Saddle Up!

I just love the My Favorite Things Stamps! This cute little cowgirl has been in my head for awhile and I just couldn't figure out what kinda card to do with her. Finally I thought of it. This was another one that took a couple of days to get from my head to the paper.

I used Stamped for the mats and the strip of paper. I used Fabulous Finds for the bookplate. The card mat was embossed with the cuttlebug using the Paisley folder and then lightly inked. The sentiment is computer generated. The font is with Abilene in MS word.

I don't know if I am really happy with the colors. I did use the SU Color Combo's site to get the colors but since the papers aren't Stampin Up I used the closest I could find in my stash. Yes I do have some Stampin Up card stock.....but I still refuse to use it....I don't care what Mandy Ferg says!! *okie cracks up laughin*

Here is a close up of the image. I did the double image trick and cut out the skirt and boots and pop dotted them on to the base image. The background is some cloud paper I got at WM in the office section. I used Stampin Up markers to color the image. I used diamond Stickles on the boots and Glossy Dimensions on the rope to give it a little pop.

Here is a close up of the inside. I usually make a table when I want to print inside images in cards that way I can set the size I want for easy cutting. This time I chose a border from MS word on the table and deleted the parts I didnt need. I used a white Signo pen to do the doodling around the white mat. I also cut a piece of card stock and adhered to the inside to hid the brads from the bookplate and the stars.


  1. Fabulous card and I love the colors you used.
