Backing papers are a foolproof way to elevate your backgrounds but why not mix it up a little? Kitty Day has used distress oxide inks for a seamlessly blended backdrop on her bicycle card opposite. This is a great technique if you really want to make your digi stamps pop. Otherwise, why not use your digi stamps themselves as background options as Kitty demonstrates on her ice cream birthday card? It’s a surefire way to make them the star of the show!
It’s always worth taking a moment to consider which papers will complement your digi stamps. These Hunkydory motifs are calling out for traditional summer prints… think cutesy polka dots, candy-coloured stripes and classic gingham. Layer up onto contrasting card to make sure the patterns pop, then colour in your digi stamps using coordinating colours to match the prints for a cohesive look. This is a good chance to use up any papers you might find in your stash!
Cut & create
The great thing about digi stamps is that you can customise them to suit the design you have in mind. Think outside the box a little to see which effects you can come up with. For Kitty’s ‘Congratulations’ card opposite, print out the cocktail motif twice and colour in each of the glasses on only one panel. Colour in the middle three on the other piece, cut them out and layer them onto the first panel with 3D foam pads to add varying heights.

Apply green ink onto a grassy border die-cut and run along the bottom of the greeting. Add three die-cut clouds and lightly add some colour with a blue alcohol marker. Print out the bike digi stamp, colour in and cut out. Attach to the right side of the card, trimming off the excess. Add a stamped sentiment and gems to finish.
