Like so many others I was disappointed that I was not able to purchase the “Lost Boys” march add on at Studio Calico. I did settle on purchasing the digital stamps to see what I could do with them. I never used digital stamps before and am fairly new to using the computer with my scrapbooking beyond journaling here and there.
I have had some of these silhouette pens since they first came out but never used them. Someone had mentioned how they loved using them for sketch designs for a swap that I was in so it gave me the idea to try it out with the digital stamps. I absolutely fell in love with these pens! I had so much fun playing with them that I used up all the ink in three of the colors while experimenting with different designs. Here is one that I made using the over the moon stamp image.
To make this card I used black cardstock and sketched the design with the silver silhouette pen (everything except the moon) then after sketching I lined up the moon and the correct size card shape. I removed the sketch part of the design and cut again using the blade. I backed the card with glitter paper and it turned out fantastic.
Here is another that is just a sketch design and some watercolor pencils, one of the first ones I did.
I also made a sketch only card with the instalove stamp image. I can’t believe how easy it was to use these digi-stamps. I made a bunch for two swaps I participated in, and made a few extras to share. Which brings me to a fun little give-away. Would you like some handmade project life cards from me? I have two different sets I would love to gift someone for their album. Simply leave me a comment below and let me know if there is any other special project life card I can design for you to add in with the cards I already have. I will pick two winners on Friday 3/22! This is open to international as well. Be sure to check back on Friday to find out if you are one of the winners!
****** Congrats to Usagi and Amy!********** Please email me your address ladies so I can get these cards out to you!
