SALE-A-BRATION Elephant Card

This week, SUO Challenges #62 is all about using your new 'toys' and the biggest new thing for me has been to explore the Digital Software that Stampin' Up! have only recently introduced into Australia.  We don't have My Digital Studio yet but hopefully that won't be far away.

The SAB pre-order gave me an opportunity to get the One Big SALE-A-BRATION 2013 Digital Disc for free so I could get a glimpse into MDS and see what all the fuss was about.  I now know and I'm excited at the possibilities!

Anyway, onto my card ... this is an enlarged computer print out of the digital elephant stamp from the set called 'Patterned Occasions'.  A big thanks to my friend, Lynne, who helped me manoeuvre my way around my new graphics program (MTC) so I could finish making this elephant shaped card.  



 
SAB Elephant Card for SUO # 68

The elephant has been hand cut and then embellished with some Tangerine Tango ribbon and a matching button.  He was printed out in Island Indigo and Pool Party 'Ink' on Whisper White card stock.  The RGB printed colour for 'Island Indigo' looks more like 'Pacific Point'.  Oh well, he's still cute.


I added some White Baker's Twine to the button and gave him a 'Googly' Eye.  The 'baby' sentiment is from the Tiny Tags stamp set and cut out with the matching punch.


The envelope has been stamped with the clear mount elephant stamp from the Patterned Occasions Stamp Set, in matching colours.




All this technical stuff was a bit of a steep learning curve for me but a lot of fun and I'm looking forward to the release of My Digital Studio in Australia..

There aren't many sleeps left until SALE-A-BRATION begins on January 22nd and there are heaps of free goodies on offer this year.  Woo hoo!

Until then, happy stamping,
