Transformation Tuesday With Dawn McVey

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 Dawn McVey today as she transforms a summer “Thank You” card into a wintry “Thank You” card just like that!

“So when it comes to Transformation Tuesday, sometimes I take a different approach and use is as an opportunity to take a card design from the pas that I’ve loved and remake it to suit a need,  In this case, I’m making some post-Christmas thank you cards and used this design from last summer in a fresh, new way with some wintry colors!  I love this look and the ability to repurpose a favorite card for a new season!”


  • STAMPS: Stacked Statements, Floral Sketches
  • INK: Fresh Snow, Pure Poppy, Hibiscus Burst, Raspberry Fizz
  • PAPER: Stamper’s Select White, Pure Poppy, Raspberry Fizz, Aqua Mist, Tropical Teal
  • DIES:  Stacked Statements, Delicates, Basic Bookmark #2, Skinny Mini Banners

    Dawn, these “thanks” are so lovely…like your color combinations. The “thanks” is a great stamp and die set. tfs

    Quick question: Will it be okay if I took an old card and transformed it instead of making a new card? I actually did this a little while ago but I had taken a photo of the first try, didn’t quite like it and changed it up a bit.

      Lisa, as long as you are transforming one card design to a new one, then you are definitely taking part of this type of challenge!
