I am so super excited to share some of the new designs that Lisa at Pretty Cute Stamps has come out with!! She put these adorable images in the shop this week and I thought they'd be perfect to whip up some adorable Valentines for some little family friends. I started off by opening up PicMonkey (one of my fav tools to work with digi stamps!) and adding a white jpeg. I simply saved a project life card to my computer and use it as a base. Then, I add layers to the white background by choosing to 'add an overlay' from my computer. I choose the PNG versions of the stamps and sentiments I want to add and arrange them as desired. Using the PNG version allows you to layer the images as if you were 'masking' them in regular stamping - but way easier! You can even change the colour of the image with a click! I coloured my sentiments and printed my animals in black. I even added a second adorable ostrich to the card on the bottom right and clicked the arrow button to flip him so they were facing each other. Easy peasy! I then used my new Jane Davenport Magic Wand coloured pencils to colour in my images, adding some shading in different areas.
I used these wonderful food-safe Mini Glassine Bags from SpiegelMom Scraps to fill with some Conversation Hearts and added part of a doily, some red twine and a sequin heart from the Love Beats Sequin Mix.
I stamped Happy Valentines Day from the Be Mine Pretty Cute Stamps clear stamp set on the back of my cards and attached the goodies to the top of the card with a couple glue dots.
Here's a look at these amazing new digital stamps available right now at Pretty Cute Stamps!
Thanks so much for stopping by!! I hope you have a wonderful Monday!
