On Your Special Day

Hi all, it’s time for another new release at Digistamps4Joy and boy are you ever going to love the new images that we have for you.

All of the DT got to play with a wonderfully whimsical image by Jen called To Haveand To Hold and wait till you see the stunning creations that my team mates have come up with. I decided that I wanted to do something with a little bit of colour so I chose purple and white to compliment this wonderful image.

I coloured the image with my Staedtler pencil crayons and oms. I added Star Dust stickles to her earring, necklace and bracelet. The DP and rhinestone swirls are by Forever in Time. The white dp (it has vines embossed on it) is called Vine White and is by Making Memories. I used my SU scallop punch for behind the sentiment. The sentiment is from Birds Cards. The ribbon and and purple gem brad are from my stash.
I hope that you will head on over to our Challenge Blog to check out all of the fabulous new creations and my team mates wonderful inspirations.

Celebrating Easter

Hi all…I know, it’s been a long time, but I am back again…at least for a little bit. We have had an illness in my family and so I have not been around my home or crafting supplies for the last little while. But enough about me and my life, I know that you are all here to hear about the challenge going on at Digistamps4Joy. If you haven’t been to our challenge blog recently, then I encourage you to head on over and see the fabulous creations that Team A made for the beginning of our challenge. Now it’s Team B’s turn to Wow you. I know, you’re thinking “Come on, what’s the theme for this time?”…well I’m getting there…it has been awhile and I want to enjoy my first posting lol. The theme this time is “Celebrating Easter”. We want to see how you celebrate Easter. For me it’s a little bit of religion and Easter Bunny. When my kids were little we had the Easter Bunny show up, but being raised in a Christian household myself, my kids always knew that Easter was celebrated because of the death and resurrection of Jesus….the Easter Bunny was just for fun.

When I saw the theme for this challenge I was pretty excited because it gave me an excuse to use an image that I got awhile back and have not been able to use yet. The image is called Faberge Egg and you can find it here. I wanted to do something a little different this time…no fancy folds lol. Instead I decided to use the shape of the image to make my card.

Now it’s your turn, just make a project that has to do with Easter and enter it in. Just remember, if you use a Digistamps4Joy Image not only will it make us really really happy, but you will get an entry into a special draw for $10 worth of DS4J images! How great is that?
