I made two cards with this fabulous NEW Lisa Johnson Designs - Howdy Stamp set. This is such a fun set and I wanted to show how versatile it is, so, I made a cowgirl card and cowboy card for you today!

First up, is my very girlie and quite bright card. I used this new BasicGrey Soleil 6x6 pad and I know this card would appeal to a pre-teen or teenage girl and I was right...my daughter, Hannah, totally loves this card. Working with this gorgeous NEW Howdy Stamp set brought back fond memories of my childhood too. I remembered playing with my friend Sirena, she had a large collection of these beautiful model horses, we would play for hours.

I also used the NEW Howdy Die-namics, the NEW Western Star Border Duo and the NEW Framed Flourishes!

Here is a detail shot of the sweet little tag from the NEW Howdy Frames Die-namics. I love that you get several tiny stars in the NEW Howdy Stamp set with different patterns that fit perfectly inside the larger star circle stamp...makes a great two tone effect. I also used the Country Charms Die-namics and the Flower Medley Die-namics. I added a big bow with gorgeous MFT Grapesicle Grosgrain ribbon.

Here is the inside of my card...I used the Well Worn Greetings Die-namics for the sentiment panel and stamped anther fun sentiment from the NEW Howdy Stamp set. I absolutely LOVE the NEW Western Star Border Duo Die-namics...it's a must-have item from this release.

Now for the more masculine card using the NEW Howdy Stamp set and the NEW Western Background Stamp set.  I used the MME Portobello road 6x6 papers and I used the NEW Howdy Frames Die-namics and the NEW Western Star Border Duo Die-namics.

I stamped one of the background stamps from the NEW Western Background stamp set on Sweet Tooth Heavyweight card stock cut with the larger of the two ribbon dies from the First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics. I think it looks like a spotted horses or a cow print.  I also used the Star STAX Die-namics and the small stars are cut out from the Western Star Border Duo Die-namics and sprinkled them around the card.

Here is the inside of the card...I stamped the background stamp from the NEW Western Background Stamp set again.
