Exciting News and Blog Candy!!!

For Inky Impressions Challenge, scroll down... you might also find some candy :)

I am over the top excited to be posting today as GDT for The Digi Bells! Yaaahoooooo!!! For the next few months, I have the privilege of creating alongside the FABULOUS team of creative geniuses AND using Elisabeth Bell's oh-so-wonderful digi's!! I think I might still be dreaming...

I decided to use the digi, Patti's Kisses. I never get tired of seeing her lol! She's just sooooo sweet :)


Now that I'm posting, I see that she's kinda floating in the clouds as I've forgotten to ground her lol. Oops... let's just say she's so happy that she's floating :)

She's colored with copics, of course... Skin - E000 E01 E11; Hair - YR24 Y26 Y23 E50; Clothes - BG18 BG15 BG13 BG11 BG10 BG000, Bear - E37 E34 E33 E31 R20. Stardust Stickles accents.


The base of my card is 5"x7" by The Paper Studio. The base layer is embossed with Polka Dot Page embossing folder. The gorgeous die cuts are Spellbinders Timeless Rectangles.


I've used Tumbled Glass Distress Ink Pad around the image and a pretty blue ribbon to give this card a little pop of color. I've used my favorite lace and adhesive backed pearls to finish.

Next is a very RARE type of card from me. I just don't seem to know what to do with them. Inky Impressions challenge theme this week is Masculine. I'm not sure how masculine this actually is, but there's a boy on it lol!


He is a little cutie! This is Christopher with Heart. You can find him HERE.
I used copics to color him in: Skin - E000 E00 E11; Hair - YR24 Y23 E25; Heart - RV34 RV32 RV11 RV10 RV00 plus RV04 RV02; Cap - G28 G24 G21 B06 B000 B00 scratched for texture; Pants - E37 E33 E31 E30; Soles of shoes - C9 C7 C5.



"My Teacher Rules" and the li'l apple are cut files from the Silhouette Online Store. I used copics to color in very simply.

Wow... two cards without any patterned paper hee hee. Am I going CAS? :)

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
