It's always good to have a stampin' buddy...somebody you can run your projects by just to see if they would tweek something here or there. My stampin' buddy is my good friend, Cheryl Duncan. Whenever we're working on projects for a class or something we might post, we'll text ideas back and forth until we come up with something we are both pleased with. When she sent me a text of this card the other day, I immediately LOVED it. It's a GREAT way to use all those little scraps of my favorite Wood Textures DSP (which I can't throw away because I love them so much!). It's also a very attractive "man card" (lol, we all have trouble with those sometimes!). So I asked if she would guest blog for me today!
Here's what she had to say about this gorgeous card:
"I am so excited to be a guest blogger today for Dena. I love her and her stamping style. In fact, I like the way she stamps way better than my style. But, that's okay, I like mine too.
I was working on a masculine card for my Facebook Page and had seen somewhere in the wide world of the internet a card using the Wood Textures DSP to create a "constructed wall". I can't even begin to remember what was on the front of the card, I just remember what an adorable idea it was to cut the paper (1/2" strips on mine) and build that wall.
While I was cutting and adhering I was pondering how to finish this wall. And it came to me! Vintage barn wood and walls are super trendy right now. And, in a restaurant or a trendy eatery they will hang signs on their wall. How perfect! A Happy Birthday sign would be the perfect thing to finish my card.
And, of course the whole them screams cowboy boots!! So, I added those and colored them with the watercolor pencils and the went over it with a blender pen.
It was lots of fun to make and I hope it inspires you!"
