Another Vintage Christmas Card with My Digital Studio

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a sketch challenge.  The sketch is featured in the December Success SU demonstrator magazine.  It’s an interesting sketch and since I had recently downloaded the vintage brads and crochet ribbon for My Digital Studio software, I had to use them for this project.  I created this card on MDS using my new downloads and Deck the Halls digital DSP.  I love the vintage suite which is available until January 3rd, 2011.  I also added a Soft Suede Vintage Overlay Texture on the Holly DSP to look like sponging.  It’s very subtle but it adds some darkening on the edges.  You’ll need to enlarge the card to see it.  I also used the Tearing Edge stamp set on the Cherry Cobbler layer.  I hope you get inspired to create with My Digital Studio.

Adorable Parc for PPA24

I have been meaning to make a card with the stamp set French version of Pendant Park.  It has a beautiful tree and border that I love.  So for this week’s PPA sketch challenge I decided to use these two stamps and the sentiment from the French Pendant Park set.  I combined Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla and Brushed Gold card stock with Really Rust DSP from the Hostess level 1 pack.  I added the metallic swirl and vintage brads to accent the metallic paper.  For another metallic touch I stamped the tree and the border with gold Encore ink and heat set it.  To help me stamp the border straight and extend it I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig.  I enjoyed playing along with this challenge.  For more inspiration go to PPA and see all the beautiful cards created by the designers.
