Texas Tuesday Misbehavin’

Well-behaved women seldom make history.
                 
~ Laura Thatcher Ulrich

Well butter my buns and call me a biscuit! It's another Texas Tuesday and this time I'm on it like cheese on grits. This funky little card celebrates those cowgirls who misbehave and make history.

I had so much fun with this caricature of a card: adding a little ranch dust, some 'snuf in the pocket, and a chain, you know, in case the 'snuf falls out in the saddle.

Recipe

judikinsjeansI found this wonderful Jeans Pants stamp from Judikins at one of my favorite stores, Stamp Salado. Sandy has the best collection ever of Texas-themed stamps, including Deadbeat Designs, Texana Designs, JAM'n Stamps, Granny Heifer Designs – my favs!

If you want to try this, you can . . . 

  • Stamp Jeans Pants with Faded Jeans Distress Ink on Stampin' Up! Sahara Sand – that will give you the nice well-worn and warm color. Inking the stamp with a brayer helps give you good overall ink coverage on such a large stamp.
  • Stamp the image again, and cut out the pockets and belt loops.
  • You can then sponge the edges and seams with Walnut Stain and Tea Die Distress Inks. When I'm trying to get a distressed look, I find it helps to use more than one color of ink.
  • Cut out your belt and glue it to the waist.
  • Attach the belt loops over the belt.
  • To make the 'snuf, you can follow this tutorial I did a while back. I just put a small round chipboard piece under my pocket and traced it with my stylus (dry embossed it), hugging the chipboard piece very closely.
  • Add a couple of eyelets or brads to the pockets.
  • You can also add something to dangle outside the pocket, like a bandana, or chain, like I did. Or, if you want to turn this into a gift, add a gift card or dollar bills.
  • Attach the pockets over your chain, gift card, or dollar bills.

So, Darlin's, here's the rest of the recipe:

  • Fibers: Stampin' Up! Twill Tape, lace from the fabric aisles of Hobby Lobby
  • Ink – Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Faded Jeans, Walnut Stain, and Tea Die
  • Paper –  Cosmo Cricket Wanted, Stampin' Up! Chocolate Chip and Sahara Sand cardstock
  • Stamp: Judikins Jeans Pants
  • Tools: Stylus and Brayer
  • Embellishments: Tim Holtz idea-olgy Swivel Clasp, Stampin' Up! eyelits
  • Misc.: chipboard circle
