As I slowly build my collection of Stampin’ UP! products, and attend stamp-a-stacks at my (now upline) Michelle Scott’s house, I find there are so many new techniques to try! I found this purse template on Andrea Walford’s blog andreawalford.com and couldn’t wait to try it out – I really wanted to show my work colleague what I was so excited about (stampin’ up products) so I filled the purse with six blank cards with different sentiments that she could use at her leisure.
and a close up of the detail on the front – my first attempt at watercolouring unsupervised!
I then set about creating 6 cards that tied in together with theme and colour etc, but could be used for a variety of occasions:
I popped all the cards with their matching stamped envelopes inside the purse and wrapped it in a cellophane bag, tying off with ribbon:
I was really happy with the way this project turned out and can’t wait to give it to my friend as my first hand-made Christmas Gift. One of many I am sure!
