Stampin Up Paper Purse and Cards – Gingham Garden DSP

I have a cutie for you today; a Stampin Up Paper Purse and matching cards made with the  new Gingham Garden Designer Series Paper (129310).  I have noticed a lot of up-scale stores offering pink purses, so I decided the Gingham Garden DSP would be perfect for this Stampin Up Paper Purse.

  Stampin Up Paper Purse Gingham Garden DSP

The design for this paper purse is one that I developed back in 2011. You can see that purse here.

These are the three 3″ x 3″ “Thank You” greeting cards with matching envelopes.  The cards match the Stampin Up Paper Purse.

This picture is of the Stampin Up Paper Purse’s fastener that is made with the Daffodil Delight and floral design from the Gingham Garden DSP.  (Personally, I think the color is closer to So Saffron.)  I used a paper piercer around the edges of the fastener and stitched  a blue embroidery thread around it.  I topped it off with a Spring Catalog Designer Builder Brad.  Attached to that brad is a Midnight Muse In Color Dahlia (127556).

Stampin Up Paper Purse and Cards - Gingham Garden DSPTo the right is a picture of the back of the purse.  You can see the back of the fastener as well as the two side embellishments that extend to the front.  They are made with the Daffodil Delight and floral design from the Gingham Garden DSP and Primrose Petals In Color Dahlias.

The 3″ x 3″ matching “Thank You” greeting cards fit perfectly into the opening of the purse.  I made three of the cards; however, I could easily fit six inside the Stampin Up Paper Purse.

This card features the new Gingham Garden Designer Washi Tape (129314).  I’ve not used washi tape before, and I must say I really like Stampin’ Up!’s.   Also featured are flowers from the Stampin’ Up!’s Boho Blossoms Punch (119858).

The primary features on this card are the Gingham Garden Designer Series Paper and the Boho Blossoms Punch flowers.

Easter Basket With Blown Eggs – Stampin’ Up!

Easter Basket With Blown Eggs - Stampin' UpMy art project today is an Easter Basket with Blown Eggs that were decorated.

The Easter Basket was made with the retired Bigz Scallop Envelope Die.  I cut out four of the envelopes from Stampin’ Up! Daffodill Delight Card Stock.  Using Stampin’ Up! Sticky Strip, I adhered one envelope to another until all four sides were formed.

The sides of the Easter Basket with Blown Eggs were decorated with flowers made with the Stampin’ Up! Mixed Bunch Stamp Set, Blossom Punch, Designer Builder Brads, Bashful Blue Card Stock, and Melon Mambo Card Stock.

Easter Basket With Blown EggsHave you ever blown eggs?  If not and you want to learn, follow these instruction.  You will need raw eggs (not boiled) that are not cracked or boiled.

Wash your eggs well. Carefully poke a small hole in each pointed end of the raw egg.  (The Stampin’ Up! Paper-Piercing Tool worked great for poking the holes.)  Hold the egg over a bowl and blow into one of the holes. The egg liquid should slowly come out the other hole. (Sometimes this is a big job, and kids should get an adult’s help and permission before trying this.)  Once the egg shell is empty, rinse it off (inside and outside) and set it aside to dry.  I set mine upright so any liquid would drain from the inside.

   Easter Basket With Blown Eggs - Stampin' Up!

Now the fun begins!! 

Because an egg shell is non-porous and, thus, won’t absorb ink and certain paints well, I used Folk Art Acrylic Paint and a sponge to paint the eggs.  You can find this paint at any craft store.  I found that acrylic paint with glitter or metallic paint, as well as the Stampin’ Up! Reinkers, would not cover the shells.  Believe it or not, the reinkers left a very pale color but didn’t cover well at all.  I tried the reinkers as I was curious about using them.  Anyway, you may want to consider this when selecting your form of color for the eggs.

Easter Basket With Blown Eggs - Stampin' Up!

Next, decorate the eggs to your heart’s desire.  As you can see, I created a bunny, chicken, and decorated egg with flowers and some tangling (Zentangle).  I used Stampin’ Up! Card Stock to create elements (e.g., eyes, ears, wings, feet) of both the bunny and chicken.  If you look closely in the above picture, you can see the feet of both of them.

Stampin Up More Amore DSP Valentine Purse

Today I am sharing how to make this beautiful Stampin Up More Amore DSP Valentine Purse!  I made this for my granddaughter, and I am sure she will be delighted when she receives it on Valentine’s Day!


SUPPLIES USED TO MAKE THE STAMPIN UP MORE AMORE DSP VALENTINE PURSE

Paper:  Stampin Up More Amore DSP (129309), Pool Party Card Stock, Primrose Petals Card Ctock, and Certainly Celery Card Stock

Ink:  Primrose Petals Classic Ink

Accessories:  Hearts Collection Framelits (125599); Big Shot, Platform, and Cutting Plates; Sticky Strip or Adhesive of your choice; Ribbon of your choice, and Brads of your choice


INSTRUCTIONS FOR MAKING THE STAMPIN UP MORE AMORE DSP VALENTINE PURSE

  • Using the Big Shot and Hearts Collection Framelit (Scalloped), cut out two Pool Party hearts.
  • Cut out two hearts from the Stampin Up More Amore DSP with the next to the largest heart framelit

  • Attach the DSP hearts to the Pool Party hearts and add ribbon around the edges of each.

  • Cut an 8-1/4″ x 2″ piece of Pool Party Card Stock and score it along the 8-1/4″ side at the 1/4″ and 1-1/2″ marks.
  • Place one end of the card stock between your thumb and index finger and hold it.  Now place the card stock between your opposite thumb and index finger and begin to curl the card stock by repeatedly moving your thumb and finger down the 8-1/4″ length of the card stock.  This will make the card stock more pliable and it will curl up into a half-circle.
  • Cut notches along the 1/4″ and 1-1/2″ scored sides of the card stock.

  • Use the next to the largest heart framelit and trace around it with a pencil on the back side of both heart pieces.  Make sure the heart framelit is placed on both hearts at the same spot.

  •  Attach Sticky Strip to each heart along the pencil tracing.

  • Remove the red liner from the Sticky Strip and begin attaching one side of the 8-1/4″ notched piece of Pool Party Card Stock to one of the hearts.  Assure both ends will line up evenly.

  • Select a DSP design that you want to be the purse liner and trace the outer rim of the next- to-the-largest-heart framelit onto this DSP twice.
  • Cut out both hearts and insert one into the purse and press it down to adhere it, as shown in the below picture.  At this point you may be thinking, “Wouldn’t it have being easier to add this before the purse side piece was added?”  Yes, however, the notched portion of the 8-1/4″ piece of card stock would not be covered up if the heart were added first.

  • Begin attaching the second heart to the first heart by lining it up with the edge of the other notched side of the heart and begin adhering it..

  •  Just as before, Insert the second DSP heart inside  and press it down to adhere it.  You now have the bottom of the purse made.

  • Attach to the purse sides a handle made of the ribbon that was used around the front and back of the purse.  Use hot glue to attach.
  • Select two medium to large brads, remove their prongs, and attach to the ends of the ribbon with hot glue.  I used two of Stampin Up epoxy brads from long ago.

  •   Decorate the purse front as desired.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR MAKING THE STAMPIN UP PURSE CARD DESIGN:

  • Click HERE for the “Purse Card Template” 

If you have difficulty retrieving the template, here’s a picture that you can work from:

Picture of the Purse Card Template

 CARD BASE

  • Score the center of an 8-1/2″ x 11″ piece of Basic Black Card Stock and fold it.
  • Place the template over the folded card stock with the fold at the bottom (use a temporary adhesive to prevent the template from moving).  Using the Simply Scored Stylus and with pressure, trace the purse from below the handles (at the 5″ mark) to the bottom including the sides.

Stampin Up Purse Card Design

  •  Remove the template and cut along the traced lines.

Stampin Up Purse Card DesignStampin Up Purse Card Design

CARD HANDLES:

  • Fold a piece of 4″ x 7″ scrap Basic Black Card Stock and place the handle portion of the template over it with the folded part at the top (you’ll cut out two handles and you don’t want them connected).  So you have 1/4″ extra on the ends of the handles to adhere to the purse card base, lay the template about 1/4″ above the bottom of the folded card stock.
  • Using the Simply Scored Stylus and with pressure, trace around the handle of the template.
  • Cut out the handles following the traced lines.

Purse HandlesPurse Handles

  • Cover one side of the handles with Crystal Effects and let dry.
  • After drying, cover the other side of the handles with Crystal Effects and let dry.
  • Attached the handles to the inside of the purse card base with Sticky Strip after completing the following.

CARD EMBELLISHMENTS:

  • Lay the template onto the Mocha Morning Designer Series Paper (again, this project is organic, so other DSP can be used) and trace the inside lines around the purse card.  Cut around the traced lines.  Use the cut out for your template to cut a second piece of the Mocha Morning Designer Series Paper.  You will have one piece for the front of the purse card and one for the back.  Ensure the pieces are about 1/8″ smaller than the purse card base.
  • Cut 1/4″ off the top of these two pieces.

Purse Front and Back Pieces

  • Using the Bigz Clear Large Scallop Square Die, cut out two Cherry Cobbler large scallops.
  • Insert each scallop into the Elegant Bouquet Embossing Folder and run through the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.
  • OPTIONAL:  Swipe one scallop with the embossing buddy and, with a VersaMarker Watermarker Pen, carefully apply VersaMark on the raised portions of the scallop.  Apply Black Embossing Powder and set with a heat gun.  It’s best to do a small section of the raised portions at a time. (This isn’t an easy task and it’s difficult to not get specks of powder where you don’t want it.)

Card Embellishment

  • Lay the Mocha Morning Designer Series Paper purse front over back side of the embossed scallop, line it up just below the center of the top embossed flower, and draw a line with a pencil across the scallop.  Trace with the pencil about 1″ down the two sides of the purse front.  Cut along these penciled lines.  Repeat for the purse back.

Purse Embellishmen tPurse Embellishment

  • Trace the purse back DSP piece onto Very Vanilla Card Stock, trace around the piece, and cut it out.

Stampin Up Purse Card Design

  • Cover with Cherry Cobbler ink the sentiment “Happy Birthday” from the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set onto a piece of Very Vanilla Card Stock.
  • Use the appropriate Bitty Banners Framelit to cut out the sentiment.  Sit to the side.

CARD FLOWER:

 

CARD ASSEMBLY:

  • FRONT AND BACK DSP PIECES:  Adhere with Sticky Strip the DSP front piece to the front of the card base, placing it 1/4″ down from top card base showing.  Repeat for the back side of the card base.

Stampin Up Purse Card Design

  • HANDLES:  Draw a light pencil line on the left inside of the card base, 1/2″ from the top.  Place sticky strip on the card base from the top down to the 1/2″ pencil line, ensuring that the tape is no wider than the bottom of the handle ends.  Remove the red liner and adhere the handle to the card base.  Erase the pencil line.  Repeat this to adhere the other handle to the right inside of the card base.

  • This picture shows how it should look:
  • INSIDE CARD:  Adhere the Very Vanilla Card Stock inside the card on the right side, placing it over the handle.

Stampin Up Purse Card Design

  • At this point the card will look like this:

Stampin Up Purse Card Design

  • OUTSIDE CARD EMBELLISHMENTS:
  • Punch a hole at the top of the “happy birthday” sentiment.
  • Thread a piece of Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine throw the hole.
  • Wrap the twine around the prongs of the antique brad that was used for the tulle ribbon flower.
  • Punch a hole 1-1/2″ down from the top center of the Cherry Cobbler Black Embossed Large Scallop piece.

Stampin Up Purse Card Design

  • Insert the brad that is holding the tulle ribbon flower and baker’s twine into the hole and spread the prongs.

Stampin Up Purse Card Design

  • Attach this to the top of the card front. (You may want to use a glue dot to attach the end of the sentiment to the card front.)

Stampin Up Purse Card Design

  •  Attach the second Cherry Cobbler Embossed Large Scallop piece to the back side of the card.
