Stampin’ Up! Halloween Treat Petite Purses!

halloween purse treat boxes Remember the angry bird purse? – well, what about Halloween! These Halloween purses were inspired by projects created by Missi Roeber and featured in the September exclusive Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator magazine.

Each little purse has it’s own little personality and each started with the Big Shot and the Petite Purse Bigz Die.

Let’s start with Frankie!  I started by die cutting the Petite Purse Die in Lucky Limeade.  Then I used a white gel pen to trace the lid on the back side of black cardstock.  Then I hand trim his hair with Paper Snips  to fit over the lid.

The eyes were punched with circle punches and highlighted with white gel pen.  I punched the nose from the corner of a square punch.  Black Glimmer Brads were added for bolts and the mouth and stitching were hand drawn with a black Stampin’ Write Marker.  The edges of the box and the nose were sponged with black ink.

Jacko the Jack-O-Lantern is Tangerine Tango embossed with the Stripes Embossing Folder.   When you use the embossing folder on the purse, you’ll need to run it through twice, once for the front and once for the back, lining up the stripes with the bottom fold line of the purse.  After embossing, I sponged it with Tangerine Tango ink to bring out the stripes.  The mouth was created with the Extra-Large Oval Punch, punching out the ‘teeth’ with paper snips.  The eyes and nose were punched with the Petite Pennants Builder Punch and trimmed to size.

Batko the Halloween bat was created with the Petite Pennants Builder Punch and the Extra Large Oval Punch and the ¾” & ½” circle punches or his eyes.  To create his wings, I first punched two ovals  and then punched small circles from the bottom edges.   The wings are then adhered to the back of the purse.

Stampin’ Up! Field Flower Love

field flower love card angle “Navy Pacific Sand” – the Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge!  I used a few interesting techniques on this Field Flowers love card including brayering the embossing folder and creating faux washi tape.

I started by stamping the stems in Sahara Sand, then in Night of Navy which creates a bit of shadow.  The flower outlines were then stamped in Night of Navy with Sahara Sand shading.  I then cut this with the largest framelit from the Apothecary Accents framelits set.

I used Pacific Point to sponge the interior of the flower and the edges of the panel, then a lighter sponge throughout.  Then I used Dazzling Details to add some heavy glitter to the center of the flowers.

Before embossing the Sahara Sand card front, I brayered Sahara Sand on the embossing folder so when I ran it through the Big Shot it creates a contrasting shadow.  The Apothecary flower panel was attached to the card front.

The faux washi tape was created with scotch tape and International Bazaar Designer Series Paper.  This is a technique I learned at the Stampin’ Up! Chattanooga Regional event.  I taped a section of pattern paper then ‘washed off’ the back of the pattern paper until it appears clear.

Stampin’ Up! Moving Forward Flower Baskets

moving forward flower pots thinking of you angleThis cheery friendship card was inspired by a card from the Stampin’ Up! demonstrator magazine (get your copy when you join today for only $99) and features the Ronald McDonald House Charities Stamp Set, Moving Forward, as shown on the inside back cover of the Stampin’ Up! catalog.  When you purchase this set, $3 will be donated to charity.

    Moving Forward stamp set

The petite basket is actually from the cute bicycle image.  Using a Early Espresso Marker, I colored and stamped only the basket three times.  Using the same method I stamped ‘Thinking of You’.  And lastly using markers again, I colored the flowers and stamped them in the baskets.  This video demonstrates how to stamp with markers.

Once the images are stamped, I centered a Collection Labels framelit over it, secured it with post it notes and ran it through the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.  The tiniest Basic Jewels Pearls were added to the flower centers.

 The card base is 6″x6″ square of Pumpkin Pie card stock, folded in half to produce a 3″x6″ card.  Matching Polka Dot Parade paper was trimmed into a flag banner.  View Monday’s video to see how to easily create a flag end with a square punch.  Or view it here.

Primrose Petals Stitched Satin Ribbon was added down the right side and tied with bakers twine before the label was adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.   The Stitched Satin Ribbon is yummy.  Great colors, great look and fabulous to work with.  It’s super soft and pliable!  Love it!  And there’s no limit.  A free spool for EVERY $40 in ordered product.
