Howdy My Friend General Greeting Cards

Howdy my friend!

Today’s creation is really a mix of several Lawn Fawn products to create my own theme general greeting cards.

I really adore the critters from Party Animals set, especially the bear.  I don’t know why, he is just so chubby and cuddly!

So today, I decided to transform him to a cool bear…a cowboy bear!

This is what I have created with the use of 4 different Lawn Fawn clear stamps set.

The cowboy hat and bear are stamped with Lawn Fawn Fawndamental Dye Ink and the image is colored with Copic Sketch Markers.  Images are mask with my usual Post-It before I get to work on my background.

I use distress ink pads to blend the background with the mini round blending tool.  All the cacti are stamped using distress ink pad.

Using MFT In&Out Stitched Rounded Square Stax, the image is cut out and temporarily layered on a dark brown cardstock to determine the position of the sentiment to be stamped.

The sentiment “Howdy” is from Lawn Fawn Stuck On You set while “my friend” is from Lawn Fawn Hello Friend set.  Sentiment is stamped with Watermark ink and embossed with Ranger Embossing Powder - Tan.

For this card, I have decided to mat the stamped image with two layers of card stock.  First is the dark brown which I have stamped the sentiment, and finally, this whole image is layered on a kraft card stock as I find it matches the embossed sentiment quite well.

The whole design is then adhered to card base using foam tape.

I hope you like this creation and here’s a quick look at three of the stamp sets I have used.

You will find that these are great stamps to have for other uses or for creating different occasion and theme, especially “Hats Off to You”.

Alrightie folks, I shall be back again tomorrow with a new challenge with Colour Me…!  The next colour palette will bring a smile to you, it will be a such a sweet colour palette!  Stay tuned!
