Creative Nugget: The Ride 'Em Cowboy image was stamped on the paper from the Patriotic Collection and that along with a coordinating paper were cut with the Star Quilt Die. The pieces from the image were then carefully inlaid back into the Star Quilt frame. Additional pieces of paper were cut to frame the image and fill the 5 1/2" card base. The sentiment was cut with a Circle Die and matted with one of the Pierced Circle Dies. A lasso made with jute was added to finish the card.
My second card was made with the new Howdy stamp set.
Creative Nugget: Pieces of card stock and papers from the Cozy Quilt Collection and the Blooming Garden Collection were cut into triangles and stitched to the card front to form the rays behind the cowboy image. The Grass Border was cut twice and layered over the rays. A stencil was placed over a watercolor wash on Mixed Media paper and allowed to air dry to make a background for the cowboy image from the Howdy stamp set. This panel and the mats were cut with the Circle Dies and the Pierced Circle Dies. The sentiment was also stamped on the watercolored background and cut with a Double Stitched Rectangle Die. The cactus was stamped several times, fussy cut, and added to finish the card.
