Hello Again

This card features two first of firsts.  The first of first features Stampin’ UP’s Blendabilities, the alcohol ink markers made for blending and shading.  The second first of first is a die cut sentiment made from My Digital Studio’s  Moments Ago Stamp Brush Set and my e-cutter.  Both are easy to use and make a beautiful card.

When I see this card I want to burst out in song to Neil Diamond’s, “Hello Again”.

Feathers but no Birds

I have been inspired by some of the cards I have seen that use die cuts from Stampin’s UP’s  e-cutter files.  So I purchased an electronic cutting tool and merged the feather from My Digital Studio’s (MDS), Feathered Woodcuts Kit.  This digital image was originally a now retired stamp set.  In the digital environment it can also be used to make a die cut.  The SVG image of the feather was merged into the ecutter's design software.  I then used the trace tool to outline the image that created the cut line.    Next I  filled the page so that I could cut a bunch of them.   I hit the cut button and that was it; they were done.  Then I got cut happy. 

Here’s how I used the die cuts:

Ink:  Stazon Black
Stamp:  Remembering Your Birthday
Tools & Accessories:  Whisper White ⅝ Satin Ribbon, Basic Rhinestones

Fall Facebook Banner

I thought it was time to change by Facebook Banner to a theme heading into the the Fall season.  This was a template in MDS that I resized and modified to capture the some of my favorite Stampin' UP! colors.

Charming Owlways

My daughter has joined Origami Owl.  Of course there are greater than 15,000 others in line to begin their business.  This is giving her time to establish her business plan and goals.  First on her list was to establish her social media pipeline with a Facebook Page.  This is the banner I made for her using MDS.  Cute huh?  If your interestedin hosting an Origami Owl Jewelry Bar, she will be ready in just a few months.

Facebook Spring Cover & Badge

Facebook Spring Cover 2013

With 12 inches of snow on the ground, I had to THINK SPRING!!  What better way than opening up MDS (My Digital Studio) on my laptop and create my Spring Facebook Cover and Badge while watching the snow fall.  I was sure glad not to have to go anywhere.  I hope all my peeps are safe.  I created these using the Lemonade Stand Collection.
