Back at the Outlawz Ranch Party

There's a party going on over at the OUTLAWZ, Giddy-up over there and have some fun!  

This is my card for the Sunday CAS challenge.  

This is the inspiration photo.

Love these boots!  My eye went to the white stars on the dark background....they just jumped right out there so here's my card for the CAS challenge.

It doesn't get much simpler than this....Kraft Card Stock is from Gina K Pure Luxury line.  Stars were cut with my Quikcutz (haven't used that in eons) out of GKD White CS and they were layered on "In the Navy" also by GKD.  The "Howdy" stamp is from the Stamp Set "Out West" by Theresa Momber.  

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great holiday weekend.

Color Challenge at Stamp TV

Hello blogger friends!  

Can you believe it's mid-February?  Time seems to fly so quickly these days.  
Stamp TV has another color challenge going on - so join in and play along.  The colors this week are 

If you don't have the GKD pure luxury CS papers/colors choose what you have in your stash that's close and join in.  The winner (selected at random) will receive a brand new stamp set (valued up to $24.95) by GKD.  
I've been working on the CAS (clean and simple) technique and thought this would be a fun color group to create a CAS card with. 

I used the CS for framing the image which was stamped using 3 stamp sets by Melanie Muenchinger (one of them was a WIN) - "Pressed Flowers", "A Year of Flowers" and for the sentiment, "Arranged with Love".  I used Memento inks, "London Fog" and "Tangelo".  At first I was going to use a mask for the flowers, but then after trying it with a more transparent/shadowy look, I decided I liked it much better.  This was a very easy and quick card to put together.  Give the color challenge a try and have some fun.  All products can be purchased at Stamptv

Thanks for stopping by - have a great week and a very Happy Valentine's Day!
