New SCACD Digital Stamps!

Several of SCACD's designers and some guest are showcasing SCACD's Digital stamps! Check out  SCACD's Hearts and Hugs Blog for links to the participants' blogs!

SCACD's Digital stamps were created by Carmen Medlin and include a wide range of images. There are also some brand new winter digis that are fantastic!

I'm so excited that I got to use one of SCACD's brand new Digital stamps!

Meet Winter Friends!

Isn't she gorgeous? Don't you wish you had a cute little owl to perch on your hand? I know I do!

One of the things that I really like about digital images is that you can reduce or enlarge them, flip them, flop them, or rotate them. You can easily combine several digital stamps to create your own scene! 

I reduced Winter Friends slightly and used my laser printer to print onto Neenah cardstock. The fairy, owl, and icicle laden branch were colored using Copic markers. Pebbles palette chalk was used to add some blush to her cheeks. I used a Clear Stardust Glitter pen to add sparkle to the icicles and the branch, then coated them with a layer of Clear Glaze Gelly pen to give them a raised shiny look. The Clear Glaze Gelly pen pen was also added to the owls' eyes, beak, and talons.

The patterned papers are from Authentique's Autumn Bundle 6x6 pad. The sentiment was computer generated. Very old holographic shimmery stickers were used to add a bit more shimmer to the card.

And heeeeeeeeeeeere's Johnnie!!! Um Nope.

Here's Gothie Owl!

Gothie Owl was reduced and laser printed onto Neenah cardstock. He was colored with Copic markers and then coated with a layer of Matte Glue and Seal, which dries very quickly. When the glue is dry, it acts as a resist and protects what's underneath it, so you can attack it with ink. In this case, I sponged Wendy Vecchi's new Watering Can Archival ink, then added some Jet Black Archival ink around the edges. When the ink was dry, I added Glossy Accents to Gothie's eyes, but I was very gentle, so it didn't hurt him. I don't know if you can see it, but I added some red Glaze pen to the spider on Gothie's hat to make it look like a black widow. Clear Glaze Gelly pen pen was added to his beak and his talons. The stamped, colored, inked image panel was die-cut using a Nestabilities Labels #? die.

The patterned papers are from the Masquerade 6x6 pad by Teresa Collins. I thought the papers worked fabulously with Gothie.  He agreed. I layered the papers, added sheer ribbon from Mike's, and the popped the stamped, colored, inked, die-cut image panel onto dimensional foam adhesive over the patterned paper and ribbon.

I die-cut shimmery black vellum using the Creepy Spider die by Memory Box. The spider was adhered to the web on Gothie's tummy and dangles below the die cut. The spider's body is popped up on dimensionals and the front part of her legs are adhered to the patterned paper. Two Red Geo Sparkler stickers were added the spider's body.

Plastic web confetti was added to the corners of the patterned paper and Gold Kaisercraft Rhinestones were added to the webs to finish the card!
