Purple Onion Designs | Black Friday 25% OFF Sale!

November 24, 2023

Hello crafty friends! Have you checked out Purple Onion Designs Black Friday Sale? They are currently offering 25% OFF rubber stamps (some exclusions apply).

I made two cards to share with you today featuring products from the latest Purple Onion Release. If you’ve never used rubber stamps before, one of the ways that I prefer to use them is with the MISTI (which is currently 12% off at Scrapbook.com with the coupon code BLACKFRIDAY).

Here is a REEL that I made a few weeks ago showing how to use rubber stamps with the MISTI as well as with a clear mounting stamp (my video features the 4″x6″ clear mounting stamp).

** Affiliated links used where applicable at no extra cost to you. **

My first card features the new Fraser & Fir stamp illustrated by Stacey Yacula. I stamped my image using my MISTI onto a 4.25″ x 5.5″ piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb card stock. I then re-stamped my image onto a sheet of Gina K. Designs Masking Magic Paper and fussy cut it out to create a mask for my original stamped image. I placed my mask (it’s sticky on the back) on top of my image and then lightly blended my background with some Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide Ink. To create the illusion of snow, I next added some white snow spatters using some diluted Copic Opaque White Paint and a round paintbrush.

I removed my masking piece and then colored my images with Copic alcohol markers.

  • Browns: E40, E42, E43, E44, E47
  • Pinks: RV52, RV04, RV17
  • Blues: B000, B02, B06

I used the same method as above for my second card. This time, I used some Speckled Egg Distress Oxide Ink for my background and a different Copic color blend for my images. My image came from the Tofu & Friends Christmas Carol Stamp illustrated by Pei.
