Jan, this card is stunning. Like another commenter, this is the first depiction of this flower that would make me get this set.
You always come up with the most stunning cards that are out of the norm of most posts.

Bobbi Miller

Outstanding! Your research on the flower was a great idea, one that I had not thought of. Having this beauty float on that gorgeous water, well, there are no words. Thanks for sharing. I am going to have to try making this. :-)

WOW!!! That is one awesome card. Do you ever do "how-to" videos? This would be one that I would love to watch and learn since I'm such a visual learner!

Thanks for sharing!



saw you & lydia chatting on facebook, so had to come on over and check it out ... I am waiting on this stamp to arrive for me, and I am saving this to try myself ... you seriously knocked this one out of the park ... gorgeous!

Shannon in AZ

Jan, this card is truly STUNNING!! Kudos to you for doing your homework, and ours, and finding out the correct 'look' that this lotus blossom should imitate. A tutorial, and I would even pay for it, would clue us in to your amazing brain and how you created this. I bow down to you in homage to your creative expertise. Yes, I am blathering on but this card just deserves it. THANK YOU for showing all of us the true depiction of how this stamp should look. Stamp on, JAN; stamp on.

Rochelle Blok

Meg M.

wow Jan!!! I knew you were amazing before... this takes it to a whole new level. You could sell this for $10... now make hundreds, post them on etsy and retire. ;) I hope I can emulate this with some success. It is gorgeous, like you.


I, too, looked at images before stamping this one. You explain your thought process very well. Thanks for the realistic lotus card.


So happy to stumble upon this gorgeous piece of art, what can I say except, WOW! Love it...thanks so much for sharing and brighten this rainy day.


A little late to the party, here, but YES, a work of art, without a doubt! You ROCK!


This card is so unbelievably beautiful! You are so talented!

Bea Redd

I love your lotus card and no doubt that this card will get noticed all around the SU world.
I am going to attempt to CASE your card but just in case it doesn't come out as beautiful as yours, I'll be coming back in hopes of finding a video tutorial. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful talent.
