What are digital stamps
So what are Digi stamps? They are a downloadable versions of stamps, so basically line art that we can use for colouring or in any form of craft project.
One of the main objections I come across when is comes to digital stamps is the sentiment ” I prefer a physical product ” … I fully understand that there is nothing better for getting the creative juices going than a box, or room full of crafting goodies ( Depending on where we are in our crafting journey – lol ) ….. however as soon as we have printed out our image, it is a physical product, once we can get our head round that, it opens up a huge door of creativity.
What are the advantages of a digital stamp
There are many advantages to a digital stamp.
- 1 – In general they are a more economical than a physical stamp
- 2 – They take up a lot less storage space than our physical stamps
- 3 – They can be resized to suit our project
- 4- You can flip the image
How can I get the most out of my Digital Stamps
To get the most out of our Digital Stamps we need to do the same with them as we do with any other form of crafting, play, experiment and have fun.
Try printing on different surfaces. We can try basic card types, smooth card or water colour card .. but what about photo paper, gloss paper, sticker paper, printable acetate and so much more.
Just have fun and you will find you will discover lots of fun and creative techniques.
( we will have lots of tutorials on various ways to use digi stamps coming soon )
