Kick Up Your Heels

>> Wednesday, August 15, 2018

I just love the boots and hat in the new 4-in-1 Cowboy Gear.  I colored up two boots and a hat for this card. I also used the new Barn Door and the Western Word Square.

To make the bottom layer, I swiped some Vintage Photo Distress Ink on some aluminum foil and misted with water.  i then dipped my paper in it and let it dry.  Then I did some paper piercing for the stitching.  I looked a bit too masculine so I tied on a bow.

I am having so much fun with the new Western Themed stamps.




Side by Side

>> Tuesday, August 14, 2018

Hi Everyone,

I hope you've been enjoying seeing all of the western/cowboy cards here on the blog, because I've enjoyed stamping and making them.  Even when things haven't gone as planned :)

I wanted to stamp the Cowgirl Line Dancer and Cowboy Line Dancer close together, so I stamped her first and then made a mask, covering her up and stamping him slightly on top.  Something didn't go right, so I tried again.  I changed up their position slightly and managed to not like the outcome again.  Sigh.  Never mind.  Instead of starting over with a new idea, I decided to used the top part of the couple only and made the following cards.

I chose an anniversary theme for this couple, stamping and layering up the Love is More Precious Greeting.  I dry embossed the background and added a piece of cardstock stamped using the Woodgrain Background stamp. 

I added a glittered up sunflower that was fussy cut from the
Polka Dot Flower Trio, just as an embellishment.

For this card, I used a circle punch on my couple, and stamped the background using the
 Western Word Square, adding a strip of embossed cardstock and a strip of glitter.  

I inked up the Howdy Pardner from the background stamp and used a speech bubble punch to make a greeting.  After completing these, I was so happy I was able to rescue my couples and make them into worthy cards.  

Thanks for visiting today!


Saddle Up!

>> Monday, August 13, 2018

Happy Monday Everyone. Hope you had a great weekend. Have you been enjoying all the western themed cards this past week or so here on the DRS Designs blog. There are some fun new images. My card today used the new 4 in 1 Cowboy Gear image as well as the new Western Word Square.

I started by stamping the Western Word Square with Versfine Onyx ink onto cranberry CS, cut it into a strip and added it to the side of the white card base. Next I stamped the first line of the Saddle Up birthday greeting with the same black ink. The rest of the greeting is stamped inside the card.

The hat, saddle and boot were stamped with Memento Black ink, colored with Copics, die cut, layered onto the same cranberry CS and added to the card, some with glue and some with foam adhesive for some dimension.

Inside I also stamped the spur image from the 4 in 1 Cowboy Gear with SU cranberry ink along the bottom of the card.

Thanks for stopping by today!



Saddle Up!

Everyone needs a quick and easy birthday card every now and then and if it's masculine - it's like hitting the jackpot!!

My card today was definitely easy and pretty quick - especially if you don't count the coloring :)

I stamped our new 4 in 1 Cowboy Gear as my background, colored it using a combination of watercolor pencils and markers and added a little black sponging around the edges.  To finish up I stamped our Saddle Up Birthday Greeting, die cut it and a larger red circle (adding maybe a bit too much black sponging around the greeting :) and layered it all on a folded red card. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!!


Perfect Pair

 Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! All the kids are back in school around here so I guess summer is officially over. When I first received these new images, I immediately thought of using the 4 in 1 Cowboy Gear to make a western theme wedding card. So I stamped one boot, masked it, then stamped the second boot. I colored them in 2 colors to represent the bride & groom, then added a fussy cut hat w/ a little tulle veil. The spurs were also fussy cut & added to the groom's boot. The greeting on the heart is actually a compilation of about 3 different stamps.  I used the Woodgrain Bg image on the brown strip to the left.
Here's a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

paper: X-Press It white, Staples 110# white, brown
ink:  Memento tuxedo black, rich cocoa
accessories:  Misti, Copic markers, ODBD double stitched rectangles & squares dies, Serendipity heart & sunflower dies, tulle ribbon


Cowboy Christmas

>> Thursday, August 9, 2018

Good morning!

This is my Cowboy Christmas card!
These stamps can be so versatile, this is perfect for those who live in the desert kind of like a palm tree is good for the tropic regions.

I stamped then cut with a die using the "out of the box" method for cutting.
The dies are from MFTs.

This one is all girl!

I used little rhinestones to embellish!
The boot was masked then stamped again to make a pair. and the spurs were stamped separately then fussy cut and glued into place as was the hat.
The circle dies are from ODBD.
Thanks for visiting today!


Dancing Puzzle Card

>> Wednesday, August 8, 2018

Sometimes you just have to punt when making cards.  This card was punted very far - lol.  I had a piece I had stenciled and frantage and I thought it would work great for the card idea I had.  Once I stamped and tied to color the images, I realized the frantage interfered too much with the image. So I chopped up the image into rectangles and used the good ones in a fun pattern.  Then I added in some western details to tie it together. 

The original panel had the Birthday Sheet Music image stamped first. Then I stamped the new Western Dancing Couple.  The bg and the hat were made with the new 4-in-1 Cowboy Gear.  I could not find my nail head stickers so I used some glitter stickers from CTMH. 

I think this came out super fun.
