I know I will be knee deep in stuffing (or dressing as you Southerns like to call it) today. I decided to set this post up ahead of time because I am sure I will have plenty of cooking to do. I just wanted to share some more wonderful creations from design team member Courtney Kelly.
I also have a very cute (and easy) Thanksgiving dinner favor to share with you from Roree.
The final addition to our holiday team is Sunghee Chon. I stumbled upon Sunghee's work when she entered the Caardvarks challenge I was sponsoring. I continued to visit her blog appropriately named Creativity In Progress.
You will see that Sunghee does some fun 3D projects and has the
silliest sense of humor. Make sure you visit Sunghee's blog to find out more information on her projects.
Here is a series of baskets Sunghee made for Thanksgiving. This will give you an idea of her humorous side.
I am always searching for a word to describe someone who colors well. Wouldn't colorer be a good word? It does look weird though. How about colorist? At least that is a "real" word but it makes me think of someone who colors your hair. Or maybe Colorista? Reminds me of a Starbucks Barista. Anyone have a good word?
So, why do I bring this up? Because I am always looking for a designer that has strong coloring skills. Which leads me to the next holiday designer. Welcome Linda Cummings! Linda did a great job coloring the new Thanksgiving stamps by Michelle Clement. I also like all the little background elements she added. Take a look:
And speaking of Colorista's...here are some more cards from Jenn. She had fun with the turkey stamp.
I still have a few more designers joining us this holiday season. There are actually three more to share with you. If you are not familiar with Mel McCarthy's work then you are in for a real treat. Mel is one of the design team members at the Caardvarks challenge blog. I was first introduced to Mel's work over the Summer when I was a sponsor for the Caardvark's blog. Mel's projects are pretty incredible as you will see. Make sure you check out her blog which is packed with tutorials. I will include links to her blog for the tutorials on the projects posted below. You can also follow all her Purple Onion Designs projects here.
Today's introduction to the holiday team is another old Self-Addressed designer...Roree Rumph! You might already be familiar with Roree's work from thumbing thorough a magazine or two. Roree is an amazing cardmaker. Just take a look at her blog "A House of Cards". I am lucky to have her joining us this holiday season.
Another addition to the Holiday Team is Hilary Kanwischer! Hilary has plenty of experience using Purple Onion Designs stamps. Hilary was one of the original design team members at Self-Addressed. Self-Addressed was an extremely successful kit company during the kit company craze a few years back. I supplied the stamps that were part of the kit each month. I am excited to have Hilary back playing with my stamps.
Hilary made a trio of projects for her Thanksgiving entertaining this year. She is going with an neutral theme this year which carries over into her projects. I think they are great examples of how the new Thanksgiving stamps can be used without having to color them.
Hilary first created a card using the Thanksgiving Noteblock as her dinner invite. She then decorated cute little boxes to place on each guests plate. She is going to fill them with a little gift. Hilary also pulled out her Pink Flamingo alphabet stamps for the names on the placecards.
Isn't this just fab?! I love this layout that Heidi did. Look at the texture to the corn. These are the little things I adore in Heidi's work.
Here are a few cards she has whipped up:
Heidi has been a long time fan of Purple Onion Designs. So, you might of run across some of her work on the website or in past blog postings. I am looking forward to seeing all that she creates this holiday season. Welcome Heidi!
