Here are my creations using the Howdy stamp set!!  I just love the silhouette!! It is so much fun to create scenes with!!

I used the Sunburst die and sponged it with different hues of orange and yellow to create my background.  The rectangular scene is created with the Howdy stamp set as is the circular panel.  The clouds in the scene are created with Clouds from the Clouds and Raindrops dies.  The star is also sponged and uses the Double Stitched Stars and Sparkling Stars dies layered.

ODBD Stamps: Howdy

 My second creation uses the same Howdy stamp set but with a different look.  I used a piece of dp from Authentique that reminds me of Southwest with the Houndstooth pattern.

The sentiment panel is cut out with the Squares and Double Stitched Squares dies and is distressed with Tim Holtz ink.

I am loving the layers Chris on your cards! They are so neatly done and eye appealing - love the rope on the Western card as well - Yee Haw - super duper cool -TFS and for the hop!

WOW! I love both of them, especially the first. Color and beautiful!

DigiDottie said...

Both cards are great, but I especially love the first one -- the "sunset" colors remind me of cowboys riding off into the sunset ...

Tricia Coffin said...

I love the depth of stitched layers of your first card. That looks so crisp and durable. The color choices are wonderful. The hounds tooth background of the second card looks warm, like fabric. A job very well done on both cards.

Lorraine said...

Beautiful! I love the creativity in the background papers and combinations of patterns.

Sue D said...

FAbulous. Love the sunburst on the first and the houndstooth on the second.
