Texana Designs Blog Hop

 Today is the DAY!!!!  We are so excited to introduce you to Texana Designs first ever Blog Hop.
One Card Sketch, Seven Artists, and a chance for someone to win all 7 designs presented today.

Below is the sketch we all started with.  No instructions were given other than to interpret it by creating a card using it as your inspiration.  Each designer created a beautifully unique card showing their talents and style.

First we introduce our Leader, JimmyeSue Mitchell's card.  JimmyeSue used one of our new stamps that will be released next week.  She colored her beautiful Tulip with Copics Markers

JimmyeSue's Supply List

Large Oval by Xcut
Sizzix Dots embossing folder
Copics YR12 and 15 and YG93 and 97
Blue and Green cardstock

Next we present Joyce Meyer's Card.  She is not only our Stamp Artist but affectionately know as the Cuttlebug Queen.  She created her background using her Cuttlebug.  Notice that the Oval is not embossed.  Perhaps someday she will create a tutorial for us all showing how she did it.  (No Pressure, Joyce.  LOL)

Texana Designs Team Picture

We were able to all meet in one place despite freezing weather and icy roads.  DTM Libby Hickson, who lives in Georgia was in Texas for just a short period of time and we were all thrilled to be able to spend time with her in person.  Usually she joins us via Google Hangouts and my webcam and TV connection.

When "Icepocolypse 2014" hit Central TX and everything began to shut down we were disappointed that we might not be able to make it happen.  But we fooled Mother Nature.  We were determined!  And we were all in one place at one time.

We did some great brainstorming and have some surprises in store or out loyal followers/customers for 2014.  Stay tuned in the next month to see what we come up with.  :)

In the meantime visit us on FACEBOOK to keep up to date with our news and samples.
Follow us on PINTEREST for lots of INSPIRATION!!!
Shop with us on ETSY to purchase some great Texas inspired rubber stamps.
