I may have said this before, but I'm loving the digital studio! There are so many things you can do with it, and right now you can have it and a ton of other products for only $87.50! The digital studio is normally $79.95, and for less than $10 more, you get 3 stamp sets, ink, markers, card stock, embellishments and more! This is the best deal on a demonstrator starter kit that I've ever seen.
I saw a neat new idea in the Occasions mini catalog, and, of course, I need instant gratification and couldn't wait until January. Or even December. (As a demonstrator, I can "pre-order" merchandise from catalogs! Neat, huh?) Anyway…I couldn't wait, so I did this background on the digital studio.
Now, you're wondering how in the world did I get three medallions on one card? I mean, that's a huge, whoppin' background stamp. In My Digital Studio, you can shrink or expand the size of stamps to fit whatever projects you're creating. I filled a full 8-1/2" x 11" sheet of Pretty in Pink card stock with them – so I have 4 card layers!
For this project, I stamped a Medallion image (available as an additional download for $1.95), resized it, then recolored it to Rich Razzleberry. Then I copied it, pasted it and downsized it a little more and recolored to Pretty in Pink. I repeated the copy, paste, downsize, recolor pricess with Early Espresso. I left the background white so I could print it on Pretty in Pink card stock. The colors are a tad off, since I used my home printer and not Stampin' Up!'s professional printing service, (have I mentioned I need instant gratification?) but I think the colors work quite well.
The only thing left was to stamp the greeting in Rich Razzleberry, tie a ribbon around the top two layers and adhere to a card. This is for a friend of mine. She's been having a miserable month, so I wanted to send her a card.
Here are the supplies –
Stamp Set: Sincere Salutations
Ink: Rich Razzleberry
Paper: Pretty in Pink, Early Espresso, Rich Razzleberry card stock
Other: My Digital Studio, Rich Razzleberry grosgrain
Thanks for stopping in! I have another "clothing inspired" card for tomorrow, unless I get the project I've been working on all week finished. It involves sewing, so it's taking a little longer since I have to actually use a needle and thread and not the fabric adhesive. *sigh* My poor fingers.
