Be sure to click on the links within Dina's posting:  a) the link that talks about hopping the color is a video tutorial; b) and the one layer paper tole link. Both links are quick to view and very informative.

On the Spellbinders' blog, they're making a birthday shaker card. This is an excellent step-by-step instruction guide.

There is something in the simplicity of this card that I really really like! It's the perfect card design to use the Magenta multi-language sentiment stamps that I keep adding to my stash of treasured Magenta stamps. The stamp in the photo is from Penny Black, another favorite line of stamps that we sell at Art 'n Soul.

Today was another very fun afternoon at Art 'n Soul. Marj's Fabulous Spring Florals class was filled with great students and lots of good mojo! The variety of techniques that we used was refreshing and educational. And on a sunny day like today, the beautiful colors were wonderful to work with.

After the class, I did use peel-off corners from
Magenta (no longer available) from my stash on
the card base, and small peel-off dots from the
same set on the corners of the inset frame.

by Debbie Gaetz as taught by Marj Marion

At home, I added the enamel dots to the card base

 and water-bubble crystals to the center of two flowers.
You'd never know that the floral stamp from Magenta is
actually a poinsettia . . . versatility is the best, right?

by Debbie Gaetz as taught by Marj Marion

At home, I added a white adhesive-backed pearl in my floral cone and
colored it orange with a Copic marker because some
of my Flower Soft had fallen off and left a blank spot.
I also added peel-off corners from a Magenta set I had.

I wish I had felt better to take pics of the cards made by the other students. It seemed like everyone had a variation of their own to add to the original card designs for a random number of reasons. The sign of a good teacher is the ability of each student to take their own design preferences and add them to the overall end results because of the artistic inspiration provided in the lessons. Marj, you're the best!

Time to close out. Pam will be at Art 'n Soul all day tomorrow (Monday) to help with your inspirations and technique questions. I'll be back with another Inspiration Station card and a new paper product!
