Timeless Tuesday Challenge

Our challenge was to create a project that used clear acetate.  It was a fun challenge and I tried something just a bit different.  Instead of making a card, I made a clear petite purse.  I added some pretty flowered patterned paper to the sides so the Scor-Tape I used to hold the purse together would be covered.

To find out all about the challenge, head on over to the Flourishes website to read all about their Timeless Tuesday challenges.  You'll also get to see some of the other great projects others made.

Stamp Set:  Swan Lake (Flourishes); Inks:  Rose Red, Wild Wasabi (Stampin' Up! Markers); Card Stock:  Window Sheet Medium (Stampin' Up!), Basic Grey True Love, Water Color Paper; Accessories & Tools:  Petite Purse Die (Stampin' Up!), 1/8" Dark Rose Ribbon

It was a very hard project to photograph given I don't have an ideal set up to take pictures.  You can't see the flowered paper very well and the flowers on the front don't show off the color very well but it turned out well.  I did add a small tab of Velcro under the flower so the purse could be shut.  Add a bit of candy or a piece of jewelry and you have a very cute gift bag.


  1. What a darling little project! I am so glad you are getting good use out of that Swan set. :)

  2. Marsha, what a great idea to try this die with Window Sheet - I love it!

  3. OMGosh, this is adorable! I love the patterned paper on the sides and the flowers look beautiful! I'm so glad you joined us for the Timeless Tuesday Seeing Clearly Challenge!
