Addicted to Stamps and More – Make Your Mark

addicted to stamps

Its time for another challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More, and for this week its “Make Your Mark”, so use your pencils, pens, markers, watercolour brushes…anything that makes a mark, and join in the fun!

The Ton main

I used my Spectrum Noir Sparkles brush pens to make my mark on the beautiful stamp from The Ton called Magnolia Fields and they really sparkle, as you can see in the video below. The sentiment from Penny Black is called “Forever and Always” and I stamped it with Stazon black ink on a piece of acetate. I then adhered it behind the scallop die cut from My Favorite Things.

Don’t you love that sparkle! I doubly enjoyed making today’s card as our house move is FINALLY over!! We handed over the former house today to the owners, after spending one month emptying, painting and cleaning it, while unpacking and setting up the new house at the same time. It was a very tiring month. It also didn’t help that I threw a housewarming/birthday party for 70 people last Saturday, to coincide with my daughter’s 13th birthday. Whew!

I am so glad I can now go back to life as I know it… making cards and painting…and visiting the blogs of all my talented crafty friends. I did so miss it! I still have to install proper lighting and set up a system to take videos in my craft room… and loads of boxes to unpack… but I’ll have till our next move to do that! LoL!

Well I hope you liked my card and that you’ll pop over to the Addicted to Stamps and More blog to see the amazing creations my fellow team mates have made to inspire you. Thanks for visiting and I always do appreciate your comments.


I’m sharing it over at:

  1. This is gorgeous, Gwendolyn. I love that you stamped the frame so it didn’t distract from the wonderful flowers, Using the acetate for the sentiment circle was a brilliant idea.

  3. GASP! Breath-taken-away by your stunning card, Gwendolyn! The flowers, the shimmer, the acetate sentiment…my stars, but this is an incredibly piece of art! Not only am I marveling at your creativity, but at your abundant energy invested in your move and in organizing/hostessing a ‘huge’ party! You’re definitely a super mom, super wife, super designer, super friend!

  7. WOW Gwendolyn! I am so glad you showed us a quick video of just how beautiful your card is IRL. It shimmers! Love everything about this card – the layout, gorgeously coloured flowers, dies and down to the acetate and sentiment. Don’t know how you managed to do all the things you did in the last month. Rest up and craft on!
