You Are One Of A Kind


It’s Flashback Friday!

My project for this week’s release for McMahon Five Designs was created for my Grandson who will be 13 in September.   When I watch my grandson play his games on his iPod there are always funny little characters.  So today I chose the perfect digital image for him.  Its called Lil’ Monster Digital Stamp.  Having these images in my stash make it so easy to create that special Birthday Card.

My Project







Details: I chose the colored image because I love the colors and the convenience.  I used Paint Shop Pro (PSP) and the Silhouette Portrait to make my card.  And for some added touches I used a paper cutter and and one inch circle punch to add the colored strips and circles.

I created the front and inside of the card using PSP.  Then I took the digital image and opened it in the Silhouette.  There is an option called Print and Cut.  So using that option I printed the image using my printer.  And then I loaded the printed image into the Silhouette. I got a perfectly cut out image to lay on top of the  image on the card front for a  more dimensional look.  I also cut out a smaller version for the inside of the card.  I added some glitter to image to give it a little pizazz.

There are so many wonderful digital choices in the McMahon Five Designs Store.  Digital images hardly take up any room in your craft space.  You save them to your computer and use them when you need them.  I still like using stamps but working with digital images gives me the option to size them the way I want.  And having images already colored for you makes it so easy to get your project done quicker.  And if you like to color there are outline images included.    Gosh most of the work is done for you.

Please stop by the McMahon Five Designs Blog to see what the other Design Team members created.  I know it will truly inspire you.  Thank you for visiting my blog.
