Create your own Digi Stamp in MTC

Last Updated: Dec 30, 2012 08:19PM EST

 

Probably one of the easiest things to do in MTC with our ScrappyDew.com files or files from other sites that give you piecings to place together is creating a digi stamp. Digistamps are basically a cartoon/ stamp like shapes where you can print on your computer and color it by hand rather than cutting out several pieces and putting it together.

For those that don't know what a digi stamp is please scroll all the way to the bottom to see the final result.
