First Day of School My Digital Studio Card

It’s hard to believe that back to school is around the corner and summer is almost over.  Where did the time go?!  The inspiration challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments inspired me to create this card on My Digital Studio.  It was so quick and easy and one of the features of MDS is you can color the stamps.  LOVE that feature.  Wouldn’t it be nice to put this card in your child’s lunch box.  It would be a great way to wish them a happy first day of school.

Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration Challenge #28

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments it’s an inspiration challenge.  The challenge is to use the photo from Pottery Barn to inspire your project, which can be a card, scrapbook page, gift item, etc. Take the challenge.  Submissions are due by noon on Monday, August 16th. I can’t wait to see your projects.   Remember you can use any brand of products to create your projects.

I really love the sunburst quilt on the wall so I used it as my background paper for the Top Note shape.  I printed the full size photo of the quilt on matte photo paper.  Click here for full size photo.  I then cut out the quilt portion I wanted on my Top Note Die then ran it through the Big Shot.  To add dimension and texture I ran the Very Vanilla layer through my Big Shot with the Perfect Details Texture Plate.  I then made a scallop flower and secured it with a 3/4″ circle from the background paper and a silver brad from the Hodgepodge set.  Click here for the fan fold flower tutorial on Splitcoasters.  I adhered the Top Note to the Very Vanilla layer, added the ribbon then adhered the scallop flower with mini-glue dots.

Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration Challenge – Pride and Prejudice

This week over at HSS we are starting things off with an Inspiration Challenge from the Jane Austen book Pride and Prejudice. It’s sure to spark many ideas with so many themes throughout the book, (honesty, love, marriage, family), you will have no problem coming up with your creation.  Since Pride and Prejudice focuses on young ladies in search of husbands I chose to make a card for a bride-to-be.  Because I am big into fashion I tend to think about costumes of the period and the first thing I thought of were those wonderful dresses.  Very frilly and feminine with lace, organza and satin.    For my project I chose Whisper White to represent the upcoming wedding and Bashful Blue for luck.  I used the Final Press textured impressions embossing folder to create the white background then applied Bashful Blue SU pastel.  I love how it gives a hint of color.  I used My Digital studio to print the Soft Flower Bashful Blue background on Whisper White and made my own dress template and accessorized it with very feminine embellishments.  I had so much fun creating this card!  I can’t wait to see your creations.
