Oooh La La!

Did you know that it is Vancouver Fashion Week here in Vancouver?  No fashionable girl will want to be caught without this spring's HOTTEST are a few projects that feature the stamp set Artistic Etchings and the Newsprint Designer Series Paper.  Don't you just love the Artistic Etchings stamp set?  It is so versatile (and popular too based on how many of my customers have purchased this set!).  Natasha and I have a couple of projects coming up showcasing this set.  If you don't own it, now is the time to get it so you can make these cute projects too!  

This first card comes together super quick.  It simple, but so classy and elgant too.  What a great little note card to give to someone.  This card uses Basic Black cardstock, and Newsprint DSP (edges have been sponged with More Mustard ink).  The centre image has been popped up on Dimensionals.  The red mediallion was stamped off first before stamping the lighter image onto the Newsprint DSP, and then the crown image was stamped overtop in Basic Black.  I then spritzed the image with the Color Spritz tool and a Chocolate Chip marker to distress and create some splatter.  Basic Rhinestone Jewels add bling, and 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon in Basic Black finishes it off. 

I got the idea of my second card from my upline Jenn (Hi Jenn!).  The card was basically designed by her, but I changed the image on the front.  Anyways, the base of the card is a Medium Envelope in Crumb Cake.  It was sealed shut and then slit open down the side by shaving off a hair of the side of the envelope with my paper trimmer.  Once the front of the envelope was decorated, the front edge of the envelope was cut with circle punch.   A whisper white insert was placed inside the envelope with an accent cut in Baja Breeze with a smaller circle punch.

The last project is this glamorous little purse made out of Newspring DSP, Basic Black cardstock, and closes with a Basic Rhinestone Jewel clasp...........tres chic!  What fashionista wouldn't LOVE to get a little gift card in this designer purse?  I purchased the tutorial on how to make this little purse (and two other designs) from Becky Roberts.  You can purchase her tutorial here (look to the sidebar on the right).  $3.95 for all three designs......what a'll be ready for the runway!!
