Love these, I'm going to try to CASE them too. Thanks Jan.

Trina Caraway

Those are sooooooooooo awesome! Thanks for posting them, Janine!


wowsers Jan this is gorjus!!!!


Both these cards are gorgeous. The depth of color is amazing.


oh my goodness, Jan! I love your work, have followed you since I joined Stampin' Up!® 3 1/2 years ago, so I know this is quite a departure for you. These are both stunning, absolutely fabulous. I like the second one better, even the waves - there's nothing "wrong" with the first one, but you did improve it.


These little pieces of art are stunning. You have an amazing talent. TFS

Sue Erickson

Absolutely beautiful! I like the effect of the white gel pen on the second card and the color you added. I also created a card tonight using a sailing ship image. I'll get it posted on my blog in the morning.

Edna Burgess

Both pretty, but I do like the moon to the right better also. Edna

I agree GOJUS!


Wow - both cards are beeyootifull! Once again, I bow to the Queen! :-)


Love, love, love them both.

Micheline Lueken

Both cards are beautiful, but I did especially love the rough seas of the first card. I'm going to have to practice my sponging more.

Stef Perry

Both cards are amazing, Jan. You are so talented , I'm sure you could conquer any method or card style out there. TFS!

Wendy C

Love both these cards! I like the moon to the right, but the first card has wonderful seas. ahhh, how to do this with sponging? I am SO going to CASE these! Thanks, Jan - you do marvelous work!

Carol Carriveau

Fabulous, both look so real...I think i like the one with the sun/moon best!


Oh, I wish I were as talented as you and Heather. Gorgeous is not a strong enough word. Lovely, stunning, and just so right.

Katherine Fiander

Jan I have been following your blog for some time now. I, too, get inspiration from your blog and was familiar with Heather Telford's sponging. I think you did a wonderful job on this card. I just may have to case it!

Janet Masters

Wow how talented are you, I guess stamping is not just about stamps it takes a very talented creative person to do this, well done, love them, I only wish.

Heather T

These are fabulous, Jan. I love the waves you have created. Thank you for the link and kind words. I am glad I inspired some one layer card making even if one turned into two layer. It happens to me all the time!
