Stampin' Up! Baroque Motifs on a Handbag card

Hi everyone
Today's card is a really simple card design using the Round Tab Punch and some Oval punches to create little handbags. You just fold the round tab in half and you get the perfect handbag shape!!
For this card I used the Stampin' Up! Raspberry Tart DSP but really any beautiful patterned DSP would do.
I also used the same colour ink applied to the cardstock...eg the Baroque Motifs swirl is inked with Rose Red and applied to Rose Red cardstock. It is a lovely subtle effect

I hope you like the card and have a try at making it. This card would also look great with the Mocha Morning Specialty Paper, Beau Chateau or Pocketful of Posies from the current Ideas Book & Catalogue....these papers are soooo gorgeous!!!
If you don't have these punches, stamp set or a luscious pack of Designer Series Paper (or anything at all really!!!), just give me a call or
email me and I'll get your order sent straight to your door.

Materials used:
Stamp sets - Baroque Motifs, One of a Kind (retired)
Ink - Rose Red, Pretty in Pink
Cardstock - Rose Red, Whisper White, Lucky Limeade, Pretty in Pink, Raspberry Tart DSP (retired)
Accessories - Pearls
Tools - sponges, Round Tab Punch, Oval Punches, dimensionals

Thank you for visiting!!

Swap card for Stampin' Up! Regional Training

Hello everyone
Thought I would share this card front that I made for the Stampin' Up! Brisbane Regionals that I'm attending this tomorrow.
It's my very first Stampin' Up! seminar where I hope to meet a tonne of like-minded craft nerds and learn some new Stampin' Up! techniques. If you have ever thought that you might like to surround yourself with creative, paper & stamp-obsessed people, then sign up as a demonstrator through me with Stampin' Up! now and you can come with me to the next one! :)

My card was inspired by this card by Adriana Benitez. I loved the combination of yellow and purple and the clean white spaces on her card. You can't see it in the photo, but the main circle panel is slightly elevated on a dimensional so it "hovers" above the card. I figured the "Just For You" sentiment could double as a birthday or a thank you card.

I made 30 of these to swap and I hope to get lots of new ideas from all the talented Stampin' Up! demonstrators that will be there tomorrow! :)

Materials used:
Stamps - Delicate Doilies, Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Ink - Concord Crush, Wisteria Wonder, Daffodil Delight, Sahara Sand
Cardstock - Concord Crush, Whisper White
Tools – sponges, 1 ¾ inch circle punch, Stamp-a-majig
Accessories – Stampin’ Dimensionals
