In Praise of MDS 2

Remember back in August, when I said that I'd purchased My Digital Studio 2, and I was planning to play with it, learning how to use it?  Well, I've done a fair amount of exploring the software and I've been really pleased with it.  I've used it to design my blog header and buttons and I've used it to create a title design for my videos.  I have used it to print custom sentiments, which I've cut out and used on my regular cards, but, until last week, I had never used it to design an entire card.

I wanted an outdoorsy card for a friend of ours, but had no suitable stamp sets.  I remembered seeing a digital download for a stamp brush set with camping images on it.  So, I looked it up in the MDS catalogue and purchased it and down-loaded it within half an hour.  (It would have been faster if I had been more familiar with the process.)

Then it was an easy job to created the card panels on line and print them off.  I attached them to a card base of card stock.  Here's what it looked like:

I like the way you can add a lot of panels and give the design depth by adding drop down shadows.  I like the way it is so easy and inexpensive to purchase and download a stamp brush set, when you need something specific you don't have.  I like the way you can add your own photos right on the page and print them off.  Best of all, some of my greatly loved, but retired stamps and papers are still available on MDS 2!

But I admit, I still like the process of creating a card live, getting my fingers inky and the table sticky and tying real bows.  So I think I will also experiment with hybrid cards, where you use MDS 2 to create the main image panel, print it off and then build the rest of the card the usual, non-digital way.  I have to say, however, that the mess in my craft room was a whole lot less with MDS 2!
So easy to create a message for the inside, too, as you can just type whatever you want.  You're not restricted to just stamp sets or handwriting.  You'll want to try it out too.  It's so affordable and you can download a free trial to try it out.
And just a reminder that today and tomorrow are your last chances of taking advantage of the "Back to Spool" promotion.  With every $50 you spend, Stampin' Up will give you a free roll of 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon, a $12.25 value for free!  And you can chose it in any of the five new In-Colours.

Ready, Set, Go!!!

I've been spending my time over the last week, preparing to go to our Regional meeting in Tacoma this weekend.  I've been really looking forward to it, but there was a lot of prep work I needed to do. 

I needed swap cards, which took up a lot of time, but I'm happy with the number I have.  I may still make a few more if there is time tomorrow.  I needed roomie gifts, a nice little tradition Stampin' Up demonstrators have and I got those completed.  Teaser photo below:

I will get back late Saturday night, and I am teaching Sunday School  at 9 am Sunday morning, so had to be all prepared for that.  After church, there is a special appreciation tea for the most wonderful woman who has been a spiritual mentor for so many women over the years!  I've been privileged to know her for 20 years, so I wanted to be prepared for that.  The guests are making scrapbook pages of their memories and their families as a gift for her.  I am donating paper and embellishments, so I needed to gather all that together so it would be ready. 

Then, I have two technique classes coming up next week, so I wanted to have all the cards designed.  And I wanted my blog posts ready to go.  So I have been busy, and probably will be until I leave at noon tomorrow!  My craft room looks like a bomb exploded in there!

I wanted to share a card I designed for my technique class next week.  I got the idea at the technique night of my upline, Tamara.  My theme for the night is "Let's Do Fall with Flair", so I wanted something a little out of the ordinary.  Here's what I came up with:

At Tamara's we embossed a Christmas design in silver and water-coloured it in.  I thought gold embossing powder would work better with these warm fall colours, and the design was so intricate, that I opted for sponging some So Saffron, Cajun Craze and Old Olive strategically around the wreath.  Water-colouring would have taken way too long.  I like the look of the sponging with the raised gold lines of the image, which, by the way is from the Full of Blessings stamp set.  I used the garland from that set on the So Saffron panel, stamping it in So Saffron ink and heat embossing it with Clear embossing powder.  I layered it with More Mustard and Cajun Craze panels on top of the Soft Suede card base and added a bow in Crumb Cake taffeta ribbon, using this technique that I featured a few posts ago.

I hope you enjoyed this sample.  I'd love to have you come to my classes if you live in my area.  Just click on the Classes button to take you to my class schedule page.  If you don't see the type of class you want, won't you let me know?  I'm always looking for new ways to improve my service to my customers.  Just leave me a comment below.  I really enjoy reading your comments and getting to know you better!  Thanks for dropping by today!

You Can't Catch Me!

As a child, I had an extremely overactive imagination.  When I was about 10, my dad finished a beautiful bedroom for me downstairs, so I wouldn't have to share with my brother.  But... it was downstairs, and no one else slept down there, and every night I could hear footsteps walking right up to my bedroom door and stopping!  I was so freaked out, I had to give the bedroom to my brother and reclaim my old room.  I never stopped to think I might have hurt my dad's feelings, after he had worked so hard to build it for me, I just knew that one night, whatever it was that was making those footsteps, was going to open that door and come in!  And I didn't want to be there!!

So when I heard the story of the Gingerbread Man when I was little, it was one of those stories that got my imagination revved and I could feel every bite that fox took out of the poor little guy! I've always felt ambivalent toward gingerbread men ever since, as cute as they are.

Nevertheless, as I started to create my MOJO Monday #260 card, I realized that a gingerbread man was what was needed as the main image.  It's round/square week, and although I didn't quite make a circle, I'm getting closer, by making a round/square card:

I used the largest Window Frames framelit to create the outline shape of the card.  I folded my card stock in half and positioned the framelit just so the top edge was slightly over the edge where the fold was and cut out the two layers at once.  This is not recommended by Stampin' Up and might void the warranty on your framelits, but I have never had a problem with two layers before. 
Here's the Mojo sketch:
The base is Crumb Cake and then I cut out the next smaller framelit in Always Artichoke and adhered some Fan Fair DSP to it.  Then I cut out the strip of Cherry Cobbler Core'dinations card stock and embossed it with the Lacy Brocade embossing folder and sanded it lightly to reveal the lighter red underneath.  I stamped some of the 7/8" cotton ribbon with a design from the Border Banter stamp set in Always Artichoke and used it as an extra layer.  The little gingerbread man is from the Scentsational Season stamp set and I stamped him in Chocolate Chip in on a circle punched from Very Vanilla.  I sponged the edges with Crumb Cake and mounted it on a Crumb Cake square, which I pierced around the edges using the Stampin' Up Piercing Tool.  I used a slightly larger square of Cherry Cobbler to back this and fancied up the edges using the Finishing Touches Edgelit.
I popped this panel up on Dimensionals, after adding the Merry Christmas greeting from the Mixed Medley stamp set.  The piece de resistance is the Brushed Bronze Designer Button, threaded with some Cherry Cobbler Scalloped Tulle Ribbon, the first time I've used it!  I should have used it sooner, because you can do so many things with it!
Isn't he cute?  I can just hear him saying," Run, run as fast as you can!  You can't catch me, I'm the Gingerbread Man!"  But then, I always did have an extra-active imagination!

Mr. Lonely

I must be nuts!  It's 11:36 pm and I just finished filming and editing another Crafty Clues by Heather video tutorial!  I should be going to bed while it publishes to You Tube because that takes FOREVER!  Instead, I'm trying to write the blog entry to post it in.  Why, because I want it to be there for my readers in the morning!  I care about you all so much! 

Actually, I'm trying to get that done, so I can concentrate on making some swaps for Regionals next weekend! (How did that happen so soon?  I just got back from Convention!)  Anyway, I titled this post Mr. Lonely in honour of an obscure colour in the Regals collection of Stampin' Up colours called "Bravo Burgundy".  As I was looking at my paper rack, trying to decide what colour to use for the card I was featuring in my video, my eye caught sight of a colour I rarely use, and others rarely use it, as far as I can tell by the blogs I follow.  Even Stampin' Up must consider it a second class citizen, because there are NO ribbons in that colour, at all! No brads are that colour...There is nothing to coordinate with Bravo Burgundy.

Poor little guy, I thought.  I'm going to give him his big break!  So I got out the Colour Coach and found More Mustard, Crumb Cake and Baja Breeze and River Rock could be paired with it.  I chose Crumb Cake, but I needed a colour in the same general hue for the Two Step Stamping I was demonstrating, so I found Pretty in Pink would do the trick.  Thanks for the Colour Coach, Stampin' Up.  Here's the card I came up with:

I think Mr. Lonely came through, don't you!  He made the most of his big break!  The card base is Bravo Burgundy, of course, as is the matte for the main image, die cut with the Labels Collection Framelits, and the backing for the sentiment, cut with the Modern Label punch.  And since there are no ribbons in Bravo Burgundy, I made a paper border, cut on both edges with one of the Finishing Touches Edgelits.  The back panel and the sentiment are Crumb Cake.  I used the Fancy Fan embossing folder to give the back panel some delicate texture. The video below will give you the details on how to stamp the main image. (I used Wild Wasabi and Always Artichoke for the leaves, by the way.)

So without further ado, here is the latest Crafty Clues by Heather:

So, indeed, goodnight, and when you think about it, take Mr. Lonely out of isolation once in a while and let him strut his stuff!  He'll really appreciate it!

Yes, that's me these days!  So much to do with my Stampin' Up business, at church, with drama group.  I feel like I need about 3 days, just to get organized and focused.  Ah, well, that will come....maybe....sometime soon....
I was hoping to have a video completed for today, and it's still a priority, but, just in case, I thought I would post my entry in the Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge #143:

This card was created for one of the very special people in my life, who just happens to love fall and fall colours, and who was, coincidentally, born in the fall!  I was thinking about needing to use up the Howlstooth and Scaringbone DSP, because it is rife with all the gorgeous fall colours, and wouldn't be as appropriate for winter and spring.  This was a perfect opportunity!

Here's the challenge sketch:

I just couldn't resist the chance to make a little paper medallion...rosette...lolly?  What is the official term, anyway?  Let me just consult the 2010 Geneva Agreement on Stamping Terms.........................
(Ha!  Had you there, didn't I?  There is no such thing, except in my eccentric imagination!)  Anyway, I made one:

I used our Simply Scored Scoring Tool to do this and with this DSP  it turned out really well.  This would be a great topic for another episode of Crafty Clues by Heather, so look for that in a week or so.

The card base is More Mustard card stock with a back panel of Early Espresso.  Then I layered on the Howlstooth and Scaringbone DSP (Love that name!  I would like to have a job with Stampin' Up just coming up with product names.  What a hoot!)  The images are from the French Foliage stamp set, which I know you know because I've used them so much recently, and the sentiments are from Loving Thoughts and Teeny Tiny Wishes.  A little splash of colour with some Tangerine Tango Scallop Dots ribbon and two cute "button" brads from Vintage Trinkets, and it's ready to go!

 Oh, and I think you will recognize the Rock and Roll technique on the the main leaf image.  That's where you ink up your stamp with the lighter coloured ink first (More Mustard here) then roll the edges of your stamp all the way around in the darker colour (Tangerine Tango).  That way you get the variegated look to your image.

So if my video is completed, I will post it later today.  Otherwise it will wait until tomorrow.  In the meantime, Happy Stampin'

10,000 Hits

While I was out at a Christmas Stampers' Dozen with my upline, Tamara,  I reached 10,000 hits on my blog!  Yay!  And you know what that means.... it means I had to draw for the Blog Candy Giveaway winner...

Here is my DH doing the deed, impartially, randomly, and oh-so-handsomely (lol).

AND the WINNAH is ..................... (Drum roll, please)..................................................

Danielle Godin-Calder!
Danielle, we will connect so I can get your prize winnings to you.  Congratulations!
Thanks to everyone who left comments and followed my blog.  I promise I will do my best to keep you entertained, inspired and instructed!
And, with that in mind, I wanted to show you two cards I CASEd from a paper crafter whose work I really admire, Justin from JK Cards.  The card in question is here. I really liked the well-balanced designs and the great colour combos that Justin uses.  In every challenge gallery I look at, I pick his cards out every time as favourites.   And here are two cards that I made using that basic design:

and this one:

The first I made as a make and take for a team meeting and the second was made for the young son of my Pastor, who had been very ill.  I really wanted to showcase the Orchard Harvest DSP with its beautiful colours, and more of the Perfectly Preserved stamp set with the Cannery Collection Framelits that co-ordinate with it.  These are fairly straight-forward, except that the sentiment on the second card was made using MDS 2 (My Digital Studio 2) and I stamped three corn stamps in Lucky Limeade and three in More Mustard, then cut the ears with the kernels showing out of the More Mustard ones and paper pieced them on the green cobs.
Hope you enjoy these, and please, go check out Justin's blog.  You'll be inspired!

Halloween Howlies

I have always been conflicted about Halloween.  If it was just me, I wouldn't bother celebrating, but it's so much fun for kids to dress up and be outside in the dark!  And as a teacher, I would always have a party for my students, and dress up myself, but I really have problems with the darker side of Halloween.  I'm not quite sure what the attraction is to evil and fear and mayhem, but maybe it's a way of speculating, "Could I live through that?  How would I handle a situation so terrible?"

But if we stick to the fun side of Halloween, the colours and images are very rich and vintage and cool.  I'm doing one card!  We have almost no trick or treaters at our house, so I won't be designing treat bags or anything like that, but I wanted to participate in the Dynamic Duos challenge for this week,  Lucky Limeade and Black with Halloween as a dessert option.  I just got the Toxic Treats stamp set in the mail and as I put it together, I visualized a 3D card with the images at different depths.  Here's how that visualization worked itself out in real life:

I found a video tutorial for how to make  this Step Ladder or Accordion fold card here.  It was quite easy to follow, but there are lots of tutorials out there.

I made the card base on a 6" x 10" piece of Lucky Limeade card stock and added some black Neutrals Designer Paper Stack DSP to the different panels.  The steps are 1", 1 1/2" and 2 1/2" wide from front to back.  I stamped the images from Toxic Treats and one from Christmas Lodge with StazOn Jet Black ink and fussy cut them all except the gravestones which perfectly coordinate with the Decorative Label punch.  I just cut off the little curved end on the bottom of each.  I used a blender pen and some Basic Black ink to colour in the snow on the roof of the lodge, so it would look more sinister and not covered in snow.  Then I used the Little Leaves Sizzlet to cut out several sprigs of black leaves and added them to the backs of the panels, especially the side panel.  The new ribbon slide works great on the Lucky Limeade Ruffled ribbon, and I used one of the framelits from Apothecary Accents to cut out the sentiment.

I used one of the doilies from the Delicate Doilies sizzlet to create the spider web in the top corner.  I was really pleased with the way the whole thing worked out according to the picture in my mind!
Here's the challenge photo:  

It was fun to see all the other Halloween designs on this challenge site.  Give it a visit and enjoy seeing them yourself.

MOJO Monday Tuesday

Does that title make any sense?  If the challenge was called, say, the Popcorn Challenge, the title would be Popcorn Challenge Tuesday, but because the site is called Mojo Monday, I have to entitle my post MOJO Monday Tuesday.  See? ... Never mind!

Do you have cats!  I've had cats almost my whole life and for a majority of that time I've had two cats at once.  I love my cats, but they're not as simple as dogs.  They don't love you unconditionally.  They don't eat, bark, sleep and lick your face; they dine, meow, repose and allow you to pat them.  They don't have owners, they have staff.  And they have quirks!  Oh, do they ever!  One of my cats, Pickle, won't eat if there is no new food in her bowl since the last time.  It's stale!  But if I add three or four new pieces, she'll eat the rest quite happily.  And she'll enthusiastically drink from the algae-loaded fish pond, but refuses to drink tap water that has been sitting in her bowl.  If, however, we pour it from the Brita filter water jug, that's a different story! 

The other cat, Beetle, has a thing about closed doors.  She'll sit before a closed door and meow piteously until we chase her away or open the door.  Never mind that it's a door leading to the washer and dryer, or a broom closet; if it's closed she wants to go in there.  But if you open the outside door, she'll sit there for ten minutes deciding if she wants to go out there or not.  Here's a cute cartoon that was posted on Facebook.  So true!

None of this has anything to do with my card, so let's press on!

I got into the Comfort Cafe DSP package, and I also used the Daydream Medallions set that I really haven't played with much since Convention.  I'm kind of liking this folksy style.  Here's the challenge sketch for MOJO Monday #259:

I used the colour palette of the DSP for this card:  Soft Suede, Midnight Muse, Pool Party, Cajun Craze, Very Vanilla and there's a little Summer Starfruit on the DSP itself.  I embossed the back Very Vanilla panel and the front DSP panel with the Square Lattice Embossing folder and the Big Shot.  To die cut the Daydream Medallion shapes and the Midnight Muse flower at the back, I used the Floral Frames Framelits.  The sentiment from the Loving Thoughts set is stamped and sponged in Midnight Muse.  The flower is from the Lacy and Lovely set, stamped in Cajun Craze, while the leaves in Soft Suede are from the Stippled Blossoms set, both fussy cut.


A few homespun pearls to embellish, and it looks good enough cat to lie on??  Oh, and that reminds me of something else my cat, Pickle, does.  Every night, while we sleep, she goes down and raids my craft room, bringing up a scrap of paper or ribbon to leave for me on my bed.  I never know what I'm going to find in the morning, or what else she did with it before putting it on our bed.  So far, though, she's never brought up a completed card or anything really important, except the spool of Summer Starfruit Stitched Satin Ribbon she fetched upstairs last night.
She showed really good taste, and maybe she wanted in on the "Back to Spool" promotion from Stampin' Up:

Smart cat!  Are you smarter than Pickle?  Of course you are, so make sure you call me with that $50 or more order before the end of September!

Bonus Post

I don't usually post on Sunday nights, but I had a lovely day at church, then at a church BBQ down by the lake, and still time to design a thank you card for some guys who helped to lay a new floor in one of the rooms at our church.  I wanted to enter it in Our Creative Corner's Challenge for this week.  The challenge is to create a masculine card using their sketch and as an option to make it monochromatic.  Here's my take on it:

I used one of my new favourite stamp sets, Clockworks and heat embossed the main image with Gold Stampin' Emboss powder.  The background stamps for this set are amazing, and the gears so appeal to my steampunk heart, great for a masculine card.

I used Soft Suede card stock as a base and added DSP from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack and three strips of Early Espresso and Cajun Craze card stock.  The main panel used the background stamps, stamped off, in Crumb Cake and Soft Suede.  The gears were inked up in Soft Suede and the pocket watch itself was stamped in Versamark, then embossed.  The main image panel and the sentiment, which is from the Lacy and Lovely set, were sponged in Soft Suede ink.  The three strips each bear a Metallic Brad.

Fun to do, and didn't take long to make, so I wanted to post tonight and enter the challenge.

It was, as I said, a gorgeous day!
