Crafty Ones, Don’t Forget!
And now, a fun card I created when I played around with the
Freshly Made Sketches # 180 this morning.
I wanted to use my new SU Bootiful Occasions stamp set. I kept thinking I had some bandana patterned paper around somewhere that I thought would go well with it. So I spent a while searching for it and eventually found it in an unpacked box from a move over a year ago!! Now, the color in the paper perfectly matched a long retired favorite of mine- Creamy Caramel. I had a whole pack in a file box! I am such a craft hoarder! So, here is what transpired along with the SU Hardwood Background stamp…
I used the Ticket Duo Builder Punch for the sentiment and the strip of stars from one of the accessory dies in the SU Mini Treat Bag Thinlits. I was ready to punch out the stars from the die cut strip of Basic Black then liked it as it was. So, I carefully adhered it to the card. And, of course, I had to add a little lasso, too.
I have to say, I really never thought I would order the Bootiful Occasions stamp set but it kept growing on me every time I saw it somewhere- especially that cowboy boot! I love the “Kick up yer heels” but cut it out and used the Happy Boot Day that worked with the Freshly Made Sketch this round. It’s actually a year round kind of stamp set:)
