Welcome to another inspirational blog hop. Some very talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators have put together a bunch of wonderful projects to inspire you to stamp, stamp, stamp! (As if you needed an excuse!) There are 11 beautiful projects for you to feast your eyes on as you hop your way around the circle. Di Dunk owns the blog before mine in the hop - her creations are always amazing!
My project uses a stamp from the Punch Bunch set. Totally loving the way every image matches a punch as it makes cutting out a breeze! Anyway, here's my creation.
I decided to go 3D for this hop so I made a cute little purse using the For You stamp as a tag on the front. Isn't the Sweet and Sour Speciality DSP wonderful? It is a heavier weight than our regular DSP so it is perfect for 3D projects, and the gloss on some of the patterns is gorgeous.
I also decided to make a little set of 5 cards to match the purse. They all use the same stamp and DSP and are sized at 3 1/2" square to fit inside the purse. I also made envelopes but forgot to photograph them. Oops!
Here's a closer look at one of the cards. A simple design - I just stamped the image in Pumpkin Pie and again in Rose Red and then punched them with the Scallop Circle or 1 1/4" Circle punches to give a two colour image. A dimensional between the two layers for a bit of pop, a piece of ribbon and it's done! The tag on the purse was made the same way.
