Spring LNS Card and Purse

Happy Easter everyone!  I am posting 2 quick projects that I made for this week's LNS challenge - which was to make something that relates to spring!  Love that we are having a very early spring and I love seeing everything coming into bloom; now to figure out how to keep the deer from eating everything in my yard.....

The first project is a thank you card that we did at a stamp camp and is cased from a card that the very talented Gayle Wheeler did.  You can find Gayle's blog HERE.  This is a very simple, yet elegant spring type of card to make that suits many different occasions.  I scored the lines 1/2" from the edge using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool.  I stamped the flowers with a StazOn IP and then colored the images in with Rose Red, Wild Wasabi and So Saffron inks.

Stamps: Bordering on Romance, Just Believe (saying)
Inks: Rose Red, So Saffron, Wild Wasabi, Black StazOn
Papers: Whisper White
Accessories: Simply Scored Scoring Tool, Watercolor Brush, Pearls, Scissors, Dimensionals

The second project I made was a purse using the Petite Purse Die from the sneak peak promotion SU! is running this month.  These little purses are so cute and are so easy to make!  There are so many different ways to accent these little purses and they are very easy to use an embossing folder with.

Papers: Calypso Coral, Everyday Enchantment SAB DSP, Poppy Parade, Pear Pizzazz
Accessories: Big Shot, Petite Purse Die, Vintage Wallpaper EF, BoHo Punch, Bird Punch, Natural Brad, Pear Pizzazz Ribbon, Paper Piercing Tool, Dimensionals, Mini-Glue Dots

The purse is adorable! I love the idea of using the ribbon for the handle. Cute, cute, cute!
