Those who regularly follow my blog know that I have recently ventured into digital stamping. And, I am slowly learning a bit more about the art of using them. So if they are not perfect just keep that in mind. I am a newbie to it.
The first one I am showing you is one using Artsystampers Digitals. I am entering this one in the Artsystamper Digitals Challenge #5-Winter Holidays. I used the colored versions of the pine cone and pine needles images along with an image from the Poinsettia set. I then used a frame of red mirror card stock using a die from Paper Smooches called Fab Frames.
The second card I made used a set from Jan's Digitals called Toyland Bear. Again I used the colored versions. I took the evergreen branch and kept placing it into a formation that sort of resembled a tree like we had one year. It was a short wide tree with long needles. I also added a sentiment from that same stamp set. This one I will be entering in Jan's Digi Stamps Challenge #3-Anything Goes. I brushed on some blue color around the design. Then I die cut it out with a Makers Movement die called Stitched Rectangles Nested Essentials. I know I got my tree a bit larger then I had hoped but with using this die it sort of gave it a frame too. Afterwards I thought perhaps I should have added some darker blue color with my brushes to make the outside more outstanding but maybe I will try that another time. The last thing I added was an Epoxy clear star which I added to some yellow card stock to make a topper for the tree. This design was added to a darker green card stock and then inside the card I added another sheet of white paper for the inside sentiment.
Anyway that was my fun with digitals this week. Now I have to get down to business and get the cards out. I did manage to print off family photos and write a newsletter yesterday and the postage stamps are now on hand too so there is no excuse in putting it off any longer. Thanks for stopping by.
Have a great day!

You're doing a great job with these digital images, especially after just learning how to work with them! Love them both!
Verna! you are already a pro with digi use. I may have to pick your brain as I don't often use them. Your cards are so sweet and festive!
I also love your previous post showing the Vikings card you created for your grandson. What a treasure that you made him this special card and that he loved it!!
Have a wonderful night.
Verna, I don't know how much more perfect your digital cards could be! You're doing an amazing job with them! Love the Christmas tree you created, and the frame on your poinsettia card is so pretty!
Verna, You get a GOLD STAR! You are doing fantastic maneuvering around with the digi's! You managed a tree and gifts under it! I want to thank you for featuring "Toyland Bear" on your card. So glad you elected to entered it in our "Jan's Digi Blog Challenge". Good luck in the drawing. Happy Crafting!
Fabulous results from your work with the digi stamps Verna
You are doing a fabulous job with digi's. I love that they are available at our fingertips is we need them. I am getting better each time I try them. You are too.
You are really rockin' the digi thing. I have been very reticent to do much of it as I really don't know what I'm doing. Guess I need to try, your cards are beautiful. Thanks for the inspiration here, well done!
You did great cards for a newbie. That's one place I haven't gone yet. I'm a bit computer challenged so I'm not sure I could do that without my grand kids here to help. I love both cards.
Two incredibly beautiful cards, Verna! I love the red on red in your poinsettia theme creation, and that fabulously full Christmas tree in the second! hugs, de
You're doing great with the digitals, Verna! Both of these cards are gorgeous! I would not know that you're a newbie - everything looks beautiful!
Your cards are beautiful, Verna. You look like a pro already with digi stamps. xx
Two great cards with your digis, Verna! And kudos on getting to mail them out, still working on that here...
Beautiful cards Verna...I think you are fabulous with your digitals...I wish I could maneuver mine like that...it is on my 2020 list of things to do, but I lost all mine I had back in June, so need to 'stock up' on them again!!
These are both beautiful. You seem like a digi pro to me!!
They are both wonderful! You seem to have caught on. I need the feel of the stamp in my hand, so haven't really played with a diji. There seems to be a lot of them out there, so you never can tell, someday I may give it a try. Your cards are beautiful!
Your cards are PERFECT! I just love the way your combine images from my Artsystamper Digital sets. Keep it up!
Good luck in the random draw, and I look forward to what you do with more digis.
