Birthday Bag in a Box

I was really inspired by my Secret Santa gift from Rachel Jackson before Christmas.   In case you didn’t see her gift, click on this link to see her wonderful creation.  I loved it so much, I made a copy of it for a birthday gift, which you can see below.  And for another birthday gift, I made a taller version using SU’s Lap of Luxury Designer Series Paper.

For both boxes I used Basic Black textured paper and the stamp set Well Scripted (only available in the current Summer Mini until 31 March 2011) for the sentiment.  I also used a vintage brad on each sentiment and the Round Tab punch to tie on the Basic Black Satin Ribbon at the top.

For the sentiment tag on the Lap of Luxury Bag in a Box, I also used a scrap leftover from my sister’s wedding invitations.  So it was already embossed with the Big Shot and the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder.  And I sponged the edges of the tag with Concord Crush and sprayed it with my new Gold Glow Smooch Spritz – which I adore!  Here is a close-up of the sentiment.

For the other box, I used, of course, the same paper as Rachel – Love Letter DSP with a Very Vanilla tag, which I had sponged the edges with in Basic Black.

Dress Up Christmas

This is one of the cards I made using the Welcome Christmas Bundle.  Such a simple Christmas card idea!  I used the colours Whisper White and Real Red, Cocoa Specialty DSP (and boy is it yummy!) and one of the Mistletoe Ribbon Originals.  The sentiment is stamped in Real Red and is from Teeny Tiny Sentiments.

Bella Rose Purse

It was my sister’s birthday on the 17th (just gone) and I had made this purse for her gift.  Lee lives on the Gold Coast, so she doesn’t see us very often and I thought a couple of pictures of us would be nice for her to have.  So I spied this bag on the net made by Gretchen Barron (thanks for the super inspiration!!) and I then altered the measurements of the purse to fit my photos.  The purse, or handbag, was perfect for my sister as she loves bags!

I used textured cardstock for the entire card, except for the Bella Rose Designer Series Paper and the thin panels on the inside of the purse.  The paper colours are Basic Black, Pink Pirouette and Whisper White.

The stamp set I used is a Rose is a Rose and it was stamped using Pink Pirouette, Rose Red, Old Olive and Kiwi Kiss.  The coordinating wheel, Bella’s Border was used on the thin panels.  Of course, the coordinating Pink Pirouette striped grosgrain ribbon worked perfectly for the handle and the Kiwi Kiss satin ribbon on the front of the purse coordinated with the rose leaves inside the purse.

The Eyelet Border punch helped layer the photos and decorate the front of the purse.  Plus, the other punches I used to layer the two sentiments to the purse were the Scallop Circle, Designer Label, Large Oval,  Oval and Scallop Oval.

The sentiment stamp sets I used were Sincere Salutations and Short & Sweet.  A rhinestone brad and Pink Flower Designer brad helped decorate the sentiments.  And, for the final decorations, on the front of the purse I used a Button Bouquet Designer Button and a gorgeous Stampin’ Up! clip at the top of the purse.  And I paper pierced the strip of Textured Pink Pirouette cardstock.

Embossing on Designer Series Paper

The latest issue of Impressions (for Stampin’ Up! demos) has this really cool technique … embossing on Designer Series Paper.  I have changed the colour combo, slightly, from that in Impressions, but otherwise this is a cased card!

This card is made with the stamp set Baroque Motifs.  I’ve stamped the big swirly stamp in Versamark and then embossed it with white powder on the DSP from the Simply Scrappin Kit, Sweet Slumber.   The flowers are stamped in Tangerine Tango and cut out, and the cherish is stamped in Chocolate Chip.
