Purses and Cowboy Christmas Cards

6 Comments

Had an order for a lady at work to make Christmas cards for her daughter who likes purses, son-in-law who is a Oklahoma State University FAN and a grandson who likes rodeo, horses and cowboys. This is what I came up with. She seemed pleased as she looked at each one.

Baseball baby cards

There seems to be a lot of people having babies so I have several request for baby cards.

A lady asked for a “Congratulations on becoming a Grandma” card that was to have a baseball/cardinal theme. But has now turned into more of a birthday card for grandma. I have sent her the 3 cards but not sure email is cooperating so I’m going to post them here so she can see them and pick which one she likes best. Then we will work out the wording.

Time to showcase NEW JULY Digital Images from Clearly Digi Stamps

I’m on vacation but have been non stop crafting or running errands…..doing all the things that pile up while you work!! Not complaining as I have a lot of request for cards right now so I’m glad I’m on vacation and have time to make then and ENJOY the process.

Enough about that check out the JULY NEW RELEASES at Clearly Digi Stamps!! I’m only previewing two stamps that my husband designed but had several ideals pop up when I saw the other images…just ran out of time!!

The first one is from the Dino’s Digital Image at Clearly Digi Stamps:

CDSPDDinosKD

Dinosaurs

I remembered I had this OLD Basic Grey paper that was dinosaur theme so I took it out to see if it would match. This paper was just perfect for it….but as I started working on it I felt it looked like a grown-up card not a kid card. But I went with it anyway and really like the card BUT then Lori reminds me I could of used “Older then Dirt” and made it a birthday card for an adult!! Duh…why didn’t I think of that!! I used Seize the Birthday Sketch #20 as my inspiration.

CHALLENGES:

1) 613 Avenue Create Challenge #28– Birthday

2) Seize the Birthday – Anything Birthday Challenge

3) Card Makin’ Mamas Challenge #72 – Monochromatic

4) Crafty Creations Challenge #230 – Pun Fun

The second card has to do with School…I know seems to early to think about school but actually its not that far away here in the mid west. School starts around Aug 12 so I asked my husband to do a School Theme set for all those BACK TO SCHOOL projects. This is what he came up with – Time for School Digital Image

TimeForSchoolProofSheet

The other DT members made wonderful cards with the Book Worm and Boy with Backpack so I decided to use the Apple with Worm. I’m actually going to send this to my friend who is a teacher and has been having some “trying” school years lately. The school she is in is in a rough area and the stories she tells is amazing. The school is getting a new principal this year and that can make or break a school year for a teacher. She is an amazing teacher with over 25 years experience so I thought I would send her some encourage as the school year starts next month. I used the Deconstruction Sketch #107 as my inspiration for the design.

Good Morning.

Today is a SUPER COOL day because my husband, Patrick, is releasing his first digital stamps! So that means I have a lot to post today since I will be making samples with his digital stamps! Plus I STILL had to play with the other digital stamps because they just are too darn cute not too! So I will try to keep the chatting to a minimal so this post isn’t a mile long!!

And the other AWESOME news is the new Clearly Digi Stamp store is finally up and running!! So come check it out I think you will like it!! **The old store will take you to the new store but if you want the address it is www.cdstamps.com

If you played in the all day challenge at Clearly iStamp or you stopped by to see what all the excitement was about then you would have seen this card already. But had to post it again because I like it a lot and it’s a digital stamp from my husband, Patrick. This is one dragon that you will get in the set called Dragons. I’m so lucky to have a talented husband that draws and a wonderful friend, Stephanine, that is amazing at sentiments for cards! They make my job a lot easier! I just love love love how this card turned out. It was all based off the wonderful sentiment. The sentiment isn’t included in the digital stamp but feel free to use it…..I just printed it out in word.

Soar on Birthday3_dramigos

Since we are on the topic of Dragons check out this one, Knight Marshmallow Roast, as by Patrick. This is another sentiment that Stephanine (my nick name for her!) came up with!! I love that girl!

This image is perfect for Father’s Day, Birthdays or just a Hello or Encouraging card for someone in the military. Patrick hopes to have a series of these as we already have a request for a tank and Navy guy. If you have any request let me know. This is Soldier Tom, named after my step-dad who was in the army.

Happy Fathers Day-soldier

Now here is some inspiration from digital stamps for two other AWESOME designers we have on the team. I am truly blessed to be able to play with all these images.

This is Asian Plants from Laurie Wilson. I’m so happy with how this card turned out! Thanks Laurie for giving us such great images to work with.

Challenge:

1) Sentimental Sundays#154 – For a Special Woman

Austin made this cute image and asked for help with sentiments….so of course I go to Stephanie and this is what she comes up with! Of course we are laughing but I send it to Austin anyway and apparently laughter is contagious because Austin got a kick out of it too! So she decided to include it in her stamp set, Elephants and Umbrellas.
