DS4J New Release + New Dinosaur Baby

Hi there!  Yesterday was new release day at DS4J. I'm a day late with my card because of a few things I had to take care of at home, but better late than never right ;)    We had some great images to work with (like usual), but I thought this one was just tooooo cute to pass up!

I colored the dinosaurs in with Copic markers and cut it out using a Spellbinder's die.  I used two of the same markers to color strips of paper and adhered them to the side of the card and popped the image up using dimensional adhesive.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hop on over to the DS4J page to see what my other teammates came up with and to see what other new digital images were released :)

DS4J New Release Sunday + Stained Glass Iris

Hi there :)

Today DigiStamps4Joy releases some new images and since I think stained glass is so beautiful and since I had a really cool product to use with it, I used the image called Stained Glass Iris.   Isn't this so cool?!

I took the top photo using my Ott Light and the bottom photo using sunlight. The sun made quite a reflection on the image.

I colored the image with Copic markers then added Crackle Accents all over the front of it to get the crackly (is that even a word?) look. Pretty neat, huh?!

Wedding Dress Card + Naughty or Nice Challenges #19 "Ribbons and Bows"

Hi there :)

The beginning of the month always starts a new, fun challenge at Naughty or Nice Challenges.  This month's theme is "Ribbons and Bows" so whether you take the naughty route or the nice route, just make sure it has some sort of ribbon or bow :)

In my take on the theme, I used a ribbon to make the belt on this adorable wedding dress card.  

I adore this card. I really do. I made a bunch for shower invitations for a friend's wedding a couple of years ago and everyone loved them :)  Not only is it so pretty and celebratory, it's very fun to create!

DS4J Anything Goes Challenge + Girly Girl Twist

Hi there!

Today starts a new month long challenge at DigiStamps4Joy! The theme is always Anything Goes, but there's also an added optional twist each month.  This month's twist is "girly girl"!  

I walked into this card with a different idea, but the frame I wanted to use didn't work out so well. so I decided to leave it out.  I love how delicate and feminine it turned out :)

One of my favorite things about digital images is how you can resize them however you see fit and they're very inexpensive. This image is only $2.50 in the DS4J store and I can print it whenever I want!
