Christy Gets Crafty with My Favorite Things - July


 Howdy, pardners! Today I'm super excited to bring you the July edition of Christy Gets Crafty with My Favorite Things! The minute I saw the new Birdie Brown Saddle Up & Celebrate stamp set, I knew I had to use it! When my boys were little, they were OBSESSED with the TV show The Dukes of Hazard, and used to run around with cowboy hats and boots shouting lines from their favorite characters. These cute images took me right back to that place.

I colored my images with Copics and trimmed them out with the matching dies. Then I wanted to create a desert landscape for my cowboy to roam around in, so I used the CloudDrifts & Hills, and Grassy Edges stencils along with some Distress inks for a sunset scene.


Then to break that up a little bit and add another fun element, I cut the Happy Birthday Block out of some Grout Gray Cardstock, popped all the letters out and popped it up over top with foam tape.

I trimmed out my sentiment with one of the Blueprints 29 Die-namics and adhered that across some of the letters in a way that enables you to still read the cutout saying.


I also did some fun stamping on the inside, which you can check out in the video. You can find it on MFT's YouTube channel, or click below! Please be sure to hit that thumb's up icon if you enjoy the video, and leave me a comment! I love to read your encouraging words.


Thanks so much for stopping by!
