Cowboy Christmas

Happy Wednesday, everyone!! I hope you are having a wonderful week!! I hope all of my friends on the east coast are okay after the blizzard. I'm glad it wasn't as bad as earlier predictions...but having lived through a New England blizzard in the Adirondack Mountains, I know it's not fun. One year, we lost power for over a week and my Jeep was completely buried under so much snow, the fire department had to dig it out. Here in Indiana we had a very light dusting of snow but that's it. It's been a relatively light winter for us snow-wise. I'm not complaining :)

I have a couple of projects from Christmas that I didn't get the chance to post earlier and it's almost February...gosh I'm so behind!! Isn't this just the cutest boot??!! It's a file from can find it HERE. I made this for my Dad...a wannabe cowboy ;) The paper is from DCWV and I embossed the toe with a Tim Holtz embossing folder. For the strap on the back, I used a sheet of copper foil. The tag is a Taylored Expressions banner die. Merry Christmas is from Craftin Desert Diva's Happy Celebrations stamp set. I added some of my Dad's favorite candy before I gave it to him :)

I found this cowboy picture on a royalty-free photo site and I knew he would love it, so I purchased it and then imported it into Cricut's Design Space. I then used the auto-trace tool to cut around the gosh, it was so did all the work for me. This was the test I did on heavyweight black cardstock but for my Dad's gift, I cut it in black vinyl so he could put it on the wall in his den :)

I want to make a pink boot for myself now :) I am entering this in the following challenges:

Sail Away With Me

Happy Monday and happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day to all my friends in the USA :) It's my turn to post on the Die-Versions blog and I have a card to share with you using the new Sail Away Stamp/Die combo set.

The papers are from Prima's Seashore stack. The edges were distressed with a Zutter DIA.

I love everything to do with the ocean so I just love these stamps and dies. The sailboat, anchor and wheel were stamped with the Sail Away Stamp Set and then cut out with the matching Sail Away Die Set. The sailboat was paper pieced and the anchor and wheel were colored with Prismacolor pencils. The button on the ribbon is a Die-Versions Button die. The sentiment is from the Sail Away Stamp Set.

The birds from the stamp set were stamped on the inside.

Scrappin4fun Guest Designer Challenge

Happy Friday!! I hope you have fun plans for the weekend!! I'm super-excited to be participating in the Scrapping4fun Challenge Blog's Guest Designer Challenge!! Guest designers from last year are participating in a sketch challenge...I was a guest designer for Challenge #17. I'd love it if you stopped by the Scrapping4fun Blog and voted for my card (my voting number is: 16GDLisaF). Thank you!! :)

This is the sketch we used for our projects.

For my card, I used papers from Prima and distressed the edges. The gorgeous crinkle ribbon is from My Craft Spot, topped with a Die-Versions button die. Happy is a My Creative Time die. It was cut several times and layered together for dimension. Both of the sentiments are also from MCT.

Designs from the paper were cut out with MCT Bunch of Fun Circle dies. The larger scalloped circle is a Spellbinders die. The MCT butterfly was cut twice and popped up with foam tape for dimension. The leaves are My Memory Box Fresh Foliage dies. The sentiment banner is from LaLa Land.

Thanks so much to Rachelle for hosting this fun challenge!! And thank you all for stopping by!! Have a great weekend :)
