This is a card I made with the Pink Pirouette, Parisian Breeze Specialty Designer Paper and the Stampin' Up! Manhattan Flower Textured Impression Die. I also used the "Great Friend" Stamp Set that is in the Mini Catalog. This stamp set works with the "Stampin' Up! Matchbox" Die that is also in the Mini Catalog. Thanks for looking.

Here's my version of the card sketch from SplitcoastStampers. I used the new "Tall Tales Designer Series Paper ", "Animal Stories" Stamp Set, and the "Modern Label" Punch. These new products and more will be available for you to order on July 1st. The "Tall Tales Designer Paper" colors are Chocolate Chip, Rose Red, Old Olive, Brilliant Blue and So Saffron. This paper is really cute and reminds me of Animal Kingdom at Disney World.
I wanted to use another new stamp set called "Teeny Tiny Wishes" but I have not recieved it yet. The stamp set works great with the new Modern Label Punch. It should come in this week. I hope you like the card and I hope you try the card sketch too. Thanks for looking.

2 - Top Note pieces
2 - trimmed Top Note pieces
1 - paper sack I cut the top off, so the bag should be 3" tall.
1 - piece of cardstock cut using the Clear Circle Die - (a little less than a 4" circle)
1 - piece of cardstock cut using the Circle, Scallop Die - (4 1/2" scallop circle)
piece of ribbon
2 - jumbo eyelets
Score the scallop circle at 1 3/4" and 2 3/4".
I place the circle on top of the scallop and mark the score lines for the circle and than I score. I don't know if this is the correct way but it just makes sense to me. Attach the circle to the scallop with sticky strip tape or scor-tape. I used a paper piercer to punch a hole into each scallop on the circle. Which can be seen in the finished picture.
Apply sticky tape or scor-tape to the one side of the paper bag (make sure it has been cut to 3"), attach to the inside of the top note.
Attach the jumbo eyelets to the lid of the purse. Once the eyelets are attached, attach the one side of the lid to the back of the purse. Run the ribbon through the lid. Attach a velcro circle to the inside flap. Embellish the front as desired. I was able to fit 5 - 3 x 3 cards and envelopes inside this purse. If you have any questions, please email me.

Here's another version of the Top Note Purse with 3 x 3 monogrammed cards. I made this one with the Bella Rose Designer Series Paper. This paper is also retiring this month, it is another one of my favorite designer papers...I love the pink pirouette in-color. If you have any questions, email me or leave a comment.
Thanks for looking!

The card base is Very Vanilla, Old Olive and Chocolate Chip. The Chocolate Chip and Old Olive pieces were run through the big shot using the textured plates and finished with a sanding block. I have always been afraid to use the textured plates...I'm not sure why. They are very easy to use. On the bottom right side of the card I added three 5/16" Neutral Jumbo Brads, I love these brads. The image is from the stamp set Inspired by Nature. I did emboss this image with clear embossing powder and Old Olive Craft Ink. I used the Horizontal Slot Punch to punched out brown slots to add to the image.
Thanks for looking!

"Lot of Bots" is one the of Sneak Peeks that the demonstrators can pre-order. As soon as I seen this stamp set, I had to get it. I am always looking for something older and manly for my two older boys and my husband, besides what boy does not like robots. My son had to go to a birthday party today and I could not wait to use the new stamp set.
This is a 3x3 card in Basic Gray, and Baja Breeze cardstock.
I first inked the robot image using Versa Mark than lightly inked with basic gray ink. Once I stamped the image onto the watercolor paper, I used clear embossing powder and heat set the image. The image was water colored with Baja Breeze and Basic Gray Ink.
The Baja Breeze Paper I stamped the Nuts and Bolts Stamp from the same stamp set with Basic Gray Ink. Before attaching the Baja Breeze Paper to the card I used my new "Modern Label Punch" on the front flap. Used a thin line of dimensionals to the outer edges of the Baja Breeze piece of paper, this will leave a little room to slip money into the inside flap. Silver brads were used on the four corners of the watercolor paper.
What do you think? Do you love this new stamp set? This stamp set and the modern label punch will be available in the Stampin' Up! 2009-2010 Idea Book and Catalog beginning July 1st. Have you preordered your new catalog? If not send me an email.
Check back tomorrow and see what I made for my son's teachers.
Enjoy your weekend.
Thanks for looking!

As promised, here's the scrapbook purse I made with the Parisian Breeze Specialty Designer Paper. This is the version of the Mother's Day purse that I made for my mom for Mother's Day. I wanted to give her one that was a little different than the one she made in my class. She likes the Baja Breeze In Color and this is one of my favorite Designer Series Paper in the spring and summer catalog. Oh course it is on the Last Chance List.
