Packed for Mom - Freshly Made

When I first saw these sets in the Occasions Mini, my first reaction was, "Meh...I don't need those." But I participated in a book-a-thon in October and December and all the participants got all kind of goodies JUST for participating! Those who booked workshops (like me!) got even MORE awesome stuff and the Packed for Mom stamp was among the goodness! mom's birthday is on March 11th. I'm PRETTY sure she doesn't read my blog, so I think I'm safe in posting this. If she sees it, it just gives me an excuse to stamp again, doesn't it? LOL!

I started off using the Freshly Made Sketch for this week:

but I wanted to something just a little different, so I went round:

I started off with a Real Red base and ran two 1/2 sheets through my Big Shot at the same time using the Scallop Circle Die. I added a piece of First Edition Designer Series Paper as a layer under the strips of Real Red.

The image panel was stamped on Very Vanilla using Basic Black Ink. I stamped the purse a second time and cut it out, coloured it and adhered it with Stampin' Dimensionals.

What do you think?

STAMPS: Packed for Mom
INK: Basic Black
PAPERS: Real Red and Very Vanilla Cardstock; First Edition DSP
ACCESSORIES: Big Shot Baby!, Scallop Circle Die, Stampin' Write Marker, Stampin' Dimensionals

Happy Stampin'!
