{The Cat's Pajamas} 4 U

Today's card feature's the No Peeking digital stamp from The Cat's Pajamas. This was a favorite clear stamp and I was sad to see it retired. So when Alma added the digital version to the shop I jumped on it.

I printed the bear and the 4 U tag onto Copic friendly cardstock then cut out using a pierce edge die. I used a combination of Copic and Altenew markers to color it plus a white gel pen to polka dot the bow. I added some patterned paper on the background to make it festive yet clean and simple. Easy peasy and one more Christmas card to add to the stash.

Last Day of the Purple Onion Designs Sale!

It is the last day to take advantage of the Purple Onion Designs anniversary sale. The sale ends at midnight EDT.

I stamped one of the fish from the Tropical Fish Set, Sea Horse and Crab onto Copic friendly cardstock, colored with Copic Markers, then fussy cut out. To prepare the background I used a stencil and blended lazy day and summer splash ink onto water color cardstock, then splashed with droplets of water. After attaching the net diecut I placed the tropical creatures onto to it and then stamped the sentiment from the Sea-timents set.

Swimmingly Good Day {Purple Onion Designs Sale}

I have definitely been the design team slacker due to some health concerns but I am trying to catch up with my talented teammates with projects for the annual Purple Onion Designs anniversary sale. The stamps, including those in the sale section are 25% off through August 9. 

Today's card features some super fun images illustrated by Shari Bresciani. 

I combined images from the Rocks, Seawood & CoralSeashells & Starfish and Squid & Stingray stamped onto a circle diecut for an underwater scene. After coloring with Copic Markers, I matted onto another cardstock circle and attached to the card front where I had blended tumbled glass ink. I stamped the larger starfish from the Seashells & Starfish set directly onto the card front twice, and also colored with Copic markers. The sentiment from the Sea-timents was stamped and white heat embossed onto a patterned paper strip using raspberry sorbet ink. A few holeless sequins finished it up.
