My first 3D Project (and my first blog!)

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  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.  


3D project 1 Purse

Here is the purse


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:  

Card 1 Happy Birthday - I took my inspiration from a patchwork card in the current Stampin UP! catalogue 2009-2010


Card 2 - Embrace Life


Card 3 - So Kind


Card 4 - more kindness!


Card 5 - Happy Birthday



and Card 6 - thank you


I popped all the cards with their matching stamped envelopes inside the purse and wrapped it in a cellophane bag, tying off with ribbon:  


And now the finished project, wrapped in Cellophane with a Gift Tag attached: 

  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!

One thought on “My first 3D Project (and my first blog!)

  1. This card purse is beautiful! It’s lovely to see the cards up close, because they were all wrapped up when I came past and saw them! I love the way you have used the Embrace Life & Parisian Breeze DSP – they go together beautifully!

    Great work on the blog! It looks fantastic and I can’t wait to check back for more!
