Cheers to you!

This beautiful image is just one of the wonderful new releases over at DZ Doodles this week. Diane has been working her magic and the results are fantastic! You have to go and check out some of her work. There are elves, boxes, bows and of course, this new "Cheers to You".
For this card, I painted the image with Stampin' Up! reinkers and an aquapainter, then popped up one of the glasses for added dimension. Stickles add the sparkle and Crystal Effects add the glassy shine. I used a Fiskars border punch, spellbinders circle, scalloped circle and some grossgrain ribbon to complete the card.

Hop on over to DZ Doodles for your weekly Friday Freebie! This is a great way to build your digi collection, especially if you are new to Digi stamping.
Don't forget! You still have a couple of days left to enter the DZ Doodles color challenge. You could win 2 digi stamps of your choice. I hope to see you there!

I love reading your comments so let me know what you think!

Hannah at the Pond

It is time for a new challenge at The Pixie Cottage! Thank you to everyone who participated in our last challenge, I was blown away by all of the beautiful entries.
This week we have a great sketch for you to try and wonderful prizes to by won. I hope all of you will come over to the Pixie Blog and play along.
For my card, I used the Hannah at the Pond stamp by artist Sandra Hammer. Isn't she just beautiful!
After layering my MME dp and Gemstones cardstock, I water colored the image and sponged a sunset sky. I then used my Spellbinders Classic Frame die and popped it up to create a picture-in-a-frame look. I used Distress inks to ink the details and edges. Martha Stewart Pearls and diamond Stickles complete this card.
Here is this weeks sketch, I hope to see you there!
