My sister shares my passion for papercrafting, so for her birthday, I made one of the little purses that are popular right now (although, they aren't as little as I thought). I just love the Gold Soriee DSP and am going to miss it most when it's gone. I made the purse from the DSP and trimmed it out with Calypso Coral card stock that I ran through the Big Shot using the Tasteful Trim die for the bottom.
I stamped out 6 large Sca.llop Flowers from the same DSP pack and crinkled and made a big flower from it and stuck a Antique Brad in the center.
I used my Envelope Punch Board to make an envelope for the gift certificate (a SU! one of course) to tuck away inside. I tied it shut with the Gold Satin Ribbon. I stuck inside her bag some Muskateer Mint minis and my FAVORITE candy, Lancaster Caramels!
Our baby grandson turned ONE two weeks ago and this is the card that I made for him. I started out with Cherry Cobbler and Soft Sky cardstock and then added a piece of Whisper White to the front that I ran through and cut a star from the Star Framelits and then through the Polka Dot Embossing folder. I added a piece of Maritime DSP behind it with the cute octopus on it.
I used the Playful Pennants stamps set to finish the card with the sentiment stamped in Whisper White Craft Ink onto Night of Navy card stock and flagged at both ends. I stamped out the banner in Cherry Cobbler and punched with the Pennant Builder punch and then cut the number 1 from Gold Glimmer paper from the Perfect Print BigZ die. I tied it on with Coastal Cabana Twine and piece of the the gold thread from the Gold Baker's Twine.
I am a SAHM and I have 4 girls and two adorable grandsons. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 22 years. I have been a Stampin'Up! demonstrator for 11 years. Along with stamping, I try to scrapbook and love spending time with family and friends.
