Saturday Tutorial - Coloring faces and way


Hello fellow crafters!

I am starting a series of videos for you all on techniques and medias
to color your digital stamps. There are so many products
out there, possibilities are endless!

I did get requests on how I color my cheeks,
like on the following card:

So this week, the coloring medium will be Copic Markers

and I will use "Sitting Penny" just like on the card above.

So head over to Digital Delights Tutorials to see the video :)

Happy Crafting!

Its almost August and that means that its preview time for our August Clear Dollar Stamps release!! It is with sadness however that after a lot of consideration that I have decided to step down as Illustrator at Clear Dollar Stamps. Time has become very short in trying to achieve everything that I am doing and have had to make the decision to free up some time!! Of course this may be the last set I am illustrating for CDS but that does not mean that the existing sets will not be available. I hope you will continue to support Clear Dollar Stamps and I thank Lori and the DT for giving me the wonderful opportunity to have worked with them over the past several months!!

So onto our preview…….

Guest DT an a bit of Dairy Delights!!

Its Guest Designer Day and I have the pleasure of introducing you to the multi talented Fiona!!


My name is Fiona, I am fortyish and married with 2 children...Michael 18 and Holly 12 going on 25!! I work in the HR department of a very large entertainment company which I really do enjoy. I used to work partime time but then almost 5 years ago had to go full time due to my hubby being made redundant. I have always been in to some kind of arts and crafts but took up cardmaking a few years ago and one day I will win the lottery and I will be able to do it full time and not work!! In my younger days my life was gymnastics and trampolining. I gave up gymnastics when I became pregnant with Michael but went back to trampolining and did coaching for several years until not so long ago when I had to give that up due to a back injury and getting too old for it. Now my regular followers can see what I look like but please do not zoom in to have a close look at my wrinkles (this is fo you two - Faye and Linds cos I know you will lol)

Hope you can visit my blog and leave me some lovely comments.

I sure will be visiting Fiona!! Thanks for sharing your work with use this week.  You can visit Fiona at her blog Fi's Cards and Crafts

Now onto some more Dairy Delights with our July Acrylic stamp set from Clear Dollar Stamps
Cindy made this beautiful card with the table laden with ice cream treats!! So very pretty!!

and here's one from Lisa using both
