Hello! I recently invested in a new Canon TS3522 back loading printer in order to print digital images for cards. I say invested, but it was really an inexpensive printer (bought at Wal*Mart
) that is performing surprisingly well. Too thumbs up for it and I highly recommend it.
I posted this on Facebook in the Clean and Simple card making group
and got a lot of questions and figured I post this here and answer them.
The image is from PNGwing
- it was FREE. If you don't know how to use png's here is a good video
from Christine Stokes.
The sentiment is a stamp from Jaded Blossoms and you can find it here
. The die that I used to cut out the digital picture with is from Jillian Vance Designs and can be found here
The cardstock that I used is Royaltone Regal White from the Cardstock Warehouse
. It's a 100 lb cover and went through the Canon printer well.
I hope this helps those who might not know how to use digital or photos for cards. It's pretty easy and can have really wonderful results. It will never replace red rubber or clear stamps, but it's another option when you need something specific that you don't have in your inventory of stamps.
Thanks for stopping by!
