Did you know....

...there's a huge Fall and Winter stamp release at Purple Onion Designs! Go here, hereand here to see all the new designs from Michelle Clement and Stephanie Ackerman. Then visit Michele's blog to see what the design team created with this fun release!

And there's a special offer on Stephanie Ackerman's Autumn Kids. The stamps have some bumpy spots on the low lying areas of the rubber. These bumps do NOT affect the stamped images, but are not the quality or normal look of Purple Onion stamps. So Michele is offering the entire Autumn Kids collection of 7 stamps, plus the Sentiment Bubble Word set (a $47.00 value) for just $26.00! 

There's a limited number of about 20 sets, and will sell on a first come first served basis. There's a separate button on the bottom of the webpage for ordering the full collection at the discounted price.

Stamps used: Christmas Trees Doodle Frame, Stitches set

Here's a card I made with the Christmas Trees Doodle Frame set. I stamped the frame with Staz On ink on the smooth side of watercolor paper (thanks, Elizabeth!) and colored it with various Memento ink pads and a Tombow colorless blender pen.

The sentiment is framed, but I chose to ink just the words, and the faux stitching is from the Stitches set. I also added some Glossy Accents to the ornaments, and a bit of Frosted Lace Stickles to the tree's trim.

I love how the card turned out and now I have another card to send to Vera's card drive.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you'll find something you like in the new release, and I'll be sharing more cards soon. Have a wonderful weekend!

Stamps: All Purple Onion Designs
Cardstock: Canson watercolor paper
