Pink Cat Studio is going digital!

Hi there!

Well I told you Pink Cat Studio had some big news today didn't I? Well... here it is:

I’m excited to announce that Pink Cat Studio is going digital! Today Melissa is opening an online digital stamp store with a great selection of brand new Halloween and Christmas designs. So now PCS will have two stores, one for rubber stamps and one for digital stamps. You can check out the new store at: http://www.pinkcatstudio.com/Digital/PCSDigi.htm

Melissa has asked the rubber Design Team and a couple of VERY talented other people to make some projects using the new digistamps. Here are the two cards I created with three of the new digi-images:

Isnt' she cute? she is of course Itty Bitty Betty that you got to know in the last Halloween release. Melissa created this gorgeous enchanted Betty that was so much fun to colour. Here is a close up:
You know by now how I colour... Derwent Watercolour pencils, Copics and the 3D was done using my scissors and foam cubes. All the materials on this card, except for gorgeous digi-Betty of course are from the last Card-Art kit, it was just brilliant again, Carmen just makes the best kits, everything is in there, the cardstock, the design papers, the embellies and even the sentiment stamps.
My first Christmas card in ages! Isn't little Betty cute on her candy cane swing? I used a lot of glitter on her, check out the close up:
Isn't she gorgeous? She looks a little dark but if you click the image you get a better look, it's just the light that's all bad these days for taking pictures. I guess I'll need to get myself one of those daylight lamps. I did the inside too:
Little Bobby is also a digi-image for sale at Melissa's new store. I mirrored him (can't do that with rubber) and added a sentiment. I did check with Melissa first if it made sense but it sounded right with the cute images of Betty and Bobby on the swing. I just changed the color of the image and that's it. Very simple but I thought it was cute for the inside. Again, the images I used are Pink Cat Studio's, all the rest is from a Card-Art kit, this time the one before the last. Believe me... you need to get yourself a subscription to these kits!

I do hope you like my two examples but either way, there is much more to see with Melissa's new digi-images because there are way more then I used. Check out these blogs to see some fabulous cards and projects using the new digi stamps:

  22. I have a question for you. First i would like to say, i run to your blog every week to see your work, its always amazing! now my question is...using digital images, how do you print them and use copic markers without having the markers smear the ink? is there a special ink to use?

  23. oh my goodness! How CUTE is the candy cane swing?! Love your cards!

    I don't know how else to contact you so I'll just do it this way:

    I'm affraid I'm not an expert on digital images either. The ones I have done I have just printed with my Canon Inkjetprinter on correspondence cards. I did print them a day before I started using them so the ink could dry though. I hear a lot of girls heatset the ink but I have never tried that. I do find that I do have to be careful with my Copics, when I touch the printed lines for to long the ink will run a little. What I do is I just try to stay away from the lines as best I can. But I am still more a rubber image than a digi-image lover.

    I hope I have been some help but like I said... I'm absolutely no expert on digi images.

    Take care!!

  25. Mariska thank you so much for responding on the copic pens and digi images! I love the rubber stamps too much to give them up as well, however the price with Digi stamps might just end up too enticing. If i ever try the digi stamps i will let you know if the heat gun idea works! thanks again for great inspiration from all your projects!
