Happy Wednesday
This weeks Guest DT is.....
Rebekah from Berrylicious

Here's alittle about Rebekah
My name is Rebekah. I am a 36yr old married mum of 3 beautiful children, 2 girls aged 11 and 9 and 1 crazy little boy aged 4!
I have been cardmaking for just under 3 years now. My sister first introduced me to scrapbooking about 5 years ago but it was when I discovered cardmaking that I became truly hooked!
I love colouring and creating romantic and pretty creations. I am completely florally obsessed and always go over the top with my embellishments, I'm certainly not a CAS girl!
I love rubber and digi stamps and am so incredibly lucky to be part of 8 design teams at the moment (including Kenny K, Saturated Canary and Pink Gem designs)
I adore crafting and love the community of the wonderful people I have met through my passion
Rebekah has used Digital Delights Mermaid Image for this wonderful Tag
Pop over to Rebekah's great blog for lots of inspiration as she has an amazing eye for detail!!!
Also, if you are a Team Edward fan like I am you can check out all the Edward eye candy Rebekah's has too!!
Thanks for joining us Rebekah!!!!!

So much to share

Hi guys and a very Happy Tuesday to everyone!

This is a lengthy post today, we have so much fun to share.
 First up it is release week here at Digital Delights, this coming Thursday!! Be sure not to miss it!
Exciting news!!!!!!!! We have a new tutorial artist!! I am thrilled to introduce you to Christine Garner who will be bringing us a new tutorial EVERY Tuesday...............

Hi my name is Christine Garner, and I live in Hickory, North Carolina. I have been married to a wonderful man Eric for 20 years. He has never said anything about the dining room becoming a craft room. I have two children which are both in the 8th grade. I am very proud of Josh and Kayla they are great kids. I started doing cards back in June 2011. I colored my first digital stamp and entered a challenge. Ever since then I have been hooked on digital stamps. I love how you can make them any size and combine them with other stamps to make a great card or other paper project. I mostly use colored pencils on my stamps. I got an art degree way back in 1987. That is where I learned how do color with them. I am showing my age aren't I. I hope you with love using the tutorials that will be posted here at Digital Delights By Louby Loo
Visit Christine at her blog Sweet Pea Cards

We have this fun new set of Licence Plate Sentiments which will be fab for all your valentine projects and also suitable for year round too!

Hostess Monday - Karen


Karen here bringing you the Hostess Monday project, I am so excited too!

A little bit about me, I work full time in administration, have 2 wonderful children and a fabby hubby who puts up with all my craft stash overflowing into the kitchen and the front room and up the stairs!!  My sister introduced me to card making about 2 years ago and I have not stopped since! I love blog land and have made some fantastic 'cyber' friends, its like a whole new world out there! 

So onto my little project for today.

I decided to make a male themed card, I know sometimes these can be a little tricky so I hope it brings you a little inspiration. I love making male cards and you can find lots on my blog, My Crafty Cupboard I would love you to pay me a visit and have a look.  I love layers so I have used lots for my card today and the bold, bright colours are perfect for this fabulous Pirate stamp.  I have coloured him with copics and edged him with a pale blue outline to make him 'pop'.

Little details add interest, so I gave Presley some treasure to hold, no wonder he is smiling!!

I inked up some die cut clouds and added some border detail and a sentiment from the Ahoy Matey Set.

Pirates are always great themes for children's cards and if you do want to do a girly version Prissy pirate is also available.

I hope you enjoyed my little project.

How to add a watermark

Hi Guys and welcome to our Saturday Showcase.
Todays tutorial is a little different than our normal post!
One of the services we offer at Digital Delights is custom watermarks and I receive lots of emails asking how to add a watermark to a project, so I decided to put together a tutorial using Photoshop Elements on how to do this. Hop on over to our tutorial page to see how it is done!
