Digi Stamps as Home Decor

Digi Stamps make stunning cards and embellishments for layouts, but our designers have come up with a couple great ways to show them off in home decor.  Prepare to be wowed!

Erin sized these digital stamps from The Stamping Boutique at 11.5 inches tall and then paper pieced them using papers and letter stickers from various  Basic Grey collections.  Ranger Distress ink and Stickles add the finishing touches. She plans to hang these in her newly finished laundry room/guest bathroom

This is a recycled chocolate box.  Using the From My Kitchen Cricut cartridge,  She cut the oven mitt then printed The Stamping Boutique Digi Stamp, Kitchen Pantry Shelf, over it and colored it using Stampin' Up Markers.  She printed, colored and cut a second image to apply the little teapots around the outside of the box which she lined with paper doilies.  She printed the recipe for the Chocolate Biscuit Cookies on the opposite side of the oven mitt which can
be seen through the clear box lid on the inside.

Our winner from last week is:  AJ said...
I've recently started to use digi-stamps. While I haven't mastered coloring them (seriously, I haven't gotten over my childhood issue with coloring in the lines!) I do enjoy them!

AJ send us an email at practicalscrappers@gmail.com and we will get you set up with your free digis!

We have heard your requests for some digi tutorials and we are working on getting some made for you!  Look for some to start premiering next month!  

We have one more giveaway this week from The Stamping Boutique, another generous five digis!  To enter leave a comment telling us if you've ever used a digi for home decor and if not, tell us something you'd like to try with them!  The deadline for entry is Saturday Oct. 3Oth!

This is the second time in 12 hours that I've read about paper piecing stamps. I'm floored (in a happy) way to learn that this is done -- I'm not great with coloring/markers so this makes them much more fun!

LOOOOVE the doll stamps -- DS has loved matrushka (sp?) dolls for a couple years now and breaks into the Christmas Decor frequently during the year to find them.

I hadn't really thought of using digi stamps as home decor before, but now that you mention it, it sounds like a pretty great idea! Definitely something I'll be trying in the future! Thanks for the inspiration!
