Window Card and a Digital Stamp


I set out this morning to make a window card, and accomplished that, but it took me about an hour and half! Having to stop every ten minutes and blow my nose from this cold, and then deciding what to put on the inside of the card, took me forever! But the end result is pleasing to me, so that's all that matters! I had cut a few things from my cricut for the inside, and wasn't happy with them, so I went with this quickutz die of a tree. The camera doesn't pick it up, but I chalked the sky blue, and green for the grass. The papers I used are from the Splendid pad by Authentique. And the sentiment stamp is an older Stampin Up one. I made myself a little template for punching the 'windows', and it worked out well.
The second card here I made with a digi stamp from Stampin Up. They call them stamp brushes. I looked on their website and found they have hundreds of stamp sets available for digital download. So, I wanted to try one out, and picked this doily background image. It was only 2 dollars. I wanted to see if their images worked without buying their digital software, and it does! I can resize, color, rotate, whatever with my software. So I am pleased with that as well. Now I have other digi stamps, but they must be colored in, and I usually do that with my watercolor pencils. I wanted something I didn't have to color myself. Sounds lazy I know! Anyway, just wanted to share with you my new digital work. Thanks for stopping by and reading my rambling! :)
