Welcome to Transformation Tuesday!

We all have cards that don’t necessarily turn out the way we had envisioned or a project that we designed to be feminine that could be made masculine with a few tweaks. Some of you may remember the Recipe Remix Challenge from SAF 2013. It’s sort of like that (but with our own projects instead of customer submitted projects). The idea is to show a project transformed into something fresh and new.

Join Stephanie Gold as she takes a card that she created for this month’s release and changes up the color scheme for a whole new look”

“Although I really liked this card, it felt a little dark for me so I wanted to create a lighter version of it. With a few simple color and cardstock changes, this card gives off a brand new vibe while still maintaining it’s uplifting sentiment.”


  • STAMPS: Orchid Expressions, Words to Live By: Inspire
  • INK: Raspberry Fizz, Hibiscus Burst, Spring Moss, Smokey Shadow
  • PAPER: Stampers Select White, Weathervane, Spring Moss
  • DIES: Orchid Expressions, Pierced Feature Frames, Words to Live By: Inspire

    Both versions are nice, but the lighter version feels happier. It also allows the words to be seen better which is important because you want the recipient to feel appreciated and thanked for being such a positive influence! Great card (& message)!
