I had so much fun making these little magnets for Unruly Paper Arts!  All three ladies are stamps (Teesha Moore and Lynne Perrella) colored with Ranger Distress Markers. I have a short article up at UPA today… hope you'll pop over and say hello.

Did you recognize what I used as my three magnet bases?  Love recyling my lids:


I'll also enter these at Fashionable Stamping Challenge, where the theme is “Alter Something.”

Thanks for the visit!

    I simply had to say thanks again. I’m not certain the things that I would’ve accomplished without the information documented by you concerning such a subject. It seemed to be an absolute troublesome condition in my opinion, nevertheless considering a well-written approach you processed the issue made me to weep with fulfillment. I am just thankful for the support and in addition believe you are aware of a great job that you’re getting into training many others by way of a blog. More than likely you have never encountered all of us. [url=http://michaelkorsbagsnow.cabanova.com]Michael Kors Bags[/url]

    These are terrific! I recognized the lids right away but I thought there was no way you would use the lids because you need them, right? So I too am dying to know what happened to those ink pads???

  5. Fliss on October 8, 2012 at 3:13 am

    Really gorgeous creations Marje. Very inventive although it does make me wonder what happened to the ink pads!
    Thanks for joining our small packages challenge at FSC and lovely to see you.

    great project and what a wonderful way to upcycle those throw aways. I guess i will need to use more ink so i can have some lids to play with

    Hi Marjie
    I return to comment this time with my FSC hat on :)
    Too fabulous an idea to recycle the lids and turn them into amazing home decor items that are practical and funky and yes, they would make fabulous gifts.
    Thank you for sharing such a clever altered item with us at FSC this fortnight.
    P.S. My copy of Sampler arrived today – your goddess looks even more amazing when I see her before me.

  23. Stacy on September 24, 2012 at 7:23 am

    Very creative idea!! Love them

  25. Terry on September 24, 2012 at 6:46 am

    I knew it! When I saw these, the first thing I thought was Distress Ink Pads! Gorgeous recycled projects and not to mention pretty cool!

  26. Valerie-Jael on September 24, 2012 at 5:38 am

    These are gorgeous, great idea to re-cycle those lids! Valerie

    How cool is this ?! Such a fabulous idea, would never have been thought on altering a lid. COOL !!! Thanks for joining us at FSC this fortnight.

  29. Anne R on September 23, 2012 at 11:41 pm

    Genius idea, beautifully executed and fabulous wording…A x

  30. Lynn Stevens on September 23, 2012 at 5:51 pm

    Oh My Gosh!!! Who would have thought to use the lids? You of course. Brilliant Marjie. I’ll have to remember this!
    hugs Lynn

  31. Kathy Eddy on September 23, 2012 at 5:04 pm

    These are just fantastic Marjie!

  32. Anita Houston on September 23, 2012 at 4:47 pm

    LIDS??? How cool!!! What did you do with the ink? Fabulous idea Marjie…they are wonderful!!!

  33. Dorothy on September 23, 2012 at 3:41 pm


  34. kathy/NorthCarolina on September 23, 2012 at 3:25 pm

    How fun! I love that you repurposed the links from your ink. I have a vintage photo and a walnut stain that are just about ready to give up the ghost. I’ll keep this in mind. I think my favorite is “warranty not included.” It just makes me snicker for some reason. The butterfly is a nice touch of whimsy, and the way she’s half way out of the “frame” is visually interesting, too.

  35. Sue on September 23, 2012 at 3:11 pm

    Too cool Marjie! Now you could definetly sell these if you wanted (ie the QOTW at ATT, all your stuff for that matter!!

  36. Brenda Brown on September 23, 2012 at 2:53 pm

    These are great fun with gorgeous images, colouring and layering.
    Hope you have had a good weekend Marjie.
    hugs {brenda} xox

  37. Lisa H on September 23, 2012 at 2:40 pm

    Awesome!! I bet you could take apart altoid tins and do the same thing.

  38. Helen Tilbury on September 23, 2012 at 1:19 pm

    These are 100% COOL!!! What a great idea, looks great & love the recycled aspect too :)

  39. 2amscrapper on September 23, 2012 at 12:41 pm

    well aren’t you clever!!!!!! these are fantastic!

  40. Marjie Kemper on September 23, 2012 at 12:20 pm

    Stephanie & Barbara…. these are old lids from before I knew about re-inkers… I used to throw away the pads before I knew you could refresh them. Not anymore!

  41. Alison on September 23, 2012 at 11:19 am

    Love…love…love!!! x

  42. KimMJ on September 23, 2012 at 10:54 am

    Love them all! What a great idea using the lids as they make a really great base and make your collages look framed. Beautiful job! Thanx so much for sharing and for the great idea :)

  43. Alie Hoogenboezem-de Vries on September 23, 2012 at 10:30 am

    What a great idea Marjie! I love your “magnets”…the stamping and colouring is soooo nice! Love it…
    greetings, Alie :-)

  44. Julia on September 23, 2012 at 10:29 am

    Gorgeous stamps and loving the colours very much! Great idea to use the lids too. I love the sentiments; I think the warranty one would suit me at my age!
    I’ve got some vintage beer mats which you’ve now given me an idea for – thanks Marjie!!

  45. Vivian K on September 23, 2012 at 10:28 am

    These are so beautiful and funky! What an innovative way to use your lids!

  46. Barbara Albrecht on September 23, 2012 at 10:09 am

    WONDERFUL!!!! Distress lids….I did the same thing as Stephanie…gasped and then wondered what happened to you ink pads.

  47. butterfly on September 23, 2012 at 9:40 am

    Love your miniature collages, Marjie – such wit and skill combined… great!
    Alison x

  48. Stephanie Rodgers on September 23, 2012 at 9:39 am

    These are awesome! I thought they were Distress lids, and when you revealed that they really were, I heard an audible gasp come from my lips … what happened to the pads?!!! lol

  49. Willy on September 23, 2012 at 9:34 am

    They are really stunning! What a great idea to use those lids, Marjie!
