  1. Just when I think “I’ve spent enough money on stamps lately”(yes, again!), you go and inspire me with new ones!! Love those two girls! And your spotlight colouring is great… makes a card seem less daunting! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I love your “gimme 5” series. I never fail to be amazed by your creativity and I always gets lots of inspiration. Thank you!

  3. Your cards are so special. I think you’re inventive and creative. I loved your video, Five cards in 12 minutes is beyond my imagination. And you created 5 different, yet extraordinary cards. Thank you!

  4. Thank you for bringing PB videos into my craft room…love your techniques…stamps on order. Your videos always a high lgh fo my day…..

  5. oh Therese – so creative an clever – 5 beautiful cards and I made none in the weekend – love your thought process and love your work xxxx

  6. I just love your spotlight coloring. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like this so I was quite amazed. I love all of them and I doubt I could pick a favourite, although I do love cats……

  7. Fabulous. Love this/these technique ideas for a time when you don’t have time to colour a whole image! Love the PB stamp sets you have used to. Lucky they not available in my local online store wink wink or they would be on my wishlist.

  8. Five amazing spotlight cards, Therese! Each one has its own personal style! I love the background on the Parisian girl, the splatters over the balloons, the use of the magnifying glass and glasses, and the rich purple coloring on that wizard!

  9. Wow! These cards are Amazing! I love spot lighting but you have taken it to a whole new level. I never thought to use die cut shapes for the highlighted area. It looks fabulous. Thanks for sharing. I will be doing this very soon.

  10. Great stamps and I just love the wiz card.
    Happy to say I’ve been “spotlighting” a bit myself. Really adds fun to a card.
    Thanks for all the inspiration you provide.
    Cheers
    Lisa

  11. These are all fantastic, Therese. I love the way you used the glasses and magnifier to spotlight part of the image. I also love the way you colored the crystal ball and background for the wizard. Stunning!

  12. Love your “Gimme 5” series! Each video is loaded with lots of great techniques and inspiration. Plus, I love your easy approach to crafting with things like—I was going to do such and such, but it was just too much today! I feel that way sometimes, too; but no matter which approach you take, it’s always creative and artistic. Thanks! 🙂

  13. Hi Therese! I made your balloon girl card over the weekend for our g-daughter that just turned 15. I used pink instead of orange though… So fun! She liked it! yay! Thanks again for inspiring! I didn’t get any pictures… 3 cards to make in a day and a half and it was out the door. oh well. 😀

Thanks for visiting! I'd love to hear what you have to say.
