New Releases: Picture This…

Hi Everyone
So I’ve been taking a little time to get some new release to you – but they are finally here.
Not only has it been a busy time at the place I work during the week, I’ve also just adopted a Cockapoo – which believe me he’s kept me very busy – but is now starting to settle in lovely.

Now on to the new release – it’s all about photography!
Camera Girl Digi Stamp – This is a set of two digi stamp – you get the young girl with a skyline background & one without – so you can use you favourite one – I really liked the one with the skyline.
Vintage Camera Digi Stamp – Lovely vintage style camera, with a film reel wrapped around. This would be great to use on anyone’s card who love photography!

Picture This…Paper Pack – A fun pack of six papers with three different designs. Some feature colour retro camera, camera outlines & a wording papering – which lots of photography phrases.

Design Team; Card Samples

Our design team have made some fabulous card samples using the Camera Girl Digi Stamp & the Picture This Paper Pack.

Mowbray Designs has created this cute feminine card – with a pink themed colour palette. Layering the wording & the pink outline camera papers onto silver mirror card. After shading ‘Camera Girl’ in pink and peach shaded & then cut with a die. She’s been mounted onto a decorative die cut shape. Finished off with die cut flowers, pearls and a die cut ‘Smile’ sentiment

Julianne has made this gorgoues card – which makes me think ‘Camera Girl’ is taking pictures of the stars. For the background she used the following distress oxide inks: broken China, faded jeans, chipped sapphire and black soot. The die is from the Waffle Flower stitched dies. Finishing off with silver sequins & the sentiment which you get on the digi stamp sheet.

Helen has made this bold card which really catches your eye. Matt and layering the photography sentiment paper on black & pink card. She then shaded the ‘Camera Girl’ digi stamp in pink and blue. Finishing off with card candi in the corners.

Mini Picture Frames – we are also have some mini photo digi stamps – these would be great to draw pictures into or even if your tech savy – resize some photographs, cut out the picture boxes and stick these photo frames over the top & pop them on a card or in a scrapbook. Great way to personalize items.

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; 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
