My Digital Studio-New Downloads

It's Digital Tuesday.  You can check out the new digital downloads HERE. MDS 2 will be here in just a week.  The new software is unbelievable and you are going to love it.  I'm working with it currently and finding all the new bells and whistles so I can share them with you. 

Today I have two items to share.  First a digital layout from my Disney Album:

Kimberly Van Diepen stampin up demo



This layout used the (#130078) AHOY, MATEY ENSEMBLEYou may remember when we had this as a kit to purchase a few years ago.  This is a great download to use for little boy birthday parties and then make an album of the fun party.  You know with my love for Johnny I had to have it. <sigh>

Next up is another swap card.

*Start this card with Very Vanilla cardstock.  Using the Basic Black Craft pad, roll the Etruscan Elegance Jumbo Wheel in the center of the card.  Pour Clear Embossing Powder over it and heat.

*Stamp the Fence using Basic Black Craft Pad and pour Clear embossing powder over and heat. Use the Labels Collection Framelits Die on page 191 to die cut. 

*Emboss the Trick or Treat sentiment the same way as previous onto Tangerine Tango cardstock and make a banner to go across the fence.  Adhere this using an Antique Brad. 

*Cut three strips of Howlstooth & Scaringbone (also available as an MDS download) DSP and make them into banners.  Hang from the top of the Very Vanilla cardstock.  Adhere the Embossed Label Framelit using dimensionals. Round the bottom right corner. 


Although embossing takes a little more time it's always a WOW factor on any card you use it on. 

I hope you are having a spectacular day.

I used the Top Note Die Cut to make the cool little medallion in the center of the card.  You can view this post to see a few more details on how to make this.  I used the From the Crypt stamp set again and I love this image.  It’s beautiful yet there are spiders in it.  WOW.  I used White Craft ink on the Basic Black and I think has a stunning look. Almost looks like DSP!  For the teeny sentiment, I used Teeny Tiny Wishes. 


Have a fabulous week!

Halloween Beauties!
