Creative Cuts

I spent some time searching images in My Digital Studio to use for a card idea that was circling in my head.  This is not the idea!  But it was such a pretty cut – that I decided to go with it.  This image is from Creative Elements – available as a download or a stamp set.  I exported the image from MDS into my ECal software, enlarged it, and cut it out of Crumb Cake cardstock.  I have to say that what was left behind on my cutting mat was as beautiful as the image itself and I will have to try it again using the negative.  I stamped the cardstock with the Hardwood background stamp and layered it over a piece of Afternoon Picnic Designer Series paper. 

Stamp Set – Express Yourself, Hardwood, MDS Creative Elements
Cardstock – Crumb Cake, Afternoon Picnic
Ink – Chocolate Chip
Etc – Large pearl, ecutter

I still have that “other” idea swimming in my head – I just got distracted!  Hugs, Fran

  1. Very pretty…anxious to see what you do with the cut out parts!

  2. Well Fran, I don’t have MDS or ecutter but I do have a gorgeous Butterfly die from Serendipity stamps that would work beautifully to make this gorgeous card. I also have the Wood Work stamp, it came last week and I haven’t even gotten it out of the case. You just gave me this awesome and beautiful idea for using both of this items. Thank you so much for the inspiration.

  3. I am always glad to enable  help another stamper  Hugs, Fran
