Birthday Blast!

Hey everyone! I am back from our annual trip to Cuba properly tanned and hating the snowy, cold Calgary weather.  It was a great trip where I even had the chance to try some new foods in the forms of turtle and water buffalo.  Both were outstanding!

It’s Thursday today so we have a new batch of inspiration for you at Digital Delights this week.  My image for you today is Birthday Pippin  paired with the Birthday Sentiments set.  I just think he is so cute!  I am using the precolored image but he is available uncolored as well.


Here’s my card today



I used my Hot off the Press 8×8 Birthday set that I have had for several years and paired it with some bling in my stash and cut out a flourish from a sizzix die.  A simple card but I think it is just adorable.

I hope you stop by the blog and check out the amazing projects the DT has for you today!

January-2013-badgeI am using the cute Barnaby Bee and the Love is in the Air Sentiments today.



The DP is from Scrapworks and was some I just had in my stash.  I added some red polka dot ribbon from my stash as well and my SEW EASY ink stitcher.  I also used my Spellbinders and Stampin Up dies.  I dressed up Barnaby with some stickles and the hearts are from my stash.  He was colored with my Copics.  I hope you like him and drop by the blog and see the rest of the new releases highlighted by the DT today!

Gingerbread Christmas

Hi everyone! I am late in getting this post up.  My days are just blending together as I prepare for the holidays.

We have some new inspiration pieces for you on the Digital Delights blog today.  Lots of wonderful projects for you to enjoy.  My card for you today is highlighting Gingerbread Slippy who is just the cutest character ever!!!



I am using the pre-colored image but he does come in black and white as well.  He is paired with the Gingerbread  Hugs Sentiment as well.  The DP is from my stash so I’m not sure who it is by and then I added some ribbon I received in a swap.  I didn’t want to make this too complicated because I didn’t want to distract from the image.  I hope you like it and don’t forget to swing by the blog and see what the other designers have for you today!  This is our last post until the New Year so that the team can spend time with their families over the holidays.

Merry Christmas from my house to yours!

Just a simple layered card today.  The DP is from The Christmas Stack by DCWV.  the white snowflakes were given to me in a Christmas swap as well as the white leaf.  The red showflake was cut using a sizzix die and the bling is from my stash.  I hope you enjoy this and don’t forget to stop by the blog to see what the rest of the DT has created for you.

Candy Cane Christmas

Hello everyone!

I am a little late in getting this post out to you.  It’s another digital inspiration day at Digital Delights today. Make sure you stop by to see all the great projects this week, using the wonderful images that Wendy has for you in the store.

Today I am highlighting the Candy Cane frames set.  I chose to use the already colored ones but you can buy the ones you can color yourself.

I paired it up with the Magical Winter Sentiments set as well.

Here you go


I used The Christmas Stack by DCWV and then just added a few things from my stash like bling, and ribbon.  I cut out the image with my spellbinders.  I love the precolored images because they are so easy to work with.  I can print out a bunch and then be able to mass produce cards.  I hope you enjoy the card.



A gift for you- A digital delights release

It’s a new release day at Digital Delights today and oh are these ever cute~!

Lots of great images to choose from for the holiday season as you get ready to make those Christmas cards!  This time around, I decided to change it up and I made this cute little tag using Nutcracker Kiddles.     He is available colored on non depending on your preference.  I also used the Magical Winter sentiments for this one.

The tag is just from Staples and I went over it with some of my Tim Holtz distress ink.  I used a little bit of DP from Echo Park from some previous projects and a couple of different dies–Stampin Up & Sizzix.  I also used my sizzix embossing folder.  The ribbon, button and pearls are all from my stash.  I hope you like it and don’t forget to stop by the blog for some more great inspiration using these fun new images.  You can also stop by the Delightful Challenges blog and get in on the latest challenge as well.
