Kickin’ it cowgirl style

9/14/22 Top 3 at FarmQuest Challenge Blog!

Hey everybody! Happy Saturday to you all – I hope you have something fun planned this weekend! We are waking up to cooler temps here in southwestern Colorado and it’s wonderful! I’m absolutely delighted to share my debut Keep It Simple DT inspiration project with you today featuring stamps and dies from the new Little Cowgirl Birthday release! OMGoodness, can you say adorable?! I used the Little Cowgirl Birthday Collection Stamp & Die Bundle and Little Cowgirl Birthday Sentiments, as well as the Back to Basics Rose Collection Pack and Back to Basics Rose Enamel Hearts already in the store for this split panel birthday card!

I used Basis 110# White cardstock for the A2 size card base and adhered panels cut from the Back to Basics Rose Collection Pack. I stamped the image from the Little Cowgirl Birthday stamps in black ink, stamped it again in Versamark, and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I colored the image with alcohol markers and die cut it with a die from the coordinating Little Cowgirl Birthday outline dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Little Cowgirl Sentiments stamps in black ink in the upper right corner, then adhered the image to the card front. I added tiny iridescent gemstones (from my stash) to her dress and two Back To Basics Rose Enamel Hearts which completed the card front.

For the inside, I adhered a panel cut from the Back to Basics Rose Collection Pack. I added two smaller panels and a strip cut from Basis White cardstock, then stamped the sentiment (from the same Little Cowgirl Sentiments stamps) in black ink.

And one more look… I really love how this card turned out! The products in this new release are amazing and so fun to work with! You can’t go wrong with a cowgirl-themed birthday card! ;)

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
