Stamp Club Project, Card Purse

Check out the project my Club Gal’s did yesterday. I found this pattern on Julie’s Paper Pleasing Idea blog. We used the DSP, ribbon & stamp sets from Sale-a-bration which are all free. (Free item from the Sale-a-bration catalog for every $50 you spend). Click on the photos to see them better. We also used the Texturz Plates and Emblosslits from Sizzix on the cards. The Girl’s made 4 cards with envelopes that fit inside the purse. This would make such a cute Easter, Mother’s Day, or Just Because gift. 

Sizzix Texturz Plates

On another Sizzix note; I’t been reading a lot about the Texturz Plates. Many people have said if you spritz your c/s with rubbing alcohol before running it though the Big Shot you get a deeper impression. So I decided to try it. And you know what? It worked. So I made a sample of each one,  both sides, using the In Colors for my card stock, punched a whole in the corner using my Crop-a-Dile (CAD) and added a ring to keep them together (thanks to Patty Bennett for that great idea). So now I can look at each design to decide which one I want to use on my project.  If you click on the photo, you can see the different patterns.

Movers & Shapers Curly Label die

Can I tell you that I love this die? The curly label actually is a perfect mat for the Curly Label punch., Yeah! I also used (for the first time) the yummy Parisian Breeze Specialty DSP. These designer papers are so awesome, a little thicker than the textured card stock. Then I stamped a flower from the Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set and cut it out. Love this new stamp set too! Added some ribbon, and of course I sponged around the whole card with Baja Breeze. The little flower on the Curly Label is from Itty Bitty Buds, level one hostess set. So many new products in one little card. I wanted to add more, but sometimes, “less is more” if you know what I mean.
