If you've stopped here from the awesome eye candy that is Risa West's blog, then you're riding the right trail, but if you haven't and would like to saddle up with us, then head on over to the saloon...oops! I mean Claudia & Company blog and start your rodeo there! :)
Today, Claudia & Company is releasing two rubber stamps and a couple of digital stamps and the best part about them is that they're SO versatile!! You can make regular cards with them (like I did) or you can add accessories and turn the cuties into adorable Trick or Treaters! So without further ado...
Isn't it every boy's dream to dress up like a cowboy some time in their lives?! I know my brother did and we grew up in New Zealand....it's about as far away from the Wild Wild West as you could possibly get! LOL Lori Boyd really has outdone herself with this little guy! Don't you just LOVE that hat and his ride?!!
I kept this card pretty simple so Cowboy McCoy would shine. I colored him with my SU reinkers and aquapainter brush and believe it or not, I have had those Cosmo Cricket 'Wanted' papers in my collection ever since they were first released the first time around! (Luckily, Claudia has a 6x6 sample pack of them in her store, so you can create your own cowboy card!)
The other rubber stamp being released today is by Claudia & Company's newest designer, Jane Beljo!!
Introducing Mr. Smiles!!
He's perfect for Halloween, right?!! I love Halloween monsters! :) I also love Halloween paper and MME's Boo To You collection is aweeeeesome! (I got mine from the DieCutRUs store, but apparently they flew out the door too!) A Halloween card wouldn't be complete without some ricrac and rustic twine. Oh, and do you see that arrow image on the green paper?? That was done with a stamp that comes with Mr. Smiles AND the sentiment! Very cool! Now, I do have to point out that Mr. Smiles doesn't have those particular eyes. I stuck die cut eyes from an old DCVW Halloween die cut pack so they could pop off the page like that.
The third image being sold today is Princess Chloe, who you can see in THIS POST! Perfect for the little princesses in our lives - mine included! :)
!!Cause Alert!!October also means it's Breast Cancer Awareness month and Claudia is generously donating $1 from every Claudia & Company single rubber stamp sold, and $2 from every Claudia & Company rubber set to the Susan G. Komen For The Cure Foundation!
