Ta Da!


Did I get your attention?  I sure hope so.  I’ve been making cards lets see for about 2 years now. And on this journey I have collected a great number of rubber and clear stamps (which I love using).  But nothing has surprised me more about how much I love working with Digital Stamps.

Now how many digital stamps can you collect?  Well as many as you like because you can save them on your computer.  And the best part you can re-size them to fit any size card.  So with that said I love to challenge you to create your next card using a digital stamp.  And if you don’t have any you can stop over at My Time Made Easy (MTME) and check out all the awesome digital stamps and papers. 

Todays card has both digital stamp called Be Strong & paper called Blooming With Elegance on it.  And the flower (more detail below) on the card was made with some of the background digital paper.  Then I cut two butterflies from the paper for my card.  And with some help of a little bling & more paper this is what I created.

May All Your Weeds Card

The sketch below was part of our challenge but I deviated somewhat because my mind’s eye just saw something different.  It happens sometimes. :)  And its an easy sketch to follow. So come on let me see what you can do with the sketch.

I took one of the digital papers from Blooming With Elegance that had various sizes of flowers on it. I cut three flowers out.  Then I spritz them with Perfect Pearls crinkled them up & let dry.  Once dried I opened each flower very carefully so not to tear.  Glued them together & added a pearl colored with a copic marker (Duck Blue) to match the shades in the flower.


Check out what the other DTs did this week over at the MTME Blog.  I know their creations will inspire you to grab a digital stamp and begin your journey down Digital Lane.  Thank you for stopping by & I hope you were able to leave a comment.

  8. Fran, I love this card and I especially love your flower. I'm just a bit confused about the flower - if you cut out the printed flower then is the printed side down? Or did you digitally remove everything on the flower except for the outline? It really looks great! Love the shine! I need to try it sometime. :)


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment on my Post. I so appreciate your compliments and hope you will come back soon.
Hugs, Fran
