A Project Life card using SC Digital Stamps.

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!

Happy Crafting!

Handmade Project life cards

Happy Wednesday! Here I am again with this week’s hand made project life cards. This batch is for my February swap partner (she loves aqua and peacocks). I ended up liking the viewmaster weekly card so much that I made one for my week 4 (which is the one pictured) I included a bunch of cut out numbers for her card so she could use it for any week she would like. I think I might try slipping some index size prints in the viewmaster die cut, something I will try at the end of the week.

For both these sets of cards I used my Silhouette for the die cuts and  used my Sakura glitter pen, some chalk ink, a few stamps, and my tiny attacher

I enjoy being able to be creative with the PL cards but also just grabbing ready made ones and get the week done, I guess it will just depend on how busy I am in any given week.
