Can't Pinch This

Hey Everyone!
Happy St. Patrick's Day weekend!

I wanted to share this "Shamrockin' Birthday Card" today featuring the lovely "Rosie Cupcake" and our new "Can't Pinch This" Digi Papers.



My sister was born on St Patrick's Day, so it's always fun for me to turn an everyday image into a Shamrockin' Birthday Card!

For this sweet card, I colored Digi Stamp "Rosie Cupcake" with Copics and Prismacolors, and cut her out, along with a paper doilie and some shamrocks, using my Silhouette die cutting machine.

The background papers are from the new "Can't Pinch This" St. Patricks Day inspired Digi Papers


This colorful Shamrockin' Birthday Card has many layers was super fun to create! 

I hope I have inspired you today!!

Have a very Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year!

Pink Sylvie Lollipop

Hi Everyone

This will be my last weekly post for the Digi Doodle Studios Inspirational Blog 

No I am not stepping down from the team but we are changing things up a bit.  We have some fabulous new team members and we are going to concentrate more on the Facebook Group.  You do not want to miss out on all the fun and inspirational postings so please if you are not already a member come on over and join.

I have many favourite Images in the Store but this was the image that started me on my creative journey with Digi Doodle Studios and it is still my favourite image.  She is called Sylvie Ballerina and I have coloured her using Copics.



You can find her and all the other wonderful images in the store  HERE

This is the third time I have coloured up Sylvie Ballerina but this time she is on a Lollipop.  I am a bit addicted to making these at the moment.  I love them lol.

I Cut the circles using a Go Kreate Nesting Die and added some White/Pink Gathered Nottingham Lace.  I cut the reverse the same and sandwiched them together over the straw.  I hand tied a bow and glued this on and then finished by adding the flower gems to the edge and the centre of the bow.

























Thank you for visiting and sharing this Lollipop with me today.  Don't forget to join the Facebook Group so that you don't miss out on the games and gossip and of course the talented DT projects!   The team has doubled in size and we have some new Guest Designers joining us too.  

Hope to see you over there

Centre Step Card and Tutorial!

Hello DDS Fans!
Today I want to share with you an adorable Center Step card I created using the Digital Stamp "Blowing Bubbles" from Digi Design Studios
I am using Digital Papers from DDS today from the "Summer Crush" collection as well as a sentiment from the "Champagne Wishes" Digital sentiment set. I am also going to do a tutorial on how I made my card today, so follow along below if you wish to.
Whenever I set about to make a card I gather up all the supplies I am going to use or think I may use. I am not the type who has a clear vision in my head to start with. I have a basic idea and usually create as I go. Sometimes things I gather don't always get used as I change my mind or I add other things and embellishments at the last minute.
Step 1:
Cut your base cardstock to 5 1/2" x 11"
Step 2:
Using your paper trimmer line up your paper at the 1" mark. Move your cutting blade to 1". Cut your paper from the 1" to the 6.5" mark on your ruler.
Step 3:
Flip your paper over and repeat the above 2 steps
Step 4:
Place your paper on the score board lengthwise
Step 5:
Using your Score board and score at the 1", 2" and 6.5" marks, from the edge to the cut line
Step 6:
Repeat above steps on the opposite edge of the card
Step 7:
Score between the cut lines at 5.5"
Step 8:
Fold at the score lines starting the bottom of the paper with a mountain fold, then valley fold. The top 2 scores are mountain folds. Using your bone folder, reinforce your fold lines for crisp folds
Step 9:
Now that your base is ready, go ahead and colour your image. I downloaded the "Blowing Bubbles" digital stamp, resized the image to my desired size and printed it on my computer.
For a fun element I used a White Uniball Gel Pen and added polka dots to her hair band.
Step 10:
Now it's time to put everything together. Decorate your card as desired. I cut coordinating cardstock to make a layer and my patterned paper layers at the following sizes:
Side panels: 4 3/8"x 7/8" (cardstock), 4 1/4"x .75" (patterned paper)
Bottom panel: 5 3/8"x 7/8" (cardstock), 5 1/4" x .75" (patterned paper)
Center panel: 4 3/8"x 3 3/8" (cardstock), 4 1/4"x 3 1/4" (patterned paper)

I don't have a small butterfly die but no worry!!! I used my Butterfly Border die to make my layered butterflies. I just cut them apart and popped the top butterfly up with a small piece of foam tape.  I love using my dies in more ways then the original concept.
And voila!!!! The finished card! I added some Spectrum Noir Clear Glitter Pen to the bubbles for a bit of sparkle. I also added some clear enamel dots to mimic the bubbles.
Copics Used:
I hope my tutorial will inspire you to try to make your own Center Step card!!
Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!
