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 Lexi Daly today as she shows how just swapping out colors can instantly change the look and theme of your card design.

“I love Transformation Tuesday and the chance to revisit an old card. Today, I decided to rework a Tea For Two card from my Simple to Spectacular post last month. Following the same basic layout, I swapped out the colors and changed up a couple of small details to quickly take it from Fall to Christmas. Using one card to jump start another is a great way to build up your card stash or get over a creative block. Head on over to my blog to read all about it!”


  • STAMPS: Tea For Two, Merry Mug
  • INK: Pure Poppy, New Leaf, Weathervane
  • PAPER: Stamper’s Select White, New Leaf, Green Parakeet
  • DIES: Tea For Two, Shape Shifters: Oval 3, Bold Borders: Yuletide
  • OTHER: MISTI, foam tape, 2-Way Glue Pen

    Delightful transformation…the tea pot image on these cards is so inviting, especially with the die cut background. I recently purchased this die cut so these cards are an inspiration…they get my creative juices flowing! tfs

    These are both fun cards & I love seeing how just changing colors totally changes the look! Funny, my entry last week was changing colors to turn an anniversary card into a Christmas card! Probably time for me to transform a card I’m not happy with as I’ve loved finally sending some cards that would have been thrown out thanks to this challenge!
