Card Design: Happy 4th Birthday Imagine That Digistamp!!!

Shop Our Digis!

Hey folks! Imagine That! Digistamp turns 4 years old this month and we've decided that this is the perfect opportunity to take a little walk down memory lane. Over two posts yesterday and two today, we are showcasing creations made with our DT members' favourite sets along with a sample of their very first project! Be sure to head on over to the blog to check out the creations thus far!

Here are my contributions! I hope you enjoy this little trek down memory lane!

I officially became a DT Member in December, 2014.

My very first project was this card:


 You can find the details for this card HERE.

Now here is a card made with my favourite set in the store...

I really love the moonlit lake in one of the coloured versions from this set. There is just something so romantic about these beautiful swans. The bow tie on the male and the flowers intertwined on the female's neck are such sweet additions. I also love the heart shape that their heads make. It is an image that simply exudes love. I've paired it with a pretty paper from one of my favourite digi paper sets from the store simply re-colouring it to match the colour of the water.

Notes:

Challenges I am hoping to enter..


You have until April 6th to enter our challenge which should give you lots of time to get a creation done. Remember the theme is Anything with Wings. I really hope that you will be able to join us. You can enter twice per challenge and of course MUST follow all the challenge requirements that are posted for each challenge (please click HERE to become familiar with all the rules). In addition to all the typical criterion, you MUST USE A DIGITAL OR STAMPED IMAGE to qualify for the drawing (unless stated otherwise). We would absolutely love to see you use a Pattie's Creations (PC) image on your card, but you are allowed to use other images. If you do use a PC image, you will gain an extra entry in the draw and will have a better chance to WIN!  Easy Peasy right!

Pop over to the challenge blog and check out what my fabulous teammates have offered up for inspiration. Oh and don't forget...Pattie offers up a new freebie the first Friday of the month and it will remain up for approximately two weeks; so, be sure to pop over and check it out as well!

Until next time,
