DS4J challenge Embossing with Red

Our March challenge is up and running and it's all about EMBOSSING with MAIN COLOUR RED!
I used  my clouds dies but used it only to emboss the edges & not cut through. I shaded the white card stock then with blue which lifted out the edgings.

Hope you head over to DS4J in March and share your creations.

MAWTT challenge - SPORT

This week's challenge at Moving Along With The Times is to get SPORTY! And I had a giggle looking at my fellow DT's card because it seems GOLF is very popular!! I used my DS4J image, Golf Clubs to make the background and a self-made sentiment:
Now to find someone who actually plays golf!

Join us with your sporty images or any action activity!

WHOOP birthday!

We celebrated the birthday of a beautiful 5-year old girl yesterday and I made her this card:
I used the image "A big whoop" from Mo's Digital Pencil. I added some stars from the "Shapes" function in Microsoft Powerpoint. They were coloured with yellow and then covered with gold stickles.
All colouring done with Spectrum Noirs.
I used the sketch from Happy Little Stampers as inspiration:
Hope you are all having a blessed Sunday.

God bless

DS4J release Travel Club

Hi everyone

With the hectic way this year has started I feel like I need to get away !!  My one sister is going on holiday to France (SO JEALOUS) and the other sister is planning on moving to Canada!!  So they'll be putting a lot of miles on the clock this year!  This inspired me to create the new Travel Club set for Digistamps4Joy!
I used Freshly Made Sketches layout:
Background paper : Webster's Pages "Family Traditions"

The set comes with a suitcase, a hat case and some sentiments:

Take care everyone and visit DS4J to see Margy's new release and what's up with our current challenge!

Love
Riette
