Congratulations on your new house with Purple Onion

Hello friends,


Today I am sharing a card that I made with Purple Onion Designs stamps. Some of you may know that I my hubby took me to my first hiking trip. We hiked and camped in the forest for three days in Kuusamo in Eastern part of Finland. Beautiful scenery and pure nature. This card was very much inspired by that trip of ours:




I started to expreriment with my copics and drew and coloured this scene. For this card I used Birch Tree Background from Stacey Yacula Studio. Stacey also have a tent stamp called Tent but I didn't have that stamp in my collection so I drew my own tent. I asked my friend Nonni that what kind of card this could be and she suggested that this would make a sweat housewarming card. Then I coloured Charlotte from Stacey Yacula Studio Collection and added the sentiment from Sweet Occasions Sentiment Set. I thought this mouse looks so proud of his new "waterproof" home that I thought he is perfect for this card. Thank you, Nonni! You're the best!



And great news, Michele from Purple Onion Designs is having an anniversary sale starting today  - all stamps are 25% off until Friday 28th of August! Have great time shopping!

  5. Congratulations on completing your first hiking trip. That you were inspired to create this gorgeous card must mean that you have some pleasant memories of the adventure. :) Hiking is fun and I'm sure the scenery was gorgeous. This card is fabulous. I am always awed by your coloring talents, but now I am even more amazed (although I shouldn't be given your talents) that you can draw so well. That tent looks incredible. Adore the proud of himself little mouse. A huge and heartfelt wow from me! :)

  6. Suloinen kortti ja ihana tuo hiiri telttansa kanssa :)
    (Mä en kyllä ymmärrä, miksi ihmeessä edes leimoja käytät, kun osaat noin hyvin piirtää... tai ehkä sun pitäisi suunnitella omia leimoja? ;) )

  11. Is there anything you can't do. Drawing your own tent and what a great tent it is. This card is so charming, I wish I was moving so I could receive it. Just perfect coloring. Amazing.
