June 2016 Digital Stamp Release Blog Hop

TGIF, everyone! Welcome to the Pretty Cute Stamps June 2016 Digital Stamp Release Blog Hop. YAY! My awesome Design Team and I will be sharing fun projects today that feature the newest Pretty Cute Digital Stamps! Be sure to check out each and every stop along the hop so you don't miss any of the fun!

But first,  I want to show you the new digital stamps you can purchase now in the Pretty Cute Stamps Store. All of these sets include JPG (with white backgrounds), PNG (with clear backgrounds), and ABR (Photoshop and Photoshop Elements Brush) files. The images also include SVG outlines, so you still don't have to worry about fussy cutting them if you have an electronic cutting machine that cuts SVGs. YAY! You can find all of these new items in the PCS store HERE.

Oh, and that last stamp...the Land of the Free Digital FREE today! Then, it will be available for purchase in the PCS store. You can download this digi HERE.

Also, the Sea Ya Soon and Sea Life Sentiments Clear Photopolymer Stamp Sets sold out last month, and, since I won't be getting them re-manufactured, I created digital versions, and these are now available in the PCS store

Okay, now for my project. I decided to use the freebie Land of the Free Digital Stamp to create an iron-on design for a t-shirt. I used the Photoshop brush (.abr) files in Photoshop Elements to recolor the stamps, flipped the design horizontally, and then printed it on a heat transfer sheet I bought near the t-shirts in Michaels. I love how it turned out! I'm hoping to get some Photoshop Brush tutorials done soon, but, in the meantime, there are tons of tutorials and videos about using brush files in Photoshop and Photoshop Elements out there, if you're curious. That's how I learned. :) Using the brush files is the easiest way I've found to recolor the digital sentiment stamps nicely, and they can be resized to a pretty large size without loss of quality.

Okay, now how about a PRIZE????
