DZ doodles digital images

Wow, I'm so impressed with the images from DZdoodles. And how fun to colour. Check out the hundreds of images they have for purchase. These images are of Thelma and I coloured her with copics. I then used some of SU! Pink Flamingo DP and brightened her up some more. The sentiments were rub-ons from SU! Thanks for looking and have a great stampin' day.

A day at the beach

Thought I better get a MDS page done for my son since I had done one of my daughter. I went with a "grafitti" look. Again in black and white. Hope you like it. TFL.

Yet another MDS.....I'm hooked!!

I'm so glad I revisited MDS! I just love creating pages of my guys and now that I have been playing around with some of the cool features i.e. vintage overlays, using photos as background paper etc. I can't seem to stop making page after page. I am going to print them as I make them and create a personal journey album for each child. I can see myself making some for the grandparents for xmas. How fun. Thanks for looking. Go to MDS and try out some of the effects. You'll be surprised at how addictive it will get.

MDS re-visited

After seeing the latest MDS creation on Jan Tinklenberg's blog I knew I had to try my hand at using a photo as a background paper. It was so easy thanks to her directions. I chose a 5X7 landscape layout and clicked on background papers, chose a photo.Then I clicked again on background papers and chose one of any number of DP designs and added it as a layer. I then readjusted the opacity to about 70% or so to show the picture through the paper. Really cool effect. You can see the faint image of my son running in his baseball uniform. The next page is of my daughter at one of the track meets. I had fun adding the sentiment and embellishments to this page. Hope you like them. Happy digital scrapping.

Don't throw out anything old!!

I came across these old vintage like dutch postcards and knew I had to use this image for my mom's birthday card. This will remind her of her Tante Nora who played such an important and crucial role in her life. She was a saint. And one thing that I remember is that she was always finding humour in everything. Sometimes you wish some people you meet in your life could always be there forever. She truly was a beautiful person inside and out. Anyways, my mom will love it. No stamping on this one. Just layering and glueing. Pretty simple really but I love how it turned out. Sometimes simple is just as elegant as complex. Thanks for looking.

A Whiff of Mother's Day ....

Well, here is my mother's day card, obviously late but never-the-less on its way tomorrow. I had coloured this image awhile ago with my copics and decided to cut it out and pop it up with dimensionals. The sentiment is digital from and the yellow paper is digital paper from Lauren Meader's store . The small printed paper is also from Lauren's store. I dressed up the inside with images and a sentiment from SU! and coloured the square stamped image with coordinating colours to match the colours from the front of the card. Thanks for looking and happy stamping.

Digital stamp from Karen's Doodles

Wow I love how this little girl colours up. This image is from This is a nice springy card I made for a friend. I used some crystal effects on the bouquet to make it stand out some more. I coloured her with copic markers and used my oval nestabilities to put her on. Thanks for looking.

Happy stamping.
