Happy Trails

Hi everyone!  It has been over a week since I last posted, and I am so happy to be back creating.  I have had so many different events going on, I did not have a second to be in my crafting room last week.  I have created a card today for the SSSC164.  This is the adorable stamp set I won from TSG called Happy Trails.  YES, I did say won!  I was so excited when it was announced I won one of the daily Blog Hops on TSG for their new August release week.  I love this company and all the DT members.  Their stamps are adorable and I just love using them, so without further adieu.....TA DAH!

Like I said above, this card was created using the Happy Trails stamp set from TSG.  The DP is Story Teller by Crate Paper.  The cloud paper is from Fine & Sunny by KaiserCraft.  I hand cut green cardstock to make it look like grass.  The flower and brad are from Michaels.  The twine for the tag is from MME.  To cut the tag I used a shipping tag and adhered it to the back of my embossed patterned paper.  I machine stitched the papers for an added touch. 

The image is stamped using Versafine Onyx Black ink on to Ultra Smooth Premium Cardstock and colored using my Spectrum Noir markers.  I fussy cut him, and then pop dotted him to the background.  I then stamped the cute little sign on Kraft cardstock using Jenny Bowlin's Brown Sugar die ink and pop dotted that as well.  The sentiment is stamped on to a Die-namics Sentiment Strips piece.

I left the inside very simple this time with plenty of room for a personal message.  I have seen this technique of simply stamping the image again on the inside and leaving it un-colored and I really like it.  I thought I would try it out today with this card.  I have to say I really like how it turned out!  I hope all of you enjoy this card.  Please leave any comments or questions below as I LOVE hearing from my viewers.  Have a wonderful week, and as always stay crafty!
