Splitcoast Tutorial: Layering Digital Stamps

Today's tutorial over on Splitcoast is a fun one - it's called Layering Digital Stamps. Lindsay shares lots of tips for transforming single images into full backgrounds or scenes.

I used digital stamps from Tiddly Inks for my card - there are 2 sets here - one has the girl and stack of 2 suitcases (Aida - Gonna Miss You), and the other set of suitcases is a single stamp that's on the Freebie list! (Suitcase stamps are one of my weaknesses, with all the moving we've done...)

I started with the large stack of suitcases, then copied and flipped another stack, reduced the size, and tucked it behind the first set for more depth. I added the stack of 2 suitcases to the foreground, and positioned Aida on the lower one.

After printing, I colored the scene in with Copic markers and added a few pencil highlights.

That's it! If you'd like to try this out, the instructions are great, and easily adapted to your photo editing program.

  1. GAH Dina - SO INSANELY adorable!!! I am still befuddled about doing THIS much with digital stamps; but I'll check out the tutorial. I do have another question you might be able to answer...if you have a digital image that let's say is a black brush stroke; how do you change the 'color' of the image? Thanks; uber cute card; love it!!

  2. Thank you so much for this tutorial. I am really not "in the know" when it comes to using digital stamps. I tend to just print and work with one image, so layering instruction is so nice! I can use any kind of digital instruction!
