I had seen some of Mo's work around for a long time and always admired it but I had no idea how to use digi stamps and so I never pursued my fascination with her designs. As luck would have it, I won a gift certificate to Mo's shop on a blog hop. Well, I wasn't about to let that opportunity get away so I got my certificate code and went shopping. She had so many wonderful designs, it took me 3 hours to decide what I wanted. And I couldn't decide on just one either, even though my certificate was only good for $5. I bought 3 designs and after my coupon was deducted, I think I owed $4. I just couldn't help myself! I really, really LOVE her digis! And now some of them are available in rubber too! Oh, happy day! You can buy them here.
Here is little wonder with her hummingbird friend. Isn't she just the cutest thing? The first one I colored is about half again the size of this one and that's one of the wonderful things about digis... you can print them out any size you want whereas with rubber, you typically get only one size. Just for grins, I'll show you the first card too. It's very plain and simple because I didn't want anything to detract from the adorable image. Here it is... same stamp but much larger (it's hard to tell from the pics) and I used different colors. I think I like the pink and blue palette a little better but I like the overall design of the twisted easel card. Maybe I'll remake it with a blue and pink palette! I just never tire of coloring these gorgeous images. They're so much fun! The inside sentiment simply says "Happy Birthday".
Click on the images to enlarge them and you can see the detail if you like. So which one do you like better?
I'd love to hear your candid opinions. I'm not going to list all the details again because most of the supply list is just solid-colored card stock but the dp on both cards is from Basic Grey's Lime Rickey collection. I love the colors and retro feel of those papers! They remind me of the 70s. Yes, I was there and yes, I do remember... well, sort of! LOL! The paper flower on the sentiment tag on the easel card as well as the heart pin, buttons and twine were sent to me in a cute little treasure chest of goodies from my sweet crafty friend, Kay. How about that... other than the orange daisy, there are no flowers and no bling on either one of these! Can you believe it?
I entered the top card in Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge #85 - Sketch
Okay, that's it for today, girls and boys. I'll be back tomorrow with another one. Have a blessed Sunday and a great week next week! Until next time....
