Getting Digi with it!!! in digital!! I needed a card for Will's preschool teacher - who is wonderful - and also moving away :( . The problem? I don't have any teacher related stamps. Then while playing with My Digital Studio over the weekend I saw that there was a perfect "stamp set" to use. School Days. I hadn't even noticed it before - granted there are 62 stamp sets with the initial purchase of My Digital Studio. Yep. 62! I KNOW~!! All at your disposal. Plus, they can all be resized to your liking, they can be printed in any color. It truly is a FUN program to use. And it's not just for scrapbooking.

Okay - so, I didn't have a stamp set to use for a card. How does MDS come into play? Well, take a look:

Above, I created my own background paper. I stamped the alphabet included with the stamp set (enlarged it first) on my page, then copied and pasted it until it filled the page. I printed it onto Not Quite Navy Cardstock, in Not Quite Navy Ink. Clever - eh?


I "stamped" the images in different colors and various sizes. Notice the b e s t image? That is what I used on my Dad card in my last post. I love the fact that you can resize these images, then they fit great in punches. I printed out two sheets of images - one that I enlarged everything quite a bit.

I know - that sheet on top is a little goofy - I had an oops when I had my paper in the printer and printed the background on my vanilla cardstock. But, ya know what - I can still use it - I think it'll become some punched letters, or some more background - who knows. Sometimes mistakes turn out to be hidden treasures - right Bonnie??? There is always room for embellishments!
Above is another sheet of background that I did on Old Olive.

And HERE my friends is the finished card:

It doesn't really even look like it's all computer generated. I think it helps that I threw in some texture with the ribbon and the notebook punch all curled up, inked up the edges of all of the circles. I am in love with this - the card, the software, the possibilities! It's not just for scrapbooking folks!
