No it is not my birthday….. only wishing, birthdays are always nice days, so I wanted one!!!  Yeah!!

Now this is a pretty little card with…. a digi stamp by Laurenscraft, woo hoo and you can pick him up at the end of this blog post.

Another Birthday Digi by Laurenscraft

A simple Monochromatic card in shades of purple.  Image is coloured with watercolour pencils.  By using a Cuttlebug Embossing Folder inked with Ranger Distress Ink Dustry Concord results in a fabulous background in colour and white.  I used a brayer to apply the ink to the EF, it gives a more even application, although dye ink does tend to give a mottled result, but is so easy to clean.  The alternative is to use pigment ink, giving great coverage, but oh it is hard to clean.

Birthday card with embossed bg.

The card is embellished with purple ribbon, baby rhinestones, a little bow, butterflies, a flower and hat pins inserted into the bow.

My friend Sam has gotten me hooked on hatpins, swap hostess extraordinaire and enabler, that is her.   Go have a looksie at Sam’s Blog, Cards by Sam, she does beautiful work!!  I just don’t seem to make many cards that do not have pins in them.  I am really starting to like busy cards, although I am still not sure if this is my style.

Ok so now we are up to the bit you were waiting for.  My friend Lisa has the most wonderful husband, Tony, and he makes digi stamps for her.  Lisa gives them out too, so go check her blog out, Crafting Cottage.  Just remember to give credit when you use them and link to her blog if possible please.  The other day I was skyping with Lisa and asked her what program he used for creating them.  Up till then I was using paint, which is ok but a bit … you know…

So we can thank Tony for this digi because I have moved into the real world of ‘proper’ graphics programs and I am in heaven!!! I can even use my little tablet that has been in the cupboard for about 4 years!!

So this is in .PNG format, you can insert it into a Word document and print from there.  You can also resize it if need be.  It prints six on the page.

Just click on the image and it will open to another screen, then save it to your computer, remember where you put it!!  When you want to use it, just open a Word document and insert the image in there, this will put the six images on a page for you to print out, or you can resize it by clicking on the little handles while holding the Shift key down.  I have cut mine with a 5.5cm circle from the original size.

You will find that most of my digis will be circular shapes or maybe an oval or sometimes a square.  I like circles 😉

Have fun!!

Hugs  Lauren ♥♥

Testing the Digi Freebie

Hi Everyone,

It has been busy the last few days, but I wanted to try a digi, I often make my own sentiments and like them to fit into a 4cm circle die.  So here is one of my favs that I have been using for a while.

Hope you like it.  You are welcome to download it if you wish.  I am new to this and have just saved my digi to a JPG that I use with no worries, so I hope the trip to the blog does not make it muck up.  I think all digis need and outing once in a while!!

Enjoy the moments Laurenscraft
