March's Card Purse Class

Last month I held a Card Purse stamp camp. Each person made a card purse, 4 cards and decorated matching envelopes.


I found a simple flower card made by alliohran and fell in love with the colour combo! Generally I dislike Groovy Guava, but these colours really work well together. Oh and did you notice the new jumbo brads in the centre of the flower?

5 petal punch
Stamps: Polka Dot Punches (Sale-A-Bration), Sweet Little Sentiments (Hostess)
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Paper: Baja Breeze, Cameo Coral, Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla
Accessories: Chocolate Chip 5/16" Jumbo brad, Stampin' Dimensionals, 5 petal punch

I get a lot of inspiration from splitcoaststampers. It has a great section to search on any Stampin' Up! stamp to get a variety of styles and ideas to use. I love it! This next card's idea and colours came from trishastamps.

Ink: Tempting Turquoise, So Saffron, Certaintly Celery, Pink Passion, Versamark, Basic Black
Paper: Tempting Turquoise, So Saffron, Whisper White
Accessories: Certaintly Celery ribbon (Sale-A-Bration), Stampin' Dimensionals, white embossing powder, Large Heart Punch

I designed the next card so that each person could choose which image she liked from the Wild About You set. The white area is just wide enough for the elephant and tall enough if the giraffe stamp was used.

And lastly my favourite of all of them! Such a mellow colour pallet.
