4 Cards 4 Techniques 1 Digi Stamp Set From Sparkle N Sprinkle

Some places just sell digital images that is just that...ONE digital line drawn digi to color.  But what about the times you don't have time to color?  Or maybe you would love to see what it looks like colored so you can learn to color it?  Well Sparkle N Sprinkle sells digital image sets that come uncolored for YOU to color, AND include pre-colored.  And not just that but they come with both JPG form for you to just print and use, and in PNG form if you want to use it PhotoShop or to upload to Cricut Design Space to print & cut!


I used the Sparkle N Sprinkle "I Love Old Trucks" digital stamp set to create these 4 different cards using different techniques, patterned papers, and stitched dies...AND...





....you can see them all in my video where I also share the techniques I used.

Altered Clipboards

I finally did it!!!  My first altered clipboard!!!
I love how they turned out and just had to share them!


So you can see that there is a pocket to hold things I am showing one with a couple things in the pocket.


I made the green one to hang by our front door to hold outgoing mail so we don't forget it when we leave the house.  And the pink one is the first one I made and it's to hang in my craft room.  Pink is my favorite color and I love flowers and butterflies, so this is defintely ME.

All the details about what I used are in my video
