24 Tags of Christmas 2017: Layered Images, Purple Onion

NOTE: Michele over at Purple Onion is away due to a death in her family; she’s asked that we wait to pummel her with orders til she’s back and underway again. Her website says the 21st, with orders possibly taking 2 weeks, but I suspect it could be a little longer than that. Please be praying for her family in the meantime; and be patient with any orders you place. 

If you’re already a Purple Onion fan, and have a blog, drop me a note using my contact page – I’m working on a little surprise if you’re game to join in.

24 Tags of Christmas 2017: Layered Images

If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know that I love Stacey Yacula’s designs at Purple Onion Designs! She’s such a good illustrator – and the images are really good ones for this technique I haven’t used in a while: layering. Figure out what parts are in the front and which are in the back, and layer them with a little adhesive between….and you get a really fun look!

Lots of you have expressed an interest in creating scenes….but wanting something quicker and easier to do when making multiple cards for Christmas. Well, I have a tree idea for ya!

Acetate Coffee Card – Honeybee Stamps

Stamps with big heavy outlines are easy to color – and sometimes they’re the most fun! Simplify shapes and shadows to make them graphic  – and let the sharp contrast shine! This sweet set from HoneyBee is going to be fun for coloring this winter….because anything with a donut it it gets my vote. LOL! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

Coloring Christmas Buttons

Coloring Christmas Buttons

The little circle that popped out when I did a quick cut of the die in this video was what got me started thinking about making little buttons – the coloring of the image itself can be really basic, no need to stress over blending or anything. The magic is in the shadows that make it dimensional! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

I’m gonna be making a lot of buttons now…. LOL.
