That punched Robot is adorable! I love that little bag. The faux torn vellum is something I've never tried, but now it's high on my list. It looks fantastic. The Greenhouse Garden set is on my Wish List. I love what you did with it and the embossed vase.

Shona Watson

These are so creative, Gretchen! I love the embossing on the "vase" on the first card. And your little robot is so stinkin' cute! Great job!

Diane McCornack

All are lovely Gretchen. TFS

So fun how we were on the same wavelength with a couple of our projects... you know what they say about great minds .. LOL :) :) Question... did you have trouble getting the grommet thru the ribbon? I'm not very successful with that... Patty

I might just have to case the faux vellum technique...what a great card...and a nice way to use those gigunda brads that I "had to have" and haven't used yet! Nice job!

Carolyn Sharkas

These are great, love the techniques and the punched robot. thanks so much for sharing

Elizabeth M. Harris

What amazing projects, Gretchen! I am in awe of your faux vellum card. It's gorgeous!

Kate Cecil

Gretchen, love all of your projects!! The Faux torn velum is beautiful!!!


Gretchen...absolutely wonderful projects! The little robot is TOO cute and the faux vellum card is beautiful!


I really like the faux vellum technique! Of course, I will have to try the little multi-punch robot, too. Great job!

Carolyn Dieleman

Gretchen, I love the intense and daring colour combination of your first card! I covet it, but only in the best of ways:) It's enough to make me order that set! The second card uses this new set in a warm and inviting way - and has just enough complexity to make you look again! Thank you again for all that you share.


the second card intrigued me. thank you for explaining how you did it. just one more thing on "my dumb junk i gotta do list".

Jennifer Eby

I love the faux torn vellum and have already made a bunch of cards using that technique. It is so easy but I have never seen it before. Thanks for showing us how. Jennifer

Phyllis Johnson

Your work is amazing!! I love looking at all your gorgeous projects! You are soooo talented!!!!!


Hi Gretchen! I love all of your cards. One question for ya - does the modern label punch "nest" inside the modern label mover and shaker die?


Cute, cute punched Robot! Very creative!

I fell in love with the Faux Vellum you posted and saved it to use at a later date. Well, I finally got to play with your technique today - well, not the faux vellum technique, the hand made DSP that you made. I followed your instructions for layering using the same stamps and colors and created a beautiful paper, thanks to you. You can see what I did with here:
I made sure that I gave you full credit for that technique, so hopefully it brings some traffic your way.
Thanks for the inspiration and instructions.

Hi Gretchen, I see it's been awhile since you posted these wonderful ideas. I have a question for you on the star punch ... how did you get the star to be upright? Thanks for any help you can give!!

Erika Clark

Goodness, Gretchen! You've outdone yourself again :). The Greenhouse Garden card is so elegant, and then the robot favor is so darn cute! I love all of them.

Erika Clark

LOL, I'm just realizing I'm commenting on an old post! Aye, it's been a long weekend! I still love the projects though! Heehee. Erika
