Anything But a Card Blog Hop for DeNami Design


Hello everyone.  Welcome to your next stop on this journey of crafty inspiration.  You should have come here from Pattie's Blog.  If not, you should hop over to the DeNami Design Blog and start from the beginning.  I know you are probably tired, but you are almost finished.  Just a few more stops to go!


I used the DeNami Design Purse Template and printed it on Very Vanilla cardstock from Stampin' Up!.  After cutting it out, I stamped an overall design in VersaMark ink using a large stamp (pictured below) that is now retired.  I am not sure what it was called, but it is the P size and was made in 1999.  I used clear embossing powder to heat emboss the overall design.  I sponged on So Saffron (Stampin' Up!), Rose Bud (Memento), and Crumb Cake (Stampin' Up!).  I wiped the ink from the embossed areas.  After getting the shading I was happy with, I stamped the Decorative Flourish over the design in So Saffron, the Mini Swirl Flourish and another retired flourish in Crumb Cake, and the Mini Solid Flower in Rose Romance (Stampin' Up!).  I wiped the ink from the embossing after each application of stamps.

Before assembling the purse, I printed another template on some pretty floral paper to line the inside.


After assembling the purse I added some ribbon trim and a ribbon rose to the front of the purse.  The last step was creating the handle.  I used some glass beads from Stampin' Up! and threaded them onto some wire and attached them to the purse.

These are the stamps I used to make this project:



This little purse is the perfect size to hold a gift card.  Thank you for stopping by and don't forget to comment.  DeNami Design is giving away two $20 gift certificates to two random commenters and one to a random participant (design team not eligible).  You have until November 14, 2011 at 11:59 PST to get those comments in. 

The next stop on your journey is Barbara's blog.  I am sure she has something wonderful in store for you.
