Can I get a Yee Haw?



Hey there, Hi there!! It seems that lately life keeps getting in the way of my daily goal of blogging a card I make! I must say there has been a lot going on in our sleepy little town on the eastern plains of Colorado... As many of you know I run a Facebook group with Tina Riddle who is also a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. It is called One Stamp At A Time Cards & More. Recently a member posted a great tutorial to make this Tri Shutter Fold Card (tutorial in link)... I remembered trying to do one as a newbie a couple of years ago and got super frustrated... I must say that with the new Stampin' Trimmer this card was VERY easy to make... So this was the third one I have made in the last two days, but it is by far the best of all... Because as I made my first and second one the wheels of creativity went into high gear...



Well lets get our boots dirty with the juicy details...
The Tri Shutter Fold base was cut and scored in Crumb Cake CS using the Stampin' Trimmer!! I am telling you now, this trimmer made ALL the difference! I then used the tutorial to kind of lay out my layers of contrasting card stock in Soft Sky and Early Espresso, and finished each panel off with Something Borrowed DSP. Now the fun begins! I obviously have an obsession with this great photopolymer set Yee-Haw, well imagine my surprise when I found out that someone had made dies to go with the set! The hat, barb wire, and horseshoes were made by stamping them in Early Espresso on Crumb Cake and Soft Sky card stock and using the dies I purchased from Dies By Dave. While the Boot is from the set Bootiful Occasions stamped in Early Espresso on Crumb Cake, Dave also has a set of dies for that stamp set as well... The Cowgirl I fussy cut out and added to the "Hooray" Panel with Linen thread, the next panel used a die from the above set cutting out the lariat that was stamped in Early Espresso and used to wrap around the Whisper White Panel with Yee Haw stamped in Early Espresso... I trimmed the ends off the barb wire and used them on the last stamped panel where I used the "Kick Up Your heels!" from Bootiful Occasions... 

Hope you enjoy my post today! I am off to feed the horses!!
Have a blessed day!
