Pals Guest Stamper Sandie C.

You loved her in this previous Stampin' Pretty post and she's at it again.  Sandie Conner, one of my Stampin' Pretty Pals, is today's guest stamper and has delivered an amazing purse and card combo.  Sandie doesn't have a blog to share with you (although she's kicking the idea around–woo hoo) but did oblige my request to spill the beans on the products.  See the end of my post.

I love how she layered the Four Frames rubber stamp image over the Bliss stamp.  Her use of the Basic Pearls Jewels is fabulous.  Isn't the texture (courtesy of the Square Lattice Textured Embossing Folder) on the stripe designer paper smashing!

SANDIE'S TIP:  The card is little and sized to fit in the purse without an envelope.

This purse is tr?s chic (love the shabby flower) . . . but wait until you see what fits perfectly inside!

Here's the on-line video tutorial by Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Frenchie Martin that inspired Sandie's purse.

IMG_0591-1 Come on, Sandie . . . even the back of the purse has beautiful details.  Can you believe she accomplished this purse starting with just a 6×6 piece of DSP?

SPRING IS BLOSSOMING PROMOTION ENDS APRIL 30 along with the opportunity to purchase the Four Frames stamp set that Sandie used on her card.  After April 30, you'll have to wait until the new Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalog are released July 1 to order this set when it's available again.  Get the details.

    What a fun project! I love it! They had those eggs on sale at the store yesterday but I couldn’t get them – I would eat them all before the little purse was made! All made from the 6×6 sheet?
