On The Corner Blog Hop


My blog pal and funny lady Miriam Prantner designed this cool stamp and she has invited some of her pals to showcase what this magical stamp set can do! 

Well I am last on the hop, "HI" *waving* if you came from Nina's Blog...I don't know how I am going to measure up after all those ladies, but here it goes.


I made 3 cards!! I took these in the morning and they gave off a weird light...Not sure if I am loving the photography today folks, but time was running out so you get this dream like effect.

On the Corner

This first one uses my favorite paper pack of all time by Maggie Holmes for Crate Paper. I paper pierced the stamp. Some wood veneer stars for an edgy vibe.

Miriam blog hop 1

Miriam is a big fan of scrapbooking, so I created a scrapbook inspired card. I found this quote online and decided to write it directly on the card. THAT WAS NERVE WRECKING...way worse than putting splatter on a card! This was my 4th attempt...

On the Corner straight

For the third card I stamped the image and then watercolored it with watercolor crayons and an aqua painter. The skyline die is from Penny Black. Inside the sentiment says "Fantastic & Super".

And here is the amazing stamp set. I have never seen anything on the market like it. It's original, versatile and fun. Miriam is a genius!

  10. Wida, WOW x 3 with these cards! Yes, the set is original, versatile and fun, but YOUR creativity has worked magic in bringing them to life! The paper-piecing in the first, the handwritten quote in the second, and the city-scape background in the third are sheer brilliance, each unique, eye-catching and stunning! Impressive, indeed! Thank you SO much for commenting on my mini cards; I didn't realize Patricia and Debby were mini-card fans, too. I'll be sure to check them out!
