April WMS Stamp of Approval Parade – Day 2

Welcome back to day two of Waltzingmouse Stamps April Stamp of Approval Parade (SOAP)! Today it’s all about Back in the Saddle and Way Out West:

I had found this great cowboy last month when these sets were first released, but didn't get the chance to do anything with him. I downloaded this image from the Silhouette online store and cut it out using my digital cutter. I love the detail, and with an image like this, you don't need much else. I did add some subtle texture to the card by stamping the wood grain background using Way Out West. Once again, I love how long these stamps are! Makes creating your background so easy! I sponged some ink around the edges and added this terrific sentiment from Back in the Saddle. Love the fonts Claire used on this. It just makes this set for me!


Isn't that a great quote? I know exactly who could use this card right about now, and I may make a few others to have on hand. After all, many of us need a little encouragement now and again, right?

Make sure you visit the other design team members today to see what they have in store. Have a great Saturday!
