MDS by Stampn' Up!

I have just recently begun experimenting with Stampin' Up!s MDS digital studio and have been very impressed.  I am by no means going to end up scrapbooking all online or making online only projects anytime soon. But creating scrapbook pages and gifts with MDS printed accents has been a success. 

The following projects that have been highlighted in my blog recently did use MDS elements.

The projects were all created with traditional Stampin' Up! supplies with the addition of MDS elements created using the digital download of the stamp set: Starburst Sayings:

When you order a digital stamp set for MDS they contain all the same elements as the wood/clear sets.  Once you order, a link is provided to you for downloading your stamp set immediately.  This is then added to the great assortment that already comes with the initial MDS program.  The initial download includes:

* Full access to the software and design tools to create cards, photobooks, calendars, and more
* The chance to buy additional content
* Ability to order your projects from our professional print services

I was so excited to see how much came with the original download and love that it is only $19.95!  Also when you purchase the digital stamp sets they are at a much lower cost than the traditional stamps.  For example the Starburst Sayings Digital Stamp set can be purchased for $4.95 while the wood/clear sets are $25.95/$18.95.

I will never give up hand stamping my images but love the MDS also! Each has a place in the creative process. As you can see from the pictures, the colors matched wonderfully to the cardstock & inks used. The images are crisp and were easily cutout on the bigshot. And I had them right away and could print them on my own printer.

Stampin' Up! is also always working on new digital items. The website announces new digital downloads every month!  And the items are never removed or retired! 

Here are the links to look up more info on MDS or to place an order. Contact me if you have any questions or want ideas on how to use MDS in your crafting.
