Good afternoon! I hope you all enjoyed your weekend,,,,,,it was the first full weekend my DH had off in months! Unfortunately, the weather didn't cooperate and we never got to Disney, thanks to a storm out in the Gulf of Mexico,,,,
but we finished up some holiday shopping on Saturday,,,,,,,,,and then we lazed around all day sunday and did NOTHING LOL. I didn't even get out of my pajamas on Sunday,,,,,,,,,
but it was a lovely, lazy weekend!
Today I have two cards,,,,,,,,,,,,and believe it or not, not a copic in sight LOL.
I have a new love in my life LOL, not that I'll leave my beloved copics, but i am having a lot of fun with digital paper to go along with my digi stamps! There's so much FREE out there!
Since I make cards and not 12x12 pages (mostly), it's a piece of cake to simply print out the papers on my regular color printer and cut them up for cards.
Shery K Designs is definitely someone you should check out! She has a ton of free digi stamps, free papers and very reasonably priced packages! I got the absolutely ADORABLE ladybug papers for FREE! It comes with ten sheets and it's really just too cute! I didn't even use them all here! So check her out at http://www.sherykdesigns.com/shop/
Now, on to the cards! The lady bug card is completely digital! I printed out the ladybug papers from Shery K designs and matted the lady bug (a precolored digi image) with my nesties,,,,,,,a bunch of coordinating buttons and I have an adorable fast and easy card for pennies! So cute!!!!!!!! I used my long rectangles straight edge and scalloped edge on the inside to frame the sentiment: What's Bugging You?
It could easily be a get well card as well (Caught a bug?) or an adorable children's card! Just too cute! Thanks Shery for all the gorgeous freebies you have in your shop, and I'll definitely be checking out her holiday mega-packs! for like 2- 3 bucks, you get 20 or more printable papers! Now that's a price I like for papers! How often do you spend 10 or 20 bucks for a paper stack when you know you'll only use half the sheets? And one is always your favorite and you're limited to two or three sheets of it? I can print out my favorites again and again,,,,,,,and for 2 bucks, if there's a few I don't use, I'm not worried about it! I can print only the ones I'll use!
This elegant wedding card (Mr&Mrs) is black cardstock for the base, and Shery's gorgeous free digi stamps. I printed out the digi stamps at a large size and then used it like background paper to cut my flourishes and lacy ovals out of,,,,,,,,,then I cut one of her gorgeous chandelier stamps out of a classic ovals large and constructed my center medallion. Some pearls, a computer generated sentiment and a double black and white bow, and I have a gorgeous wedding card for my stash,,,,,,,,easy peasy and it cost PENNIES!
Hope you enjoyesd, and I hope you go check out Shery K Designs and enjoy the digis you'll find there!
