Bring on the Fall

I love the fall time, the trees changing, the air crisp, the hustle of the new school year starting and the knowledge of the holidays coming around again.
This wreath digi is super gorgeous ... it's not in the store yet but soon I hope. If you followed us last year when all h#ll broke loose it was one of the first free downloads RG offered, the man was generous even in his darkest moment, this says a lot about him.
It's so fun to color and create with, I used tombow markers to watercolor the image!
This was the amazing challenge Melinda created for us in the RG Studio Community page, come join us and experience lots of love and comradery. There will be a new challenge on Tuesday!

Foxy Fall

Yes it's our first official blog hop for the amazing launch of the RG Studio 360 new website!!!! Whoo hoo ... I am so excited and thrilled to be part of RG Studio 360! Everyone on the design team was able to use this cutie patootie download Foxy Fall! I am so ready for fall, of course is Arizona we aren't getting out our sweaters yet more like we are able to enjoy walking outside lol!
Here's my creation:
First I made a Thanksgiving card using the newly released of today... Foxy Fall!
 Close up so you can see that digital stamp images are just like using stamped images ... only I don't have to worry about the ink being even or blurring ... and I water-colored these images! I just download the digi PDF and save it on a flash drive ... then I drive to Staples or Office Depot and ask them to print it on my Neenah 80lb cover stock ... so easy!

Next I made little name place cards for us for Thanksgiving ... whoo hoo I am getting stuff done ahead of time!

I have so much to be thankful for this year ... so a big shout out to Claudia and her family!

Love to hear your thoughts so leave a comment to win my most favorite download so far from RG Studio 360: Winter Rose

This is happening ... whoo hoo join us tomorrow ... 11 am California time!
I created a Fangtastic card for this weeks RG Studio 360 Community Page... hope you join us there soon! This digital stamp image has the cutest bats ever... you get like nine on the download and I only used one!

Sometimes people want to know how I create my back grounds... pretty easy ... I just cover a card panel with gesso and then after it drys I add sprays ... I like Art Anthology and Dylusions sprays ... I spray them on a  piece of acetate and then smooch them to the card front panel and  let them dry!
Love that you are checking out my blog... stay tuned for some extra exciting news in the near future regarding RG Studio 360! Digi I used is called Fangtastic!

RG Studio 360 Community!

You are so welcome to join us in the Community FB page! We are now hosting a challenge every week, our Studio Designer Melinda Beltran is hosting it and wowsers she's doing an amazing job!
This is last week's challenge:
Mood Board Challenge! Love it!

This is the card I created for the challenge! Created using copics and one of the angels from Joyful Noise! The mirror paper was perfect for capturing a glow behind the angel!
This is  watermarked version of the digi download... otherwise known as a digital stamp image! They are all super cute and what I love about these digital images is they are larger and you get more images than if you bought a stamp set!

Sunny Sunflowers!

I so love this months Bloom Box... and I have been using it like gangbusters! Perfect stamp for all my Virgo Birthdays ... of which I am tons of Virgo friends ... wowsers! 
The first card... I used the Silk Technique... you drop in Silks in a about 1/2" of water, the pigment floats on top of the water and you scoop it up by laying the watercolor splash sheet on top! It gives a gorgeous background! The sky looks abstract! 
The card below ... I use our gorgeous PanPastels... they are so easy to use, you just sponge up some chalk from pan with the SoftTool and brush it across the cardstock, which I stamped the background with our Hexagon Print and Clear Pigment ink, the chalk sticks like a charm to the Clear Pigment ink and I love the finished result!
