Hi Oddies,

I made this tag/card for my mother, for Mother’s Day in May.  I love to make tags and shaped cards. 

Bath Mermaid all colored with the water medium the Tansai Gambi.  With the tail I added some Stickles for the frosted details so it looks like fish scales.

I used some soft patterned paper with the ribbed cardboard and added some shimmer powders to it. A shiny fishnet , two ship rudders (hope I say that OK – google translate don’t trust it LOL). Also included some pretty flowers and beautiful gems, I love sparkle things in my cards and projects.  And from a diecut Happy Mother’s Day , also with a little shine with the Stickles.


My mom loves here card , hope you like it to!
Hugs Christa

Hi everyone, welcome to our June Release Recap! This is the post where I share with you everything that has come out during the month, make bad joke and puns, and basically banter at you while showing off some super creative projects. Its pretty badass, I know.

I have had a brainstorm that I think you’ll enjoy but you have to follow the instructions at the bottom of the post to join in. 

First though, let’s get to the badassness I mentioned. This month we’ve had an assortment of new digis and new to digital digis, we’re going over the fuzzy goodness first.

Everyone who has seen, played with, or have a cat knows the expression you’ll recognize in the first two new digis, Cat Attention and Cat Pounce. You know the one, they spot something, go completely still and their pupils get HUGE. Hopefully, you personally aren’t the target of this look because if so, you’d better watch out!

You see it now, don’t you? Cats are crazy.

Next up is an image to take you to the lake while you are sweltering in the 100+ degree weather (help! I’m melting!). I was really surprised that I didn’t have this digi already, Innertube Tia seems like a go to digi I should have thought of a while ago. Are there any other obvious ones I’m missing? Let me know in the comments. Now though, check out these cool projects…

I’m still melting but the cards were totally cool.

With the next digi SET, yes, I said SET, I admit I might have gone a bit far. Maybe. Possibly. Probably. Don’t be intimidated Cactus Man’s glorious facial hair and 14 different included images, he is easy to make into anything you’d like with just a little layering.

I’m seriously in love with all the different themes that the team came up with to put Cactus Man, and lady, on. Smarties!

 

Now I get to the new to digital digis. These are sets or images that previously were only in physical clear stamp form but as I run out of stock I’ve been turning them into pixel form. June brought us 2 new ones, a set and an image. Firstly is a really highly requested set, Under the Sea Mae digi stamp SET, that includes all the images from the original set, 6 in total. Secondly is an image that I never thought got enough love, he was one of my favs, Acorn Fairy.

Aren’t they all sweet? Its kind of nostalgic but I enjoy seeing them live on in this new form.

Did you enjoy all the awesome projects and new digis? I sure did! This team is kickin the term off with the heat. Unlike the kind outside, that’s the non-fun kind.

 

Ok, are you ready for my brainstorm? These don’t always turn out for the best (lol!) but I think this time we’ve found a good one.

Would you like to join the team for next month’s Recap? Its a small question but what that means is you’ll get every new digi in July and have your projects featured during the month. If that sounds exciting to you then I need you to leave me a comment. Tell me that you want to join us an what your favorite new digi was from June. You can comment now thru July 3rd at which time I’ll pick a winner and we’ll announce it in our Community and by updating THIS POST.

As always we appreciate you helping us spread the word of this fun opportunity. If this goes well, we’ll make this a monthly thing so that is extra incentive to join in and bring those crafty friends!

Until next time!

Kristy

 

The winner for this month is KATE MEAD! Big thank you to everyone who commented for this first go, I think we’ll have to do it again.
