Welcome to My Digital Craft Corner on this rainy Tuesday in SE Alaska. Well…it is still a terrific Tuesday because we get new digital downloads for My Digital Studio today. Check them out here and then order the ones that catch your fancy.

I used the Natural Composition Overlays to create texture on my background by stamping it in the same Certainly Celery color as the card stock and changing the drop shadow to Always Artichoke with opacity and blur at 100%. I shrank down the Cottage Wall dsp so the pattern would show in the butterfly. As a final touch, I added three dahlias in Perfect Plum on the butterfly.

Thanks for coming to visit today. I hope you will stay a while and enjoy a virtual cup of coffee….no wait!…it is hot elsewhere in this country. I hope you take time to emjoy a virtual iced coffee or tea while you browse through my blog. As always, you can click on the supply names to order those you need to recreate this card.

Digital CASE of traditional card

CCMC207 Bring on the Cake BD card for Jane-001
     Connie's traditional card                  My digital CASE

I love a challenge so I challenged myself to digitally CASE this cheerful card that Connie Babbert created. It was a lot of fun to do this. I used a lot of resized squares for masking and played with the drop shadows of the squares to create the pinwheel. Did you know that when you turn a punch but want the dsp to stay upright, you just unclick the box that says 'rotate with punch'? That is how I was able to keep the print of the dsp upright when I turned the rectangle punch. I created this digital card for Jane Giggy's birthday. Happy Birthday, Jane.

I used Patio Party Designer Series Paper (127190), Bring on the Cake stamp brush set (124015) and the Eyelet Border Punch (122150) in addition to the square punches to create this card. If you would like to CASE this card as well, just click on the linked names of the supplies to go to my online store to order them. Don't forget to try the 30-day FREE trial of My Digital Studio Express if you don't already have My Digital Studio. Just click here to order it from me. You get the ability to immediately download the program which contains all the essential software to run the program plus a few content files to get you started. You can then order additional downloads of files you would like to use in your designing. Here is the link to that section of my online store. In addition, you get me as your personal instructor, so order it today!

The difference is that I have a ways to go before I start having lack of storage space with the digital versions.

As usual, the new downloads are great! Click here to see them and then order the ones you want from my online store. I chose the By the Seashore stamp brush set because it is one the great stamp sets in the new traditional catalog. It has a wonderful collection of shells. The foot prints are from the Boardwalk stamp brush set. I love these pictures of our oldest granddaughter and her friends at the beach. Hope you like the page.

My Digital Studio Monday – Happy Father’s Day

MDS Monday 6-18-12-001    Father's Day card

Welcome to My Digital Studio Monday.The photo on the right is of a traditional Father's Day card we made in a recent workshop. Inside it says "…a Happy Father's Day. It is the card my hubby received today. I decided to challenge myself to create this card digitally for My Digital Studio Monday. The card on the left is my digital one. I think I came pretty close!

I used the half-circle punch to create the waves just like I did on the traditional card. The fishing pole is an arrow I made really narrow and elongated. The fishing line is that flag punch just really elongated and made very narrow. The little fish is from the Summer Splash stamp brush set (126039).

I had a lot of fun creating this card using My Digital Studio. You can have this fun too by giving the program a try. You can even try it with no committment. All you have to do is click here to order and download your FREE 30-day trial of My Digital Studio Express. You will have 30 days to play and create with the program. After the 30 days, you either have to order it from me or the trial will be over. I will be delighted to have you take me and Stampin' Up! on this great offer. I love using My Digital Studio and I love teaching others how to create with it too.

Until next time…blessings,

Hey, it's Terrific Tuesday at My Digital Craft Corner and Stampin' Up! has offered us some terrific downloads today. You can see them here and order those you want from me all in one stop. :o) The Soft Blossoms digital download was a hugely popular download and Stampin' Up! has followed this week with Bright Blooms.

A faithful follower of this blog, Dorothy Cordes, took Patty Bennett's idea of filling a heart with all the Soft Blossoms and filled a punch art wagon with them. I decided to take that idea further by filling a punch art watering can with these Bright Blooms. I had to do a lot of masking to get the shapes I wanted but am really pleased with the outcome. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did in designing this card.

Thanks for coming by to visit today. BTW…have you tried My Digital Studio yet? If not, what are you waiting for?

You’ve Got Mail but there is Postage Due

Postage due-001 copy

Supplies: My Digital Studio (118108), My Digital Studio Express (124483), or 30-day FREE trial of My Digital Studio Express (129600), Postage Due Stamp Brush Set (127201),Modern Label Punch and Square Punch – included in Punch Shapes (118853) and in the My Digital Studio software programs, Very Vanilla Seam Binding Ribbon (123957)

I was so surprised to see all the new digital downloads released on June 1st. One of the stamp sets I had debated ordering from the catalog is Postage Due. I love the collage stamp and was delighted to see that we have a digital version of it. The Travel Post stamp is not a solid stamp so the edges of the underlying layers show through. I placed a square punch filled with Summer Starfruit behind the stamp and grouped them together before I rotated and placed the stamp. Problem solved! The background is the beautiful new Midnight Muse color.

Thanks for coming by to visit today. I hope you like the card. Please sign my 'guest book' by leaving a comment so I know you visited.

Until next time…blessings,

Welcome to The Soggy Stamper. Our theme for today was 'pet love'. What an easy theme for me! I love taking pictures of our dachhunds as they are so entertaining. Even when they are sleeping, they entertain us…LOL! I wanted texture to the gumball green background so I added the Hip and Handsome Overlay. However, I wanted it to be subtle so I changed the color to Gumball Green and all you see it the drop shadow.

Did you notice that June 1st we got a lot of new digital downloads along with the new catalog? I wanted to post about it on Saturday but just didn't quite get it done. Come back on Wednesday to se a card featuring the Postage Due stamp brush set. I was debating on order the traditional version of the stamp set and am happy I now have it in the digital form. Click here to see and order all the new downloads from June 1.
