I’ve been asked to be part of the Clearly Digi StampsTeam!
Today we are sharing with you the newest release of CDS stamps and there is something for everyone. From the whimsical to the traditional; there is even a patriotic stamp just perfect for you to use to remember those who serve our country this Memorial Day.
My first card is an easel card and it worked so well for the riddle! I just love the bright yellow paired with the gray and black.
Tools/Embellishments: PaperTrey Ink Hexagon Die Plate, Ribbon, Button, Stickles
Layout: Easel Card
This next card is made using a stamp from one of CDS’s newest artists – Patrick Dunnegan. Now before you go an think this stamp is hard to color – let me assure you it is just the opposite. If you color outside the line a bit – who is going to know, it camo after all and I should know after coloring three of this guys up!
Stamps/Images: Soldier Tom
Papers: Bo Bunny Double Dot Embossed, Cardstock Bazzill Cardstock
Coloring Media: Copics
Tools/Embellishments: Spellbinder Star and Labels Twenty-One Die, Buttons and Glossy Accents

It’s time for this weeks From the Heart Stamps Sketch Challenge!

Papers: At the Park – Nitwit Collections Digi Paper
Dies: Clouds – Memory Box, Circle and Scalloped Circle – Spellbinders
One of the great things about digital stamps is it is so easy to flip them and makes them so much more versatile than rubber stamps. I used the wf format image so I could layer it over my clouds background digi paper. When you use the wf format it allows you to color the potion of the stamp that need to be colored – so much easier than manually cutting out the image and adhering it to the background!
Thanks so much for the visit and stopping by! Dee
Clear it Out – Anything Goes with 2 or more Patterned Papers
Sunday is Mother’s Day here in the United States.
I want to wish each of you moms out there a wonderful and special day!
Today I am sharing the card that I will be giving to my mom this Mother’s Day. My mom doesn’t own a computer nor does she have any desire to learn anything about them so I’m not worried her surprise will be spoiled. My mom loves to display all of the cards she receives so I felt it was only fitting to make her card into an easel card.
The challenge this week at Digi Digi Stamps is “Show Us Your Bling”. Now what girl doesn’t enjoy just a bit of sparkle and bling? The flowers I’m using already had gems on them but the colors clashed a bit so I swapped the jewels out with colors that better coordinate with my card. (I have a hint for you – I used clear gems and colored them with the same copics used to color my stamp, a sure-fire way to know the colors will work!).
Our FABULOUS Sponsor this fortnight is DIGI DARLA’S and our winner will receive 5 digis of choice! DigiDarla is the brain child of Kim Eskola and her daughter Emilea. They both enjoy creating and when the idea of creating digital stamps came up, it sounded like the most wonderful way to earn ever! There was only one problem! We are both shy and dislike the center of attention! As a way of “hiding behind the scenes” and avoiding having one spokeswoman, DigiDarla was born!
Papers: The Bees Knees – Nitwit Collections Digi Papers

Digi Haven – Mother’s Day with Flowers
I’m back! Yeah!!! After a couple of really tough weeks at work I’m finally getting a chance to play along with a few challenges. I felt terrible missing out on last weeks From the Hearts Stamps Sketch Challenge – I’ve only missed one so far. I really enjoy sketch challenges as they force me out of my comfort zone.
Here is this weeks sketch:
I’m using this month’s freebie For You Mouse. If you played along in the challenge last month, you will be emailed this image for FREE! If you missed out, you can still play along with the challenge by purchasing the image. Then you can enter the challenge and receive next month’s digi free. OR if you spend $10 in the From The Heart Stamps store this month, you can enter code 4YOUMOUSE to receive this as a free gift. (Make sure your purchase doesn’t include this image or you will receive 2).
Papers: Super Mee Wee – Nitwit Collections Digi Paper
Extras: Glossy Accents, Ribbon
To change things up a bit, I took the sentiment and cut it apart and then matted each word. The flowers have just a touch of glossy accents and makes them just shine!
I hope I’ve inspired you to play along with this week’s FTHS Sketch Challenge – I can’t wait to see your creations! Dee

QKR Stampede - Favorite Things (dies and Digi Papers)
Lili’s Little Fairies – Photo Inspiration
This was a tough challenge for me. I’m a traditionalist. I love my square and rectangle shaped cards. For me this was definitely a challenge. Okay, a large tag probably isn’t the biggest stretch from a square card but it works for me!
