Welcome Spring!

Hi all!  It is finally spring as of this past week.  Here at Imagine That Digi Stamps, the design team members are doing spring inspired cards.  Mine is called Welcome Spring.  I have included a lot of elements on this card.  I've used the digi designer paper from the Love Lifts You set and the image from the Jacqui Welcomes Spring set.  I colored with Copic markers and used Flower Soft in the flower box.   I dry embossed the yellow card and added a silk flower that I pieced and glued together.  I also glittered some sticky paper and cut the vine with a die.  I stamped Hello and cut it out with a leaf die.  Whew, that was a lot of stuff for someone who likes to keep things simple!  (There are actually more things that I did not even mention!)  Anyway, I hope you enjoy finding all of the elements that I used.

Floating By...

Hi all.  Today, I am spotlighting my inspiration card for Imagine That Digi Stamps.  I used the image called Honey & Boo Balloons from this link and the designer paper from Bella's Beauties Birthday Bubbles.  I colored the image with colored pencils and gamsol and stamped the background with a sponge.  Then, I spilled most of my gamsol all over the whole image!  Ugh, what a mess!!  I wasn't sure if there was any hope in being able to salvage it.  After letting it dry, I recolored with Copic markers.  You can see where the colors ran around the entire image.  Since I had spent so much time working on it, I decided to post it anyway.  Hopefully, you all can get the idea of what I was trying to do!  

Don't know why this image is so fuzzy!

Fly on over to Kris's store and use this coupon code to get 40% off when you spend $10 or more.
It is Imagine That Digis birthday, but you are getting the presents!

I have a winner from the birthday blog hop and 2 new cards.

Hi all.  I have randomly picked a winner from the birthday blog hop.  Congratulations to D- for writing a nice comment about my deer card.  D-, you have won a set of digi stamps 
Please contact Kris @ imaginethat.digisbykris@yahoo.com to claim your prize.  Thank you all for stopping by my blog and leaving your lovely comments.  It really means a lot to me.  I see that I also had a couple of people join my site...Wonderful!

Now, let me show you the cards that I made last week...The first one was made for a special order.
 I barely had time to scan the outside and never got a chance to scan the inside.  The saying on the inside says:  "You don't want to press your luck!"  I love the stamp with these sayings.  The leprechaun and the four leaf clover were heat embossed in black and colored with  Copic markers.

The next card is one that I did for my advance stamping club.  We were to make a card in honor of one of our members that had passed away, suddenly.  Her daughter had come to our club to sell her stamps and "stuff".  We were to use one of her stamps  to create a card...
I LOVE cats so I thought this would be a great one to use.  (I purchased quite a lot!)
I painted the boxes with iridescent pigment paints and used Score Tape and glitter around the edges.

Thank you all for checking out my blog.  I hope you will continue to leave comments and perhaps join to become a member of my site so you will always get to see my projects.  Thank you.

Till next time...

Stamp of the Month Progressive Challenge

Hi all.  I can't believe it is already March 1st.  Where has February gone?  I have started to get busy with my card making.  Today, I am doing the card for the Imagine That Progressive Challenge.  The name of the digi stamp of the month is called Kitty in Flowers.  I decided to do something different, so I used colored pencils and gamsol to color the image.  I used die cuts and designer paper to add more color to the card.  I am pleased with the way it turned out.  

This file can be yours for free if you participated in last month's challenge.  If you didn't, you can purchase this image at a discount for the entire month and get the free one next month.  It is called a progressive challenge because each month, if you participate in the challenge, you will get the next month's image for free.  This will continue as long as you participate in the challenge!  It is lots of fun and of course our Design Team will always be there to help out with our samples to inspire you.  Be sure to link your image at the challenge site by March 31!

Looking forward to seeing your entry in the challenge this month!
Please leave me a comment and let me know if you are playing
