CARD & PROJECT EXAMPLES


Welcome to my 'show and tell' page! I hope to update the cards and other examples on this page often - please come back soon!
Please email me with questions you might have on any of the cards or techniques shown.
This first card is one of my favorites - it is called a quilt card. It's difficult to see with this picture, but there are 3 layers to this - each layer building on top of the other at a different angle each time - a wonderful 3-D effect. I saw an article on this in the Rubber Stamper Magazine, and even though they called it something else, it is usually referred to as a quilt card. The stamp I used is from Judikins.

The next card was made by a wonderful artist and stamp designer, Carol Sutter, of Sutter Enterprises. Carol is from Kalispell, Montana, and I hope to have some of her stamp designs on my web page soon.

Magenta images have always been one of my favorites. This next picture shows a notepad folder I made using two of their designs. I colored the image of the lady with black and burgandy markers and stamped onto glossy paper. This was layered onto the burgandy cardstock, along with a stamped border (also from Magenta), embossed with a metallic silver powder which I had added some blue and red to. This was supposed to be a Christmas gift, but ended up liking it so well that I made one for myself, too.

Tulips....one of my favorite flowers (besides Dahlias, of course!). The town I live in (and grew up in) was first settled by Dutch immigrants - and among some of the first settlers were my grandparents. Lynden is full of tulips in the springtime - a celebration of our heritage. The stamp used on this card is from PSX - I colored it using my tombow markers and blending pen. The image was stamped on vellum, which was then layered onto yellow cardstock, and then a sage green cardstock. Makes me think of spring...

Another wonderful card by Carol Sutter of Sutter Enterprises. This pansy stamp by Carol was stamped onto vellum with white ink, then dry embossed from the back with a stylus. This technique gives the look of pergamano - a very elegant card! Carol then layered this onto a holographic blue paper, which was then layered onto a cloudy blue cardstock.

This next card uses an image from Beeswax stamps, a company I discovered at the Puyallup Convention last year. I love their victorian images! This was stamped onto parchment colored cardstock and colored with pencils. I then layered this onto a piece of gold wire ribbon, some green mulberry paper, all on top of a white leatherette cardstock. I added the red button for some extra color and dimension.

Another card representing one of Carol Sutter's designs is shown next, on a card made by Jhone Messinger-Dickson. The image was stamped on a salmon parchment, and embossed with a copper embossing powder. This was then layered onto white, and then blue cardstock. A simple image, but very beautiful!
