Mini stamp release & Anniversary sale

New stamps are now on sale at Purple Onion Designs! And to celebrate their 8th Anniversary, Michele is offering a 25% off discount for one week! Go here to see all the new stamps and use code SUM2011 as you checkout.

I made a quick card with the Beach Chair set by Michelle Clement. The set includes a beach chair with umbrella, a beach bag, and some handwritten sentiments.


I went the simple route and color washed some watercolor paper with Broken China and Antique Linen distress inks, then stamped the beach chair with Versafine ink when it was completely dry.

I decided to turn it into a Polaroid shot and stamped the sentiment below. The background is Hero Arts' Large Canvas Stripes, and the seam binding was dyed with Glimmer Mist in Chocolate Covered Cherries.

I'll be sharing more cards soon. Thanks, always, for stopping by!

Stamps: Purple Onion Designs, Hero Arts
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink, watercolor paper
Ink: Versafine, Ranger distress inks, Glimmer Mist
Other: pop dots, seam binding
