We are pleased to introduce the My Guy Collection. This is a set for your best buckaroo.

With a western flare of attitude, this set also contains cowboy hats and boots, and a variety of landscape stamps to create that perfect scenic creation you have been dreaming of. There are 7 new PreCut Stamp Sets and one beautiful new exclusive Spellbinders die designed for Heartfelt Creations.

Leave a comment on the HC blog by March 20 to be eligible to win the entire release valued at $141.92. The winner will be announced on March 21 on the HC Blog.
For today's creation I couldn't help but think of the song "Wildfire" when I saw this new Bronco Stamp.  The new release is just exciting.  It can be used for both men and women whether you color it in blue, pink, or just leave it neutral.  I had so much fun making my new creations with this.  It took me in a whole other direction then I am used to going in and it was such fun.  I was even able to figure out how to make plain ole brown cardstock look like leather!!!

See how really cool that looks.  I think if you try the matt finish liquid dimensional that it would look really good too.  Below is a picture of the felt flowers that are made with the Heartfelt Creations Posy die. 

Supplies Used:
HCPC 3456 - Western Brono PreCut Set
HCD 701 - Posey Patch Die
HCD 714 Decorative Layered Basket Die
Other: Martha Stewart Ribbon Loop Punch Around the Page, Memory Maker Brads, Hemp 20lb Cord, Kaisercraft Sweet Nothings Collection, Brown, Green, & White Cardstock, Rangers Brushed Corduroy Distress ink, Tan Felt, Stazon Timber Brown Ink, Fine Point Sharpie, Hair Spray, Glossy Accents, Cuttlebug Embossing folder, and stardust stickles
For the Faux Leather Corners, cut brown cardstock 2" square and cut in half diagonally -notch out a V shape. Run these pieces through an embossing folder then apply Glossy accents and allow to dry. Punch a hole in the center to attach brads then adhere to card with foam pads.
To make felt flowers cut felt with Posey Patch Die using the 3 smallest dies-cut 3 extra small, 6 small, 3 medium. Punch hole in center and assemble with brad. Hair spray the felt flowers and scrunch them a bit to make the petals stand up with dimension, allow to dry. Cut 4 leaves from the Decorative Layered Basket Die and arrange flowers and leaves in right corner of card. Stickle edges as desired.

Be sure to check the Heartfelt Creations Blog for the beautiful creations that my Design Team Sisters have created.  We will see you back here again tomorrow for my other creation for this weeks reveal.  Have a great day!

Beautiful card!! Those felt flowers are perfect for a country/western theme! It was fun to read about your title being from a song... I thought it was the horse's name... HC used to have a horse stamp named wildfire. Thanks for the faux leather instructions too. :o)

You are such a wonderful card maker! I am always in awe of all the details and special touches and techniques you manage to use on your cards. I appreciate how sweet you are with your comments on my work. Your work rocks and you should be submitting if you haven't already!
And I just them in they haven't been accepted. LOL
I did get one that is going to be pubbed in Scrapbooking and Beyond but it's not an HFC one!
