PMS Digi Makeover Challenge #25

Today we have a sketch.

This sketch is great for simple and not so simple projects. I had some images from the Caffeine Trip set sitting on my desk so I decided to use these for the sketch. I pulled out a sheet of pattern paper from my Basic Grey stash. I'm not sure which collection it is from. I took the colors from that sheet a paper and this is what I created.

Now it is your turn to grab some digital stamps and play along with the sketch challenge this week. You can find all of the challenge details here.

PMS Digi Challenge 24

This week we are focusing on the Sentiment.

PMS has many wonderful sentiments and as Digital Stamps you can make them bigger and the star of the card front.

I used a simple sentiment from the Little Moments Mini Sentiment Set with some fun new bright paper I bought last weekend. It's from Cosmo Cricket. I love the fun bright colors and it goes perfectly with the sentiment.

Now grab your favorite Digital Sentiment from your favorite Stamp Compa and make it the star of your paper crafting project to enter the challenge this week. Head over to the PMS blog to get the details.

PMS Digi Makeover Challenge #23

This week we are cropping our images.

This is a fun way to use Digi Stamps. You can make the image much larger and focus on just part of the image by cropping it. Or just crop to add some interest to the main focal image (which is what I did here). I made a fun and simple Valentine's card using this technique. I used one of the hearts from Hugs and Kisses set. I used the overlay option in Photoshop to paint it pink. I printed it on white matte presentation paper with my HP ink jet printer. I used a square Spellbinder's die to cut just part of the heart out and I ran the edges of the white layer on some Black Soot Distress ink. I matted that on some purple card stock. Then I printed the sentiment from the same set on a piece of red card stock with my Brother Laser printer. I cut it down to a square (5.25" x 5.25") and mounted it all on a white card base that is 5.5" square.

I love how simple it is and I love purple mixed with red, pink and white. Now it is your turn to grab your favorite Digital Stamp and crop it to make something for the challenge this week. You can get all the details over on the PMS blog found here.

CSS February Blog Hop

This month we have an Inspirational Photo.

If you are following the hop from the beginning, you should have come from Meisje's blog. If not you should start from the beginning so you don't miss any of the inspiration this week. And make sure to leave a comment as you hop along because on Tuesday morning (February 14), we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs and that person will receive a huge grab bag of fabulous Gina K. Designs Stamps!

I was inspired by the shape and layout of the buildings in the photo. I used strips of paper to simulate that look. I used a sentiment stamp from the Smile set.

Now head over to Linda's blog and see what she has to share.
