Digital scrapbooking and card making is all the rage now and StampinUp offers a product called My Digital Studio that includes lots of digital downloads of the designer paper. stamps, and embellishments (both retired and current) that we have grown to love. The software is easy to use and you can create cards, photo albums, calendars and scrapbook pages that you can print through Stampin Up and get a great quality product.
I love to create hybrid cards by using MDS to design my card fronts and then print the card fronts from StampinUp. When I need a quick card I grab the MDS card and then embellish the card with traditional elements thus creating a beautiful hybrid.
Here is a sample of one of my simple designs.
