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:

Feather Ecutter 

Paper:  Whisper White, Basic Black & Back to Black Designer Series Paper
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.

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.

My December Facebook Cover

  Thi s is t he this Facebook Cover I made for the month of December using My Design Studio and the Bright Hopes Stamp Set.  I plan on making a new cover each month.  I'm certain that I will get better as I become more familiar with the software.  It is an amazing package and has all sorts of techniques I couldn't even dream about.  Each time I use the software, I learn something new.  

I used the ornament from a card for my badge.  Just something fun to do.

These finish up my holiday projects posts.  Not sure if I'm happy or sad.  Either way, it's time to move on.  Goodbye 2012.  Hello 2013.  Happy New Year!!!
