A lesson in digital stamps

This week’s card features a Digital Stamp – Spring Cookies: Cookie Set 3 stamp from Sweet November Stamps. I have not used many digital stamps in my crafting history and thought it was time to give it a go.

Things I learned using these adorable cookie digital stamps. Please keep in mind these things apply to my level of coloring (beginner). Others have so much more experience with digital stamps and color pencils. But wanted to share my take aways.

1. Keep the images larger for easier coloring with color pencils. 

2. It is ok to make a 5″ x 7″ or even a large slimline card not every card needs to be 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″. 

3. If I am going to color smaller imagws make sure they have simple details.

4. It is going to take a long time to color so keep the design simple.

5. Keep your color pencils sharp!

6. DO NOT attempt to trace the images with a micro pen if they are detailed. I tried and was on the verge of messing up my card.

I learned a lot using these cute cookie digital stamps and the next card I do; I guarantee the images will be bigger. 

Details of the card:

I created cookie sheet using squares in Canva then added the cookie digital stamps. With a few more squares I created the Happy St. Patrick’s Day cookie to tie in a sentiment.  Then I colored everything with Prismacolor pencils and added highlights with a Posca pen. 

I used a kraft colored card bases and colored it in equal sections using green, orange, and white. I went over the sections a couple times in different directions to get as much coverage as possible.

I hope this card inspires you to try out digital stamps if you don’t already use them!
