After coloring with copic markers I added some details with prisma color pencils.

There are a few dots in the design I added a few Nuvo drops on it. I then added the sentiment die cut from white and black cardstock. The sentiment is from “Thanks a latte” Phrase die by CUTplorations. To finish the card i adhered the colored panel on a white card base.

Card 2: Floral card

STAMPlorations- Fun uses of Digi stamps

Hello There!

I am so glad you are joining me! Today I have some amazing projects in addition to a card to share with you that I made using the digital stamps by STAMPLorations.

So glad you joined in the Blog Hop! I am excited to be guest designing for STAMPlorations and showcasing their lovely digi stamps. Comment here and on our guest designers’ personal blogs as well as the STAMPlorations Blog for a chance to win a $15 gift code to use on either the STAMPlorations digital store or main store — winner’s choice..

This one is a super long post so brace yourself!!

I got asked about digital stamps so I have shared a few things here in brief.

WHAT ARE DIGITAL STAMPS & HOW TO USE

Digital stamps (also called Digistamps) are images made available online by companies & illustrators for purchase and/or download by users. After downloading the image, you can print and used on your projects as you please. I encourage you to explore the Digital stamps by STAMPLorations.

ADVANTAGES WITH DIGITAL STAMPS

  • Vide range & variety of Images, Sentiments, Designs, Styles & Categories
  • Easily available for purchase and/or download
  • Instant Delivery, No Shipping charges or location constraints
  • Cost less
  • Free digital stamps are made available by generous companies & illustrators. You could try a few by STAMPLorations here.
  • Easy to change its size or flip it or rotate it or create mirror images or create multiples. It’s also easy to enlarge and use only a portion of the Digital Stamp. All this could be done using simple editors on computers or mobiles.
  • Easy to Store, Organize & Retrieve
  • You could try online coloring using simple tools on computers or mobiles.
  • Build a complex design or whole card scene by using multiple stamps. Techniques like overlapping, masking, partial stamping and overlaying of images / sentiments are easy to do digitally.
  • These stamps can be used any number of times and they won’t deteriorate
  • No cleaning or maintenance required for stamps
  • Easy to share with crafty friends all over the world.
  • Can be used on any type of paper, pretty much as traditional stamping. It’s just paper needs to be printer friendly (should not be too thick)

LOOKOUTS WITH DIGITAL STAMPS (You would want to read this)

  • You need to have basic knowledge of computers or image editor software (there are many videos and instructions available online on how to use the digital stamps)
  • The paper / cardstock needs to be printer friendly
  • The printer ink needs to be compatible to your medium of coloring

So here are the projects I created using Digital Stamps by STAMPlorations. I made projects other than a card.

PROJECT No. 1: Name Cards for Tables

1.jpg

For this project I printed an image “Spring Blooms Square Frame” from the “Coffee cup and Spring blooms” Digital Stamp bundle by STAMPLorations.

n3.JPG

This bundle consists of 5 gorgeous designs that are so versatile. This set includes designs in oval, circular & square shapes that are both elegant & fun. Additionally there are 5 tags designs that come along with this set.

As mentioned above, after downloading the image I could easily resize the digistamp and made multiple copies of it. I then added names to each copy in a fancy font of my choice. I used ‘MS Word’ for doing all this on my computer.

n4.JPG

Once I was happy with my digital images, I printed all the images on a water color cardstock and colored the image using my Zig Real Brush Markers.

I then cut the name cards and folded them to finish the projects.

n2.JPG

Are you a Marvel Fan?? If yes, this could be fun for you. My son and I am fans of Marvel universe and we had so much fun coming up names for the cards.

At Table 2 we have –

  • Mr. Peter Parker – SpiderMan
  • Ms. Carol Danvers – Captain Marvel
  • Mr. Bruce Banner – Hulk

At Table 3 we have-

  • Mr. Tony Stark – IronMan
  • Ms. Natasha Romanoff – Black Widow
  • Mr. Wade Wilson – Deadpool

Now which table would you prefer to be at??? Do let me know.

Here you see me making Name cards for Tables, but one could use similar process to print fancy labels as well.

PROJECY No. 2: Fridge magnet & décor for Craft lovers

4.jpg

For this project I printed an image “Spring Blooms Oval Frame” from the “Coffee cup and Spring blooms” Digital Stamp bundle by STAMPLorations. This stamp is from the same set as Project 1 and the process is pretty similar too.

IMG_1764.JPG

 After downloading the image, I resized the digistamp and made another copy of it. I then added some fun crafty quotes to each copy in a fancy font of my choice. I used ‘MS Word’ for doing all this on my computer.

IMG_1767.JPG

 Once I was happy with my digital images I printed both the images on a water color cardstock and colored the image using my Zig Real Brush Markers

IMG_1763.JPG

 I then cut the oval shapes and added a ribbon in the back so that these crafty décors can be hanged. I also added a magnet on the back side to make these multipurpose. Now these can be used as fridge magnets as well or stuck on any metal.

PROJECT No. 3: Bookmark

3.jpg

For this project I printed an image called “Coffee and Roses Textbg Heart” from the “Coffee & Roses” Digital Stamp bundle by STAMPLorations. This bundle consists of 15 amazing images with beautiful roses and cups. This includes 5 tags designs as well.

This particular floral design comes with the background script which adds so much interest to the overall look.

b2.JPG

After downloading the image, I resized the digistamp suitable for a bookmark. I used ‘MS Word’ for doing all this on my computer.

Once I was happy with my digital image I printed it on a water color cardstock and colored the image using my water colors.

b3.JPG

I then die cut the image using a Stiched banner die and punched a hole on top to add ribbon.

PROJECT No. 4 : Floral Greeting Card for Coffee Lover

2.jpg

For this project I printed an image called “Coffee and Roses Textbg Heart” from the “Coffee & Roses” Digital Stamp bundle by STAMPLorations. This is the same set at the above book mark.

c2.JPG

First I printed the image from the “Coffee & Roses” Digital Stamp on a water color cardstock and colored the image using my water colors.

I then added the sentiment in black using the “Thanks a Latte” Phare die by CUTplorations

c3

To finish the card, I adhered the colored panel on to a black card base.

STAMPlorations – Digital Stamps

Hello There!

It’s Bharati here and welcome to my blog. So glad you joined in.

Today i am really excited to share the projects I made using digital stamps from STAMPlorations. It feels wonderful to be on the design team of STAMPlorations Digital  along with other fabulosly talented ladies. Thank you Shery for the opportunity.

Here’s Project 1 : Floral Card colored with Alcohol markers and Pencil Colors

1a

If you wanna make a card like this, all you have to do is visiti the page of STAMPlorations Digital Stamps. Yes! this stamp is absolutely Free! Its called FREE Love/Spring Themed A2 Card Front. While you are there, i am encourage you to explore the site with such gorgeous designs and look for your choice.

This particular floral design comes with the background script which adds so much interest to the overall look. So, all i had to do was to print the stamp in a desirable size on a cradstock, I start coloring.

2.JPG

If you know me well, you know how I love coloring on the go. So this beauty was colored sitting a cozy lil cofee shop facing the sea, listening to my a book. I did take a lot of time to reach the finished look but all that time coloring, enjoying the book and some coffee was pure bliss. Felt, so relaxed and refreshed.

3.JPG

I used copic markers to color the images and added the details with prisma color pencils.

So in the begining, I first colored all the areas that I wanted to be dark, with my drakest of the copic combos. I then moved the color using the lighter colors from the same combo. After coloring with copics, i added details , shading and shadows with color pencils.

4.JPG

I finally, colored the background in light blue color using prisma color pencil. Once the cloring was done I adhered the entire card front on a pale pink card stock and later on a black card base.

5.JPG

For finising touches I added a few sequins here and there. I hope you like the coloring and the finished card.

PROJECT 2 : Card for Coffee lovers -suitable for all occasions

Are you a coffee lover? I am and any friend of coffee is a friend of mine !

I was instantly in love with the Bloomdala Coffee Cup stamps from the moment i saw these. Actually these come in a  set of 6 and are simply stunning designs.

1a.JPG

To make this card i first printed one of the cups from the beautiful Bloomdala Coffee Cup stamps  on to a cardstock and colored it using copic markers and pencil colors.

2.JPG

I then fussy cut the image and adhered it to a black card base. I love how the colorful cup pops against the black.

3.JPGFor the sentiment I inked a card panel with bright green ink and die cut from it using  the CUTplorations die set Coffee love. I die cut the same sentiment from a white cardstock as well and layered it underneath the colored sentiment.

5

To finish the card i added a few glitter drops using nuvo glitter drops and adhered the whole panel to a white card base.
