February Club Card

Hi Everyone,  It's Wednesday and you know what that means...slide into the weekend.

My share today is the final project for the February Club coming up this Friday.  If you would like to join us, contact me HERE and I will give you the details.  It's fun and I offer different techniques to get you on your way to happy stamping and making cards.  

I used My Digital Studio to print 2 umbrellas  from the Rue De Fleur digital stamp set using Concord Crush colour. 
With the first umbrella, I cut the card stock so that the umbrella ended up in the middle and the second umbrella, I cut out and used dimensionals to give the umbrella a 3-D look.  I used pastels to colour the lace along the bottom, attached one of the new larger peals to the top and a smaller pearl on the umbrella handle.
If you want to try this technique and don't have the My Digital Studio software, you are in luck.

Stampin' Up! has a FREE Trial offer for My Digital Studio going on right now.  Check out my Free Trial  page to find out the details and you can be on  your way to creating Hybrid cards (hybrid cards are those that combine digital and crafting supplies. 

This offer is good only until the end of February.
