Hybrid Cardmaking with GraphicStock

 

Many of you, I know, are into hybrid card making. And when GraphicStock approached me, I thought of you guys – and even though this is very different for me, it’s something I wanted to share with you! See the end of this post for a FREE offer as well as a chance to win a GIVEAWAY!

Hybrid Cardmaking

This type of crafting is using digital elements together with your stamps, markers, and other crafty goodies. Many scrapbookers do this all the time, and lots of cardmakers do too – I saw lots when OWH was underway! With 250,000 images to choose from, picking just a few to play with was daunting, but I went thematically with seasons for a start. In the video I show you how the site works as well as how you can arrange images onto a page in a Word doc, since some folks might not know the basics. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube!

Each card has some special “traditional” cardmaking touches added, and the supplies used are listed below in each caption.

  9. You can also save the images to Photos (on a Mac) and use them in card templates in Word or Pages as well. I think they make be easier to size and adjust.
