I've Been Published - a hybrid card in S&SA April 2011 issue

If you aren’t a regular subscriber of Scrap & Stamp Arts magazine, you will have to head to Barnes & Noble to pick up the April 2011 issue. Although I have taken a hiatus from writing due to being a bit swamped right now, one of my teal & black cards was included in a challenge section. This is a hybrid card which means it contains digital graphics combined with traditional cardmaking techniques and supplies. One really cool thing I did with one of the designs was to reverse part of it out repeatedly on a block of black. I printed it out and punched a decorative border punch down the side of it and added it to my card front...just one of the many fun ways to used digi designs and brushes. The main floral design is outlined b&w art in that set. I added the light grey shading on computer before printing it out so I didn't have to color within the lines. The pinstripe paper is from Doodlebug Designs and the verse is from a retired Stampin’ Up!® set.

Here is what fun items are included in the Hip & Happy set:

This still remains one of the favorite sets that I have designed because it is lighthearted
 and fun. I would love to see what you can create with this set of digi stamps. 
Also, check out these two companion sets,
