Purple Best Wishes

It's a very busy time of the year - I am sure you all agree. For me that means very little time to play and blog, don't know how you all do it... Maybe you are better organized than I am...

Amidst all the gorgeous holiday cards in blog land I dare to show you a birthday card!







Stamps: Winnie & Walter (background), Avery Elle (sentiment)
Dies: My Favorite Things (flowers and leaves)


Clear embossed the background on watercolor paper and watercolored it. Die cut the flowers, the purple one is watercolored, the smaller one is cut from a scrap of shimmery vellum. Stamped the sentiment on a strip of vellum.


Sending this to

CAS Watercolor December Challenge






Just realized it would work also for

CAS Mix Up December Challenge
I used heat embossing, watercoloring, and die cutting







Be well and keep in touch!

Beautiful shades of purple and great geometric patterns, Susanne! The bright white thick frame is perfect for the purple center image. The sentiment vellum banner and the flower make the card look light too. Hideko :-)

GORGEOUS! I can't remember the last time I used this faceted stamp (I have a die as well), and seeing you showcase it here has me antsy to bring it out! I'm saving your card for down the road (because 'someone' is still doing her Christmas projects...).
Hugs~c

Liebe Susanne,
Du hast eine wunderbare Karte gewerkelt. Der embosste Hintergrund in Kombination mit den Wasserfarben sieht total klasse aus. Ein Kärtchen, dass das ganze Jahr passt und immer wieder durch andere Farben abgewandelt werden kann. Ganz, ganz toll.
Liebe Grüße Katrin

Ach jetzt fühle ich mich ein bisschen weniger allein denn mir geht es genauso wie Elisabeth. Am liebsten hätte ich sie alle, aber dann.....!
CH bin total fasziniert von deiner Karte, so einfach und so wirkungsvoll!!!

PS wenn du mir verrätst wo du wohnst dann bekommst du zu Weihnachten Post von mir! 😉

Actually it's nice to see something besides a holiday card right now, Susanne! I love these shades of purple and the vellum flower adds lots of dimension! Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Watercolour!

Gorgeous colors in this Pop-Op art piece! I love this look, but would have not known how to showcase it as splendidly as you did here. It's a lovely watercolor effect, and the vellum banner looks great, not hiding the fracture design. The dimensional flower is perfect as an embellie that adds, but doesn't take away from the great design of this card. (I'm not organized either, and feel like I'm about 3 days behind where I should be!) TFS & Merry Christmas. Best wishes for a wonderful 2018.
