It’s Saturday! Time for a Stamping 411 card

4-9-11 sketch Fabulous Florets digital card 


For my Stamping 411 Saturday challenge today, I wanted to use one of the stamp sets that are in the Summer Mini catalog, Fabulous Florets. I love this stamp set but have lots of other flower stamps so didn't order it. However, I did order the My Digital Studio Fabulous Florets Stamp Brush set. Therefore this is a digital design. I colored the flower bud by superimposing the Blossom Petals Leaf 2 punch filled with Rose Red color and resized. I placed a scalloped circle of Whisper White behind the Regal Rose flower so the lines of the leaves and stems wouldn't show through the flower image. After stamping the leaves, I was not satisfied with the solid, flat image of the leaves. To fix this, I used the leaf stamps from Build a Blossom colored with Always Artichoke. I resized and rotated the stamps to fit on the leaves. This time, the card took much longer using My Digital Studio than it would have if I had made it by hand. But…the fun is in the creating, right? And I did have fun. So you don't miss out on the fun any longer, click on the link to order your own personal copy of My Digital Studio. The individual files work with most programs that use .png or .jpg files and layers. If you already have a favorite digital designing program, you are welcome to purchase any and all digital files you like.
