Pretty Cute Stamps June 2016 New Release Blog Hop!

Thanks so much for joining us for the June 2016 Digital Stamp Release Blog Hop, where we are all sharing projects featuring the new digital stamps this month that are now available in the Pretty Cute Stamps Store!

If you came from Lena's Blog, you are in the right place. If you just stumbled across this post and would like to start from the beginning, please visit the Pretty Cute Stamps Blog

For my project for the hop, I've used the Happy As A Clam stamp set to create this cute card. I coloured this cutie in with Prismacolor and Hobby Colour markers before popping him up on my layered tag. The Shello! sentiment from the set was printed directly onto patterned paper. I used some papers from a 6x6 Simple Stories paper pad as well as some Recollections resist paper that I sponged with Distress Inks in Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers and Blueprint Sketch. Some pretty pearls and gold stars finished off my card!

In this close up you can see the glittery effect from the Gelliroll pen that I put over my coloured image. I'm thinking of all the great colour combos I could do this cute little digi stamp in!

Inside, I used this cute sentiment, printed on white cardstock, and layered it over some patterned paper. I fussy cut some fish from the patterned paper I used on the front of the card and layered them on.

Here's how I added the cute little face onto my shellfish -
1) Open image in PicMonkey (a free software that opens in your browser - no downloading required) by clicking "edit" and then choosing the jpeg of your image - the shellfish for this card.
2) On the left of the screen you have editing choices - click on the butterfly, which is "overlays" and click "choose your own" at the top of the editor.
3) Choose the PNG version of the face you want to add, click "open" and then it will automatically pop open on top of your shellfish. You can resize the face at this point to fit.
4) Click "save", then "save to computer" and change the file name so that the original file is not overwritten, eg: clam with happy face, etc.
5) Print, colour and admire!

You can use these steps to add any sentiments or digital stamps directly to your photos, add sentiments inside the digi stamps, etc! So easy!
