Exciting News: I'm Designing for Lindsay's Stamp Stuff!!!


How cool is that? I've been chosen by Lindsay to be on her first Design Team! She has opened an on-line digital stamp store called Lindsay's Stamp Stuff which is loaded with fun digi stamps. I have been creating cards with them, and they are every bit as fun as rubber stamps, and even more fun in that I can make them any size I want, plus I get a perfect image every time! I just love her designs and love the idea of incorporating digital stamps with my rubber and acrylic stamps.

I made this cute card as a thank you for my aunt. I went out of my comfort zone and created a 4x9 card. I found it to be such a fun size to work with! For this one I used a sheet of cream cardstock as the base and covered it with a panel of friends double sided paper. I used a small panel of green (basic grey) and a larger panel of blue (also basic grey) for the bottom. I then cut a small strip of the friends paper and used the reverse side (polka dots) as a kind of "ribbon". I pop dotted on three Prima flowers with brad centers. I printed the PRIMITIVE BIRD stamp from Lindsay's store using adobe photoshop elements, set the width to 3 inches, and printed it on cream cardstock. Next, I matted it with another panel of the green basic grey paper. I colored it with my bic mark-its and attached it to the top of the card. Lastly, I stamped "how sweet you are" with StazOn Jet Black Ink.

Here is a list of the Bic colors I used :

Oceanview Blue to color the bird, Blue Skies Blue to highlight his wing
Adobe Orange for the bird's beak
Lemon Bliss to color the flower and outer edge of the petal
Moonstone Yellow to highlight the flower and finish the petal
Meadow Green for the flower stem
Summer Melon and Margarita Green for the butterfly

I'm off now, to create some more cards and brag about my new status! Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!

Super cute card! I sometimes forget to make cards this size. This just shows me I have to challenge myself and maybe make one this size...ummm that is after I find that free time I have been searching for.
