Using the "Other" Stamps

I finally got some gorgeous My Favorite Things stamps. This card uses the Say Charge set. I wanted to make a card that didn't focus on the large main image that comes in most of the sets. I love the large image. It's gorgeous, but I also want to use the "other" stamps. So here we are with the sentiment and purses.

It's all pretty self-explanatory, execpt maybe the tabs and purses. The purses were each stamped on white and cut out. Then the bodies of the purses (not handles) were stamped on designer paper, cut out, and layered on top of the white cut outs. The tabs: the half-inch circle didn't look quite big enough, so I used the slit punch. I punched right on the edge of a piece of scrap paper, so that I would just have a loose half circle. I glued it on top of the sentiment layer and added rhinestone brads.

Ingredients:
Stamps: My Favorite Things Say Charge
Ink: Versamagic black
Paper: Pixie pink, certainly celery, Papertrey Ink white, Memory Box ring toss and cherry blossom
Other: SU! slit punch, dimensionals, ribbon from Walmart, making memories rhinestone brads

I also got my first blogger's RAK! Isn't it so cute? I LOVE the felt rick rack and how the green is up on dimensionals with the cut outs for the frogs. It's from Shannon at Hoppy Creations. Thank you! I love it! Definitely stop by and check out her really cute stuff.

Have a fabulous Friendship Friday! Now, I have to clean the house to have the in-laws over for dinner tomorrow.
