Summer Smooches Petite Purse

Starting April 1, Stampin' Up! is offering a promotion for Summer Smooches which is products that will be in the 2012-2013 Catalog that they can purchase before the catalog arrives June 1.  As a demo, I was able to preorder a month earlier and this little Petite Purse for the Big Shot is one of the items that can be ordered as well as the Summer Smooches DSP I used for my little purse.  The basic purse is Island Indigo.  The Summer Smooches DSP has Daffodil Delight, Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, Lucky Limeade, Island Indigo, Tangerine Tango and Rich Razzleberry.  I attached the handle using mini brads and I used the Boho Punch on Daffodil Delight card stock for the closure and inserted a mini brad.  The little purse is about 2" wide and with the handle stands about 2 3/4 inches tall.  It will hold lots of treats for someone special and makes a nice little gift.

Valentine Holder - P.S. I Love You

It's been a while since I've posted or stamped for that matter.  My husband had surgery last month and I've been taking care of him and putting my stamping on hold for awhile.  However, I do have some things I stamped in February that I will post.  This is another Valentine holder that I made using the Scallop Envelope Die.  I cut out two of them using the Blushing Bride cardstock and trimmed off an inch on the bottom of one and used Snail adhesive to put the holder together.  I also used the 1/2" Stitched-Poly Blushing Bride Ribbon, the Modern Label and Full Heart Punch.   I used Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslit Die using Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  The embossed hearts are from using the new hearts  Embossing Folder Adorning Accents.
