Fifth Avenue Florals

I just love water- coloring these flowers from Fifth Avenue Floral. They're such gorgeous images and look so great with watercoloring. Of course, you don't HAVE to color them. They look great as an outline image also. This little notebook is something that I've wanted to do for awhile. I had some extra lilies from watercoloring a few days ago. I used my round tab punch to make two sections: color combinations and sketches. The spiral punch allowed me to completely cover the front of the notebook. Isn't that cool??!! This way I can have the notebook along with me, write down ideas and not lose them because they're on a scrap piece of paper. I don't know about you, but looking through magazines while waiting for an appointment is prime time for finding inspiration.
This is a special thank you to a special lady who gives of her time so freely to our school. We love her dearly and want her to know that. This card had to be special to convey that thought, so I used more watercolored flowers and my Damask texture plate. The thank you is from Beautiful Borders, a lovely set.
So, do I have you convinced yet about his technique? Want to hold a workshop so that you can learn this one? Give me a shout out. I still have a spot left in June, which would be taking advantage of the "Last Call" list before a huge number of stamp sets retire. Or July, when the new catalog is out and everyone wants to see it.

Thanks for stopping by the Stamping Station.

  1. Both cards are gorgeous, Julie!! I love the pink and the soft feel of both. I did a card similar to the bottom one at my club on Sunday and they loved it!

  2. Julie, I love the notebook. It looks so soft and peaceful. I have a larger book, but this would be perfect for fitting into a purse. It is so pretty.

  3. What beautiful flowers, Julie...the notebook is sooo gorgeous and I love how you added the flowers to the top note on the card!!! I just love all the pink, too!!!

  4. Oh WOW Julie! These are gorgeous! I love that journal...beautiful coloring

  5. These are all just beautiful flowers/cards. Glad to see some of the other flowers in the set used this way. I've got to try that technique. It's just gorgeous. The idea for the spiral notebook is great, and it is fabulously done as well. Love your "stuff"...

  6. I love these. They colors look so soft and pretty:)
