I did these in February at my workshops for the month. These are some of my favoritest–altho I must admit they were modified CASE’s from other artists . . .


The lovely sage design on the left, was modified from an original by www.splitcoaststampers.com/go/tayloredexpressions . Her original design utilized bleach on the lower half of the card. I’m sensitive to the fumes, however, and substituted in the Vanilla Craft Pad to mimic the effect. I also am far too lazy to custom dye twill and subbed in chocolate grosgrain ribbon.

The little 3×3″ valentine was my own design and used the Rock N’ Roll technique to lend depth to the flowers.

The one in the foreground, center, was a modified CASE of an idea I spotted in the Hero Arts catalog–I loved the coloring they used, and the watercolor crayons, so I adapted using the floral images I had on hand.

All these samples feature the Stampin’ up! set “Heartfelt Thanks”–probably my favorite set released in the 2005-2006 IB & C. I hate to say “favorite”, because frankly, my favorites are so many, that I really can’t pick just one . . . chuckle!

I have a serious obsession for so many different brands of stamps, I’m afraid . . . while in Yakima, I spied some stamps I’ve always adored, and my mother purchased them and gave them to me. I nearly danced out the door of the store to have them in my posession! Later on, I’ll have to create some ideas with those and upload . . . dang, just the thought of it makes me giddy!

  1. Mmm! The “birthday wish” card is making me drool…and wish I had that set! ;)

  2. Julie,
    These cards are gorgeous, as per usual. The rock and roll flower looks like you could reach out and touch it, it looks so real. Just beautiful.

  3. Bea-uti-ful!!!! Love the color combos and the tip about “faux bleach”…I too cannot be around bleach..thanks so much! :)

  4. These are FABULOUS! TFS your watercolor crayon creation!!!! I, too, love Heartfelt Thanks. Love you color combos – especially the green & chocolate. Did you say it was Sage Shadow?
