  1. Darlene,
    Great card! I love how you made the frame around the outside. Thanks for sharing this idea.
    Always such fun to watch you create.

    Thanks again, Darlene for sharing this easy and cute way to make a card. I love how you describe exactly how to create your cards. Also letting us know what kind of ink, stamps, etc. you use…can’t wait for next week’s project!!

  3. I agree with Maria… I didn’t appreciate the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set. I’m in to abstract art images and this will definitely be one to get. You make it look so easy and I do appreciate your fantastic inspirational techniques. I saw your video on your comparision of water color paper and I am going to get some of that 90 lb watercolor paper.

    What a delightful way to “blend” two sets into one fantastic card!
    Have a safe & enjoyable Fourth!!!

    Great card, as always Darlene!! You know? that stamp set, “Gorgeous Grunge” didn’t really caught my eye but now I think it’s really cool. Some times I need to see it in “action” to appreciate it better, the pictures on the catalog not always help you notice the sets.
    Thanks for another winner video.

  6. Great video – I love how clear your directions are and the tips you offer are always spot on too. Those are two of my must-have stamps in the new catalog. We will get gorgeous grunge at convention and I would love to win the other one. Thanks for posting your darling card and video.

  7. So great, as always. Love that you just hand-draw the outlines… I would be so scared to screw it up. You’ve made me want those Distress Markers too. On my shopping list now!

    I so wish I could order from your sister… it won’t let me and redirects to a Canadian supplier – but I would rather order from her so the money goes to charity!

  8. How very cute! Love the blending…you always make it look so easy. *sigh… 😉
