Let’s face it, I love DSP and I love halloween so I went with my go to layout to showcase all the wonderful pieces of DSP are in this years Halloween Night #142022 DSP collection from Stampin Up. I stamped the eyes from the Jar of Haunts #142247 directly on the DSP and then made a jar of candy corn using the Jar of Haunts and the coordinating Everyday Jar Framelits #141490. This jarring set of Halloween images will fill you with all the spookiness of the season. To complete the paneled card, I added the sentiment is from the now retired Spooky Bingo Bits.
I wanted to try my hand at brayering a spooky Halloween card using the Stampin Up Woodland TIEF #139673. I added the birds and spooky eyes from the Among the Branches #139823 to randomly stamp the images on the trees to spooky it up a bit! To finish off, I added a piece of black satin ribbon and the sentiment from the now retired Spooky Bingo Bits stamp set.

I did not get the Spooky Bingo Bits stampset #123496when it first came out when Stampin Up introduced it a few years back. Boy did I miss out. The Spooky Bingo Bits set is 24 Halloween stamps and is the only Halloween set a person needs! Today’s card features what I call the “Inchy” layout because the images are stamped and then punched with the 1 ” square punch #124094 and then layered on a Postage Stamp #122344. The ribbon is the 1/2 ” striped ribbon #127837 from the Stampin Up Holiday catalog. Once I receive my order with the self sticking Googlies eyes, I might add them to this card to step it up.
If you love the Spooky Bingo set be sure to check out the Jolly Bingo Bits stampset #121187 for the Holidays. Both sets are available in the Stampin Up Annual catalog

Today’s cards I made using the new MDS2+ (My Digital Studio) software and how I used the freeform coloring tool to change the color of the various parts of the digital image. The ability to color the stamped images with such ease really makes digital card making a breeze. The freeform coloring tool is one of 75 enhancements that come with the new MDS 2 and MDS2+ software. I used the Spooky Bingo Bits digital download to create both of these cards and have sent them off for printing. That is truly what is so great with going digital just create the card once and upload to the Stampin Up printing service and print as many as you want. The come back from printing in about a week-10 days and come with envelopes. Yeah!
The full MSD 2+software is $79.95 and has over $500 worth of digital content. The full software is available via disc #130647 or via download #130646. The MDS 2 software (without the $500 worth of digital content) is available for $39.95 (disc: #130645 or download:#130644). If you already own MDS you can upgrade for $19.95). Finally if you want to try MDS2 for free contact me at email@example.com for details. Every Tuesday Stampin Up releases their new downloads available for purchase. Finally if that is not enough, Stampin Up has drastically reduced the cost of their printing services too so seriously there is no better time than now to go digital.
Today our mom would have been 80 years old and I must say that we still miss her dearly. Today’s card is one I made using the all new and I must say fabulous MDS2 (My Digital Studio)software. I have been an MDS user from the beginning but Stampin Up revamped the software and made over 75 enhancements to the original software and it is awesome. The full MSD 2+software is $79.95 and has over $500 worth of digital content. The full software is available via disc #130647 or via download #130646.

Today’s card is the quickest card I have ever made- handsdown! I used the card template and added the mummy from Spooky Bingo Bits #127616 digital download added a cherry cobbler punched heart and added the text. With the digital stamped images you are not limited to 1 size. I added the mummy and then resized him to fill most of the card. Once I receive the cards from the printing service I will make it a hybrid card by adding it to a black card base and adding a piece of bling or 2.
EEK Spiders! Yuk! For my Perfectly preserved workshop, I wanted to include a Halloween card. The Stampin Up Holiday Catalog features bundles priced to save you 15% when purchasing the items as a bundle. The Perfectly Preserved bundle #131022 includes the Perfectly Preserved stampset #126692 and the coordinating Cannerey framelit set #127822. I am definately not domestic enough to can anything but I love this bundle. For this card, I used the Howlstooth and Scaringbone DSP #126906 used the jar die and cut through the chevron DSP and then placed the embossed jar underneath with a spider from the Spooky Bingo Bits#123946, then used a piece of transparency to give the jar a real look (and to keep the spider in ;)! I topped the jar with a cute lid stamped from the perfectly preserved stampset, although I wish I would have used fabric, and tied it with a piece of non -SU string. I hand cut pennant banners and eeked it out with the new 1 1/4 inch scalloped circle to create the “card candy”. Stay tuned to see how I used the Perfectly Preserved bundle in the traditional sense.
