Thanks to everyone that has placed an order during the sale! I have been busy working to get the orders out. There are a few stamps that are out of stock (most of which was noted on the website) but they will be replenished throughout the week. I just wanted to quickly update you and share a few more cards. Then it's back to pulling orders!
Look at the cute packaging Simone created to gift Tucker to a friend.
Piali did a little paper piecing to create this card using the Heart Flower stamp. There are quite a few stamps from Stephanie Ackerman that are great for this. It is always fun to add color and pattern using all the wonderful papers out there.
The final card for today is this beautiful card from Therese. I love the way the flowers came out. The colors, dimension and glitter accents are perfect. How cute does Willa look too?! You can check out how Therese made this card in the video posted below.
This summer marks 11 years of Purple Onion Designs Stamps! It is really hard to believe that much time has passed already. Once again, I would like to thank everyone for their support. Please enjoy 25% off all stamps until Sunday, August 31, 2014.
I have a quite to share from the design team so let me get started....
Better late than never! It only took a little over a month for me to post this. Here are a few more projects using the stamps included in the overstock sale. These stamps will remain on sale until Sunday, August 17th.
I have put a bunch of overstocked stamps on sale. You can find them in the Overstock Sale section of the website. There are limited quantities on many of the stamps and a few are being discontinued. The majority of stamps are at least 50% off!
Here are some cards using some of the stamps that are included in the sale.
I have a some more weeks from Kelly's Project Life album as promised!
Week 10 - Once again Kelly has pulled out the "More Please" stamp that is a freebie when ordering the Foodie Set.
Week 11 - The "Happy Mail" stamp is used on a postcard that is included in this weeks recap.
Week 12 - Kelly shares some highlights from a mini trip to Canada. She uses the star rating stamp from the Foodie set to document some of her favorites of the trip.
Week 13 - Uses the Diesel Number Set across 2 journaling cards. I love when details & photos are spread across more than one card It has such a great look. I also like the contrast between the colorful solid letters across the top of the card and the open black & white numbers running down the side of the two cards.
Week 15 - I like how Kelly has kept most of her journaling in the center of the pages this week and the photos run across the top and bottom. Each week there is something special about the way she lays out the spread.
The large ampersand (aka & sign) is from the Over Emphasize set. This set is from quite a few years ago when large puncuation was a big trend. It seems to be a bit popular again. :)
The other stamp set that Kelly used this week is one of the all time best sellers. The Vintage Postmark Set is a stamp set that was designed from antique postcards that I have collected over the years. You can see it stamped on the "Happiness" card and on the bottom corner of the "fact no. 19" card.
Week 16 - One of the Plain Jane Labels can be seen stamped off of a journaling card which Kelly added her and her husband's intials too. Another thing I love that Kelly does often is to add some journaling or words that curve around an object in a photograph. You can see where she has done it with the soup bowl photo below.
Week 19 - Did I mention how I love seeing little wood veneers being used throughout the PL pages? I just think there is nothing cuter than seeing one of them pop up on a card. Look how adorable the little heart is in the center of the photograph below. This week's stamp is the Deco Date Circle.
Week 22 - Diggin all the green thoughout week 22. All the greenery in the photos carries over to Kelly's choice of journaling cards and embellishments.
The center green card uses the "Happy Mail" stamp again. I like how Kelly repeatedly stamped the word over and over without reinking the stamp. It gives a nice faded look and works really well the the ombre green card. The white card next to it uses the geotag stamp from This is December. You can create woodgrain cards by using the Woodgrain Background stamp.
Week 23 - This is the final week I have to share for now. Kelly uses quite a few stamps throughout this week. She has created her own embellishments by stamping on vellum and adding them to her page.
Kelly used the row of stars and "Great Friends, Good Food, Fun Times" stamp from the Foodie setalong with the Vintage Journaling Label.
I mentioned the other day that I hadn't shared any of Kelly or Eunyoung's Project Life pages in AWHILE. Well I owe Kelly a big apology! I just realized that I haven't shared any of her pages since the beginnig of the year. Kelly I am soooo sorry! I had put the pages & cards up in her gallery here. I normally do that after I show them in a blog post. I went back to double check where I left off to find out that I never shared them. I really feel horrible. I'll probably split this up into more than one post since I am so behind. Enjoy!
Kelly created a bunch of journal cards ahead of time to use throughout the upcoming weeks. Here are the cards that you will see throughout her upcoming pages. Sometimes it is easier to just go with a pre-stamped card then trying to figure out what stamps to use while working on a particular week.
This is Kelly's opening page for 2014. The photos of her and her husband are a cute way to start off the album.
Kelly used a couple of star stamps on the card below. I honestly do not know which sets the stars are from. I think they are probably from Treasue Map, This is December & Foodie. However, there are also stars in a bunch of other sets likeFlea Market & Wanted. There are plenty of others too. If you do a search on the website for "star: it will pull the others up.
Week 1 - The next pre-made card that Kelly used is below. She created a card for her journaling which she stitched a border around and stamped the "You are Here" and star from the Treasure Map set in the bottom corner.
Week 2 - The kraft colored card uses the "More Please" stamp which is a freebie stamp that accompanies the Foodie set. This stamp was inspired by Oliver Twist. :)
Once again, the Plain Jane labels are used to show the date and the "captured on" from the Photographer set is on the bottom of the kraft card.
Week 5 - Uses two of the cards that Kelly created at the beginning of the year. The double diagonal border was created using the stamps from the This Is December set. The other card is stamped with the Scallop Circle.
Week 6 - Only uses the Deco Date stamp but Kelly did include several different wood veneer shapes which I love on PL pages.
Kelly was back at it again creating a bunch of cards to use on upcoming weeks. This time she played around with watercolors and the Doodle Heart stamp set.
I think my favorite is on the bottom right with all the larger solid hearts repeatedly stamped on a diagonal. It will be fun to see these cards pop up throughout the year as well.
Week 7 & 8 start to use the heart cards...
I still have more from Kelly which I will include in the next blog post. You can visit Kelly's blog to read more details on her pages.
I haven't shared any of the fun stamping that Kelly & Eunyoung have incorporated into their Project Life pages in awhile. I'll start with Eunyoung's pages. Eunyoung has even used a few of Stacey's new stamps. They are cute little accents to her pages. Enjoy!
