Bonne Annee - Digital Stamps from Steph

Hi Everyone! I'm back to share the last of the hops to celebrate Steph's Digital Stamps. We're moving from Christmas to New Year with Bonne Annee!

I started by adding my sentiment to a Word document, and next to it I added another digi stamp that I got free with an issue of Simply Cards and Papercraft (it's by 2CuteInk). I changed the layout of my document to landscape and selected it to print at 4x6 inches, which was approximately the size of my piece of Neenah.

I positioned and resized the images on the Word document and then printed it out. First time I've done it onto a smaller card and it worked! I then die cut it out with my Sunshine borders die from WPlus9.

I coloured my penguin in with Copic markers and added some shading to the sentiment. I took one of the pages of my Sugar Pea It's a Celebration paper pad and added it onto the back of an A2 card base (US size).

I added the card panel on top with foam tape and then I decided that since the enamel dots that I have matched the colours of the background paper really well, I'd go to town and add some. I have to say on the first try, they are lovely and it's likely I will get them all :)

I love how this turned out. Digital stamps are great for mass producing, so with a few French speaking friends, I shall be using this again.

I love this, Ruth! That penguin is so cute and of course, great sentiment too. The enamel accents look amazing! They really finish the card off perfectly xx

This is a perfect Happy New Year card and the stamp really suits Steph's sentiment font. I was interested to hear how you set about sizing and placing the image. I am not confident with this side of using a digi image. At the moment, I have just printed a sentiment to die cut it out, not printed directly onto the size card I want. I shall try this! Really love the enamel accents, - they look just like the ready made ones! Great card! Xx
