German Phrase of the Day: Das ist nicht leicht. = That is not easy. Actually, the projects today were both pretty easy. :-)
It's Prettie Wednesday, and today is the day I get to show you my Anything But a Card project. I bought this purse while in Florida thinking it would be fun to alter, and to put Luke & Lexi from Paper Pretties Sealed With A Kiss stamp set. On the opposite side there is even a heart shaped window into which you can put a photo!! When I got home and came up wtih my challenge I thought, Perfect! I can make this purse for Christie, our Prettie Mama!! (Sorry Christie...I promise I'll get it in the mail this week...I'm running a little behind on mailings right now!! Maybe I'll fill it with some tea bags and chocolate! :-)
I covered one side, the bottom and top with my Berry Bliss paper using Mod Podge. Next, I stamped Luke & Lexi onto some white cardstock and colored them in with my aquapainter and watercolor crayons. I sponged the edges first with Pretty in Pink, then with chocolate chip ink before mounting them on some Chocolate Chip CS and adding some bling to Lexi's necklace and earrings. Then, I used my slit punch to put some ribbon around them without hiding their faces...it's a neat little trick! Finally, I stamped the SWAK stamp in the middle with pink ink.
I left the sides of the purse blank, and on the back (with the photo opening) I stamped some hearts in pink. It was a fun project to create, and I hope Christie will enjoy it, even put a photo of her and Andy in it.
And guess what?! My GinaK stamps arrived today!! WOOHOO!!! Another post coming soon with them!
