DDH Blog Hop - Fancy Folds


Welcome to the June Blog Hop for Digi Design House!  If you came from the DDH Blog, then you are at the right place!  If not, you may want to go back there to get started so you don't get lost!  Our theme this month is Fancy Folds!  Now I have to say, fancy folds terrify me.  So, I'm going with my old standby, the easel card.  I figured this would be good anyway because my father and father-in-law like to display their cards.  So this is the father's day card that I sent to each of them (although, technically, the one that went to my father-in-law came from my husband).  Anywho, this Wilderness image by Digi Design House is just perfect for both men because they love the outdoors and nature and all that stuff.  : )  I coloured the image with my Copic Markers:  Papa Bear - E47, E99, E35, E34, E21; Water - BG07, BG05, BG02, BG000; hillside - YG97, YG95, YG93, RV95; front tree - G99, YG17, YG95, YG03, YG93; background trees - YG97, YG95, YG93.  You'll see with my colour combos that I really wanted to create dimension with my scene.  I added some RV95 to the hillside to give it a little more of a greyish cast and used brighter colours as I came forward with the trees to really make it seem that they are closer.  Of course, I can't make a man-card without twine, so I added lots!

As per usual, there are fantastic prizes for commenting on the blog hop so make sure you read all the way to the bottoms to get all the details!


I popped out some of the images to really add to that dimension feel.

Three mystery Design Team members will be hiding a magic shovel in their fancy fold. This magic shovel will give you A Day at the Beach from Digi Design House just for commenting on their blog post. You have until 6:00PM CST on Sunday, June 12 to comment. At 6:01PM, the number of comments will be tallied, and the random number generator will do its magic to pick the winner. You don't know which team members have the magic shovel, so make sure you comment on EACH stop in the hop. Oh yes, we are giving away THREE FREE STAMP SETS!
Now, on to the beautiful Stephanie's blog!  Here's the hop order in case you get lost!
