Sweet 'n Sassy is going DIGITAL!!!!


*Be sure to scroll down for my YMH posting*

Exciting news to share with you all today! Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps is making the move to all digital stamps! This is exciting on many points, a couple being we will be able to provide you with even more images and they will all be such a fantastic price there's no reason why you couldn't get them all! :) We are having a super fun Lots of Love blog hop today, so be sure to take some time to hop around today for your chance to win the entire January release!The full list is on my right sidebar, and it explains all details.

For my card I used a bit older digi called A Flower For You. Isn't it a sweet image? I colored her with my Copics and decided to try this card cut from my A Child's Year cartridge, which I just love. The sentiment is from Eskimo Kisses.

Digital stamps really are fun and versatile. The more I work with them I am learning little tricks here and there that I thought I'd share with you. One is it is super easy to re-size an image. This comes in handy quite a lot and makes the image a lot more versatile. I just import the image into my Word doc and click it. A box shows up around it and you can just use the handles around it to make it bigger or smaller. Simple!

The other discovery I made (which I'm sure I'm just slow in figuring this out *lol*) is that you do not have to use an entire sheet of cardstock each time you print out an image. You can use a scrap piece and just tape the edges down to a piece of printer paper and run it through. It's a good idea to first print the image on the printer paper and then line up your scrap piece of cardstock over that so you know exactly where to put your paper, but this way you can use up your entire sheet of cardstock. You could do paper piecing like this also.

Be sure to visit fellow DT member Deedee's blog and look through her tutorials she has on digital stamps, she has helped me a ton and can tell you how you can crop and even rotate or flip images! SO, if you haven't given digi stamping a try yet you should! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Very sweet card! Love how you colored your ladybug.

I have to say though that I will miss the clear stamps. I had really been looking forward to collecting the rest of your birth month flowers that way.
