MY FREEBIE FOR YOU
Diane Noble (That's me!)
My Samples for Today: (See yesterday's projects HERE if you missed it.)
I am still totally enamored with bingo card ephemera. They just make such fun nostalgic embellishments to any card or project. Using the image and sentiment from Garden Gifts, I printed all my elements for this card on SU Naturals Ivory cardstock. It's one of my all time favorite cardstock colors. I distressed each piece heavily to give a little more earthy look to my project.
I use nearly all my digi creations in a more traditional way. Rather than creating fully digital projects, I print them out and use them as I would hand-stamped images. To me, that's the best of both worlds. Then by adding other real embellishments, like the butterfly and brad, some people would never guess I've even used digital images.
Another amazing advantage of digital stamps is the flexibility to resize, flip and rotate. By doing this you can have hundreds of image possibilities from only a few original digis. Here I created my own digi background dp, by just covering the top half of a word document sheet with different sizes of the three looped flowers in Doodle Garden color set. You can use any image in any set and create your own scenes or background dp like this.
I used the ruffled flower as the main image, but copied 4 images the same size. The I cut out the ruffled "layers" and popped them up with dimensional foam. Highlighting them with Dazzling Diamonds glitter helps make the layers pop. The sentiment is from our Garden Inspirations Sentiment set.
My final sample is as simple as simple can be, but I think it's bright and cheery too. This project showcases the Pot of Tulips set. I used the color flowers, the digi paper, and one of the sentiments that comes with the set. I love these sets, because you get "it all" in one set...everything you need for the basics of your project.
When printed from my printer, the tulips match one of my favorite SU cardstock colors...Calypso Coral...and I still had some of their delightful skinny organdy ribbon in the same color.
