Abby And Walter

My card today is using one of the new digital stamps by Michelle Perke at SparkleN Sprinkle.  If you are new to digital stamps you might feel a little intimidated by them but the more you play with these wonderful images you realize that they provide you with great flexibility.  They can be re-sized and formatted to meet the needs of your card layout.

The image on my card is Abby and Walters Birthday Wishes,  I printed it in black on white cardstock.  After coloring, I simply used a Spellbinders’ Classic Square Die to cut it out, used a glue pen to add Sunny Daze Glitter to a few areas and added it to the card on top of a Cheery Lynn square doily.  I resized the sentiment and cut it out with a Spellbinder die.  I added it to the card with a bow and a blue jewel swirl to look like a balloon flying across the top.  Most of the cardstock I used is from Basic Grey - the light pink cardstock is Starry Night, the dark pink is Basil, and the polka dot is McKinley. 

Head on over to the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog for details on using this digital. 

Just a reminder that the SNS August Sketch Challenge ends on Friday.  Enter your card for a chance to win a free stamp set.  Also, mark those calendars for Sept. 20-21 so you can join us for our next blog hop, Ghosts & Goblins Fall Frolic!
