I always like a bit of pinterest inspiration when it comes to colour’s to use on our digi stamps. For this one I just typed into the search ‘Christmas Colour Palette’ had a browser & this was the one that caught my eye – it possibly has something to do with the marshmellows & the mug
Hello Everyone We are back today welcoming Autumn in by giving you a step by step tutorial on how to shade the coat on our Autumn Girl Digi Stamp. We first released this digi in 2016 – the thing I love about her is the movement I’ve tried to capture – with the wind blowing her coat and hair. The leaves also swirling in the background.
You could cut around autumn girl or die cut her – this way you get her with or without the leafy background.
Since we are colouring ‘Autumn Girl’ Digi I thought I’d go for an autumn colour palette. To choose my colours I often hop on over to pinterest & find a nice colour palette on there. Just like this one which inspired the colours I have used;

*Please note this is how I colour and shade & all opinions & instructions are my own. I’m not promoting any brands these are just the brands on alcohol markers and pencils I use.
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.

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.

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.
