Hat Bouquet Girl by Lemon Shortbread Digital Stamps

 Good morning/afternoon!  Welcome to my DT post for the new challenge on the Lemon Shortbread Challenge Blog which starts today.  The theme is always "Anything Goes".  Easy, right?

http://lemonshortbreadchallenge.blogspot.com/

I chose the beautiful "Hat Bouquet Girl" image by Lemon Shortbread which you can find in Vera's etsy shop here:  

https://www.etsy.com/listing/540875270/digital-stamp-hat-bouquet-girl-digi?ref=shop_home_active_77 


I drew the background, and the flowers are handmade. I wanted the flowers to have a bit of dimension so I added very tiny pieces of 3-D foam to all the petals.  Crazy and time consuming but I like the effect.  I used Copics and Polychromos to colour the image.

Thank you for stopping by.  Have a happy day.  Hugs, Lori xx


Materials and Tools Used 

Flowers:     Fiskars punches
Sentiment:  Computer generated and back with Spellbinders "Big Scalloped Circles Large" dies

Hi friends!  I hope you had a happy weekend.  Is it really almost the end of July?  Time sure flies!  I decided to create a monochromatic card this time.  I used Conie Fong's stunning "Butterfly Daisy" image, found here:  


There are four more images included with this image.  As usual, I used Copics and Polychromos to colour this lovely image.  The cherry blossom is handmade while the other flowers are by I Am Roses.  I applied clear Wink of Stella to the fairy's wings and the butterfly's wings.  

I made this DT card for Conie's current monthly Facebook challenge.  She also has a Colouring Only challenge.  We would love to see your creations.

Girl with Book by Lemon Shortbread Digital Stamps

Hi friends!  Hope you are doing well.  Lemon Shortbread Challenge Blog has a new challenge which starts today.  The theme is always "Anything Goes".    http://lemonshortbreadchallenge.blogspot.com/

 I chose the beautiful "Girl with Book" image as my DT inspiration.  You can find it in Vera's etsy shop, along with so many other gorgeous images, here:  

https://www.etsy.com/listing/498632082/digital-stamp-girl-with-book-digi?ref=shop_home_active_101



Reading is one of my favourite hobbies and I remember coming across that wonderful quote by the English author, Neil Gaiman,  some time ago.  What a truly marvelous quote!

I used Copics and Polychromos to colour this fabulous image.  As a background for the image, I thought it was a clever idea to use a die which looks like a bookmark.  I used the top portion of Spellbinders "Labels 11" dies to create the bookmark.

As always, I thank you for visiting.  I wish you a happy day.  Hugs, Lori xx

Westie Wooki Winter Pup by Digi Doodle Studios

Hello friends!  Today, I am showcasing the truly darling "Westie Wooki Winter Pup" image by Digi Doodle Studios which you can find in Dina's etsy shop here: 
 https://digidoodlestudios.com/collections/digital-stamps/products/westie-wooki-winter-pup-digi-doodle-studios-digi-stamp

I seem to be making quite a number of slimline cards lately.  It's enjoyable to try something different.  Besides, they are very popular nowadays and I'm hooked!


This endearing image is coloured with Copic markers.  I coloured the background of the image so that it matches the background paper.  I added some glitter to the areas where there is snow, and added some tiny snowflakes around the entire front of the card.  I thought that the background paper from Heartfelt Creations was perfect for the image.  I am quite happy with the way it turned out.  Modest, aren't I?  LOL!

Digi Doodle Studios has a monthly blog challenge (theme this month:  Christmas in July) and a Facebook Challenge.  We'd love to see your creations.  

Thanks very much for visiting. I sincerely appreciate it.  Hugs, Lori xx

Materials and Tools Used

Background paper and sentiment:  Heartfelt Creations "Bright and Merry" collection
Snowflakes:  Tiny punch from Studio G
Corners:  Fiskars

Relaxing Bubbles by House Mouse Designs

 Hello everybody!  I needed a masculine birthday card and so I found a stamped image in a drawer where I keep coloured and stamped images.  I thought it would be perfect. 

This cute image is "Relaxing Bubbles" by House Mouse Designs and I believe it is a rubber mounted stamp. This adorable image reminded me of how much I enjoy taking a bath every now and then, especially in the fall and winter months.

When I moved here three years ago, I left a few boxes unpacked and it might be in one of those boxes.  I tried to find it on the House Mouse store, without success.  It may have been discontinued.  Sorry about that.

As always, I used my Copic markers to colour this adorable image.

I wish my American friends a happy July 4th.  Stay safe, enjoy your weekend, and hope to see you again.  Hugs, Lori xx


Materials and Tools Used
