Halloween Card Using My Digital Studio 2 (Stampin' Up!)
Since this whole week has been hot, I'm focusing today on cooler weather and Halloween. I used quite a bit of tricks to create this cute Halloween card. The cat was facing right, so I copied and flipped him over to face left also. The pumpkin was black so I changed him to Pumpkin Pie. The eyes and mouth are a circle punch of daffodil yellow moved backward - doesn't it look like it is has a candle inside. The Happy Halloween was a black digital stamp that I used the color change for to create the two colors. The large bat didn't have any eyes, so I used small digital pearls to create them. I think they look rather spooky and perfect for this card. The background was a large 12 x 12 scrapbook page (digital), I used only the upper left hand portion by cropping it out. It has the neatest looking texture.
I have samples on my blog all this week for My Digital Studio 2. There are also links to the videos and forums. Take a moment to go back and look.
I hope many of you will decide to try My Digital Studio 2 also. I doubt that I will ever give up my traditional stamping, but this way is sure fun too.
