Using IBS Digis

Happy Monday!

For my Inspired by Stamping post today, I have two cards using the two free digi images included in the Inspired by Stamping July Newsletter. If you aren’t signed up to receive the Newsletter, please sign-up here so you don’t miss all the extra Inspired by Stamping news and freebies included each month.


Here is my first card:


The Vintage Floral Paper Pad is perfect for a pretty, feminine card. The paper is so beautiful it ‘shines on its own’ and takes ‘center stage’ on the front of the card. I added one butterfly, from the Butterflies stamp set, which was popped-up with a dimensional. The White Fabric Tape was lightly sponged with pink ink.

Where is the digi image you ask? Here, on the inside:


The digi rose was printed and colored with alcohol markers (I used a Canon printer and the ink did not smear with the markers). Digi images can be resized, and I printed this one smaller than the original file. A strip of the Vintage Floral paper and sponged White Fabric Tape finish off the inside.

Here is my second card:


Did you know that you can change the colors of digi images? I work with digi images in Word, and color is an option. As I wanted a monochromatic card, I printed the image in a taupe shade. The second largest Fancy Label Dies 1 was used to cut the image, which was printed at actual size. The background paper is from the Spring Lilacs Paper Pad and the sentiment is from the Tulip Bouquet stamp set.

Here is the inside:


I printed the rose image directly on the card base. In keeping with the monochromatic tone of the card, I opted not to color the rose and added a strip of the Spring Lilacs paper across the bottom.

The two freebie digis are from the Flowers Bloom stamp set, which you can see/purchase here. How awesome to have both the stamp set and digis to use together.

That’s it for me today. I hope my information on using digi images was helpful. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks for stopping by!

Great cards, Lisa! Thanks for showing how nice digis can be. I'm at the point where I only use digis anymore. They're just so much easier and convenient—no messing with ink, can resize to fit my project, and no problems with storage.
