Dressed to Impress Cards and Purse

I have been playing with the Dressed to Impress Bundle from the new Stampin' Up! January-June Mini Catalog to start off the new year.
There are so many cute things in this new catalog!! So this is just the first of many cute things to follow!  Plus- Salabration is happening!!  Which means free items with every $50 purchase!!
This Best Dressed Suite of products has some beautiful Designer series paper with soft florals and some stylish accessories.
 I paired up Petal Pink and Pear Pizzaz Card stock with this pretty floral paper from the Best Dressed 6X6 DSP for this first card. Running the Pear Pizzaaz layer thru the big shot with the  Tufted 3D Embossing folder gave that layer a little dimension. A piece of vellum cut with the Stitched Nested Label Dies softens the back ground of the Petal Pink Die cuts of the shoe, perfume bottle and the little rose. I used Dimensionals to pop up both my vellum layer and my die cuts.


 If you follow me, you know that I am a fan of the 3D favor type dies and I could not resist this adorable purse die that comes in the Dressed to Impress Bundle - it is the All Dressed Up Dies.  The purse goes together pretty easily with out much instructions needed.  I have seen several different variations on how to attach the handles.  Just remember to use your bone folder to condition the cardstock so that it can bend easier. I used Heather Heather cardstock, cut with the dies and then I ran it through the same Tufted 3d Embossing folder as the card above. I used Silver Foil for the buckles and buttons. I just tucked some small scrap pieces in the pocket for some contrast, so you could see the pocket better in the photos.
For the perfume card:
  • the base is Basic Black Cardstock measures  7 3/4" X  5 1/2"  and scored at  3 1/2"  so that the back of the card is longer than the front forming column down the side of the card 
  •  layer of the pretty purple floral DSP measures 3 1/4" X 5 1/4 " 
  •  silver square from the Silver Foil Sheets with the 2nd largest square Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies  
  • I stamped the perfume bottle , several roses and the sentiment  on Purple Posey CardStock with black ink and cut them with the dies in the bundle.
  • I stamped several roses on Highland Heather with black ink and cut them with the dies.
  • Inside the card is a   3 1/4" X  5 1/4" piece of Whisper White Card stock for stamping any sentiment on.
  • Once I adhered the white inside of the card in - I lined up the die cut roses along the edge that shows when the card is closed and adhered them with liquid glue.
  • I used the newWhisper White 1/4" Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon which is found on page 25 in the new Mini Catalog (with the Poppies Suite) Placing this across the purple layer before I adhered it to the black layer so that I could tuck the ends under the purple layer.  I tied a double bow and adhered that with a glue dot. 
  • the perfume bottle and the sentiment were popped up with Dimensionals.
  • added a few Basic Rhinestones just for a bit of extra glam
I hope you like these two cards and the adorable purse!
I have a retreat coming up in which I need to do a favor for each of the girls - So I think I will be making more of these purses! I feel some lipstick cards in my future as well!
As I mentioned in the top of this post - Stampin' Up! is celebrating their best sale of the year - Sale -a Bration.  I have links to both the new Mini Catalog and the Sale-A Bration catalog on my side bar.
Click on these to delve into all of the new offerings in the Mini Catalog.  Then when you are done drooling over that catalog - click on the Sale-A Bration Catalog to see what you can get for free with every $50 order - there are also a few dies and bunches that are free with a $100 order.  This is truly the best time to shop.  These Sale-a -Bration items sometimes sell out - so be sure to order early.
In fact, I am predicting that the cute Bee paper in will go quickly!!!

You can shop in my online store 24/7 by just clicking on the store front.  If you order more that $35 worth of products and you use my January Hostess Code - I will send you a sampler of some of the new Designer Series papers from the Mini Catalog in the form of 6X6 pieces. 
Happy Shopping!!

In the past few years my interests have grown from fabric to paper and now to dishes too! I just love prints, polkadots, plaids and paisleys- hence the blog name.
