Little Blue Button Stamps and a little Tutorial.

Today is my day to blog at Little Blue Button Stamps.  I've had such fun with the fabulous images from Olga and LBBS.  Did you know that  LBBS are available in rubber? (available from CC Designs HERE)

So first up is Sweetheart with Bag rubber stamp.

I stamped onto some white card and coloured with Copics and trimmed.  My PP background is from Hot of The Press.  I smeared it with Gesso to tone down the brightness and distressed the edges, with scissors.   I cut a Couture Creations rectangle doily and cut in half, added some blue ink and added to the PP.  The flower is from the PP pack by HOTP.  The green trim is from a swap I was recently part of.  
For my next card, I used a background from LBBS which I imported into Word.  Here is a little tutorial on how I did it. 

 and then recoloured
I then imported Jessica Wedding

 I then removed the background of Jessica 
and here's how it finally turned out
As you can see, I slightly adjusted the background colour and added a sentiment from Love Sentiments 2.  I coloured Jessica with Copic markers and added some silver stickles to her veil.  Once I trimmed and inked the edges I matted onto some silver mirror card.  A great way to combine three digital images to make a one layer card.

Thanks for visiting today.

Both cards are lovely Dawn - and you are so much more savvy on the computer than I am :-).

Nice work Mrs techno savvy lady! Great cards, especially card one - not only do I love the background but that stamp looks like my friend Alex! Hope they appear in the UK very soon, Jo x

Wow - I am so impressed! I am not so techno, but love what you did! That gesso is amazing - it adds so much! Sweet cards. Sorry we won - I would have loved for your team to have done it but it was a spectacular come back!

Hello Dawn
You are well advanced into making digital cards, and they look great, this tutorial I am sure will encourage many people to give it a try.

I copy stuff into Word all the time, but have no idea how to color, recolor, how to get another image to sit on top of another and then remove the background. I guess I'll have to play with it more.

I LOVE the little bride, she is so sweet. The background is great too.
