In this hybrid card, I cut out the Tweet Leaves image with the Autumn Accents Die to create a sweet Thank You Card. It will easily work as an All Occasions Card as well, either by changing the sentiment, or leaving it off the front and stamping it in the inside of the card. I posted another card using Tweet Leaves earlier this week.
In order to cut the image with the Autumn Accents Die, I had to use a mirror image of the original stamp in My Digital Studio. If you use the non-digital stamp, you need to cut the leaf first, then stamp it, using the Stamp-a-ma-jig to position the image so it fits in the cut-out. For some reason, the die cuts are backwards from the stamps they're supposed to coordinate with.
If you haven't tried MDS 2 (the new version of My Digital Studio), then you're going to love this new feature: Coloring stamps with more than one color. Tweet Leaves is a really fun stamp for this technique, because you can use lots of different colors for a bright and whimsical focal point.
Remember, you can try the 30 day FREE Trial of MDS 2. If you want to keep creating digitally, then you can purchase the program at the end of 30 days, without losing any of your projects or extra content you downloaded.
I'm working on a video to show you how to get the mirror image and do the coloring technique in MDS 2. Be sure to check back in a day or two so you can see how easy and fun it is!
