Blooming Thanks
by Sue McRae

Hi everyone, Sue here with a water coloured floral thank you card.

P1310266c

I started off by using my Luxe Background die to emboss a piece of water color paper (just use your embossing rubber mat betweem the clear plates so the die doesn't cut through the paper) and then water coloured with some paints in different shades of blue.

I die cut the Hampstead Corner (twice, because I only used the flowers) and the Monterey Vine out of water colour paper and used paints on these as well.  

P1310269c

The sentiment was stamped in black onto vellum, clear embossed and wrapped around the corner of the background piece.

P1310262c

I finished by adding some gems and a bit of Wink of Stella to the flowers.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Watercolor Bellina Corner Thank You
by Jeanne Jachna

 Butterfly-Corner-One

I love butterflies! Have you checked out all the latest additions to the Poppystamps catalog?  There are a three dies that feature the "Bellina" style  butterflies - they're loopy and  feminine.  You can see all the Poppystamps butterfly dies here.
Butterfly-Corner-Five
Corner dies are really easy to work with and a great addition to your die collection.  I made this card by painting two watercolor panels with Peerless Watercolors.  I used the same colors on both panels.  
Butterfly-Corner-Two
Next I cut the Bellina Butterfly corner from a piece of white cardstock, and adhered it to one of the watercolor panels.  Inlay the die by adhering it inside the open window.
Butterfly-Corner-Three
Stamp a simple sentiment on the panel like this one from "Hope and Thanks".  I trimed the panel down and glued some craft foam to the back before attaching it to my card base.  This adds a little dimension.  Inexpensive sheets of craft foam are great for large panels because you can trim them to size to support the entire panel.
 Butterfly-Corner-Four
Remember the second watercolor panel we painted?  Die cut the Bellina Corner one more time from the watercolor paper.  Remove the die cut butterflies and attach them to your cover panel.  Everything matches perfectly!   The Bellina Corner is great because it's like two dies in one - the corner, and three extra butterflies you can use on other projects!
Butterfly-Corner
There are lots of fun looks you can create with this same technique - change the colors or if you don't like to watercolor, consider a glitter background or some pattern paper!  Have fun and happy creating!

Golden Leaves
by Olga Direktorenko

Hi crafty friends, 

The fall is just starting so let's welcome the season with a gold leaf card! 

I have chosen some lacy dies to make it look light and airy and also did some stamping with real leaves to get skeleton imprints. 

I am including a VIDEO TUTORIAL where I show the whole process.

My Little Wedding Card
by Mary McMillan

01-wedding

Before I tell you about this card, I want to give you a bit more news.  So, grab your coffee, tea or water and have a seat...this could turn out to be quite lengthy.....

I want to share some news that I think will be a good move for me, though I must say it has not come without MUCH thinking.  This will be my last post as a Design Team member.  Trust me, I have thought and thought about this and I have put off writing the post for as long as I can.  I've been a member of the team for the past few years and I have loved every minute.  How could I not?  That said, I know it's time for me to step back and let some new people have the wonderful experiences I've had.  

Every one of the Design Team members are wonderful women.  I've only met them through their blog posts and through emails, but I feel I know them and they are the best!  I will miss them, but I will be following each of them through this blog page and through their personal blog pages.  Thanks ladies for your inspiration!

I want to thank Jeanne for her guidance and her kind and calm manner.  Esp[ecially when I was attempting to learn how to link and post.  She proved you can teach an old dog new tricks!  I have no idea how she remained sane.  She encouraged me through some hard times as I blabbered on and on.  I'm sure she doesn't know how much she means to me and for that matter all of us.  Thank you Jeanne!

And Dave....the designer of the beautiful Poppystamps and Memory Box dies, stencils and stamps.  All I can say is the man is a genius!  But then, you all know that...right?  What you may not know, he is a most kind and generous man.  Yet another reason I thought long and hard about leaving the team.  He can be sure I'll be thinking of him whenever I use one of his creations.  

And of course everyone I've met in cyberspace.  Your comments, emails and likes here and on Facebook and Pinterest  have been such a joy to read.  I've visited your pages too and have been in awe of your creations.  Thank you for bringing inspiration and smiles to my world.  

I won't be totally gone from the blog world.  I'll be posting on my blog page, and you can bet I'll be playing along with as many challenges as I can.   Closing a chapter and looking forward to what the new pages will be....

And now....on to my card....  A friend is getting married next month and though I can't attend, I wanted to make a card for the couple.  The inspiration for this card was the new Distressed Benson Corner.  I cut it on a 6x6 piece of white linen card stock.  The rest just fell into place.  I printed the sentiment on vellum and heat embossed it.  Yes, you can....but be quick have everything ready because you don't have lots of time when it comes from the printer.  I used the Oval frame background and the Woodland Oval to surround the sentiment.  The Lorelai Outline and the Lorelai Leaf along with the Berry Sprig helped to finish off the front of my card.  I added silk flowers, stamen, a buckle and a bit of ribbon and the outside is complete.  

Here's what I did on the inside: 

03-Wedding

I like to repeat elements from the outside and as you can see I did.  I did add the General Store Tag as my signature and to add a bit of dimension, I used an embossing folder.  This time I didn't heat emboss the sentiment.  I was worried it would dry before I had the chance to get powder on the entire piece.  

Now you know how I made this card.  It really is an easy one to make, though I think looks pretty elegant.  

See you again in "Blogville"  Hugs and so much love to each of you,

Mary Signature copy
