Hallo there blog readers!
It is me, Marlene Meijer-van Niekerk, from ART BY MARLENE…ready to share a new project with you!
This month The Crafter’s Workshop & Canvascorp are teaming up to bring you beautiful spring projects. As I needed to create some “thank you” cards, to thank family and friends whom looked after our house, animals and kids while we went to The Creativeworld Tradeshow in Germany, I decided that this will become my project for today!

Thanks for the photo tutorial. I like all the layers, colors and dimension.
Thank you Sue. The wonderful thing about layers is, if you change only one layer….your project has a totally different look, making it very versatile!
Awesome! I’m going to have to try these.
Please do give it a try Cathy!! x
Marlene, always love your work and these look so fun. Great idea to do for those people in your life that do the extra special things for us. Thank YOU!
Thank you Deb, I love online peeps like you, that always encourage me so much! Thank you.
What a great idea! Thanks for sharing.
It is my pleasure !!
I just love these. The soft colors just shout Spring to me! I love that postcard paper! #tcwccbmatchup
Hi Karen. I truely loved the paper I received for the match up with Canvas Corp. All the paper was so lovely, I had a hard time choosing the best paper for my project.
I love doing this. But I sure don’t often enough.
Yes, we need to take more time to get our hands dirty and play with paper and paint!
Those turned out so nice and the 4 of them go together so well. They almost look like puzzle pieces fitting together in the final picture. If you had 4 more, you could wrap a ribbon around them and give them as a gift set to someone for their use.
Hi Cindy, what a great idea. Thank you for planting a new seed of inspiration!
So cool!!! Marlene’s cards are absolutely awesome!! I love the color combo, the mixed media elements and all the incredible creativity that went into them!!! I just love seeing how all these different products work together and it always has gorgeous results!! Thanks for this fabulous inspiration today (and everyday)!! #tcwccbmatchup
Hi Linsey. This was a lovely project to do. I had great products to work with and could show off how to use one of my newest stencils. I loved the matchup!
These are very doable, they don’t intimidate me into thinking I can’t make my own. I love seeing step-by-step posts, I learn so much, thank you!
Thank you for the kind words and I am so pleased to know that someone out there benefits from these posts! xx
Love that stencil, your colors and what you did with the postcard paper…….would make love Pocket Letters too. thank you!
You are probably going to have a laugh at me, but I have no idea what size pocket letters are! Hahaha!I have never done them, it might be an idea for a next step out!
Nice project, as always!
Thanks for the lovely compliment.
These are so great! They scream spring to me. When I first looked at them I thought, ‘No way would I be able to do something like that.’ I usually think I can do everything, but these looked so layered & complex. Thanks for the detailed step-by-step. I’m done doubting & ready to try it out.
WOW those are fabulous cards! LOVE the texture and colors, too.
Thank you Helen! I appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment! x
Pretty color combo! I love the stencils you used!
Thank you very much Denise. This is one of my new designs from the 2017 Winter release. x
I really liked how you used the shimmer mist with the stencils! Very nice!
