Cards with characters at the heart of them often have a more charming quality, which is why we’ve teamed up with Di’s Digi Stamps to bring you these designs of Little Pippa. She’s a sweet, bug-eyed girl with an affinity for nature. Our cardmaker Kitty Frampton has made her the centre of attention on all seven cards shown here, and it’s hard not to be enamoured with each and every one.

Pens at the ready
Kitty has used Copic markers to achieve such lovely graduations of colour on Little Pippa. She recommends using three tones of the same colour: a light, medium and darker shade. Work from dark to light – this uses up less ink – and ensure you go over the join line slightly to create that desired ombré effect. You can also go back over the darkest hue a little if it’s too light and you want more depth.
Go the extra mile
Think about ways to further enhance these endearing designs. For example, on our top-right card, Kitty has applied a touch of glitter to the daisy centre, which ties in well with the yellow pearls. She’s also added rosy cheeks to each character, bringing her to life even more, as well as opting for different hair colours for extra variation.
Don’t forget the backgrounds
Make these designs pop by matting and layering various patterned papers behind them. You can keep the digi stamp panels rectangular, die cut them into circles, or simply cut them out by hand leaving a narrow border – Kitty demonstrates all of these options opposite. We also love the die-cut background with its criss-cross pattern.
