It's A Special Day Just For You

Sharing with you today is a another card I've created with stamps from Purple Onion Designs.

It's A Special Day Just For You

Stamps used: 

It's a special day for Pearl!  And Smokey and Buddy is here to celebrate the special day with her!  


Smokey, Buddy and Pearl are all coloured using Copic markers, whereas the background with Bunting, Tree Horizon and clouds are coloured with distress markers.  At the base of the card, I've adhered a die cut stitched cloud.

A Beautiful Day sentiment set is becoming of my favourite set of sentiments as it has all the happy wishes that I want to put on a happy card!

Just a gentle reminder that the anniversary sale at Purple Onion Designs is coming to an end soon, on 16 August, all stamps are currently on 25% off so be sure to grab them before the sale ends!

XOXO from Blueberry

Happy Saturday!  I hope everyone is having a great weekend!  It's a little cloudy here in Singapore, with some light showers but I like it like this, it's a little cooler (:

Sharing with you today is a shaker Valentines' card I created using a die cut and an image from Purple Onion Designs.


Stamp used: Blueberry

Blueberry is one of my favourite stamps from Purple Onion Designs!  It's such a smiley bear!  I coloured it with my copic markers and gave it the extra touch of cute blush on its cheeks.



To create this card, I used some various sizes of heart shape dies to cut 3 heart shapes on my water colour paper.  I used my WRMK fuse tool to make shaker pockets and filled them up with sequins and glittery beads and stars.  Lastly, I just aligned the shaker pockets with my water colour paper (with the hearts window). 

Before I attached the shaker pockets on the card, I used My Favorite Things Die-namics Stitched Scallop Basic Edges to die cut the edge, blended some cracked pistachio distress colour on the base of the card to give the card a little more details.

The die cut of XOXO is a pattern found in the Silhouette Design Store and I've cut about 5 of them and stacked them up for a more 3D effect.  If you do not have a Silhouette Cameo machine, I'm sure you can find alternative similar die cuts to replace it!

I hope you like what I've shared with you today!  Oh ~ just a gentle reminder, there's still 4 days before the anniversary sales at Purple Onion Designs ends!  All stamps are 25% off!  Don't miss it if you have been wanting to buy any of the stamps!

Happy card making!

Last Day

Today will be the last day that you will be able to purchase the new collection from Stacey Yacula ~ Happy Trails and Once Upon A Time at a discounted price of over 30% off.  So if you have been pondering, maybe today is just the day to make the purchase!
 
Just to share with you another project that I've done using the new some of the stamps from the new collection ~ Happy Trails.


 
The sky's THE LIMIT



I coloured the Mountain background with some light wash of watercolours and blended the grassland with a distress ink.  As the hot air balloon is the main focus of the card, I chose brighter colours from my Copic markers to give it a more vibrant look.
 
Another project that I've done up just a few days back is a bookmark using Once Upon A Time collection.

 
a new chapter awaits
 
 

For this bookmark, I used just half of the stamped image from the Book template to create the background and I also blended it with a light touch of distress ink.  I know bookmark is supposed to be flat so that it fits nicely in between the pages of the book but I just can't help but want to give it a popped up effect and so I stick on a little foam dot just to make Mia stand out in the bookmark!
 
I hope you like the projects that I've shared today and if you would like to see more wonderful works with the new collections, just head over to here! Last reminder! ~ today will be the last day to grab both collections at a Puple Onion Designs with discounted price of a slight more than 30% off so don't wait too long :)

See you again real soon!

Sharing with you today are 2 projects that I've done using some of the stamps with the new Happy Trails!




I decided to keep the VW Bus as the main focus of the card and so I coloured it with Copic markers, the Country road background is coloured using a very light wash of water colours.



 

Stamps doesn't just have to be used on cards! It can be used on 3D projects, mini boxes etc etc... the possibilities are endless!

I really like how the luggage set matches the little luggage box that I have cut out using my Silhouette Cameo machine.   The little luggage box can be used for keeping stationary, knick-knacks and more :)

You Melt My Heart (once again!)

Happy Thursday! 
 
Sorry for the missing~in~action for the past 1 month.  I have been really busy with my son's school re-open activities, rearranging all his tuition schedules and school's supplementary classes.  It was all topsy turvy!  And with the Lunar New Year celebrations just ended last week, I'm glad that we are back to the usual routine.
 
Sorry for all the babbling!  Now let's get right back to card making as this blog is what it's all about :)
 
Valentines' Day is just round the corner, in fact it's just 5 days away!  So today, I'm going to share with you a Valentines card that I've made a few days back.


Stamps used:  Johnny, May, Tree Line, sentiments from Ice Cream Parlor
 
All the above stamps can be found on Purple Onion Designs store.
 
If you notice, I've used the exact sentiment for last year's Valentines card as well!  I really like this sentiment as it is unique and sweet!
 
Johnny and May were coloured using Copic markers.  As for the Tree Line background images, I've used Zig clean color real brushes.  The card stock and the polariod frame was a gentle blend of distress inks.



I've added a little button bow that's made out of jute cord for just an extra fun to the soft pastel coloured card.  And also the little die cut heart for Johnny to hold onto.  What's a Valentines card without a red heart yah?  :D
 
I hope you like what I've shared with you today.  If you do need an extra dose of inspiration, please hop over to Purple Onion Designs for more inspiring Valentines projects!  I'm sure you will be greatly inspired!
 
Happy crafting!

Merry & Bright

I can't believe Christmas will be here in another 18 days' time!  Time flies... where did all the other months went? 
 
Are you all ready for the festive celebrations and feasting?  And have you been busy making Christmas cards?
 
I have another Christmas card to share with you today.
 
And before I forget, Purple Onion Designs stamps are still on sale, 25% off all stamps till 7 December so you still have time to hop over and pick up some of the stamps you are eyeing on before the sales is over!  Hurry hurry!
 



I just love how versatile and cute that Mistletoe and Snowball are!  You can simply just create tags and cards on their own or match them up with any other stamps that you have. 



All the images are coloured with Copic markers.  There's not much of a traditional Christmas~y colours in this card and the background is blended with a dark tone of distress ink Hickory Smoke.  As for the background of Snow Fort, I blended Milled Lavender for a contrast look.
 
To give the snow fall background a more 3 dimensional feel, I used Ranger enamel accents in white with a fine tip applicator.  I love how the enamel drops look after they are all dried up and it's just so much fun and easy to create different sizes of snow fall with the fine tip applicator



The sentiments Merry & Bright is a SVG cut file that I used my Silhouette Cameo cutting machine to cut it out.
 
I hope you like the card that I've shared today!  If you need more inspirations on Purple Onion Designs stamps, please head over to the website and check out the Design Team's wonder creations, I'm sure you will be greatly inspired!
