Going Back In Time; 18th Century Digi Stamp Release

For our latest Dig Stamp release we are going back in time to the 18th Century. Meet Miss Elizabeth – an elegant young lady dressed in her finest clothing. This is the second digi stamp in our historical fashion range. Below we will show you three different colour ways & where we found our inspiration for each one.

To make this card we’ve used;
Silver Mirror Card, White Card Stock, Pearlescent Blue Card Stock, White Feathers, Ribbon, Assorted Gems/Pearls, Sue Wilson Corner Die, Tonic Studio Sentiment Die, 8×8 Black Card

To start we’ve cut a piece of silver square mirror card & matted on of our ‘Elegant Petals’ digital papers onto it. Using a piece of white card we’ve die cut a fancy frame with a Sue Wilson corner die & then matted a square piece of blue card into the center. The Digi Stamp has been die cut with a tonic studio die & placed into the center of the card. We’ve then finished off with two white feathers, a double ribbon, die cut sentiment and lots of pearls and gems.

Shading with Promarkers – Colour Charts

If your part of our facebook group we did a poll showing you the three different colour way we shaded our 18th Century lady & the blue version was the one which received the most votes – so she was the one I picked to make my sample card with. Below I’ve made some charts so you can shade along with us – listing the promarker colours used.

The second favourite in our poll was the lilac/purple lady with blonde hair.

We always head to pinterest to find inspiration for colour palettes before I start shading a digi stamp – here is some of the pictures which inspired the colours for our 18th Century Lady

Christmas In July: Shading the Snowglobe Digi

What you need to create this card;
7×7 pre-folder card / Silver Mirror Card / Square Nesting Shaped Dies / Background Paper (we’ve used one from ‘Christmas Penguins‘) / Sue Wilson Snowflake Die / Foam Pads / Glue / Adhesive Gems / Glitter / Double Sided Tape.

To start we’ve die cut silver mirror card & layered the dotty paper from the Christmas Penguins Paper Pack – putting some purple glitter around the edge. Using the square nesting dies we’ve then die cut two frames – both the same size but one with silver cardstock and the other in pearlescent lilac cardstock & then interlinked them together & placed foam pads on the reverse. We’ve then shaded the snowglobe digi stamp which we’ll show you how to do in the video below. Finishing off a Sue Wilson snowflake corner die & lots of adhesive gems and pearls. Modern colour pallet for the Christmas Card – great for ladies and young girls.

Christmas In July; Making A Penguin ‘Flip it’ Card

Happy Monday! It’s another Christmas In July release.
Who is loving our Penguin Digi Stamps so far?
This weeks release is ‘Snow Penguin’ a cute little penguin dashing through the snow in her scarf and bow. We created a ‘flip it’ card for our make this week and below shows you some simple steps on how to fold and die cut your card so you can make one too.
Let get started…

What you need to create this card;
A4 White Card Stock / Silver Mirror Card / Shaped Die / Background Paper (we’ve used one from ‘Christmas Penguins‘) / Snowflake Dies / Foam Pads / Glue / Adhesive Gems / Glitter / Double Sided Tape.

Step By Step Creating The ‘Flip It’; Folding & Die Cutting

Step 1: Take your A4 piece of card & mark the center fold line. Score the center with a bone folder or you could also use a scoring board (I have used The Big Score). Once score line has been made, fold the card stock in half to create an A5 cardr
Step 2: You will again need to find the center point this time on the right hand side of the previous fold. Score this line & fold the card back on itself – creating a backwards Z when stood up as you can see in the picture above.
Step 3: On the fold line you’ve just made, grab your chosen die (I’ve chosen an Xcut die) & make sure you have equal spacing top & bottom of the die. You will only be cutting the die up to the fold line so you will need to find the center of the die too, before using some low tack tape to stick it the piece of card. Once you have done this place the card with die on the edge of the die cutting plates, this will only cut the die up to the center fold line. Remove the die & your card should look like the above picture
Step 4: Fold the card back on it self down the score line and the die cut part the the other side – you should now have the base to start creating your flip it card.
ps. you can use an shaped die to create a flip it – you could even create multiple flip it’s on one card – using smaller dies

Christmas In July: Creating A Framed Playful Penguins Card

Today we have another two new releases and we are going to showing you how to create this fun card using frames, stamping and heat embossing. We also have another quick colouring video with hints and tips of how to shade this lovely new digi.

We’ve used a blue and white colour palette for this card. Snow is the one thing I think we all wish for at Christmas time – only it’s a very rare occasion we have a white Christmas here in England – so alot of my card creation features snowflakes/snowfall, to me it’s a symbol of the festive season. The backing paper we’ve used is from our ‘Christmas Penguins‘ Paper Pack

My favourite thing about this digi stamp is the fun the season which is captures – kids love to get out on their sledges when there’s fresh snow fall & you can just see the joy on the little penguins face – very cute!


Let’s get creating…

Step By Step; Creating your framed card

Step 1; Take a black 8×8″ card we’ve then used a ‘Stamps By Chloes’ snowflake board stamp, VersaMark embossing ink pad & Wow Embossing Powder ‘Glacier’. Stamp round each edge of the card (have a spare piece of paper to shake the embossing powder onto) Then use your heat glue to seal the stamped image.
Step 2; Print and shade your digi stamp in – see youtube for colouring tips.
Step 3; Cut your matt and layers with square nesting dies – also cut a frame.
Step 4; To create snowfall in the background of the digi, place small glue dots around the image & shake glitter over the top – this will need to left to dry. Make sure your glue is dries clear.
Step 5; Stick pattern paper, & your matt and layer digi to the card – i’ve put the digi on at an angle. & place foam pads around the inside edge of your frame & stick
Step 6; finish your card off with a sentiment, die cut snowflakes and adhesive gems

Need help shading – watch this speed colouring video;

Here is a list of the promarker colours we used throughout the tutorial. If you don’t have all these colours you can mix it up a little & try combinations of your own.

How To Create A Penguin Tunnel Card

We’ve been making another card with our cute Ice Skating Penguins. We will show you a step by step guide on how to create your own. There’s also a quick youtube colouring tutorial on how to shade our penguin digi.

For this card we have used just the lady penguin. This is a tunnel style card – instead of building the layers up on the card base – you build them on the inside – creating a tunnel.

Watch our how to shade the penguin digi in this youtube video;

Promarkers colours used to shade to penguin in the tutorial above

STEP BY STEP; Guide to assembling the card

Step 1: With your pre-scored 8×8 blank card – measure 1cm either side of the centre score line & then make your own score lines along your marked line.
Step 2: You will now have a valley fold
Step 3: Select the papers/card & nesting dies. We’ve used circle nesting die in 4 gradient sizes.
Step 4: Matt & layer your chosen card stock to the main card – take the second largest circle & place in the center of the card front & die cut out all layers.
Step 5: Cut the different layers of card stock using the nest circles. Make sure each circle is large enough to matt the small layer onto. Remember you building the layers in-wards, instead of out.
Step 6: Use foam pads to stick all inner layers together. I’ve added small ice skates (available from our Free Digi Sheet) around the outer frame along with die cut snowflakes.
Step 7: Shade in your digi stamp – see youtube tutorial for tips.
Step 8: Finish off with adhesive gems. You will have a lovely tunnel style Christmas card.

Here you can see all the build up of layers. I love the colour palette of teals and lilacs.
You can get the mini individual ice skates from the FREEBIES section on the site – see the competition page on how to access.
