Happy Halloween My Digital Studio Card

For this week’s challenge I decided to play with My Digital Studio to create a Halloween card.  The colors were inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of Tangerine Tango, Elegant Eggplant, Garden Green and Basic Black.  Don’t these colors just scream HALLOWEEN!  It was so much fun using the coloring tool to add different colors to the digital stamp images.  If you haven’t tried digital crafting, download the free trial version of MDS here.  You can create cards, scrap book pages and books, journals and whatever your paper crafting mind can conjure.

Another Halloween Toxic Treat Card

This week on HSS we have a technique challenge – Crayon Rubbed Embossing!  I had never done this technique before and decided to use a black crayon instead of white to create an eerie spooky background…kind of grungy and kind of vintage.  I love this technique!  I used sponge daubers to sponge Raspberry Ripple, Pumpkin Pie and Lucky Limeade to create an eerie background for my black embossed witch.

Herringbone Halloween Card

I recently purchased the MDS2 upgrade and I LOVE IT!  It’s so much easier to work with and so many new features.  I was so excited about it that I created this week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge project using MDS2 to create the Herringbone technique.  I used the Houndstooth & Scaringbone digital DSP to create the background.  It was so easy to create digitally.  For a tutorial on how to create this technique go to SCS.  So easy!!

Playing with Pennants and Banners

This week Hand Stamped Sentiments is having a Banner Bash!  Create any paper craft project using banners or pennants.  I’ve been wanting to use my new Halloween stamp set Howl-o-Ween Creeps so here’s a sneak peek of one of the monster images and sentiments.  This set is so much fun!  I can’t wait to create more Halloween items with this set.  I stamped the Frankenstein image on water color paper then used a blender pen and ink pads to color him.  I punched him out with 1-3/4 inch circle punch and sponged the edges with Basic Black ink.  Since the theme for the challenge is pennants I decided to create one large pennant using the Perfect Pennants die for the front of my card.  I then printed with My Digital Studio the DSP layers.  I used Cast a Spell and the Night Owl Digital kit.  I hope you’re inspired to start thinking about your fall and Halloween projects.  The Howl-o-Ween Creeps stamp set will be available on September 1st.
