My Digital Studio "Hybrid" Card

We attended a birthday party this weekend for one of Timothy's good friends, and I wanted to create a special card -- I had something special in mind, and decided to create a card with some hand stamped elements and some printed from My Digital Studio!  Here's what I made:





The card base was created by cutting an 5.5 x 8.5 inch folded piece of Tempting Turquoise card stock with the Scallop Square Big Shot die. The clouds layer was created in My Digital Studio using the Sunny Day cloud elements, and the greetings on the card front and inside were also created in My Digital Studio and printed from my home printer (they printed well -- not quite as crisp or as well color-coordinated as something printed from Stampin' Up!'s professional services, but definitely good enough for my purposes!)  Here's a close up of the front greeting:

 

The rocket image is from the Pun Fun stamp set.  I drew the clouds coming out the bottom with my water color pencils, and used those and a blender pen to color the rest of the image as well.  The little yellow stars were die cut using the Stampin' Up! Beary Boy sizzlit from Stampin' Up!'s Build a Bear line.  I added the gold outline on the stars, as well as the dots and highlights on the rocket with my Zig Painty pen.

 

I stamped some alien images inside the card, using the Greetings Earthling set and Tempting Turquoise classic ink.



I love how I was able to use Digital Studio to supplement the stamp sets and designer papers I have on hand and still create a handmade card!!!
