Power Poppy "Camellias"

I have been collecting Marcella's images for quite a while now and I have decided it is time to use them extensively.  Her images are so crisp and so very easy to work with.  My aim is to collect every single one of them but I hope that takes a while because I want her to keep producing these gorgeous digital stamps. I was going to create a card with Camellias, when I by chance found her blog challenge, so I hope as soon as I finish this blog post I can get it over to her blog and beat the deadline.  Thank you for looking.

Gerda Steiner Designs Progressive Challenge June 2017

I love this month's progressive challenge digi "Hello Friend Turtle" from Gerda Steiner Designs, thank you so much for your generosity in giving us an image each month to create with. This month I have used an embossed card and simply put a strip of washi tape across it and of course added a sentiment.  Love washi tape, just need to know when and where to use it!  Thank you for checking out my blog, see you around the traps.

Imagine that Digistamp Link-up June 2017

This month I have chosen to create with "Sweet Sleep Boy", a clean and simple baby card.  Not so sure on how I handled the fine hair, hope it doesn't look like a helmet on the little cutie.

Ericraft Stamps "Someone Light my Fire"

Well here we have another dragon digi from Ericraft Stamps.  This one is called "Someone Light my Fire".  Doesn't he look sick and sorry, perfect for a get well card or you might have a light bulb moment yourself on how to use him.  Again, get him while the dragon new releases are on special at https://www.etsy.com/au/listing/537819457/digital-stamp-someone-light-my-fire?ref=shop_home_active_1 .  The price only stays until the next new release subject, but I think there will soon be 1 or even 2 more dragons to collect in the series.  Keep an eye out for the next little cutie, coming soon!.  Thanks for dropping by.

Ericraft Stamps - "Cookie Stealing Elf"

At Ericraft Stamps we are continuing with the theme "Elves" for our Christmas in July promotion.  Here we have "Cookie Stealing Elf" found here https://www.etsy.com/au/listing/522727548/digital-stamp-cookie-stealing-elf-300dpi?ref=shop_home_active_2 in the Etsy shop at a discounted price of AUD$1.50.  Be sure to grab this elf or one of the others or all to get yourself organised with your card-making for the 2017 festive season.  Use your imagination and add your own sentiment to this cute elf. I have put foam tape under Cookie Stealing Elf's Santa hat to give it dimension even adding a double thickness under the top near the bell.  Don't forget to grab these elves while they are at a 50% discount.  Who knows how long this special will last and be out on the lookout for possibly more elves from Erica: she seems to be on a roll with the cheeky elves and I know the members in her Facegroup Group came up with some great ideas for more.  If you aren't a member, hop on over to https://www.facebook.com/groups/Ericraft/ and join now.  We would love to see some more members supporting a fantastic Australian digital stamp artist.

Scrapper's Delights - 15th June 2017 Inspiration

For June's inspiration I am using "Time 4 a Cuppa" which you can find here http://scrappersdelights.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=89_183&products_id=750 and as an added bonus it is still on special at 40% discounted.  I have also used the coffee pot and some of the sentiments that are on "Coffee Sentiments"
http://scrappersdelights.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=89_104&products_id=749 also discounted at the moment.  As a matter of fact while the special is in place you could also purchase "Tea Sentiments" http://scrappersdelights.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=89_104&products_id=748 and get out of it cheaper than the actual bundle is sold for.  What a bargain, you couldn't pass up that.  The background designer paper comes from a 6" x 6" pad called Time for Spring from Fancy Pants Designs.  I have used it quite a bit for Coffee cards, of course, don't know how long it's been in my stash.  I hope you will pop over to the Scrapper's Delights store http://scrappersdelights.com/store/ while the 40% sale on individual digis is still on.  I don't know how long this fantastic sale will last.  Thank you for checking out my inspiration for this month.

Ericraft Stamps "Breezy"

My first card for Ericraft Stamps as a Design Team Member.  Thank you Erica for giving me this opportunity to showcase Aussie digital artists.  This digital image is called "Breezy" and is great for practising hair with your Copics, and I think I need more practice.  I love using face stamps on inspirational cards, it gives a more personal touch.  My yellow dot background is not paper, it's actually a washi tape sheet I picked up on special at a retreat shop I recently attended.  Of course my flowers, doily and button come from my stash - how else am I going to get that stash down!  Thank you for joining me today on my first Ericraft journey.  I have purchased Erica's stamps in the past and hope to showcase more for you in the future.  I am also excited to be working with Angie Jones, a talented colourist from our home country Australia.  Us Aussie girls have to stick together to get the word out that  we have digital artists here too, you know.  Check her blog https://angiescraftfusion.blogspot.com.au/2017/06/breezy-faith.html out too for some great ideas to use Breezy.  Erica has a special on Breezy over at her Etsy shop at the moment, but be quick, it won't be $1.50 for too long https://www.etsy.com/au/listing/534050115/digital-stamp-breezy-300dpi-jpeg-file-by?ref=shop_home_active_2

Scrapper's Delights - June 2017 Progressive Freebie

This month's progressive freebie is Lady Constance.  Be sure to join our group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/376140345820051/ and request it.  I was away on retreat when I made this card, so my supplies were a little limited, as each retreat I attend, I try to take less.  Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.  However, there was a shop at a neighbouring group retreat and of course, when we did our food shopping in the local town, we found the Reject Shop which is where the clock came from.  I used a stencil to make a bit of a background with a small inkpad on vanilla cardstock and the flower and sentiment came from a Kaisercraft pack.  Of course I coloured Lady Constance with Copics.  Be sure to check out the Victorian/Steampunk section in the Scrapper's Delights store http://scrappersdelights.com/store/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=89_206 for more digital stamps that could accompany Lady Constance.  Also, we have a few new rules we want to make you aware of regarding the Progressive Challenges, so head on over to the pinned post over at Scrapper's Delights  https://www.facebook.com/groups/376140345820051/ to catch up on the latest. Thank you for checking out my blog.
