A little bit obsessed with the Petite Purse Die

I am completely and totally in love with these purses and have been playing around this weekend with the die on and off.   This wee combination was made this morning as it is the birthday of a friend of mine and I wanted to take her a little gift.    Hope you like the combination of purse and card. 

(Edit - made a hasty altered paper bag to pop the gift in and protect it)

This purse does use some retired DSP but it was just too pretty to blog in my opinion.    The crumb cake tulle ribbon from the new catalogue helped create the gorgeous bow and I sponged the organza ribbon with pool party ink to coordinate.

Petite purse die - finally!


I finally got my Stampin Up order earlier this week and managed to have a wee play with it today.   I made this gorgeous wee purse with the big shot die and then embossed it with my new lacy brocade embossing folder.   A button with some thin ribbon and gold brads to adhere the handle finished the elegant look of the purse and the addition of small magnets helps hold it closed without stressing the cardstock.    I filled the purse with Hersheys kisses.

This purse is heading off to a friend as a gift along with an altered jar to be used as a pen holder.   I have plenty of altered jars on my table to hold all my pens and tools and this particular friend admired one of my jars yesterday so I decided to make one in her favourite colour which is purple.   She had admired the Rich Razzleberry so it was the obvious choice to use.    A leftover coffee jar (Screaming Turtle) and some of the DSP colour stacks made a great base to add some letters and a tiny wee flower made with the new scallop punch from the Christmas Catalogue.    A few pieces of ribbon finished off the look.     I am hoping she loves this gift and that it brings great cheer to her.
