A New Hang Out

The other day, I joined a new site called Crafter's Digital Art Center. I received an invite from my Stamp TV friend, Linda Payne. She make the most amazing card using both stamps and digi images. She can be found at Payne Holler Cards. Please pay her a visit. I think this is just what I needed to get me motivated, to sort my images by designer. I have been saving them for many months, grabbing them whenever I can, but many times the file does not have the designers name attached. This gave me a real kick in the pants to get them in proper order by designer.

I have spent the last few days, searching through galleries, trying to put names with images. I was able to find many but still have a slew of unknowns. I'll find them...... it will take time. here are a few cards that I created using images that have designers.

The first card is made with a free image from Priscillastyles. She offered it up as a greeting to her new site. Isn't this butterfly elegant? My dp is from MAMBI nd K&Co. I added Prima's and punched leaves. My image was colored in Copics. I added a chipboard word, Stickles for sparkle, and gem as accents.

My next card is an adorable froggie from Meljen's Designs. His dinner is being dangled by a mouse with a stick. Too cute! This card uses papers from the Basic Grey Origins collection and paper ribbon from K&Co. I added paper flowers from MM and candy dot centers. This card was also colored with Copics and sponging was done with Kiwi Kiss form SU!

My last card is an image I had a hard time hunting down. It is from The Stamping Boutique. I originally found this on Splitcoast Stampers as a freebie. Phew, I went through all 136 pages of the Crafter's Digital gallery, figuring it would just have to be there. It wasn't. I just love it, and wanted to give proper credit. The papers I used are from the ATD, Family Affair collection. The sentiment is from Gina K. Designs. I used grosgrain ribbon and pearls as accents.

I hope you enjoy what I have made and that you will check out Crafters Digital Art Center!
