Today is our last post for May's Guest Designer, Shana Dahl! We really enjoyed seeing her talent grace our blog again! She's uber talented and just a delight to work with!
THANK YOU, SHANA!!
Shana fell in love with the new Pappa Bear image from yesterday's release and knew exactly what she wanted to do with it! The awesome ability to 'tweek' digistamps is the highlight of Shana's card, today! She used Melissa's Pappa Bear image and altered it by moving the one little bear over closer to the Pappa Bear. And this is exactly what Melissa had in mind when designing this image, for YOU to be able to make the image work for you! so I am glad to see how Shana took advantage of this feature of altering the digistamp to suit her creative needs!
Isn't her card just adorable? I am sure her hubby is going to appreciate this card from their kids on Father's Day this year! She used the Number One Dad Stitched digi on the left of the inside of her card as well! And she even added a personal (AND HILARIOUS!) sentiment on the inside right! Just adorable!
See more of Shana's talent at her blog HERE, Two Cute Little Monsters! Her creations will surely get your creative mojo-moving!
It's time to go BACK to the PAST with some of Melissa's oldie but goodies!
This first one is by me, Nicole! Now this digi, Mailed with Love, isn't 'THAT' old, but it's not exactly 'NEW' either! So, I thought I would share it with you again! It was fun to color and perfect for a love letter or a simple 'HELLO!' like this one!
Snuggle Time Boy is a popular digi of Melissa's. I have seen it in blogland quite a bunch so I thought I would color it myself! This is a sweet image, perfect for a little boy's birthday or that thumb-sucker in your life!
and black together so I had to show it off for her again! Just darling!
Well, there you have it! Your Friday walk down memory lane! I hope you found something new you hadn't seen before! To see all of Melissa's rubber and digital stamps go see her corner of the Whimsy Stamps Store!
Of course, we have an amazing design from YOU as well! There were only a few entries using Meljen's Designs in our Graduation challenge - remember if you would like to win our Top 5 or our Inspiration badges, you MUST use a Meljen's Designs image! There are lots and lots of freebies available for you to play with, too! You can find some HERE and HERE and HERE :)
So, after we picked our Top 5, there was one fabulous entry left for inspiration and that is......
