whimsical wednesdays anything goes

happy wednesday! you know what that means.. yep time for a new WW challenge :)  and some fun and exciting news.
our super creative cindy  is making digi stamps! YAY cindy   she has  shared them first with the DT , neener neener ;)
 very lucky you....shes also sponsoring this challenge. 1 random winner will win 3 digis of hers. so make sure you play along for your chance to win!
and be sure to go check out what the rest of the DT did with the digis. we dont get to preview each others work so im always as excited and floored as you each week.
these stamps are just so darned cute way to go cindy!  i couldnt just pick out one to use so i picked out several. 
we also have a great sponsor in prairie bird boutique. patsy makes and sells this INCREDIBLY beautiful crinkle ribbon. thank you so much for sponsoring us patsy :) i LOVE your ribbon :)

and lastly.. i have a very special guest designer today. he really loved cindys stamps and asked could he join on in with us. of course i said a big yes to that :)
 grab your extra big cuppa whateva  cuz this is going to be veeery picture heavy :)

we'll start off with my super cute g/d....bug. unfortunatly i cant photo him as hes my 3 year old daycare boy, but i can his marvelous project.prepare to be amazed :)
                                                       bug chose to use the" happy halloween" digi
he opted to use generic colored pencils. he also added stickles "cuz stars arent stars unless they sparkle" 
wasnt that just an awesome piece of art! way to go bug and thank you for being my super duper guest designer :)

i chose 4 of cindys digis.  first i'll show you a set of cards i made then go through the details individually

                                        the first card is using the happy halloween image.
i used SU water color pencils, marvy markers and on bugs advice lots of stickles on this. for the eyes i used viva decor pearl pen in black. the photo looks funny but in the real they are nice and round pearl shaped, i swear!
i added a few extra die cut stars and a moon  using my cricut and paper dolls cartridge.  i also added lots of stickles to the stars. brushed with colorbox fluid chalk for a purply/black night sky
per bugs artistic advice. the idea to put a foam stickies under some was my own  idea ;) i did get bugs approval on this :)

i dont have a computer progam to help with resizing and my printer..well. i wont place blame where it shouldnt be.. i do not have nor want the know how on resizing etc. that kind of stuff frustrates me and bores me to death, so the wording happy halloween printed wrong so i just snipped it off then added my own text. i hope thats ok cindy ;)
                                               heres card 2   using the digi "scarecrow"
her hair isnt so green looking ITR, i swear :)  i used cloud9 raindots for the bubbles around her cauldron. and glammed her duds up with stickles.

i added 2 stamped spiders, the chandelier is from my cricut and home decor cartridge. i added some rhinstones to it. do ya see the purple ribbon on the tag ..that sparkly fun is from our sponsor patsy at prairiebirdboutique. oooh its so pretty! i wanted to show that i used some dimension here on this too. i paper pieced the broom a little too and cut slits to make it look used. i also added some cotton to look like webs. looking at it now ... it look like cotton.. oh well ;)
 another dimension view. i love those sticky foamy things :) 
                                             ok now for card 3.....this is using the digi  ""ghost pumpkin"

isnt this one just too cute too! the ghastly cute trio (and grass cut)  on the left  is the actual digi . the  mummy,skull in the grass, owl ,   moon and candy corn  are all extras from a paper pack (recollections). ( the b/g paper is cosmo) the tree is from my cricut and paperdolls cartridge. dontcha just love the look on the ghosts face look how the mummys is the same, thats why i just had to add him :)  i just inked up some with colorbox fluid chalk. 

here i just used a dollar bin stamp. 
 ok.. last one for ya here.. i used the digi "pumpkin" on this gift bag ..3 times.
                                   so adorable huh..see why i couldnt just use him once :) 

in this i added patsys awesome crinkle ribbon. im sure i told ya already  i LOVE LOVE LOVE  her ribbon! you will too. i have other colors that you will see when the spooky season is over :) the one i used today is a gorgeous orange :) i also added a lil felt tag with a paper tag that i wrote hey pumpkin in my chicken scratch. also some straw rafia stuff, wooden button, twine flowers.. yeah i know you can see it all youre not dummies :)  i think this turned out pretty darned cute.. thank you so much cindy for letting us showcase your awesome digis girl :) i had a lots of fun playing with them and hope you like what me and my sweet lil guest designer did with them :)

dont forget to stop on by whimsical wednesdays and check out what the rest of the dt has done with cindys digis AND  patsys crinkly ribbon goodness.  be sure to stop by  prairie bird boutique  you will fall in love with this ribbon too. thank you so much patsy  and cindy for sponsoring us  and allowing us to use your beautiful crinkly and sparkly ribbon and digis .
