Digital Birthday & Easter cards …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I want to share a card that I created on the “My Digital Studio” program from Stampin’ Up!  I must admit, I haven’t played with it for a while and I have a dear stampin’ friend who is looking for me to teach her.  So here we go …

I will begin with a video that will explain how to begin …

Here is a simple card I made using the template …

I chose a birthday format that was included in the My Digital Studio program I purchased.  The banners are the only thing on the card, so I clicked on the “stamp” tab and added the candles.  I clicked on the candle, then on the color tab to change the colors to match the banner!  How cool is that. (I put the black around the card because the white did not show up properly on the white background of my blog)

Then I clicked back on the “stamp” tab, found an alphabet and chose the number 5 (not sure why … all my grandkids are older than that, but it looked nice!)  Back to the color tab to match that up too.  Then to finish off the card, I added the text.

Here is my Easter card that I created using a blank pallet.  I began with the ”  ” Designer Series paper download.

Now, you can’t get much simpler than a piece of designer series paper, a greeting and a ribbon.  Hmmmm … just like stamping, but done on your computer.  Nice for those of you who don’t have the time to bring out your supplies and hand stamp a card.

The ribbon is found under the embellishment tab and the I found an Easter greeting under the “stamp” tab.  It really is fun, just to play around with it and experiment.

Here is the inside to my card …

Notice a familiar stamp set?  Want to know what so cool about that… nothing ever retires in the My Digital Studio!  Colors … Stamp Sets … they are all there.  I love it!

Please share you thoughts on the digital cards.  Don’t worry stampers, I will never give up my hand made cards, but this is a quick way to create!  Plus … you can combine the two.  Print out one of those pretty designer papers and embellish it with the cool stuff you have in your craft room.  You can have the best of two worlds.

Thanks for stopping by, and again, I would love to hear what you think.

Have an awesome day!
