Western Cards Y’all Part 2

IMG_4643

Operation Write Home has a call out for Western themed cards, so I did four of them to send.  I made a similar one to this one last October, for my Step Daughter’s wedding, and she loved it, so I did it again.  I used twine to make the heart lariat, and glued it on the wood grained paper from My  Mind’s Eye .  The love is a Paper Smooches die.   The back ground paper is from the same paper pack.  There you have it  Y’all!!!  Please consider Operation Write Home, it is a wonderful organization that provides handmade cards to our deployed Soldiers.  Please visit their website, join us in making cards or make a donation to continue this work  for our Heroes!  “Be Good!”  Debbie

Please read Western Cards Y’all for the rest of my cards I made for OWH!

Western Cards Y’all

Operation Write Home has a call out for Western themed cards, so I did four of them to send.  I made a similar one to this one last October, for my Step Daughter’s wedding, and she loved it, so I did it again.  I used twine to make the heart lariat, and glued it on the wood grained paper from My Mind’s Eye .  The love is a Paper Smooches die.   The back ground paper is from the same paper pack.

 

IMG_4642  The paper from this card is from Scrappin’Sports.  The sentiment is from My Favorite Things, and the horseshoe is a Cuttlebug die.  I used some metal grommets and some twine from May Arts to finish the card.

This card is an old  Stampabilities stamp that I heat embossed.  The paper is from the Natural Stack from  DCWV and the twine from May Arts.

This is kind of a fun crazy idea I had.  The paper is from the same Masculine Stack I used on the previous card.   The hat was made with a Cuttlebug die, and the mustache from the Memory Box mustache set.  I used an alphabet to print the word howdy, and the glasses are a stamp that I had, not sure who made it.

Sweet Valentine

IMG_4529

My hubby loves sweets, especially cinnamon rolls with lots of icing, pie, and especially chocolate!!!!!  That’s why I came up with this idea for his Valentine.  The honey bun and sweetie pie stamps are from Newton’s Nook.  The kiss is from one of the first stamp sets I bought called Bugs and Kisses, I don’t know who made it and couldn’t find it on the web anymore.  The honey bun is colored with E33 and I used frosted lace Stickles for the icing.  I colored the pie with C1, E33, and R29.  I stamped the kiss onto silver paper and fussy cut it.  For the I love your, I used an I love you stamp and then added an R by hand.  The heart is from May Arts.  Hope you had a great Valentine’s day.  “Be Good!”  Debbie

Bicycle Built For Two

IMG_4528

Here with another Valentine!  I love the journaling paper from Crate Paper called Fourteen.  I made several cards using some of the different images.  I love the bicycle built for two and found this background paper from Echo Park for the background.  The heart doily is from the Spellbinder die Lace Hearts, and the off white heart doily is from Taylored Expressions (layering doily medium).  I used a heart from  May Arts, and vintage button I had and a vintage lace bow to add to the card.  It’s for my Step-daughter, my husband is so sweet he sends all his daughters Valentines! “Be Good!”  Debbie

Flappy Birthday

IMG_4522

I just learned about Flappy Birds lately, and then found out it is no longer available new.  One of my Great-Granddaughters introduced me to the birds game , she is good at it, I am not.  Anyhow, her birthday is Saturday, so I thought a Flappy Birds card would be good for her!  I used the Mama Elephant die Landscape Trio to cut the clouds, a My Favorite Things die to cut the tree line (I don’t think that they sell it anymore) and cut a strip of kraft paper for the brown bottom.  I look a piece of green washi tape and used it for the line between the kraft and tree line.  I drew in the buildings by hand.  I used straws and cut them in half for the pipes.  The flappy bird I made from the smallest Sizzix circle die, and cut a leaf out of white for the wing, and another leaf in orange cut in half for his beak.  I gave him a googly eye too!   The sentiment inside is Flappy Birthday!  I think she will love it!  “Be Good!”  Debbie

I Heart You Animals

IMG_4515

Hi there!  Here is another Valentine for the Great-Grandkids, this time for two sweet boys.  The die is from Die-Versions called I Heart You Animals.  These are just the cutest dies! You can pick from the puppy, lion, pig, cat, panda, monkey, cow, and an owl!  I used kraft paper and brown paper for the puppy.  The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions Sack it Sentiments.  The background paper is from all places, the Target dollar bin, but I think it works out  perfectly.  It’s off to Kansas in the mail today!  “Be Good!”  Debbie

Sweetheart Tails

IMG_4457_edited-1

I have been blessed with the best Great-Grandkids!  Yes, I am a Great-Grandmother, step that is, the hubby is a  lot older than I am.  Anyhow they are the greatest, and I am working on Valentines for them.  There are 3 darling girls in one family, one loves to wear bows in her hair, one loves sports, especially basketball, and one is a college freshman.  I love this stamp set from Newton’s Nook, they are a fave of mine right now.  This one is called Sweetheart Tails.  Found this cute background paper in my stash and decided to use Sweetheart Tails to make 3 foxes, one representing each girl.  The purple one with the hair bow is colored with  V15 and 17.  The orange one with the basketball was done in  YR04 and 07.  And my pink fox was done with RV21 and 23.  I made a bow with floss for my bow lover, and had a little basketball for my sports lover and made a necklace out of Mill Hill beads for the grown-up girl.  The sentiment is from Newton’s Nook and I cut it out using my Spellbinders Heart dies.  Added a few punch colored sequins from Ellen Hutson and that’s it.  I think they will get a kick out of their Valentine!  “Be Good!”  Debbie
