Digital Paper Piecing with Crate Paper’s Fourteen Collection & a Unity Stamp


Did you know that you could paper piece a rubber stamp digitally?  Well you can.  The proof is in the above picture. 

In the above card, I used my Silhouette Portrait’s Print-and-Cut feature to make these digital (and rubber) elements come to life. I scanned in one of my favorite Unity Stamps (Rain or Shine), filled it with prints from Crate Paper’s Fourteen Collection in Photoshop Elements, and saved it as a png file. Then I retrieved it in the Silhouette software, resized it to approximately 4-inches (the original is only 2-1/2-inches), and used the Print-and-Cut feature. Voila! Digital paper piecing with rubber stamps! Don’t be afraid to do this. It will bring more versatility to your rubber stamp collection. Many times I’ve colored in and/or paper-pieced rubber stamps, wishing that the images were just a little bit bigger or that the process was a bit easier, don’t you agree? We can all appreciate this look, right? With a scanner, printer, and a digital die cutter as powerful as a Silhouette, this is SO possible!

Who wouldn’t be inspired to do this when full collections from Crate Paper are available, just a mouse click away?
