Plus, links to past Patriotic Vintage Freebie Image and Sheet Music if you want to make decorations. * A Great Giveaway will start Mon, July 1 st for ten of our new Printables and a NEW and my Fave Stamp Set reveal!
Our July Linky Party and DT Challenge is the first Monday each month which means it falls on July 1 st this year and runs all week. We will have 2 NEW Design Team Members - so you have to come check it out and you can also add any sample you have created and win stuff.
I bought this vintage Fairy Bridge tally set years ago because I adore the cute art deco style fairies and colors. I couldn't decided if we should offer them cleaned out but the lettering style is lovely and... maybe you play bridge? I decided to leave them as a single $1.95 Printable Sheet and I will show you tomorrow how easy it is to also remove all the lettering. We have so many beginners I will use 'Paint' a free image editing program installed on many PC computers. Gimp is popular for Mac users.
Paint.net has more features than Paint, so I would say to download Paint.net from Google if you have neither. Photoshop Elements is amazing , I swear the clone and healing tool have a brain and know what I want to fix and magically repairs it.
Next, I want to show you our New Birthday Dreams Printable set with 2 Digital Download Pages designed so you can create a fun card or change it to a Party Invitation and create a gift card.
Here is Page 2 which has the other greetings for creating a Gift Tag and Party Invitation
Here's a sample I made quickly to show how you can easily layer repeated images using pop dots or foam adhesive. I like the colors and sassy fun style.
My watercolor attempt below was my motivation to order some Inktense Watercolor Pencils after I saw the stunning garden theme cards DT Member Michele Kovack has created lately! Michele is very talented at coloring but samples I've seen by various people make me think these will work better for me than Distress Markers (which I'm disappointed with).
Here is Michele's Carrot Card created with our Vegetable Garden Digital Set and you can see details on her blog
Here is her 3D Lettuce Card. Look at the cool green color! Details on Michele's Blog
This sunflower is from our Flower Garden Digital Stamp Set and the Paper is from our Garden Papers. Details here on Michele's Blog.
Here is a great idea from DT Member Rebekah Fairies to using the green veggie theme to create a 'Money Pocket' to pass on some green in $$ bills!
Lastly, a very sweet card by DT Memember Sheila Rumney showing off our Sweet Stuff Digital Stamp Set. I really like how she used the piece of lace and old envelope
I almost forgot, I did some decoupage plates and light switch covers using CD 2. I will show details tomorrow with the little tutorial
See you tomorrow
