Cute Little Purses Made With The Cupcake Punch

Purse Card Stampinup Up Summer Mini National Scrapbook Promotion 30% Discount

Good Morning My Stamping Friends. . .  Yesterday I featured the cute little toddler birthday card using the embedding technique with circles.  Today I have a girly girl kind of card.  My card base is Poppy Parade matted with a piece of Whisper White.  I used our Polka Dot Embossing Folder on it.  Next is a layer of Pawsitively Pints DP.  For a little splash I punched a strip of Basic Back with the Scallop Trim Border Punch.  My focal point was made with one of our cool tools, the Cupcake Punch that was featured in the Occasion Mini.  All you need to do is choose a really cute designer paper that you like, mine was Pawsitively Prints.  I used three of the oh so cute pattern papers and punched them with the Cupcake Punch.  For the top of my handbag I cut a 3/4" circle and cut it in half, then for the handle go back to the card stock that you just cut the circles from and insert your punch again about halfway up and punch.  This gives you the handle for your cute purse.  I added one of our Rhinestone Jewels.  If you have not tried them yet you are missing out.  The sparkle on these rhinestones is phenomenal.  My sentiment is from Touch Of Kindness from the Summer Mini, punched with the Large Oval and the Scallop Oval Punches.

Fresh and Simple

Sale A Bration Sweet Summer Tiny Tags Stampin' Up Occasion Mini Birthday Card

Hi Everyone. . . thanks for all your comments, I'm glad to be back.  My computer has been cleaned and is feelin' good.  While I was away I did find time to make some cards, this takes a little bit of the stress off when I can work ahead.  Now for my card today.  My sketch is from Michelle Wooderson at Mish Mash.  My card base is Baja Breeze, matted with some Very Vanilla and my DP is the lovely Springtime Vintage.  Love it!!!!!!  The card is pretty simple.  I used our Scallop Trim Border and Corner Punches to make my rectangle.  For those of you who do not know how to make a scallop box or triangle, check out the Stampin' Up UTube site.  I'm sure there are several videos for you to choose from.  Darn this would have been a great time to experiment with making videos.  I'm just a little intimidated when it comes to making these things.  It's something I need to work on.  Back to the card now.  My scallop border was made with my slit punch.  It is now retired and we have a new die cut with several designs on it.  Check that out.  My stamp sets are Sweet Summer and Tiny Tags.  For my small scallop I used the die cut from Birds and Blooms, the one inch circle punch nests beautifully with it. 

Projects for Sale. . .  If you see something that you like and would want to purchase, please contact me.  All the things on my site are for purchase, 3D projects, cards, totes, etc.  All items will be mailed first class and in a padded envelope.  Envies will be included with the cards.  I'm just an email away,   I also do custom orders for showers, birthday parties, gift certificates and more.

Ex-Large Fancy Flower

Stampin' Up ABC Holiday Bundle Stampin Up Holiday Mini Stampin Up Occasion Quotes Stamp Set

Hello My Crafty Friends. .  Have you had your second cup of coffee yet.  I'm still working on my frist.  Today I have another square card to share.  I got this idea and sketch while blogging over the week end.  This card was cased from Me My Stamps and I by Chat.  She does beautiful work.  There is very little stamping going on this one.  The quote comes from our Level 3 Hostess Set called Occasional Quotes.  There is some texture on this card done with a Score Pal.  It is scored at 1/4" consistantly across the Whisper White card stock.  I used two small pieces from our Pattern Designer Series Paper Stack on pg 175 of our catty.  Then I used some cool tool for my focal point, some pearls and I made omy flower from the Exlarge Fancy Flower punchHere is how I did it.  I punched 3 peices of our Designer Paper Pack with the Fancy Flower Punch.  Then I spritzed them with water (lightly) and scrunched them all up.  Scrunch them as much as you like but be careful not to tear them.  Open them up as much as you like and layer the three pierces together alternating the petals.  Here's where you get to play a little bit.  Shape your petals as you like, then let them dry.   When they are dry I used mini glue dots to form my flower and added a pearl centerpiece.  Oh so pretty.  This is one that if you try to mail it I suggest putting it into a padded envelope or better yet just hand deliver.   While sitting here yesterday one more idea came to me for my craft fair this week end, so I will be trying to get a few of them made.  I'll show you as soon as I get one done.  It's a pocket card and I want to put a few candy canes in it.   Thanks for stopping by today and chatting.  I hope you enjoyed the card and if you need any of the supplies to make this card please click on my SHOP NOW button below.  Now for the Recipe.

  • Paper:  Concord Crush #119792, Whisper White #100730, Strip of Paper from the Brights #117155.
  • Stamp Set:  Occasional Quotes WM#117048/CM#120142
