13 August 2013 – MDS Card Sketch

I don’t know about you but I’m in love with My Digital Studio ­and I may be addicted to buying downloads each week!! Did you know that every Tuesday, Stampin’ Up! release new downloads!! How great it that!!! You can go straight to them here.

But it’s also good to actually use what you’ve purchased!! I came across a blog today which does a challenge each week, MDS Monday. Check them out here. I haven’t done many cards in MDS yet so I thought I would try out their current card sketch which you can see here. They also include a video to explain some of the techniques used.

So here is the sketch.

15 June 2013 – I love a good Challenge!!

I am part of a Facebook group which is open to everyone who loves My Digital Studio™, Simply My Digital Studio Challenge, which has a new challenge each week to try out new techniques or sketches. You can check it out here.

Recently, a sketch was posted which I felt I could do now that I’ve been playing with MDS™ for a while. It didn’t take all that long to do once I had decided which papers to use. I got the Convention 2013 download which goes perfectly with my Convention photos. It also has an album which I’m still working on.

Challenge 1-001

It’s already time for a My Digital Studio Sale!! I am loving this great program. It’s so easy to use. I’m still working out how to use it but I’m not finding it too difficult. I have become slightly addicted to downloading more templates!! So it’s great that there is a sale on at the moment.

Here is one of my first pages using one of the free templates that are available.

25 April 2013 – Hellooooo, Poppet!!

Helloooo, Poppets!!!! Or rather Hello, Doily!! I love this doily stamp! I have seen so many lovely cards made with it!

I did this card at a new class that I’ve started close to home to show different uses for embossing.

We used the glossy card stock and embossing a doily using the versamark ink and white embossing powder. We then used a sponge dauber and rubbed it over the whole piece of card. A quick wipe off over the white embossing and voila!, awesomeness!!

Here’s a close up of the sentiment.
