Feeling a Little Bit Country?

Then you’ll want to check out these wonderful cards created with the Country Livin’ stamp set. This set is filled with wonderful images evoking childhood memories and perfect for creating cards for our guys.

I love the way this fancy fold card uses the Wood Texture Designer Series Paper Stack (144177) to give you the feel of weathered barn wood.

And this card using the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies (141706) and Hexagons Embossing Folder (143231) has lots of texture. Do you recognize the sentiment?

It’s from the Pretty Kitty stamp set (141861/141864).

And this card teams up the Country Livin’ set with our new Gallery Grunge and Country Road stamp sets.

The Gallery Grunge set gives you all kinds of great images to create backgrounds and texture.


Stamp Set: Gallery Grunge (146535/146538), Country Road (147466/147469), and  Country Livin’ (141922/141925)

On Stage, Country Living & More

Wow, it has been a world wind 7 days with lots of fun, laughter, and friends! I’ve got lots to share with you, but today I’m going to share a card that I created for my On Stage Shoebox Swap with Sherrie and more!

I’ve waited 8 years to get to go to a Stampin’ Up! event in Salt Lake and it was well worth the wait – I had a blast and can’t wait for the next On Stage in April, after all I always enjoy stamping with 2,700 of my closest friends. LOL!

My roommate Marnie and I  took off in the wee morning on Tuesday, ready for adventure.

We arrived in Salt Lake ready to check out the city – a quick peek out our window after we checked in (what a view)

And then enjoyed the stroll around Temple Square which included an organ recital there,

and the City Creek Center, which was an outdoor mall where we had lunch at the Blue Lemon, yum.

I couldn’t resist stopping in the chocolate shop, Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, which smelled heavenly and picking something up for my hubby, Larry whom I’m left at home. As many of you know he is a chocolate fiend!

And of course we had to check out the Salt Lake Palace Convention Center.

It was fun to see all the Stampin’ Up! On Stage Banners on the posts. It was a full day for sure.

Wednesday, I did a Sherrie’s Shoebox Swap so today I thought I would share a tutorial for my card with you. Want to see the card? I really loved the way it turned out.

Here is the card I created.

I call it Boots and Bandanas – can you see my old-fashioned bandana in the background that I created with the Paisley & Posies Stamp Set. Larry didn’t I had to explain it to him, he just shrugged at me – men lol.

Here is the tutorial for you so you can make one too.
