Christmas Carolers for the July "Anything Goes" Facebook Challenge on Digi Doodles Studio Facebook Page

For this month's challenge I selected Christmas Carolers for my DT inspiration card. I just love Christmas and was excited to make a card with this adorable stamp.

The monthly challenge is over on the Digi Doodles Facebook page.  The monthly challenge is always “Anything Goes". Such fun! I just love Digi Doodles Studio stamps. The images are all so adorable. 

I created a 5x6 card for this stamp. I used paper from my stash. I thought the Christmas tree was just perfect for the background. I colored this image with Copics:. I wanted to use pink for the girl. I thought it would be fun to use nontraditional colors.

Party Pups for I Love Promarkers Challenge #413

I am a guest designer for the I Love Promarkers Challenge Blog. Which is such fun! The theme this challenge is to use embellishments. The challenge is #413. 

 I selected Party Pups by Digi Doodle Studios for this card. I just love Digi Doodles Studio stamps. The images are always just so adorable.

 For this card I created a 6x6 card. I used birthday paper from the Anna Griffin paper collection Birthday Bundle. I used the paper as inspiration for my colors.

I did die cut three balloons and a gift box for this card. I used a small bow on the balloons and on the gift box as accents. I also added the Happy Birthday sentiment and three enamel dots to the card. 

I used the following colors:

  • Box - Rose Pink, Blossom, Pastel Green, and Duck Egg
  • Ribbon Pastel Green and Duck Egg
  • Balloons - Rose Pink, Blossom, Cool Aqua, Pastel Blue, and China Blue
  • Dogs - Praline, Cinnamon, and Cocoa. I used different intensities for each dog. For the nose I used Warm Grey and for the tongue Rose Pink
  • I used Buttercup as the background

A fun trifold card using Beach Gnome, Dad & Kid Gnome and Fourth of July Gnome from KLM Digital Designs

I decided to create a fun trifild card for my husband for Father's Day. I love creating a story with a trifold card, so I just knew that these three stamps would be perfect: Beach Gnome, Dad & Kid Gnome, and Fourth of July Gnome from KLM Digital Designs.

I used paper from my stash and colored the images with my hodgepodge of Spectrum Noir markers. I love using digi images. You can print them any size that you like. These are printed at 3 inches each. I also love mixing and matching my images for a fun card. 

Tea Time

I love this image. It is Tea Time by Digi Doodles Studio. I created this card for my mother. She and I just love tea. I thought she would certainly enjoy this sweet card.

 I created a 6x6 card. I used paper from my stash, which was gifted to me, and I just love! The pretty pinks and yellow in the pack inspired my section of markers. I die cut 2 ovals to place tea party image on. I think it just makes the girls pop! I added lace and flowers to the card too. I typed up the sentiment on my computer and printed. I love the flexibility of adding my own sentiments. I used a stencil and inked dots on the sentiment. It adds a nice touch.


I used the following copic:

  • Hair - E79, E74, E71, and E70. I made one of the girls a bit more brunette
  • Skin - E000, E01, E02, E11, and R30 for the rouge
  • Pink shirt and pink flowers - RV10, RV11, RV13, and RV14
  • Blue trousers and blue flowers- B12, B14, B16, and B28
  • Yellow shirts and yellow flowers -Y00, Y02, Y06, and Y15
  • Teapot and teacups - V000 and V09
