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
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 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
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.

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
