Steamy Romance Digital Stamp
Where to Buy:
Well, now that I have tried using digital stamps, I’m really loving it. They’re not only simple to use and much easier to store than rubber stamps, they’re also quite economical! This lovely image is just $3.00!
About my project: This is a very simple card, using some left over scrapbook paper (over the years, I’ve amassed a LOT of paper). The kraft cardstock is made from recycled paper and I acquired it from my favorite art supply store, Collage!
I printed the image on pink vellum and then colored in the image using colored pencils. It’s hard to see in the image, but I also added a few tiny heart-shaped rhinestones to embellish the card a little bit.
It’s a pretty simple design but I’m happy with it. I hope that my SweeTea likes it too!
This was an incredibly fun digital stamp from Freshly Brewed Designs! Perfect for Valentine’s Day, or for any occasion when you want to celebrate your love of tea (or… coffee, I guess). Even if you’re an “old-school” artist/crafter like me, I think you’ll find that you can easily incorporate digital stamps into your repertoire. They’re so versatile and simple to use, once you’ve tried them, you’ll probably wonder “what took me so long?” I know I did!
About the picture to the left: This is a Valentine Card that I made for a Valentine Card Swap in which I’m participating. It includes a top pocket so I can include a package of tea for the recipient. I used the Tea-riffic Digital Stamps from Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff to create this card. (Please see inside of the card below)
Where to Buy: Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff on Shop Handmade
you get 9 teariffic digital stamps in this set perfect for tea parties or just beacuse, you have animated sugar cubes, 2 tea cups, 2 pretty flourishes and more whimsical deisgns! As a bonus you get a printable tea bag envelope template and SVG file to cut with your Cricut!
OK, I have to be honest, when it comes to art, I’m totally “old-school.” Before today, I have never used digital stamps, so this is all very new to me. I don’t know if I’m even using them right! haha!
That being said, it was a lot of fun – and SO EASY – to use these digital stamps from Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff! And now that I have gotten a taste for using digital stamps, I do think I am going to utilize them more in my art work. It is a lot easier to keep them (no bulky wood blocks cluttering up the art studio!) and as long as I have ink in the printer, I’m good to go!
I printed these on pink vellum because I thought it would work best with my color scheme, and I adhered the vellum to the scrapbook paper using vellum tape. I have learned from experience that you should definitely use vellum tape when you’re adhering vellum, unless you like that “tape can be seen through the vellum” look.
The scrapbook paper I used was from g-c-d studios (item #205 – Rose Circles) and I selected this particular pattern because it was a simple, small pattern that would work well with the teacup. I felt that a more complicated design (or larger design) would have not been as adaptable to the teacup shaped card.
I am very happy with the way these turned out, and these “Tea-riffic” digital stamps are something that I can use again and again – not just for this particular occasion. There are several very cute designs with this set too, not just the teabag tag and sentiment that I used. There is even a Teabag holder with this set that I intend on using at some point in the future to send out teabags to friends.
I hope you’ll have as much fun with these as I did!

As far as Digital Stamps are concerned and how The SororiTEA Sisters are incorporating these and other Tea Related Crafts here on our website check out this post from last week.
I really like Priscilla Styles Digi Stamps because they have a nice selection of Tea and Coffee Related items. HERE are two of them! The one is what I used in my project above! I decided to use that Digital Stamp for an Afternoon Tea Party Table Tent or Place Setting of sorts. I also used one of her Sentiments. I love using Digital Word Art or Sentiments because they look so much better than my handwriting (chicken-scratch!). teahee.
I printed out her Digital Stamp on paper I was reusing – you can really use any paper – some crafters use watercolor paper or heavier card stock. I use different things for different projects or sometimes just use what ever I have on hand. I then colored in the image using Prisma Color Colored Pencils and Water Color Pencils. In addition to Prisma Color I also have Reeves Water Color Pencils that I use from time to time. I am getting more and more comfortable with both of these brands.
I usually use double sided tape or adhesive square to adhere my images to other paper surfaces…in this case more paper! I used Cloud 9 Designs Paper for most of this project.
I manually folded the bottom in towards each other and taped those together to get this to stand up on its own.
I really like the vintage look of this Digital Stamp from Priscilla Styles. I don’t really have too many Vintage Digi Stamps but I enjoyed working with it so I am sure I will be adding more to my collection soon. It reminds me of my Grandmother’s Teacups and Saucers!! Down the road I may share with you all the Teacup and Saucer that I have had since I was 5 when my Grandmother passed away. It’s been in a safe place since then. I treasure each item I have left to me by my Grandmother as she was VERY important to me! Perhaps that is why I am enjoying Priscilla Styles Tea Related Digital Stamps so much!
If you are into Digi Stamps, Crafts, or TEA…you’ll HAVE to check out Priscilla’s Shop! It’s a delight!
