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. 😉
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.
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?
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!
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!
I know, I’ve been quiet recently. We’ve been under the weather here, and getting things done has been an uphill struggle. Onwards and upwards though, so although I don’t have a card to share today, I’d like to share some colouring fun!
I have coloured several of the new images, but today I’d like to share a couple of my favourites with you. Like many people I have a real soft spot for Alice in Wonderland, so I was particularly thrilled to colour these up!
First up, Alice herself.
Amazing, isn’t she? I love the beautiful faces that Carmen illustrates.
Here’s her pal, the Mad Hatter. I had so much fun colouring him.
As I mentioned above, you can find this pair and some other fantastic and fun new images over in the SCACD Digital section over at Susana’s Custom Art & Card Design. If you haven’t checked the selection out before, make sure you grab your beverage of choice and settle in for a good browse, there are lots of awesome images available, with something to suit most tastes!
Was my last post really made at the end of February? Good grief! I have been a little busy behind the scenes colouring for new releases, doing the dreaded paperwork and generally trying to get caught up so that I can get on with some of the fun stuff I have planned. Bear with me a little longer, I’ll get there!
If you’ve been following this blog for a while you will probably be aware that my tastes run from cute to peculiar and everything in between, although really, weird and wonderful is definitely “me”. These new digis cater to that pretty well, so I have had a lot of fun playing with them! 😉 Cards and other creations will follow, but for now here’s a look at the images I coloured up.
I used my re-discovered Quickutz Moxie Alphabet die set to create the lettering, which I adhered to the Distress Ink background and then covered with glitter pen followed by Glossy Accents. It is hard to see from the photo, but the letters are beautifully sparkly and dimensional.
Happy Monday! I have a pair of notecards to share with you today, featuring two gorgeous images from the SCACD Digital range. Hopefully the beautiful vibrant colours will help to ward off the Monday blues. 😉
The images I used are Lotus Bloom and Lotus Side. The sentiments are both from an old Hero Arts set I re-discovered during my recent clear-out. It’s amazing what you find lying at the bottom of drawers!
The backgrounds were created using Tim Holtz Distress Ink pads and a blending tool, followed by a generous flick or two of water. I stamped the sentiments with Versafine black ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.
