Tim Holtz Wild West Stamps

I really think I should have more Western themed items, not because I am a cowgirl or that I dig the theme but for the sheer fact I live in Oklahoma! I do try to make western theme items on occasion since I do know a few cowboys and cowgirls and I think this one will be a good one to use.

The Tim Holtz Wild West stamp set was used for this card but the inside sentiment is one I printed using the Hallmark Studio software. I can't remember the fonts I used, like I said I made these before I went on vacation and that has been almost a month ago now!

The "Wild" is stamped on the striped paper and the "saloon" is stamped on cardstock and then cut out and adhered to the striped paper.

I used my Zutter Distrezz It All to distress the edges of the stamped cowboy image and the mat. I just love that thing and got it from a sales group on Facebook for an excellent price. It will sure keep me from messing up by using scissors or cutting myself. I inked the edges with some Tim Holtz ink. The "rope" is actually jute that I just tied around the image and mat.

I think I might try to make some larger cards using this stamp set because it was hard to fit them on an A2 size card.


  1. Really like the font you used on Drink and Ride. I forgot to get the edge distresser while I was down there last week!

  2. Great Card ! I like the twine on it ! It really added a great touch !

  3. Love, love, love this card and everything about it. What a great look with the colors, the stamped image, twine, brads, paper, stressed edges, sentiments ... ALL of it! This is such an awesome "guy" card ... and for the western loving girl too.
