Last night, as I was thinking of heading to bed, I got sucked into My Digital Studio, playing with the FREE downloads from Stampin' Up!  I could hardly hold my eyes open, but I was having too much fun.  This card features a large Scallop Square punch, filled with one of the "Beau Chateau" designer paper patterns, and I used a different pattern for the Curly Label shape which features an image from the "Christmas Lodge" stamp set.  Notice the digital tape that appears to be holding the "memories" shape to the card?  That's from "Delightful Digital Tape," one of Stampin' Up!'s FREE downloads!  After the image was printed, I cut around the scallop edges, sponged them with Soft Suede ink, and then adhered the design to Soft Suede card stock, which was adhered to the Marina Mist card.  My second card features the Top Note shape filled with a pattern from the "Spice Cake" designer paper.  On top of this shape, I used a gorgeous image from "Day of Gratitude" stamp set, which I layered several times and used "drop-shadows" in Crumb Cake and Pool Party colors.  Notice the Pool Party ruffled ribbon?  It's from Stampin' Up!'s FREE "Delight in the Day" embellishment kit!  The sentiment on this card is from "Fundamental Phrases" stamp brush set, and the other digital items are the antique brad, jewelry tag punch, and More Mustard grosgrain ribbon.  Once this design was printed, I used the actual Sizzix Top Note die to cut it, sponged the edges with Soft Suede ink, adhered the die-cut layer to a piece of Very Vanilla card stock which was embossed with the Square Lattice embossing folder, and then adhered that layer to the More Mustard card.  What a quick, quick, quick card this was to make!  If I had been thinking clearly instead of working through sleepy eyes, I would have used a real antique brad instead of the digital one, but it's all good.  Are you having fun with the free downloads this weekend????
