My DeNami Sneak Peeks ~ Western!



I've got spurs that jingle jangle jingle as I go riding merrily along! I don't remember where I heard that little tune but it was running through my mind as I worked on my DeNami Design Spring/Summer release sneak peeks! I was assigned the new Western release stamps along with my crafty talented teammates Lisa and Wendy. 

On my first card I've used the new Cowboy Chickie along with the fun Sherrif's Badge and Howdy senitment from a cute Petite Four set. This little dude is sort of the John Wayne of chickies!! I added gems to the stars to make them spurs rather than badges.


On this card I've surrounded my little cowboy with the Indian Chickie from a previous Thanksgiving set along with a cute little Cactus from a new Petit Four set. I did a bit of selective inking and turned the Howdy sentiment into How! I'm sure "The Duke" will swagger his way out of this predicament!!!



Yep...I was right he's turned the table on the tribe and is out to lasso himself a brave or two! This fun little scene contains the new Cactus Trio stamp.


Something a bit more simple using the cute little Rattlesnake and Cowboy Hat from yet another Petit Four set. I used a rick rack border to mimic the movement of a snake!


Okay are you still with me!!??!! One final card combing more new release images with a former Thanksgiving sentiment. I've combined two Horseshoes from the new Petite Fours sets with my Cowboy Chickie and sentiment, then embossed them all using silver embossing powder. I opted not to color the chickie here to stick with a monochromatic theme. Love the navy and silver together!


I hope you've enjoyed your trip to the old west with me today! Be sure to pay a visit to Lisa and Wendy, leave comments on their spectacular works and then head over to DeNami to do the same. There are gift certificates up for grabs!!!

And for now I leave you with a message from the Duke himself... 
Take'er easy there, Pilgrim!
