You can just feel the magical frosty air of a fantasy Winter wonderland when you look at the Snowflake Sprite!  The Snowflake Sprite digi stamp is a beautiful fantasy nature design of an elegant snowflake themed Sprite.  She has magical snowflake-esque wings and wears a beautiful dress covered in sparkling snowflakes.  She has intriguing pupil-less "crystal" eyes you can customize in a lovely face surrounded by a wonderful contemporary hairstyle with adorable pointy ears peeking out and a large snowflake tiara.
 
 
Poinsettia Pixie evokes festive cozy feels of sitting by a crackling fireplace on a cold Winter's day with lots of rich warm hues or you can go outdoorsy nature for a magical Winter Wonderland feel, you do you!  The Poinsettia Pixie digi stamp is also a beautiful fantasy nature design of an elegant Poinsettia themed Pixie.  She has magical leaf inspired wings and feet and her dress is made of Poinsettia petals with tiny sprigs of holly and berries on her bodice.  She has a lovely face surrounded by a wonderful contemporary hairstyle with adorable pointy ears peeking out.

 
The Contemporary Snowflakes digi stamp set is a wonderful mini collection of 3 intricate snowflakes with a contemporary style.  Each Snowflake is a separate stand alone digi stamp that will allow you to create your own wonderful snowflake themed makes whether you use them as the main focal point or as backgrounds!  They are perfectly designed to match the Snowflake Sprite and Poinsettia Pixie and my exciting new product release up next!

"See the Miracle of a Single Flower"
Heart Blooms card
by GDT Camille
  
I'm delighted to have Camille guest designing for us today with her stunning card featuring my Heart Blooms digi stamp set.  Camille's creativity here demonstrates wonderfully how you can get so much more from your digi stamps by using them with your electronic cutting machines!
 
 
"If we could see the Miracle of a single Flower clearly our Whole Life would Change!
Buddha
 
This wonderful thought provoking message is just one of the sayings included in the Heart Blooms digi stamp set!  I'll now hand you over to Camille so she can tell you all about her make in her own words!
 
 It’s a good day – I have the opportunity to be a Guest Designer for LeighSBDesigns – Woo Hoo!
My card is all about heart – specifically Heart Blooms.
 
I digitally colored the image and used Print2Cut to cut five different hearts in varying sizes.  I layered the hearts to create one fully bloomed textured heart.  I added a sentiment from the set printed on digital “foil” paper – cutting out a spot to place my heart.  I added a textured background, some gems, and a bow and called it done.
 
 Thank you Camille for being our featured guest designer today with this stunning and creative card❤️
 
Add the Heart Blooms digi stamp set to your collections now while it's on sale through Nov 18 during the FALL SALE!
 

Happy Creating!
