DIGISTAMPS 4 JOY NEW RELEASE


Hi Everybody!


We have a brand new release in store today, just in time for your Christmas creations!

This cutie is called My Christmas Tree.  I have coloured the image with markers.  I decided the tree needed to be a cookie too, and I have placed them both on a plate, which I cut using a Wonky Stitches die from Creative Dies, and coloured with my markers.

My papers and sentiment are from the Heartfelt Creations Celebrate The Season pack.  The little board and cookie cutters are Dress It Up buttons, and the white wooden embellishments are KaiserCraft.  I have sprayed them with white Gesso.  I've also added a strip of lace.

You can find this and all our new images here:

 And of course, we share all things DigiStamps 4 Joy in our FaceBook group, where we'd love you to join us!

PET LOVERS CHRISTMAS 2018 20


This is the 20th in a series of Christmas cards I am making for pet lovers.

For this card I doubled up an adorable kitty digi from Whimsy Stamps, called Scruffy Cat.  I have coloured them with markers, to match the recipient's kitties, and added a little background for them.  I've used a Poppy Crafts stitched die to cut them out and for the paper behind them.

My papers and sentiment are from the PhotoPlay Frosty Friends pack.  The Christmas lights are buttons from Buttons Galore & More

PET LOVERS CHRISTMAS 2018 19

This is the 19th in a series of Christmas cards I am making for pet lovers.  If you've missed the rest, the idea is to keep them simple, low cost and low effort.  I made the first few using Hunkyddory toppers and then moved on to a few versatile digi images.  This one is from Digi Doodle Studios.  I've used it several times for this series of cards.  

The image is called Midnight Prancer.  I have coloured it with markers, and drawn in a front door behind it.

My papers are from the Echo Park Celebrate Winter pack, and the 2 sentiment tags are from the PhotoPlay Here Comes Santa collection.  I've added a few little pearls and a teeny Recollections wreath to the door.
