Welcome to the Purple Onion SURPRISE bloghop! A few of us fans decided to put together a little surprise for Michele – and to help out our readers as well by drawing some attention to today’s Black Friday sale!

I keep adding to the sale list over on THIS Page:



Purple Onion Surprise Bloghop

I was recently looking for a specific raccoon stamp, and was so frustrated that I couldnt’ find it. I sat down with my lunch (mom’s amazing tomato vegetable soup!) and dumped out my collection of Purple Onion stamps on my desk and started sorting….I decided on Storage Envelopes for them, and prepped the cardstock to go into the long tall ones so I could create key sheets for them – and stamped colorable images along the way. I also filmed a little transformation of a spring stamp for you at the end of the video – hope you enjoy! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on  YouTube!

All those colored images are cut out….and some have made it onto cards, below; captions include the stamp names; go to the shop and search for the stamp name. And the storage envelopes I used are these (they come in a bunch of sizes).

Wishing (dandelion and mouse)


Street (town buildings), Old Betsy (truck), Millie (hedgehog), Holly (mouse)


Treehouse, Fawn (rabbit with mistletoe), Birch (winter bunny with hat)

Pine Tree Farm (background), Market Stand, Sweet Shop set (candy jars), Elliot (mouse with leaf hat), Oliver (garden mouse with hat)


The Perfect Spot (scene), Skylar (Owl with twigs), Rupert (fox with snowballs), Wilson (bear with snowball)

Front Door, Claus (bunny with tree), Ash (winter raccoon)
