New digis revealed at SSS

Well have we got a treat in store for you..........
we have some fabulous new Digis released at Scrapbook Stamp Society.
Here are my versions, for 2 of the showcased digis:
 Introducing Lil Cowgirl!
To me a Cowgirl is quintessentially American, so That was the theme for this card, but it obviously way too early to be thinking of the Independence or Thanksgiving Celebrations.
So a Holiday card!! I am sure there will be some one going on Holiday to America this year, so this would be an ideal Bon Voyage card.
What I used.
a 5x5" card blank, the Lil Cowgirl Digi Stamp, Promarkers, some Crystal Accents by Ranger, Sakura gel pens, and some strips of Red, and white paper, a small square of blue pearlised paper, and some punched out stars.
I made the insert using the digi in my favourite Graphics Program.
 I laid the strips on a thin sheet of paper, and glued them in position, then added the blue, square, and for those Americans reading I know there arent the right number of stars! I am English! Would you know the right way to draw the Union Jack?. I bent and folded the stripes and stars sheet so that it forms a flapping flag, and glued it into position, before adding the digi to the front. The sentiment was cut using Spellbinders Labels 22.

 This is Superhero Zell and her Walker digi.
This was quite hard for me to do, as I am sure you have guessed by now that I need an idea to spark me into action, but it only took 2 days before the idea appeared.
This one I have titled "The morning after the night before!"
I think this is how most teenagers/early 20's must feel the day after their birthdays! So I did this as a male themed birthday card.
I used:
Promarkers, scraps of Fabric, Blue Card stock, a Cheery Lynn Mega doily die, and a needle and thread. Insert was made using a backing sheet of digi paper, a frame punch and the digi stamp.
I like this idea, although I must admit, this one suited my hand sewing style down to the ground! Rough and ready lol, bit like the stitches on Superhero Zell! Give me a sewing machine and I am fine, but I wasnt getting it out just for doing the card, there isnt enough room in here!!
Right Blogger is playing silly devils again, so I will have to post this then try to edit it properly when it lets me back in, have fun guys and girls, xxx
