Inspired by Stampin’ Tips for my purse:

  • I wish I could say that I created this beautiful purse idea myself but I didn’t. Click here to go to SplitCoastStampers to find the On-line tutorial for this lovely purse.
  • My colors today are Real Red, So Saffron, & Baja Breeze with the gorgeous Greenhouse Gala Designer Series Paper.
  • I used Stampin’ Up! Markers to create the image from the Watercolor Trio Stamp Set.
  • The sentiment also comes from this lovely stamp set. You can find this stamp set in the Summer Catalog. CLICK HERE to view the catalog.
  • Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon created my handles for my purse and were secured with Chocolate Chip Brads.

What’s inside this great little purse?…Well I created lots of 4×4 cards with two different sentiments.


Inspired by Stampin’ Tips for the Card:

  • So Saffron and Baja Breeze Card Stock cut to 4×4 gave me the perfect card size to fit inside my purse.
  • Fancy Flower Punch and a 1” circle punch created these adorable flowers for the center of my card.
  • Watercolor Trio Sentiment wins again and goes with my theme for my card/purse design.
