Monthly Reveal

It's that time again at D2D...monthly reveal day. Faith has come out with a few new fall & winter images that I am sure you will just LOVE. Plus, some of the gals will be 'revisting' some her older fall & winter images as well.

I decided to use 2 of her new images. For my 1st image, I used "Reach for the Stars Snowman" and created a tag.  I'm always so focused on creating cards, that I don't think about making tags for gifts. And I thought this image would be perfect for that purpose. And I am also always doing my images on white cardstock and I have seen so many people do the images on kraft paper. So, I printed my image on the kraft cardstock, colored the stars w/my atyou Spica markers for some shimmer. Then my Memento markers were used to colors the scarf and nose. A little Stickles for the snow, a piece of green cardstock folded in half, punched a hole and ran my ribbon thru and TA DA!! Easy peasy : )

For my 2nd image I used "Fall Mailbox". Fall is my FAVORITE time of year with all the changing colors & cooler weather. Again I wanted to keep it simple but yet use alot of those wonderful colors we associate with fall. I also used a new Spellbinder die that I recently purchased and absolutely LOVE it!

Well, I hope you have a chance to check out the other DT creations as well! They have some awesome creations and inspiration for you all.
Thanks so much for blog hoppin' with D2D! Remember, all New Release Digital Stamps will be on SALE until August 23. Details HERE.

Fish tales

My father-in-laws birthday is coming up soon, so I created this card w/him in mind. He really likes to fish, so I used an image from Prairie Fairy Stamps called "Fisherman Lewis".

I LOVE that he comes both colored and uncolored.  It saves alot of time when trying to do cards from time to time. I just added some Glossy Accents on his glasses and some 'shimmer' to the water w/my Gelly Roll Clear Star pen. I wanted to make it look like he 'flipped' the line out onto the card.  So, I strung twine from the bottom of the pic, up and back around and finished it off with some actual spinning lures.

I forgot to take a pic of the inside, but I wrote ~ Tell all the fish tales you want, it's your special day. I really hope he likes it  : )
