Valentines Go Digital
A few weeks ago I saw a call for design team members on Splitcoast Stampers. Since I typically have plenty of work to do I haven't even considered submitting for any teams recently but this company sounded very interesting so I decided to check out the opportunity. I heard from Worldwide Printable Stamps yesterday, hoping for good news, but unfortunately the owners, for personal reasons, need to step back from their work for awhile. (No news on whether or not I was being considered...I'll just pretend I was! hee hee) Along with the email, they attached a few files containing their amazing digital only images! How cool is that? Stamp images that are only offered in a digital format - I love it! And I love working with their images, they're really unique and easy to work with. For this card, I simply printed out a set of their images, colored my selection with Copics and created a card! This adorable image above was cut out (the bottom of the heart had some lovely swirls that I cut off...just too detailed to cut around) and attached to my card with dimensional tape. I did stamp the "loved" sentiment on the ribbon. The other elements are from Stampin' Up! And how about that fancy sewing with silver thread! I finally, finally got a new sewing machine (for Christmas) and I'm in my glory! You can visit one of the owner's blogs, Sonia, on her blog. She has wonderful goodies to see and you can purchase any of their existing images on the Worldwide Printable Stamps site. Enjoy!
