Stampin’ Up! All Dressed to Impress For the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s a color challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

When I saw the color challenge – I right away thought of the Best Dressed 6″ x 6″ DSP.  And, of course, the coordinating Dressed to Impress stamp set and bundled All Dressed Up Die set.  I ended up not using as much of the DSP as I’d figured, but…well.  Take a look-see:

And – here’s our challenge!

The layout and elements are inspired by Charlet Mallett’s beautiful card at this week’s Global Design Project CASE the Designer challenge!

I started with a piece of Basic Black that I embossed in my Country Floral 3D Embossing Folder and matted on Petal Pink for the card front.

Also from Petal Pink, I cut a single “purse” with the die from the All Dressed Up Die set.  With Paper Snips, I trimmed off all but the large panel.  Then I embossed the die cut piece in the Tufted 3D Embossing Folder.

With the buckle die in the All Dressed Up Die Set I cut a couple of buckles from a Gold Foil sheet.  I ran the end of some Petal Pink 1/4″ Metallic-Edge Ribbon thru each buckle – and then adhered them to the front of my purse with Glue Dots.

Then I popped the purse onto the embossed card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To get ready to decorate the purse, I cut two Frosted Bouquet “berries” out of Mint Macaron card stock.

On Whisper White, I stamped a bunch of the two different floral images from Dressed To Impress in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored them with my Petal Pink, Lovely Lipstick and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blend Combo Packs – and cut them with their matching All Dressed Up dies.

I also stamped the sentiment from Dressed To Impress in Lovely Lipstick on Whisper White and cut it with the label die in the set.

To assemble the purse, I first adhered a Petal Pink Best Dressed Tassel on one buckle with a Glue Dot.  Then I started adhering the berries and flowers with Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The sentiment is popped on with Dimensionals.

I finished off the card front with Champagne Rhinestones in the middle of each flower – and a small bow from Mint Macaron 1/8″ Sheer Linen Ribbon, adhered with a Glue Dot.

On the inside, I added more Dressed To Impress flowers in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Whisper White panel.  Around the flowers, I stamped some dots from the set in Mint Macaron.  Finally, I colored the flowers with my Blends and gave them a Champagne Rhinestone.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Petal Pink mat and into my Lovely Lipstick card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Dressed To Impress flowers and dots on the front (no Rhinestones!)….

….and (finally!) some of the gorgeous Best Dressed 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et voila!  What a fun and flirty purse for Mother’s Day – and still a “card”!  Love the Dressed To Impress stamp set and the versatility of the bundled all Dressed Up Dies!

And – of course! – the uber-gorgeous Best Dressed DSP!  I hope you like – and will have it in your arsenal soon if you don’t already!
