Purple Onion Designs birthday sale reminder


     Have you hopped over to the Purple Onion Designs store and scooped up some of the adorable stamps?  Tomorrow's the last day.


      For today's card I've used several stamps--Clouds, Balloon Trio, Tree Line, Grass, and the adorable Buddy dog.  Hopefully you can see the sparkle on the balloons.  Instead of using the complete stamp, I left off the strings and added some real string instead.


     Have a blessed day!

Stamps--Purple Onion Designs
Ink--Copics, Memento Tuxedo Black, Versafine Black Onyx, Sakura white gel pen

Happy birthday Purple Onion Designs


WOOHOO!!!


     There's no way you'll want to miss out on this great sale at Purple Onion Designs.
     Today's card was made in celebration of another year of business for this wonderful company.  I just had to fill my scene with lots of little critters to celebrate.  Blueberry bear, Timber beaver, Lillie the garden owl, Petal the turtle, Buttercup bunny, and Sunny the bird.  For Sunny I used a mirror stamping technique to have her facing both directions.  
     A background of birch trees, ferns and mushrooms complete the scene.  LOTS of stamping and the animals were all fussy cut and popped up on foam.  I also gave them all party hats to match Sunny, using her hat and one from the Balloon, party hat and kite set.
     The sentiment was stamped and hand cut.  I used a little string on both ends for the birds to hold up the banner.


     You can find all these fun critters and LOTS more in the POD store so run on over there and have fun shopping.
     Have a blessed day!

Beach bears


     It's definitely beach weather time....if you can take the extreme heat.
     For this card I've used several stamps from the recent Happy Trails release from Purple Onion Designs.  
     The sky was created by adding Distress ink to a craft sheet, spraying it with water and dragging the piece of watercolor paper through it.  The sand was stamped and colored with Distress inks.


Copics Used:
bear E31, E35, R30
mouse W1, W3, W5, R20, R30

coconut tree YG91, YG93, YG95, YG97, E21, E23, E25, E71, E74, E79

     All the images were fussy cut after stamping.  I tried for a little 3-D effect on the umbrella, bears, and palm tree by layering with some foam tape.


Have a blessed day!

Happy birthday!


     Today's kind of a special day.  It's my birthday AND it's Art Impressions birthday too.  Wish I could say we were the same age but that would be a big fib.  LOL  
     I'll be celebrating quietly today with a nice family dinner tonight but AI is pulling out the stops with a wonderful anniversary sale.  There's no way you won't find something you like in their store, especially if you have a big funny bone.

30_ off Retail Sale

     Nothin' like a group of friends to share the fun with.


     I didn't list my Copics.  Used TOO many in the coloring box to keep up with.
     Have a blessed day!
