My Digital Studio Cards

Patty's Garden Flower Cards Customer Gifts

 

My husband had a great idea... he said, "Why don't you create some cards with My Digital Studio using photos from your flower garden and make up gift sets and give them to your top customers this year!?". 

Wow.. Yes, why not!? :)

So, my top 25 Customers of 2014 will be receiving this gift from me!

  Mds-flower-photo-cards-patty-bennett

I created these cards using photos I've taken in my flower garden, then I used My Digital Studio to create the cards.  I had them printed through the My Digital Studio printing service.

So, a HUGE Thank You to my top 25 Customers of 2014.. I hope you enjoy your gift!

Bennett Family Christmas Cards 2013

Shop Online Anytime and Earn FREE STAMPS

Each year I love to share our annual Christmas card with you.  I created one for friends and family and one for my Luv 2 Stamp group of demonstrators. 

I enjoy creating them using My Digital Studio.. this is the Stampin' Up! digital program that allows me to use all of the Stampin' Up! artwork and create cards, letters, calendars, and home decor projects all professionally printed by the Stampin' Up! print service!!

This year as you can see, I played on the "Words with Friends" theme.. our family and many of our friends enjoy playing this fun game on our phones!

2013-friend-family-christmas-card
This is the front and back of the 5x7 postcard I created.  Pretty clever if I do say so myself!

If you enjoy scrabble and/or play Words with Friends, I hope you will consider adding a game with us on your smartphone!

I'm a copy cat...  I fell in love with the Basic Gray Polkadot cards in the Everyday Occasions card kit, so, I copied that card design in My Digital Studio!

My-digital-studio-everyday-occasions-copy-1

Everyday-occasions-card-kit-1<< out of all the Everyday Occasions kit cards, these polkdot cards were my favorite, so after I opened my 3rd kit, I decided maybe I should just copy that one in My Digital Studio :)

 

BELOW: I added a stamped and punched out tag to the printed cards to add dimension.  I drew the dashed lines with a Basic Black Stampin' Write marker. I stamped hello from the Four You stamp set on pg 22 of the Stampin' Up! Catalog, #130535 on whisper white cardstock and I punched it out with the Decorative Label Punch, #120907.

My-digital-studio-everyday-occasions-copy-2

I also added 3 Black Candy Dots (see above right).

My-digital-studio-everyday-occasions-insideThese cards were printed by the Stampin' Up! MDS Print service, and since it is the same low price to get all 4 surfaces printed as it is to print just the front, I always do the inside and back!

We are excited to bring you 

Stampin' Up!

You have probably reached me via Mindy's fun blog...  and if not, be sure to travel backwards on the tour and visit her! :)

I am so very grateful for sooooooooooo many things, and one of them is all of my amazing Stampin' Up! Customers!  I am sharing 2 projects with you today that I've made for my Stampin' Up! customers.

I'm super excited about this first project.. I just made these this week.  I designed images in My Digital Studio and then printed them on my HP Color Laser Printer onto our Tag a Bag chevron bags!!!

Tag-a-bag-chevron-gratitude

I added Washi Tape, a button and a burlap bow to decorate the bag.

These will be filled with little thank you goodies for my customers this fall.

Watch my blog on Monday, Oct. 21 for more info and more samples of printing on the bags!

Patty's 2nd Gratitude project:

This is one of the Customer Thank You cards I made for my dear customers this month:

Magnificent-maple-file-folder-card

I used a background that I created and printed from My Digital Studio, then stamped the Magificent Maple leaf in 3 colors, stamped A Million & One Thanks in Early Espresso ink, and then tied the orange ribbon around the card. 

Magnificent-maple-file-folder-cards

What happens when you need 250 Black Candy Dots?

September Mystery Hostess Code - PJV2U2N4

Shop Online Anytime and Earn FREE STAMPS

----------------

Question

Seriously.. what do you do when you need 250 Black Candy Dots?

Answer #1: buy 25 Packs of Neutrals Candy dots and use only the black ones

or

Answer #2: Buy 3 packs and color them all black with your Sharpie Marker

  250-black-candy-dots

 Although I know Stampin' Up! would have been very happy had I ordered the 25 packages, I opted to use my trusty Black Sharpie marker and color 3 packages of them black :)

View a video >>> on coloring your Rhinestones and Embellishments

Oh ya.. so WHY did I need 250 Black Candy Dots?

For my upcoming Founder's Circle Swaps! :)

Founders-circle-mds-swaps-patty

I created the background and inside using My Digital Studio, had them printed at the Stampin' Up! print service, then added ribbon and the tags, and of course the Candy Dots!

Founders-circle-mds-swaps-1

Hybrid elements/accessories added to the My Digital Studio card:

Black Chevron Ribbon #130010

Neutral Candy Dots #130934

Chalk Talk stamp set #130631 / 130634

Below are some of the other prototype ideas I created...

NA13F_BlogBadge-whiteThanks to my faithful customers and my amazingly talented downline, I was blessed again this year to place in the top 100 of Stampin' Up!

Hexagon Punch Quilt Cards in My Digital Studio

Shop Online Anytime for Stampin' Up! Supplies

and Earn Free Stamps with Patty!

You may remember almost 2 years ago I shared some Quilt Cards (here and here) that I created with Stampin' Up! punches and designer paper.  I truly treasure all the quilts I have from my grandmother, great grandmother and great aunts and loved using them for inspiration in my designs. So, I decided to create a "grandmother's garden" type quilt with My Digital Studio and the Hexagon Punch in MDS. 

My Digital Studio Hexagon Punch Quilt Cards

Hexagon punch mds quilt cards 1

This is the "card front" that I created in My Digital Studio using the "paper fill" function and the Hexagon Punch MDS download.. I printed 4 on a page on my color HP laser printer and used them as card fronts.

Hexagon punch mds quilt background

Then I ran the printed pieces through the Big Shot with different embossing folders to make them look kind of quilted or like fabric.

Hexagon punch mds quilt cloud 2Thanks to Cindee.. I reused the Hey There friend tag from a gift she gave me.

Doesn't the cloud embossing folder (#127022) look kind of like stitching?

I also tried the Elegant Lines embossing folder (#119277), and added a Paper Doily #129399, and a flower from the Artisan Embellishment kit #129328 on top of a Floral Framelits diecut #127012.

 I added a small piece of hexagon printed DSP from the Tea for Two pack #129311 at the bottom of the card

My 3rd sample features the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder #120175 and Calypso Coral and Daffodill Delight cardstock

Spring Catalog ideas

in the tour this month!! 


 You have probably joined me after visiting Jason's blog, and you can click on the "next blog" link at the bottom of the post to continue on the tour.  

I REALLY Love the new Soda Pop Tops from Stampin' Up!.. you'll find them on pg 24 of the Spring catalog, (order code #129388).  I thought I'd show you a few ways I've used the Soda Pop Tops on my card projects.

This card features the Chalkboard Technique done in My Digital Studio, mounted on a Basic Gray card.

Chalkboard amazing soda pop 1

This is the small size Soda Pop Top.. you will get 8 small and 8 large Pop Tops in your package.

I've used DSP from the Parker's Patterns pack (#131021) and Tea for Two (#129311), as well as the 1/2" circle punch, 7/8" scallop circle, and the 1-1/4" scallop circle punch.

Chalkboard amazing soda pop 3

You can see that they have a raised edge when you take them out of the package, and I've flattened mine in the Big Shot.  If you have not done that before, you will find instructions in my videos.. click here to view the video.

Simpy hello soda pop tops

Above I have paired up some Soda Pop Tops with My Digital Studio artwork inserts and some FREE Sale a Bration Happy Hello cards!  I used the fun Pop-Up Posies flowers (pg 18 Spring catalog, #131395) to give extra pops of color.
