Tia's Tips: As a child I loved coloring books! A whole page with usually several images that could be colored and that together created a scene or story. I became fan of digital stamps for that same reason. With digital stamps, many times there's more than one image. And quite often the details are greater, more refined. Just like my childhood coloring books, I can print out and color a scene that is unique and captures just what I want to say or send to someone. With a digital stamp, some days if feels like the possibilities are endless! Don't get me wrong, I've never met a stamp that I didn't like, but digital stamps hold a very special place in my heart.
The Paper Shelter Card Challenge #579: All THINGS NEW
Digital Image: Moving In Together
Welcome back friends! I had a nice long holiday break and during that time-I MOVED! My husband received a promotion and with it a job transfer to a city several hours away from where we had been living. Wow! Let me say, moving is for the young! We've been in our new home for several weeks and I am still unpacking boxes! Of course Christmas, New Year's and working full-time have stalled our efforts greatly! But, we will get there one day soon. In the meantime, I was thrilled with this weeks challenge theme: All Things New and even more when I found this adorable couple (who look just like my hubby and me!) unpacking their endless boxes.
Now, I cannot wait to see what all of you have new in 2024! So, jump in and join our challenge! The Rules are simple:
Up for grabs at The Paper Shelter is our usual fantastic prize! Our winner will win a $30 store voucher if you've used a Paper Shelter product on your entry (such as the pre-colored image, the black and white digi, or the digital paper that comes in the set). Or win 3 digis of your choice, if you've used images from another brand.
You can enter the challenge up to 3 times, provided you've used a Paper Shelter product on at least one of them. Good Luck!!!
Here Are the Details on My Card:
I began with a 5.25'' x 5.25'' square card cut from Kraft cardstock because it reminded me of all the boxes we packed and are unpacking!
I used a postage stamp die to cut my focal image and decided then I wanted to create more layers from the die set.
I selected this cute village of homes for my background and then selected cardstock to match.
The focal image didn't quite standout enough and that was when I reached for more Kraft cardstock and matted each of my squares.
I finished by adding some flowers in my color palette because ribbon just didn't feel right and I still wanted another layer of dimension.
I wanted to use my manual Dymo label maker, but haven't found it yet! So opted for my electronic label maker. I could have hand-written my sentiment, but like the label better.
Well, I've got boxes calling my name! If you follow-me here on my blog, keep your eyes out for me sharing my homemade address cards soon!
