The Stamping Boutique

Such a beautiful image from The Stamping Boutique!

I love the yellow tones and had a good work out using my Copic markers! I’m happy with the way it came out, soft yet bold.

I’ve been having a lot of fun this past month on The Stamping Boutique’s Guest DT!

One of my favorite new images is Picket Fence. I used it to meet this week’s challenge at CASE Study.

CASE study challenge #34

Aren’t mini trees, topiary trees and big buckets of plants just cool?

The Stamping Boutique has a great digital stamp that you can do LOTS of cool things with! I worked with the “Plant” digi stamp to create this card for challenge #3, handmade flowers. This little just came to life with the punched flowers, vines and bling!

You still have a week to join in on this challenge, so take a chance!

Whether you believe it or not, Spring is coming! We set our clocks ahead this past weekend so we’ll be having daylight much later than we used to. Granted, we’ll be driving to work in the dark, but at least we’ll have sunshine when we leave work.

Here’s another digital stamp from The Stamping Boutique called Audrey in the rain. I used the glittered acetate technique that were on a couple cards of late. Hope you like it!

Check out the new challenge posted on the TSB Blog!

Even though I’m not Irish, I still enjoy the color green, shamrocks, leprechauns, pots of gold and rainbows!

Here’s another glittered acetate card using The Stamping Boutique’s Horseshoe digital stamp. The sketch that I used for this card came from TSB’s Digi Day at the Paper Craft Planet. Fun stuff!

I’ve been playing with digi stamps, acetate and glitter again! Here is the first in a series of glittered acetate projects using The Stamping Boutique and Michelle Perkett Studio digital stamps.

The technique is not hard, you just need some patience and attention to detail. Here’s how to do it…

Print a digital stamp on acetate. I use a laser printer and laser transparencies. Using a fine tip on a Crystal Lacquer bottle (the tips are sold separately), choose the first color and sections of the image that you want to be that color, and add Crystal Lacquer to that area on the dull side (back). If you have text, mirror the image before printing. Sprinkle on the glitter and shake off any excess. Repeat until the image has the amount of color and glitter for the design. Set aside and let it dry.

When it’s dry, cut to size. Brush the glittered side with a soft goat hair brush to remove excess glitter. Drop small amounts of lacquer on top of the glitter and adhere to backing paper. Usually white or cream works well to set off the glitter and detailed image. Embellish and you’re done!

Getting closer, but still over a month away! Yes, Easter is later this year than it normally is, so here is a layout to showcase a super cute digital stamp from The Stamping Boutique.

If you’ve noticed a couple extra blinkies showing up in the right side bar, it’s because I’m LUCKY to be a Guest Designer for The Stamping Boutique this month!!! Thank you to Tracey for having me and offering such great digital stamps to show off!

The Stamping Boutique is having a bi-weekly challenge with the first kicking off last week. You still have time to enter as the challenge closes on Sunday, so get to it!
