How incredible is this card that Jenn created for her daughter's softball coach? I thought it was perfection. A great mix of stamps, colors, patterns, textures and distressness. Ever notice how us papercrafters need to make up our own adjectives to describe something? Lol. Isn't the softball that she created (stitching and all) fabulous! You can see some closer details below.
Last year design team member Julie Dudley was part of a duo that started up a challenge blog called "Let's Get Shabby." Well, it is a year later and the girls at "Let's Get Shabby" are celebrating their 1st birthday. Congratulations!!
Purple Onion Designs sponsored their first challenge last year. Guess what? I am back joining the girls to offer another fabulous prize for the challenge winner. Challenge #13 is a shabby birthday creation using stamping. You can read more of the details of the challenge here. One lucky winner will receive a $100 credit towards Purple Onion Designs stamps. Not too shabby, huh? :)
Here are a few of the creations the girls at "Let's Get Shabby" created.
The faded Thank You Noteblock is a perfect way to reinforce the theme of this card. I love the colors of the buttons across the front. It ties in the colors of the heart as well as the mixed black and white background papers.
Or should I say butterfly design ideas are free? Here are a few more cards using the butterfly stamps featured in yesterday's post. This set has become a big favorite among customers. I think the design team kinda likes it too. ;)
Jill is at it again. This week's Purple Onion Designs DT inspiration comes from Jennifer Holmes. Jennifer's original design was a striking pink butterfly against a new favorite...kraft cardstock. The card is topped off with a little bling and a white border to highlight the butterfly.
I kind of forget that the majority of you are done with school for the year. Here in New York, the kids go till the end of June and go back after Labor Day. I like the timing of the school year and Summer vacation. I couldn't imagine the kids going back to school in August. This project from Jenn might come a little late for a lot of you. If so, keep it in mind for next year or the start of the 2011 school year. It could make a cute gift for the wee ones to give their new teachers in September or August.
