially the hopping one! So cute! Along with the gnomes, I added the cutest little Candy Toppings from Queen & Company. They are perfect as tiny additions to a card or scrapbook page as well as an excellent shaker card ingredient! The candies come in Tic Tac type containers, a collection of eight colors. They’re adorable.

Copic markers – BG10, BG70, BG96, BG99, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E31, E33, E35, E37, E40, E41, E42, E47, G46, R24, R29, R89, W00, W1, W2, W3; Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen

I stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card, colored with Copic markers (listed above) and then cut out Emmett & Emerson. The sentiment was stamped from A Beautiful Day then cut into a little banner shape. Gnomes and sign were popped up on clear foam squares and completed panel was stitched to a block of Pebbles Merry Little Christmas patterned paper. I also added dots of snow using a Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen.

When I stamped the gnomes for my card, I stamped a few extra so I decided to also create a little tag on a gift card holder.

Copic markers – BG96, BG99, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, G46, R24, R29, R89, W00, W1, W2, W3

I used Paper Smooches’ To From Tag, a stitched rectangle and snowflakes from Taylored Expressions, as well as a sentiment from Purple Onion Designs’ A Beautiful Day. Cute patterned paper is from Doodlebug Design’s Here Comes Santa Claus. I used X-Press It’s super sticky 1/8″ double-sided tape to hold the gift card closed.

ALL Purple Onion Designs rubber stamps are on sale at 25% through December 13!  While shopping, be sure to grab a Clear Mounting Block as the rubber stamps are unmounted and the clear block makes stamping sooo easy, even with a MISTI. It’s reusable and with proper care can last a lifetime!  It’s ingenious.  🙂

Silhouette Holiday Greetings

Hi everyone! I’m popping in today to share two more cards using Purple Onion Designs‘ latest release by new artist Julian Charlton.  The new Silhouettes line includes multiple images from which to pick and choose to create any number of scenes.  When browsing, keep in mind that through December 13, ALL rubber stamps are 25% off!  🙂 You may want to consider grabbing a clear stamp as well since the rubber stamps are unmounted. It’s the perfect solution for using unmounted stamps over and over again without adhering foam to each stamp. I highly recommend!

Purple Onion Designs Julian Charlton Silhouettes

On both cards, I created a softly blended sky background using Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink. I blended onto X-Press It Blending Card which I normally use for Copic coloring. I used it here because I love the bright white of the paper, and it is incredibly smooth which makes it perfect for blending inks as well as Copic coloring.

Side note:  ALL products from X-Press It (Blending Card, foam tape, double sided tape, decorative tape, etc.) are 20% off through the end of today, 12/1/19, 11:59 p.m. PST. (Discount applied at checkout.)

On the card above, I used Twin Trees, Frederick (fox) and the reindeer and banner from Santa’s On the Way. Paper Smooches Borders 1 die created a little snowy hill, and I used my Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen to create lightly falling snow. A red rhinestone was added as a shiny red nose.

Copic markers – RV32, YG05

Here, I fussy-cut all  images then adhered to the blended background/snow border using clear foam squares behind the front tree, gift held by Cocoa, the Seasons Greetings banner and Toby‘s head. A pink Queen & Company star tops the foremost tree.

You can find the latest from Purple Onion Designs HERE25% off through 12/13.  Thanks for visiting today!

Purple Onion Black Friday Sale, Guest Designer Spot and new Artist!

Hello everyone! I’m excited to be designing as guest for Purple Onion Designs over the next two weeks and have a few items to share.  🙂  First, there is an amazing sale going on right now.

All rubber stamps, including new releases, are available at 25% off through December 13! Purple Onion images are so very sweet. I’ve adored them for so long. There’s a new artist in the store too. You’ll see below.  🙂

Purple Onion Designs Birch, Snowy Trees, Sweetest Season Sentiment

First I’ve used Stacey Yacula’s winter bunny Birch. I love him so!  I also used Snowy Trees and a Sweetest Season sentiment.

After fussy-cutting the images, I adhered over Doodlebug Design’s Milk and Cookies paper then strung several 6mm jingle bells between Birch’s hands.

Purple Onion Designs Happy Winter Forest Friends

Next I used new Happy Winter Forest Friends stamp set by new artist Julian Charlton.

He’s framed in a stitched border circle with three small Doodlebug Design enamel hearts.

I stamped all images using the 4×6 clear mount stamp and my MISTI. It’s the perfect solution for using unmounted rubber stamps.

Thanks so much for stopping by on this busy Black Friday! Enjoy your day!

Seasons Greetings

Hi everyone!  I thought I’d take a quick moment to pop in and share a card I finally finished.  Actually, with everything going on, it took me days to color, but I  managed to get it all together this morning.

Isn’t this Santa from Purple Onion CUTE?!  I just love him.  I used a sentiment from Paper Smooches’ Swanky Snowdudes, My Favorite Things Wild Cherry cardstock and X-Press It Blending Card.  Along the left side of the image panel, I used MFT’s Simply Scallops Die-namics.

Although red is a bit challenging for me, I had fun coloring this little guy (using Copics, as always).  🙂

I have one last holiday card to share so I’ll be back tomorrow with that.  Just in case you don’t return before Tuesday, MERRY CHRISTMAS!  ♥

Stamps:  Purple Onion Santa   Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black  Paper:   My Favorite Things Wild Cherry, X-Press It Blending Card, Echo Park Very Merry Christmas (6×6) Accessories: Copic markers (E00, E11, R20, E40, E41, E42, E43, W00, W1, R35, R37, R39, E39, E33, E35, YR21, YG17, BG70), MFT Simply Scallops Die-namics, Maya Road Crystal Star Pins, 6mm jingle bells.  Finished size 5″ x 6 1/2″.
