Computer Generated Sentiments For Cardmaking !

Hello September!
Hello crafty people!

I am so glad and happy we left behind a really hot, uninspiring and tiring summer here in Cyprus!

Today I am sharing my digital stamps and the way you can use your computer in cardmaking and scrapbooking!

Sometimes -eventhouh I love stamps- I cannot find the perfect sentiment for my cards. Sometimes size doesn't fit, or for me being greek, I want greek sentiments on my cards. What I do??

I design and print the greetings on lightweight card stock and cut them with my trimmer! And is cool !
The most simple software to do that is Microsoft Word, so give it a try!

And this technique comes in hand when you need to make few really fast cards...

I have designed for all of you a set ( a pdf ) that includes useful sentiments for card and also I created 5 cards using them !

Here I used a standard size card with the fold on top, I glued down some kraft card stock, added some buttons with glue dots, and finally I added the greeting with two layers of dimensional adhesive!

This card feature another greeting from the set on a skinny card (this is a standard size card that I trimmed off 2 cm from the side)....
The paper collection here is from Papermania Capsule Collection by Jessie Edwards.

And another one for Christening - Christening sentiments are so hard to find in stamp sets .... :(

This butterfly is a die-cut from Anita's A4 Pearlescent Flutterdies Toppers. The white piece on the back is made of with Distress inks (Walnut Stain, Brushed Corduroy, Vintage Photo) that I mixed with water and by using a brush, I splattered drops of the inks....
I also made 5 horizontal lines using my scoring board...

Some cool masking and misting with Distress Inks ( Distress Ink + Water in a mini mister ). Here I've used Pine Needles and Dusty Concord. I added foam adhesive on the sentiment to make it pop and also I added some gems....

Hope that inspires you to use the digital stamp I designed and your computer+printer to create your own sentiments....

Btw, I designed the circles to be cut with a 2 inches circle punch that allows to create a white frame around the greeting, but you can also use your scissors to cut this out!

Please let me know your thought and your comments!!!!
