Have an irregular edge that needs a scalloped border? Like on the little edge of the Petite Purse Die front flap? (see it online) Try using your circle punches to make the curve for you. Just punch several circles (shown are ¾” circles) and attach them to the edge on the back side. You can also cover up the back side with another piece of card stock.
The Bright Blossoms stamp set is a perfect match for the Summer Smooches Product Suite (see it online). I used it on the little tags here (yup, Decorative Label Punch to make these).
Marker to Stamp Technique: To make the multi-colors, ink your stamp with a Stampin’ Write Marker or two or three. When all the colors are on the stamp, THEN apply the stamp to your card stock. Voila! (see some other Marker to Stamp projects on my blog)
And yes, remember I’ve been calling this little purse the Mary Poppins Purse, since it seems bigger on the inside than the outside. So yes, all three tags & candies do fit inside.
Have fun with these little treats & tags! Give the whole package as a gift, or carry the purse around with you and hand out little candies to people you see during the day. With the greetings from You’re A Gem (check out some other samples) they’re perfect little “just thinking of you” treats.
You remember that scene from Mary Poppins, where she opens her carpetbag and starts pulling belongings out? And keeps pulling…and keeps pulling…? Well the little Petite Purse Bigz Die (see it online) is going to be known as the Mary Poppins Purse Die on my blog.
I thought this little purse was going to be too tiny to fit much of anything… okay, maybe 3 Hershey’s Kisses. But guess what? It fits TEN (yes, 10!)! And it’s a small die!
Maybe I’m getting a bit over excited here, but you might have noticed on my blog that I’m a big fan of cute little projects that include candy. Because I think stamping is fun, but stamping with chocolate is BETTER. So a little die that makes a perfect candy-sized purse is going to rate high in my book. (see some other candy projects on my blog)
I’m hearing that you’re going to need this one, too, so don’t forget that you’ll have to order it in April, because if you miss it in April, you’ll have to wait <<sniff, sniff>> until the new catalog comes out on June 1st.
Oh, same goes for the Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper (see it online). And don’t miss the Summer Smooches Fabric Designer Brads (see them online), because the brads WON’T be in the new catalog — they’re only available this month. I ordered 2 boxes. (here are some other Summer Smooches projects on my blog!)
I don’t know about where you live, but here, SUMMER was here yesterday! I couldn’t believe the heat wave in the afternoon, and I think we’ve already mowed the grass 3 times this year. Sunny days make me think of sunny stamping, so here is the First Card of Summer to share with you, using the Bright Blossoms stamp set (see it online) that will be available only in April, and then again when the new catalog debuts on June 1st.
The card base is actually 5-3/8″ x 5-3/8″, so it’s a little bigger than normal. Fortunately, Stampin’ Up! carries gorgeous Whisper White Envelopes in a medium square size (see them here). Just remember that it will cost an extra $0.20 to mail these, since they have to be hand canceled. Oh, and with the brad, well, it’s going to be that $0.20 extra anyway.
The stamp set is one of the items on the Summer Smooches Sneak Peek, available in April (browse it online). The Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper definitely brings summer to my mind.
The flowers in the Bright Blossoms stamp set are a lot of fun — think Stampin’ Write Markers and use the Marker-to-Stamp technique to add multi-colors to your stamping projects.
Can you see the brad close up on this card? I’m a huge fan of these — they are Fabric Covered Designer Brads (see them online) that match the colors in the Summer Smooches Suite.
Finally, this card has a Vellum Card Stock layer (see it online) that is attached behind the designer paper. Vellum is a great way to add interest or to add a feeling of lightness to a project.
If you’re looking for the items in the Product Suite, here’s a list:
Are you looking forward to summer? Would you like a Sneak Peek of one of the NEW Product Suites that will be in the new big catalog when it debuts on June 1st?
The Summer Smooches Product Suite is available during April only, to help you get a head start on your summer fun stamping. Here are some of the products you can get (click for a larger image):
I’ve had fun playing with these products! Be sure to especially check out the little Petite Purse Die for the Big Shot. It’s a sweet little die cut — to get an idea of the size, think about putting 3 little Hershey’s Treasures inside. Perfect size for wedding or baby or shower favors!
