Hi all! Today I'm Sharing a very simple card that I have made. The stamp is Kididdles In Stitches flower 1 from www.valsdigitaldesigns.com I colored the image with prisma pencils and cut it out so it would fit the front of the card, and then distressed the edges. The words I did on the computer cut them out and also distressed the edges of them. The white card stock I used is from Staples. Thanks for looking Val

Love You Mom

Hi All! I didn't get a picture taken of the card I was going to post for a different weekend freebie ,but I do have some of this cute new stamp I've been working with. The weekend freebie digital stamp from www.valsdigitaldesigns.com Is Kididdles In Stitches Flower 1. I absolutely love how my card turned out! I love soft colors so I colored the image with prisma pencils in soft green, blue, pink and yellow. To print the image on my paper I used Microsoft word I inserted the first flower and then moved it over and part way down the page resized it and then copy and pasted twice so they were side by side. I then printed it off and cut it to fit the card leaving room at the top for my sentiment. The Love You Mom I created on my computer and also  printed that off , I then cut them out and glued to a scrap of the gingham paper and the cut them out leaving a border of gingham around each word. The white card stock is from Staple's and the gingham is from Nitwit Collections. If you download the weekend freebie and posted what you made on your blog  please post a comment in the comment box below with you blog address, I would love to see what you have made!   Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!  Val

Dream Create Imagine

Hi All! For my card today I used our Kididdles In Stitches Flower 1 digital stamp from www.valsdigitaldesigns.com The base of the card is Soft Suede cardstock from Stampin'Up, the pattern paper was in my stash which I have distressed the edges of. I colored the image with prisma pencils, cut it out and glued to the front of my card. The words I typed on my computer and then printed off on card stock cut them out, distressed the edges and also sponged around them with soft suede ink. I've been quite busy lately in my studio making cards and putting together mini albums and decided it's time to make some videos of what I've been up to. It's been a long time since I made a video so my Grandson is coming to help me set things up. My husband has already hung the tripod from the ceiling over my desk  and bought me a new camera so I am very excited to get started! Thanks for stopping by! Val
