Easel Card and Cocktail Party reminder!

Hi everyone!

I have another MFTeaser of the newest set from My Favorite Things called "Ride em Cowgirl!" that will be available tonight (Wednesday) after the release party on Splitcoaststampers.

The party is from 8-10 p.m. CENTRAL time....join us for MFTeasers and your chance to become the next Guest Designer.

This card is an easel design I developed after making a card that was too large to cut from a standard sheet of cardstock. This card is normal size--I just wanted to look of the easel design. I used two tab punches to connect the front and back panels--and used the punched stars on top. A fun way to make a card.

The design of this is inspired by a quilt. I used my Scor-Pal to score each quilted square! It was so simple and adds a lot to the finished design.

The image is colored with Prismacolor pencils and I used a piece of hemp for her rope. I added the cute cactus stamped images on either side of her to create a little scene.

Here is a close up of the quilted pattern and of the main image:


Materials used: Stamps-Ride em Cowgirl, Behind the Scenes (My Favorite Things); ink-brilliance black; brilliant blue (SU!); cardstock-white, red, blue, pumpkin, olive; Prismacolor pencils; odorless mineral spirits; brads (SU!); Scor-Pal; tab punch and star punches (SU!); dimensionals (SU!); hemp (SU!).
Hope to see you at the release party!
Thanks for stopping by!

Oh my--I just ordered the star punches. Now I have another idea for using them. Your bag and card are so cute! I'm waiting on my Scor-Pal so I'll be putting it to use, too. Love the quilted look.

Very nice work on this card, and I love all the score lines. I guess now I'm simply going to have to invest in a Scor-Pal : )

It was too crazy in the forum for me to see this last night, but it's GORGEOUS, girlfriend! Seriously love it, and if you're feeling a need to RAK me, why... : ) And you're making me think I need a Scor-Pal even though I have a gigantic Scor-it.
