MDS Blog Hop--New Discovery

Welcome to this week's MDS Blog Hop!  The theme this week is basically whatever we are working on or something we've discovered using My Digital Studio 2.  So, I've done a little of both!

Background, Natural Composition overlay; Snowflakes, Old St. Nick stamp brush; "Merry", Simple Letters punch; Hip and Handsome overlays stamp cropped with washi tape punch shape; Jingle Bell, Jolly Bingo Bits stamp brush; Freeform line stitching.

I grabbed our photo from Christmas and as I was adding a few embellishments I thought I would try a few new things.  First, I used the punch editor and created my own washi tape shape.  That allowed me to choose a background stamp and then crop it using my washi tape punch.  Fun, eh?  Then, I saw a cute title on a scrapbook page that had stitching on it, and I thought that I could try to replicate the look with the freeform line tool--it worked!  I takes a little bit of time and some adjusting, but I like the end result.  I finished it off with a woven background and some snowflakes.  I hope you enjoy the rest of the blog hop!  Have fun!


Make sure you check out the video on how I created the faux washi tape and added the stitching on the letters!
