Hiya Friends!! Can you believe it's officially fall already? Wow--I feel like I never got to say goodbye to summer, it just flew by it seems. And the weather here in VA got cool & fall-like REALLY fast--hope that doesn't mean winter will be horrible, I HATE the cold. Still holding onto my dream of moving to South Carolina one day (sighhhhh)! But I do like having my windows open everyday & filling the house w/ fresh air (most of my neighbors still have their AC's on--crazy huh?)! Thinking about the upcoming holidays already makes me feel rushed, lol--never enough time to get it all done ya know! I was in JoAnn's the other day & they already have a small section filled w/ Valentine's Day stuff--ummm....let me get thru Xmas first, LOL! Crazy how retail works---I think it's just a massive scheme to make us all crazy mad with stress me thinks, hee hee! Anywho, let's get on with the projects for today cuz' I've got 2 to share w/ ya & lots of info so make sure & make it all the way down to the bottom!
NEW Pink Cat Studio Digi Store
I’m excited to announce that Pink Cat Studio is going digital! Today Melissa is opening an online digital stamp store with a great selection of brand new Halloween and Christmas designs. So now PCS will have two stores, one for rubber stamps and one for digital stamps. You can check out the new store HERE!
**I print my digi images directly onto my Gina K Luxury cs 120 lb weight w/ my Epson InkJet printer! And then color w/ Copics--no smears or bleeding!!
I'll be sharing a project using these fabulous new digi stamps everyday this week for ya so make sure & stop by everyday, 'kay!! But today I wanted to share this fabulously fun "Itty Betty-Yummy Frogs" card I made! Isn't she a cutie with her lil' witches brew & froggies trying to get away, hee hee! My papers are from some of last year's stash (i'll check later today for ya who they're by). I added some diamond glaze to the frog's eyes & cauldron and stickles on the fire, steam & brew! I punched some stars out & ran them thru my Cuttlebug so they have a bumpy, bubbly texture and then I added fun glitterdots to the centers! The sentiment is from PTI's "Halloween Tags" set and the cobwebs were done w/ my Martha Stewart punch!
Now make sure & hop over to the Pink Cat Studio Digi Store HERE & the Store Blog HERE to see all the fabulous new digi stamps & projects done w/ them--they're boo-tiful!! Lot's of fab Halloween, Christmas & Everyday digi stamps for ya to delight in!!
Try It Out Tuesday #37
And since today is Tuesday that means it's another "Try It Out Tuesday" for Susana's Custom Art & Card Design store! I challenged the DT this week to use Flower Soft on their cards/projects which is always fun! I used one of the fabulous Christmas Tree stamps by Lockhart Stamp Co. "Snow Tree w/ Birds", colored it with Copics & then added Polar White Flower Soft to it for a pretty, wintery snow feel!
The papers are new from Basic Grey's "Eskimo Kisses" and I LOVE them--they pair up fab with PTI's cs as well (aqua mist, sweet blush, new leaf)! The layout is this week's Mojo Monday Sketch #105 which was so fun to do! The sentiment is from PTI as well & then I used Kaiser pearls (in rose) and Bella Baubles (oyster) to line the bottom & corners! The double bow was done w/ my Bow Easy--gosh how I love that thing!
Here's a close-up of the image---Polar White Flower Soft on the tree and around the oval nestability frame! The berries are made w/ red Liquid Pearls and silver Stickles on the star! The Polar White FS is a little bit different in texture than the regular flower soft, a lil' thicker & more shimmery--so very pretty IRL!
Now make sure and stop by the store blog "Follow Your Heart" to see the rest of the DT's fab projects today!
