  • Make a mask for the quote stamp and place on paper before stamping
  • On watercolor card stock, stamp Impression Obsession's "Zenspirations" (L15079) in black VersaFine and emboss with clear embossing powder
  • Go over phrase with Gelly Roll Stardust pen
  • Paint IO stamp design with Magenta's Nuance powdered watercolor dyes
  • Round corners of card panels. Layer watercolor panel onto black card panel. Make the red-colored panel with Nuance (red and orange) and Red Perfect Pearls.

Sharon Wolvin brought in a finished card she had made from a Terry Medaris angel stamp. She already had the patterned paper and framed that with the So Silk card stock in Fair Blue.

Have you thought about what you might do with any of Terry Medaris' stamp designs? It might be more than using colored pencils. Don't you love the way Sharon incorporated her affinity for Zentangle™ and doodle patterns? I certainly do!

On the Magenta blog, Marietta has made a beautiful card using the Magenta Nuance watercolor powdered dyes.

On the Memory Box blog, Deborah Nolan has made this fun Halloween card using their new die designs. I like the kraft colored paper base and the simplicity of the overall design.

Here's a card I made using a Memory Box frame die and flower die over a piece of Vertigo from IMAGINE Crafts.

by Debbie Gaetz
  • StazOn Midi in Orange Zest inked on the backside of the  Taffeta Vertigo; then cut to fit inside the die cut frame as a background
  • Blue Mirricard Card Stock cut with Findley Frame (98540) Memory Box die, backed with Stick It! double-sided adhesive sheet for die cutting by Ken Oliver Crafts
  • Removing the adhesive cover from the backside of the frame die cut, place the right-side up Vertigo oval cut piece behind the Findley Frame die cut and place onto the top card panel (Tsumugi silk linen in Aqua) that has been embossed with an embossing folder from Cuttlebug (product info not available).
  • The floral inset is from the Memory Box Bloomington Border die (99008) that has been trimmed to leave off the bottom flower. The card stock is Curious Metallic in Mandarin. Glue dots are placed behind the  blossom heads. The bottom of the border die is tucked in between the die cut frame and the Vertigo film backing.
  • The top panel is framed by a lime-green piece of card stock.
  • All panels are centered onto an A-2 card base made from 118 lb. card stock (Conqueror in Diamond White).
  • The 3-D butterfly embellishment is from Little B.
Since I have discovered how easy this card was to make, I'm going to make other variations. As they're made, I'll be sure to share those with you.

Please be sure to stop in and let our uber staff share their creative techniques and ideas. They're always delighted when asked!

Thanks for stopping by today. I know it's been a few days. I've been busy with doctor appointments and 2 days of canning 75 lbs. of little cucumbers that will become delicious dill pickles this fall. Luckily my sweet husband recognized my difficulties in doing it by myself, so he stepped in and helped me all day Monday. It has taken me most of today to recover and clean up the kitchen. But it's all worth it!
