I Love Purses!

I DO love purses-- they are one of my favorite things to shop for! I decided to make a quick card for today's sketch challenge over at Splitcoaststampers. You can find the challenge here.

This was pretty easy as the only stamping that I did was the "Thanks!" I used Stampin' Up's Many Thanks for this sentiment, stamping it with Versafine Black Onyx ink.

I used Amy Butler's Lotus Designer Mat Pad, along with Amy Butler's Grand Adhesions purse and flower stickers. Both are K and Company, I purchased both from Michael's.

Here is another purse that I created on my own, using punches and decorator paper.

The papers used here are Basic Grey Stella, SU Barely Banana and Chocolate Chip. I used my cuttlebug and textured folder on the chocolate, along with a ticket corner punch on the corners. I used two size circle punches for the purse handle, and a corner rounder punch to create the bag and flap.

Hope your day is going great! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hey. Did you know that your surname is Finnish. Do you have family in Finland?

Deborah Saaranen said...

I wanted to respond to the comment about my Finnish name; I will do so in my next post as well.

Yes, my husband (Paul Saaranen) and I are both of Finnish descent; we both have families in Finland and have visited there numerous times. We love Suomi!
