MFT October Teaser Time Day 1 74

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, October 9, 2012 @ 9:00 PM | , , , ,

Hi there! Welcome to Day 1 of the MFT August Teaser Time! Today we are showcasing Lisa Johnson Designs Howdy and Lisa Johnson Designs Western Backgrounds. I fell in love with these stamp sets immediately because if you have been visiting my blog for awhile, you probably already know that we have a horse lovin' kinda gal in our home and her name is Meredith ;) 

The Howdy stamp set is jam packed with a lot of fun versatile stamps that may be used when creating various projects. I opted to create a layout featuring many of the stamps along with the woodgrain board image from Western Backgrounds that you see peeking out from behind Meredith.
For the title, I combined several images from Howdy and stamped them on one of the fun dies from Die-namics Howdy Frames then hung it on a pretty motif that was made using one of the two Die-namics Framing Flourishes. I added a sweet little flower embellishment that was made using Die-namics Flower Trio & Leaf Trio:
Shown below are a trio many sentiments from the Howdy stamp set. Two of which are stamped on die cuts made using Die-namics Howdy Frames. "WANTED" was stamped on a layered Die-namics Fishtail Flags Layers STAX die and layered on top of die cut made using Die-namics Fishtail Flags STAX. The fun layered star border strip was made using Die-namics Western Star Border DUO:
I stamped the horse head image from the Howdy stamp set, cut using a Die-namics Circle STAX Set 1 die then layered it on top of a pretty die cut made using Die-namics First Place Award Ribbon Die. I surrounded the image with a few die cut flowers made using the new Die-namics Sunflower and a few blossoms made using Die-namics Flower Trio & Leaf Trio. Peeking out are flourishes made using both Die-namics Leafy Flourish and Die-namics Medium Leafy Flourish.
In case scrapping is not your thing and you fancy card making, I made one to share as well. 
My card features a fun sentiment from the Howdy stamp set. I stamped the sentiment on a circular die cut piece of Blending Card by X-Press It that was cut using a Die-namics Circle Stax Set 1 die. I layered the Birthday sentiment on a banner die cut that was made using a Die-namics Jumbo Banner Day STAX die and topped it off with a few Kraft buttons.
I added a die cut border that was made using Die-namics Western Star Border DUO:
Shown below are the Die-namics included in the October release that I used on my project today:
