Rosey Artiste purse!

Hello, friends!

 Today I have another project made using the Artiste cartridge! This is a really awesome cut! I can see it being used for showers or birthday parties. It has the cutest little pocket in the front, that would easily fit a gift card or a tag!

I cut the bag out at 5". I used a new paper pack that is in the Close To My Heart Autumn/Winter catalog called Flirt!

I cut the roses out at 2 1/2" and the leaves out at 1/2".

For the closure I used a rhinestone brad from Close To My heart

 Thank you so much for stopping by! I will be back here tomorrow with a winner of last Thursday's giveaway!

Here is a list of stamps that coordinate with the Art philosophy cartridge that are retiring. Below is the list and if you click on the name it will take you to my website, so you can take a look at the set. These will go fast, so get them while you can!

This is so adorable. Great for gift cards. I made a dozen of this type of thingy for my class reunion and put wrapped mints as favors. Everyone loved them. Only difference I had to do most of the work that the Cricut would do for me. This is just an awesome cartridge!

Oh my goodness what a cute purse and my dear you did an awesome job on the flowers the colors are so pretty.

If wishes were dollars there are so many of the retiring stamps I'd love to have especially the snowflake ones but saving my $'s for Aug 1 to order the Artiste it's a ying yang situation.
