Thanks for the lovely tutorial using PS brushes. "To the Moon" however cute, is a provocative phrase that suggests violence against women. It became popular during "The Honeymooners" TV show, when Ralph Cramden made a fist to threaten his wife Alice. We women need to maintain solidarity to erase violence against women, not only in the US, but world wide. Read Dominick WuDunne's book, "Half the Sky" if you are unfamiliar with the importance of this issue.

Shanna. Thanks for the awesome tutorial. I have photoshop element and I followed your instructions but when it came to right clicking on my color layer there was no clipping mask. Help. I love this idea. Thanks again.



Loved this! Thanks so much. You are a great teacher

@Pam Alymer - The phrase "I love you to the moon & back" actually comes from a rather sweet children's book called Guess How Much I Love You. The little bunny tells his dad that he loves him to the moon, and then dad tucks him into bed and whispers - "I love you to the moon... and back."



@FRAN, I have heard that from someome else on elements. In this case just go to the layers pull down menu at the top and go down to "create clipping mask" sorry about the confusion! <3

Thank you! Real easy tutorial to follow. Am excited to add new colours to my digital stamps now :)

Fran Chopp

Shanna. Thanks again. I am thinking I most have done something else wrong. I merged my layers and then did a new layer with the color but even when I go to layers and create the clipping mask it doesn't show the beautiful colors it only shows them on the beautiful colors layer. I really appreciate your help and have been trying all kinds of things but can't get the color layer to work with my layered design. I am at choppsrus@gmail.com if you have any other ideas for me. Thank you again for the tutorial. I am not giving up. Fran

Shanna break break...it was operator error. I am not sure what the error was but I think it was in merging the layers prior to adding the color layer. I plan to quickly do another card before I forget. Thanks again. Fran

Thank you for the awesome tutorial.


Shanna thank you so much!!!! I need to try this and I think I can! I thank you to the moon and back!!! Please think about doing more tutorials because I adore you and your style! It's so nice to hear your voice too!!


Thank you SO much for creating this video, I have been struggling to figure out how to use "stamps" on adobe, finally I now can do it! Yay! Can you also do this on Elements? Thanks again, great tutorial, I hope you'll do more :)


Shanna?!! I seriously loved this tutorial! So simple and easy to understand! Thank you for sharing and please bring us more! :) :) :)


Awesome Shanna!

THIS IS A GREAT TUTORIAL!!!! I love it!! Thanks for sharing.

Quick question - what kind of paper do you print on when it's time?

Sue Alg

Thanks for the instructions. I brushes and clipping masks all the time, but did think I could combine them together.
