Did you know you can foil digi stamps? It’s easy! Print your chosen digi from a laser printer, ensuring the ink has a solid finish – if it’s lined or faint, you’ll need to replace your black ink cartridge. You can then run the paper through a foiling machine – we’ve used the Heidi Swapp Minc. Create an ultra simple card by having a foiled sentiment and little else. For a more impactful design, tile a digi stamp on a Microsoft Word document before printing and foiling in the same way – you can see this in action on the beautiful olive green greeting.
Give them a modern spin
A couple of the cards have been digitally coloured before they’ve been printed. If you’re comfortable on a computer, why not try it? Keep the sentiment monochrome, then fill the surrounding section of the topper with colour – you don’t need a fancy programme for this, you can actually do it in Microsoft Paint. Once you’ve printed your sentiment, die cut it into a circle and matt onto various layers. Beverley has used the Papertrey Ink Limitless Layers Dies to create her loopy-edged circle.
Colour them in
If you want less of a digital process, traditionally colour in the designs. Here you can see Prismacolour pencils and alcohol markers at work. The shapes are really easy to shade in, but don’t just colour the obvious sections – Beverley has added a thin wash to the foliage lines on the red holly card. Play about with it!
Apply lines of double-sided tape to a blank and sprinkle with fine glitter for a glitzy touch
