Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

Hello there, hump day is just about over!!! I am here today with a new Digi Stamp Card From
 Mommy Lhey as I promised. I am really starting to get a hang of these digi stamps. And how can you not fall in love with her images, they are simply adorable!

I am combining this weeks card with one of my favorite Simon Monday Challenges. The inspiration came from last weeks Wednesday Challenge. Their theme was Spots and Dots. Now keeping in mind of mid-summer and time of hot temperatures, long days and longing for more time to enjoy a sweet treat!  I came up with this idea for a card that would be good for any occasion.

I had a great time making this card. Easy, quick and simple! Hope you enjoy it and get inspired!

 I used the mini distress inks on watercolor paper and printed out the images on vellum paper. Before I adhered the images with Multi Medium Matte (which if you were wondering dries clear) I used a soft paint brush and splattered on dots. All the supplies I used are listed down below.

Digi Stamps by Mommy Lhey

Along my journey in this wonderful world of cardmaking, I've had the pleasure of meeting fabulous and talented crafty women. One in particular Mommy Lhey introduced me to her new Digital Stamp Line. She's one of the sweetest girl I've met and I've come to believe she's very talented. If you are interested in her products that I've used today I have linked her sites above, stop on by and check out her sites. 

Opps,  I jumped the gun. Images Not available on her site yet. Coming Soon. Be on the lookout!!!

Now, I have never really worked with digi stamps. I was a bit weary and I didn't think I could work out things with the whole saving the image and printing them out. But I was completely wrong, with the help of YouTube and all the wonderful gals that give tips online, I was breezing right by. 

I will be posting a new card every Wednesday for the next Month with a new digi image. So dont forget to stop on by next week.  Hope you get inspired to try out her digi stamps and let me know what you think!

Lawnscaping Challenge #85

Mojo 340 Sketch

Hello my crafty friends, I am here with another Lawnscaping Challenge.  I will be sharing a simple but bright card with you to help you brighten your day and hopefully make "you shine" as well. I hope you're having great weather in your neck of the woods because summer for us here in Illinois has been kind of strange. Too much rain not enough sun.

 Now, with keeping the Challenge's theme summer color combo and with a little help from one of my favorite card sketch challenge Mojo Monday this is what I came up with. I hope you enjoy it and check out the wonderful varieties of sketches they have to offer.  I hope you're feeling inspired!! Have a wonderful weekend!
