Is this a fun card or what?!! So many of us love to go shopping...shopping for that bargain is part of the hunt...and often makes the trip so worth it. What is more perfect than a trio of purses? Do you recognize the elements of each purse? Can you see how they were made?
Well, they were made with the Create a Cupcake stamp set and the Build a Cupcake punch...both are in the current mini (Occasions Mini), which is about to expire on April 30, 2011!!....only a few days left to get these great items!! The body of each purse was created by stamping the base of the cupcake and punching it out....except for the center purse, which was simply punched from DSP. The fashioned by first punching the Small Oval Punch and then following up with the Large Oval Punch, cut each created oval in half and there you go!! (For reference, check out this post from long ago, just scroll down past the card....same principal applies.) The flap is simply a 3/4" circle punch, folded over top of the inverted cupcake bottom and the finishing touch is one of the Basic Rhinestones.
This is the card I used for my shoe box swap submission that I attended about 2 months ago. But, as you can see at the bottom of the photo, this idea was inspired by the uber-talented Carrie Gaskin, another of my stamping idols.
