This is the Bag-a-lope we made at my eScape night last night. It is amazing what you can do with a some card stock, a few stamps and an envelope, isn’t it?
We used Pretty in Pink card stock and stamped with Pretty in Pink ink Stampin’ Up!’s Priceless swirly stamp (it’s gorgeous, isn’t it?). Then we stamped Boho Backgrounds twice, once in Pretty in Pink and once in Certainly Celery on Whisper White card stock.
The punches then came out! We used the slit punch for the corners of the Certainly Celery Designer Series Paper (DSP) and the Certainly Celery paper. We then punched out our Boho Backgrounds two stamped images with the 1 inch circle and the 1 3/8 inch circle punches. We layered them on top of the scallop circle punch and there you have it! Pop it all on top of Certainly Celery DSP and Certainly Celery cardstock and we’re almost done 🙂
Of course, except for the top of the bag. We used the corner rounder punch for the scalloped effect and then the word window punch (yes! that’s right!) to make the handle. Pretty cool punching, heh!
And what a great bag-a-lope you can use for a gift bag and coordinate with your card.
If you would like to order any punches, they are a great tool and make card making a breeze! Contact me today to order your new punch. Have a great day!
Tomorrow night is the night Stampin’ Up! has designated as “eScape day” – a day to put away your mobile phones and laptops and focus on reconnecting with your “wireless network.” And tomorrow night, this is one of the cards we are making in my class! We will be making 4 other cards and a Bag-a-lope. You will be able to pack away all the cards you make on the night in your new Bag-a-lope! All this for the great price of $20. Let me know today if you can come along to Parklea. All are welcome 🙂
I’ll post some close ups of the Bag-a-lope after Wednesday, so keep watching this space 🙂
