A few “toots” and a CASE & Freebies!

Well, my mailbox has been busy this week! I was asked (along with fellow MyGrafico designers Cheri Wenger and Blackleaf Studios) to design a custom digital stamp for Paper Crafts Magazine’s special publication Stamp It! Cards. You can download all of our designs here. Gotta love free right?

I really enjoyed this issue of Stamp It! Cards, infact I found many ideas I wanted to try. Here is a card I CASE’d (CASE=copy and steal everything), the original card is on page 89 of Stamp It! Cards and it was by Agniesza Malyszek, her’s turned out much prettier than mine but I still like it 😉


To make the card I stamped the butterflies in Versafine black and heat embossed them with clear then loosely splashed watercolor over them. Honestly I got a little TOO loose with the watercolor and I’m not sure what I was thinking with the flourescent coral sentiment block but, hey, it was fun!

Tuesday I got the September issue of Scrap & Stamp Arts and I just about fell over to see my button cards on the COVER:

 SSA September 2011

BTW you can still get the July Issue of SSA with my marker review spreadsheet. Honestly, it is more than you ever wanted to know about Alcohol & Watercolor markers and extra ways to use them.

 SSA July 2011

Current Issue CoverOh and one more Pub…I have 2 cards in the July issue of Vamp Stamp News.


OK I think I just dislocated my shoulder patting myself on the back 😛 til next time happy crafting!

  1. Congratulations! I’m really happy for you! 🙂 It is well diserved 🙂 Have a great day and don’t worry about your shoulder, I’m sure it will be all right 😉


  2. You should be patting yourself on the back, Lindsay. Great job on getting so many things published, gal!!! The nice thing about you is that you’re always your sweet self no matter how much acclaim you receive. I so appreciate that in you.

    Your card is beautiful! I love the watercolor effect you did. Something more for me to try. 😉 Hugs to you!!!


  3. Congratulations on the publications!!!! Not surprising to any of us out here. Here let me take over, you rest that shoulder and I’ll pat you on the back . You certainly deserve it. Your card is beautiful! I love the watercolor technique. Something I can handle so I’ll have to try it soon.
    Blessings Bernie
