From the Magenta blog, there are 2 postings I want to direct you to. The first one shows how Bianca uses the new Magenta Chicken Wire template.

This is the link to Bianca's how-to instructions: 

Next, Ellie Knol shows the various ways she has used the new Magenta poppy stamp; I love each and every one of them.

"Lovely" Linda Lucas has worked her magic with colors to make this awesome card for IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko. It's all done with a stencil from Dreamweaver Stencils, Fireworks!, VersaMagic, and a Spellbinders' die.

Even though it's not a one-layer card, I consider this one to be very close because I only used one card panel on the front. I always seem to gravitate to this beautiful Leafy Vines stamp from Hero Arts. My niece said she wanted a birthday card that was 'pink', so here it is.

Somewhere on the wonderful worldwide web, I saw this zentangle™ project. It was a gift to a friend who had recently started chemotherapy treatments for cancer. This artist found the perfect way for her friend to store her new wig.
