Hi everyone! Thanks for all of the lovely birthday wishes last week. It truly made my day! My nephew also celebrated his birthday a day after me which brings me to my new release! I have a super cute baby boy digital stamp to share with you all today. This one, I've been holding off showing as it was for my nephew's first birthday. I stayed up all night working on this cute digi! I also made the papers last minute too - shhh! So I was in a bit of a rush to create a card, but it turned out pretty good for a quickie...I use this term lightly as it still took hours. Ha! I had a fight with my new ATG gun. I ended up having to re-glue everything, because when you place those papers down, that's it! There is no wiggle room. Doh! Start again! I definitely need more practise, and I also must learn not to place it down on the wrong side. I placed it down on top of my case that contains a billion beads, and when I picked up my ATG gun it took the whole case too! KA-BOOM! ...you guessed it! Beads EVERYWHERE! I swear you could make a reality show with my comedic crafting experiences! *Blush* I'm sure I'll be finding the odd bead for the next 10 years too!
Anywho, this stamp has 3 versions included in the file. One version has a blank bib which allows you to put anything you want, such as the baby's name as I've done in my handmade card (see below). Another version of this digi has a star on it for a generic card; perhaps for a birth announcement or baby shower card. AND finally, the third one has "1st B-day!" written on it for that special little guy who is celebrating his first birthday.
Everything was made by me except the buttons, bottle, metal heart, ribbon and twine; which came from my aunt Kim's stash she gave me! Doesn't leave much from me does it? - HA! Very plain and simple...but I really like simple. I used my Spellbinders Die and trusty Promarkers! This time I used Neenah Solar white cardstock to print and colour my digi on. It took a bit to get used to, as my other digis as of late, were coloured on Letraset Bleed-proof marker paper. Not sure which paper I like best yet. The letraset paper is thin but I glue it to cardstock & then cut it. Best paper when on a budget - YEAH! The blending is really nice on it and the red markers don't bleed. I will have to test the two papers using the same colours for a better comparison...when I find time!
Well I'm off! The dentist drilled 2 holes in my face yesterday. It's still sore, and I am just dying to rest. Hehe!

- I'm a wife, a mother, and a full time illustrator. I have a son who is 4, and a new baby girl who was born August 2012! Drawing & Digital painting is my life, but wish drawing digis was my full time job b/c I get so much satisfaction from it! For now it is a hobby that is mainly for my babies, and my escape from the strict guideline of the lisenced properties I work on in everyday life! I LOVE my day job too. I create small MMO games for major featured films, anything ranging from Dreamworks Madagascar, Ice Age, Tin Tin, or Puss In Boots to projects as small as My Little Pony, Barbie, and Hello Kitty to name a small few. I enjoy painting traditionally and digitally, and there are days where I wish I had four arms so I can do everything! Family comes first for me - life is just too short, so I try to find a happy balance between crafts and my full time career.
