love......western style

Howdy there!  We are having glorious weather today.  I hope you are too.  So why am I inside?  Well, I just came in from watering the garden.  The aphids have left and the zuccs and pumpkins are trying to make a comeback.  Hey, if they are willing then so am I.  

Anyway, I was thinking about you and I've been meaning to post something.  So I was trolling through my pics looking to see what I haven't shown you yet and I got alot.  So I'm getting on it. 

Over summer we were invited to a wedding that we couldn't go to.  It was a western theme and I know I would have loved it.  I tried to make their card western looking.  What do you think?


From my Heart set.  Whisper white and Crumb cake inks, versamark pen.  Basic black and crumb cake cardstock.  Big shot, woodgrain embossing folder, pearls, label framelits, white embossing powder, expressions thinlits, burlap ribbon, natural trim and white gel pen.

This is 4 1/4" square card.    I used the Versamark pen to ink up just the frame part of one of the stamps in the From my Heart set, stamped and embossed.  It looks kinda sketchy but I figured it just makes is look........... older, I guess you would say.  Maybe "worn" is a better word.  Yep, I think I like "worn" better. 




It was a slighty thicker card but it wasn't overly bumpy.  I didn't use extra postage. 

When using the Expressions Thinlits, make sure you put a piece of wax paper or parchment paper between the die and your cardstock.  It makes it much easier to remove the word from the die.  I'm going to have a tutorial coming up with how to do that. 




A few pearls........it was for a wedding after all. 


Alrighty then.  I still need to get pics of the cards we did at my Holiday Card Class.  I want to get that thinlit tutorial out first.  I'll get right on that. 


Thanks so much for stopping by and checking in.  I love when you do that.

Blessings, b.
