Winter Wonderland Handbag

Hello friends!! Today I want to show you a super cool project I made for Z Becky Brown, I am so in love with this design I will show you several pictures of it. This is a very Christmas design, the cool thing is that you can design your own patterns as I did here, I used the White Ziva Paper Inserts, they come in a pack of 5 different colors.

The handbag I used is Gold Hardware Burnt Bamboo Handle, but you can design you own bag with whatever handle style you like.

Here are the details:
  • Start in with your White Ziva Paper Inserts, stamp images all around (Please notice that the top  is slightly longer than the bottom). Stamp cabin in Memento Tuxedo Black, trees in Olive Archival Ink. The decorative snowflake was stamped in Versamark Ink, then added clear embossing powder and heat set.
  • Color cabin with markers, I used Spectrum Noir Markers:
  • Sponge all around the top areas, starting with Tumbled GlassBroken China, a little bit of Faded Jeans and finally Stormy Sky Distress Inks.
  • Stamp sentiment in Jet Black Archival, then stamp little flower swirl in Coffee Archival Ink.
  • Add little dots all around the background to create a snowy scenery, I used W=a White Uniball pen.
  • To decorate the handle, I made a big double bow, die-cut poinsettia flowers using Spellbinders dies and red felt, add few pearls.

Here are the pictures:


Stamps used for this project:
  • Winter Season, Magnificent Spruce Trees, Peaceful night (Heartfelt Creations)
