Prickley Pear Monday

Hi folks! Almost a week since I last blogged. Times flies! And I’m never at home. Sigh. Anyway, I have a few projects to share from the Crop I attended last weekend (had sooooo much fun!!!!) but I’ll save that for tomorrow and share today’s Prickley Pear project. My fellow Riddershom Design DT Mona Gry made such a beautiful Double Pocket Bag card a while ago and I had to try it out! So here is my take.

Väska 1a

I used a beautiful paper from Pink Paislee Nantucket teamed up with some Kraft details. Blue and brown = ♥. I didn’t have the “right” ribbon, so I colored some white satin ribbon with my Distress stains Old paper. I’m not sure you can see it, but it' turned out with a perfect color to go with the bag (which is more greenish than shows on the photo, bad lightning).

Here is a close up of the stamp Music Printers Label. Such a gorgeous stamp. You can Hcolor it and it will turn out wonderful, but it works “plain” too. It has such details"! I had plans of a vintage/shabby bag with loads of embellies, but once I saw the label matted on a kraft doily it was done. Quick and easy. Love that!

I’m just home for a day, tomorrow I’ll hit the roads again. Sorry if it was a while since I last visited you. I’m working on expanding both my craft time and my computer time. Maybe some day… I’ll take a tour later tonight.

The Prickley Pear blog is filled with gorgeous creations by the amazing DT – I’m so happy to be part of it! :) Go check it out! HERE! :)

Your bag card is so, so beautiful, Tesa! Really love blue and brown together, too, so this is right up my alley. Such a gorgeous design. Love that music label paired with the kraft doily die cut. :)
