Two amazing new sets by Lisa Johnson are debuting today: Howdy; Western Backgrounds.  Let's dig in. 

I've used a little bit of both sets on both of my cards for today. I love how they work so well together.

 I created a custom wood grain pattern on my background here (Whip Cream cs with Crumb Cake ink)  with the new WESTERN BACKGROUNDS stamp set. You get 3 amazing patterns in this stamp set. Nice, long strips of the designs, making for quick and easy coverage. 

Check out that gorgeous new deep, dark blue's the new color that's being released this month. It's called Nightsthift Blue and you'll be able to coordinate all your Replenishements in this color. Here's what you can pop into your cart of release night:

Nightshift Blue Card Stock
Nightshift Blue Buttons
Nightshift Blue Ribbon 
Nightshift Blue Felt

Now here's a closer look at some of the details on my card. I used a Deconstructed Sketch from the other week. Love those! and added lots of distressing to all of my edges. 

I just love this sign Die-namics from the HOWDY FRAMES DIE-NAMICS. I stamped my sentiment in SU!'s new Midnight Muse ink (it's a nice match to this new MFT color) on to kraft cs.  I added few pretty flourishes from the HOWDY STAMP SET and tied it on with some Hemp Twine. 

Here's a look at the newest border-WESTERN STARS BORDER DUO Die-namics. I love it when you get a two for one! These borders can be used separately, or together like I did here. I also love that you get teeny little stars that pop out when you cut the star border. No need to let those go to waste.  I tucked them into the corners of my green flower panel. 

You also can get a better look at the wood grain background in this photo, too. 

I have to admit it...I LOOOVE this next card. It turned out better than I envisioned when I put it together. It's a fun cowgirly, clean and simple card. I layered on lots of stamps and tucked in a few  Die-namics as well, on Kraft and Whip Cream cs. 

 How cute is that cow print background??? It is one of the three stamps included with the new WESTERN BACKGROUNDS. I added some of the sentiments to bits and pieces of the coordinating HOWDY FRAMES DIE-NAMICS.  

I added an Nightshift Blue button and hemp twine to the custom tab I created. 

And here you can see I added a bit of glitter to the stars (again, cut out from the WESTERN STARS BORDER DUO). Since it is a girly card, I couldn't help but glam it up a bit! 

These stamps and coordinating Die-namcis give you endless possibilities for the Western lover in all of us!
