Got Onions?

Purple Onions, that is! I'm honored to announce that I am now on the Purple Onion Designs design team! (Pinching myself....pinching myself)


After I ordered a set of their stamps, Michele, the owner, sent me a confirmation along with an inquiry: Would I be interested in making some cards if she sent me some of their new stamps? 

I think she could hear me scream my reply.

After sending her my card samples, she asked if I would be interested in joining the team! I was a little hesitant at first, but decided it was just what I needed to get back into stamping again.

I love the assortment of styles that POD offers. From cute and whimsical to their elegant butterflies and of course, their awesome noteblocks. All of their stamps are deeply etched, unmounted red rubber. I have a stash of cling foam, but there are ways of stamping unmounted stamps perfectly without any mounts or wood.



Here's a card that I made with their Citrus Set. I added some Glossy Accents to the orange, and cut apart the "punny" sentiment to fit. I also used Reverse Wonky Rectangles again, which is becoming a favorite new die.

Thank you, Michele, for inviting me on board! I can't wait to share my cards with the new stamp release next week.

Thanks so much for stopping by and letting me share my happy news with you!

Stamps: Purple Onion Designs, Hero Arts Large Canvas Stripes
Inks: Ranger distress ink, Versafine 
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink, Hero Arts kraft
Other: Copics, Spellbinders, Couture Creations embossing folder, Glossy Accents, sheer ribbon, pop dots
