Playing with My Digital Studio

This is so much fun! No way this would ever replace traditional hands on stamping or scrap booking for me, but I am having a ball playing with my new toy software.
Look what I did today:

Look familiar?
This was so easy to do. All I did was was make a copy of the card I made yesterday by clicking "save as" under the File menu in MDS. Then I opened the copy (keeping my original nice & safe in it's file). I then edited the copy by deleting the sentiment rub-on, adding the picture of Tippy, fussed with the Not Quite Navy layer behind the photo of Tippy for about a second or two so that it fit behind the photo better, and moved the snowflakes around a little. I deleted one of the original snowflakes, and then made a copy of the smaller one by right clicking it and then choosing copy from the drop down box.

At this point I could have been done, but I decided I wanted to change the red color on my card from the original Riding Hood Red to the brighter Real Red. For the scallop square layer all I had to do was click on it and then change the color. For the ribbon, the ribbon knot, and the brads, I did have to delete them off the card and then re-choose the embellishments in Real Red, but it went really fast. Especially since I had already created the same design, I knew exactly what I wanted to add, and where I wanted to add it, so it only took another minute or two.

I am particularly tickled about the fact that I can create a card, and then go back and change it up just a little without having to re-create an entirely new card.
** I do want to mention that I did not lock anything in on my original card, and if I had, I'm not sure if I would have been able to do this. I am still learning, but as I do, I will share with you what I learn.

Have a great day!
