My first Digi stamp

I have noticed people having been using digi stamps and some of them lookedreally I decided to have a go...those who know me on't be surprised to know that my first digi stap is a teddy bear..:).
the digi stamp is from Squigglefly, after resizing him in pohotoshop elements 8, I printed him out and coloured him with twinkling H2O's, I then layered him onto a piece of black card. I got a piece of red card, embossed it the Hearts and tore one edge. I adhered the red cardstock and adhered it to a Green card, then layered my bear ontop. I then used rubber stamps to my words ( don't know the brand..I have had since not long after I started other words thay are off the, I then layered them onto black card, added some foam squares and attached them to my card..lastly I used a Fiskars heart punch to make a few red hearts..

2nd Christmas card for 2011

this is another card I made out of the freebie kit in Quick cards Issue 79. and the last..I did not like using the foil sheets that came in the kit, I found them too flimsy and when I used the embossing template that came in the kit and used an embossing tool I found the end result something like a dogs dinner,,,so after a bit of fidling I used my cuttlebug with the template and achieved a better result, I also used a spellbinders fancy tag on this card with the foil, on my previous card with this foil I used the freebie template and a cuttle bug embossing folder,,I will not be rushing out to buy the anyway here is my card..
