HEY FRIENDS! So here’s a news flash! I’ve been looking through my craft supplies and have started destashing some of my older stamps. I’m a one and done kind of crafter – I rarely color the same image twice so I have lots of stamps that I’ve colored once and will probably never use again. I’m short on space so I have to stick to being a active crafter rather than a collector of craft supplies. So I have an ever growning album with my available stamps over in the Facebook group “De-stash to Re-stash” (you need to be logged into Facebook for the link to work). Go take a look if you’re interested! Lots of good deals on stamps you know and love!
So today, I’m featuring the Two Penguin Chicks (merged) digital stamp from Mo’s Digital Pencil. In the meantime, I’ve been working through my stash of digital stamp, particularly those from Mo’s Digital Pencil. I like working with digital images because I’m really short on physical storage space and digital stamps are easy to store on my computer. This particular stamp includes separate images of two chicks, though obviously I’m only featuring one of them here.
I wanted to keep the card design fairly simply. To be honest, I just wanted to color and not worry about design so as you’ll see, I stuck to one of my tried and true layouts. And as always, I’ve linked supplies with compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.
TWO PENGUIN CHICKS
- Two Penguin Chicks (merged) | Mo’s Digital Pencil
- Christmas Sentiments | Penny Black
- Chunky A2 Scalloped Rectanges | Simon Says Stamp
The image was printed on Hammermill cardstock. If you’re hesitant to use digital stamps, check out my video over on my YouTube channel showing how I print digital stamps for Power Poppy. The image was colored with Copic markers (see list below). After I finished coloring the image, I used Versafine Ink to stamp a sentiment from the Christmas Sentiments stamp set. I trimmed the panel with the second largest die in the Chunky A2 Scalloped Rectanges die set and backed it with craft foam for dimension. Next, I cut a piece of design paper to 4.25″ x 5.5″ and glued it to the front of an A2 cardbase. I finished by assembling the layers as shown.
That’s all for me today! See you again soon!
