You are not really giving us enough information, but I happen to know this font. You are not telling us what software you are using, so this will be very general.

To make it really easy:

  • get the font
  • write what you want
  • save as png

that should get you the image without artefacts. The font is called The king and queen, and you can find it on dafont here.

Type/draw them on a new layer and delete your first layer.

Layers look like this:

The quickest method is to use the white background to drive the transparency in a layer mask. This method requires no tracing and IMO is the easiest way to convert a white background to a transparent one.
