Sketches by Carly With The Paper Shelter

Hello to all my fellow crafters and followers!   Most of you already know I am a Guest Designer for the summer with Sketches by Carly.  I have been having so much fun!  I had never used a digital stamp until I became a guest designer.  I didn't realize what I was missing until I joined their team.  I have been playing with digital stamps from The Paper Shelter this past weekend; who is also the sponsor for Sketches By Carly for the next two weeks.  We are given a wonderful opportunity to choose our favorite sketch by Carly to create our cards this week.  I have chosen Sketch 57; which is one of my favorites.

Carly is a very talented 13 yr. old that creates wonderful card sketches every two weeks for us card lovers to use.  Be sure to check out Sketches by Carly and enter to win fabulous prizes!!

I decided to create two cards using the same already colored Digi stamp from The Paper Shelter titled "Gyspy Dance".  The first one is reduced to a 3 x 3 size.  The second one is using the colored Digi Stamp at the original size; which is a 6 x 6 size.  I wasn't sure how it would look; but I think I prefer the larger one.  The colored background is teal; but for some reason my camera made it blue.  There are several different files with each one of the digi stamps with so many choices.  You can choose one and color yourself if you would prefer to do that.

The Paper Shelter Digi Stamp - "Gypsy Dance"
