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 Melissa Phillips as she shares a transformation using a layout that she really loves:

“Using a card with a layout you love is a great way to transform it into a second card you’ll also love.  I enjoyed the basic design of my first card using the Merry Mug stamp set and wanted to see how it would look if I mixed up the stamp sets and tried adding in the sweet Winter Fox Set.”


  • STAMPS: Winter Fox, Merry Mug
  • INK: Aqua Mist, Autumn Rose, Spring Moss, Pale Peony, Sweet Blush, Pure Poppy, Soft Stone, Classic Kraft
  • PAPER: Aqua Mist, Fine Linen, Bitty Big: Aqua Mist, Bitty Big: Pale Peony
  • DIES: Winter Fox, Merry Mug, Pierced Feature Frames: Oval
  • OTHER: Sequins

Now we want you to give it a go! Take a card you’ve made in the past and transform it in some way.

    The cards are beautiful Melissa. I have always loved your color combinations and how you have at least five things going on with your cards be it buttons, sequins, ribbon, etc. etc. Thanks for sharing so much talent!
