Stampin' Up Endless Birthday Wishes Card Class with Bag in a Box Purse Card Holder V

Today, I'll be sharing an adorable Bag in a Box Purse that holds the cards I made with Stampin' Up's Endless Birthday Wishes Stamp Set card class that Stampin' Up so generously provided us Demonstrators to teach some classes (with some of my own revisions).  

My Good Friend and Fellow Stampin' Up Demonstrator, Kadie, and I made this purse together over e-mails last weekend.  We had soooooo much fun!  We chat while we make our projects and then forward pictures to each other.  Sometimes, we even end up sending pictures of each others boo boo's too!  =)

There are tons of video's out there for the Bag in a Box Purse so I won't provide the instructions.  Seriously, it's easier to visit one of the many video's to make this purse.

Love this stamp set and the cards with all the bright and cheery cardstock colors and inks!  It's also a great class to use up a lot of cardstock scraps!

First, here is a picture of the Cards we made and the Envelopes we stamped.  We even took the dots stamp from SU's Endless Birthday Wishes Stamp Set and stamped the dots in coordinating colors on the flaps of our envelopes:

I'm not sure that these cards could get any more colorful, cheery and cute!

Now, here is the purse:

Way too cool, huh!  I used SU's Melon Mambo Designer Series Paper and Cardstock to make my purse.  And, of course, I had to alter mine.  I cut an extra inch off the Melon Mambo DSP to make it an inch shorter. 

The cards fit perfectly inside this purse and could even hold another card or two!

I used SU's Petite Flower Punch and punched out flowers to put over the top of the end of my purse handles.  The flower brads though are a Non-Stampin' Up product.

I pulled apart a long piece of SU's Melon Mambo/Basic Black Thick Baker's Twine and only used the Melon Mambo piece to tie my bow and add my tag with my sentiment.

I die cut the two flower pieces from SU's Floral Frames Collections Dies using the two smallest dies.

I took a piece of SU's 1-1/4" Bermuda Bay Grossgrain Ribbon and pulled all of the Bermuda Bay threads from it and adhered it to the back of the smallest floral die cut with the sentiment on it using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from SU's Circle of Spring Stamp Set in Memento Black Ink and adhered it to the SU Whisper White Floral Frame die cut with Stampin' Dimensionals.

What a fun card class and project!

That's all I have for today.  Thanks for stopping by my blog!

I recently discovered that people are using my cards and/or projects, duplicating them and entering them into challenges and using them for their own card classes.  My cards and projects are my own creations and are not to be used in challenges, blog hops, card classes or sold at craft shows; etc., for profit.  I don't mind if you duplicate my creativity to pass on to family members or friends as gifts or Occasions cards; but,  PLEASE be considerate of others creativity!  Thank you!

If you are interested in purchasing Stampin' Up products, you can order from me on-line at and please choose me, Lynn Gauthier, as your Demonstrator.



This is my first blog and it is still under construction.  I have yet to receive my Watermark so the picture's are copyright Lynn A. Gauthier, 2015-2016 Stampin' Up.
