New Polymer Stamps - Pre-Order

A7 Set - Comes with separate sentiment

A7 Set - Comes with separate sentiment

I know most of you seem to like digi stamps these days but there are a lot of people who do like the feel of an actual stamp in their inky little hands lol!
We at Pink Gem Designs like to listen to what all of our customers have to we have had some of our most popular digis produced as POLYMER stamps.
They are due to arrive with us on Friday afternoon..... but as we will only have a few we have put them on the website now for pre-order because when they are gone they are gone!
Please note that any other items ordered at the same time will be sent to you when the stamps arrive :)

You can find the new stamps for pre - order here

If there are any other digis that you would like to see as a polymer stamp please leave a comment and let us know.......

Raining Hearts Tilda

It was my birthday yesterday so I decided I was going to spend the afternoon in my craftroom and have a good play!
Running PGD takes up most of my time and I don't get as much time to spend on crafting as I would like.
So yesterday I thought I would switch off from the business and the housework and have some proper me time.
Time to roll up my sleeves and get 'arty farty' 
This card took me ALL afternoon to make and at one point I felt very dissapointed  with  it but then I managed to pull it back and now I quite like it :)

The main reason I choose these colours was because I wanted to enter 'Magnolia Down Under Challenges' which has a colour challenge 'Orange, Pink & White'

A Matching Pair!

Here is a little twosome I made this morning using our current 'Freebie Digi' Dillon you can find him here
You will notice something different about him here though as he has had a sex change and is now called Dilly lol
I think Dillon is such a cutie that he would appeal to little girls as well as boys

You can find this little T-Shirt and card in my Etsy shop here

I have been playing with heat transfer paper and some of my digi designs this afternoon.

I have put the spares in my ETSY shop here

I have added a Linky Followers gadget at the top of the page....I keep reading on other peeps blogs that the Google followers gadget Friends Connect is about to disappear  and I would hate to lose any of you so please join the gadget at the top of my page just in case :)

For a Tweet Friend

Here are some card examples showing how you can quickly make a card using digi stamps and digi papers.
If you open your chosen paper in your graphics programme then open a digi stamp  png which has a transparent background you will see that the image stays white and the background is transparent. 
This means you can then colour your image after you have printed them out....
I have coloured my image on the computer as I wanted to make these cards quickly to show you what can be done with png images.
I have used 'Owl with Rose' here and she can also be bought in a set here
.......and 'Owl in Hat' here and she can also be bought in a set here
Micro Dots Here
Corrugated Effect Here
