Winter Bling Bling Baby...


Another project using Lizzie Anne Design's Christmas in The City stamp set. The little purse is made with my Cricut machine and the Tags, Bags, Boxes and More Cartridge. There is lip balm inside along with some little candies. I love the little purse!! (You can click on the photo for a larger view).

The card base is Blue Bayou (0ne of the new IN colors from SU!). There is a layer of Regal Rose cs, then Chatterbox designer paper. The dots on the bottom and the scallops are the reverse side. I just LOVE double sided designer papers!!! The images are stamped on Stampin'Up!'s Shimmery white card stock (my favorite) then punched out with my 1/14 inch circle punch, layered on Regal Rose punched with the 1 3/8 circle punch, then all on top of the circle scallop punch. I also used the new photo corner punch for the corner. I layered the small one on another small one in Regal Rose, then layered on the bigger corner piece. The ribbon is from Micheals (Thanks Pam!). The little round jewels (bling bling baby) are from eP. Yes, I sewed across the bottom there... I was having withdrawals from my little Sew Mini. :) I feel better now.

On the purse closure, I used a round rhinestone brad from SU! for the center of the snowflake. The blue matches nicely.

If you have a Scor-Pal, it makes scoring the boxes from the Cricut a breeze. The machine leaves little marks where you score, so just line them up in a grove and SHAZAM, you are done. I love my Scor-Pal.


Can you tell I'm into paper piecing lately? That's how I did the snowman above (see the scarf and the hat?) and the little hot chocolate cup. It's so much fun, and so easy. Just stamp your image on your card stock, then stamp it again on designer paper. Cut out the image on the designer paper and then adhere it over the top of the image you stamped on the card stock.

I used this embossing folder through the Cuttlebug after I stamped the snowflake with Craft Whisper White ink. I then took my Sakura Gelly Roll Black Glaze pen and went over the hot chocolate letters. It's so shiny and cool in person, you just have to touch it. Totally looks embossed. LOVE those pens!! The Regal Rose 5/8" ribbon is sewn on across the bottom. The card stock used for this card are Regal Rose, Purely Pomegranate, Almost Amethyst, Shimmery White, and Basic Black, all from Stampin'Up!.

I think I'm catching up. If you've emailed me and I haven't answered yet, I haven't forgot about yah. The kids start school on the 5th and hopefully, by then, I'll be caught up on laundry. Good thing they have new socks and undies for school and aren't counting on that huh? LOL.

Have a great weekend everyone!! Thanks for stopping by!
