Welcome to the Digi Bells Blog Hop for August 2015



It's blog hop time again!
I absolutely love the Digi Bells blog hops, don't you?
  
If you are hopping along with The Digi Bells.
I am your first stop!
Today we are showing off a couple of Elisabeth Bell's adorable digital stamps.  They are all available for purchase in Elisabeth Bells Digital Collection today.  But you may also have a chance to win YOUR CHOICE of digi for yourself, just for hopping along and leaving comments along the way.  


The first card I have to share with you is featuring the adorable little guy called "Goggles"
I still remember when he was first released from Belles 'n Whistles a few years ago...
He was assigned to me to showcase during his release..
I had fun with him then, and NOW... I'm still having fun...
I just LOVE that he's now a Digital Stamp.

I have to laugh a little....  "Goggles" was first released in March of 2010....  More than 5 years ago.... and this was my blog hop card back then....  I think I've definitely come a LONG WAY since then.


HAAAAA - What Hot a Mess!  LOL
BUT is he CUTE OR WHAT???
And LOOK... There is Mr. Sun....  LOL


This handsome little devil was colored using Copics.  Yes, my "towel" color and "swimming shorts" colors DO NOT match... but they do not match on purpose.  I don't know any little boy who has an exact matching towel and bathing suit, do you?  LOL 
All of my fun little "things" on this card were created using my Silhouette.... I designed them myself, and then cut them. (the fancy frame, the Sea Shells, and even the Goggles) I think I have more fun making my own designs than using ones that I can buy from any of the SVG type shops...  Unless it ends up being something extravagant, then I don't think I will attempt designing that... LOL

Next we have the sweet "Tania Baking" Digi... Also once a Belles 'n Whistles Stamp....  I know I must sound like a broken record when I say... 
"I LOVED HER THEN, and I STILL LOVE HER NOW."  
But how can I resist her sweetness?



Every one of my papers came from my scraps for this fun card, I've colored Tania, using my Copics.
I've been busy playing with my Silhouette Cameo again.
I designed, and then cut my Oven mitt, my Sentiment, my Apron, and even my little utensils inside the pocket of the Apron. =)

As for the card shapes, and Tania herself, those were just hand cut...  No special machines for those things. LOL

This brings me to Your Next Hop Stop....  
It's time to go and see what kind of magic the talented Valou has created for you today.
But before you leave, 
don't forget to share a comment here for a chance to win YOUR CHOICE of Digi from this months release.

These are both adorable (or maybe I should say all THREE are adorable) -- it always helps immensely when you start out with a fabulous image and then the rest of the card design just kind of speaks for itself. Thank you for some great inspiration, Lynda.

Yes, you've come a long way, but the first blog hop card you did with Goggles is cute as can be and your coloring was done well back then, too! These cards are adorable. I love your choices of embellishments on each of them and I love the colors. I have to admit to loving that little "Goggles" image, though, and would pick that little man for my prize if I had the opportunity! I love your hops...you gals all use the same images and you spark so much in my mind as I look at each of your creations. Hugs, Gail
