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!
