Creating Coordinating Digital Dies for Stamps Using the Silhouette PixScan - Video Tutorial

Hi everyone!

Today I want to share with you how to make your own coordinating Digital Dies for stamps you have but do not own the coordination dies for. The process is not that complicated if you are already familiar using the Silhouette PixScan. For those of you that aren't, I have put together a step by step video of how to do it. 

Here is a sympathy card I made using the Digital Dies I created. The stamps come from Fleurette Bloom's Pawsatively Fabulous Stamp Set. Super cute stamps, perfect for the dog lover in your life!

The best thing about these digital die files is that you can cut out a whole bunch on plain white card stock (whatever you use for stamping) and save them for a different time. Just put the cut blank dies in a baggy and when want to create with the coordinating stamps you are ready to go! If you run out of them just cut some more out from your saved file. 

NO more fussy cutting!

I used my Spectrum Noir markers to color this pup and added Wink of Stella for some shine!
To the eyes, nose and the dog bone, I added some glossy accents.
I used Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and Walnut Stain distress ink. 
Stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx and embossed the sentiment with WOW clear powder.

The inside stamps come from here.

So for those wanting to know the how to's, I invite you all to watch my video :)

Hope the video was informative and helped you save some money on coordinating dies ;)

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Crafting  :)

Sympathy Card | SVGCuts

Death and dying are part of my work life.  It's hard to run from it as an Oncology nurse. I hope, in the very least, to provide comfort to those I do care for as they pass and console those that are left behind. 

A very good friend of mine recently lost a loved one, so I thought I would make her a card just to let her know I was thinking of her.

For this project, I used a few SVG Cuts files that I have altered to come up with this card. Click on the links below to see which kits the files came from.

Nobody likes to lose someone they've loved. A handmade card like this, may put a smile on their face or at least let them know how much you care for them.

Thanks so much for stopping by,
