Howdy Pardner!

Howdy! I wanted to share with you a cute little bag I created using the new release called "Ride em Cowgirl" from My Favorite Things. Two new sets will be released tomorrow night (Wednesday) after the release party (8-10 p.m. central time) on Splitcoaststampers. Go check out the trivia thread for your chance to win BOTH new releases!

For this bag, I stamped the main image, on white cardstock and on two different pieces of designer paper (Cosmo Cricket-Wanted). I pieced the main image (cut out the parts I wanted from each and layered over the main image on the white cardstock).

I used my Scor-Pal to create an embossed border in the background. The whole front section was assembled and attached to the bag using Scor-Tape (this stuff really keeps it together!)

I used my Stampin' Up! Star punches for different accents. I added a hemp rope in her hands and used darker hemp to braid for the handle. I attached the handle through holes punched in the stars at the top.

Here is a close of of the main image and of the embossing in the background:

Here is a close up of the handle and tag AND the stamped tissue. I used the little star in the set and stamped the image all over the tissue inside the bag. Love how this little detail adds so much to this project.
