New Release Friday!

Hello Friends! It's Friday and that means that there are new digital stamps at MelJen's Designs! Melissa has some really cute digital stamps for you this week. Just look at these beauties!

 Can't you just hear the birdsong? These little darlings are ready for Spring!

Yay! More of Melissa's yummy cupcakes! I love the fluffy frosting and that sweet little cherry!

After giving it a lot of thought, I decided to feature the adorable Little Bird's Shower. I really wanted to make a card with each of the stamps, but there are only so many hours in a day! Here is my card...

I had so much fun with this image! After printing it onto my favorite card stock, I die cut it, colored it with Copics and added the clouds. Then I paper pieced the little shower curtain. Next, I colored the pearls with a Copic marker, placed them over the bubbles and sprinkled glitter onto the bubbly foam.  I used lots of glitter pen and a couple of tiny twinkles for a little more sparkle! I added a few inked Prima flowers to draw attention to the bitty blossoms in the background paper. I did a bit of stitching on this one too, to emphasize the stitching on the shower curtain. And finally, I slid a doily behind my ribbon strip, to add some softness.

All of the digital stamps are available now in the Shop. And don't forget to stop by the Design Team blog to be inspired by the other members. They have some very nice creations to share with you.

Oh my goodness, Barb, you hit this one straight out of the park! What a fantastic card. I love every detail you've lovingly added. The clouds? are going to have to remind me how you create those. The colored pearls, great bubbles, the stitching adds great texture...I learn so much by looking at your cards! Now I can't wait to see what you do with that great new cupcake. Hee, hee!
