POD Merriest Little City

It is finally here! The Purple Onion Designs Christmas release! And it is possibly the best one yet. I absolutely love it! For my first card I’ve used some stamps from the Stacey Yacula collection. At the front you have Cotton and Nibbles walking past the City Christmas Tree with the City Skyline in the background. The sentiment is from the Merriest City sentiment set.

Here is a side-on photo as well.

POD Gazing at the Sunrise

There is something about rubber stamps and the amazingly clear stamp you get from it. There is no secret that I love Purple Onion Designs and their gorgeous stamps. I’m looking forward to making the blog more active and show you all the cards I’ve made the past couple of months. First off is this Gazing couple enjoying the Sunrise. And the Seaside sentiment set is perfect. I’ve used a matching dark brown ink for this one.

POD Beach Time

For my third card for the Purple Onion Designs latest release I’ve made another beach scene. This time it is a beach scene with the ocean and sunset in the background.

Taylor and Thaddeus are playing in the sand as the sun sets behind the Beach House. They can easily walk up the Boardwalk and over to the stairs when they get called in for bed time. It was fun masking the stamps together and then colouring up the whole scene. I’ve stuck with a rather limited colour palette this time as well. I used an old sentiment from the Everyday Blurbs to go with.

POD Lifeguard

I have another fun card made with stamps from the most recent Purple Onion Designs release. Brody, the lifeguard, has left his Lifeguard Chair and is carefully watching as Lilo is playing in the water. The waterline is made with the new background stamp.

The coloured panel has been cut narrow to leave for a sentiment being stamped directly onto the card base. The sentiment is from the new sentiment set.

POD Seaside release

I am surfing in today to let you all know it’s that time of the YEAR! Yup, that’s right! Purple Onion Designs is out with their summer release and it is full of summer, water, sand and Stacey Yacula. Can it get any better? I think not! There are so many amazingly cute characters that it took forever to choose what to colour up first.

But I did choose in the end. I chose Kalei, the awesome surfer bunny! I masked the Rip Curl together with the Ocean and Shoreline background stamp (a very clever stamp that can be used two ways).

Also, the Seaside sentiment stamp set is a must have. So many great sentiments! I stamped it in a colour similar to the coloured sky to keep it reasonably neutral.
