Birthday Present from Chloe

Happy Monday everyone!

Boy, do I have the cutest birthday girl to show you today! It is a digital stamp from ISS and not my DD even though we did have a birthday celebration this weekend. LOL

We celebrated with my daughter's friends from preschool in princess fashion with Castle cake, Royal Play Dough, make your own RKT castles, and a Royal Court Coin Hunt...sadly though the castle bouncer house lay in our backyard deflated and covered the whole entire day because it was constantly raining. Such a bummer for the party attendants, but my children were able to squeeze in some time jumping in it before the rain came ....Okay that's enough of my weekend story.

My card is using LAST Monday's InStyle Stamps Method Monday tutorial. I had it all ready to go and then my princess party became my focus for most of the week. Now, you need to go see Lana do these coordinated buttons like a real professional.

Ready for another technique? I used a new-to-me technique with digital papers on this card. I'm not sure where I got this idea, surely one of my late night blog surfing, but you can digital paper piece! Click on the whole card image and look at the dress, present and bow you'll see the papers in miniature size of the regular size papers I used on the card. 

Quick How To: For Paint Shop Pro, have both the digi-paper and image open in their own file window. Select All on the digi-paper and copy it. Go to the image and select the area you want to paste the digi-paper (some apps call it Wand Selection) and in the Edit menu use Paste into Selection. Do this for any of the areas you want to digi-paper piece then you're done! Now I think that is a paper (and ink) saver, don't you think?

Have a blessed week!
