It is another Terrific Tuesday here in My Digital Craft Corner! When I saw the cute Frightening Feline stamp in the Holiday mini catalog, I thought it would be wonderful to have it as a stamp brush set in My Digital Studio so it could be sized big enough to make framed art for Halloween. Guess what…it is one of the new downloads today. Yay!

Here is the framed art I created. One of the wonderful things about MDS2 is that you can color portions of stamps now. I had a lot of fun coloring some of the words in this cat. You can even color parts to be ombre color as I did with the word 'sneaky' on the cat's shoulders. It helps to enlarge your image while you are doing the coloring and if you accidentally color onto a different part of the image, all you have to do is click on the undo button.

I love the shape of this Lots of Tags shape 4 punch. It is one of the items I got when I downloaded MDS2+. The Howlstooth and Scaringbone designer series paper also came with MDS2+. Now, I must admit that I have purchased lots of downloads since MDS first came out, but even so, I purchased the full MDS2+. Many of the stamp brush sets I already had downloaded are now svg files so they were also upgraded. (Having the stamp brush set be a svg file means you can enlarge it without distortion as I did with the cat.)

Finally I added the Vintage Overlays stamp brush set to the designer series paper to give it an aged look and to give the suggestion of spider webs.

For those of you who prefer traditional stamping with stamps, paper, and ink; this would make a great Halloween card or small piece of framed art. Frightening Feline is a single wood-mount stamp (128105) and you can order the Howlstooth and Scaringbone designer series paper here. Unfortunately, the Lots of Tags shape 4 is a My Digital Studio exclusive punch but you could use one of the Big Shot dies or framelits to achieve the same effect.

I hope you like this project. I am not much of a Halloween person but I am going to print out this one and hang it on my wall. Be sure to click on the item name in the supplies list if you don't have all the necessary supplies to create this project and want to order them from me.

Until next time…blessings,
Sue Erickson

    Thanks for the compliment, Patricia. You should give MDS a try. You could sign up for the 30-day trial of MDS2 or MDS2+ and see how you like it. http://www.mydigitalstudio.net has tons of help to get you going. To make this card traditionally, just crumple the designer series paper and lightly rub your stamp pad over the wrinkles. Then use markers to color the words on the stamp.

    I’m not a great Halloween person either, but this is cute. Need more time to play. Couple days and I’ll have some.
