Getting Spooky with SCACD Digital Stamps

SCACD Digital - Thaddeus the Vampire - www.markergeek.com

Today I’m sharing a fun card featuring an SCACD Digital Stamps image. I’m also joining in with a group of bloggers including some of the SCACD Design Team, to help showcase some of the fantastic images now available through SCACD Digital. We’re focusing on Autumn/Fall images and the spooktacular! Some people have even taken a non-spooky digital stamp and given it a creepy twist, so beware. ;)

You can find the entire range of digital stamps available over in the SCACD Digital by Carmen Medlin section at Susana’s Custom Art & Card Design.

To check out all the creative fun on display today, grab a free digital stamp and be in with a chance at winning a prize, pop on over to the SCACD Store Blog for the full details and links to other designers.

One Last Summer Card with The Greeting Farm

Miss Anya Summer - The Greeting Farm - www.markergeek.com

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.

Out Of This World – SCACD Digital Stamps

Out of This World with SCACD Digital - www.markergeek.com

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?

Birthday Sunflower

SCACD Digital - Sunflower - www.markergeek.com

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.

You’re Awesome – A Fun TGF Wild Sprout Card!

The Greeting Farm - Wild Sprouts Wild Child - www.markergeek.com

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. ;)

Hi Cutie with The Greeting Farm Wild Child

The Greeting Farm - Wild Sprouts Wild Child - www.markergeek.com

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? ;)

Be 100% You!

SCACD Digital - Hoverfly - www.markergeek.com

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!

Enjoy with Zen Beauty Serenity

SCACD Stamps - Zen Beauties - Serenity - www.markergeek.com

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.

Happy Day Mermaid!

The Greeting Farm - Magical kit Mermaid - www.markergeek.com

As promised, I’m getting back to my colouring and card-making now that all the new furniture has been delivered and organised. I’ll give you a little tour of my new office/craft space soon, just need a couple of little extras to get it fully organised *cough* Ikea trolley I’ve been admiring for months *cough*.

For now, here’s one I DIDN’T create earlier! The second card to be completed in the new house. Whoo! Several others were completed over the weekend, and I’ll be sharing them in due course.

I’ve been on a bit of a The Greeting Farm (TGF) stamping/colouring binge. They were one of my first character stamp loves, and I have been making some time to play with them because they just make me happy.
