Candles and Cake with Carla


Check out the two fabulous birthday cards that Carla created with the Make A Wish digital stamp set. The first one has an awesome gold splattered background that shines and shimmers in the light. She has coloured the image with pencils to create a delicious-looking (and calorie-free) cupcake that would be most welcome at any party. For her second card, she used four of the candles from the set, printed on kraft card stock and coloured with a collection of colourful pencils.

Holiday Cruisin'


How cute is this little red VW, headed out to the snowy forest to collect a pretty tree for Christmas? Carla has coloured the little car with pencils and then added a wonderful die cut background of snowy hills and frosty pine trees. A simple sentiment finishes her holiday card perfectly.

A Truck Load of Cash


Okay, so not exactly cash, but in some of my circles chocolate coins are definitely considered currency, perhaps even more valuable than the real thing! And now I have a cute little holder in which to gift them.


I started by printing four of the pre-coloured red trucks from the Cruisin' set, which is our featured Encore digital stamp set for this month. I have flipped two horizontally so I can sandwich them together for a double-sided look.


The next step is to fussy cut around the images, right up against the outline and including each of the windows.


Next, adhere two trucks together so they have a back and front. I also added a small piece of acetate over each window by sandwiching it between the images and holding it in place with strong glue and double sided tape.


The box is created with a small piece of card stock, cut to fit along the length of each vehicle. I glued the tabs to the outside of the box where they will be covered by each image.


Use strong glue or double-sided tape to adhere the trucks to either side of the box. Make sure the adhesive is completely dry before you load up the box or you might find it doesn't hold.

Cruisin' With Karin


This month we're revisiting one of our old favourite digital stamp
sets... Cruisin'. Perfect for anyone who loves a great vintage car.


Karin has used the pick-up truck image from this month's encore set, combined with one of the digital stamps from the Oh Night Divine set, to create a fabulous easel Christmas card. She's used a beautiful die cut poinsettia as the anchor to hold the card open.


Karin created a second card featuring the little blue sports car from the Cruisin' set of digital stamps. She also created a strip of patterned paper by combining two of the line drawn images in a repeating pattern.


Karin has put together a colouring guide for those who are curious about the mediums she used for her cards. To see more of Karin's work, don't forget to visit her blog - you can find a link in the sidebar.

Artistic Effects

There are lots of advantages to using digital stamps, from resizing and flipping to skewing and stretching. One of my favourites is adding artistic effects to pre-coloured images in MSWord. There are lots of options for picture effects, from mosaic tiles to black and white sketches.
