Big Shot - Scallop Square Die Purse!!!

I just made this purse using the Scallop Square die and the Big Shot!! I am totally hooked now, so you might see a few more of these!
The overall purse is about 12" x 8" x 4", it really is the perfect size.
Here are a few more pictures... Here is a close up.

And here is my cell phone pocket on the side!

Double Display Card

And Open!
I recently found a FREE template for this type of card and just had to try it! I used rich razzleberry paper and the black and white DSP from the last mini catalogue. And of course the beautiful Wings sizzlit die!

Baroque Motifs Highlighted

I used the Baroque Motifs set, flower fusion felt flowers and a gel pen to get this look!

More Brick Wall Technique...

I couldn't give up without being totally happy with this technique so I had to try again! I used the Asian Artistry set this time and Fundamental Phrases. I also used the Welcome Neighbor DSP for the flower card background.

Brick Wall Technique

I used the brick wall technique with the Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set to make this card.
You can see how to do this technique by CLICKING HERE!
This took a really long time to do, I would suggest making larger bricks and using an easier pattern!
I stamped the fifth avenue floral roses in Rose red on the neighborhood patterned paper from sale-a-bration. I then stamped them again and embossed with black. I sponged over them and then cut them into bricks. My bricks are 3/8" x 3/4". Way too small to not go crazy! Here is a picture before I cut them up.

Origami Flower Bouquet!

I saw on the Paper Enchantment Blog an origami flower bouquet and I just had to try it! I searched on the web and found directions to make all the flowers except one so I switched it out for another flower. This is my finished bouquet!
I started all of the flowers with 6" square pieces of Designer Series Paper (mostly from the hostess 6" paper assortment!) I got the greenery from the dollar store.
Do not start this unless you are willing to spend some time on it! These folds are tough and take a bit of time!

Here are some close up pictures and the links for the directions to all the folds!

Here is the link for the Lily

Here is the link for the Tulip

Here is the link for the daisy-like flower

If you are looking for more flower options I found a great site with lots of directions, it is just hard to tell what all the flowers will look like, here is the link for that:
A ton of origami flowers

Here is the Paper Enchantment blog where I saw these great flowers!

1978 CJ5 Jeep Card

I inherited a Jeep from my uncle that I was taught to drive in from my Grandparents when I was 13. It's been very special to me for my entire life so I was pretty excited to get it. My husband and I are slowly restoring it and trying to make it a little safer. I made this card for my Uncle to say thank you. I drew a line template for it that I figured I would share just in case anyone has a use for it! All the papers are cut out individually to make the Jeep, now I just need to figure out the rest of the card! Any suggestions would be appreciated!
Here is a picture of me and my Jeep!

Black Sheep

I thought this was too funny of an idea not to do! Do you have a black sheep in your family? I don't think we do in ours but I know of some that do! He looks so cute made out of basic gray paper.

Pop-out Lattice Butterfly

I saw this idea of using the lattice as a pop-up frame for the inside of a card and I loved it! It seems very elegant.
For the front I cut the lattice die cut out of a white piece of paper. I popped this up over black polka dot paper and popped up the inside pieces back where they got cut out. I also used pieces from a black lattice for the sides.
To make the pop-up inside just fold the lattice in four equal parts and glue it down! I used the Beautiful Wings embosslits die on black paper and drew on it with a white gel pen.
