A quick card using My Digital Studio

I am stopping by with a quick Christmas card using our MDS program.  I have had an amazing week away with friends along the Murray River, but now its back home to work for my husband and I  and back to school for my son.
Here is a photo of our beautiful nights - love our river.

And yep did a spot of fishing on my sons line lol, pity all I caught were carp (can't eat carp and can't throw them back into the river as they are a pest)

anyway, onto my quick card :)

this whole card was created in My Digital Studio, some items were from Stampin' Up! downloads and some were from "Granny Enchanted's" Blog.

Something a little different and a fun santa too.

A lost lagoon kinda christmas.

I love lost lagoon, if you haven't noticed by all the cards I have used it with lately lol, but this card is a very simplified version of a card I saw here

When I am so pressed for time as I am lately, CASEING is where I turn when I am short on inspiration :)

a punch art snowman...

I found this card on pinterest, but here is the link to the lady who created it with a list of punches and a tutorial, so cool - see HERE:

Was no real need to change the card, loved it the way this lady created it :)

I don't own the broom die which was used so I used our  flower punch and just altered the top with scissors to get the broom shape and highlighted it with white gel pen.

I embossed a layer of white background with the new star embossing folder, we also used the apothercary die for the vellum shapes, and added some silver stars.

A quick and easy My Digital Studio layout.

Its been a long time between layouts... today I created one as I was in the mood using My Digital Studio, the only thing left is to pop the photo into the slot left there, but haven'd decided whether to put a digital one in or an actual printed photo, but I loved the layout.

All the items in the layout below can be purchased in my online store below in the digital download section.  Have a browse in there there are some amazing items.

Corsets, Corsets and more corsets....

 Recently I made some hens night invitations for my friend,  They were fun but challenging to make! 

I used the stamp set Everything Eleanor on the front of the corset and heat embossed them.
I also used our now retired cropadile to pop holes into the front for the ribbon to be laced up.

Heres a few of them together.
Basic Black cardstock, retired ribbon - but it went so perfectly with the invitation.

Inside I used pink pirouette cardstock for lining the corset inside.  I then used our fabulous vellum cardstock for the invitation writing which was printed on the printer.
 Like I said fun to make, but challenging.
The SVG file was found online HERE
