Some Prettie Exciting News!!!

Happy Thursday everyone!!! :D So today is the day, the day I can spill the beans on some prettie exciting news I received a few weeks ago. I am so proud to announce that I will be one of the Paper Pretties Guest Designers for the next three months (Oct. - Dec.). :D I am so grateful for the opportunity that Jessie and Christie, the owner of Paper Pretties have given me. I can't wait to create more with these amazing line of stamps, I just love my pretties!!! :D You should also check out the other guest designers that I will be joining, they are Stephanie Hargis, Frances Byrne and Christi Thorsen...and they are absolutely amazing!!! :D

Well let's get to it, here is my first card as a prettie guest designer. I used Howdy Girlfriend and isn't she just adorable! :D I thought Sophia would look great paired with my Sarsaparilla dp from CTMH. My base is a 4.5" x 4.5" piece of Desert Sand CS. I added a 3" piece of dp to one side and a 1.5" piece of Black CS that I ran through my Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots folder to the other. I then added a 1" piece of Crystal Blue CS to cover the seam between the two and scissor distressed the edges of the CS and dp to give it that rustic cowgirl look! :D

Stamps: Howdy Girlfriend (Paper Pretties) Paper: Sarsaparilla dp and Black, Barn Red and Crystal Blue, Desert Sand & White Daisy CS (CTMH) Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black, Copics and Desert Sand Ink (CTMH) Accents: Pewter Brads (CTMH), CB Swiss Dots & Circle Nesties

Next I went to work on little Sophia. I stamped her onto White Daisy CS using Brilliance Graphite Black Ink. I then colored her with my copics and cut her out using my cirlce nesties. And since I was going with a rustic look I inked the edges with Desert Sand ink, and then pop dotted her onto my base. For the sentiment, I stamped Howdy Girlfriend in Brilliance Graphite Black ink onto White Daisy CS. I then inked the edges with Desert Sand ink and layered it onto a piece of Barn Red CS and scissor distressed the edges. I then added two pewter brads and pop dotted it onto my base, and that's it...easy peasy! :D Well thanks so much for stopping by today and be sure to stay tuned for some more Prettie creations! :D

Have a Fabulous Day!!! :D
