Purses and Pumps and Chocolate...Oh my!


It's a gloomy day here in So. Cal again so here is what I'd much rather be doing... shopping of course! The chocolate is just an added plus *wink* This would surely bring some sunshine to my soul today!


For this card I started with an 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" Whisper White piece of card stock. I then folded it in half so that I had a standard card base of 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". Next I stamped the phrase "things I love..." in Soft Suede ink. All the stamps on this card are from the set Things I Love. I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to ensure the perfect position for it. (HINT: The Stamp-A-Ma Jig really was essential because I needed the phase away from the left side so the bow wouldn't cover it. It really is a great tool to have.) The hearts were stamped in Melon Mambo ink. Next I placed a piece of textured Bermuday Bay card stock at the top with SNAIL Adhesive. A piece of Soft Suede card stock hides the seam where the Whisper White and Bermuda Bay meet.


The pump, purse, and chocolate image were stamped in Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo, and Soft Suede onto Whisper White card stock. They were then punched out with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch. These were adhered to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals to give them a bit of height.


A 1/2" Melon Mambo Polka Dotted Grosgrain Ribbon completed the "look". (This particular ribbon is only available in Stampin' Up!s IN COLORS so it coordintes perfectly!)

And you can't have a completely
selfish card now, so on the inside I added this sentiment (also in the set) in Soft Suede ink. I don't know any
gal that wouldn't be floored to receive this. *Don't forget to leave a comment on the giveaway post at the top of my blog. Monday we will reveal the winner.
