How cute is this Little Dude with his Dino playmates?
I love, love, love using digital stamps! There are so many amazing designers all over the world offering quirky and unique digital stamp designs. I particularly like the stamps from Polkadoodles as they’re always so stinking cute without being too cutesy if you get my meaning!
I’ve print my digital stamps onto Winsor & Newton Bleedproof Marker paper. It’s bright white so my colours really pop and it also helps to stop the inks bleeding into each other.
I’ve coloured this little cutie with my Winsor & Newton BrushMarkers. Here’s the shade’s I’ve used:
I’m a big fan of First Edition papers but this Grand Plans stack has been in my stash for a while. I don’t seem to have made many cards for boys lately. But it was perfect for these Little Dudes digital stamps.
I’ve embellished my card with die cut stars. I love using my star dies for boys cards instead of flowers, they add the same “little bit of something” without being remotely girly. I’ve used the Star Flourish Die set from XCut.
A Little Embellishment
A little bit of bakers twine adds a textured element to the card. I’ve stuck the twine in place on the back of the card panel so that the raw ends are neatly covered.
I added a little further interest with a little knot around the three strands of bakers twine. I did try a bow but it looked too bulky and girly so I stuck to a simple knot.
You’re the Best Greeting
The Grand Plans Paper pack includes a sheet of wording which makes perfect greetings for cards. I really like it when co-ordinated greetings are included with paper packs, it’s so easy to create a perfectly matching greeting panel. I’ve just cut this one down to size and mounted it onto a scrap of paper. It’s stuck to the card with 3D foam pads to give it a bit of dimension.
Take a Peak Inside
I think it’s such a shame to receive a beautifully decorated card only to open it and be faced with a blank page. So I use more of my designer papers to decorate the insides of my cards. I mostly use scraps leftover from the main design and a 10cm square of plain paper to write a nice message onto.
