This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
Your Preference: Digi or Stamped  (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Here are the beautiful creations made by our Design Team to get your mojo flowing:

I use and love both, I've been stamping for over 20 years and have a huge stash. I like that with digital you can get them pre-coloured and if I don't have the time or motivation for colouring they're great for a quick card

I like the flexibility of being able to use both. 
While I appreciate the versatility of digis, 
there is something special about inking up a rubber stamp.

I love both digis and stamps so it's a toss up for me.  I do like being able to 
resize the digital images to fit my projects and storage is much simpler.


I like both digis and stamps, but my first love is stamps.
This is how I got into card-making many years ago. 

I love both digital and rubber/clear stamps. Both have their own positives and negatives. I love that you can change the size of digital stamps. Rubber/ clear stamps take up a lot of space but I love that you can emboss stamps. I especially love it when I want to watercolour an image, like I did today.
I love both digital and rubber stamps for different reasons. My collection started with rubber stamps and I love being able to do something without turning on the computer!

I do love both for different reasons, but because I have been playing with my Zig Clean Colour Brush pens, which are water based and because I wanted to heat emboss my image, I have chosen stamped.

I can't decide!! I have vast amounts of both but am still a sucker for a happy mail delivery so have gone with a stamped image this time and heat embossed the sparkly sentiment, which you can't do with a digi. The wintry scene is also a stamp too.

For me, it's a simple choice - stamps every time!  I have tried digis but, for me, and I know it is such a personal thing, digis take away something of the creativity for me.  Maybe it's to do with spending so much time with a computer for work, but I love the whole stamping process, the rummaging, the choosing, the inking......

I also love both digi and stamps. I have a lot of stamps and they take up a lot of space. Digi stamps have the advantage that they can be printed in any size.

So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge and show us your style.
Don't forget, you MUST explain WHY it is your favourite to be eligible to win.

Good luck, and happy crafting.
Hugs from the AYLI girls.
