Eastern Beauty Thank You

Good morning and happy Monday! I am back from another weekend up north fishing with my husband. I had a great time! It's hard to fit in both of my loves - fishing and stamping, but I'm making it work!

I have a gorgeous card to show you today using the Eastern Palace bundle again. I can't get enough of this new product. I am in love with those medallions and everything you can do with them!

Sneak Peek & 2-Step Stamp Watercolor Technique

TGIF, stampers! Are you inspired by the beautiful weather we've been having? I know I am! I love all the green leaves I've been seeing, and that is my inspiration for the card I'm showcasing today!

Doesn't this card just make you think relaxation? Can't you just feel the sunshine and cool breeze imaging yourself sitting in that chair under a shady maple tree with bright green spring-time leaves? And the elegance of that faux bow in the NEW Fresh Fig in-color. I love, love, love Fresh Fig paired with Pear Pizzaz. It's such a sharp color combination!

This card uses a fun and EASY watercolor technique with those 2-step stamped leaves in the background.

You get a sneak peak at this new product and can see how I made this card in my video tutorial. The stamp set will be available June 1st, so now you have an idea of what to use it with before you can even buy it! Click below to watch my video.

I hope that you enjoyed my sneak peek!

Thanks for stopping by!

Fresh Fig Eastern Beauty

Happy Monday...errr, I mean WEDNESDAY! It feels like Monday to me, though. I just got back from vacation! I spent 5 amazing days "off the grid" fishing in Northwoods Wisconsin. I love the simplicity of time spent in the boat without paying any attention to my cell phone. I am relaxed and rejuvenated.

So - did you get your hands on the Eastern Palace bundle while I was gone? This bundle is a beauty - I can't get enough. Today I want to showcase this beautiful card my friend Connie made and am giving you step-by-step instructions to make it yourself.

Isn't this card stunning? I absolutely love, love, love that Fresh Fig pop of color against the crisp Whisper White. Fresh Fig is one of our new in-colors, and I can't get enough!
