Summer Blossoms

I finally found a little time to craft and was blessed with a bit of creativity to match. Most of today’s cards use a digital stamp with an image and/or sentiment. I use Adobe Illustrator to manipulate the files. It is an easy program with which to create. (I have even created some sentiments myself.) […]

Welcome Fall

I do believe that the heat has finally broken in MN. We are experiencing a number of beautifully, cooler days. The Maple trees on my boulevard have already begun to change color. My sidewalk is covered with plenty of helicopter seeds for the squirrels to collect. The Cutting Cafe Blog has a lovely digital fall […]

Adult Coloring and Texture

Digi Stamps (for short) are just that. Instead of an inked imaged, they image (or stamp) is printed via computer […]

I printed each stamp twice and layered various parts of each stamp. I really like this moving truck. I cut some of the […]
