Hello crafty friends! I’m super excited to announce that our first four new digi stamps have hit the store! But before we get to them, we have another little surprise! Today we have the talented Guest Designer Jennifer Rustioni sharing her gorgeous card inspiration with us!!
As most of you know Jennifer‘s creations are always so mesmerizing! Her no-line coloring techniques are off the charts! Even though Christmas is now over, it is never too late to look at another one of her beautiful Christmas Card inspirations!
She chose a kraft card stock (Neenah Desert Storm) for her card. This adorable image is from the Greetings From Santa stamp set.
At first I thought it was done using watercolors but it was actually Copics that did the trick. It is almost hard to imagine that the Copics can create this watercolor vibe with such a soft dreamy tone and so much dimension! The kraft cardstock just elevates the look!
Mimi uses the software Pixelmator Pro for Macs for designing her card. For those of you who are not familiar with Digital Stamps, you do not need any fancy programme to open or work with them. Even a simple programme like Word can be used to play around with the images and designing your card!
I just love the scene! I love how she modify the Big Ben image from the set to create a much wider image for the background! I like how she positioned the big red bus in front of the building as it creates depth to the card!
Another good thing about digital stamps is that you can copy and paste them easily as many times as you want. Here she copied a bunch of the potted plants to create the look of a street café – so clever!
