Howdy Y'all - Wrangle the MFT VIP Collection Today

Howdy y'all and thanks for moseying on over today.  The brand new Country Charms MFT VIP Collection is available NOW, so head over and buy it HERE before it sells out.  These usually sell out FAST, so act quickly.  As a special perk, you'll receive a FREE mini stamp set full of ADORABLE sentiments, which I used on my cards today.  I adore the cute Pure Innocence Cowboy and Cowgirl.  They are SO cute!

First up, my card using Cowboy.  I wanted a simple layout for this one.

After I laid the colored image over the patterned paper it looked a little too crisp, clean, and pristine to me, so grabbed my ink splatter tool from SU and spritzed some Basic Gray ink over the colored image.  Cowboys are dirty.  I used the cute star charm from Country Charms Die-namics.  Some random stitching completed the focal panel.

The charm includes a charm loop and some fun embossing detail.

I used the ADORABLE "Much Obliged" sentiment on this one.  I can just HEAR him saying it.  SO cute.  I roughed up the edges and ripped it to add a distressed look.  As I mentioned before, Cowboys have to be dirty.  It's what they do.  

I finished off the inside with more patterned paper from the pack (MME) and another sentiment from the FREE VIP sentiment set.

This is the patterned paper pad I used from MME.  I wanted to snap a quick pic to show you my Copic color matches.  I have explained before that I color match my patterned paper pads and jot them on the cover so next time I use it, I can skip that step.

While I was making my Cowgirl Pure Innocence card I needed a Tab Die-namics and decided to snap a photo of my "tab method" for you.  I have 2 of each tab, and when I need one, I go ahead and grab all of them, lay them out on my cutting mat on card stock, and cut eight at once.  Then I throw them on my desk and grab one when I need it.  I also cut them from Kraft and Cream when the time calls for it.  This saves me a step next time, AND provides inspiration for later.

Next up we have Cowgirl Pure Innocence.  She has definite flair in her bright orange hat, boots, and belt.  I created a "roping rope" and hot glued it to her.  Her skirt is paper-pieced from denim patterned paper.  

The sentiment was stamped on the Oval Tab Die-namics.

These roses were made with the new Royal Rose Die-namics.  For the teal flower, I used two die-cuts to make a larger flower.  I completely rolled the first one, snipped off the "base" then started the next flower.  It's a quick way to make a more substantial flower.  I used leaves I had in my "felt Die-namics extras" drawer.  Yep... I have a drawer for everything.  LOL

I finished the inside with another sentiment from the FREE VIP Mini Sentiments set.  LOVE this one.  The boot is another charm included in Country Charms Die-namics.
