Welcome to Delightful Thursday at Digital Delight. All of the designers have some wonderful cards for you to see for this week so we would love for you to stop by and see all there creations.
sitting so pretty r

The image I wanted to use is called Flower power daffy, she is just adorable. My sentiment is from Groove on sentiments. I sure used a lot of die cut this time, it was fun creating a scene. For making the card spellbinders grand labels 23, several of the sizes. The paper is from paper studio. Cut the image out with my silhouette cameo. The smallest grand label 23 I created a scene using a home made template and a sponge to create the sky, the color used was memento ink summer sky. For the green (grass) used memento bamboo leaves ink.  Taping the layers together and adding the grand oak die from memory box, the leaves from impression obsession die 066-c, the yellow flowers are a punch called flower #2 from punch a bunch. Added to the centers stickles glitter glue color cinnamon.
sitting so pretty l
Used foam dots to give a 3D look to the fence and daffy. The fence is a magnolia doohickey lovely fence. Martha Steward grass punch. The tiny flowers in front are from poppy stamps called wild flower. The 6 red flower are metal and added some stickles glitter to the center. Flower soft mixed colors added a little to the sides and bottom to hide the white edges, I think that worked pretty good.

Quiet times

Quite times 2013

I’m back with the Cards for Men challenge #8 and it is anything goes but has to be for a man or a boy card. I have not made a scenic card in a long time, I love to make them.

Quite times 2013 r

I first cut out my card stock with spellbinders die labels 5. I left the die on the front of the cut, on the front I used removal tape on the edges so it would stay in place and add the inks to the sky and the ground area. For stamping the stamps I added post it notes on the white area so I would not stamp in that area. Punched out a 1 inch circle from the post it notes. Using different sponges for each color of ink. The inks used for the sky are memento cantaloupe ink add a little and now put the 1 inch circle on add some more of the cantaloupe trying not to let the circle move now add the tangelo memento ink to the top edges. The grass area used memento bamboo leaves ink. I finished it off with some memento tuxedo black only on the bottom. After I got all the stamps done I removed the post it notes papers and the circle and this is what I got…

Quite times 2013 l

The stamps I used are from stampscapes man with boy, birds, and cows. The scenic background is from The angel company from the set mountain scene. Rounded all the corners with the zutter round it all.

Quite times 2013 i

Inside add another spellbinders label 5, sponged the edges with memento cantaloupe ink. Magnolia doohickeys leaf and memory box pepita border. No copic markers this time. close up.
