Stampin’ Addicts is 1 year old! We’re celebrating by showing you all kinds of birthday ideas! This is stop 5 on the Stampin’ Addicts Birthday Blog hop. If you’re following the hop in order, you just left Heartfelt Inkspiration where you saw here incredible Gardener’s Birthday gifts!
I’ve put together a gift ensemble suitable for a young lady featuring our Big Shot and Fabric and of course, stamps!
Here’s the whole ensemble. . . .
Okay, Okay – I know you want details and close ups – so here’s the first one.
I made this rag quilt purse using the Scallop Square die and the Big Shot! It only took a few hours to put together. Considering I haven’t sewed in 12 years, I think this turned out pretty well. Even if you think you can’t sew, I promise you can make this purse.
Next up, is the flower pin.
I used the flower folds die and the big shot to cut out the layers of fabric, hand stitched the layers together (including batting) , and finished with a Pretty in Pink Corduroy button. Add a pin to the back and it’s ready to go.
Lastly, we have to have a coordinating birthday card, right?
I left the sentiment off of the front. For this card, I think it’s better on the inside. You could easily convert this to almost any occasion.
Stamps: Bella’s Bloom, Bella’s Border Wheel
Paper: Mellow Moss, Pretty In Pink, Pale Plum Textured, and Very Vanilla Cardstock
Ink: Mellow Mos, Pretty In Pink, Pale Plum, Versamark
Accessories: White Embossing Powder
I hope you enjoyed seeing my birthday ensemble and I hope you leave inspired to try some fabric projects using the Big Shot.
