Howdy Cowboy! It’s New Release Day!

It is time for another fun release from Simon Says Stamp!

Today, I am sharing two cards I created using the new stamp set, “Howdy.” This cute set is full of lots of western icons, two adorable little cowgirls, and some fun sentiments.

To create the background, I ink blended the following Distress Oxides colors:

  • Fossilized Amber
  • Carved Pumpkin
  • Picked Raspberries
  • Seedless Preserves

I wanted the background to mimic a desert sunset.

I stamped the cowgirl in Momento Tuxedo Black ink and colored her with Copic markers. There are dies available for this stamp set, but I did not have them, so I fussy cut her.

Next, I die cut the letters from Lawn Fawn’s Olliver’s ABC’s and adhered them to the background.

Then, I added foam adhesive to the back of the cowgirl and adhered her to the card. To finish the card, I adhered it to an A2 card base.

To begin, I stamped the cowgirl in Momento Tuxedo Black Ink onto cardstock and also onto a piece of GinaK Masking Magic. I cut out the mask and covered up the cowgirl image. I did a little ink blending using Worn Lipstick and Tea Dye. I splattered white, acrylic paint to add texture to the ground.

I removed the mask, and used Copic markers to color the image and then die cut it with a circle die. I also die cut a scalloped circle and adhered the two together.

Next, I created the patterned background by stamping various images from the set in Concord and 9th Dove Ink.

I thought the card needed a bit more color, so I die cut a green banner and adhered it to the card and added the circles on top. Then I stamped the sentiment below.

Lastly, I adhered the whole panel to a grey A2 top folding card base.

I had so much fun creating with this darling set!
