I am very excited today!
It's digi release day over @ Clear Dollar Stamp's - Clearly iStamp blog and....a new "Fall Fun" challenge over @ Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings!
The most exciting part...I get to show you some of the projects that I have been working on the last couple of weeks and they are all done with my illustrations! :)
The first card is done with my "Autumn Blessings" pre-colored digi set and my "True-ly Fall" digital paper stack.
The cardstock is Brilliant White (for printing my image and papers) and Bazzil Clover Leaf Dotted Swiss from Discount Card Stock.
The "Autumn Blessings" images have been such a hit that I thought I would offer up a colored version. These would be a quick and fun way to create multiple cards, place setting cards, disposable napkin rings etc.
I did both bright and softer muted pumpkins, with and without hash-marks for distressing.
I did a couple of fall paper packs.
The first is True-ly Fall which is the one I used for the card above. It is just $4.50 and comes in either 12"x12" or 81/2"x11" formats.
The second paper set is called "True-ly Autumn" and also is also just $4.50 and available in both 12"x12" and 81/2"x11" formats.
It works great with the softer colored pumpkins in the "Autumn Blessing" set!
You might have seen my "Autumn Blessings" pumpkin before because Clear Dollar Stamps has it in both clear stamp, and line art digi also.
If you would prefer to color your own, this set would be your ticket! It is just $2.50 for instant download!
The next cards I have to share with you are done with my new "Toasty Bears" digi set.
I created my samples in a couple of different ways to show you the versatility of digis.
The first card was done kind of the "normal" way. I printed out the image, the sentiment, and the papers separately on Discount Card Stock's - Brilliant White, then cut and layered them.
If you have lots of Christmas cards to make, this next method might just be the way to go!
I layered my papers, images, and sentiments in Photo Shop. I then tweaked it by adding "Robert & Trudy are...", drew in some border lines (optional) then printed out the entire card front in one piece. You can size them so you can get 4 card fronts per sheet of cardstock or...you can print them out with 2 images side by side at the bottom of a page set to horizontal orientation, cut them apart, score, and you are done!!!
You never have to worry about running out of Christmas cards. Just save your page set up and if you need more....just print! ;)
I do need to mention that for some reason, my printer made the sky come out a different color of blue than the original colors (I didn't even notice until just now when I added the promo picture of the set below) but, it still looks good if I say so myself! :)
This is what the "Toasty Bears" digi set looks like.
It is just $4.00 for instant download.
The girls on the Clear Dollar Stamp design team liked the polar bears so much that it was suggested it would be a great image for brown bears too. Soooo...I went back to my coloring program and did them in brown also. Of course I had to add some trees and some S'more fixin's because after all...we all know what bears do in the wood right?
THEY MAKE S"MORES!!!! :)
This set is called "S'mores Bears" and is just $3.00 for instant download.
This one doesn't come with the line art to color yourself but the "Toasty Bears" set does. ;)
I hope you have enjoyed all of my cards as much as I enjoyed coloring the images for you!
I want to invite you to head on over to the Clearly iStamp blog and see the other new digi releases plus other projects created with mine.
Don't forget to come back when you are done to check out the new "Fall Fun" challenge over @ Really reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings. You could join in on the fun and get a chance to win one of two $10.00 gift certificates for RRR products!
Thanks for hangin' in there on my long long post! :)
