Win the contest with the FREE Digital Stamp Set

It's time to play along and WIN!

Grab your freebie digital illustration set called Jack O' Gnome from the and get to creating!  Post a pic on FB or IG with the hashtag #TLCpumpkingnome and we will draw the winner of a $10.00 store gift certificate!

The file has papers, sentiments and some super cute silhouette images too along with Jack of course!

This project was designed on last Thursday night's FB Live on TLC Designs FB page.

I used the design paper in the kit along with the image.  Combined with the following die sets also available in the store:  Celebrate Ribbon Die, flowers from the Oval Lily Frame (distressed a bit) and the stunning Aztec Sunshine circle die! 

I added a few little sparkly stars and a flower die cut in his hand.  The project was fun, quick and inspiring to design with all my wonderful friends on FB Live!

New Release Digital stamp set "Greetings"


Look who's brand NEW!

I mean the latest digital stamp set with this cute little newborn dragon!  The name of the digital stamp set is Dragon Baby "Greetings".  I named the image Greetings because of the 9 sentiments that come along with this adorable illustration!  

With the Paci or without!  Cover his egg with flowers or not!  Do you need a little boy baby card or invite or are you looking for an image that will guarantee a smile on the face of the recipient?  Spreading some Kindness or sending "Only Happy Thoughts"  this digital set says it all for any occasion!

On Thursday nights  FB Live broadcast, I make an adorable little project with some design paper from the "Sweet A Cake" digital papers collection with the brand new custom die called "Happy Dragonfly Circle".

I printed the paper with the digital sentiment included and adhered it to stock paper.  Then I repeated the process with the previously colored little dragon image from Procreate and fussy cut the image.  The designer paper was cut with the largest doily like die in the Happy Dragonfly circle set and I popped each layer up with some dots.

I wound a bit of twine around the die cut until I was happy with the way it looked and grabbed a flower die from the set and cut from stock.  Distress Ink color Blueprint Sketch was added to the edges of the flower petals.  With black Copic ink, I colored some white pearls and placed them in the center of the flower.  Then I repeated that process with a few tiny crystals and created a crystal banner across the top of the card in black to balance off the card.  

This was such a fun evening and the input from the viewers were so enjoyable!  I hope you love this little guy as much as I do?  Keep your eyes out for his three little Dragon friends in Poly too!  They're coming very soon!

Square up the cut Digi with Tammy Louise

Good Day Crafty Friends!

It's time to share one of my favorite Floral projects created live on FB just a while back!  The Happy Bouquet is the name of the Digital Stamp and it is simply and beautifully swag!  

Today's project is modeled after a designer technique I learned over 10 years ago or more but it's what I call an oldie but goody!  One that never gets old or goes out of style!

You can see the Youtube video of the FB LIVE here:  

I'm so happy to share my illustration with you today!

Two part Lavinia Project with Alcohol Ink background

I'm playing catch up today on my blog because between the store, crafting projects for the You tube lives on Thursday nights and regular life, it's harder to find time to blog!  However, all of my subscribers deserve to enjoy the journey so I'm going to catch up on some older projects and then get back to blogging on a regular basis!  

You can see the entire process yourself here on my Youtube Channel anytime! 

A few months ago on FB Live, I was admiring the yupo paper and alcohol ink projects from Lavinia Stamps and thought I would give it a go myself.  The color combinations are endless and the technique is really rather fun!  

I made some background sheets in one weeks Live and then the next week, I put the stamps into action!  Both of the crafty hours were relaxing and fun with all of the Live audience participation!  Thank you to all my regular viewers!  Here's what I designed!

 Isn't he the cutest!  I adore these stamps!  They bring the artist out in me! 

I cut him down and added him into the new "See You In The Center interactive die frame" (one of the NEWEST editions to the Interactive Die Section of the store and finished the project off with an adorable sentiment.

Thank you for stopping in and I'll see you next Thursday Night at 8PM EST on FB Live!

Wink a minute with Wanda! Digi papers and images together!

Hi Friends,  It's Sunday and I'm sharing a project from one of the You tube Live shows I do on Thursday Nights at 8:00 PM EST!  

Do you use Digi's?  Have you ever tried them?  Today I'm going to explain some of the things I personally like about digi's with you.  I don't speak for anyone else, these are just my opinions. 

So today I want to share some of the digi PRO'S I've come across, with all of my crafty friends. 

Digi's don't take up storage space
Digi's go everywhere your computer goes
Digital image sizes can be adjusted according to your needs
Digi's can be combined with other digi's before printing with no masking
Digital images can be flipped adjusting the orientation or direction
The price point of digital images are lower in general
The digital images are immediately delivered and there is no shipping cost

There are things about digital stamps that are a bit limiting.  However, all in all, they work wonderfully for me and the designer papers are the same as illustrations.  

I hope if you have NOT given them a chance, that this information will be considered and perhaps prompt you to give it a go! 

Krafty and Sweet digi papers
Sentiment from Whimsy Stamps
Circle frame die from Stash
Acetate from Stash

I love rubber/polymer stamps and digital images alike!  

I illustrated "Winking Wanda" with her cute little chubby face, wispy feathers and that little signature heart when I opened my e-commerce store in January 2020.  She was one of my first and quickly became a favorite!  

 This card is not the average A2 size card.  

I created this card with flaps that close over the front and the Acetate that wraps around the card and keeps the project closed.  On top of the acetate, I attached the little scalloped circle die with the cute digi image colored for a topper!  I stamped the Whimsy Stamps sentiment inside the card and secured the topper to a card base.  That's it!  Simple and Special!
