Keep up the lovely work. I’ve shopped with Art Neko in the past (thanks to one of your videos), and I have to say I was not disappointed. I bought a very inexpensive “sheet” of stamps and it had to have had nearly 50 stamps on it! The deep rubber stamps are great for working with polymer clay. In fact, some stamped clay magnets using my set are next on my to do list. πŸ™‚

  58. Love the card and the peony stamp.

    I actually think the “congratulations” looks out of place? It doesn’t quite fill up the space it’s in, or maybe it’s not bold enough. So either:

    1- try the card front again without a sentiment (I know it can’t be undone, maybe tie some pink/purple ribbon across that area?), or

    2- add a line flourish underneath the congratulations and maybe even trace over the word with a pen to make it more bold, or

    3- add some embellishments (sequins or pearls as suggested by others) near the word.

    (Of course it’s still beautiful as is, but since you asked…)

  104. Hi Lindsay,

    As usually, I love the colors you pick and the stamps are pretty, especially the peony stamp. When you seemed to wonder if the finished card looks good I wondered what could possibly be missing and after a while I thought: with all those cool colors (even the red was a cool red), maybe a touch of a warm color somewhere as a contrast would make the mass of cold colors look even better. I wouldn’t know which color though, green or a warm yellow or something else.

  111. I really like the card you have created with the stamps! It’s quick and easy done but looks absolutely professional. Maybe one could add some glitter but I wouldn’t put more details on the card. It is lovely as it is.

    Love, Andrea

  112. I love flowers and butterflies! Would love those stamps! The colors are very nice. I love to add a hint of an unexpected color. Like yellow or oranges, instead of the color used to ink edges that match. Your card is beautiful!

  117. Hi Lindsay, I just got the inktense blocks and never thought of using them like this. It’s great having you for a teacher. Before I watched the video I wondered how you did the border and then watching you do it made it make sense for me. Love the card just as is. Merry Christmas!!

  125. Lovely project, Lindsay! Maybe it needs just a little sparkle of some sort? Or, a very narrow, dark border between the two pieces? Glad to see how to use the Inktense blocks for stamping; I was not too sure how to go about stamping with them.

  137. Hi Lindsay, I love to watch your videos. Since I am retired now and have the time, you have inspired me to try my hand at watercolors. You make it look so easy. It isn’t that easy for me, but it is fun and that is the point. Thank you!

  138. Blue is my favorite, hands down. If you still want to add something, you could add dotted-line loops to show the butterflies’ flight paths. Another thought would be a patterned exclamation point after the “Congratulations” in some glittery gel pen. If I’d done the text stamping, I’d probably have gone for gold embossing powder atop embossing ink. Whatever… maybe a few flecks of gold throughout the card, just for the snazz.

    My cats “come when called” but it takes time and training. Even so, sometimes they’re busy and expect you to leave a message. They sure do have their little quirks!
