Hello everyone and thank you for joining us for the Surprise Blog Hop to celebrate Purple Onion Designs!!
If you are following the hop, you should probably have arrived here from the amazing Sonja Kerkhoffs’ blog. Well friends, you’re on the right track! Woohoo! :)
I really love playing with Purple Onion Designs stamps and joining this Hop is a great chance to celebrate this fabulous company and their awesome collections!
If you love POD stamps as much as I do, you should definitely pop in their store and have a look around. And you’ll be happy to know that Purple Onion Designs Holiday Sale starts today, Friday, November 24 and runs through Friday, December 8. All stamps will be 25% off!! The sale includes all stamps in the sale category as well!
To create the card I’m sharing today I used some of the most adorable stamps from Twas The Night Before Christmas collection – the new stunning winter / holiday release from Purple Onion Designs – and I mixed them with some older stamps from the prior collections.
I wanted to create a warm living room where to place Sugar Plum sleeping in a chair near the Fireplace & Rug, decorated with Fireplace Decor and with some candy jars on it (from Sweet Shop Set).
So, I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with Copics. Then, I added a bit of texture to the armchair with my Colorless Blender and carefully fuzzy cut all the elements and created a cozy winter composition.
For the landscape framed by the window, I ink blended Blueprint Sketch, Abandoned Coral and Wild Honey Distress Ink on white cardstock, creating a smooth sky gradient. Then, I added some white splatters on it to create a snowy effect, using a white calligraphy ink (diluted with water) for a crisp look.
I stamped the Mountains background and colored it with Copics, before mounting it on my ink blended panel.
Finally, I die cut a window at the top of my front panel using Framed Tags – Chelsea – Creative Cuts by Mama Elephant and placed my landscape behind it.
To finish, I heat embossed the sentiment in white on kraft cardstock and added some sequins as embellishment.
