Meow You Doin

Hi everyone!!

I’m continuing my quest to use stamp sets that I either haven’t used at all yet or haven’t seen some love in a long time.

I bought this stamp set at Scrapbook Expo LAST YEAR!! Because one of my Best Friends and Scrapbook Expo Buddy had just gotten a cat and I told her that was my excuse for buying cat stamp sets now!

But like so many things I put it away and never used it. So I pulled it out and made this cute card with it!

I really went out of my comfort zone and coloring this cat. I’m usually a solid color animal colorer… but I pushed myself and I’m really happy with how it came out!

Under the Sea Digistamps4Joy Release

It’s that time again for a new release at Digistamps4Joy!

I went with an under the sea theme for this release!

I hope this might help inspire some of you who may be a little leery of using Digital Stamps. In this card, I combined both traditional stamping and Digi Stamping. I know some of the people I’ve talked to who use traditional stamps get stuck in the idea that you need to use them on completely digital projects. But as long as you have a printer and some kind of program that can resize images (Microsoft Word, Photoshop, Gimp, Paint, etc) you can use a digital stamp like any other stamp you might have.

I’m hoping to possibly get a few more Digital Stamp how-to blogs/videos in before the end of the year. But until that happens feel free to hit that contact me button or leave a comment and I’ll do what I can to help you and make sure I cover that topic in one of the blogs or videos.

I hope you’ll stop by the Digistamps4Joy Blog to see what the other fantastic Design Team members have created and hopefully you’ll also check out the Digistamps4Joy Store and give these awesome digi stamps a try.

Happy Belated Birthday with Lawn Fawn

Hello Everyone! I don’t know about you but I feel like I am the worst at sending birthday cards… I had bought this stamp set a few months ago because it reminded me of an old college friend who loved sloths! I hadn’t gotten around to using it yet and in an effort to use more of my stamp sets I pulled it out to make a happy belated birthday card. Which let’s be real I will probably also never send. ☺️

Playing with Pop Ups

I’ve had my eye on the Lawn Fawn Stiched Hills Pop Up Dies as long as they have been released I finally ordered them a few weeks ago after finding some inspiration in my Hedgehog Hollow Box! I also had a birthday coming up and needed a card so this seemed perfect!

 

Let it me say photographing pop up cards is kind of hard…

Birthday Wreath

Hello everyone!!!

I’m here today with a Birthday Card using the Gina K Designs Wreath Builder! It’s so much fun and I’ve heard rumors it’s supposed to be back in stock soon! My theme here was a birthday card for a 9/10 year old boy… I’ll admit it never made it in the mail even though I made it in plenty of time for his birthday… oops…

A Very Special Thank You!

We all have those really special friends in our life. One of mine happens to be a co-worker and also a crafty friend! She was kind enough to let me borrow a stamp set of hers for my 2017 Disney Scrapbook. Which I’m sharing exclusively on Instagram so go check that out if you are interested. I’ll probably share my favorite finished pages here sometime in the fall when it’s done but for now, progress pictures are all over on Instagram!!

Moving on this very special friend has been super important to me this year as I deal with some family health issues behind the castle walls. I decided to make her a quick thank you card for the letting me borrow the stamp set but I hope she realizes just how much that card needed to say. (Which she does now because she’s probably reading this! Hi Emily! Check her out on Instagram at letteredandlovelydesigns. Coming to a blog near you soon.)

On to the card!

I love this simple sponging technique a very quick and easy way to color an image if you don’t have a ton of time to spend on it. I also absolutely love this new Gina K Designs Rose Gold embossing powder. It comes across a little heavy gold in the pictures but in real life, it’s a really soft gold that I love.

Daisy Bucket: Digistamps4joy New Release

Hello Crafty Friends!

I have to say I think Daisy’s might be my favorite flower.

I’m not a huge flower person but I can enjoy some nice flowers from time to time especially if they are bright and colorful!

You can imagine I was quite excited to see that this week’s Digistamps4joy release included this fun daisy image! It was a blast to color and I hope you’ll consider picking it up for yourself.
