Today’s card isn’t one I’d usually be sharing at the end of September, but the weather here is still warm and sunny (it’s warmer than it was in early August). So although the sentiment says “hello” you can consider this my little farewell to Summer with The Greeting Farm’s Miss Anya Summer.
Happy Friday! I promised I’d be back with a card to share and here I am, albeit somewhat later than I intended but what’s new?
The card I have to share today is one I’ve been meaning to put together for what seems like forever. I coloured the digital stamp image back in March, along with some other fantastic “out of this world” digis from SCACD Digital. Since the start of this month (when I sorted out a huge pile of coloured images that need to be made into cards) I have been planning to make this card. Not bad, eh?
Emily over at Stamping Bella has been working me hard, colouring images for her upcoming release! She’s sharing some sneak peeks over at Bloggabella at the moment, and you will definitely want to pop over to take a look because you can win stamps from the new release just by commenting on the preview posts over there.
Just a quick post to let you know that there is a FLASH SALE going on over at Susana’s Custom Art & Card Design on the SCACD Digital Stamp range! All digital stamps are on offer at $2 USD each! The sale ends at 6am California time on Thursday 18th September 2014, so be quick.
Two new floral digital stamps have been added to the range today:
Make sure you grab a tea/coffee and have a good look through the range of digital stamp images, there’s definitely a little something for all tastes and at $2 each they are a steal!
I’ll be back with a new card very soon, hope you’re having a great week!
You wouldn’t really know it from this blog, but I love flower stamps/images. I have a collection of stamps and digital images because they are perfect to use for family members who wouldn’t necessarily appreciate cute or quirky character cards. I promise that I’ll try and share a few more floral and other non-character cards here from time to time, in amongst all the character cards!
My Mum’s birthday was on Sunday, so when Susana from SCACD Stamps sent me the new Sunflower digital image from the Carmen Medlin for SCACD Digital stamps range I knew exactly what to do with it! Mum is a keen gardener and loves sunflowers, so this was perfect. I kept the background simple and bright to create a cheery card.
Today I’m sharing another card created with the adorable Wild Sprouts Wild Child set from The Greeting Farm. You can see my previous card by scrolling down to the next post or clicking HERE.
This card uses the other character in the set. LOVE him! I think he might be my favourite of the pair, although that could easily change next time I colour them up.
Today’s card was created using a stamp set I fell in love with instantly – The Greeting Farm Wild Sprouts Wild Child. SO cute, and so much fun to colour. I’ll be colouring her again soon, as I really want to colour her outfit to look like a panda. On this card I went for the reverse as I wanted to colour her hood in black. Other completely unrealistic colour combinations would be good too – why not have fun and go wild?
Today I’d like to share a card I created last week, at the same time as the card in my Happy with SCACD Digital post. I love how these cards turned out, so bright, bold and cheerful.
As with my previous card, the focal image is a digital stamp from the Carmen Medlin for SCACD Digital range. “Hoverfly” is another fun image for going all out with bright colours, or you could go grungey and creepy. Either way – FUN!
Over the weekend I took a break from work and my epic “To Do” list and had a little crafty playtime “just because”. I knew I wanted to play with one of the new Zen Beauties fairies from SCACD Stamps, so I picked “Serenity” and made the rest up as I went along.
I stamped the image using a pale ink on Make it Colour Blending card so I could colour it using the “No Lines” technique (see end of post for more info and links to other examples). Because I intended to airbrush the background, I also stamped the image in black on scrap paper to cut out and use as a mask.
