New Release Double Showcase April

Welcome to April's New Release Showcase!  We're so glad you can stop by.  Today, we are officially introducing Marisol the Mermaid.  Back in November of 2016, I asked for name suggestions from the members of Stamps by AuroraWings FB group for this mermaid, who has appeared as a digi on two occasions up to that point.

Left: 'Starfish Mermaid' not available as a digi as this was a fundraiser SPECIAL EDITION.
Right: 'Whisper of the Sea', still available in JPG (at AuroraWings.com and AW Etsy ) and PNG (at AuroraWings.com and AW Etsy ).
Lots of members came up with so many lovely names (something around 200, I believe), and after careful consideration, Marisol, suggested by AWCB's designer/blog coordinator Donna Mundinger, was chosen.  Marisol is derived from the Spanish words for the sea (mar) and the sun (sol).  For mermaid who loves to spend time on the beach in the sun as much as as in the water, isn't this a perfect name?  And my promise was that the Fairy Godmother who names her would get a full-body digi of her before it's released to the public.

Fast forward to April 2018, and here we are.  We're unveiling a full-body image of Marisol today!  But that's not all.  I've drawn Summer Sprite to complete the Four Seasons Sprites, and this Sprite features a young Marisol.  But first, we'll kick off the showcase with the beautiful Marisol the Mermaid inspirations by our designers.

(As I mentioned earlier on the post, she is the Fairy Godmother of Marisol.)
Marisol the Mermaid comes in at 2100 x 2850 pixels (7 x 9.5 inches or 17.8 x 24.1 cm at 300 dpi) in JPG and PNG versions.  Size down to use her on a card, or use her full size as a main focus on a mixed media art canvas or print-at-home coloring page.  She's a lot of fun to color!

Now, get ready for a precious little Summer Sprite!  The inspiration for the is the baby Marisol, sitting on a beach, partaking in some seasonal food from the land.  Check out the fun creations by the AW designers!


Summer Sprite (with Watermelon) comes in at 1650 x 1800 pixels (5.5 x 6 inches or 14 x 15.2 cm at 300 dpi) in JPG and PNG versions.   She is a great addition to your AW Sprites stash, to complete your Four Seasons' Sprites, and her simpler lines and innocent Sprite charm are perfect for coloring with young children/ grandchildren, especially once it gets to be too hot to do anything outside during the day.  (We're not quite there yet, but dog days of summer will be here before we know it.)

There's another version of Summer Sprite - because I couldn't decide on the watermelon slice or a soft serve ice cream cone!  Here's the other version.


The Summer Sprite with Ice Cream Cone is a BONUS OFFER (BOGO - Buy One Get One FREE - deal) at AuroraWings.com for one week only (April 12 through April 18, 2018).  After that period, the ice cream cone version will be an exclusive, only available at AuroraWings.com digi shop.

March New Release Showcase


Welcome to our new release showcase!  Today we are introducing three new Sprites to the Aurora Wings Sprites Collection.  It's always fun to bring you these little babies inspired by flowers, animals, seasons, and food.  I'm sure I'll continue to be inspired to make something new and different from some other categories, too.

First, meet the Unicorn Sprite!  Everybody loves unicorns.  They're just so special.  Out of all the fantasy creatures, they may be the most popular right up there with dragons - only unicorns seem so pure and gentle they definitely tug at our heartstrings like no other.

The Unicorn Sprite is available in JPG and PNG, coming in at 1800 pixels square (6 x 6 inches or 15.2 cm x 15.2 cm at 300 dpi).  She is sure to be a great addition to your AW digi stash for making all kinds of projects from cards to wall art for a baby's room.

Next up, meet the Easter Bunny Sprite, dressed up in a fuzzy bunny suit, busily coloring the eggs to get them ready for Easter.  You can help him by coloring this in!  Not only will this make cute Easter cards, this will be a fun coloring page for the young ones in your family.

And last, but not least, we have a new flower Sprite.  Meet Anemone Sprite!  Looking a little bit like poppies, the anemone flower grows from bulbs, and come in a beautiful array of colors, which makes this digi fun to color (Especially if you are like me and enjoy coloring Sprites in naturalistic colors, but they're fantasy creatures, so any color palette works just fine!) and perfect for many different occasions - birthday, just because, weddings, or Mother's Day - which call for lots of flowers.  Check out the beautiful work from our designers!

New Release Double Showcase

Welcome to our second New Release Showcase of February!  So glad you can stop by.  Today, we have two lovely images in the artsy, sketchy style that some of you love so much.  I also enjoy making ink illustrations in this style, so you can expect a lot more in the future.

First up, we have 'Vines and Berries'.  I know it sounds very autumnal, and it is the third in my 'Seasons' series of square images.  The previously released 'Wings and Petals' and 'Fins and Pearls' are spring and summer, respectively.  After today's 'Vines and Berries', there will be one more left to go in the series for winter.  Check out the gorgeous inspirations our designers have created for today's showcase below!









'Vines and Berries' is available as a JPG digital stamp, coming in at 2400 x 2400 pixels (That's 8 x 8 inches or 20.3 x 20.3 cm at 300 dpi.).  Loaded with lots of details, this image is great for a card project when sized down a bit, and fantastic as a mixed art canvas project.  Of course, it's fun as a coloring page - It might even be fun to do this image in four different color palettes for four seasons.

Next up, I have another one of those glamarous fairy images for you.  Those of you who enjoyed my Lady Butterfly series might enjoy the new 'Peacock Queen'.  In nature, it's the males that have to work hard to impress the ladies by showing off their plumage, but I love the look of peacock feathers incorporated into ladies' gowns, so here she is!  Check out the awesome inspirations our designers have created for you!










Laila


'Peacock Queen' is available as a JPG digital stamp, and comes in at 2400 x 3000 pixels (8 x 10 inches or 20.3 x 25.4 cm at 300 dpi) full size, so you can color in all the details.  She's also lovely sized down for a greeting card project, of course.  With lots of peacock feather designer papers and die cuts out there, you can create something truly magnificent with this image to bring out the inner diva!

And here's one extra digi.  I know, at the top of this post, I said 'New Release Double Showcase', but  I have more than two digis to show you today that are new.  Let's just say, I got side tracked and fell behind schedule, watching way more TV than usual because of the winter Olympics coverage.

Despite my tardiness, two of the Showcase designers were able to help me out with samples for you.  Kudos to Jan and Silvia!

And here's another new digi that debuted without the showcase last weekend, 'Ice Flower'.  I was inspired while watching figure skating coverage on TV, and I wanted to bring this image out to you as soon as it was ready.   In case you didn't see it at our FB group, here she is.


'Ice Flower' is available in JPG and PNG, and it's a full size digi/ coloring page for maximum creative flexibility.  Coming in at 2400 x 3000 pixels (8 x 10 inches or 20.3 x 25.4 cm at 300 dpi).

Check out the gorgeous inspiration from Aurora Wings Challenge Blog's Donna from this past Monday's new challenge post!  Isn't it inspirational?


And here's another gorgeous sample made by Debbie, also of the Aurora Wings Challenge Blog.  In a gorgeous color palette!



If you haven't seen our latest challenge, we just kicked off a bingo challenge over at the Aurora Wings Challenge Blog earlier this week.  We are now a month-long challenge, so you'll have lots more time to create and join than before.  Our bingo board is loaded with options - not just colors or embellies, but both!   And you can mix colors and embellies for the 3 squares (down, across, or diagonal).  Of course, if you're extra enthusiastic, may we suggest that you go for a blackout? 


Our Aurora DT had lots of fun creating inspirations for you, so stop by and check them out!  You'll also get to meet the newest members of our Design Team in that post.  And in early March, we'll have our Stella DT bring you even more inspirations for you.  So keep an eye out and don't miss out on this fun challenge!

OK, now it's time for the goodies.  As you know, I can't have a new release showcase without having a discount code for digis, so here they are.  And I have an extra special going on this weekend - a gift-with-purchase offer of Shamrock Sprite!  This brand new baby joins the ever-growing Sprites Collection just in time for St. Patrick's Day.  Any digi purchase of only $5 USD will qualify you to have this digi sent to you via email.  No action needed.   I have this in JPG and PNG, so I'll send one based on what format of digis are in your order.  But if you have a preference, mention it in a 'note to seller' during check out.  And if you somehow forget to do that, shoot me an email, and I'll take care of it as soon as I can.  The gift-with-purchase is not an automated process, so please allow up to 24 hours after your order for an email from me.  Thanks!



Here's the important info.  The $5 USD minimum to qualify to receive the Shamrock Sprite digi is the FINAL TRANSACTION TOTAL AFTER ANY COUPON CODE HAS BEEN APPLIED.  You're safe if you're using the FEB25 code on your purchase, but you may not qualify if you're using NRFEB20 code to save 20% on $4 USD minimum (It depends on your exact number...  To be exact, your 'before coupon total' needs to be $6.25 USD or higher if you want to get this baby.  I did the math, and it works out to be exactly $5 after 20% discount.).

One last bonus sample.  From Silvia, who was lightning quick with this one, too.   Little Shamrock Sprite in greyscale with spot color.  Doesn't she look awesome?



I hope you enjoyed today's new release showcase.  Thanks for stopping by, and have a great weekend!
