Pretty Cute Stamps July 2016 New Release Sneak Peeks!

I'm so excited to bring you a sneak peek at the July 2016 Digital Stamp release from Pretty Cute Stamps! 

For my project today I created a tag using the Wave Borders digital stamp set. This is a super cool set! It comes with the SVG files as well as the JPEG files for these borders! This means you can cut the waves out with an electronic diecutting machine as well as printing out your waves to colour in. I've combined both these techniques on my tag and love how it turned out!

I used my Cricut to cut out these wave borders in a rectangular shape on a two toned paper and then played around with how I might layer them! I also printed the digital stamps from my computer onto white cardstock - I love the stitching lines on this wave - and I used Distress Inks to add some colour to each layer.

This sweet sailboat and sentiment are also in the new releases, from the Sail Away digital stamp set. I coloured the sailboat with Prismacolour Markers and added some Stickles to the heart. I used some Fancy Pants Design beach paper and printed the sentiment directly onto it before cutting with a Spellbinders die. I found some brown string in my stash, which I wrapped around the bottom of my tag and also used at the top with my ribbon.

I used the Anchors Aweigh digital stamp set (another new release!!) as a cut file with my Cricut Explore and cut this anchor silhouette. I decided I wanted to add a little bling - so this fun embossing powder with green and gold flecks was perfect!

After layering my waves I used my fingers to lift the edges a bit to give some dimension. 

For the background I used clear embossing powder over a stenciled circle for my sun and added some pinks, oranges and blues to create a sunset. A few water droplets adds a pretty effect. The coordinating Distress Stain colours were perfect to colour in my seam binding ribbon and allowing it to dry after crinkling it up.

Be sure to head over to the Pretty Cute Stamps blog where you'll be amazed at all the awesome sneak peeks of the brand new releases available tomorrow! You'll be able to download this cute FREEBIE digi stamp while you're there!
