Ten Creative Ways To Use Digital Stamps: Idea 4

Hello Friends!
This week we will look at idea number four.
White It Out.


One of the great things about using digital stamps, is that you don't have to buy every color of ink pad to use them, and I think it's a lot simpler to create white text with a digital stamp. I have tried several ink pads, but none of them gave me the crisp clean result of white digital stamps!

Supplies: Kellie Stamps Digital "I AM, You Are, We Are" set, and Studio Calico Project Life kit for October (Wink, Wink is the name) and letter stickers from the Project Life HSN kit "Just Add Color"

For this Week 42 Project Life® page, I used the Kellie Stamps digital set " I am, You are, We are" for the text on the top right photo "Liking". 

Step One:In Photoshop I simply go to File> Open> select desired digital stamp> Double Click To Open.
Step Two: Click on the stamp image in Photoshop to select it. In the Layers palette on the right, click and drag your digital stamp onto your project or photo. Then in the top header bar (with your digital stamp selected) go to Image>Hue/Saturation>and on the slider bar slide the lightness all the way to white. 

The courses I have completed this year in Adobe Photoshop, and Adobe Illustrator, have taught me that you use white text if your background is colored, and black text only if your background is white or very light. In other words, always use white text over a color, as in the Studio Calico Project Life® 3x4 cards above. That's super easy with digital stamps!!

Thank you for joining me today for this tip on the advantage of using digital stamps to "White It Out"!

Hugs, Artful Leigh


  1. I've been wanting to get more advanced lessons in PS and Illustrator. Did you take a class online?

    1. Yes, Angie, I took classes. Adobe online has classes and also has detailed Illustrator and Photoshop classes :)
