I made these two little pretties for my friends birthday on Thursday. I wanted to use some soft pastel colours so I opted for the Tea Party Designer Series Paper, which by the way stampin up have a great special on this month, and then some pretty pastel cardstock to co-ordinate. The colours are Pink Pirouette, So Saffron & Almost Amethyst. The stamp set I have used is called crazy for cupcakes which I have been busting to crack open and have a little play with. Then I made this cute little purse to house the presents. One of the NZ Demonstrators demonstrated this at convention, I just carn't remember her name. She used the Eyelet edge punch and then put it through the crimper and that makes it resemble lace. I finished the purse with one of the filigree brads. I made my own measurements to fit what I wanted to put inside, thats why they are so versatile. I am hoping to get another one made but smaller tonite for mothers day so hopefully I will be back with that tomorrow.
