Waiting time | A digi a Day | Day 61


Waiting time digital stamp
Waiting time digital stamp


Hi!

Today I'm going super late!! I didn't know what to draw so I went to a random generator on the Internet. The random thing was "watch". One thing led to another and... I made this. 

This is a set of several images. The characters with and without expression. The characters with and without background. And the background by itself. It's a great set!

You can find it here in my store or here in Etsy. 

Have a great rest of the day!

These two siblings are just having a great time without any screens! They come separately and together, so you can use them independently with other sets if you want. Plus... with your purchase you have the version with and without facial expression. 

I think it was a great idea to change and make some people... 

You can find them here in my store or in Etsy here.

Have a great day!

Bat sleeping | A digi a day | Day 58




Bat sleeping digitals tamp
Bat sleeping digital stamp


Hello!

I have today a little bat sleeping! Bats are in general not very likable by people. I don't really know why. I really love seeing bats flying, and when they are just hanging down. 

As you know, I love animals. So today I have a bat! And tomorrow it will be a turtle, and next day... I don't have anything ready yet. I'll try to have different. 

I hope you are enjoying your Saturday. I'm going to finish somethings and keep doing things. 

You can find the digi here in my store or in Etsy here

Hi there!

what a day... It has been exhausting and I'm super tired but I managed to get the digi of the day done and colored. I am now ready to rest until tomorrow. 

So I made a tooth fairy. Like for real, do you se her tooth? She is so cute! If you don't like her with the tooth it's ok, the product includes a version without facial expression. 

I hope your day was nice, relaxed and fun. Sorry I don't write more today, it's just that it's one of those days where I really need to rest. 

You can find this fairy in my website here (if you are in US) or in Etsy here

chicken alien spaceship digital stamp
Chicken Alien Spaceship Digital Stamp


Hello!

How is your day going? Here is my digi of the day. I made this sketch a while ago but never completed it so I thought it was a good one for the digi of the day. 

This Chicken Alien Spaceship digital stamp comes with two versions, the one with the chick that I'm showing above, and one without it, so you can add your favorite characters to the spaceship. I think it will be super cute with the little dog set that I have in the store. 

You can find it in my website here or in Etsy here

I hope you like it and you enjoy the rest of your day!

Hi there!

I hope you are doing well! It's getting complicated sometimes to keep up with the digi of the day and I have to go to easier ones, like this workaholic ant. 

This ant on the phone is perfect for projects destined to workaholics. Ants are workers by nature, just this one is more on the modern times haha. 

I hope you like it. You can find it in my store or on Etsy here

Snail Mail digital stamp
Snail Mail digital stamp


Hi!

Today it's being a little busy in Kinda Cute! I've been launching a new line of products, that I think it's very cute. I'm incorporating to the store my digital stamps in colored in PDF files, to just print for use! Now you don't need to color my digital stamps to have a cute card, you can just have the colored sheets. You can find them in my store here and in Etsy here. I'm just starting so I don't have many yet, but I'll be doing more and more every day. 

For today digi of the day I have this cute snail (and yes, I know that they don't have the eyes there and even eyebrows and mouth, but... it's cuter!). He is delivering the mail everywhere! Isn't that cute! Again, with everything that I have going on I didn't have time to color it with markers but I hope that can happen soon enough...

You can find it in my store here and in Etsy here.

I hope you have a great rest of your Sunday!

Girl Shopping | A digi a Day |Day 51

Girl shopping digital stamp
Girl shopping digital stamp


Happy Saturday!

Today I have this cute girl digital stamp for the digi of the day. As you can notice, I didn't colored it with markers or pencils or any physical medium. I just colored it digitally because... guess what? I realized yesterday that I can't spend most of my working time every day on the digi of the day. Since I love drawing and I really want to continue making the digi of the day, I'll be doing digital coloring most of the time and then if I have more time or I feel like it I'll do it with markers or pencils. 

I would love to be able to do it with markers every time but... I really want to make more things for the store! I have some things in the making so... let's hope for those ones. I think you'll like them! 

Well, I hope you like the little girl (or old girl) with her kitten in her bag. With your purchase you'll have this version plus all the elements separately. 

Also, you might be interested in joining my Facebook group (link at the right sidebar). I post there my digi of the day but we have fun showing creations and I post free digital stamps regularly. 

You can find this digital stamp in my store here or  in my Etsy here.

I hope you have a great rest of the weekend!

Safari expedition | A digi a day | Day 50


Safari expedition digital stamp
Safari expedition digital stamp


Hi!

Today I'm back with the digi of the day! This time is a boy (or a girl) in safari clothes looking for the lion. Poor guy... haha. 

I colored it with Copic markers as usual and it was a lot of fun. It took me a long time because it printed it quite big, but I wanted to get the details well. I'm very happy on how the boy turned out but the lion seems too "yellow".  

You can find it in my website here or my Etsy store here.

Have a great rest of the day!

Snakes in love | A digi a day | Day 49



Snakes in love digital stamp


Hi!

Day 49!! Wow... I have to say that as great as it is to be able to do this every day, I spend a lot of time between the drawing and the coloring. I hope I can keep this going for a long time. 

Today I have these Snakes in love digital stamp. It's very complicated for me not drawing animals. Yesterday were some giraffes, today are some snakes, tomorrow... I think it will be an animal too, not sure yet. 

I colored this image using the no line technique. I printed it at 25% of opacity and colored it with Copic markers. I liked the combination colors in the jar, with the green and brown, I think I'll be using it soon for another digi I have in mind. But I think my markers are getting dry and right now it's so complicated to get refills!

You can find the Snakes in love in my website here if you are in the USA or in Etsy here

I hope you are liking my digi a day challenge. If you have any suggestions, let me know!!

Hugs,

Patricia

Giraffe set | A digi a day | Day 48



Giraffe set digital stamp
Giraffe digital stamp set


Hi there!

I hope you are having a great day so far! I started last night with the digi for today so I managed to have it finished quite early (for what I am used to). 

I have this set of giraffes (I know that giraffes have longer legs, but this way are way cuter). I think it's a great complement to my collection of critters. These, together with the dog set, cat set, unicorn set, chicken set, platypus set and mice set among others, are some of my favorites to make cards. 

I colored it with Copic markers :). 

You can find it in my website here or my Etsy store here.

Have a great rest of the day!

Fairy and lights digital stamp
Fairy and lights digital stamp


Hello my friends!

here is my digi of the day!! A fairy! I think I'll be using this one from time to time because it's very fun to color.  I did it with Copic markers as usual. 

The balls on the top are supposed to be lights but I didn't want them to be lights so they are just some kind of decoration. This is a set of 3 digital stamps, the lights and the fairy with and without facial expression. 

You can find it in my store here if you are in the US or in my Etsy store if you are abroad here.

I hope you are having a great day!

Mushroom village digital stamp
Mushroom Village Digital Stamp



Hello!

I'm back to day with the digital stamp number 46 from my personal challenge of "A digi a day", where I post for sale a new digital stamp every day until... I can't do it anymore. To be honest, I just want to see for how long I can keep up. It's nice to have this so I make myself draw every day. I even color every day, which I wasn't even doing much. 

Today I have this Mushroom Village digital stamp to show you. I colored with Copic and pencils. I think it turned out quite well although I should have thought on the color scheme in advance hehe, oh well.. maybe next time. 

I hope you like it! You can find it in my store here and in Etsy here

Tortoise | A digi a day | Day 44

Tortoise digital stamp
Tortoise digital stamp


Hi there!

I'm back with the digi of the day! Today I have this little (or big) tortoise. Did I mention that I like animals? I love them, mostly any. I don't have much sympathy for certain kind of spiders (or cockroach), but any other animal I probably like. 

I colored the tortoise with Copic markers and I have to say that it changed so much between the colored image and the image without coloring! Amazing how a simple image can be brought to life. 

You can find the tortoise here in my store or here in my Etsy store. 

Have a great rest of  the saturday!

Hi!

I'm here again with the digi of the day! This time, after 31 mermaids this year, I have another one! But this one is a little different because I made a special tale. 

She is going for a swim with her pet the shark. I colored it with Copic markers and pencils. I hope it doesn't look too creepy! You can find her in my store here or on Etsy here.

Have a great rest of the day! I'll be back tomorrow to show you the new digi of the day!

Spaceship with Chick | A digi a day | Day 42

Spaceship chick digital stamp


Hello!

I hope this post goes well because blogger has changed and they took away options (or I can't find them) and I don't know where things are anymore...

Anyway... for they 42 I have this super cute Spaceship whit chick digital stamp that you can find in my store here or in Etsy here. With the purchase of this digi, you will have two versions. One with the chick and another without it, so you can re-use this cute winged spaceship with other kinda cute creatures!
I colored it with Copic markers and pencils. At the middle of my spaceship coloring I ran out of grey ink on a couple of my markers, so the pencil basically try to mask the disaster haha. 

I hope you like the digi for the day!

Hugs,

Patricia

Father's Day Card with Platypus | Happy Father's Day!




Hi!

Today I have to show you this card that Von Marie made for Father's day. I can't believe we are almost there!

She is using the Platypus digital stamp set over a watercolor background, that she colored with distress inks. 

I think this platypus have a lot of possibilities in the crafty world... you just can use them for almost anything and they are so fast to color... I guess I will have to try them myself and make a couple of cards. 

I hope you like the card I have for today!

Hugs,

Celebrating Christmas | A digi a day | Day 41

Celebrating Christmas

Hello!

here again to show you the digi I made for today. A little boy celebrating! This could be used for any celebration but this is the one I sketched to celebrate the new year this year, so that's why it's called Celebrating Christmas. 

I think it's great for birthday cards. The good thing about this stamp is that it's very easy to color or very complicated to color, depending on what you want to do with it! You can find it in my store here or in Etsy here.

I hope you are having a great day!

Ice Cream Stand | A digi a day | Day 40

Ice Cream Stand Digital Stamp


Hello!

I realized that I never posted here my MerMay2020 mermaids and it was one new mermaid every day! Well, when I finished the challenge I decided to continue with my digital stamp every day. Since I already had 31 I started on number 32, but I never posted them here either! 

So I am changing that, and I'm going to show you every day the new image that arrived to my store that same day!

Today I have this Ice Cream Stand digital stamp. I used the no-line technique and I colored it with Copic markers. I added a little detail with pencils but not much. Isn't it perfect to go with your other summer stamps? I personally like it by itself but I have a pig eating ice-cream and a couple of ducks that will go well with this one.

I hope you like my day 40 digital stamp. Let's see how many days I can keep up with it! It might happen that I don't post it here every day. So don't forget to follow me on Instagram, because I always post the photo there!

You can find the ice cream stand digital stamp in my Kinda Cute store here or in Etsy here.

Fun Exploding Box using Mer Dog Digital stamp | Animal Mermaid Project


Mer dog digital stamp

Hi everyone!

Today I have a fun project that Sharon made. A HUGE exploding box! It looks like it's not but it is... if you want to see a video of the box, you'll have to go to Sharon's Instagram post to see it because I don't have any idea how to upload it here ;). 

She colored the little dog mermaid with Copic markers (as you can guess since she is a Copic instructor). I love how colorful all the project is. The papers that she used go perfectly well with the image's colors. 

Corner of the exploding box


Here is the list of colors that she used. Feel free to pin it for future reference.

I hope you like the project that I show you today.

Design Team Announcement | Kinda Cute by Patricia Alvarez




Hello!

It has been hard to come to a decision. I can't say that it's easy to go through all the emails and projects that I have seen from all the people how have applied to be part of my design team. I'm overwhelmed and surprised that so many people really liked to be part of the team but at the same time sad that I can't have everyone to be part of it.

- Amanda Fitterer

- Cheri Burry

- Jennifer Branny

- Kim DeRuosi

- Kimberly Skinner

- Maggie Arambarry

- Lounon Manon


Congratulations ladies! I'll contact you with more details about how things work ;). 


Thank you to everyone who applied for your interest, your willing to work with me and your kind words. I really appreciate everyone of you.

I have to draw more digital stamps with dogs, cats and other pets. But I have to be inspired.

So if you want to find cute digi stamps and be surprised of what you might find, take a look in my store.

You're incredible, like a flying squirrel :) | Handmade squirrel card


Flying Squirrel Digital Stamp

Hi there!

I hope you are doing well and you are starting the weekend with the right foot. Today I have this super cute card that Fikreta made a couple of months ago (I have so much to share with you!). 

She is using Flying squirrel digital stamp. I love how she created a scene. The little guy looks like a superhero! The sentiment is perfect for this card that will make anyone's spirits to lift. 

And how did I came up with a flying squirrel that is just a regular squirrel but with a cape and a mask? Oh well, I guess I have that sense of humor ;). 

I hope you like the card and the digi. Which kind of card would you make with this particular one? 

Have a great rest of the weekend!

Wow, I thought I was going to be able to post this earlier today but guess what? I couldn't haha. 

Well, I didn't want to miss the oportunity to share with you today this birthday card that Deepti made not so long ago. She is using one of my favorite digital stamps, Girl playing violin

I love how she blended the colors in the background using different inks. Also, how the music notes are on top of it with some paste. If you want to know more details don't forget to go to her blog ;).

CAS card using Pilgrim Digital Satmp | Kinda Cute by Patricia Alvarez



Hello!

today I have this cute card that Céline made not so long ago. She is using the Pilgrim digital stamp for this one. I draw this digital stamp as a symbol to the pilgrims that do the Camino de Santiago in Spain. I have never done in and I don't think I will. But it's amazing how many people do every year (I suppose this year will be different).

She colored the image using Copic makers, I added the colors in this cute chart that you can Pin and save for later reference.






Enjoy the rest of your day. Remember that you can always go to my Pinterest account for more charts and inspiration!

Oh Nuts | Squirrel Happy Birthday Handmade Card

Happy Squirrel Digital Stamp


Hello!

I hope you are ready to have a great weekend! Hopefully you are already used to stay home and not climbing the walls. There is always something to do at home, above all if we are all crafters!

Today I have this cute card that Beata made using Happy Squirrel digital stamp. She did a fantastic job with the design, colors and sentiment! The little nuts are not part of the digital stamp, but isn't it perfect that we usually can mix different stamp sets to create the perfect card? I do it all the time. Above all with little stamps and sentiments. Now I'm creating more sentiment stamps but I have still a long way to go!

I think this little squirrel is perfect for almost any occasion. She did a great handmade birthday card but I think as a thank you or even baby card would be cute. I'm even thinking on printing it and put it somewhere in my planner.

I hope you like the card I have to show you today. I'll be back again soon with another kinda cute project!

Hugs,

Patricia
