Call of the Desert

I need to get my 'Western Fix' out of the way every few weeks....until I can get my boots in the desert dust this summer, so I got my'Cowgirl' on when I saw a sketch at Splitcoaststampers - SSC 321 - that would work for a card I was making. I think next time I will experiment and use some girly colors. In the meantime its always good to have a masculine card in my stash, although this one will probably go to Carol in the office at the Ranch. Last time we talked she said she was out of the cards I had given her and could use a few more.

Wish I could remember who designed the main stamp, I can only remember that I bought it at the Gateway Convention in Collinsville, Illinois a few years ago, and have had the occasion to use it several different ways. The sentiment and barbed wire are from Marks Finest Paper.

Put my brown CS thru an EF and stamped my image twice so I would have two of the desert scene - then I cut four of the six images into squares. I stamped barbed wire, several times across and dirtied the edges of the sentiment to give it an aged look. I used my corner punch on both the card and the layers. Then I used some pop ups to raise the sentiment up over the lower image.


  1. Oh, Sherry, this is so cool. I just love this.

  2. Oh what a great western image Sherry! I wish you knew too... I have been on the hunt for a couple for just those few times I need them! Love the barbed wire too! Hope it won't be long before you can sink your boots into that desert sand! :) Love your card!

  3. Great masculine card - love the image and the barbed wire too - it's perfect. Good luck with the desert sand... it's sounds great compared to all this snow. =)

  4. Love the western card. I am a horse lover too but am lucky enough to own mine.
