DI'S DIGISTAMPS
with a $10 GIFT VOUCHER

I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with likeminded people.

I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw myself.


This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art.
Long may it continue!

Here is how the team interpreted the challenge:-

Fiona

For my card I have used a stamp from The Greeting Farm which I have coloured with my ProMarkers. I have printed my papers from the Crafters Companion SWALK cd. I have used a Marianne Designs Lace Border die and embellishments from my stash.

Sharon

 
I've used a Marianne die to cut the fan from deep purple card and a pale lilac pearlescent paper. The tassel and flower were coloured purple using alcohol ink. Purple gems add a hint of sparkle.

Envelope for money
 
Josephine
Made for a colleague for her parents, I've used a computer-generated sentiment and die cuts from various manufacturers including some Sizzix Susan's Garden dies for the flowers.

Yvonne
A simple layered card, using a selection of  card and papers which was quick and easy to make.

Cindy
A little grey board hanger decorated with embossing, grungepaper and card flowers and a fusible film butterfly.

Marie
 
 


I was going to sit this challenge out as purple is not my color of choice but since a few years I had a pad from Panduro with purple/lilac and turquoise designer papers. I was in a turquoise period, so when this challenge came up I decided to use some of all the purple papers left and make a few more Christmas cards using left overs of ribbon, designer papers and gem stones. The ornament dies did I buy last year but never got a round to use. The "God Jul" dies is Merry Christmas in Swedish and comes from ROX stamps.

Suze
This is a 6x6" card. The large butterfly stamp is by Stampin Up, stamped with Versamark and clear embossed onto some SU cardstock. I then die cut it with an SU framelit and matted onto a white embossed layer and some DP. The sentiment is Personal Impressions.

Julie
My Project his time is a door hanger, decorated with acrylic paint and heat embossed to give a crackle effect.  I then stamped with Fairies and stars and added a few embellishments from my stash.

Carole
I have made a 60th Birthday Card this time, using Crafter's Companion embossing folders, fabric flowers and my trusty Spellbinders.

Rebecca
For my one layer Christmas card I've stamped a snowflake and then add lots of gems and a simple sentiment.

Viv
A relatively quick and easy card using stamps, embossing powders and distress inks.

Kimx
 
My card for this challenge has been made using a fabulous Bordered Poppy stamp and Sentments from our sponsor Hobby Art. I have coloured it using Watercolour Pearlex in several different shades of purple. 

Tracey
 
For my card I used Gypsy coloured ink and stamp set 'Happy Autumn' from CTMH. I did a 2-step stamping method to make the small roses. After fussy cutting them out, I used 3D foam tape to attach them by the stem. My papers are from Color-bok and HOTP. 
 
I made a storage tin from an old Peanut tin. More details on my blog.
