Card/Tag: Gingerbread Man

This cute 3″ x 3″ card was very fun to create.  It reminded me a lot of decorating cookies as a child, which I cannot wait to do with my daughter when she is old enough!

The card base is created with Real Red cardstock, and a 1″ strip of Red Glimmer Paper is adhered to the front.  Separately, the Gingerbread man is stamped in Crumb Cake on Whisper White cardstock.  Then, using the Holiday Collection Framelits Dies and the Big Shot, the Gingerbread man is cut out.  Then, Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details are added to the Gingerbread man, just as if you were decorating a real cookie!  I think this would make a great little card, or even a tag on the outside of a Christmas gift.

Supplies Used:

Stamp Sets:

Scentsational Season (121026 w, 121190 c)


Real Red Cardstock (102482)

Whisper White Cardstock (100730)

Red Glimmer Paper (121790)


Crumb Cake (126975)


Holiday Collection Framelits Dies (127814)

Big Shot (113439)

Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details (125585)

Card: Fall Leaves

One of the other cards we made during our October Stamp Club meeting was this beautiful Autumn card, which I am very proud of!  I love the colors and simplicity of creating this card.

The base of this card is created using Old Olive cardstock (100702).  I then layered 5.25″ x 4″ Very Vanilla cardstock (101650) on top of that, then 5″ x 3.75″ Rich Razzleberry cardstock (115316).  The leaves are from the Holiday stamp set Wonderfall (128084 w, 128087 c), in Rich Razzleberry (126950), Pumpkin Pie (126945) and Old Olive (126953) on Very Vanilla Cardstock, cut to 4.75″ x 3.5″.

Ghoulish Googlies Treats

Last night was our first Stamp Club meeting with the current group of 6 wonderful ladies, and one of the three projects we created were these adorable Halloween trick-or-treat bags.
These were created using the Ghoulish Googlies Bundle (129852 w, 129853 c), found on page 27 of the Holiday Catalog.  This bundle is a great deal, saving you 15% off the price of the Googly Ghouls Stamp Set and Goulish Googlies Designer Printed Kit.

This kit comes with everything you see here, including the “Googlies” eyes, except I provided Stampin’ Write markers in Old Olive (100079), Real Red (100052) and Daffodil Delight (119677) to color in the witch.

Installing MDS2 Trial

If you already have the original version of My Digital Studio and want to give the MDS 2 Trial a shot, there are some tricks to installing it depending on your situation. In a nutshell, it makes things easiest to make sure to buy the software before the 30-day trial period is over. Make sure to pass this info along to your friends who want to try out MDS 2.

If you have the original My Digital Studio software and would like to try the MDS 2 Trial, you have a couple of options for installing the trial software:

  1. Save over My Digital Studio software. You can install MDS 2 Trial directly over your original My Digital Studio program. This will allow you to access all the downloads you have already purchased for My Digital Studio in your MDS 2 Trial program without having to re-download any of your digital content. Use this option if you are confident that you will purchase the MDS 2 software before the end of the trial.
  2. Save in a new location. Or, you can install MDS 2 Trial in a different location on your computer. If you do this, you will have to download any of your previously purchased My Digital Studio content into your new MDS 2 (if you want to use that content). The plus side is that if you install the MDS 2 Trial in a different location, it will not alter your original My Digital Studio program. So, after the 30-day trial, if you use your original My Digital Studio software, you will still have access to all of your original downloads without re-downloading.

You can save the trial software in a different location by giving it a different name when you see this screen during the installation process:

Windows: Mac:

If you purchase downloads during the 30-day trial period, they will be added to your most recently installed software, which is the MDS 2 Trial. After the trial period is over, you may need to re-download that content depending on whether or not you purchase the software and where you save it.

This is important! No matter how you download the trial, if you are going to buy the MDS 2 software, we strongly recommend purchasing it before your trial period has expired. When you launch the software after the 30 day trial period is over, you will be prompted to enter a product key. You will not be able to use the software again until you have entered a product key that you get when you purchase MDS 2 or MDS 2+.

So, if you installed the MDS 2 Trial over your original My Digital Studio software (option 1 above) and you wait until after the 30 days are over, you will have to re-download and install all your purchased digital content in order to use it in your original My Digital Studio software. Any downloads purchased during the trial period will also have to be re-downloaded. Also, since you replaced your original software, if you decide not to purchase MDS 2, you will have to reinstall the software too.

If you installed the MDS 2 Trial in a different place on your computer (option 2 above) and you wait until after the 30 days are over, any downloads purchased and installed during the trial period will have to be reinstalled. Your original My Digital Studio software will remain exactly the same, and you won’t have to reinstall it.

During the 30-day trial period, if you decide to purchase the software, you can follow the options listed above to save the permanent software. If you save it over your original My Digital Studio software, you will not need to re-download your purchased downloads; however, if you save it in a new location, you will need to add those downloads to the new MDS 2 software. If you purchase the upgrade or MDS 2, all you’ll have to do is enter the product key. If you purchase MDS 2+, then you’ll want to follow the instructions above so that all of the new content is installed. Keep in mind that our new SVG stamp brush sets will not work in the original My Digital Studio software.

NEW! Single Stamps!

This is SO awesome!  Stampin’ Up! is offering a few of their stamp sets as single stamps!  I’m so excited about this 🙂

  • You can find the stamp item numbers on the flyers.
  • These won’t be sent to you in our typical cases or packaging; they’ll be packaged in cello bags. If you’d like a case for your stamp, you can buy our Clear-Mount Stamp Cases that come in packs of four (item 119105).
  • This offer is available for clear-mount stamps only.
  • The stamps won’t come with a Clear-Mount Block, and you’ll need to buy a block separately if you don’t already have one. The recommended block sizes can be found on the flyers.
  • There’s no limit on how many pieces you can buy.
  • This offer is not available in Quebec.
  • Remember that this is a pilot program, so take advantage of it while you can!
