Ten Creative Ways To Use Digital Stamps: Idea Six and Project Life Week 45

For today's idea, I used both new November Release sets from

One of the awesome things about digital stamps, or png files, is that you can create a clipping mask and change the shape of anything you want to layer over it!! This would be labor intensive to create with physical product, but it only takes four steps in the digital realm!

 See that "Sunset" word art? That is a digital stamp from Kellie Stamps, and I used the PNG file you get when you purchase the set, to make a clipping mask.

Step one: Open or create a 6x4 inch file in Photoshop as layer one.

Step Two: Open your PNG (digital stamp) file as layer two.

Step Three: Open your selected photo or pattern as layer three.

Step Four: Hover you mouse in between the photo layer, and the stamp layer in the layers palette, and right click to bring up pop-up menu and select "Create Clipping Mask".

That's it!!! Save your file to your computer , and you have a custom clipping mask with your desired photo or pattern behind it!! Love this about digital stamps!!  So RAD!

  2. Great tutorial! Thanks a lot. I see you are using a Photoshop for making your stamps. So I can advise you to add some HDR effects with special photoshop plugins. It really can add more colors to your pics.
