MDS Hybrid Graffiti Card

Hello... sorry I've been MIA - I've been super busy with work and our annual holiday bazaar I haven't had much time to do much of anything else. Anyhoo, today I have two shares for you. I used Stampin' Up!s My Digital Studio to create both cards - but added traditional card making elements - so I call them "hybrid" cards since they are both blended together.
I was a presenter at this years' Fall Stamparama that my upline organizes. It's an awesome full day stamping event. I did a presentation on "Subway Art", or it has also been referred to as "Graffiti" and "Typography". Whatever you call it - it's a pretty cool technique!! Using MDS, I just opened a blank document (8-1/2" X 11") and chose a square punch and enlarged it to the size I wanted. You want to choose a common theme - for the first one I was making an anniversary card... so I chose digital stamps that fit the theme appropriately. Stamps such as Love, celebrate, Me + you. I also added some of my own - which is easy to do in MDS by adding a text box. This type of software makes this type of project really easy since you can re-size and adjust your text, font to fit your desired shape.

For this next one I made a "Friend" card... so every stamp is related to that theme. The great thing about this technique is it is a stand-out! Meaning, you don't need much else to make your card a one-of-a-kind. There are so many possibilities for this fun technique, I made a whole bunch - I'll try to share some soon! Have a super day :)
