ArtfulINKables Blog Hop...

I have two posts running current this morning...please scroll down to see my DRS Designs Blog Challenge post...

Welcome to another ArtfulINKables blog hop!!! Krtistin is releasing 4 more new sets today!! You'll find everything from boys, to music to a western theme in this fun release. If you stopped here first you might want to backtrack and visit Kristin for the first stop in the hop and hop your way back to me!!

My project for the hop is this fun card using images from Rodeo Rodent...a set of 8 fun images...



Since everyone else seems to be using the "rodent" himself, I decided to highlight some of the other images in the set! I simply stamped all the images in black on the kraft paper and colored just the cacti with my markers. I brushed some white craft ink along the edges of the base panel. Some brads and jewels on the star finished things off. Isn't the ribbon pretty? You can find this one and a ton of others along with some great charms in the AI store.

Thanks for stopping by, your next stop in the hop is Holly's blog...be sure to check all the DT blogs to find great inspiration for these four new sets!!

See you soon...

This is fabulous, Cathy! I also love the horseshoe border and the different approach you took with this stamp set.

BTW, after reading your About Me, it would appear we have a few things in common: paper-crafting, coffee, and Disney!

Cute card, but kinda prickly!

Kelli said...

The Cacti (lol) make a GREAT card all by themselves.... Looks great and especially on Kraft....

Your card is amazing! I wasn't sure that I would like the rest of the elements of this set without the rodent, but you showcased it so well!
