Beth and I decided to have DT on Friday this week, as we have both been busy, and I have been sick, so we missed a week. Things are getting back to normal, so here we are with a challenge! Beth challenged me to use Cosmo Cricket papers! I was so excited as I just love their papers! They have one line that I just hoard, WANTED. So, I decided to pull out my cowboy/cowgirl stamps and make a couple cards this time! I had a blast with this weeks challenge! I wanted the cards to be a bit grundgy looking, keeping a real western theme. So many times I wanted to start over again cause it didn't look perfect, but I was determined not to let it get to me! A bit to much ink in one spot, a dot of ink here, a print of ink there....lol...relax Kim....lol...that is what I kept saying to myself!
Please be sure to stop by Beth's blog to see her gorgeous creation!! And, she also has awesome tutorials on her blog, check it out!
Anyway, all the stamps for these cards are from Rubber Stamp Avenue. They have a delicious selection of stamps. I used Cosmo Cricket papers, charms are from Frost Creek, and I even threw in some hemp cord. On the bottom card, I punched holes and sewed the hemp thru the card, and added quite a few teeny brads. I used the new Tim Holtz ruler, and it is amazing! Everything lines up so nicely when you are able to use all the grids that are on the ruler. And the holes, tons of them....at 1/8" apart. So you have alot more choice when decided how close or how far apart to space your brads! I just can't say enough about this ruler, and the price is fantastic!
Well, thanks for dropping by today!
