Stamper’s Dream Blog Hop

Published by at 6:00 am under JustRite Stampers,Projects in General,Purses

Welcome to the Stamper’s Dream Blog Hop, I’m so thrilled to be here hopping with the uber talented Dream Team! Thank you so much for inviting me to play Michelle   .   .   . mwah!!

Stamper’s Dream is offering up some oh so yummy blog candy. And, since Michelle couldn’t put all the candy in one picture, she’s offering up two giveaways, lucky you! Blog candy photos are at the end of this post. The candy is hidden on two separate blogs, there will be two separate winners. No one knows where the candy is hidden, including us designers. To improve your chances of winning, leave a comment on all the participating designers’ blogs (links provided at the end of this post). The winner will be announced Sunday evening on Michelle’s blog. If you need help finding Michelle’s blog, simply come back here and click on this link: Michelle’s blog.

I designed another purse  .    .    .  yup   .    .    .    I’m at it again  .    .    .  LOL! I drew the outline of the purse last year and saved it. I love Alesa Baker stamps (manufactured by Impression Obsession), they are so right up my alley! To make the purse, I created a template by stamping two different size rose stamps that I received from Stamper’s Dream within the lines of my purse drawing. I masked the roses to have them overlap. I then sketched in a bit of baby’s breath and lines to look like netting. Okay, the lines are a bit squiggly  .   .   .  I prefer to think of it as wrinkles in my netting  .   .   .   LOL! Once the template was complete, I transferred it to water color paper and water colored the image with Tombow markers. I placed Kasiercraft pearls on the baby’s breath and two gold pearls on the clasp. I painted the center of the purse with a mix of Pearl Ex powder, Gum Arabic and water.


I stamped the roses onto mulberry paper with Versamark and embossed with gold embossing powder, I then water colored the images. I attached the mulberry paper to the inside of the card and trimmed the edges. Versamark was applied around the edges of the purse and sprinkled with gold embossing powder and heat embossed. I stamped a sentiment from JustRite’s Friendship Nested Sentiments on the inside of the card.

You can see the striations of the mulberry paper in this photo in the roses, as well as on the white portion. The rose stamp is so beautiful, I used the larger of the two for the inside of the purse.  The butterfly was stamped using a Pergamano Butterfly stamp set.

This photo gives you a better view of the roses and leaves at the bottom of the inside of the card.

When the card is laying flat, it pops up, as shown in this picture. You can see the roses and butterfly.  It looks very pretty laying on a side table surrounded by a bit of greenery.

Tombow markers used for water coloring the card:  Flowers-761, 772, 796, 757, Leaves-020, 025, 076, 098, 177, 249, 277, Butterfly & Top of Purse-025, 985, 993, 977; Bottom of Purse-526.

    182. Diane says:

      The purse looks awesome Jerri! I love the slightly squiggly lines of the netting, it makes it look more realistic, the netting moves around on those purses you know. I think everything you do is perfect anyway. I’m so happy to see so many people found this post, you can’t be one of the best kept secrets in blog land, lol.

    183. Doni says:

    189. Barbara Leonard says:

      Love this purse. And, I don’t think the netting lines are crooked. Real neeting would look like this. If they were too perfect, they would look too fakey.

    239. Susie says:

      My goodness Jerri, look at all the responses! Everyone of these ladies feels like I do. I just love this new creation!! Your top drawer Jerri! An amazing and talented designer. I love it when you just decide to make your own template. My late mother use to say, “girls, there’s not a $1 worth of material in that, let’s go home and make something.” I had to take a second look at the purse closure (my eyes) and then realized how you created it – Brilliant! Question: did you hand paint the edges of the purse and the netting with the Pearl Ex powder and gum arabic?
