  • q chalk inks for icing - pink and then overstamped with purple

you can never have too many handbags!!

Hi fellow bloggers
I have always believed the above sentiment [same for shoes lol!] The back and front are the same except only the front has the gems and clasp. [ top pic is the front]
Anyway for my handbag I have used a 6"x6" card [slightly shaped]
  • Grand labels 4 nestie
  • beading tiger tail
  • toning ribbon [ I got at the Ally Pally in 2010]
  • bazill card
  • butterfly peel  offf
  • amethyst colour gems
  • black/silver brad with legs removed for clasp

Sweet Stampin Challenge - bingo - "flowers, spots and charm"

Hi fellow bloggers - SSC have a bingo theme this week and I have chosen "flowers, spots and charm" for my 'line'. I have left space under the flower for a sentiment and used the backing paper to line the envelope.

I have used:-
  • butterfly backing paper
  • scalloped circle nestie
  • cuttle bug swiss dots folder
  • small butterfly charm tinted with  bright pink promarker
  • pink polka dot grosgrain ribbon [to pick up the lighter pink butterfly colour]
  • white organza ribbon
  • handmade rosette flower using scor it and stamped with a kanban decorative strip stamp
  • black memento ink
  • grey pearl card for flower centre [stamped with kanban ribbon stamp/black memento]
