Taylor says a big ole Texas HOWDY !! This is another adorable stamp from Victoria Case for SCACD Hearts and Hugs Collections #2. Isn't she cute? Being a true Texan, I have so many ideas for her. I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Creative Inspirations - Stitching

Whimsy Stamps - Touch Feely - add texture

Creative Inspirations - Wednesday - Friendship

The week for TIOT #34, the challenge was to make a project without using DP and add a charm. For the background I used blue Co-ordinations cardstock, embossed it using the cuttlebug and sponged it with chocolate ink from CTMH. The burlap is some I had laying around, as well, as the twine and charm. Red co-ordinations was used to back Taylor, stamped stars and heat embossed with rustic and embossed using the cuttlebug. I used Chocolate cardstock from CTMH to back Taylor. I used the CTMH cardstock because it is white core. I sanded all the paper. Taylor is stamped and heat embossed, colored with copis and just a little stickles added to her shirt, hat and boots. Her belt buckle is colored with a silver metallic pen. Her eyes and mouth are glazed to brighten her beautiful smile.
Same techniques were used for the inside. The Texas stamp was embossed using two different color powders.

Be sure to check the other DT samples at Follow Your Heart.

You can get this image and the other from the collection at SCACD.
