Delightful Thursday with Digital Delights

It's Delightful Thursday again at Digital Delights!!!  

And have you purchased all your images for your Valentine...
If not make sure you check the New Releases - they are all just
adorable... 

Now for my inspirations card this week.  I really love the way this card turned out.  And what fun I had coloring all the wonderful hearts on this image.
Here are the wonderful images I used for my card!
Tree of Love
Love is in the Air Sentiment Set
I colored the "Tree of Love" with Copics and then matted on 2 pieces of designer paper.  I added some "Starburst Stickles" to the hearts and a creme doily under the mats.  Corner dies were added to bring out the green in the designer papers. On the image itself, I added a red bow with a heart charm.  Two red heart gems were added to the corner dies and I was finished.

"Teal or Turquoise" with Eureka Stamps

Hi all my "Sassy" friends out there in blog land...Well, it's a new week and that means it's time for Challenge #24 at the Eureka Stamps Challenges!
The theme for this week's Challenge is:
"Use Teal or Turquoise"

And of course, we have enjoyed have our wonderful Guest Designer with us for the month of January.  Since it is the last Challenge of the Month for us we want to tell Diane Ahlers of "Diane's Country Cards and Crafts" how wonderful it has been to have her with us this month.  We have enjoyed all of her wonderful creations.

I chose to use a "Rose Border" and a sentiment "I am the Vine" from Eureka Stamps.  I colored the rose border in different shades of Copics and matted the image on dark and medium teal card stock.  My card base is teal along with a layer of different shades of teal striped designer paper.  I added some "Starburst" stickles to the roses in the border and some teal small rosettes with a die cut leaf vine.

 We have a wonderful Sponsor with us this week:

My inspirational card for the challenge this week is a tad simple.  But, I knew I wanted to use this image because when I first saw it I fell in love with it.  However, if you are a follower of mine you know we are packing and moving this week.  Well, some of my things are packed and some are not, so I had to work with the things still left out. 
So I made a simple Thank You card.  My image is colored with Copics and for some bling I added "Stardust" Stickles to the ground and flower. I cut my image out and matted it on Spellbinders Dies.  I added a pink gingham bow and some little cute flower buttons and was done.
Kinda cute, huh....I did not take a picture of the inside this time but it is the same as the front with just the personal message area.

"Pastel Colors" with QKR Stampede


Hi there my friends - time for a new Challenge at QKR Stampede!

And wow, we had some wonderful creations last week and we want to
thank everyone who shared their cards with us.

Our Theme this week is "Pastel Colors"

We also are fortunate to have Darlene Pavlick of Dars Crafty Creations
joining us this month as our January Guest Designer! As this is the last
Challenge at QKR for the month we are sorry to say this will be
Darlene's last post with us and I want to say a big thank you to her
for showcasing her wonderful creations with us this month.

Be sure to stop by the QKR Stampede Challenge Blog to see
 what Darlene and our wonderful Designers came up with this week.

I did a simple pastel card this week.  We have sold our home and have been very busy getting rid of things that we seem to have accumulated during the 16 years in our home.  Boy where does the time go and how do we seem to collect so much stuff.....lol  
 I started my card this time with a smaller card base.  I had a package of these cards that I bought when I first started card making over a year ago.  I colored my image with Copics and inked the edges with Memento "Cantaloupe" Ink.  When I went to print this image - to my surprise my ink cartridge ran out and the sentiment was very light.  I could not believe it...Sooo, what's a girl to do but get out her C3 Copic and fill it in.  
I used a Spellbinders Die to cut the image out as well as the designer papers. I added some corner dies with pink buttons and a pink bow with a cute small blue/pink flower button. 
The inside is much like the front with some blue/creme felt hearts and added button.  Then I added the personal message area. 
My Card Recipe:

Sentiment - "Be My Valentine" Digi #14513 - QKR Stampede Stamps
Corner Dies - "Shapeology Corner Die Set" - Whimsy Stamps

I hope you will play along with our Challenge this week over at QKR Stampede Challenges. We would love to have you join us.
Also if you would like to join us as a Monthly Guest Designer please add GDT after your name and I will be in touch with you. Thanks for stopping by today and I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

"Delightful Thursday" with Digital Delights

Hi Everyone!!!  It's Delightful Thursday at Digital Delights and wow, have the Digital DT's 
made some wonderful projects for you this week!
I am going to show you a winter card today.  I had a request to make one more snowman card and what better image to use than the little "Snowie Topper"!  
Here is the set if you wish to purchase it....
 Click link to buy
 Snowy set (colored)
 Snowie Set
Garlands and Gifts set (colored)
Garlands and Gifts
 I framed my image with a "Snowflake Frame" colored with Copics.  I added a large laser cut wooden snowflake painted white, shaded with Memento Ink in "Summer Sky" and then glittered up.  My eyelet lace has a blue ribbon running through it as well as snowflakes that are actually buttons and blue gems.  I used some white crinkled seam binding for my bow and added some winter silver bells with blue and white bakers twine.  I also added a small tag with the "Warm Wishes" sentiment and a smaller snowflake.  I added the corner die with more glitter and some stick pins and was finished with the front of my card. 
As I have said before my picture taking is not very good but I just wanted you to see that the inside shows "Snowie" on ice skates and I added some bow flourishes with glitter.

I am entering my card in the following Challenges:

"Tent Card Tutorial" QKR Stampede


Hi everyone.....Today is Technique & Tutorial Day here at 

Sassy Raggedy here with you to show you my version of a
"Tent Card"

Before I start with the tutorial let me tell what image I am 

As you can now see, this is a different version of a tent card. I have a very crafty friend, Kim, who is constantly finding different cards and we try to change them up a little. Not a lot - just enough to give them our touch! This is one of those cards.... So, let's get started...

First, how about a quick photo of part of the supplies!  Now, overlook my prescription bottle in 
the picture - those are nerve pills!!!
I wanted you to be able to see the blank white card base in the shape of the tent card.  My image
is already colored and cut with a Spellbinders mat as is the sentiment.

Tent Card Tutorial

Step 1:  Start with a card base of 6" x 12".  Score in the middle using your Scor-Pal at the 6 inch mark.  Then score at the 1 1/2" mark from each end.  Using your bone folder tool fold and press your folds.  Set your white card base aside.

Step 2:  With your 2nd color of either designer paper or card stock (red in my case) you want to cut 4 pieces measuring 4 1/4 " x 5 3/4" each and set aside.  Now cut 4 pieces measuring 1 1/4" x 5 3/4" each and set those aside. 
Step 3:  I used 3 layers on my card, however, if you only want to use 2 layers then you are ready to go on to Step 4.  For the 3rd layer - cut 4 pieces measuring 4" x 5 1/2" each.  Then cut 4 pieces measuring 1" x 5 1/2" each.  Set all of these aside.  
Now you are ready to assemble your card.  This is mainly up to you - but I am going to give you
instructions as to how I did mine....
Step 4:  Using whatever adhesive you normally would use go ahead and adhere your layers to your card base. TIP:  You will notice that after you adhere your layers to your card base the card will then meet in the middle on it's own.  

Step 5:  You should have your image colored and cut by this time. I used a Spellbinders Die, Label Seventeen to mat and cut my image.  I also colored it using Copics.  

Step 6:  Adhere ribbon or another embellishment to the edge of your card.  You can use anything you would like.  Next, I tie my bows and tied the sentiment to the bows using red and white bakers twine.  Then, adhere your image and mat to the card along with any final embellishments.  

And there you have it - easy peasy.......

I am entering my card in the following Challenges:
I want to thank everyone for stopping by today to see what we are showcasing.

 showcasing today.  You can also stop by her wonderful blog Paper Crazy Lady

You can see Julie's wonderful creation and all the design team's cards over at Love to Create Challenges.

 We have two wonderful Sponsors with us this week:



I am showcasing a design by Kathryne of "Stamp Art Design" called "Stitched with Love". 
What an adorable image.  I love this little framed heart garden...I used Copics to color the image and added some "Stardust" Stickles to the hearts.  I then cut some small coral-pink sheer ribbon and tied a knot in them for just a little more depth.  My 3 favorite colors are of course red, green, and gold with just a tad of pink thrown in....lol   
And again excuse my photo taking abilities.....I die-cut a green doily and added a heart I cut from red felt with a small antique button. Next I added a handmade bow from the sheer ribbon along with a beautiful heart charm on a chain.  If you look close you can see where I hand stitched with green floss a straight stitch around the edges of my card.  I finished off the front of my card with gold corner dies and red gems. 
On the inside I cut a 3/4 heart in green and added another hand cut red felt heart with antique button. I then added a sentiment, "I want to be your Valentine!".  The personal message area is cut with a circle Spellbinders die and matted on a heart circle die.
