Some More TopNote Purses

As you get to know me, or if you already do, you will know I love to create something over and over in many ways, to see just how many looks I can get. Of course in any creative endeavor the sky is the limit, so I have to tell myself to stop! This was true with my topnote purses and I had so much fun creating different looks with this technique which I found over at SCS. The link to Butternutsage's tutorial will help you to create your own purses!!

Anyway, I am kinda thrilled with how these came out and hope you enjoy them too!
The blue faux crocodile bag was made by running ballet blue cardstock through my cuttelbug, stippled with Itty Bitty Backgrounds in brilliant blue, then clear embossed. I do forget how vibrant the clear EP makes things... I had in mind a lighter blue when I started! So I was a little startled by the color. LOL!!I had so much fun decorating this, like so many of my projects it took on a life of its own! The clutch bag on the right is made using one topnot cut in half, the paper I used is Que sera sera by K and Company, as well as some scraps from the blue purse! The white one is made with white cardstock (doh) run through the swiss dots folder, and clear embossed to give a patent leather look.

Till my next post, Nancyruth

About Me

My photo
Hi everyone! My Name is Nancy Levine, known as NANCYRUTH on SCS. I have began stamping 20 years ago, though I put everything in the attic for about 10 of those during the hectic years of my single motherhood. I went to a stamping up party about 5 years ago and the stamping flame was rekindled and i have stamped almost every day since then. I work full time in a lighting store and enjoy my career in sales which allows me to fund my crafting habits. I am also a beader and spend my free time stamping, swimming and making jewelry! I look forward to charting my creative journey through my new blog. Fast forward.... After 13 months of unemployment due to the economic downturn I completed my Therapeutic Recreation certification and now work in a skilled nursing facility creating and implementing recreational programs for the residents. I also had the priviledge of working at Beadz Boutique in Darien Ct. where I fine tuned many of my beading skills!
