Yee-Haw Money Holder

I want to take a second to thank everyone who placed their first Holiday Catalog order with me over the weekend! I will be emailing you your free Class Planner this morning! I will accept orders through noon today for this awesome offer!

I also want to thank everyone who left all the fabulous comments on my post about the new catalog! As promised, I picked a name randomly to win the Four Feathers bundle and that person is...
TIFFANY KNUPPE!!!!
Tiffany, I will be empaling you shortly as well! Congratulations!

If you didn't win, don't worry! I've got more awesome giveaways planned in the coming weeks! Make sure you have joined my mailing list and liked my Facebook Page so you won't miss a single one! 

OK, now for today's project! I am in LOVE with the new Photopolymer Yee Haw set as you might imagine! Because I am "Pink Buckaroo" I know this stamp set will get well worn in my office for YEARS to come! 

I used it this weekend to make a money holder birthday card.


It was for a lithe girl, so I used Strawberry Slush along with Baked Brown Sugar and a little Silver Glimmer Paper.  The background is the Hardwood Background Stamp. I also used the new Stapler (LOVE!) and Linen Thread, which I can seem to get enough of these days! And, the new Spiral Punch is a fun addition as well! I added the "Have A" using the large Handheld Alphabet stamp. 

I used the Envelope Punch Board inside to create the money holder. 

Ok my friends, I hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend! And now, the countdown begins for all the Fall fun!! Have a great Tuesday!

Blendabilities and Kraft Video

Hello and happy Friday!
I'm sharing a super cute project today that I created with Blendabilities. 

Blendabilities behave much differently on Kraft paper. I like the way they act! They really saturate the paper quickly. Blending is a lot different, so you will need to practice. In fact, I made you a video! :-)


I love these Petite Cafe Gift Bags in the Holiday Catalog (p. 10.) I've used my entire package of them already!


The stamp set I used is my favorite stamp set in the Holiday Catalog; Santa Stache. And, if you get this set, yo have to have the Mustache Framelit to go with it of course!! :-)

Fancy Friday! Yee Haw!

Welcome to....
Fancy Friday!! Wahoo! Fancy Friday is a bog hop that last year's Artisan Design Team has decided to do. We are all such fans of each other and were really sad to not be working on anything together, so we decided to come up with a fun monthly blog hop! Hooray!

This month, we all used the following picture for inspiration:


I LOVE every single one of these colors. But I struggle when I have to incorporate lots of colors into one project. I had just received my Yee Haw stamp set and really wanted to use it.... So, I decided to do a sunset background using my good old Brayer and the Blackberry Bliss, Tangelo Twist and Real Red.  (Shhh.. But I used just a TINY bit of yellow at the bottom too! SHH! :-)

Have you ever tried using a Brayer to create a background? It's fun but messy! Google it and lots of videos will come up. I got to see a demo while at convention but had to watch  it again before I created this card.

And do you see my shout out to my friend Jane? That cardboard is from a SU box sitting here in my office. She is the fist person I ever saw use it in a project and I knew I would love her even before I met her!! LOL! Isn't that crazy! But, it's awesome and so appropriate for this kind of card I think! 
The lasso is stamped on Vellum. If you see a tiny bit of blue sticking out of the hat that's because I did it in Indigo first and didn't like it. But, I couldn't pull it up with out wrecking the whole stack. So, once again,Shhh! Pretend you don't see it!! 

Now, we are giving away a stamp set this month! You probably have already ready that on the other girl's blogs, but here it is again: 
 Be sure to leave a comment on any of our blogs with a link back to your creation, and ONE lucky participant will win! Here are the rules for the challenge: 1. Leave a comment on one of our blogs with a link to your creation, comments/links MUST be left by Friday, September 19th 7:00 PM MST in order to be eligible for the prize. 2. Please use the color palette provided. You can use any combination or all of the colors provided as well as any neutrals. Although SU colors are listed, you can use any colors you have on hand as long as they are similar. 3. You MUST put a link in your post back to the challenge. *Winner will be announced during the September Fancy Friday Blog Hop! (the last Friday of September).

OK, that's it for this week from me! Your off to Jane Lee's blog next! Have fun hopping along!
