These adorable Hunkydory digi stamps make for seriously cute and characterful Christmas cards. They work perfectly individually as a focus or shrunk down into a scene. Why not pair them with marker pens, stencils or sequins? The choice is yours. You’ll also find a bonus sentiment in your pack – oh, handy! So, without further ado, consult our top tips below, then get cracking on Claire Richards’ projects.

If you want to go all out, copy Claire’s ‘Tis the season’ card. A twist on the traditional shaker card, rather than making a separate shaker element, Claire has made the entire card into a shaker using the plastic packaging from one of her stamp sets – genius! Simply slip a panel of card into a clear sleeve, fill with sequins, seal, then mount onto a blank. What a great way to save on plastic waste too.
The great thing about our digi stamps is that you can really show off your colour blending skills. Before you get started, think about which direction the light source is coming from to help you determine the light and dark areas. For seamless blends, Claire has used a smooth white cardstock and Copic marker pens. If you’re new to Copics, we recommend sticking to shades from the same numbering family.
Colouring in can get a little messy. Trust us, it happens to the best of us. Next time you accidentally slip and colour outside of the lines, don’t panic as we’ve got a little trick up our sleeve. Rather than starting again, just grab a white gel pen once you’ve finished colouring, then go around the edges to cover and erase any slip-ups. It works a treat. Shh, no one will ever notice!
