Our 2nd post from Guest Designer Purnima!

-If you're looking for the blog hop please click here!-

Here is our "last" post from Guest Designer Purnima. I say "last" in quotations because today she's sharing THREE more projects.

Don't forget to visit Purnima in each of her little areas of the world:




I'll let Purnima take over from here:

“Yee Haw!” from Purnima Girouard

I have a few samples for you in my second entry as Guest Designer for Viva Las Vegas Stamps…  I was having too much fun to quit at one!  There are some amazing ranch women here in Gillette, Wyoming, so I was happy to find some great Western stamps in the VLVS catalog! 

Using the Two Cowgirls (Item 18784 from Plate 1395) and the Wildflower background from Plate1401, I was able to play on the idea of “Prairie Flowers” for my card.  I white embossed the flowers on paper from the Fleuriste collection by Cosmo Cricket, and then enhanced the color contrast with Distress Stains before mounting.  To make the card more interesting, I folded the purple cardstock so that the front was narrower than the back.  I added a strip of coordinating paper to the overlap. 



The Two Cowgirls and “YEE HAW!” are stamped in purple on white cardstock and clear embossed, then colored with Distress Markers and cut out as shown.  I used a permanent marker to add black lines to create a hand-drawn effect before mounting the images to the picture panel with foam tape for dimension.  I defined the theme of the card with words and letters from Cosmo Cricket’s Tiny Type.  My final embellishments were a “tin star” and a lariat made of hemp cord, and a bit of doodling in white gel pen.


 
Ready for some rodeo fun?



For the picture panel on this card, I colored the Two Cowgirls stamp with Distress Markers and impressed on Ranger’s Specialty Paper in the ATC size.   The card also features words and numbers from artist Mary Vogel Lozinak’s Plate 1401.  Scrapbook-styled handwriting, doodling and various bits that reminded me of the fun of a rodeo fair complete the card. 



And a last bit of fun with Mary Vogel Lozinak’s versatile stamps…
  

Both of these cards’ picture panels were stamped in the same way as the Two Cowgirls on the last card.  I colored the stamp of this darling woman in a cloche hat using Distress Markers and impressed the panel for the card on the right.  Then I lightly misted the stamp with water and impressed it again.  Voila!  Two for one!  Variety in coloring and papers produced different personalities for the cards, despite following the same layout and similar embellishment design elements.

I hope you enjoyed riding along with me as I mounted up my VLVStamps!  They were a pleasure to use and the nice quality allowed me to get clear images -- even  coloring with markers and double stamping.  I’ll be watching the Internet to see what the rest of you come up with using these wonderful images!  I plan on getting some milage out of mine.  Thanks for taking a look!
