Purple Onion Designs - November Release/Black Friday Sale

Hello crafty friends! I have some exciting news... POD is launching a new collection of stamps in collaboration with designer Julian Charlton. 

This collection will be available on the 29th and there will be a Black Friday Sale... 25% off all stamps!  So get ready to shop!

These new stamps so unique and I really enjoyed playing around with them.  I think there are many creative possibilities but the direction I chose was to go colorful and cut them out to build some fun scenes on cards and tags. 

If you are looking for a fun but quick and easy way to create cards or tags, these stamps fit the bill.  I simply picked out a bunch of bright holiday colors and starting stamping away.  Red rubber stamps always stamp cleanly so you get a nice crisp solid image with one stamp.  

After I had all my images stamped out, I used my Scan N Cut to cut them out.(be sure to use the color mode in the scan settings) The really fun part was playing around with them until I found some cute arrangements I liked to create the scenes.  Then all I had to do was stamp the snowfall background onto the card front, sponge on a little aqua ink to ground area, and adhere the images with dimensional foam squares.  

I also made some tags.  Again, these were quick and easy to make.  I made hinged tags so they open up like a card.  I stamped the snowfall and snowflakes onto the front for a decorative background and then added the images to create mini scenes.  I stamped a greeting and to/from on the inside of the tags.
