You Can Never Have Too Many Purses

Last week I posted some purses and cards I made with the Everything is Rosy Product Medley (as well as a special offer)! If you missed that post, you can view it HERE. I have been making a bunch of those purses because, after all, you can never have too many purses right?! This time I created some purses with cardstock instead of DSP.

I used two different embossing folders on these and love them both! Luckily, the Parisian Flourish embossing folders is sticking around for awhile; however, the 3D Tufted Embossing Folder is retiring and is AWSL.  I couldn’t resist making a fancy purse with pearls on the tufted one!  Navy and white is such a classic purse!

I love these little pockets you can add to them too! It’s like an added little surprise when you tuck a little note in the purse pocket.

The reason I am on such a roll making purses is because I have been having a little fun during this pandemic….when I just NEED to get out, my husband, daughter, and I drive around dropping off surprises in mailboxes. We grab the Clorox wipes & gloves and it has turned in to a fun little family activity. I just love bringing smiles to others.  I want to see how many I can make for Mother’s Day surprises. I am filling them with Ghirardelli chocolates, a note card, and these adorable lipstick pens I bought from Amazon. (Boy do I love online shopping now more than ever!!!) The 3 x 9 Printed Gusseted Cellophane Bags are the finishing touch to wrap it all up for a pretty presentation.

I can see making these purses for birthdays, wedding showers, and hostess gifts throughout the year. These can hold five 3 x 3 note cards & envelopes and would be a nice little gift for someone. You can also tuck in a gift card! The All Dressed Up Dies really are a good investment. You don’t have to buy the bundle, you can just get the dies. (I do own both and really like the sentiments and flowers in the stamp set. It’s great for sending cards to girly girls!) I feel like I’ve already got my money’s worth with all the gifts I’ve made for Mother’s Day! Here’s a look at what’s included in the set.

Stampin' Up! Dressed To Impress Bundle - for inspiration and ordering information, visit juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

You can cut 4 of the buckles at once because they include 2 dies.  Same for the buttons. You do need to cut 2 of the purse; however, if you use DSP you can cut both at once and it still does a great job with scoring and stitching. You will need to cut twice if you use cardstock though. They really go together fast. Just fold on the score lines, add Tear & tape or Liquid glue to secure the sides and bottom and you’re done.  If you purchase the dies I will be happy to send you my photo tutorial how to put the purse together.

Each month I offer my Just Stampin’ Card Kit and 3D Project Buffet to Go. It includes 3 cards (1 is always a fun fold) and a 3D project.  I sent out the April kits last week and my 3D project was (I bet you already guessed!) the purse kit with the All Dressed Up Designer Series Paper. I love the way you can see both sides of the paper with these purses.  The pattern on the inside looks like you lined these special purses.

I even included a BONUS card last month to go with the purses. You just have to stamp your own sentiment….everything else is included!

The Best Dressed 3 x 3 note cards & envelopes are also retiring and they are now 1/2 price! You get a set of 24 cards & envelopes for only $4!!

I ordered more of these note cards and plan to decorate them for the nursing home residents. My friend is a nurse and says they just love getting cards especially now that they can’t have visitors.

I’ll be posting information about ordering my May “Just Stampin’ Card Kit and 3D Project Buffet to Go” this week so be sure to check back. I take pride in packaging everything so it arrives safely and makes crafting easy for you! You get the tutorials with the purchase of the kit so you can always make more if you want.  It’s a great resource of ideas to have.  You can just change the paper and sentiment and you have a whole new card!

Stampin Up Touches of Texture and Perennial Birthday embossed Birthday card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I love to make birthday cards! Several friends have birthdays this month so I decided to make a birthday card for card club this month. I used one of my favorite color combinations, yellow and black.  What’s funny is without even realizing it I wore a pair of yellow capris with a black top to card club.  One of the ladies pointed out I “matched my card”.  LOL

The floral image is from the Touches of Texture Stamp Set. Stampin Up Touches of Texture Stamp set - visit juststampin.com to order Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This set of 15 images feature an eclectic array of useful and fun styles which are great for focal points or backgrounds. The textures and elements in this stamp set will add dimension and character to any of your cards.

I always like to give several options for sentiments to my card club members and this month I also shared several different embossing folder options.Stampin Up Touches of Texture embossed Birthday card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love embossing folders! They are such a quick & easy (and inexpensive!) way to add texture and dimension. You really get a big bang for your buck. I like to emboss the envelopes too! I used the Layered Leaves, Tufted, and Subtle Embossing Folders.  Here is a closer look at each.

I even embossed the little flag on the last one with the Subtle folder.  It reminds me of linen fabric.

You could use a variety of sentiments with this card design. The sentiments I used are from Beautiful Bouquet and Perennial Birthday. I stamped each in Memento Black ink.
