Just Field Flowers

I was inspired by a card I found on Pinterest. Unfortunately, when I tried to find out who made it, I was unable to access the information. Any way, after deciding to make the card, it took me several days to complete it. Not because it's a difficult card to make. I just never had more than a few minutes to work on it at any given time. There's just a little bit of fussy cutting, but the end result makes it worth it.
Supplies: Stamps - Everything Eleanor, Field Flowers, Just Believe; Paper - Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Everyday Enchantment DSP (ret.); Ink - Calypso Coral, Champagne Mist, Crumb Cake, Garden Green; Jewels - Pearls

My Digital Studio - the beginnings

I'm traveling right now, so I don't have my card-making supplies. In an attempt to not go through withdrawals, I am playing around with MDS2. Stampin' Up! provided a free upgrade and I took advantage! I decided to start slowly and use some card challenges for inspiration only (I will not be submitting it). Aren't those kitties too cute?

Another Masculine Card

Lots of male birthdays in my family lately. Here is another card made for one of them. If the Natural Composition woodgrain DSP looks darker than usual, it is. Using a dauber, I rubbed Early Espresso onto it. I think it gives it a nice, rich tone.
Supplies: Stamp - In Wilderness (ret.); Paper - Always Artichoke, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso Core'Dinations, Natural Composition DSP; Ink - Early Espresso; Framelits - Labels Collection; Embossing Powder - Clear
