Dachshund Party

Hi Everyone!
Hope this finds you well.  Sometimes we miss an important Birthday because of our busy/hectic lives so I came up with a card designed for such an occasion.

I used a set called Dachshund Party from Imagine That Digistamp.

Here's how it came out...

I printed and colored this adorable image on Xpress-It paper with Copic Markers.  I mounted it on American Crafts DIY Shop paper and then on an orange card base.  Lastly, I added an Elizabeth Craft Designs "Hi!" sticker for my finishing touch.

Here are the Imagine That Digistamp sets I used:

A Walk Down Memory Lane

Hello Everyone!
March is the 4th Birthday of Imagine That Digistamps and we are celebrating with a walk down memory lane on the Imagine That! Creative Playground Blog :)

Here is mine....

I was a Guest DT in July of 2016 and officially became  a member of the Dynamite Delights DT in August 2016.

Here is my first project with the Dynamite Delights DT:

Details/original post can be found HERE

I used the following sets:

Party Cows #1                                                  Party Cows #2

        Party Cows #3                                      OR  Party Cows Bundle

Here is my card using my favorite set in the shop:

* Details:  I colored this image with Copic markers and mounted it on black Stampin' Up card stock.  Next I took a cherry cobbler card base and added washi tape from Queen & Company and then popped up the gator on the front. 

Here's the full Gator Strong set:

You can get it HERE

This set is so special to me because my son left for the Air Force and his flight mascot at basic training were the Gators and their motto was "Gator Strong".  I searched high and low for a gator image that would be perfect for his Air Force scrapbook to no avail.... until.... Kristy released this one.  I am so grateful to have this set in my collection, it will forever be my favorite!  Thank you Kristy, you are AMAZING!

You're In my Thoughts & Prayers

Hey ya'll...
I've been playing with the new March monthly 'Featured set' that you can get for "FREE" just for linking up to the Imagine That! Creative Playground Challenge using any Imagine That Digistamp

This set is so versatile, especially because it comes with a version that has a blank ribbon around the cross and you can put any sentiment that you want on it! 

Here is my designed card for inspiration :)

"You're in my Thoughts & Prayers"

I started by printing 2 copies on Xpress-it paper, one with the sentiment I chose and one with no sentiment.  I colored (with Copic Markers) the entire image for the one with no sentiment on it and then just the part with the sentiment on the other one.  I fussy cut the sentiment piece from the second image so that I could pop dot it on top of the first completely colored design, I wanted the sentiment to really stand out :)
Next I overlapped two circular doilies on a yellow card base and then put my completed image centered over the doilies.

I used the following Imagine That Digistamp sets to complete my design:

Lamb with Cross         (sentiment from)Pretty Peacocks

You Rock!
First I chose what I wanted to use from the Elvis Bear set and then I printed him on Xpress-it paper and colored it up with Copic Markers. Next, I mounted it on "cherry cobbler" Stampin' Up card stock and then onto a "night of navy" card base.

Here is the full Elvis Bear set:

Foxy Thang & I've goat you, babe!

I hope this finds you all doing well!  I designed a few cards using some of my Imagine That Digistamps and I thought I would share them with all of you...

First, We have....

Foxy Thang

I started with printing this Foxy Thang :) on Xpress-it paper and coloring with Copic Markers.  I mounted the colored image on red shimmer paper and then added it to a brown card base.  Next, I added a paper butterfly and the word friends to complete the design.

Here is the complete Imagine That Digistamp set:

And second we have.....

I've goat you, babe!

I wanted to include two goats in my image so I flipped one of the goats horizontally so they would be facing each other, then I printed them on Xpress-it paper and colored them up with Copic Markers.  Next, I mounted them on a dark shimmer paper and then onto a mustard colored card base. Lastly, I added a circled heart die to complete the design.

Here is the complete Imagine That Digistamp set:

*Note: If you would like to get either or both of these digistamps, just click on the name above the stamp image and it will take you to the shop.

Aurora Wings Challenge #45 - Sprite Delight IV

If you are new to visiting here, welcome to Le Doux Designs... my HAPPY place :)

I've been playing with Aurora Wings Sprites for a while now, I love them so much!
I'm so excited to show you what I have done with them this time... 
first, I decided I wanted to color up several of them and create a project with them so I chose to go with a Christmas Theme.  
Here is how it turned out:

"Christmas Blessings" with AW Sprites
I printed them on Xpress-it paper and then colored them with Copic Markers.  Next I trimmed them into small squares, I double mounted them first with black and then cherry cobbler card stock from Stampin' Up and then I placed them onto a shiny silver and white 12x12 patterned paper. 
These "Christmas Blessings" will be framed in a 12x12 black frame.

I just love how they came out!!!  I hope you like them too :)

You can visit the Aurora Wings Shop HERE to choose your favorite Sprites and then join us in the Aurora Wings Blog Challenge HERE.

*I used the following Sprites for my project:  Christmas Lights Sprite, Christmas Cactus Sprite, Mistletoe Sprite, Poinsettia Sprite, Christmas Tree Sprite, Star Angel Sprite, Holly Sprite, Garland Sprite and Little Santa Sprite (they are listed from left to right, top to bottom)

Thanks for stopping by!
Please let me know if you have any questions.

Whoo Loves You? & Owl Always Love You

Hello All!
Today I'm going to share some cards I designed with some of the Imagine That Digistamp Owl sets.  The owls are so darn cute and fun to work with... here are my card designs:

Whoo Loves You?

I printed the colored version of the owls on white card stock then mounted it on toupe card stock.  I put these beautiful owls on a pink background card base and I used glitter washi tape from Queen & Co. along the side.  Finally, added a pink glitter heart mounted on some printed paper for a little extra bling :)

Here is the full Imagine That Digistamp set I used:

And here's the second one:

Owl Always Love You

I colored this owl with copic markers on Xpress-it paper and mounted it on a green card base.  I then added the "Happy Birthday" sticker and a balloon die to bring it all together :)

Here is the full Imagine That Digistamp set:
