stillADDinktive-Spot That Stamp Set!

Hi Blog Readers! Today is Week 2 at "stilladdINKtive" and this week we have our "Spot that Stamp Set" which is Forever Young. I must tell you that I do not own this stamp set. So how did I get to participate this week? Quite simple.....I used My Digital Studio and printed my image in brown ink on Very Vanilla Cardstock. I also printed the little frame you see below and hand-cut:

Can  you tell that this is not a stamped image? I bet not! I used my 1" Circle Punch and placed it over my tree and sponged around it using Calypso Coral Ink and a Sponge Dauber. I then removed my circle and very lightly sponged the inside just to give it slight color:

Once I had my frame all cut out, I stamped the sentiment from the Up, Up and Away Stamp Set by using my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig and Calypso Coral Ink. I layered the frame over Chocolate Chip Cardstock cut with the Curly Label Punch. The frame fit perfectly using Stampin' Dimensionals to glue it in place. Here are the supplies I used:

 Stampin' Up! Supplies:
  • Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip
  • Inks: Chocolate Chip, Calypso Coral, Personal Printer
  • Stamps: My Digital Studio Forever Young, Up, Up and Away
  • Tools: Curly Label Punch, Paper Snips, Stampin' Dimensionals, Punch Pack (flower), 1" Circle Punch, Sponge Daubers, Multipurpose Glue
  • Accessories: Pearl Jewels, 3/8" Calypso Coral Ruffled Ribbon, Delicate Details Lace Tape

  1. This is beautiful Debbie. I couldn't tell that it wasn't a "real" stamp. We don't have MDS yet and I'm very envious, it would be a fantastic resource to have! I love the colours you've used and your sponging and sentiment are wonderful too.

  2. I'm amazed at MDS and how versatile it is. This card is stunning. I love the sponged moon and the sentiment is perfect for the card. I have a couple of MDS discs but still doing research about what would be best to use for the svg files as we don't yet have MDS.

  3. What a wonderful sentiment to go with that image! It does feel like you're shooting for the moon when you swing high. Great card, Debbie!

  4. Sooo wonderful! I love this card!

  5. This is very pretty and I would not have guessed it was mainly created via MDS. I love how you embellished it....makes it very sweet!

  6. This is a beautiful card, Debbie. The rich coral background & the sponged moon are fabulous & I wouldn't have guessed the secret of your image. Love the sweet floral embellies too. :)

  7. Now why didn't I think of using MDS?! Great idea and you made a beautiful card with it!

  8. This is really beautiful, Debbie - and no, you can't tell the image is not stamped! I love the colours you've used on your card.

  9. Beautiful card! I really need to remember to use MDS in this format as well! An endless supply of stamps and paper!!
