New Digi Release Today From Fresh Brewed Designs

Today we have new digital stamps being released at Fresh Brewed Designs.  You know me and you know that I think this is definitely something worth getting excited over.  But the deal gets ever better because Heather is offering you a BUNDLE DEAL!!!  Now that rocks!  So let’s take time to look at what I have created.



Here is the list of colors that I used for my card:  E-0000, E-00, E-02, E-25, E-30, E-31, E-33, G-14, G-16, R-08, R-11, RV-000, RV-00, RV-02, T-2, Y-06, YG-01, YG-13, YG-17 and then I used Star Dust Stickles for the wings.  I am so sorry that you can’t really see the stickles.  I wanted my fairy to be in really light colors.  You will be able to get this and the other ones in the Fresh Brewed Designs Shop.  I was so excited because I have had those apple brads in my stash for many, many years.  I went to a CKC in Fort Lauderdale back in 2008 and we had a class where we all made a cookbook page and then traded them at the class and made a scrapbook from the pages.  I had those brads from that.  Who knew 5 years later I would be able to use them?

I certainly hope that you like my card and that you find it inspiring.  I hope that you will visit Fresh Brewed Designs and see what the other girls have created as well as checking out the fabulous digital stamps that Heather has created for you and her bundle package deal she is offering.  I cannot wait to stop by Fresh Brewed Designs myself to check everything out.

Until we meet again…Ciao…


New Digital Stamp Release at Fresh Brewed Designs

Today at Fresh Brewed Designs, Owner Heather is releasing 5 new digital stamps.  They are all SO cute.  I printed them out and colored them as soon as I could.  I have actually done several cards already but I have 2 cards today to share with you using these new digital stamps.  They can all be found in the Woodland Creatures.  The first one is Bear:


My favorite part really is the eyes.  I thought making these eyes shine was so fun.  I also thought that this really made a cute birthday card.  I think that my husband ended up putting it with a package for our grandson who is turning 8 tomorrow so I guess his card is already posted.  🙂

My next card uses the digital stamp:  Hedgehog

Hedgehog--You're An Animal--FBD

I really enjoyed coloring the eyes on this one as well.  The sentiment says, “You’re An Animal!”  I’m sorry that is it so hard to read.

Please run over to Crafting Vicky’s blog to see the Beaver digital stamp that she used.  Rhonda used the Fox.   Marji did a layout with all of the Woodland Creatures in it.  Kim used the Beaver.  Vanessa used the Fox.  Edwina used the Hedgehog.  Also Lisa used the Hedgehog.  Then you will definitely want to go see all of the new digital stamps released over at Fresh Brewed Designs.  If you come back on Wednesday I will have more of these digital stamps using a special technique.  Hopefully it is something that you will really enjoy.  I hope that these cards have inspired you.  I also hope that you will come back for more inspiration on Wednesday.  I so enjoy making cards to share on my blog with you.  Now that I’m posting more often maybe I will have people coming by more often!  🙂

Thank you for stopping by and for your comments.  They are very much appreciated.  I will come and visit you too.  Until we meet again…Ciao…
