Laurel by Digi Doodle Studios Digi Stamps

 Hi peeps!  Welcome to my second DT post this month for Digi Doodle Studios.  I am featuring the darling Laurel image by Digi Doodle Studios Digi Stamps.  I wonder what kinds of books she enjoys?  Reading is one of my favourite pastimes.

The theme for this month is 3 or more layers.  I added 4 layers to my card:  the slimline die layer, two patterned papers and the glittered frame.  As always, I used Copics and Polychromos to colour the image.  

That's all from me today.  Thank you for stopping by, and remember to visit the DDS challenge blog and/or the DDS Facebook group, or both.  You may win some adorable images.  

Have a lovely day.  Hugs, Lori xx

Sweetheart by The Paper Shelter Digital Stamps

Hi peeps! I hope you are all well.  We have a super easy theme this week on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog:  ANYTHING GOES.  I decided to make a birthday card showcasing the adorable Sweetheart image by The Paper Shelter Digital Stamps. This is my DT inspiration:  

As always, my Copic markers and Polychromos pencils were used to colour this cutie.   I generally always colour an image first but, this time, I wanted to use the colours on the lovely background paper, and so I pulled some colours from the paper to colour the image. 

This will be our last challenge until August 18 because both Design Teams will be taking a break during this time. 

For more inspiration, check out what the other Design Team members made here.  If you have some time, why not join our challenge?  You may win some beautiful images.

Gnome Gift by Conie Fong

 Hello friends!  Welcome to my post today.  This is my first Design Team inspiration this month for Conie Fong's Facebook group.  This sweet little guy is Gnome Gift by Conie Fong.  He's available in PNG and JPG formats, along with some other adorable images.  This is the third card that I've made with this image because it's so cute and versatile.  

I used Copics and Polychromos to colour him, and I drew a simple background.  Then I added some tiny snowflakes.

Eloise by Digi Doodle Studios Digi Stamps

Hello, my friends!  Today, I am showcasing the darling Eloise by Digi Doodle Studios.  This cutie is is part of a new release by DDS.  Isn't she adorable?

Digi Doodle Studios has both a monthly blog challenge and a Facebook challenge.  I have been a Guest Designer for DDS since December 2020; however, I am starting this month as a full-fledged Design Team member.   So exciting!  The theme this month is 3 or More Layers.  I included four layers on my card:  the patterned paper, the layer with the embossing folder and the two frames.  

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

Thank you for visiting.  It's very appreciated.  I hope to see you all soon.  Hugs, Lori xx

Glittery and Sparkling by The Paper Shelter Digital Stamps

Hello, dear friends, and welcome to my DT post for the new challenge from The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog (#519) which starts today.  The theme this week is GOING DIGITAL.  How easy is that!  For my card, I chose the gorgeous Glittery and Sparkling image by The Paper Shelter Digital Stamps.  I adore this image!

This beauty is coloured to Copics and polychromos.  The lovely rainbow is a free clipart image, which I thought complimented the image beautifully.  I stamped some sparkles around the rainbow for some added interest because, to me, it looked too bare without them.  

Remember to stop by The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog to see some amazing inspiration by the other Design Team members.  And, if you join in the fun, you may win some really fabulous images.

Thank you very much for visiting.  I really appreciate it.  Take good care of yourselves.  Hugs, Lori xx
