Tutorial Part 1 of 2 - Printing Digi's on Designer Paper

Welcome to Tutorial Part 1 of 2. The card above was a the Cardinal digi printed on designer paper, colored and embossed to what you see here. Grab a couple of your favorite beverage and read along! If you have any questions, please email me or post them below. Part 2 of 2 will be posted tomorrow. Same time, same place! :)

This is a before shot of the Stampin Up Designer paper I used to print the Cardinals on. It was 12 x 12 and I did cut it down to 8-1/2 x 11 to fit in my printer.

It is hard to see, but it's there. This image works well for this technique since the majority of it was embossed.

I printed 2 images side by side on the green paper and then also on white card stock. I wanted to cut the cardinals out so they did not have the green star pattern on their bodies.

First, I colored the pine needs with Copics G28. Then I used my super OLD embossing pen that I love to put the embossing fluid where I wanted my embossing powder to stick. It has a blue tint so you can see where I used it. Yes, I hate to admit it but this pen has to be about 10 years old!

I poured on Snowflake Embossing Tinsel, shook the excess back into the container and heat set the glittery powder.

I added Star Dust Stickles to the star shapes on the background designer paper.

Here, I colored the Cardinals on the White card stock with Copics R27 and blended with the Colorless blender. I cut them out with my craft knife and glued them in place.

I used Scor-Tape to frame the image.
This completes Part 1 of 2. Tomorrow I will show you how I made the real wood window frame.
Have a wonderful day!!
