I'm the Boss Lady

Ok, not really, but I am in love. With this stamp. Seriously. There are a couple more that I need, and I have forgotten the company but I think it's Mrs. O'Leary's or something like that. They were having a trunk show at Stamp Asylum in Plano, and I was right there, so I HAD to stop, right?!

ETA: I have located Mrs. O'Leary's website, although I cannot find the stamps there that I saw at the trunk show. If you want to order them, I'd suggest shooting her an email. Happy Shopping!

I couldn't wait to ink this one up...she was just sooo cool. I stamped her in Palette Hybrid Noir on Papertrey White Cardstock, and then colored her with Prismacolors & Odorless Mineral Spirits. I matted her on Basic Black cardstock and did some white stitching around the edges.

I was actually attempting to do Beate's weekend sketch for this card, but it just didn't work out that way. I used my favorite cowgirl color combo, Real Red, Creamy Caramel, & Barely Banana, with a little black thrown in. I stamped the Caramel strip with my Paisley BG stamp in Close to Cocoa Ink, matted on Real red, and then sponged the edges with Cocoa & Chocolate Chip ink. I found this bandana print paper (no idea who makes it but I got it at Michael's forever ago), and stitched the red/caramel strip onto it. The gingham ribbon added some more cowgirl vibes.

I used the ticket corner punch to make a little cutout for the silver brads, layered onto Basic Black cardstock, and then adhered to my Banana Card base. The main image is popped up on UBER pop dots (the big mommas), which I love.

Hope you've enjoyed my little piece of Texas...have a great night!
