A plane, a snail, and some DIGI FUN!!!! MOJO108, SSS25, CCC61

Hello all, sorry it has been awhile since I posted. My creative mojo has just been bla. Well, I feel it may be coming back....HOORAY!!!! So I have 2 cards for you tonight. Both cards I created using digi stamps. I have had a few of these, and have been wanted to use them, but the printer ink has been out. My DH had a paper due, which means we got ink! So I was finally able to try these. Both digi images are from Sweet 'n Sassy. Korin has some great digi images available to purchase, plus she is giving a FREE image away on Thursdays! She also provided a great Q & A section about digis on her sight, so check it out HERE.

My first card tonight is using the Mojo Monday sketch this week. (MOJO108) The image is from the Sweet 'n Sassy digi set "Soar Above". I colored the plane in a Red, white, and blue "motif", so I used papers to go with that. I layered the plane onto some cloudy looking paper the I actually got from my 6 year old's scrapbook kit she had. I used a star punch to cut out 1 red and 1 "cloudy" star. I layered those onto the red CS strip. The next paper was some paper I made a while back using the shaving cream technique. I also added a set of r,w, & b brads to the top.
My next card I made using the Sweet Stop Sketch this week. I used the snail digi image from the Sweet 'n Sassy digi set "Snail & Friend".
I colored it in using water color crayons...which I discovered is NOT the best way to color in digis! As you can also see from the photo...I was kinda on a purple kick. I layered the snail image onto a purple circle. The patterned paper is from The Angel Company's A little whimsy collection. I added some stitching to this image as well for the Cupcake Craft Challenge this week. Which was to use buttons and stitching. This was the first time I have ever really sewed onto a card. Here is a close up of the stitching I did.

I pierced the paper first, then used some purple thread to add the stitches. I added some little purple buttons in the upper corner as well.

Well that is all the cards I have for today. I have been working like crazy to get the scrapbook I have been working on done as well. I only have like 3 pages left, which means this will be the first scrapbook I have ever really finished! Thanks so much for stopping by!
