Revised Mother's Day Purses

So sorry I didn't post over the weekend but I was super busy working on items for the upcoming Mother's Day Boutique on Saturday April 29th in Round Rock.  I'll post a pic with an address below please join us, we will have many artisans with a variety of different items for you and your mom.  I was working on revising the Mother's Day purses and you can see they are brighter and more lively.  Let me know what you think and if you would like the directions I am going to be making a YouTube video soon.  Check out my channel at Malissa Stamps.  Below as always is the list of supplies needed.  If I can help with any supplies or questions please let me know I'm always here for you!

Happy Crafting!

Supplies you'll need:
Various colors of cardstock (Stampin Up!)
Ribbon (I used a grosgrain from Wal-Mart it wasn't as inexpensive as I'd like but it worked and was exactly what I wanted)
Nice Cuppa Stamp Set (Stampin Up!)
Various ink colors (Stampin Up!)

Custom T Shirt Bundle Card

This T shirt card just came together so nicely.  I love the colors and textures and was delighted to see it when it was finished.  You know some projects you finish and go meh and others you go wow!  This one was closer to the wow side.  This one was made with several different elements and I'm sure you could substitute them out if you don't have all the pieces.  Embossing folder would work instead of the wood stamp background and any flower will work but you know we're all about - look at what I did now see if you can case it and give it a twist!  I think that is one of the best things about our community of stampers.  So please try this one out and let me know what you come up with, I'm eager to see. 

On another note I do have a make shift blog hop happening right now the link is below.  Please join the experiment and add your DBWS or your blog and I will have a for real one going next month.  I am working out the kinks right now on the existing one, it's my first so there are definitely kinks.  Leave me feedback on how easy or difficult it was to sign up please and thank you for helping out!

Mother's Day Purse

Since Mother's Day is right around the corner I thought I would get a jump on creating something unique and fun for all those moms out there.  This little purse has a pocket that opens up when you unhook the Velcro.  It's quite a large pocket and I was able to fit an EOS, 5 Dove Chocolates and 3 Peppermints and there is still room for more!  Wow it's spacious lol. 

I will be giving one of these purses away this Wednesday for my Winning Wednesday contest so be sure to check back then and enter to win.  Here is the supply list and if you need any Stampin' Up! supplies you can order right here on my site using the Shop Now button.

Ribbon of Courage Box

Here is my first project with the new products that I received from the 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! catalog at On Stage.  This set is called Ribbon of Courage and I thought it was fitting to make this ribbon the star of the show.  I did a breast cancer box.  My grandmother and sister both have had breast cancer.  This ribbon is near and dear to me.  

I placed two ribbons together, after fussy cutting them out (we do not have the dies available to us just yet but they are coming) and used dimensionals to pop them together.  I love the way this turned out and I hope you enjoy it too!  Here are the supplies needed and if you would like directions please send me a message and I'll get them to you right away!
