Digital Fun...Three Ways!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN! I hope everyone has a fun and safe holiday!!! I just wanted to quickly share some fun ways to use the new My Digital Studio software. It really is a lot of fun and so easy to use. This first card was done in the software, and just printed out using Stampin' Up!'s printer. I didn't make any changes to it after it was printed...it's a straight digital card...
Here is a view from the side so you can see it is just a flat card. Super easy to mass produce and flat to mail! Yet still can have your design style to it.
This next card is called a "hybrid" card. I had this card printed, but left off the ribbon and the scalloped saying. That way, I could add these embellishments myself....to combine digital and traditional....AKA hybrid. Here is that card...
A side view so you can see the ribbon (I just punched a small hole on the side so I could fit my ribbon around the card and still tie in the front) and the saying, that is up on dimensionals...

I really loved this because I LOVE using traditional elements and that is never going to change! :) But I love doing digital stuff as well...and it's fun to change the size of the stamps/punches/etc to fit whatever you need it to!
Then this last card is done by just using the layout I designed with the software. I made this entire card by hand...nothing was printed out. This card went together SO FAST because I didn't have to fuss with the design at all! Saved me a LOT of paper in the process! Here is the card...
I was also able to emboss the flowers....which added a fun touch. And I changed the pattern of the Crushed Curry Designer Series Paper to use up a scrap that I had already. Here is a close-up as well...
I LOVE using this software as a design help! I am having a lot of fun finding uses for this software. It can help in my crafting in so many different ways!
Thanks for visiting! I hope you enjoy! Let me know if you have any questions!!!
