The crew is sharing ideas for using the Stampin' Up! Serene Silhouettes stamp set in both its traditional and digital forms. It is always such fun to go through the hops to see the incredible creativity of the group! This is a very sophisticated stamp set and I'm confident we'll be seeing several very elegant projects.
No back to the whole "desperate times call for desperate measures" scenario...for this hop, I had to go digital as I do not own the physical stamp set. I've had a projects planned out in my mind for days and days. Today I went to implement the idea and had trouble downloading the MDS stamp brush set, however I was able to solve the technical glitch and get things going. So then I designed my project and went to print it. And I got nothing. Nothing at all. For some reason my computer and the printer are not communicating. And, I have no idea why.
So, I got thinking about my most favorite phone case and I decided to design a custom phone case using an image created in MDS:
Isn't it sweet?
Here's what I did...
- Designed a file in MDS that features this Wildflower silhouette from the Serene Silhouettes stamp set and a background of Calypso Coral
- Exported the design as a JPEG
- Went to Shutterfly
- Uploaded the photo
- Added my name
- And previewed my case (the preview is what you see above)
I'm really loving it and just may have to add this case to my holiday wish list! Or perhaps order one for a friend!
Using a similar procedure to what I described above, I also designed a sleek iPad case with the tree and bird silhouette:
MDS gives you so many possibilities! I've used it the past couple years for holiday cards and printed those directly through the Stampin' Up! print services vendor. While the vendor changed over the summer and I have yet to print, I am confident that the quality will be wonderful.
While this is not a sponsored post at all, I will say that I have used Shutterfly in the past for mugs and a a phone case and was very pleased with the results! And, again, it was Shutterfly that I used to bring these creations to life!
For those who are curious, the font on the cases is Carolyna Pro Black. I am loving the font...how about you?
Be sure to hop along and see what the Crew has created for you!
Enjoy a little creativity today!
