Forest Animals Digi Stamps Blog Hop

Hello! I'm so excited to be part of this blog hop for Jeanin's (Some Bits and Pieces) new and FREE digital stamps, Forest Friends. 


If you're on the hop, you should have arrived here from Nina, and if you would like to join the hop from the beginning, head back to Jeanin at the beginning so she can show you her fab and funky new stamps. The list of everyone on the hop is at the bottom of this post, along with a pointer to who to hop to next after me :)



I've only just started to understand fully what you can do with digital stamps. If you're looking for really helpful videos, have a look at Vera Lane Studio on YouTube as these were massively helpful to me!

I took the PNG file of the bunny and separated him out into his own file, along with the carrot and the sentiment. I resized him and the carrot so they would fit on an A2 card base. I took the carrot and shrank it down and copied and pasted it 22 times, repositioning them around the bunny like a heart. I then grouped them together and changed the colour to orange.



I printed the image out onto some Neenah and die cut it with a SSS stitched rectangle die before doing some Copic colouring - 22 tiny carrots is good going!

I then took an A2 card base and adhered some Lawn Fawn Let's Polka in the Dark paper to the front before adding the card panel popped up on fun foam for dimension.




Below is a list of what I used to make this card and where I purchased them. Please note I DO NOT USE affiliate links :)
I hope you like my card and it inspires you to download Jeanin's stamps and try something different!

Here's everyone on the hop:

Ruth - You Are Here!

Vanessa - Hop Here Next!

Birka said...

A2?? Wow... In germany A2 ist huge!! The cards here are A6... a4 is normal copy paper so i first though your card is 4 times a cooy-paper big 😂😂😂😂 But your card is really sweet!!!! The carrot-heart is an awesome idea 😍😍😍😍

The carrot heart is amazing! I've not had a chance to play around with digi stamps much but it looks like a lot of fun!

I really don't use digi stamps as much as I should - Jeanin has produced some great little critters for us to colour. I think your card is lovely Ruth, the carrot heart is just adorable to frame the bunny (who is coloured beautifully). And I love the pop of orange patterned paper - sets the white panel perfectly. Gorgeous!

Fabulous card - love all those carrots - but the bunny is a bit creepy - I think its the missing pupils, or maybe its just me...

Wiebke said...
