Last week, I launched a new video series under the banner of “Just Crafty Enough.” The goal” Show you how to use my digital products to make real-world, tangible, crafty things. And that was all well and good until I thought, “I should Google ‘just crafty enough’ to make sure I’m not using something that’s already out there.'” Turns out, it’s already out there in the knitting milieu. Ergo, I needed to find a new name. Enter: Heck Yeah, Hybrid!
I like it. Plus it’s a bit cleaner than… well, you know, [f-word]-Yeah Hybrid!
So for the first Heck Yeah, Hybrid tutorial I’m showing you how to take a digital stamp (PNG format) and make your own pocket page cards. This is SIMPLE stuff, people. All you need is some version of Photoshop and a digital stamp. Once you get the basics down, there’ll be no stopping you. You can create any card size your heart desires using any cool digital stamps out there, and believe me, there are a ton. I made the two cards you see on the left using digital stamps and some very basic Photoshop processes.
Want to see the video? Well okay then… here you go.
Note: there is one step I do in the video, simplifying a layer shape before I change the color, but… you don’t need to do that step. My brain was on full Photoshop and old habits. You can just make a shape and if you want to change the color, do the Edit > Fill Layer… process to change it!
