PMS Digi Makeover Challenge #29

This week we are celebrating the BOYS.

With all the frilly lacy embellishments available it seems to be much easier to make girly cards than masculine cards. But this week we are challenging PMS fans to make a card for a boy/man in your life.

I used the Rock Star image from the Oliver Digital Stamp Set. I cut out the guitar shaped card, banner and star with my Silhouette Cameo. The cool thing about this tool is that it is so Digi Stamp friendly. I was able to place the Rock Star sentiment directly in the Silhouette Studio Software and layer it with the banner cut file. The software sends the Digi Stamp to your printer and the machine knows exactly where to cut around it. Love it! I used black and bronze card stock for the star and guitar. I used some mini brads and DMC floss for the guitar strings.

So put away your frilly, lacy embellishments and pull out your manly digital images and embellishments to play along with our challenge this week. You can get all the details on the blog here.

PMS Digi Makeover Challenge #28

This week we have an Inspiration Challenge for you.

Here is the Inspiration Photo.

I was really drawn to the yellow flowers in the picture. So that is what I used as my inspiration.

I used one of the flowers from the Color it Summer Digi set and the sentiment is from the Little Moments Digi set. I love this sentiment set because it has so many great generic sentiments to cover any occasion. And since it is a digital set, I can resize it to meet my needs. The pattern paper is from my stash of older papers. I went through about 75% of my stash this weekend and reorganized it. I found some papers I didn't realize I had. I am sure I am not alone. LOL! The card base is Wasau White. The scallop edge is Grass Green {GKD} and I added some fun ribbons and trims from my stash.

I also used Card Patterns Sketch #157 for my card.

Now grab some digital stamps and be inspired the the gorgeous photo of spring wild flowers. You could win some free PMS Digi Stamps. Read about the details here on the PMS blog.

For my card I used iSpy Sketch 6.

PMS Digi Makeover Challenge #27

This week our challenge is to use Critters on our project.

Since I am a little bummed that we never had a real winter this year in PA, I wanted to enjoy a little virtual snow by making a wintry card. Plus I made this card for Lee's VSN Spring Snows Challenge over at SplitCoastStampers and I used the sketch from iSpy Sketch #6.

I used cute little Pete the Penguin holding his cup of joe. Love that ! I used papers from Be Merry paper pad from My Mind's Eye. I love the colors and the cute little snowmen. I cut the snowflakes with my Silhouette Cameo. I love this machine. And it is perfect with Digi Stamps because you can print and cut, and it works perfectly.

Now grab some of your favorite Critter Digi Stamps and play along with us. You can find the details on the PMS blog here.
