Third attempt (Digi Stamps)

My THIRD ''Digi Stamp'' attempt at coloring it with coloring pencils.. I'm having way too much fun!
I'm getting better and better and having fun changing up the hair colors!! 

Once again, this stamp I bought online from ''Saturated Canary'' (check her out).


Second attempt (Digi Stamp) Using coloring pencils!

This Digi Stamp is my SECOND attempt..  My coloring skills are improving!! Yahoo.

I feel like a kid again! (Digi Stamps)

Hey Bloggers!!!

I've been joining a couple new art circles and loving some super fun creative art blogs out there.. 
I've been keeping busy learning all about ''Digi Stamps''. I don't know why I haven't heard about that world of crafts before but I'm absolutely loving the idea and I've been keeping real busy surfing the net to find out alot more about it and WoW there's a whole other creative art world out there I never knew about haha!! So for you who are also new to the Digital world of stamps it's pretty great haha.. how it works is you buy stamps (images) you like online and then you receive them by e-mail usually almost right away (beats waiting weeks to receive them in the mail and having to pay for shipping!) 

What's really great about ''Digi Stamps'' is that you can play around with the size you want them on your computer and then just print them out.. so easy to do and works so good for projects of any scale. Even when I stretch the image real big it still looks perfect and not all distorted. This is a new world I'm diving right into! I've always been one to doodle and love to color and play around with texture and shading.. Only thing is, I haven't done it for years now.. Man I felt like a little kid again when I pulled out my coloring pencils!! The fallowing pictures are of a ''Digi Stamp'' I purchased online a couple days ago. I decided to print it huge on a regular sheet of white printer paper because I felt like playing around and getting my coloring groove back. As the famous ''Copic markers'' are ridiculously expensive (but apparently work amazing for this type of project).. I'm sticking to my coloring pencils (for now) haha.. So the fallowing is my very FIRST attempt at shading and coloring in a Digi....

I got this awesome Digi Stamp from Saturated Canary, 
The artist is Krista. (She's amazing, I totally love her style!)
Check out her work on her website...

 I picked this one to be my first Digi Attempt because it makes me think of me and my Smash Book ;) LOL.

Infinity Card Tutorial

Here is another version of my Infinity Card I made in January. Once again, a little late posting. I also took a few pictures as I was creating this so I'll add a bit of a step by step.





Infinity Card: To Love & Be Loved

Here is my Infinity / Never Ending Card I made January 28th.  
I am a little late posting.. (sorry!!) to be honest I kind of forgot I had made it.
I was going threw my piles of ''completed cards'' and came upon it so I decided to dig up a few pictures 
(I always take pictures as I do my art projects) so I just had to dig in my computer. 




Here is a bit of a breakdown.. what goes threw my creative mind.. I always cut more pieces then needed and try and see what would work better.. this makes the process so much longer haha but cant help it!

Stair Step Card: Road Trip

Stair Step Card
Road Trip!!
I made this stair step card very quickly playing around with some of the design paper I had. 
I could add so much more depth and shading.. but this is just to show an idea of the card. 
Don't forget to always have fun and make it your own :)

Step by Step


 Please note that I am not quite done yet.. I am waiting for my new stamps to come in. (I ordered a bunch of fun new sentiment stamps and I am planing on putting one on the second layer beside the tree. That is why it looks empty. I might add a couple colorful flowers here and there to fill in the spaces.. once I know how big the sentiment will be.

Owl Card: Cricut Create.

 I used the cartridge 'Create a Critter' on my Cricut Create.
