August 2015 Stamp Release Blog Hop

Woo HOO! The newest Pretty Cute Stamps are here! Welcome to the Pretty Cute Stamps August 2015 Release Blog Hop. YAY! My amazing Design Team and I have some super cute projects to show you today that we created using the very newest PCS stamps.

But first, I want to show you all of the new stamps you can purchase now in the Pretty Cute Stamps Store. Oh, and, most importantly...all of the new items (even the bundle) are ON SALE until 10:00 pm CST on Tuesday, August 11, 2015. Woo HOO! they are. You can find all of these new items in the PCS store HERE.

The SVG Outlines for the images on each of these new sets are also now available in the store. So, if you're not one who likes fussy-cutting around images and has access to an electronic cutting machine that can use SVG files, these could be a great resource for you. The stamp images are not included with these need the stamp sets for those. Oh, and these SVG Outlines are also ON SALE until Thursday night, too!

Okay, here are my projects for the hop. I decided to make some fun cowboy themed projects:

I created this card using the little cowboy and lasso from the Howdy Partner stamp set. I colored the images with my Copic markers. The patterned papers I used are from the Carta Bella Giddyup Boy Paper Pack 1. I added some jute twine and a silver star, and my card was all done (and ready for my dad's birthday). 

I also created a little tag using the boot from the Howdy Partner stamp set. I added the barbed wire border and the sentiments from the Best in the West stamp set. The tag is a cutting file from the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Made with Love Tag set.

Now I have a freebie for you from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons. This Cowboy Boot Card will be available for FREE today only, then it will be available for purchase in the PPPR store. You can download this file by clicking on the photo below:
