Big Hugs From Paris and Craftin Desert Divas!

Bonjour mes amis!  And Happy Tuesday!  Lisa BZibziak (yeah... that's not French... it's here and today I'm up on the CDD Blog to show you a card I made using some of the new Paris Themed Digis available now in the CDD Shop
Just love these new adorable digis and one of the things I love the most is they come in sets and the images are separate so you can easily mix and match your images.  I love to cut out the digital images... the same as I do stamped images... so that I can pop them up and add dimension and layers.  But the awesome thing about digital stamps is you don't have to cut them out.  You can size and create your scene layering one stamp in front of another before you print it.  You may remember my herd of cows from a couple months ago...
On this one, I layered a few cows together for my background and printed and cutout the front one to pop it up.  To get the two front cows in the herd to have their feet over the die cut grass I just cut the bottoms of their feet from the paper a bit and slid the grass underneath.  So much you can do with digital stamps!  Anyway, back to Paris...

I am in love with the new dies and stamps from the April Release!  On this card I used the new Picture Frame die and the new Wishful Thought Word dies to cut out the word Big and the coordinating Wishful Thoughts stamp set to stamp Hugs.  I also used some of my old favorites, Fancy Frames and The Sky's The Limit.

The adorable little girl is from Painting Paris and the poodle is from Paris Friends.  The bird (yes... there is only one bird in the set...but you only need one... you can flip it to face either way and size it in any size you want) is from Paris Accessories and so is the Eiffel Tower.  I colored in my images with my alcohol markers.

I cut out a piece of watercolor paper using Fancy Frames and used the smooshing technique with my distress inks and blocks to add some blue sky and green grass for the background.  A few paper flowers with CDD sequins for their centers finish it off.
If you're new to digital images or just want a refresher, check out this video on the CDD website about Getting Started with Digital Stamps here!
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Passez une journée merveilleuse!  And if you need any help with using your digital stamps, you can find me and the other Digi Design Team Members over at the Craftin Desert Divas Gallery on Facebook! 
Hope to see you again soon!
Here are the products I used:
