Fifty Shades of Cardstock

Just a small "commercial break" for some silliness. Some stamping friends of mine have been sharing a photo on Facebook that looks like a mock-up of a tshirt. It's titled "Fifty Shades of Cardstock", which is a take-off on the Fifty Shades of Grey books. But we actually do have 50 different colors of card stock in our current Stampin' Up! catalog, so it's a pretty amusing twist. A friend of mine (Hi Blythe!) really wanted to have the shirt, but it seems to only exist as a gag graphic. I thought it would be cool, but only if it really had all the Stampin' Up! colors. So, I spent hours this afternoon creating my version. I used the Edit Shape feature to alter a punch in My Digital Studio, and stacked 50 sheets of card stock, filling each punch with a different Stampin' Up! color.

Then, I actually used some Photoshop magic (literally, the Magic Extractor) to make the background of the digital art transparent. After that, I uploaded it to a print-on-demand site, and you can now find Stampin' Up!'s Fifty Shades of Cardstock on various items in my shop here:

If you order from the shop, please use care as there are some colors of items showing up that I actually deselected, because the artwork did not show up well on them. I have a light version and a dark version of the art, but you can only choose one version of the art for each product, and sometimes that just doesn't work for every color. Just remember, what you see is what you get, and if it's hard to see on the screen, it will be equally so in person.
