A Little Gift "Purse!"

Hi! Today I'm excited to kick off a week full of inspiration on the SP Stamps blog! We are all focusing on gift ideas this week and I decided to make good use of my Silhouette.

I started out by cutting out a darling purse, matching accents and a tag from plain cardstock and papers from Echo Park's So Happy Together 6x6 paper stack.  This stack is one of my all-time favorites and was available in the SP Monthly Kit Club.  I chose this particular cut because that center slot holds a gift card!

After the pieces were cut, I started stamping and adhering everything together.

I stamped the chevron on the little tag and I only inked up the area that I would need.  Remember, if you don't have a block large enough for some of our background stamps (like Chevron Chase, pictured above), you can just use the acetate that the stamp comes on as your block.  It's also perfect when it's 2 am and you're still stamping, but getting lazy.  Oh, I'm not saying I do that or anything, it's just an idea.  Wink, wink.

Here's a little close up of the tag and a flower I created using punches.  I love to mix and match patterns, so I also used the Large Polkadot Background stamp along with the papers and Chevron Chase to keep it interesting.

Inside, I stamped the sentiment in black and in watermark ink, so it will sit right behind the gift card.  This is from the Swirly Doo set.  It fit perfectly inside!!!

And this is the finished piece.  The little "Happy Birthday" on the tag is from the All Zipped Up set.  I think this would be a fun gift for anyone to receive - I know my mom already had her eye on it!

Make sure you stop back each day this week to see what the entire DT will be sharing.  And don't forget that new stamps come out each month on the 10th!
