Stampin' Addicts' New 2012-2013 catalog blog hop



Welcome to the Stampin' Addicts' New 2012-2013 catalog blog hop!  I hope you'll enjoy our tour of our favorite sets from the new catalog.  If you've arrived from Debra's Heartfelt Inkspiration Blog, you enjoyed her lovely projects with the Fine Feathers set , but if not, the blog is circular, so you won't miss a thing if you just click next. Should you get lost or want to see a list of the hop stops, visit the New 2012-2013 Catalog Blog Hop chat thread on Stampin Addicts.

Today, I'm using the Horse Frontier Set....I like to have a western set available, so I'm glad they added this set. 

For this first card, I used the Louis L'amour quote for a birthday card for my husband. He is a Louis L'amour fan because his grandfather was, which I think is sweet.  The Cajun Craze, Midnight Muse and Soft Suede are an easy color combination, and the woodgrain makes a fence post like background. Some denim ribbon and a bit of linen thread complete it simply.

Next, is this card created to show the set watercolored.  The chocolate chip makes a nice bay brown, and the Primrose Petals sentiment makes it perfect for a cowgirl since this card will be for a friend whose birthday is in August.  The Itty Bitty Banner is curved to make it wavy. I used the chevron embossing folder on the Gumball green cardstock with the Stitched Satin ribbon, and the green brads are Garden Green as is the grass in the picture.

Finally, I'm channeling my inner Campfire Girl (I actually was one and made these several different ways). I made this pencil can to give to the same friend's daughters for their homework desk. My daughter suggested it--How could I refuse?  I wanted to add bling or brads, but I was afraid I would accidentally take it to an even more Campfire Girl level.

Now it is time to travel to Rubber Stamping and Card Making with Yapha for a look at her pretty A Fitting Occasion creations. I hope you enjoy our tour.

Beautiful images and wonderful way to use them. The watercolored image truly brings out the beauty of the main image. Even more special because of the sentiment behind them.

Wow, what beautiful images! I love how you showcased them with your projects, Rhonda!

I love all of your projects! The subtle one was great and then the colored one made me think it was a different horse image...WOW!

Yapha said...

Great projects (even the campfire girl one... Hey! I was a campfire girl!) Love how you showed the versatility of the set. Thanks for another great blog hop!

Rhonda, a great set of projects, I'm going to have to agree with Betty I love the gumball green and chocolate chip combo on the second one. Beautiful.

Hmm. The girl from OK likes a western theme? Love the details on the first Card-- the quote, the denim, the wood grin, the hemp. I'm also loving' gum ball green as you can tell frommy posts!! Awesome!

You did a great job with this set. I love the Denim ribbon with it on the pencil can and all the details on the others too.

I am so glad you featured this set! I had a horse even before I was born (not kidding, my parents had purchased a little paint stallion pony to keep my Dad's percheron/arab mare company) and I was riding that little stallion by myself by the time I was 4 :)
Your little bay is quite a beauty! Who woulda thunk it? Chocolate Chip is really bay!
LOVE the denim ribbon with this set, and the Woodgrain BG is perfect too!

I'm a little late in blog hopping. I love the garden green card and the water coloring on the horse is awesome. Cute can too! Those are still fun to make.
