Handbags Galore!

We are sponsoring the “Allsorts” blog challenge this week - the theme is “Paper Piecing” and is the inspiration behind this project.

Handbags Galore, every girlie girl's dream. Except this time it is the range of Creative Expressions stamps and sentiments we have used to create this very cute card, resisting of course the instinct for pink!

The Foundations paper range ‘dots and stripes’ also helped not to overdose on the girly part.

Spellbinders Nestabilities Twisted Metal Tags and Accents create some interest in the corners. 

Along with the Spellbinders Heart Squares providing the layers as background for the purses. 

We also used the Spellbinders Ribbon Tags Trio

to stamp the sentiment and tied with the beautiful Creative Expression Wrinked Edge Ribbon in white:

For the finale we used our own Crimson Cloud Black Roses

Good luck and remember we would love to see and comment on your interpretations.

  1. Hello Mel

    A really super paper pieced creation and you have used some lovely elements, in fact I am just off to your store to take a look at those Twisted Metal Accents. They look like a real 'need' item.

    Thank you for joining us as a Guest Designer at Allsorts this week and also for your sponsorship of our challenge which is really appreciated.
