TIME OUT#52 - CASEing Marjan Kuppers

It's time for another TIME OUT challenge and this week we are CASE-ing the fabulous Marjan Kuppers - her blog, M@rjan's Blog is an amazing artistic inspiration so make sure to stop by. Here is the card she shared for us to CASE as well as the description of how she created it:

How Majan's made this card in her own words:

This card was made with Stampin Up stamps (Painted Petals). I colored directly onto the stamps with Blendabilities (markers). I stamped the front panel and then cut out the top right section. 
Behind that I made a window with mica. Then I layed the whole piece with the cutout onto a white card and positioned the cutout inline with the stamps. After that I adhered the stamped panel to a white card with foamtape to create depth.

Here is my take:

The two elements that I CASE-d were the technique (marker stamping) and the "window". I have to admit that I struggled with this one and the design changed numerous times before I finally landed with this card. I coloured some Hero Arts wildflower stamps with Distress Markers before stamping onto watercolour paper. I used a small amount of water and a brush to blend out the colour. I used some stitched rectangle dies to create a frame and inlaid the "water coloured" panel. I stamped the card front with an Ellen Hutson sentiment (my current fave sentiment!) - and then I used a texture plate to add some texture to the card front.

I can't wait to see all the card that Marjan's beauty inspires - so make you that you take the TIME OUT to join us!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Love the watercolour flower-panal! And that sentiment is a beautiful one; would be one of my favo's for a long time too! Hugs, Gerrina

  2. You made have struggled but this turned out wonderful. The flower panel is really arty and love the extra texture you have used x

  3. I think your card is so very beautiful! The vibrant colours of the blooms really stand out against the white. Thank you for casing my card!

  4. Your card is fabulous, Jill!! I have never colored a stamp - and think I should try it - thanks for the share.
    I must know more about that 'texture plate", please!!

  7. This card is gorgeous. I like how you took some elements from Marjan's card, but made it totally your own. The water coloring looks really wonderful in those deep bright colors.

  8. Soft, delicate and gorgeous, Jill ... and such yummy texture! Hugs, Anita :)
