Purple Onion Designs | Anniversary Sale!

August 14, 2020

Hello friends! I am so thrilled to be guest designing for the Purple Onion Designs Anniversary Sale! Purple Onion Designs is celebrating their 17th year in business with a 25% off rubber stamps sale! (Some exclusions apply.) To help celebrate, I created a fun A6-sized box card today featuring some cute illustrations by Stacey Yacula.

To start, I stamped all of my images from the Sunshine Lake Collection with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I then used Copic Markers to color them. I’ve also listed each image that I used separately below along with their link to the Purple Onion Design Store for easy access.

Copic Color Combos Used:

  • Dark Fox Fur: YR12, YR23, YR27, E07
  • Light Fox Fur: E50, E53, E55
  • Hedgehog: E40, E41, E42, E43, E44
  • Blue Hat: B91, B93, B95
  • Green Hat and Vest: YG91, YG95, YG97
  • Cattails: YG61, YG63, YG67, G28, E53, E55
  • Fish: YR00, YR04, E09
  • Duck: Y11, Y13, Y15, V12
  • Standing Rocks: W0, W2, W3, W5
  • Bottom Rocks: C00, C0, C2, C4

I added some river waves by diecutting a few pieces of white card stock with the Woodland Border Die from Sunny Studio Stamps. I blended each piece with both Salty Ocean and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Inks. I stamped some grasses with green ink and also added some background scenery using the Lake Background Stamp.
