Makeover Monday Challenge #12: Inspired by Dawn McVey

Makeover Monday Chalenge Card by Tracy Wegener

Welcome to this week’s Makeover Monday challenge – a weekly challenge brought to you by the Paper Crafter’s Library and Sunny Stampin’ Studios.  The purpose of Makeover Monday is to help you learn how to take the ideas and inspiration you find on the internet, and make it your own. This challenge is strictly a “work from your stash” challenge. 

Every Monday we take a project we found on the internet, and show you our process for recreating it and making it our own, using supplies from our own stash. 

This week’s inspiration piece was created by a Dawn McVey – a paper artist with a clean and graphic style of stamping.  The card above – created by Tracy – was inspired by Dawn’s card below, and features products from Echo Park’s Spring Time Collection, Hero Arts Fancy Felt Flowers, Buttons and Stamped greeting from Papertrey Ink.

  1. Can you tell me where you got your pop dots, I’ve been looking for that kind!

  2. Very nice. I like the original’s clean white, but your version is great too. I always love the look of a white card, but have a hard time keeping them clean, lol! I really like the felt flowers Tracy used – a nice touch of texture without a lot of weight.

  3. Great cards…just happened to have some of those hero art flowers in my stash….good way to use them up. Thanks for the ideas.
