Digistamps and a challenge...

My first card is for the Mojo Monday 111 Contest Challenge and I used a darling digistamp from Pink Cat Studio! It's a quick and easy card, and I spent more time coloring than I did putting it together! This little penguin is just one of the cute digistamps they have! The images print out crisp and are easy to color on your favorite cardstock.

I printed the penguin on Stampin' Up! Whisper White cardstock, then cut him out using the scalloped square Nestabilities in the Cuttlebug. I sponged the edges, before removing the piece from the die, with my Colorbox Stylus, using Memento inks: Cottage Ivy and Rhubarb Stalk. I then colored him with my Copic markers. The designer paper is from Debbie Mumm's Harvest Stack, and I added satin ribbon at the break between papers. I glittered and attached a Stampin' Up! felt snowflake, mounted my penguin onto the background paper, and adhered it to a white card sized 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches. I finished it off with decorative rhinestones.

This delightful image is a digistamp as well! This stamp is from Stitchy Stamps and you can find these images as well as a lot more over at Digital-Ink Co. I like the freedom of the digital stamps as I can size or resize them to fit my needs.

I printed the turkey onto Whisper White cardstock, then cut him out with the scalloped oval Nestabilities in the Cuttlebug. Before removing him from the die, I sponged Memento Desert Sand on the edges with my Colorbox Stylus. I then proceeded to color him with my Prismacolor markers (Yes, I have all kinds of markers)! I added some highlights with my white Signo gel pen. I stamped the sentiment (G Studio) using Memento Rich Cocoa and punched it out with a scalloped circle punch. I sponged the edges with Memento Dandelion and Tangelo inks. Next I punched two small holes and inserted my satin ribbon and adhered it to my designer paper (K & Company). I did use pop up dots to raise up my tag. I mounted my paper to an orange card sized 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches, glued my turkey on, added a pretty bow and finished it off with pearls.

This last card uses one more digistamp by Jules' Junk and you can purchase her darling creations over at Digital-Ink Co also. This was another quick card, and can be used for January birthday's, Winter or Christmas. I printed the snowman on Whisper White cardstock, then cut him out and colored him with Copic markers. I glittered the large Stampin' Up! felt snowflake and added a large satin bow. My designer snowflake paper is by The Paper Studio and I cut it into three strips and mounted it to a 5 1/2 x 6 1/2 white card. I added the snowflake, snowman and a shimmery peel-off Christmas sticker to finish the card.
