Born To Shop

I haven’t bought a craft magazine for ages as part of my New Year’s economy drive not to buy them,  but when I saw this stamp set on the front of DoCrafts Creativity! I just couldn’t resist it, and you know, I don’t do much stamping, so I must have been really tempted!
I’ve kept the card really really simple, with the minimum of colouring. I stamped the “shoppers” backpack on the same paper as the background, cut it out and stuck it over the stamped image and then added a handwritten sentiment and  flat backed gems on her shoes and earrings.
But the best bit has got to be the bag ….. the shop I bought the magazine from was having a bit of a sale and packets of Dress It Up buttons were just 59p ….. I bought a few never thinking I would use any with this stamp, but as you can see it’s perfect!
I’m dead chuffed!

I bought this mag too because the cover stamp was just too good to miss. I love how you've used it and the bag button is just perfect. Brilliant card.

Another triumph. Love the colour combo. What a find, that button bag just fits and the other buttons left are so useable.

Fantastic......I just hope I can find that mag locally. Thanks for the inspiration x

I got that stamp too but would never have thought to do that even though i love paper piecing. Looks totally different with that simple look. Love it.
