are giving away 3 digi images of the winner's choice, and 

are giving a $12 voucher to their store!

Super prizes, I'm sure you'll agree!

I have a fantastic image from Time For Tea Designs to show you today.  It's called Football Al, and I have coloured him with markers.  If you look closely, you'll see I've given him a few muddy/grassy patches too, because any soccer player (or soccer player's mum, in my case) knows, that once that outfit is on that body, the mud and grass just magically jumps on there too!  I love this little guy's face!  He couldn't look more excited to have that ball under his arm!

All other elements were cut on my Cameo.

Over to you!  With three great prizes up for grabs this week, you don't want to miss out on entering your creation into our challenge.  Be sure to pop over to our sponsors to see their adorable images too!  Just click on their logos above.

Good luck!

Hello Everybody!

Dollie is from the Dollie Daydream Girl Talk Collection, as are these fantastic dotty papers.  I just love how edgy and hip she is!  I have coloured her with markers, and done a little bit of paper piecing with the background dotty paper, to give her a dotty skirt and hair tie.  I double layered the one side of her skirt, to give it a bit of dimension.  

I've used loads of dies on this card, and added a heart charm and s few sparkly gems.

Before I show you a few close-up shots of my card, here are a few important links for you:

Hi There crafters!

A few super cute images are going live in the DigiStamps 4 Joy shop today, and I have created a little scene to showcase them for you!

I simply couldn't decide which of these adorable little outfits I wanted to work with, so I decided to use all of them!  You'll find all of them in the New Products section in the shop.

I've also used Misteri - Where's Summer?  She's dreaming of her trip and planning what needs to be shoved into that suitcase!

Everything has been coloured with markers.  The suitcase is a Jolee's sticker; the plane and clouds are Little B, and the kitty, who's made herself at home in the suitcase - as all respectable kitties would, is a Dress It Up button.

You'll find all these stamps and many more in the shop.  Just click the logo below:

To get a few more ideas, visit our blog, and don't forget that you still have a few days to enter our monthly challenge there!

And we'd love you to share your creations using Digistamps 4 Joy images with us, in our FaceBook Group! Lots of inspiration to see there too!

 Thanks so much for popping in!

The Creative Crafters Challenge #3: Anything Goes

Wednesday 18 April 2018


Hello and welcome!

We have a brand new challenge starting at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges today, and we have 2 great prizes up for grabs:

is giving away a $15 gift certificate to their store, and 

is giving away 4 digi images of the winner's choice.

This week I have a Fred She Said image to show you.  I absolutely love pansies, so it was a real treat to use this image.  It is called Tea Cup Pansies, and I have coloured it with markers.  I started by printing out the image 3 times, so that I could layer it up with puffy pads, to give the image even more depth. 

 I have created a pocket on my base card, embossing the top and bottom pieces with Sizzix embossing folders, and then giving the bottom piece a curvy border with a Spellbinders cut & emboss border die.  The tag was also cut using a Spellbinders die.

The sentiment is a Simone Clay stamp, and the butterfly is Mont Marte.

You can pop back to the challenge blog to see what the rest of the Design Team have created for your inspiration this week, or visit one of our great sponsors, by clicking on their logos above.

Good luck!
