Hello Sweet Friend

Hello friends!
Darlene with you today sharing a digital creation designed using Bev's fabulous digital images which can be purchased in her Etsy shop called TheArtsystamperShop.  


I knew I wanted to create a floral cluster as the focus of my card but needed an 'anchor' to begin my digital creation.  That's when I decided to use images from various sets to create my 'floral cluster' and the Wagon Wheel was perfect for my anchor image.  
The wagon wheel image is included in the Southwestern Garden set.


Since Beverly offers not only .jpg images but also .png images in her digital sets, it's fun & easy to create a project like this using my MS Word software.  
The other sets used are:









I love that you can pull in various images from a variety of Beverly's sets and create a One-of-a-Kind digital design.  Once I have my design the way I want it, I print it out onto 4x6 glossy photo paper.  Then I use it as my main A6 card design image along with what ever else comes to mind.  For instance, in this case I've rounded the corners on my focus image and layered atop a panel of designer paper that helps draw your eye to the flowers.


My sentiment comes from the Fruit Stand Stamp Set


and the little sprig under the sentiment is from the

"So pretty you should frame it!"

Hi there,

Inga Betenshi here with a bit different project today.

I coloured Beverly's magnolia... and framed it!


and a bit closer


It is actually pretty easy, The backgound is printed (*gasp!) and the flower is coloured with alcohol markers and pencils.
As you probably already know that sets of digital images in Artsysatmpers Etsy shop come in different formats. So you can use a png file (it will leave the flower white, ready to be coloured) on a background. I made the background gradient from clear to blue. 

Or you can print it out as a jpg file and colour everything! I actually did it, and I glued the page into my sketchbook (to cover some mess, but it's a secret)


so this time the background is coloured with alcohol markers and the flower is coloured with markers and pencils. See that beautiful glow? it is a white pen plus white pencil.

Anyways there are so many fun ways to use digital images!

You can find the set I used in  TheArtsystamperShop (Etsy)

Perfect Pansies - Memory Page with Kimberly Wiener

Hello there!  Kimberly Wiener here sharing another creation using  Beverly Cole's lovely images available on Etsy at TheArtsystamperShop.


As with all of Beverly's images, she gives the choice of added 
pre-colored as well as non colored images. 


Today I am featuring two brand new sets!  
The Perfect Pansies Digital Set as well as the gorgeous sentiment from 
This set features is so lovely with the colored or the non colored blooms
 For a twist, I selected to create using her pre-colored images.
The bright pinks and yellows in this digital set were just the perfect
 combination for my layout.
I have created a lovely border around my image on this
scrap page layout.



I selected the colored pansies and positioned them around my main image.
Adding a bud here and there as well as the leafy stems
 for a full grouping. 
 I adore the sentiment I selected for this layout.
One of the best reasons to go digital is the ability to size the images
 to whatever size that you need. 
Being able to size your images really opens a whole 
variety of creative options!


I hope that you have time to create and enjoy these 
wonderful images by Beverly Cole!

Summer fruits





Hello lovelies, hope you are well! today I am sharing a vintage fruit tag created for ArtsystamperI have used the wonderful fruit stand paper pack and the fruit stand stamp set.




I have used some paper from the fruit stand paper collection (the brown paper in the background is from my own stash) and a piece of corrugated cardboard. I have also fussy cut the orange digital stamp from the fruit stand stamp set.




I covered a piece of Kraft cardstock measured to tag size with the brown leafy design paper from my stash. Next, I adhered the orange theme paper. I have distressed all edges with the edge of my scissors and Walnut stain distress ink. 
I then, tore some corrugated card board, and adhered it to the left side of my tag. This has also been edged with the same distress ink. 




Next, I cut a square from the leaf design paper and stamped a scratch design background stamp using Walnut stain distress ink. 
Finally, I used the png quote stamp from the same set to complete my tag. Thanks so much for stopping by, see you on the next one! 
Hugs, Zowie xx

Magnificent Magnolias with Carole


Hello! 
Happy Monday!

I have two cards to share today and both feature the beautiful My Magnolia digital stamp set. This set comes with three black and white digital stamps for you to colour and three pre-coloured images for quick and easy projects, as well as three sentiments and three beautiful digital papers.

My first card has a mixed media background and is hand coloured.
Here it is:


I arranged two of the .png magnolia stamps together in my chosen graphics program, resized them and printed them out. Bev has a video tutorial on how to do this which you can view here and here.

I coloured the image with Copic markers, using Bev's coloured images as my guidelines. Once happy with the colouring, I added some white Posca pen highlights and dots. I blended Antique Linen ink for the background. I die cut plain white card to make a frame for the magnolia. I used a brayer and Wilted Violet and Seedless Preserves Distress Inks to create the colour on the frame. I toned it down with some PaperArtsy Snowflake chalky paint and added some white paint splatters. I inked around the frame edges with black archival ink.

The magnolia and background were adhered to the centre of a 15cm square card and the frame was popped up on foam tape. The sentiment is from the Sketched Spring Blossoms set. I die cut it with a scalloped oval and inked the background with Antique Linen. The edges of the scalloped oval were lightly inked with Seedless Preserves to add some definition. The sentiment was popped up on foam tape.



***
My second card uses the pre-coloured Magnolias and one of the three digital background papers from the set.


Again I arranged two of the pre-coloured stamps together and printed them out. I used a die to cut out the image and inked the background with Seedless Preserves Distress Ink, keeping the die in place to create a white border. The Seedless Preserves is highly pigmented, so I took a baby wipe and lightly touched the background to take away some of the colour. 
I matted my image onto damson coloured card and popped it on foam tape to be mounted on top of the green magnolia digital paper.
The edges of the background paper were inked in black and matted onto damson card.

Here are the TheArtsystamperShop products I used:

My Magnolia                             Sketched Spring Blossoms

That's all for today! 
I'll be back with another Artsystamper project in two weeks time.

Digital Koi Pond Stamp set

Hi Everyone! 
This is Michelle back again today with a new card featuring the Digital Koi Pond Stamp set. 

I love the amazing flower and koi fish that come in this set! Perfect for a shaker card! And because it's digital, I can make each item the size I need. 

To make this card, I printed the flower to be about 6 inches wide! You can see I had to cut one side off so it would fit on this standard A2 size card. I colored it with alcohol ink markers. I embossed my white card front and used a circle die to create the window.

I printed out a koi fish from the set and colored it. I added a water printed background and blue and silver sequins for the shaker. 

I decided to wait on the sentiment and will probably just add one inside once I decide who I will give the card to. Take a look at everything you get in the digital set. You will receive both colored and uncolored images.

Hand Picked For You

Hi, everyone! It's Nancy here with you today.

Today I am actually sharing two projects.
I've created a card and a bookmark.
These projects coordinate, and would make a lovely set!
Add a book and you'd have a wonderful gift set!
They were created using:

Fruit Stand Digital Stamp Set and

Fruit Stand Paper Pack and Tall Tags.

Here they are together:


Let's start with the card:


I began with a white cardstock card base.
Then added one of the digital papers for the background.
I then went into the files and added the "Hello Sweet Friend" sentiment to the sign board.
I chose all the flowers I wanted, in the sizes I wanted,
and then printed everything out.



Then I cut everything out.
I inked all the edges, curled the flower petals,
and layered them in place using foam tape.
Finally, I added some Gold Liquid Pearls to the center of the flowers.


Now for the bookmark:

I recently purchased a Laminator, 
so I've got my eyes open for ways to use it.
The fun in buying new toys is finding ways to use them, right?

I printed the Tall Tag out, and cut it out.


I printed out another piece of the same paper that I used on the card.
I traced around the tag, and cut it out.
I adhered the two pieces together, and punched the hole out.
Then I ran it through my Laminator.
It did a fabulous job!
I added a ribbon to the top of the tag.
Now the tall tag is a long lasting bookmark! 


I think the "Hand Picked For You" 
is a great sentiment for a bookmark
if it's included with a gift of a book, don't you? 


Isn't that a pretty set?

My Magnolia Fancy Fold

Hello, friends!  It's Kren here today to share some digital fun with you.
It's called a Triangle Corner Pop Up card and
it provides the perfect place to showcase an image
from My Magnolia.  And it creates a display
not to be missed.



First I printed off the background paper called Magnolia Paper Blue
that I had sized on a quad Pages document.
Using a quad layout keeps the pattern smaller for cards.
More information about a quad document on my blog.
Then I created the fancy fold card and applied the designer paper mats.
I drop and dragged the My Magnolia png image onto a Pages
document and resized it.  The drop and drag /sizing technique
for the sentiment was next again and then die cutting it with a stitched rectangle die.
Another folded die cut piece creates the "stand."

My Magnolia Fancy Fold

 It's Kren here today to share some digital fun with you.
It's called a Triangle Corner Pop-Up card and
it provides the perfect place to showcase an image
from My Magnolia.


First I drop and dragged the background paper called Magnolia Paper Blue
onto what I call a "quad" Pages document.
The document is divided into quadrants and each quadrant creates an A2-sized card front.
I dragged the paper image into each quadrant.
This keeps the digital paper images small sized for cards.
Then I created the fancy fold card and applied the designer mats.
I added Magnolia png image onto a Pages quad and resized it.
 I added the sentiment to the image, printed it off, 
and then die cut it with a stitched rectangle die.
Another folded die-cut piece creates the "stand."
You can find directions for the Triangle Corner Pop-Up card online. 
 More on future posts on "quads" on my blog and how to use digital images on a Mac.

Something a little different . . .

Hello Friends!
Darlene with you today and it's time once again to share a project (or two) using beautiful digital images from the TheArtsystamperShop.  Bev has created some gorgeous new designs for September and I knew exactly what I wanted to create when I saw her beautiful Fruit Stand Paper pack.


I've created a gift set which includes a tissue box cover and a matching card.
(directions for my tissue box covers can be found in the Tutorials Tab beneath the header on my personal blog)


For this project, I have printed my design of choice onto (1) 8 1/2 x 11 sheet using 80# card stock
and (4) 4 x 6 panels.  The larger sheet was used for the lid of my tissue box cover as well as the card front.  The 4x6 panels were used for the box sides.


Older oval dies were used for the opening and decorative oval on the lid.  Hand drawn fax stitching  & black Nuvo crystal drops was added accents.


This quick & easy card was created using images from the Fruit Stand stamp set ...





You'll certainly want to check out the TheArtsystamperShop. and for inspiration, be sure to subscribe to this blog (see right sidebar ... Follow by Email).  The design team ladies are amazing and are showcasing some amazing works of art ... be sure to come back often!
