I get to do the formal invitations for this event but we had a particularly large number of confirmands this year, so I got it in my head that I would get better at Stampin' Up's My Digital Studio. I have a friend who uses it beautifully - after she prints, she embosses, adds blings, etc and it looks "real"!
I was feeling fairly confident after I did a simple flyer using an MDS template. (This concert has been another huge reason that you haven't seen much posting on my blog - I'm involved in three of the groups - and it's tonight - so lots and lots of rehearsal time!!) FYI: I'm not too worried about posting her name as this poster can be found EVERYWHERE - it's going to be an amazing evening!
But I realized how much that I didn't know about My Digital Studio when it came time to make a card that looked "real". I spent a lot of time watching videos - there are great starting videos on Stampin' Up's official My Digital Studio website. Another amazing resource is Stamp with Heather - she has done two full video classes full of tips and techniques.
So after a lot of videos and even more trial and error, I came up with this...
Enough chatter from me...I have everything printed and ready to go - but I still have a few hours of putting them all together!!
- Stamps: Stampin' Up My Digital Studio Crosses of Hope
- Paper and Ink: My Digital Studio Night of Navy (although I elected not to print at the highest possible quality to conserve a little ink, so it didn't print out as dark as a typical Night of Navy)
- Accessories: Stampin' Up Silver Glitter Paper, Marvy Uchida button punch, misc gem
Technostamper is the fun challenge that lets me add the entries right here on my blog. Here is what everyone else has done with this sketch...
