Tiffany Doodles Sneaky Peeks!

Tiffany Doodles has been having sneak peeks of three of the newest floral digis that will go on sale in the store on Friday, January 28th.


Peeks of the angel trumpet and daphne have already been shared and today's peeks are the beautiful nicotiana from some of my fellow DT members. Aren't they gorgeous? You'll receive two digital images in a set, one of which fits inside of an oval shaped die.

I was planning to share peeks of my cards yesterday, but I was having major problems with the Copics smearing the digital images in certain areas. I tried heat setting, praying, muttering little curse words....

I emailed Tiffany to whine about my problem and she suggested that I emboss the image as soon as it came out of the printer. I've heard about stampers doing this but never tried it myself. Out of sheer frustration, I decided to give it a try.



I poured some clear embossing powder as soon, and I mean AS SOON as the card rolled out of the printer and lo and behold, the powder stuck! A quick zap with my heat gun and you'd think I used embossing ink.

I let it cool, and then colored it and there was no smearing at all! Hooray! Problem solved! And no damage to my Copics, too.


Here are the two cards I made with the daphne. Even though they're a day late, I managed to learn something new, and hope to share this tip with you if you ever have a problem with smearing digis. Thanks, Tiff!

Remember that the three new floral digis go on sale January 28th and if you purchase all three sets, you'll receive 10% off through the weekend. What a great deal!

Thanks for stopping by today! Enjoy the rest of your week...
