Exciting news huh?!

I am over the moon with excitement about the latest announcements concerning my company My Time Made Easy ™ LLC! Be sure you read all about it.

These changes and additions have been a long time coming, and I hope it inspires YOU to get crafty, more often. Now you know why (despite family stuff) I’ve been EXTRA busy!

Be sure you check out the latest Pretty Impressions Digital Release <—CLICK HERE!

Now with the latest announcements or a NEW! Release of Digital Images on the 15th of each month, I am going to share a sample using each of the sets over the next couple of days!

Be sure to keep checking in for them!

First up: Got Carrots?

This gift set uses the NEW! Bizzy Bunny Digital Stamp Set!

I love this image, as Spring is in it’s way, and I longed for some images to color! I love the boy bunny with his barrow of carrots! Add a bow to the head and it could become a girl too 😀 These bunnies (3 new images in total) are perfect for Easter, without being limited to a holiday. I love image versatility!

Is this gift set not adorable?!

I wanted to package up these homemade Carrot Cake Cookies, bottoms dipped in white chocolate-YUM! Perfect for Spring, or any occasion where a sweet treat is in order.

Going with the carrot theme I used the Any Way You Slice It template to make a “carrot” box!

This was SO easy to do! I printed the Dotted Stripes Collection 1 (Peach) to further enhance my “carrot” design. Super quick.

For the top of the carrot (Any Way You Slice It template) I used the latest release of the Abra-Bow-Dabra to make the greenery on the top of my carrot box!

I sponged the edged, and just omitted the center curl, and VOILA! Perfect carrot topper!

I then used the Simple Seedling (card insert), re-sized to create my tag!

I also added the sentiment “For some bunny sweet” to it, to top it off 😀

Now you are looking at the same image of Bizzy Bunny which was used on the card, and on my Any Way You Slice It template tag!

The card on the right, is the size this digital image opens up in. The tag on the left, I resized it to fit 😀

Part of the BEAUTY of using digital stamps is the ability to resize, and flip/mirror the images. I could have digitally colored them as well to mass produce my gift or card, if needed, but I opted to hand color them with my copic markers.

I did digitally color my sentiment on the card:

I LOVE that sentiment from the Bizzy Bunny set !

With my mom undergoing chemo, and others helping out, I think it is perfect for her to give to those who have been helpful to her 😀 I’m trying to make as many gifts as I can for her to send off to all the people she wants to thank! Thankfully being a papercrafter comes in handy more often than not! Everyone comes to me for gifts in the family! LOL! I love it.

So, back to the card…instead of trying to use my markers (in select colors) to ink parts of the sentiment, I used my photo editing software to digitally color it. Perfect every time! No bleeding of colors, or unevenly inked areas, just makes the PERFECT  impression every time! (I did this on the Carrot tag too)

I’m not saying I don’t love my acrylic images, but often I do wish for more options with images, and that is why we often offer both options.

That being said, we are offering select sets in DIGITAL ONLY. Seems most of our customers prefer that method, and this will allow me to offer more choices, more often 😀 It also cuts down on your storage of images! We all know how quickly we can run out of space. I like to fill my craft room with STUFF, like cardstock, markers, embellishments, and ribbon, rather than tons of image ;D Plus it is easier to see what you OWN when you just open your digital stamp folder, and SEE all the images laid out before you, without pilfering through stacks of boxes, or CD cases.

The card in itself has a lot of dimension 😀

The head, tail, pocket/carrot, carrot sign, 2 carrots and greenery are all cut out, colored, and up on dimensionals for some added WOW! I just printed the image twice 😀

I then added the fence which I cut using a punch. Super cute eh? I just used my Copic marker to add to the dimesnion!

Now you can start to see all these possibilties from these new images. We have LOTS of digital stamps to choose from, so check them out –>HERE!

Well that does it for me today.

Please return tomorrow for a sample using one of the other NEW! Digital Pretty Impressions images we just released!

Until then
