This is what Roberta says about herself:-
Hello! I am Roberta from Prairie Fairy Designs. I am a new digital stamp company featuring artwork not only created by me but also my two kids, ages 8 and 11. They are featured on the site as the Fairy Princess and the Prairie Prince.
I have been an artist for as long as I can remember and have always loved to create. Two years ago my sister-in-law invited me to a rubber stamp party. I laughed and said "Maybe I will buy something if I can use it to stamp on canvases.". Needless to say, I was hooked! Two years later and a lot of learning about computers, I have finally accomplished my goal.
While digital stamping is relatively new in the papercrafting scene, it is what I believe to be such an amazing tool. Printed images have such clarity and vibrancy and gone is the need to re stamp an image because you didn't press hard enough or maybe you pressed too hard! They are also a lot easier to store and they can be reprinted over and over again. The fact that you can rotate and flip files, print them off the size of a postage stamp or as large as a scrapbook page makes them such a versatile medium. It is my sincere hope that I can help anyone who has hesitations about using digital images to embrace these amazing creative tools. If you have any questions about going digital, check out the site and the blog for more information. So head on over to http://www.prairiefairydesigns.com/ and check it out!
And heres my card that I created with one of Roberta's fabulous designs :-
My eldest daughter is a great fan of penquins and this is why it attracted me to it so guess whos going to receive this one for Christmas. Ive used this gorgeous little fairy with her friends as my image and printed it onto white card before colouring it in with my promarkers then used my Nestabilitie die No.8 to cut her out then with some red card Ive drawn around the edge of the die to create a mount for it, before sticking them together Ive used a red inkpad around the edge, I can see I smudged it on the left, hope it doesnt spoil it to much for you. The sentiment is one that I found in my stash, this was mounted onto a red double ended tag.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of red card, then one of three papers yet again from the Nitwit downloads, this one is a blue one with an all over sentiment pattern on, the second layer is a red one with snowflakes on and the third the same in blue, but on both of these Ive used my snowflake border punch from Martha Stewart, these were then stuck across my card in strips.
To finish of Ive created some snowflakes with some left over white card and dipped them into twinklets crushed diamond glitter and with a few snowflake sequins theyve been stuck across the top of my card.
