Using the Lilac card stock die cut the purse base. Ink the edges of the purse with the Dusty concord distress ink.. Adhere only the purse bottom base together at this stage.  I used double sided tape and wet glue to make this strong. Taking the design paper pad, find the pink toned paper with the shutter, tree and flower print, die cut the lace backgrounds using both the dies from the Rain drops on roses die set. Ink the edges of these die cuts with the dusty concord ink. Lay the purse flat to adhere a lace background on each side of the purse. Stamp, color, then die cut all the images for this project. ( Make sure you have more than enough of the images, there are a lot of layers used. ) For the purse front, adhere the grass to the purse, trimming as you go, making lots of layers. Using two darling images adhere to the foot of the purse with 3d tape. Arrange and tuck the stemmed flowers and leaves at both sides of the purse. Do the same for the back of the purse. The darling has two wing layers. Cut the wings away from the darling image and adhere to the back of the full image. Once all is dry and secure, complete the construction of the purse. Apply a small dot or square Velcro to fasten the purse closure. Add a large leaf cluster and a shaped single flower to one side of the closure. Apply clear drying glue to the foot of both sides of the purse then sprinkle go man go prills on the glue line. Do the same on the darlings dandelion, using the silver lining color for this. To finish, apply star dust and orange peel stickles to the flower centers and grass flowers. Star dust stickles to the wings and toadstool spots.


Aren't these toadstools cute!...love the stickles on the spots...and what about those wings....all surgery and glittery...made for anyone that is addicted to bling and glitter.


Here's a close up of the darling in the grass


Details of the wild grass placements. Stamp, die cut and colour more than you need, then you can trim them to add lots and lots of layers to the work.


Here you see the colouring, these flowers are so cute. A delight to work with.One can never have enough flowers for projects....You also see the edges are inked, this gives a nice finish for a block coloured card stock.

This sure is a fun collection. Last week the cottage, this week a purse. This purse makes a wonderful gift packaging...sure will make any little sweet heart jump with joy and glee.

Next week more of this collection...till then,
scrappy inky hugs from me...xoxxo

Instructions: 
The finished size of this slider card is 17. 5 cm x 21 cm. NOTE: All the stamping is done on the aquarelle paper and with the black archival ink. All the measurements are converted to inches for this card HERE
TO MAKE THE ‘Z’ SLIDER CARD FROM A4 cardstock. This Z slider card fits into an envelope that measures 22 cm x 21 cm when completed. To make the card base: Taking the A4 cardstock, score at 6 cm and at 12 cm along the long edge. Fold this into valley and hill folds. This will form the card front foot (6 cm x 20.8 cm) and card front background (17.7 cm x 20.8 cm). For the slider, cut 11.5 cm x 7 cm. For the card front, cut 14 cm x 17 cm. All the matting layers will be cut at 2 mm smaller each side. For the card slider guide, cut from the card stock a band measuring13.5 cm x 7 cm. Cut a half circle into one of the 13.5 cm edge. This will be the top edge so you can slide the slider easily into the guide when the card is finished. Adhere in place to the back of the card front. Adhere the slider to the top center of the card background. Adhere the card front to the center of the card foot. Slide the slider in to place. Make and adhere all the embellishments to the card front. When adding the slider decoration, make sure the slider still slides before securing with glue. Follow the instructions below on how to decorate this card. Find from the paper pad the design paper needed and cut to fit the slider card panels. Cut first the card front, as you will be a little short to cover the total back card panel. This does not matter, as you will not see this when the card is completed. Now cut the card foot and slider from the remaining paper. Ink the edges with the faded jeans ink then distress the edges with the distressing tool. Adhere in place. Taking the crème card stock die cut the house and roof three times each. Emboss the house with the embossing folder; first apply the gathered twigs to one side of the folder before running it through the machine. This will give you the brick print in the embossing. Apply the gathered twig ink to the roof and all sides of the house. Stamp all the images needed for this card, make lots of them, as there are many layers. With the pencils bring color to the image out lines then with the brush then water drag the color. This is the method I used to do the coloring for this card. Once you have brought color and die cut the images, shape them with the flower shaping tool kit. The windows and door are adhered with the double-sided foam tape and clear drying glue. The rest of the images are adhered with glue and double sided foam tape where needed. When all is secure and dry, apply the stickles to the flower centers, windows, door, toadstool and any where else you think it needs it to give a sparkly bling feel to the card.

The card size is, 17.5 cm x 20.8 cm (6.15" x 8.4")
To make the card base: 
Taking the A4 cardstock and score at 6 cm (2.6") and at 12 cm (4.12") along the long edge. Fold into valley and hill folds. This will form the card front foot 6 cm x 20.8 cm (2.6" x 8.4") cm and card front background 17.7 cm x 20.8 cm (7" x 8.4"). For the slider, cut 10.5 cm (4.3") height x 12.1 cm (4.13") width. (12.1 cm is the edge that is later glued to the top of the card) For the card front cut 16.5 cm (6.8") height x 20.8 cm (8.4") width. All the matting layers will be cut at 2 mm smaller each side. Cut 6.5 cm (2.11") height x 17 cm (6.12") width for the slider guide. Taking the forest moss ink, ink the card background, slider and card foot of the card base.  Adhere the slider to the top of the card background base. Adhere the slider guide to the back of the card front base so the slider will slide when all is put together. 


Taking the design paper, fussy cut the tree leaves. Measure and cut the top left of the paper to fit the card front. You will be missing the right corner due to the fussy cutting. This will be covered so you will not see this once the card is finished. Fussy cut the remaining image. Ink the edges of the fussy cuts with the forest moss ink. Adhere the design paper cuts to the card front base using glue and tape. Use the 3d foam tape / foam squares to give the height needed. Apply the tea dye ink to the background around the Deer and between the trees as needed. 


From the remaining fussy cut piece with leaves and roses on it, ink the edges and adhere to the top of the slider. 

Apply the glossy accents / crystal lacquer to the Deer and small flowers in the tree leaves on the card front. 


To finish, add stickles to the flowers along the foot of the card and to the roses.


 I hope you had fun with this card. No stamping or die cutting today....one for the books!

Other: Versa-mark, Double sided Tape, Double Sided Foam Tape, Scoreboard

Instructions: 
The finished size of this card is, 14 cm x 13 cm. Please Note: All the stamping is done with the gold embossing powder. To make the tunnel base cut 4 x 12.7 cm x 12.7 cm (5" x 5") Cut frame openings on each frame. 1st Base layer leave as is, the 2nd frame 1.6 cm (5 / 8") sides. 3rd frame, 2.2 cm (7 / 8") sides and 4th frame, 3.2 cm (1 1/4") sides. For the accordion sides cut, 12.7 cm x 9.1 cm (5" x 3 1 /2") Make hill and valley folds by folding every 1.3 cm (1 / 2") which forms the accordion sides for the frames to be slotted into. Stamp, color and die cut all the images from the sets. Arrange and adhere in place across the frame openings. Take the time to make sure all the details can be seen. It is worth the extra time to enable to display all your work in 3d. Apply gesso to soften the brown and distress the cardstock. Adhere the frames slotted into the accordion sides, first one side then the other. This card is 3d but yet will fall flat when sending by post…very handy.
An extra tip: You could always  add a few flowers to the Card out side you find it too simple. But I wanted to be able to send this in a envelope and not in  a box. Remember this can be sent flat....something very different for me!


Close ups of the layering...all that gold.



A few close ups of the sides and under that you don't see when the card is standing


Have a inky scrappy day, and sussipoppins hugs to you

Instructions:
NOTE: This week I have done my best to convert to inches. In brackets.I hope this works out right for you. I suggest you purchase a cm ruler to double check....have fun.
The finished size of this Z slider card is 13.5 cm x 15 cm. (5.5" x 5.14")
Taking the white card stock, cut for the card base at 27 cm x 13.5 cm (10.10" x 5.5")To form the Z card base make folds at 6 cm (2.6") and 12 cm (4.11") across the 27 cm measurement. Fold these creases to form hill and valley folds. Once the card base is folded, the measurements to be further used will be, 15 cm x 13.5 cm (background), 6 cm x 13.5 cm. (card front foot),
Further, cut from the white card stock, 13 cm (5.2") x 10 cm (3.15")(card front) and 11.5 cm (41/2") x 4.5 cm (1.12") (card slide). This can now be matted with contrasting card stock and or design paper. All matting and design papers are trimmed 2mm smaller each side for each layer used.
Once the card background and the slider card piece are completed, the slider can be adhered to the top center of the card background. When the card front is being put together, remember to leave the top of the card between the base and the matting layers open. This is so you can slide the slider between the layers. This part of the card holds it all upright and works as a stand. Adhere the card front to the card foot, making sure you have enough room for the slider to slide into the card front opening.
To decorate the card front, Cut the green card stock to size and adhere in place. Cut the dark green design paper to fit the card front base and slider. Edge the card base front design paper with gold embossing powder, do the same to a circle of 8.8 cm (3.8") of the same paper. Stamp the sentiment and gold emboss. Cut this to a circle of 6.5 cm (2.9") Adhere the circles to the front design paper with the foam tape or foam dots. Adhere to the card front base. Stamp, color and die cut the Deer, 6 large leaf images with Archival ink then 3 using the gold embossing powder. Arrange in layers around the sentiment circles then adhere in place. Once the Deer have been placed to the lower right of the card with foam tape / dots, apply glossy accents / Crystal Lacquer to add interest to the card.


Above, you see the combination of the gold embossing and black ink stamping on the leaves.
Love the mixture.


Above you get a detailed view of the leaf placement.


Unfortunately you can not see the glossy in this photo...but it is there...but aren't these deer so cute...love them! 
A simple card this week...but one of my favs....this time less is more....lol

Click HERE and HERE to see a video on a few tips for this collection


The shadowbox when opened...opening into a full woodsy wonderland of cuteness and wonder...
Instructions: 
The finished size of this project is a little over 15 cm x 15 cm.
To make the tunnel base, take the card stock and cut x 4 15 cm x 15 cm. From 3 cut a hole into the square form a frame. The cover frame edge is 2.2 cm. The remaining two are 3 cm and 1.5 cm frame edges. The supporting box the measurements are, 15.1 cm x 15.1 cm for the base, 3 sides at 2 cm, 1 side at 2 cm + 1.5 cm. ( this is for the front frame hinge. ) Ink the edges using the different colored inks. Green inks for the ground and blue inks for the sky. Adhere all together to form a box with a hinged cover. Adhere the ribbon to the side of the box. Make a sentiment using the ‘Thinking of you‘ stamp from the Paw-fect Pooches stamp set. listed above in the product list. To make the inside; Stamp all the images from the collection with the archival ink on aquarelle paper, you can never have enough. Color the images with the watercolor pencils then die cut the images. Arrange across the openings of the frames. Checking that you will see the treetops and critters in each layer by placing on top of each other before adhering in place. ( I know it is a bother, but it is worth it, as you do not want to have to start all over again to get it right. ) Once there is a base line of tree lines and bush you can then add the critters and birds. You can trim to size the flowers and forest foliage as fillers, that is the reason why it is good idea to color and die cut extra images. What is over can always be used in other projects at a later date. Once all is glued and secure on the frames, you can adhere the frames together in a stack. Adhere two foam dots together to form one dot to give the height needed between each frame. The dot placement is three across on each side.  Because you have used ink you will need to add a spot of wet glue to the foam dots to secure the hold. Once you have adhered the entire frame together, add double sided tape to the base and sides of the box. Place the frames into the box, tie the ribbon, add the sentiment and embellish the frame front. Add a few spots of stickles here and there to add interest.


These two cute critters are adhered to the sides of the box.
The critters hide the adhesive for the ribbon.

All of the above the out side of the box front, below the box opened.

This is how it looks opened.
Further below....the opened shadowbox...lots of layers and close ups so you can see where the placements are for all the yum cuteness.....have fun.....
