I have a New Love and a Charisma Cards Challenge

Happy Wednesday (Hump) Day!
I'll be really honest, I was a scrapbooker long before I was a cardmaker. When digital scrapbooking came into view I was totally against it. How could a paper crafter be satisified without the feel of the paper and the glue under their fingers.
So when I started to make cards and heard about digi stamps I was skeptical to say the least. But after I realised that you printed out an outline image and color it yourself I thought I may give it a try.
I wondered if the ink would stand up to my Copic's but was willing to give it a try. I used my GP cardstock in my Kodak printer and after my first printing I was in heaven! I bought images from Cuddly Buddly and can't wait for more! The Kodak ink works beautifully with Copic's, it dries quickly and not a smear/smudge/run to be found. Now I'm on the look out for more digi images as they are cheap, cute and give me immediate gratification unlike waiting for my online order.
I highly suggest finding some and trying some for yourself :)

The Charisma Cards Challenge was to use pink and brown and as that color combo is a favorite of mine I just had to use it.
I used Annie Sitting from Cuddly Buddly and I love her! The papers were from DCWV The Garden Party stack.
The sentiment is Cloud 9 and the flowers are Paper Studio from Hobby Lobby and the brown ones are Prima. The border punch is Martha Stewart.

So I hope you'll give digi stamps a try, there are so many wonderful companies using this method of art and it gives us immediate gratification at the touch of a button :)

Aww, this is adorable. The scallops strips for the top & bottom made a nice frame/stage effect for the layout, plus the image is so cute too!
