DeNami Design: Western Sneak Peeks

HOWDY, blog friends! Y'all ready for some SUPER FUN sneak peeks of DeNami Design's brand spankin' new western-themed stamps?!?! Let me just tell you...I immediately fell head over heels in love with these images, and I'm sure you will too! They are ALL sooooo stinkin' cute!
All of the images in the new release mix-and-match really well, so there are TONS of creative possibilities!!! My first card features several new images including: H88 Cactus Trio, E167 Howdy, and that darling little cowboy/cowgirl hat from PF61 Cowboy Stamp Set!

I paper pieced the cacti with two different shades of green cardstock to add a little dimension. The barbed wire fence was simply hand-drawn with a black Copic multiliner pen. If you're interested in more detail about that, let me know in the comments section and I'd be happy to share step-by-step directions. To add to the rustic feel of the card I distressed the edges of the main panel.
Next up: You all know I ADORE the chickie stamps, but this my friends is my new FAVORITE: Introducing Cowboy Chickie!!! (*SQUEAL*)
Isn't he HANDSOME?!?! On the card above he's hanging out on Main Street (which is also part of the new release)!!! Reminds me of our little historic town of Golden here in Colorado!
And here he is again:
Wouldn't this make a sweet little Valentine?!?! I was inspired by the "WANTED" posters of the Wild West. The sentiment is a new one that actually reads "Love you forever." I inked up the words "Love" and "forever" in black ink and then used the solid horseshoe image from the new PF61 Cowboy Stamp Set as my "U"! SO EASY and SUPER FUN! The loopedy-loop frame around Cowboy Chickie is just a little hand-drawn doodle I added as an afterthought.
I LOVE the versatility of these new western-themed images! They're perfect for just about any occasion! How about a wedding card?!?!
I stamped the cowboy boots from the new PF60 Southwest Stamp Set twice to create his and hers boots inside this GORGEOUS M79 Elegant Square Frame. And look how perfectly the frame fits inside the Labels One Nestie die!!!! Can I get a YEE HAW?!?! The sentiment was created in Microsoft Word using the "Playbill" font.
So...what do you think?!?! Are you as excited as I am about this new release from DeNami Design?!?! Just wait until you see the full reveal tomorrow! It's TOTALLY FABULOUS!!!!
