Paper Piecing Digital Stamps Tutorial.

Hi guys!
I did this Tutorial for MyGrafico on Tuesday & I wanted to share!
If you're like me.. you want to learn the latest Techniques,
& Learn how to use those New Gadgets that are out there.
So I hope this will help you all and ourselves learn  Lots of new things!

Today's tutorial  is a quick and simple photo tutorial on how to paper piece your
 Digital stamped images for a twist to your digi images!

Paper piecing with Digital Stamps
(similar to the masking technique in traditional stamping)

Here is what I used for this Tutorial

The Dilek designs Chic girl stamp set 1

 The First thing to do is to choose the stamp your using on your computer

you will need to tape your paper to the cardstock
(You can either "eyeball" where you  need to add it or print a test sheet then tap over that)

Once you have taped the paper down to your cardstock then print
2 times for every one final image you want.

Next you will need to cut your images apart
( I do this before I remove the pattern paper since sometime the tape rips the cardstock)

Next separate the pattern paper from the cardstock &
then cut your image pieces  out.

next you should color your image in then
 glue your pattern paper to the image you printed to the card stock
for your final result.

I made some really cute bookmarks. I used my markers to color in the belts and straps after 
I glued them on. 

Thanks for stopping by today!
