Marvelous Cards and a Sneak Peek

Greetings stamperistas! You know, every day I get a sweet handful of emails requesting the rubberizing of the digi-stamps. I'm pretty open to suggestions but the only thing that I am consistent on is the image can only be one or the other. If we make a digi into rubber, it will no longer be available as a digi. This of course will be a dismay to digi-lovers. So here's what my proposal is:

We'll have a vote at the end of each month and one digi will be made into rubber. Once the vote ends, the digi will be removed from the website until it is rubberized. How does this sound? Let me know what you think.

We have a boatload of cards today to show. I went harvesting in the gallery last night and spotted some that caught my eye. So I washed them and polished them and set them here for all to view!

This first one is of Dorothy Anya by Cathy! My fave aspect of this card... it looks like a water painting. Love the colors and the little ribbon is a perfect touch!


Ooooh look at the vibrant colors on this one. Gorgeous! Made by Claudette.


This perfect card of Birthdayness is made by our Elena, using the little cake from the Happy Chef set.


This golden-haired mermaid was expertly crafted by none other than our Club Anya VP, Jessica.


Yes! I love these! These lovelies were created by Jacquie! Gorgeous!!!




Oh la la! Is this Ian's secret recipe for his delicious brocolli soup? An excellent recipe card by PjPants!


Yayyy this sweet card was made by Susan, who won the Anya Fashion Contest! Is she cute or what?!

Amongst this sea of girliness is one lone space man. Ian by Wicked Pixie.


Wow what an awesome lineup today!!! And here's a sneak peek at what's in my workshop! More on this next week!


Enjoy your Thursday! Some awesome news tomorrow so drop on by!


Today's question is: What's for lunch?

Some sort of a chicken dish, whatever I decide to make. Or whatever I can make from it. hahahaha. Oh and a salad! Yum!


Here's Bailey using Stewie as a pillow.


This is Bailey's shocked expression when the Pillow got annoyed and left.

EEEEEEEEEEEE.. I love the tinkerbell.. Cant wait for the set to get released.. I like the idea of changing the digis to rubber. It quiets both tribes..
Cant wait for SUNDAY!!!!!

Lilian said...

I love the Tinkerbell sneak peek. Can't wait for the garden girl to be available as well. May I propose a discount be given to those who've bought the digi stamps and will be buying the rubberized ones too? I want them in rubber too but they are so cute had to buy them in digi form.. :)

Tinker bell looks so sweet. Prawn stir-fry for lunch, got to lose those pounds some how x

If I had to choose only ONE website to visit a day, you know this would be it! Those cards are suuuuuper cute. Oh my gosh, I need to brush my teeth again - I think I'm getting a cavity with all the sweetness!
Digi to rubber guidelines are fine by me. Maybe do it for a month or two to make sure you're getting the response you want? I am great either way.
For lunch - spinach salad with blueberries, strawberries, walnuts w/ a vinegarette dressing. Mmmmm...I can't wait. Have a great Thursday!

Elena said...

I think it is a good idea with voting, Marie! Your new image Tinkerbell is adorable!!!!! Love it!
All of the cards are fantastic!!!
I didn't decide yet what we will have for lunch.

Dawn said...

MUST.HAVE.TINKERBELL!!!I LOVE the doggies... I have two Jack Russells and when they snuggle it is GORGEOUS!!!

Lunch... Diet coke and whatever is at the bottom of my pocketbook...

I have no time for lunch!!! I MUST STAMP!

Scrappychick said...

What a cute pixie she is! and I like the digis! I am totally broke right now and they are sadly all I can afford...plus they save room..hehe.
As for lunch, funny you should ask. My mom just called and offered to pick me up lunch and bring it to work:) So I don't know!

Mary said...

Bailey is too cute!! I can't wait for the Tinkerbell, she's almost as cute as Bailey...lol.
What's for lunch? Beats me - probably leftovers...blech.

paulssandy said...

The sneek peak is adorable. I can hardly wait!

I don't usually eat lunch. Bad, bad, bad, me!

Sandra MacLean said...

AAhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!! TINKERBELLE!!! MUST HAVE!! Lunch today, if I ever get to it, might be a sandwich from Panera. And then a nap. :D

Lisa Graves said...

Love the Tinkerbell. I really like the digi stamps... they take up less space. :-)

No idea about lunch yet.

Novell said...

OMG, I'm in LOVE with Tink!!!!!

Lunch...who can think that far ahead?! It's only 7am here. What Joni's having sure sounds yummy, though!

Diana said...

Love love LOVE the sneak peak! I can't wait until Feb.1

As for digis into stamps, I think its a great idea but I'm equally torn, I love digis as much as rubber.

Lunch will be leftover chicken sausage and peppers. Yummy!

Gypsybear said...

LOVE the pixie preview....can't wait for that...

As for Digi vs. Rubber...I prefer...BOTH...I like Digi for ease of use and space...but there's something to be said for holding a stamp in my hand...

Lunch? Turkey sandwich on french bread, and a bowl of chicken noodle soup...(it's cold here in Dallas)...

kadie said...

Oh goodness, I LOVE that tink! (loved the Wendy too). I'm a fan of the rubber, so more any of the digi's that go rubber make me happy :)

PBJ for lunch!

Katie @ Paper Makeup said...

ACK! I love that tinkerbell! So so so cute!

I like the simple and quick nature of the digi stamps. I am a WANT IT NOW kinda gal! But i think it's fair for the digi stamps to eventually be turned into rubber. Digi lovers have a chance to get it as a digi. If it's going to go ot rubber, then they know they need to get it ASAP before it's gone!

Please make tinkerbell into a digi right now! I want her!

rachelsigmak said...

Marie,

I think my husband is wishing you would STOP. I however, hope you never do, your stamps are A-mazing. I have mentioned this at every sneak peak, but I just need to be put on a monthly payment, "I want it all", instant shipment. Hahaha.
Help, I wasn't born in a barn, but I love the FARM.

I am eating leftovers for lunch, after I feed my two rugrats, it will likely be close to dinner time... what is that Linner.

Lindsay said...

i love the tinkerbell! ok so im not terribly upset you want to change the rubber to digi, as long as i am sure to buy the digi before you do so lol...can you do some the opposite route? and take them from rubber to digi? I love the convenience of just being able to download and print vs ordering paying for shipping waiting for shipping etc ya know because i soooo want the mermaid and the bride and groom ;)

Sprytebyrd said...

Oh, I love them all! I can't wait for my first Anya so that I can play!
Lunch today... maybe chicken salad?

JessicaK said...

Love the Tinkerbell image! She's my fave Disney character. And I think it'll be some Mexican for lunch today. Mmm.

denean said...

Lunch?? Who can eat lunch after seeing that AWESOME Tinkerbell!! Can not wait for more!!
As long as us digi lovers get a heads up the image will be leaving (sort of a last call)... I dont have a problem with it! :)

Christi said...

All of those cards are fantastic!!!!! Lunch for me is a salad-trying to be a good girl. :)

the whimsical butterfly said...

I am SOOO excited for Sunday and SO excited for that stinkin' cute Tink!!! Beautiful cards everyone! How fun!

Ooooh dear you know I love my rubbah but I think voting is prob the best idea.

Lunch was leftover tacos from last night's dinner. Yum! Oh and some chips and salsa. Now it's time to stamp! I have LOTS to do hee hee...

Oh, and btw those doggies make me want to snuggle them...too bad you guys live so far from me!!!

Jacquie said...

I LOVE that Tinkerbell !! However, I LOVE all your stamps!! digi and rubber!! I just haven't gotten to the rubber yet! Hehe!! The digi is great, so you can save room, although the rubber is great too!! I agree with the other ladies, that I like being able to get it RIGHT AWAY!! No wait, no shipping!! YAY!!! Can't wait to hear your news and see what images are next!! My problem is......I want them all!! Hehe!!!
Unfortunately my lunch was Mickey D's,because I was at work and was not prepared with something healthier!!! ACK!!! Hate that!! Hope you are well; take care!!! Thanks for sharing all those WONDERFUL cards!!

CREATE=FUN said...

oh my I want that fairy!!!!!!!!
please let it be available soon lol

Melissa Craig said...

Oh the pixie is just way too cute!! Can't wait to get her. I think your voting idea is a great one.

Lunch today was leftover Chicken Taco Soup from last night. YUMM-O!!

Islander Girl said...

I'm a want it now girl so digi is my form of stamping! I can resize to whatever suits my cards! Don't get me wrong I love the stamps also, but digi is definitely my first choice. Maybe you can sell them digi for a couple of months and then sell the rubber stamps after?

Anywho, thanks for posting my card...I was shocked to see it on the blog!

Love, love, love the tinkerbell! I so can't wait to get it!!!! I want it now!!!!!!!!!!!

Lunch was spaghetti...

Joyce said...

Tink is adorable! I can't wait for the new release!

I vote for rubber all the way (but that's just me). I REALLY want Geisha in rubber so I hope she wins the first vote.

Lunch....hmm.....salad, sometimes cheese and crackers with an apple or leftovers from the night before.

Carolina said...

Love the sneak peek!!! The sample cards you selected to share with us today are just so adorable!

Angie said...

OmGosh, OmGosh, OmGosh! When will I be able to get my hands on that adorable Tink??? Will we get to preorder??? I want it! Oh, and I think voting on a digi to turn into rubber is a great idea. Oh, and we're having leftovers for lunch. Hubby made some yummy potato/cheese/groundbeef cake thingies last night (they don't have a real name) and there's extra, so that's lunch today!

Lori aka Lo Lo said...

Your dogs are sooo cute!! I luv all your stamps. I can't wait to make my first purchase.

xoxo,
Lori

Anita Hovey said...

Now you've done it. TINK???? SHUT UP! She's too cute. I was going to hold off ordering for "budget" reasons, but forget that...I'll be ordering as soon as she's available :) My 3 yo will go nuts over that stamp!

Brandi said...

Tinkerbell!! I am so excited! Yea!

Tracy.H said...
