Cowboy Birthday Wishes
Hello everyone, boy sometimes it seems hard to find time to put up a blog post. Thanks for sticking with me a visiting when you can.
Today is my BFF's husbands birthday, he always dresses toward the cowboy style so when I got this Dakota paper pack from CTMH, I knew it would be perfect to make him a birthday card with.
Both the paisley print and the striped paper are from the Dakota paper pack.
The pocket I cut using the CTMH Artiste cartridge, it was cut using plain white card stock, then I sprayed it with Cornflower Blue Walnut Ink by Tsukineko.
I love this stuff because not only does it give your paper color it also adds kind of a textured look and feel to it. I added a few rivets to the corners then stamped the sentiment with a stamp from Mark's Finest stamps, while you are there take a look around they have a lot of fabulous stamps.
The pocket watch was cut from the Sophisticated cartridge. I layered all the pieces then covered the "face" of the watch with Liquid Glass.
I guess I forgot to take a picture of the inside :/ but it was simple using the same papers from the outside and I stamped it with a stamp that said
"Party till the Cows come home"
Well thanks for stopping by today and you still have a week left to take advantage of National Stamping month at CTMH, if you spend $35 you will get a double stamp set for just $5.
I am also running a special that you still have time to get in on, till September 30th if you order either the Art Philosophy cartridge or the Artiste cartridge from my CTMH website HERE, I will send you a FREE one C size stamp set of your choice and a $9.95 paper pack of your choice. Just email me with your choices after you place the order. Both of these are fabulous cartridges and each comes with 3 coordinating stamp sets and chipboard cuts that match the stamps.
