Stampin' Up's My Digital Studio

I have had this digital program for quite some time and have built up a "library" of 85 brush sets.  So, I decided it was time to start doing something with all of this.
 This was a from a Designer Kit - Happy Birthday, Labels.  I inserted the label onto a "sheet" of white cardstock and then printed it with several other images.  I cut it out and added the white ribbon and popped it up on top of a beautiful sheet of blue paper that was embossed with a Happy Birthday folder.

For my Son-In-Law's Father's Day, I wanted to make a card using All In The Family.  To do this with rubber stamps would be a major task.  The heads are NOT connected to the bodies which are NOT connected to the legs or arms.  However, in My Digital Studio, it is very easy to move all of the parts to where they need to be.  I even added the glasses for both my daughter and son-in-law!  I then colored them with Copic markers.  The background "happy" paper is from a Cricut pad that I got on clearance and the red base cardstock is from my stash.  "Happy Father's Day!" is a rub-on from My Sentiments Exactly. 

For my second Son-In-Law's first Father's Day (baby is due Nov 8), I used the typewriter image from "Your My Type" and enlarged it to 4.25 x 5.5.  I placed the image at the bottom of the 8.5 x 11 "sheet".  I added "dear dad" from Holiday Blitz, "2" from Schoolbook Serif Numbers, and the bumblebee from Sweet Summer.  After it was printed, I trimmed the cardstock to 4.25 x 11 and folded it in half - forming an A2 card.  I trimmed the card to the shape of the typewriter bottom and accented with Black Enamel. 

The inside "Happy Father's Day" is from All Holidays and the tie from Holiday Blitz.  It is so easy to change the color of the image using all (even discontinued ones) Stampin' Up inks!

Lastly I did a generic card using my newest purchase, The Open Sea.  I printed the manifest in Not Quite Navy on white cardstock.  I used several ink pads to distress to an aged look.  The ship from The Open Sea was printed in black and colored using Prismacolors and cut with Spellbinder's Curved Rectangles along with a mat in dark blue cardstock.  The mat was cut the same size as the ship and enlarged by cutting it into 4 pieces and gluing them onto the back of the ship's piece.  I cut little scraps to fill in the gaps.  The anchor was also printed in black and colored with Prismacolors, cut out (oh what fun) and tied on with scrappers' floss. 

I am a total fan of My Digital Studio!  The brush stamp sets are VERY well priced and very versatile!

  1. Cindie - you did a wonderful job on all 3 of these cards - very clever on all 3 too! I want to explore MDS too - they're coming out w/MDS 2 - can't remember when but will be by Christmas I'm sure. Have you seen the recruiting incentive if you want to sign up as an MDS Demonstrator - your kit is digital! and the improvements they're going to make w/MDS 2 are fantastic. Thanks for sharing these cards & promoting the program.
    Luv ya!
