DT Spotlight - Cely

Today's spotlight is brought to us by Cely of Hawaii Paper Party!

Aloha guys! Cely here and its my turn in the spotlight this month! Figured I'd start getting ready for Christmas since I'm always behind every year! I used the image called Santa Owl. Isn't he so cute? I printed a bunch of him on one sheet of blending card and colored them all in with Copics.  I used all Stampin Up products to make the tags.  I punched him out with a 2.5" circle punch and popped them up on tags I made with the SU tag topper punch and some retired Gumball Green cardstock.  I stamped the Merry Christmas on some Crumb Cake and banner cut the edges.  I also stamped a "to: from:" and added Cherry Cobbler twine! 

Super easy to do and now I have at least 9 tags for large Christmas presents!

Hope you enjoyed my spotlight! To visit me and see more of my work, visit

Cely these tags are just too cute!  I love how simple they are!  Great job!  Make sure you swing by Cely's blog and see what other goodies she's made!!

Mahalo Plenty!

This is the lovely butterfly bear, I have gone for lilac this time. Coloured her with lilac & yellow tones in copics. Matted this on in a pearl card which I have embossed with a butterfly folder. Then on to butterfly paper & the base in flower card. The other extras are the flowers,butterfly,sentiment & the satin bow. You can get this image & many more from the store here.

Love the purples in this card Tracey! I am always impressed by people who do purple cards because that is the color I struggle with the most!!  Make sure you swing by her blog and let her know what you think!

DT Spotlight - Leanne

Hey everyone!
Happy September 1st!!  Today is the first Monday of the month which means spotlight time.  It also happens to be holiday for us in the USA, it's Labor Day!  Woo Hoo!!  A well deserved one me thinks.   Have you gone through our Halloween blog hop yet?  If you have terrific, hopefully you've left comments on everyone's blog.  If not, you have some time left, the hop ends on 9/7 and we'll announce the winners on 9/9.  Click HERE to get started.

Now let's get on with my spotlight for today.  If you haven't already noticed, owner and illustrator, Ruth Johnson not only created some adorably cute images for Halloween and Christmas, but she added some awesome sea animals to the mix!!  I am so excited to share one of the new sea animals today, as it was one that I specifically asked for.  She did an awesome job putting her cuteness stamp on this digi...  This is my card featuring Narwhal Love I...

Cute yah?  I love how squishy they turned out.  This is actually one image that I printed out two more times in different sizes.  For fun I used different colors on these guys.  To create the sea I used Distress inks, an embossing folder, a wave border die, Stickles and some Perlen liquid. The wave border was layered on the bottom and one of the narwhals fit perfectly inside it.  Using the Perlen pen gives these guys the wet look I was going for.  Love that stuff!

There are two more narwhals in the store as well as some cute sea honus (turtles) you can pick up. Don't forget in honor of Labor Day, Ruth is offering up the following coupon code:
  • 15% off coupon, use code 'Labor15' at check out
  • Offer good between 8/29 and 9/5
  • Can be used on your purchase for both clear and digital stamps
