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!
