Wall Decor

I had a request to recreate a Pinterest-pinned creation by a friend. She pretty much wanted an exact duplicate of the pretty thing she found. I opened up MDS2 & went to work creating something as close to the original as I could. I created it on a custom project size of 16x20 so I would be sure that the print resolution would be the best it could be. I used MDS stamps and punches, and scoured the internet for the perfect free fonts (I love that we can use any font we choose to download with MDS).
I had it printed at a local photo developer as a 16x20 poster print.
I painted the edges of the 16x20 canvas black and used Mod Podge to attach the photograph. It came out as beautiful as I had hoped! :) In fact, it looked so good that I had two other people request their own personalized canvas wall decor.


All it took was a couple of color, type, and sizing changes to the original file in MDS & voila!








I really have a blast creating and recreating stuff using MDS2! It is such an easy and fun program to use. Have you tried it yet? If not...what are you waiting for?
You can try it for FREE for 30 days. See details here in my SU store.

Pigs are Flying!

.....and I am SUPER EXCITED about it! 
Stampin' Up! is offering true CLEAR stamps!

I say "pigs are flying" because Stampin' up! has always been very true to the rubber (because of the high quality of the impression it leaves). However, they have been researching and they have searched out the best quality material to use for this product.

What makes them so great?

  • They're entirely transparent for perfect placement every time! 
  • They are durable. The photopolymer material is designed to last. 
  • Can you say sticky? (Don't worry; in a good way.) These stamps stick amazingly well to our clear blocks.
  • They're age tested. They won't yellow or cloud up over time. 
  • They use FDA, food-safe material. How far can you stretch your stamping creativity? 
  • We could go on, but we'll let you try them for yourself.

They are clearly a great choice.


 Here are the images offered in this first set, called Designer Typeset:
Check out the PDF flyer for more information here.
Find them in my SU! store here.

I'm ordering mine today! :) I can't wait to play with them!
