Hi friends! I hope you’re having a fantastic week! I’m super stoked to finally be able to share that I’m creating samples for Prickley Pear Stamps! I can’t even tell you how much fun I’ve been having playing with these amazing stamps and dies! I’ve created quite a few projects for an upcoming Hochanda show but have to wait until after the show next month to share, so in the meantime I’ll be sharing other samples that I created for the website. The project I’m sharing today is an adorable purse featuring the Blue Without You Bluebonnets clear stamp set which I paired with some pretty cardstock and a purse die set. How stinkin’ cute is this?!

I stamped the bluebonnets in black ink on white cardstock and then die cut all the purse pieces. I colored the flowers with alcohol markers and then assembled the purse. I added a large white flat-back pearl to the flap closure with Velcro on the under side. Super easy construction – with each one I’ve made, they’ve gotten easier to put together. I’ve made five so far and this is the first one I’ve blogged, lol! But stay tuned… you’ll be seeing the others soon! ;)

Here is a shot of the back and another shot from overhead. This little purse is big enough for chocolate or other candy, a gift card or cash!

And one more peek… I’m so happy with how this turned out! Another one added to My Paper Purses page!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
