Free Memorial Card, Fab Colored Cards, Gift Box, Garden Cards and Tutorial

Hi Everyone, 

I have some fabulous samples to share today and I also re-posting this great Free Printable we had for July 4th back in 2012 after I realized it would also work great for a Memorial Day card. Left click on it with your mouse until it gets as large as possible and right click it to save to a picture file.
We had our long weekend last weekend and I also went on my annual Mother-Daughter Road Trip with my 3 daughters. This year they voted for Seattle and we had a fantastic time.  

DT Member Elizabeth Lincoln is also Canadian and used our Big Dog Digital Set to pay tribute to her mother who was enlisted in the British Army during World War 2 with this fantastic Bulldog card she created.  You can see the detail in the coloring is amazing and look how she added a little flag.

I also love this hound dog birthday card by Elizabeth, she also created using our Big Dog Digital Stamp set and how she used the party hat stamp on the set but made the hat 3D.

Graphic designer Cindy van Koll came by for a visit yesterday with her new little puppy her husband bought her. They named him Beau and look how freaking adorable he is!! I used the 'Best Little Dog' and 'Kisses' postmark stamps from our Little Dog Digital Stamp Set to make them this jumbo sized magnet card for their fridge.  It's 7 x 11" so I probably need to shrink it!

I used the Paint Bucket tool in Photoshop Elements to digitally color the stamp blue and green. All of the pieces you want to color need to be closed or the 'paint will leak out'. If you look at the red arrow below you will see an opening. I made the pencil tool 2 pixels wide and drew a line to close the opening a few others and then dropped in the colors.

Check out this amazing Bird Gift Box by DT Leader Kathy Clement, she created using our Bird and Blossom Creative Digital Scraps - yep - the regular ones sold out so they are a 4 page download now and much more versatile.

DT Member Vicki Chrisman used her sewing machine to stitch this pretty seed pack card using an image and paper from CD 2 Creating with Vintage Illustrations.  You can also see some wonderful wedding photos she took of her niece Neely's wedding.

Look at this beautiful pastel duck card by DT Member Michele Kovack she created with our Animal Party Clear Stamps on sale for $12.50 and colored using Copic markers and the faux rain drops she added.

Here's a pretty garden birthday card by DT Member Darlene Pavlick, that she created using images and paper from our Garden Download Set.

I missed this Digital Photo Tag Tutorial by DT Member Sheila Rumney last Friday and now she has a new Photoshop Friday Tutorial on creating a decorative checkbook cover. You can also check out our  Tutorial Folder on Pintrest.

We have NEW adorable Puppy Printable Greeting Cards coming this Monday!

I hope you have a super fabulous weekend!
