I Can Get You On the Naughty List

Hey everyone, it's time for another New Release day at Digistamps4Joy and we have a little sweetheart to show you today. As you all know, there is only 87 days left until Christmas...I know, bite my tongue and quit scaring you right? But as there is only 87 days left it is time to start thinking about all of those wonderful Christmas cards that we need to get done. And if you're like me the year has totally gotten away from you again and there is not a Christmas card to be found. Well Digistamps4Joy has a cure for least it has an image to help you get started. The image that my teammates and I got to work with this time is called Misteri Santa's Secret...and let me tell you, if she's Santa's secret Mrs. Clause better never find out!!! She is the sexiest little Santa's helper you ever did see. But don't take my word...have a look and see.
See what I mean...oooh you bad ol' Santa lol. I decided to make something a bit different. It's a Hot Apple Cider/Hot Chocolate holder. Me, I like the hot apple cider, but it can hold hot chocolate for those of you that prefer. I coloured her with my Crayola pencil crayons and oms and added some beautiful blue stickles to her hat and outfit. I coloured her big hoop earings with my gold glitter pen. The sentiment I got as a freebie from Create With TLC.
The paper is some that I had in my stash that was given to me so I'm not sure who it's by but the cs is by Bazzil. The ribbon and gifts are some that I picked up at my local dollar store...they're a light weight foam.

Now head on over to our blog and check out all of the rest of the gorgeous creations that have been released...and all of the fab projects my teammies have come up with.

Thanks for looking ~ Charlene

Midway Challenge Digistamps4Joy Colour Challenge with a Twist

Hi all, I'm back again with another fabulous challenge for you over at Digistamps4Joy. We are at the one week reminder time and so it is Team B's chance to show you what we've done. The challenge is a colour challenge with a here's the photo inspiration
And now the twist...we would like you to add some twine or ribbon to your project.

For this challenge I decided to use Margy's beautiful image Protea to make a Sympathy card for a friend of the family. I layered Margy's image onto the Lord Is My Shephard (will have to get back to you on where I got that image as I can't remember at this time lol.)
I coloured it with my Crayola pencil crayons and oms and then distressed it with Blue Bayou from SU. The lilies were a gift from my friend Tee (thanks Tee) and the Prisma roses, ribbon and rhinestones were from my stash. I gathered the ribbon with a small peach coloured brad.
The cs is by Bazzil and I embossed the peach with a border embossing plate from Cricut. The circle swirl is a die from Memory Box called Whimsy Circle. 

Now it's your turn to join in the fun. Just head on over to the Digistamps4Joy Challenge Blog for a list of the rules and what fabulous prizes we have...and don't forget to check out all of the incredible cards that my teammates have made for your viewing pleasure.

You Decorated My Life

Hi all, it’s that time again (and I know that you have all been waiting all week with bated breath)…time for the New Releases again at Digistamps4Joy, and Jen has really outdone herself once more.

This week my teammates and I had the pleasure of playing with Jen’s new image MisteriArtist. She was so much fun to work with….she really lets your imagination go :D
When I first saw her the first thing that went through my mind was Kenny Roger’s song “You Decorated My Life”. My husband and I danced one of our first waltz’s at our wedding to this song. So I thought…hmmmm….anniversary card? Then I found, in my stash, the most incredible paper that I had picked up on a bidding wars site. The colour of the dp is plum with these fabulous white glittery splashes on it…looks like someone took a brush with glitter paint on it and flung it on a canvas. The plum colour was dark enough I figured it would be o.k. for a guy card.
I started off with some freebie black and white dp that I got from Bearly Mine, layered on Margy’s Brushstroke Frame and then added Jen’s Misteri Artist. I coloured everything with my Crayola crayons and oms and then I fussy cut the whole thing out. I added blue ribbon with star shaped stick on’s on it and red ribbon on either side of it to the base. I then attached my images to the base with pop dots. The clear blue pearls on the frame I found in my stash. I outlined my sentiment with my red glitter pen.

Thanks for stopping in, now head on over to Digistamps4Joy’s Challenge Blog and check out all of the fabulous creations that my teammates made as well as all of the rest of the incredible images being released today.

Digistamps4Joy New Release for Sept. 15th

Hi all…yup, I’m back. I know, it’s been forever since I last posted anything. Unfortunately life had taken an unforeseen turn for me and I have not been able to do my crafting…and boy have I been missing it! But enough about me and more about what you are here for…Digistamps4Joy’s New Release! And what a release we have for you today, these new images are going to just blow your socks off. And this is a very special release as Jen Leeflang  has just finished drawing her 500th image for Digistamps4Joy!!! Congratulations Jen…not only is that a fabulous accomplishment but we sure have loved playing with all of your incredible images. I’m sure that I am not the only one that looks forward to seeing what you come up with for your next 500 J

So now that I’ve gotten you all hyped up, it’s time to show you the incredible image that I got to play with. Her name is Mysteri as a Scarecrow and she is just the cutest/sexiest scarecrow you ever did see.

 I decided to go with a Fall Themed Thank you card for some wonderful friends of my parents. The card is a sidestep card and you can find the instructions to it here. The cs for the base is by Bazzil and the dp is Shades of Autumn by Reminisce…this is a gorgeous double sided paper that has a pumpkin patch on one side and glorious fall coloured leaves on the other. I used the pumpkin patch for the step part of the card and the leaves side was cut with my Floral Ovals Nestibilities to display Misteri as a Scarecrow. I coloured her with my SU felts…except for her skin which was done with my Crayola Pencil crayons and oms. . I then sponged around her with my SU More Mustard ink.

 The cat on the bail of hay and the cornstalks behind him, as well as the fence were pictures on a sheet of dp called Apple Cider by BoBunny that I fussy cut out to add as my embellishments. The sentiment is one the I had in my stash as well as the little diamond shaped rhinestones on the Nestibilities frame. The pumpkins and vines were given to me a few years ago by my wonderful friend Marla…thanks so much Marla J

 Now that you’ve seen what I have done, head on over to Digistamps4Joy and check out all of the incredible creations that my teammates have come up with…and all of Jen’s new and fabulous images.

Thanks for looking ~ Charlene
