There is excitement in Houston today as the Houston Texans football team play their first playoff game this afternoon at Reliant Stadium! They are playing the Cincinnati Bengals. The Texans are a relatively new team, ten years old, and haven't made it to the playoffs….until now! So everyone is very excited and optimistic!
In honor of the Houston Texans, I made this spirit card in My Digital Studio, the Stampin' Up! software program for digital papercrafting. I made my own "designer paper" background by typing "Houston Texans" in a text box, changing the color to white, lowering the opacity, and copying and pasting the text box all over the page! Since I didn't have a football digital stamp, I was able to go to Stampin' Up! and order it online and have the download in seconds! Really cool!!
The big red circle is from a free download Stampin' Up! is offering on their Facebook page! If you scroll down through the posts and find it and take a short easy survey, you too can get this free download….it's more than the circle!! Go to the Stampin' Up! Facebook page HERE.
The football is actually a little tricky….it comes as just the black outline as you can see in the "motion" footballs being thrown! In order to add color digitally, you have to add punches that match the shape of the football, add color to them and then send them "behind" the football. Not hard, you just have to know to do that!
I can teach you all about My Digital Studio and direct you to even more resources as well as any other Stampin' Up! products….stamps, inks, papers, accessories, gifts and home decor items.
