Wait til you see this month's NEW DIGIS at CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS.

I love Fall...don't you?! I just had to play with these digis the moment I laid my eyes on them. My first sample is using the set SUNSHINE & SMILES. Just the name makes me smile.

I worked in Microsoft Publisher and inserted my image. Then I clicked on the little tool bar that appears on the page when you are clicked on your image. I selected Wash Out. That gave me the light grey. Then I inserted my sentiment over the top and kept it black. I used the png images so I could layer.

I printed the image again in black and colored, cut out, sponged and popped up just the sunflowers and two leaves.

This sample uses the NEW RELEASE SWEET & SPICY. Another great set and title by Deedee.

Again I put my images and sentiments where I wanted them using text boxes in Microsoft Publisher. I washed out the sentiments just like I did in my first card.

For the paper pieced apple. I copy and pasted an apple and printed it out. Then I cut a small piece of my patterned paper, put removable tape on the back and placed it right over the apple. Then ran it through the printer the printer prints the apple on the patterned paper. Sooooooooooo cool. I use this tecnique all the time. Great way to use small pieces of paper.

I cut out my apple, sponged the edges and popped up. I did the same for the leaf.

Lisa, I just looked through your blog posts - I'm lovin' all of your cards and projects. I have subscribed to your blog through emails so I will get it whenever you post. Thank you so much for all the comments you have left me on my blog!!
I've been out of town for the past week - went to Seabrook, Washington - on the coast south of Moclips. I haven't stamped in over a week and am getting withdrawals!

Oh Lisa, these are two FAB-U-LOUS cards!!! I love 'em! As long as I've been working with digis, I seem to keep doing the same thing over and over. You've inspired me to try something different now! You clever girl.
