A blooming good day

Hi there! Today I'd like to share a card made with some new images from Stephanie Ackerman for Purple Onion Designs. Her Hometown collection features different buildings, which are so popular now, along with some matching sentiments.


For my card I chose the Flower Shop. I colored the shop with Copics and stamped the sentiment below it.


I used Martha Stewart's hydrangea border punch and drew some faux stitching lines around the edge. The piece was mounted on an embossed card and tied with some rayon seam binding.

Please visit Purple Onion Designs and see the selection of buildings and store fronts in the Hometown collection. Thanks for visiting today, and have a blooming good week!

Stamps: Purple Onion Designs
Ink: Memento, Ranger distress inks
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink
Other: Copics, Sizzix dots embossing folder, Prismacolor pencils, Martha Stewart hydrangea border punch, rayon seam binding, dimensional adhesive

  9. Donna the punched border as part of the stamped piece is a wonderful accent. It ties in with the window box on the cute building. At that bow, well that's just gorgeous!
