A note about Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff stamp sets: These stamps come in a zip file (A bundle of files all grouped together) after you download them right click on the file and select “Extract files” and choose where you want the stamps to go, or “Extract Here” and the stamps will show up wherever you downloaded the zip file. Your computer may even unzip them automatically, it’s easy!
Using digital stamps is so easy! You can simply print them using whatever software you have to print your photos with. You can even print them using Microsoft Word! Here’s how:
Open a new document in Word. Click insert, picture, from file. Find the folder where you have stored your digi-stamps (I have one called Digi-stamps on my hard drive) and select the stamp you want.
The image will appear in the document. Click on it and drag the corner handles to re-size it. Now print! I like smooth white cardstock for printing, The kind I use is by Georgia Pacific and it comes in a 250 sheet pack for $7 at Sam’s Club. That was easy!
9/9/2009- Every stamp I design from here on out will also be available as a png image. PNG file have a transparent background which is nice for layering images or for digital scrapbooking. You can still import the png files in Word if you like but you can not layer them in that program, they will look rough on screen but print fine but you can stick to jpgs for use in word as you will get both type of file with your order ;) For best use of PNG files I recommend using photo editing software such as Paint Shop Pro or Photoshop. If you want to keep your stamping easy-peasy just stick to the JPGs!
Now for the fun part, coloring the image! I like to use solvent based markers such as Bic Mark-its, Sharpies, Prismacolor or Copic markers. I also like colored pencils and chalk for the designs.
If you want to use water-base markers, watercolors or other wet media heat it with a heat gun or hot hair dryer to set the printer ink so it won’t smear.
Enjoy using your digi stamp images. If you have any questions or comments just leave them here, I’m happy to answer them!
