I wanted to take time today and share a little
World of Digi Stamps with you.
I have been in the process of turning my OLD
(Okay, really old!)
Stampin' Up sets to digital files.
Today I am going to show you what I have done with
Remember that beautiful set?
I fell in love with this set after it was retired and had to make my
purchase on Ebay.
I may have used it one time for Christmas Cards other than
that it has been tucked away.
Those were some expensive Christmas Cards, just sayin;)
Now that I have it digitized I find myself using it all the time.
Here is my digi card creation:
Oh yeah, I almost forgot that Baroque Motifs has also been digitized and used
in this creation.
Here are the set images,
they are stamped in Palette Black Noir ink:
Below you can see a comparison.
I love that you can re-size the image.
With rubber it is what it is.
This manipulation would be a PRO for Digi images, SIZE.
Also how beautiful the digi colored images are.
I never had cards looking this good with this set in
rubber form, I shutter to think of those designs today.
This manipulation would be PRO number 2, Infinite Creative Options
And the same with the scarecrow...
Here are the steps I take to digitize my rubber images:
Stamp your rubber images with palette Noir black
onto white card stock.
Scan your card stock, and save to your computer
as either a JPG or PNG file.
Open your graphic manipulation software.
(I use Photoshop)
I use the Quick Selection tool around one image and than after it is selected I move the single image into a new 4" by 4" file.
Save the new file.
Open a duplicate file to work on.
(this is important otherwise you will be making changes to your original file)
Manipulate your digital image as you would like.
Save your duplicated file to a Scanned Stamp Folder.

I color my digital images.
