Ornament Keepsakes, Digitally Speaking

 Good Sunday Morning, Crafters!

So, I want to know, “What are you doing with  YOUR digital downloads?”.  Sunday’s confession:  I did not purchase last year’s Ornament Keepsakes and matching Holiday Ornament framelits (#127816, $24.95) .  However, the stamp set is still available (wood mount #128048, $34.95 or clear mount #128051, $25.95)  if you want to make this year’s Christmas cards with it!

Finally, I decided to purchase it as a digital download (#131360, $6.95) to use with My Digital Studio (MDS).

Amanda's Ornaments-001 I just made a sample Christmas card for a friend.  I wanted to show her how quickly she can digitally design a beautiful Christmas card….and print it off as many times as she needs!

What is so special about this is I wanted to show her how MDS can work with her Cameo electronic cutter (e-cutter).  Check back Wednesday to see the results!:)

The design in My Digital Studio:

-Open the software and develop a custom sized project at 8-1/2 x 11″.

-Go to Background Paper and fill it with Cherry Cobbler.

-Go to Punches: pick and apply a square punch.  Right click to edit object to 1.625 x 3″ (1-5/8 x 3). Copy it so you have 2 objects.  Then fill one with Crumb Cake cardstock. (to create the top left image) and the other with Early Espresso. (For this one, choose your favorite stamp and apply it, then recolor using the Watermark choice.

-Again to punches to pick and apply a circle punch.  Right click to edit to .5″ (1/2″) and fill it with Very Vanilla cardstock.  Copy it 2 times.

-To line up the circles,  hold down the Control Button and left click each circle to choose it.  Once all 3 circles are highlighted, click the “align” button, then choose “top”.  While they are still highlighted, right click and choose “group”.  You can then copy this group to fill your object (punch and paper).  I also used the half circle punch too!

-The bottom image is a square punch, edited to 1.875  x  3.5 (1-7/8 x 3.5)…filled with Crumb Cake cardstock.  Stamps are re-colored in Early Espresso.

Tricks of the Trade:  If your stamped image falls outside lines of the desired object, simply pick and apply a square punch…and fill it with cardstock colored the same as your background paper. (in this case, I edited a square punch to be 1/2 x 4″ and colored it Cherry Cobbler…and moved it on top of the Season Greetings image.  This allowed my overlapping stamped image to be covered up!:)

    a great tutorial; thanks for sharing……..really, MDS *still* makes me nervous!

    • Stamping Contact says:

      Don’t be nervous, my friend! Give it a try…30 day free trial is great because it allows you to play with it at no cost. And you can even print your projects, too. (some free design software won’t let you print your projects…they usually only let you “play”.) is a great resource from Stampin’ Up!:)
