Meg’s MDS Minute: How to Color Your Stamps

Last evening was my monthly Laptops & Lattes class, and we created a fun card using My Digital Studio 2 (check out the free 30-day trial).  When I teach an MDS Class, my favorite method is to start with a pre-made card and re-create it in MDS.  That way we can focus on using the program, rather than have to think about the ‘art’ at the same time.

So this month’s card came from my basket of swaps, and it was created in ‘real’ card stock by my friend Jill Hilliard.  She used the Up, Up & Away stamp set, but we modified it a bit to feature the digital Adventure Awaits stamp set that is included with MDS2.

The balloons are colored with two different colors — it’s a new feature of MDS2!  If you have MDS and want to try an update, you can download a free 30 day trial of MDS2 and decide if you’d like to upgrade your program.  I have a list of your options on my blog here.

Here’s a video tutorial on coloring your digital stamps:


The inside of the card has both panels colored – you can see how that will look in the ‘check project’ tool.

You can check out some of the past MDS projects on my blog.  And even with the fun new features, you’ll be able to continue using my step-by-step MDS Tutorials (free on my blog!), both Video and PDF.

Happy Stamping!
