My Digital Studio Hybrid Baby Card

I love the versatility of My Digital Studio. I created this fun card, printed it out in a reduced size, and punched and layered it onto cardstock. My Digital Studio gives you so many fun options to create. You can shrink or enlarge images and print them yourself or send them off to Stampin' Up's printers. I learned some new ways to color punches and stamps which gives me even more flexibility! Check with me today if you are interested in finding out more about My Digital Studio and how it might be a wonderful addition to your software creations!

Mother's Day Card

I used the "Mother of Mine" stamp from the Occasions mini to make this card. I usually think of pastels for Mother's Day, but I like how this turned out with the bright colors.

Cake box

So, what do you think of my first cake box? It is just a trial one to see how it could be decorated. I will be trying some more in the future. The cake is made from a scoreboards sizzix die and then decorated with Stampin' Up papers and ribbon.
Have a great day!

Easter Basket

I have included a tutorial for making this cute Easter Basket.

I used the petal cone die to make this pretty Easter basket. I cut three cones, 6 scallop half circles, and 3 banners out in Pretty in Pink card stock. I measured 3 inches from the top fold and cut off the end, then measured 2 inches from the fold and scored the lines.

After preparing each panel as shown and attaching the 3 panels together, I punched out 2 flowers using the Fancy Flower Punch. I attached one on the inside bottom area and the second one on the outside bottom area. I punched 3 circles of the Springtime Vintage Designer Series Paper using the 2 1/2 inch circle punch, cut them in half and attached them to the flaps. I cut three 3/8 x 4 inch strips of the Springtime Vintage Designer Series Paper and attached them to the banner pieces. I attached the banners together and then to the basket with the Subtles glimmer brads. The final touch was adding the scalloped half circles to each flap.

Stamp 'n Chat Cards

These are the 2 cards that I used for our demonstrator stamp 'n chat last evening. The main stamp set used in both cards is the Easter Blossoms set from the Occasions Mini Catalog. I also used a new stamp set on the top one, and a new DSP on the bottom one. These are specials that will be available April 1st. I will be providing more details of that special very soon.

St . Patrick's Ronald McDonald House Project

These are the projects I did at the Ronald McDonald House yesterday. It was lightly attended, so I made up a batch of them and left them at the front desk. The bottom photo shows a scalloped circle--it has a gold chocolate coin attached in-between 2 of those scallop circles.

Spinner Card

This was the card that I made for my son's birthday last week. It was my first card using the spinners from the Occasions Mini. It was fun to make, and he really enjoyed it!
