Pretty Cute Stamps October New Release Blog Hop with Video!!

Thanks so much for joining us for the October 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 the Noe'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 Fall In Love stamp set to create a pocket page scrapbook layout using photos from a wonderful morning my husband and I went on a little date - walking in the fall weather. Fall does not last long here in Calgary, Alberta Canada. All of sudden the leaves have turned and then a couple weeks later - depending on how much wind we get - it seems like they're gone. So when we do see those colours changing we run out to enjoy the weather and get some photos!

After I put my photos into the pocket page I created this journaling card using the Fall In Love digital stamp. I printed it out in a light vanilla ink colour using Pic Monkey so that I could colour it in with Prismacolor and Hobby Colour Markers (both alcohol based) using a no-line technique. The stamped image seems to disappear! I went over the FALL sentiment with a gold gel pen and then added some sequins from the Day In The Woods collection from SpiegelMom Scraps. Lastly, I layered it onto a Project Life card from the Seasons Collection.

I printed hearts and leaves out from the digital stamp set, varying the sizes - one of the awesome things about digital stamps! I added some Project Life embellishments and some more pretty sequins!

Here's a look at the leaves I added to my journaling card - you can use your printed and coloured images just as you would stickers!

I've made a little video where you can see how to print a digital stamp out in a neutral colour to make your own no-line colouring project, as well as seeing how I organize my digital stamps! Click here to see the video. Don't forget to Like and Subscribe!
