Ten Creative Ways To Use Digital Stamps, Idea Three

Thanks for joining me today, for the third post in this series. 


For this week's post, we are focusing on ways to use your digital stamps, or PNG files as captions. 

 SUPPLIES: Kellie Stamps Digital sets, "Kiddo",  Project Life® Core Kit: Heidi Swapp Prismatic, wood veneer: Pinkfresh Studios from Clique Kits. I created captions with the "So Proud" Kellie Stamp, and the "You're Awesome". 

You can create your own caption at the top of a blank 3x4  (or any size you want!) card and leave space for journaling. I created this card in Adobe Photoshop, but any program that allows you to import PNG or JPEG files will work. I simply add shapes and color them in with the eyedropper tool in Photoshop, like the two triangles above. I  clicked the eyedropper on my son's shirt, and got the magenta color that coordinated with the Heidi Swapp Prismatic Project Life® cards. The possibilities are endless, and you are only limited by the number of shapes you can imagine. 

If you don't have any journaling, but need a filler card, you can move the shape with the digital stamp to the center of the card. Move it anywhere you like, that's the beauty of digital stamps!  Click Edit, or undo and try again! 

You can also use digital stamps to create captions on your photos. I like to place them in the blurry background, as I did here with the Kellie Stamps Digital "Kiddo" set. You can draw attention to a specific feature in the photo by your placement. Here, attention is focused on her eye by lining the stamp up with her eyes. 

Try out some digital stamping , and creating journaling or filler cards with your digital supplies. It definitely adds to your crafty arsenal and makes your supplies stretch farther.

Thank you for joining me today!
