Di's Digi Downloads

Make sure you enter your animal themed project for a chance to win that $12 prize voucher!

Here is my project-


Frantic Stamper had pets as their January 2017 die releases, and I couldn't resist! I have a beagle and a Yorkshire Terrier (aka Terrier-ist) named Filo Beddoe after the bare knuckle fighter Clint Eastwood played in Every Which Way but Loose. 


 I used the Frantic Stamper dies Bobble Head Sweet Pea and the Doggy Accessories (which has the collar, plus a leash, ball, scarf, bone, and dog dish).

For more information, you can visit me here.

Have a wonderful day!

Pine and Owl

Welcome back to Die Cut Divas.

Cindy here to share another card For the Love of Animal/Pets.



Yes a bird is an animal, it has its own class all by itself.  The classes of animals are: mammals, birds, fish, reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates,

I created a watercolor background on watercolor paper using distress inks mixed with Perfect Pearl solution.  The pine branches are die cut using color card stock.  The owl is stamp in ombre ink, closely trimmed, and then clear embossed, and I added pale blue pearl for his eyes.  :)  Here's a close up, you could see the shine on him.




This month's sponsor is Di's Digi Stamp.  Hope to see you play along!



 Supplies:


Hampton Ki Clear Stamp - SC0587

Memory Box cutting die - Forest Pine Branch
Hero Art Ombre Ink - Tide Pool to Navy
Ranger Distress Ink - Barn Door, Wild Honey, Peeled Paint
Ranger Perfect Pearl

and
our Awesome Sponsor for March 2017 is Di's Digi Stamps

Di's Digi Downloads


The PRIZE is $12 voucher to Di's Digi Stamps shop.

Let's take a look of our DT's projects for inspirations:

Arlene doesn't live in the snow, but loved this old fashioned mail box and pre-colored digi from Di's digi Stamps. This is the tag she packaged with a small gift for her friend who does live in snow country. See more here.




Michelle thinks of St. Patricks day in March, and this card covers the popular pastime of that day-


Cindy thinks of the first day of Spring in March, when all the little critters come out from their Winter routines and become active again.  And of course she thinks about the flowers too.  So this darling Daisy Fun image says it all.  You could visit her: Here.


Come have some fun and join in the challenge.  Do not let the challenge theme scares you.

The classes of animals are: mammals, birds, fish, reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates.  So you could use image of your favorite four legged pets, birds, fish, frog or crocodile, and even insects qualifies.   Just remember to use a die or embossing folder with your die cut machine on your projects.
