Goodbye Sassy Cheryl’s – Snowman Wiper Card (and some other sites to find digital  stamps)

Happy New Year!

Digital stamps are images you download and print from your computer to use on your cards/projects.  You can color them (just like with traditional line art image stamps), but since they are digital, you can also size them to suit your needs.

The snowman on the wiper card above is a digital image from an online shop called Sassy Cheryl’s (that, sadly, just closed down).  What I loved about the images on that site (besides that I thought they were adorable) is that most were also available as pre-colored illustrations so if you didn’t want to color the images yourself, you could just print them in color and use them as is.  The image used on the card above is the pre-colored version of “Fa-la-la-la Snowman” and was “traced and cut” with my Silhouette electronic die cutting machine.  And while this site is no longer operational, there are lots of other companies/shops that offer digital stamps (some pre-colored).

Etsy is a great place to begin looking.

Here are some other sites to check out:

Whimsy Stamps (This site actually has some of Sassy Chery’s designs)

Jan’s Digi Stamps

Graciellie Design

Bugaboo Stamps

Di’s Digital Stamps

Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps

Imagine That Digistamp

Beccy’s Place

and

The Artsystamper Shop

… to name a few!  (Google Digital Stamps for more options.)

The digital paper I used is called “Snowflake Background – Snowy Paper” by SBdigitalDesigns from Etsy.  The “Festive Mini Expressions – Warmest Wishes” die from Creative Expressions was used for the pop-up greeting.

The following sample (previously posted here) shows how the wiper element works on my snowman card above and features another of Sassy Cheryl’s designs called Once Upon a Star Santa.

I colored this image myself and used a reindeer image from the “Reindeer” stamp and die cut set (#657780) from Hero Arts/Sizzix (retired) in place of the star in the original design.

Thanks for checking out my card project and post!

This is a Clean and REALLY Simple card.  Maybe too simple???

I saw this “Happy Hanukkah” stamp set from Lawn Fawn and really liked the whimsical menorah image.  Are we allowed to just stamp an image and a greeting and then mat it and call it done?  LOL!!  I needed to make a bunch of these to hold gift cards/monetary gifts, and my MISTI made it a breeze.

The mat and ink are both Gina K Designs Blue Denim, but as often happens, my blue paper and ink look different in photos but the same in real life.  Hmmm…

Thanks for checking out my card project!

This card features stamps from the “Winter Flowers” stamp set by Simon Says Stamp.

I heat embossed the images in Hero Arts Copper embossing powder on black card stock and colored them with Prismacolor Pencils and a Dove Blending Pen.  I am honestly not sure how I feel about this as it is awfully dark.  I was trying to use traditional red and green, but I think it might have needed lighter colored pencils?  I did think it was cool that the colored pencils actually showed up on the black; I was expecting to need to put white pencil or ink down first (and I did not need to).  Anyway, I also purchased the “Spring Flowers” set which is similar in style, and I think I will try this technique again with lighter colors.

The mat is “Copper” card stock from Cardstock Warehouse’s Starstream Collection with an ivory card base.  The Merry Christmas stamp is from the “Sentimental Holidays” set (retired?) from Gina K Designs.

While I still had the embossing supplies out and the stamps on my MISTI, I decided to make a few simple thank you notes.

The thank you stamp was from the “Wonderful Words I” set (retired?) from Stampin’ Up.  There were long lines/tails at the beginning and end of the words that I masked off for this card.

The card based is “Ocean Tides” from Papertrey Ink.  It’s hard to see in the photo, but I added texture to the stamped panel with Gina K Designs Whisper Amalgam Ink and the GKD Gauze background stamp.

This card features the beautiful “Nativity Forest” die from Tutti Designs (Tutti-570).  The die cut was cut from “Copper” card stock from Cardstock Warehouse’s Starstream Collection and backed with a piece “Chiffon Vintage” printed card stock by Bo Bunny (#12CV838).  That was then matted on Gina K Designs Ivory and a Cranberry Tart base.

Here is the inside:

These stamps are from the “City of David” and “Christmas Joy” stamp sets (both retired?) from Gina K Designs.  I heat embossed them with versamark ink and Hero Arts Copper embossing powder.

You can see the shine of the copper card stock better in this photo:

The die cut is about 3 7/8″ square so I was able to double mat it for a 4 1/4″ square card when folded flat which allowed me to use an A2 size envelope (with a little extra room on each side).
