Happy Witches Brew by Digi Doodle Studios

Hello friends!  Halloween always brings back some wonderful memories of my children when they would dress up in their costumes and go Trick-or-Treating around our neighbourhood.  What fun they had!  Of course, I would drive them to each house.  I also had a lot of fun making their costumes.  

The theme on the Digi Doodle Studios Challenge Blog this month is CREEPY CUTE / SPOOKY / BELIEVE IN MAGIC.  There is also a DDS Facebook challenge.

I chose the fabulous Happy Witches Brew by Digi Doodle Studios for my DT card.  I just had to draw a background for this cute witch.  


I used a combination of Copics and Polychromos to colour the image and background.  The cobwebs and the cute little black kitty are stamps that I have in my stash.  

I am really sad to inform you that Digi Doodle Studios will be closing its etsy shop at the end of this month.  So, hurry over and visit before they close their doors.  They will, however, continue to produce clear stamps, dies and more on Ink n' Splatter.

Thank you for visiting.  I truly appreciate it.  Have a lovely day, and take good care of yourselves.  Hugs, Lori xx

Cute Dressmaker by The Paper Shelter Digital Stamps

Hey there, friends!  Is September really almost over?  Times surely flies!  The new challenge (#527) on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog starts today.  This week, the theme is BUTTONS and/or BOWS.

I chose the darling Cute Dressmaker image by The Paper Shelter Digital Stamps.  Instead of using real buttons, I decided to use part of a sticker frame set that I bought at Walmart many, many years ago!  LOL  I used some 3-D foam to raise it for some depth.

As always, I used Copics and Polychromos to colour this delightful image.  And, I used silver paper for the blades of the scissors.

If you would like to see more wonderful inspiration by the other DT, see here.  While you are there, why don't you join us?  There are some fabulous prizes to be won.  


Thank you for your visit.  It's very appreciated.  Have a happy day.  Hugs, Lori xx

Fairy Elida by Digi Doodle Studios Digi Stamps

Hello peeps!  Hope you are well.  Today, I am sharing my second DT card for the DDS challenge using the lovely Fairy Elida image by Digi Doodle Studios Digi Stamps.  The theme for this month is METAL / SPARKLE.  I chose the latter.  There is also a DDS Facebook challenge here.  Here is my card:  

I decided to use an adorable image by Dreamstime called Mushroom House for the background.  This sweet little fairy is coloured with Copic markers.  The cute butterflies around her are by Your Next Stamp "Spring Smiles" clear stamps.

For sparkle, I used pink glitter paper, and I applied clear Wink of Stella to her wings for a lovely shimmer.  

Sadly, Digi Doodle Studios Digi Stamps will be closing at the end of October but they will continue to produce clear stamps and papers on Ink n' Splatter.  So, hurry and visit the shop before they close.

Well, that's all from me today.  Thank you for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.  Hugs, Lori xx

Flutterby Daisy by Conie Fong

Hello, dear friends!  I am so happy that the temperatures have cooled a bit in my neck of the woods, and I hope it stays that way.  Having said that, I decided to use autumn colours on my Design Team card.  This gorgeous little lady is Flutterby Daisy by Conie Fong.  She is one of my favourite images.


I coloured her with Copic markers and Polychromos pencils, and I drew the background for her. 

Conie has a monthly challenge on Facebook.  If you have some time, why not join in the fun?  There are some beautiful images to be won.

That's all from me today.  Thank you for visiting.  I wish you a lovely day.  Take good care of yourselves.  Hugs, Lori xx

Bumble Becca by Digi Doodle Studios

Hello friends, and welcome to my post today.  Digi Doodle Studios' new challenge has started.  The theme is METAL and/or SPARKLE.  I love anything sparkly and so I chose to go with SPARKLE.  There is also a DDS Facebook challenge.  

This darling image is one of the images from the new release.  She is called "Bumble Becca".  

The background is drawn by me, and I coloured her with my usual mediums (Copics and Polychromos).  I used black glitter cardstock for all the mats, and I applied clear Wink of Stella glitter to her wings. 

I am sad to inform you that DDS will be retiring their digital line but they will continue to produce their clear stamps on Ink n' Splatter.  Also, there is a retirement sale going on now until September 11.   

Well, that's all from me today.  Thank you for visiting.  I hope to see you again.  Hugs, Lori xx
