My Digital Studio is my “go-to” for creating scrapbook pages. It doesn’t take me long at all to create pages I love. For some reason though, when creating cards, I usually grab my rubber stamps and paper. When asked to create three different types of cards in MDS, I was determined to reach outside of my creative comfort zone!

First, I created a card using my e-cutter with MDS. I’ve always loved the look of fun-shaped cards and knew I wanted to try making one with my e-cutter.

This card was pretty easy to create. I used punches from MDS to create the cupcake top, bottom, stripes, and hearts. I was able to mirror the image in the e-cutter software so that I could cut out the base of the card as one piece. Then I added another layer for the cupcake top--the sprinkles and stripes. Pretty simple, but pretty cute!


Next, I created a hybrid card:

I have always loved the Designer Series Paper in the World Traveler Photobook Template. I thought the grungy, masculine look of this paper would be perfect for a Father’s Day card. I used MDS to create all of the different elements of my card. I filled punches with Designer Series Paper and created my sentiment with some added stitching. I printed and cut out each piece for the card--I used my Framelits dies to cut out the hearts.Then I added a layer of cardstock, some Linen Thread, some Stampin’ Dimensionals, and a brad. This was so fun to put together!

Lastly, I created an all digi card in MDS:

I’ve been anxious to play with some of the watercolor stamps recently released. I started this card without a plan in mind . . . but I’m happy with how it turned out! As you can see, I used the same stamp repeatedly. I played with the colors, the crop tool, and the layering until I was happy with the effect. I think I’ll go back and create a few more like this by changing the sentiment. It’s always nice to have thank you, thinking of you, and happy birthday cards on hand!

I love getting a jump-start on my handmade cards for the year! This year, I’m super excited about the endless possibilities with MDS! (I just hope my rubber stamps don’t get too dusty!)

Super cute Cori! Just now dabbing into MDS and your card stood out to me, nice job!

Thanks, Cori for answering my question. I really, really love your watercolor card. The other cards are great too. I got an e-cutter from my husband at Christmas and am looking forward to using it with MDS.

Susan, it's Wash 5.  I cropped one of the ends to give it the straight edge.  And then I re-cropped a few more so they varied in lengths.  Hope this helps!  :)

What stamp did you use for the watercolor stripes, Cori? I downloaded the Beautiful Today class but can't figure out which item you used that has that specific end to the color washes.
