2 New Design Team Members and A Wonderful Guest Designer

Hi All,
Forgive us, it has been a while since we have posted. We essentially had two shows back to back, that needed our attention. But, we are back to posting! We were luck enough to see loads of talent with our most recent design team call. And they were hard choices to make, but we found 3 new ladies to join our team. I want to share their work with you know.

First we have a beautiful card done up by Tracy. A simple strand of pearls and all white embossed matting really set off our Spring Cross, and give this card a beautiful understatement.

Next a super cool card done up by Leslie. I just love this cowboy card. Now for here card and in her words.

Howdy Partner

This year, I promised myself that I would make every effort to make my special occasion cards and deliver them on time this year. So, in looking through my stash of Prickley Pear stamps, I decided that the cowboy theme fit very nicely with Father's Day. Here's what I came up with:

The front panel was stamped on an MFT cream perfect panel. On the inside, I decided to use several pieces of twine to hold my easel card open. Both stars were cut with my cricut, embossed with a cuttlebug folder, and the larger star was scored and folded for a 3-D Texas star effect. Both stars were also sponged with distress inks for added depth.

Paper: MFT cream perfect panel, Bazzil preppie, craft cardstock
Stamps: Prickey Pear - cowboy, windmill, howdy partner, happy father's day
Inks: Memento - Rich Cocoa, Brilliance - Chocolate, Distress Ink - Vintage Photo, Tea Dye
Accessories: twine, cricut, cuttlebug embossing folder - victoria, scoreboard, distressing tool
