Especially For You...

TGIF my friends!

And oh what a special Friday it is because there's not one... not two... but three new holiday collections being released at Purple Onion Designs! Shari Bresciani has two super cute collections, Snow Much Fun and It's Snowing Cats and Dogs. While Stacey Yacula has the enchanting Home for the Holidays collection. As always Purple Onion gives you the freedom to order from these collections a la carte, which is awesome but if you are someone who 'suffers' from Full Set Syndrome like myself then now is the time to take advantage of the limited time discount of 30% OFF when you order the complete collections.   

  • Snow Much Fun (Shari Bresciani) - 19 stamps & the Snow Much Fun Sentiment Set - $90.00
  •  It's Snowing Cats & Dogs (Shari Bresciani) - 16 stamps & Furry Friends Sentiment Set - $82.00
  •  I'll Be Home For The Holidays (Stacey Yacula) - 21 stamps & The Home For the Holidays Sentiment Set - $128.00

This promotion will only be available through November 12th, so if you are thinking about treating yourself to some new rubber stamps don't wait too long. ;)

I've been creating so many cards using these new stamps which I can't wait to share, but for my first one out I chose this pretty, non-traditional Christmas card featuring a mix of Stacey Yacula images from the Home for the Holidays collection as well as a couple older stamps. The darling squirrel and mouse wrapping the gift image is called Especially for You and the new Room Background seemed like the perfect place for them to be enjoying this holiday prep. To fill the room a bit more I grabbed the older Sparkle Tree and Presents to really make it look like they have been busy all afternoon long. Rather than the usual reds and greens of the holiday season I thought it would look quite chic to deck their halls in shades of aqua and violet. Even the snowy sky outside the windows is a pretty shade of purple. I added a lot of sparkle to the tree which is kinda hard to see in the photo but such a pretty touch in person and totally suits the overall vibe of this Christmas scene. :)  

Thanks for visiting the ol' blog once again, it's been hoppin' with new goodies and previews and I promise there is still plenty more to come!
