Our First Digital Stamps Collection is HERE!

Hello crafty friends! I’m super excited to announce that our first four new digi stamps have hit the store! But before we get to them, we have another little surprise! Today we have the talented Guest Designer Jennifer Rustioni sharing her gorgeous card inspiration with us!!

As most of you know Jennifer‘s creations are always so mesmerizing! Her no-line coloring techniques are off the charts! Even though Christmas is now over, it is never too late to look at another one of her beautiful Christmas Card inspirations!

She chose a kraft card stock (Neenah Desert Storm) for her card. This adorable image is from the Greetings From Santa stamp set.

At first I thought it was done using watercolors but it was actually Copics that did the trick. It is almost hard to imagine that the Copics can create this watercolor vibe with such a soft dreamy tone and so much dimension! The kraft cardstock just elevates the look!

Today, we also have Mimi who’s created a very inspiring sample using one of our new Digital Stamp set, In Love With London.

Mimi uses the software Pixelmator Pro for Macs for designing her card. For those of you who are not familiar with Digital Stamps, you do not need any fancy programme to open or work with them. Even a simple programme like Word can be used to play around with the images and designing your card!

I just love the scene! I love how she modify the Big Ben image from the set to create a much wider image for the background! I like how she positioned the big red bus in front of the building as it creates depth to the card!

Another good thing about digital stamps is that you can copy and paste them easily as many times as you want. Here she copied a bunch of the potted plants to create the look of a street café – so clever!

Thank you so much Jennifer and Mimi, your inspirations are so charming!

Thank you for stopping by, head over to ppstamps.com to check out the new collection of digis now!

A Warm Christmas Greeting with Guest Designer Cheryl!

Happy Friday everyone! We are super excited to have Cheryl Luu Guest Designing for us today!

This gorgeous background was created using the Poinsettia Stencils 360°™ together with the Stencils 360°™ tool. By simply ink blending the individual elements on the stencil with different colors (no masking needed), and rotating it at 45 degree intervals, this beautiful poinsettia wreath is complete!

I just love the traditional Christmas color palette, so bright and festive!

The adorable Mr and Mrs Claus and the sentiment are from the Greetings From Santa stamp set. Cheryl did an awesome job coloring this image!

The pop of gold, the contrasting sentiment strip in black and the hearts embellishments tie everything together flawlessly!

Thank you so much Cheryl! Your card is amazing!

Greetings From Santa

Smile! Santa’s coming to town! This 4” x 4” clear stamp set is THE perfect option for everyone on your holiday card list! Let this adorable couple bring your loved ones the warmest holiday wishes!

I ink blended this background using Distress Oxides in Black Soot, Pine Needles and Cracked Pistachio for an aurora palette.

I splattered some white ink for the added visual interest. I used the Fairyland Alphabet Dies on Santa Heavyweight Premium Cardstock to spell out my sentiment Merry X’Mas. My image was Copic colored and adhered to my panel with foam tape. To finished off I added some white gems to compliment the flurry backdrop.

For the second card I went for a totally different vibe. For the background I used some iridescent glitter gel on the Crystal Snowflakes Stencil.

I wanted to create a peaceful monotone so I colored my image in greyscale. I then white heat embossed sentiments on Grand Piano using sentiments from Magical Christmas Sentiments and adhere three of them onto the panel in a playful configuration.

A Better Place (Save the Earth) and Woodland Scene Builder Layered Dies

You can make a difference! Spread the importance of planting a tree by giving a handmade card! This whimsical stamp set is the perfect way to spread this very important message of saving the environment and loving our planet earth! This set coordinates with the Woodland Scene Builder layered die set. This specially designed layered dies also makes THE perfect background for all your adorable woodland creature stamps!

To set the scene I used the 3 dies on different colored cardstocks namely the Grand Piano, Hot Fudge, Apple Green and Christmas Tree. They layered together flawlessly to give wonderful dimension for the card.

For more details, I blended some Distress Oxides and added paint splatters on some of the pieces.

I then Copic colored the image and adhered it on the top. I also stamped out a heart warming sentiment “You Make the World a Better Place” on the inside to complete my card.

I hope you enjoyed today’s showcases and inspirations. Leave a comment below before you go and let me know which is your favorite card! Be sure to come back tomorrow for more Product Previews and Giveaways!
