Thank You card Using Cricut Artbooking On The Inside

DT Project For Tammy's Scrapin Corner Challenge #73 - Use A Digi

Hello everyone.  I have been very busy trying to create and publish my Cricut Artbooking videos so all of you will know how to use it when it comes out on August 1, 2013.  I have been having so much fun with this cartridge.  I plan to create more scrapbooking pages; but time seems to be getting away from me lately.  I have always heard that time flies the older you get; and now I know it is very true.  I wonder why it feels that way.  Is it because as children; we couldn't wait to grow up so we could do adult things and as adults we want to stay young a little while longer?

It is time to create something quick and easy for Tammy's Scrapin Corner - Challenge 73 - Use A Digi.  This is a fun challenge and I hope all of you will create something and enter for a chance to win.  It would be even more fun for those who have never attempted to create with Digi stamps.  I have two video's on my YouTube Channel.  The first one shows you how to use Digi Stamps with Microsoft Word and the other shows you how to color Digi stamps.  If you don't own a Digi stamp; just type in the words "free Digi stamps" on and you will find lots of them.  If you aren't familiar with coloring with markers; then find one you can use as a black and white.  That is how I started using them.  Just have fun. 
Our sponsors this week is Bugaboo Stamps and Deasy Designs.  Be sure to visit their websites for some fabulous Digi stamps.  If you would like to be a Guest Designer on Tammy's Scrapin Corner; just add GDT behind your name when you enter this weeks challenge.  Good luck to all of you. 
I decided to do a CAS card this week using Bugaboo Thank You Tulip Block.  I love this Digi and wanted to try it out.  I also pulled out my embossing folders that I bought a while back and decided to try one of the new ones.  I combined my CTMH markers and Copic Markers to create this card.  I used my new Cricut Artbooking cartridge for the inside sentiment.  The cardstock is actually purple; but the color isn't very clear in these pictures.  The markers are colored with purple also; but they look blue in the pictures.  I hope you enjoy it.

  34. Gloria, nicely done here. This card is just as beautiful on the inside as it is on the outside. I actually love the tamer cover and then BAM all the gorgeous flowers just bursting on the inside and all while adorned with the most luscious ribbon.

    You read my mind. Just the other day I was telling a crafty buddy of mine
    that I thought dryer sheets should be the new 'cheesecloth' and here you go
    making a ribbon out of it...LOVE that tip and your steampunk owl tag is
    fantastic!!! Excellent use of spooled items as well. :)

    Thank you so much for playing along with us at Top Tip Tuesday and sharing
    your talents with us!

    1. Thanks for the lovely comment Lisa. I think the second paragraph is meant for someone else. I didn't use dryer sheets to make my ribbon and I don't know what the steampunk owl tag means. Sorry - I don't think it was me; so I can't take credit for it. LOL!! Have a fabulous weekend. Hugs, Gloria

  35. Absolutely beautiful, and incorporates your fave PURPLE, hugs Jackie C
