4 of a Kind - September with Cathy

It's the 16th of the month and time for the September version of Four of a Kind.  This month I was the hostess and "Yee Haw", the theme is western!  I do live in a town nicknamed Horsetown, USA after all.  Here is a picture of the kit I sent Joyce, Kim and Renee.

Do you recognize the stamps?

If you guessed Back in the Saddle by Waltzingmouse Stamps, you're right.  This is one of my very favorite stamp sets, such a great mix of individual stamps that can be put together in endless combinations for all kinds of occasions.  Birthday, get well, thank you, and every one is really cute and fun to use.    The patterned papers are by My Minds Eye, On the Bright Side "Stitched" p0aper, Ride On, and Lucky Girl.  There is also some Reminise Cowboy Stripe in there.  I also added some burlap, twine, gingham ribbon, some diecut western charms by My Favorite Things Stamps called Western Charms.  I also threw in a few brass brads, buttons and embossed cardstock.  Here are the cards I made with the kit.
I used the Tim Holtz medallion along with the "girlie" plaid paper and navy gingham ribbon.  If you look close you can see the woodgrain impression and some really cute little navy stars on this cute cowgirl's boots.

My second card is my favorite.
I guess I used that stitched jean paper on all three cards, but I sure loved it.  The focal point is actually three different stamps, two from Back in the Saddle and the polka dots are from WM Faux Fun Circles.  I added a little pinked circle behind the sentiment and a few of the charms and one little brass brad.

Here is my last card:
More stitched jean paper and another combination focal point.  This time the label is from WM Vintage Labels #18 and the cowboy boots, horseshoes and sentiment are from Back in the Saddle.  I also added my version of a cowboy rope as an embellishment.

I had lots of fun going Cowboy this month, and I hope you will check out the cards that the other three very talented ladies in my group have created.

Ride 'em cowboy. What a fun set of cards you made. I'm getting all sorts of ideas about what to do with my leftovers. This was such a great and fun kit, and I love what you did with it. I love all your cards, and I'd have to say that you favorite is mine, too. I love that medallion, and how you used the twine and the stitched paper. Those dangling charms are perfect there. What a great idea, on that medallion card, to use the boots, two banner sentiments, and the lace. The bling on the boots is killing me!

What a great kit!! Horsetown USA?? Perfect kit! So my favorite is definitely the "its your big day" I love the blue jean paper you used! I love the medallion on the first and the cute embellishments on the rustic looking twine on the second :)

Yee Haw! This is such a fabulous kit and I have been wanting to get this set from WM for some time now and after being able to play with it, I know I have to have it! I love all of the elements you included in the kit, so many wonderful goodies to play with and so many wonderful goodies to use to case too! I feel in love with the rustic gingham ribbon you found, I have never seen that before, just so perfect for your amazing kit. Your last card is my favorite but they all are so stunning and fun and I am happy that I have the horse and giddy up left over...just so fun! Thank you again for a fun kit!

Cathy what a fantastic kit you put together, I love it and all the goodies! Your cards are all fantastic I love the first card which is very feminine but the blue jean on the other two cards looks amazing. You did good.

Fantastic kit and awesome cards, Cathy! There are so many great papers--love the stitched denim and your pink plaid--and such cool embellishments! The die cut charms and lasso are just adorable. I can't pick a favorite as all your cards are fabulous!

Love the kit you sent out Cathy. I also loved the medallion on all the cards everyone made… but I couldn't think of the name. The stitched jean paper is so perfect on all your cards. I love the charms you added to this kit. The dots around the cowboy is a nice combo , one I would not have thought of. The printed paper was neat too!
