Sound good? Well Giddy'up! Howdy is one of those great stamp sets that has a ton of elements you can work with again and again and always have a totally different end result. This time, I've paired it with the Deconstructed Sketch of the Week and my new Farmhouse Pattern Paper.
The matting here looks almost like it's black, but it's a beautiful deep navy and I just adore it. Let's take a peek at the newest coordinating set of Cardstock, Buttons, Ribbon and Felt that will be available as part of our October 16th release - Nightshift Blue.
Howdy is a 4x8 sized stamp set and you are going to adore how many images are in this set, it's incredibly huge! In addition to a ton of fun sentiments, you'll find lots of accent stamps, great for adding small details, or building your own backgrounds.
It coordinates with the new Howdy Frames - sold separately. Today I'm using the small circular charm as part of my cluster.
Build your own backgrounds with the Western Backgrounds stamp set. Me, I'm head over heels for the included woodgrain floor background.
Hold your breath. My beloved Fishtail Flags STAX now has a companion! Fishtail Flags Layers STAX (I seriously can't even stand how excited I am about these. They are an absolute MUST have right?) They are the perfect matting to my already well loved Fishtail Flags.
I'm adding in all the products I've used in today's project, but please note that the links for the new products won't be available till after the release on Tuesday night. Thanks for stopping by today!
