Guest Designer for Digi Kitty Stamps

I am honoured to have been invited by Kristal of Digi Kitty Stamps to be their first Guest Designer.  They are only a new company but already have a great selection of images....and run a weekly challenge which you can check out here.

This weeks challenge is to use punches, or Die Cuts on your card!  I love using punches and am slowly trying to add to my collection - I sold some of my older stamps that I no longer use and used the money to invest in some Nestibilities...although this one is not one of them, it is part of a RAK from the lovely Sabrina (aka okimom2girlz)  - thank you Sabrina - it worked perfectly here!


I have only recently started using digi's and am amazed at how versitile they are - Digi Kitty Stamps has some helpful tips on their site - so many of us are unsure, I was pleasantly surprised to find out you can emboss digi's - if that is news to you, click here and find out how, along with other useful hints!

I coloured this cute giraffe with chalks and then cut him out and popped him upon dimensionals, onto the Nestie that already been stamped and lightly coloured.

A square of CS with the edges sponged has been added to the centre of the card,  I then added the ribbon, which I attached to some CS that had been sponged and run through a chipboard buckle that was sponged with distressing ink and attached with double sided tape and a brad.  The Nestibilitie was also popped up on dimensionals and centered onto this square!  You can get an idea of the dimension here!


The sentiment has been computer generated and has been sponged and backed with black CS.  I finished off with black gems attached to the corners of the square panel!

So there you have it - why don't you pop across to Digi Kitty Stamps check out their images and the challenge!!  I would love to see you over there this week - you know I will be watching!!

I would like to thank Kristal for the invitation to be a Guest Designer, I am so honoured and have thoroughly loved the opportunity to join in this week!  Thank you Kristal and the Design Team for having me - I can't wait to see what you all do!!

Thank you too, for coming by and for the lovely comments you leave me - I love it when you visit - it always brings a smile to my face!!  I hope you are all having a good day and get the opportunity to INDULGE yourself in this fabulous passion of ours!  God bless you!
