Purse Cards

The following cards were all made using Stampers Sampler's Tempting Template Purse Card. If you've never seen their templates, you should really check them out. They will definately help kick your creative muse into gear.

The first two cards were published in the October/November 07 issue of Stampers Sampler. I was surprised, I thought out of any of the cards the last would have been the one they used. Just goes to show you never know what they will be looking for! Anyway...on to the cards....

"I'm so glad..." - Supplies: Denim Adirondack Ink (flowers & foliage); Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink (edges); Jet Black Archival Ink (sentiment); Liquid Pearls (all flower centers) all Ranger. Flowers & Foliage stamp - Autumn Leaves; Senitment stamp - Wordsworth; Cardstock - Club Scrap; Flowers - Prima. The inside of the card reads... "....we're friends!"

"Bon Voyage" - Supplies: Adirondack Inks; Archival Inks; Perfect Ink Refresher; Pearfect Pearls; - Ranger; Stamps - Hero Arts & Impression Obession.

Special Technique - Faux Leather Paper - I wish you could feel/see the brown paper. It looks and feels like leather in person. I am planning on a tutorial of this technique in the near future. It is well worth the time it takes to do this technique. It truely is an amazing finished product!

"Always & Forever" - Supplies: Big & Bossy 2-tone Embossing Pad, Black Sparkle Embossing Powders; Black Soot Distress Ink. Flourish stamps - Fancy Pants; Bird & Sentiment stamps - Autumn Leaves.
Dispite the fact that red scares me (it's so very bold and I'm so not - LOL!!) I LOVE this card. I don't know what it is about it but I really liked it. I should know that the stuff I REALLY like never gets published - LOL!! Ah well...

So, there you have it...
a Tempting Template
some examples to get you started!!
Hope they help to inspire you to create today :)

Ink On My Friends...Ink ON!!!


  1. Those are all so great!! I love them!! You are truly an artist. Thanks again for sharing your wonderful tallent with us. :)

  2. OMG....I would not be able to stop making those amazing purses!! They all look so different, and evoke completely different moods. I guess I have to say that I love the blue one best....but that's only because I could use some calming cool blue these days!
