Here is a tutorial for creating a simple sticker with a folded edge. I originally posted it a few years back on my personal blog.
This is what we are aiming for:
Phase One: 1. Draw a circle with the circle tool.
2. Using the path tool, draw a shape that intersects the circle for your ”dogear”
3. Select the path and the circle and use Path>Cut Path.
And set the colours of both the paths that result from this.
Phase Two: 1. Select the ”Dogear” (mine is black) and press flip vertical.
2. Then press flip horizontal.
1. Select the main body of the sticker (mine is blue)
RightClick > Duplicate, then change the colour. (mine is pink)
2. Do it again and change the colour to something different again. (mine is green)
3. Select the green one, and use the arrow keys to offset it a bit.
4. Then select both the green and pink objects and choose Path>Difference
5. Change the colour of the remaining path to black.
6. Open the stroke/fill dialog and play with transparency & blur
1. Duplicate the black “Dogear” object, and change the colour.
2. Select the black one (underneath) and play with the blur and transparency.
3. Duplicate the body of the sticker again.
4. Press CTRL+A to select all, then choose Object>Clip>Set
5. Add your text, and you are done!
One of the most frequently asked questions from Inkscape users is “how do i crop an image or object?” The Clipping feature is by far the easiest and most versatile way to crop vector or bitmap/raster objects in Inkscape. This FAQ provides you with a step by step tutorial covering the basics of clipping.
Here is another awesome tutorial from the vectortuts+ website, describing how to draw a grungy, beat up cardboard box icon. This tutorial was written for inkscape 0.47, and uses many of the newer inkscape features, including the envelope deformation path effect. Additionally, this tutorial also covers how to achieve the dirty, grungy look in inkscape by using a combination of vector shapes and a bitmap texture. All in all, this is a comprehensive tutorial that almost any one familiar with inkscape basics could follow to produce an awesome graphic.
here nice tutorial for making your photos on the screen look a bit more like they were printed out.
It demonstrates how to add a simple frame, shading and a curvy shadow.
This is an SVG tutorial with a linked bitmap, so you need to download the zip file, and extract it for it to work correctly…
PLEASE NOTE: This tutorial was done before the release of inkscape version 0.45 and the blur filter is now implemented in the software. this means that for the shadow step, you just need to draw the rectangle and blur it, no need to bother with the interpolation any more
