A handy tip for using digital stamps…

CGDsendingloveThis sweet and simple card using one of the adorable Chicken Girl Design images was another one that Paper Crafts did not pick up in the last pub call, so I can share it with you now.

One of the things I love about digital stamps is that you can manipulate them. You can make them bigger or smaller, and you can also move things around if you want to. The sentiment in this digi-stamp is actually below the image. I moved it to the side with a sweet little trick that doesn’t require any fancy image editing software. In a MS Word document, I placed the stamp on the page twice. On one, I used the Crop tool to eliminate the words, and on the other I cropped out the image. Then I just moved the words next to the remaining image.

I colored it with Copic markers picked to coordinate with the lovely DeLovely paper.

This image, as well as all of the other Chicken Girl Design stamps are available exclusively at i {heart} papers, and you should head over there NOW because Kate has put almost 800 items on sale. Seriously, I’m talking about some DEEP discounts, including almost all of the stamps and 12”x12” papers!!! If you’re looking for bargains, head over there while the gettin’s good.

Hope you all enjoy the long weekend coming up!
