ATC LNS Challenge

This week's LNS challenge was to create an ATC - which is a 2-1/2" x 3-1/1" card front that you would use for trading and card designs.  I thought I would try these colors together, Marina Mist, Melon Mambo and Wild Wasabi - they are part of the new Brights color collection.  I used the new Square Lattice Embossing Folder for the background.  The stamp set I used is one of the current hostess sets from the Summer mini catalog, Punched Posies.  Here's the details:

Stamps: Punched Posies
Inks: Wild Wasabi, Melon Mambo, Marina Mist
Papers: Whisper White, Melon Mambo
Accessories: Square Lattice EF, Big Shot, Circle Scallop Punch, Melon Mambo Ribbon, Brocade Blue Brad, Mini-Glue Dots, Dimensionals, Scissors

Soul Scrapper Challenge

I joined the group, Soul Scrappers, and this is a digital 12x12 scrapbook page I created using my MDS (My Digital Studio) for this week's challenge.  I am in awe of how easy it is to create not only pages, but cards, calendars and much more using this great software program!  Thanks for stopping by - I just got the new catty today, so I am off to slowly browse through it!  Have a great weekend!

My Digital Studio Birthday Card

I have been seeing these beautiful images on different blogs from the new downloads on the Stampin' Up! My Digital Studio.  Wow - love, love the downloads available on this computer program, and it's very easy to use!  This is probably the fastest card I have ever made and I think it's beautiful!  I just selected the background paper, added one of the many sayings available, printed and mounted on card stock!  This awesome software program just isn't for scrapbooking.  You can make various projects with it.  What to see what this baby can do?  Give me a call to schedule a time to come on over and take look for yourself!  Here's the details:

Papers: Rose Red, So Saffron, Whisper White
Accessories: Summertime Splendor - Bouquet download, MDS software, So Saffron ribbon, Mini Glue Dots
