Digi's... who would have thought???

When I decided to try my first digi image, it was under much duress! Really! I only digi'd at first because it seemed so big, so fast, that I thought I should learn in case my rubber stamps become obsolete like 8-track tapes.


Now, oddly, I find myself very much looking forward to the new digi releases!
They are in your possession immediately, you don't need to wait for them to be shipped, and you can resize them - how cool is that? There are some folks that are even savvy enough to know how to color them via computer and never pick up an inkpad! Anyway, that being said, today's post features two digi images!


I sort of had the urge to play with pop-up cards last night, so here's what I did!

Monday's challenge at There's Magic in the Air featured this darling penguin on ice skates.
Kim was the designer in charge (lol) this week, and her twist to Nina's cute image, was to use metallic or shiny paper, cardstock, etc.
Well....I have had this glittery self-stick stuff for-evah!
I decided to use it to create a frozen pond.
A little white fun flock around the edges, and this sweetie was skating her heart out!


The snowperson image is another of the SO CUTE images from The Digi Kitty.
I printed out Mr. Snow, and took the liberty of adding a little bit of ruffle and hat extension to give him the love of his life, Mrs. Snow! As you can see, they are quite happy!
(Whew...sure am glad that you can't see where Mr. Snow's hand is!)
(Guess Mrs. Snow should have had some rosy cheeks - I'm sure she's embarrassed!)
There is a Digi Kitty challenge on Paper Craft Planet, that I will probably enter this in.

Well, that's all I have for you today! I hope that these brought a smile to your day.

I was just looking at digi images this morning. I have never used them; i don't know why. Your penguin is adorable. I saw that snowman this morning and was inches away from getting him. Love your pop-ups! Thanks for sharing.

Crystal said...

Connie said...

Love the card and the digi. And I enjoy coloring in the image myself. I don't want the computer to do all the work.

Glittered Paws said...

Love the pop up cards - just too cute girl. As you know my computer is possessed so I am not into the digi images yet - hopefully that will change after Christmas and my computer daughter comes.

Your cards turned out fabulous. I was just like you about digi images and now it seems to be all I am using and I love sizing to whatever project I want to use them on.

Georgia said...

I love what you did with the digi stamps. The little skating penquin is too cute!

Brenda said...

Patti your cards are so cute! I love the skating one very creative! I haven't found the love for digi's yet even though I have tried a few of them. It is kinda funny as one of my jobs is a computer tech and I should be all over digi's. I guess there is no replacing to smell of new rubber in the house for me, LOL. Great cards, thank you for sharing.

Cat said...

You did a great job on these cards, Patti! I especially like the bling! Just soooo cute!

Stamping SAM said...

Wait a minute're up late too...oh, yeah, you can sleep late! You're living my dream girl! LOL! My DD is pushing me back into my Mojo and I think it's almost working. Love your take on TMITA image this week. I think Kim created a great challenge for the little penquin. Love your pink colors too!

ps call me at TKC about 11 and wake me up for lunch!

Lynn Mercurio said...

How fun are these, Patti! Great job on your layout designs of the cards you have made.

Patti said...

Both cards are absolutely adorable! Lovin the penguin! Your pond is perfect!

Curt in Carmel said...

First, that penguin card is totally awesome! WOW, what a great pop up card and the shiny pond is so perfect. Then, I scroll down and see that cute pair of snow people and read that you created her and just couldn't believe how creative you are!!!! Then I laughed out loud about where his had was, and the first thought that came to me was "no wonder they are both smiling so big!" LOL Thanks for this awesome post. Such great work! Best, Curt

Digi Kitty said...

Patti--no wonder the DT chose you girl! You are so insanely talented! I love how you added the extension to the hat and resized my snowman to make a snowgirl--hahahah! Good job--maybe we will get you making digis too!
I can't wait till you enter this over at PCP--so hurry up and do that! LOL
