Mr Speaker

SAM_2848This is a recent make made for someone else.  I’ve taken to trawling digi stamp websites recently as I have had a number of projects I haven’t been able to find suitable images for.  For this design I again turned to the Doctor Digi Stamps as I loved the images I downloaded recently and they print and resize so well.  This design is called Mr Speaker and I love the humour behind it!

I coloured my image in using a combination of Promarkers and Flexmarkers and then mounted the image onto a few different sheets from the Limited Edition Craftwork Cards Vintage Finds Pad and used some matching candi which I have enhanced with glossy accents.  The final touch was a sentiment from my go to sentiment collection by Phill Martin.  It turned out well and the recipient was hopefully pleased with the card.

Here’s what I used:

Papers and candi: Limited edition vintage finds by Craftwork Cards

Wording: Sentimentally Yours by Phill Martin

My first foray into Digi Stamps!!

Can you believe it, yes, I’ve never used digi stamps before as I simply have not been able to get on with them.  However I had to change all that as I needed to make 2 cards for a family birthday and I didn’t have a suitable image to use.  It took me a while to find two that I liked and I downloaded and woah they come up, no problems there then! The test was the printing and…………they came out!  Every other time I have tried to use a digi stamp I have never had much success in printing.  So away I went with it!  Perfect…and well received I must say.  I won’t hesitate to go digital again if I am in search of something.  So here are the cards.


Cricket Derek for Dad, perfect!! Although this card wasn’t from me 🙂 I used my go to card stock and coloured card from my stash.  The image I coloured in using promarkers and flexmarkers and I stamped the name and used a sentiment from my craftwork cards stash.  Very simple once I got the hang of it!

Here’s what I used

SAM_2834I matted the jukebox image onto some card I found in my stash and used the Jukebox collection from craftwork cards to compliment the main design.  I then used card candi all around the card just to finish it off.  Perfect.

coloured card – stash, possibly bazzil basics but I am not sure

Papers, sentiment and card candi – Craftwork Cards Jukebox collection
