  1. Just gorgeous, Therese! Thanks for the marker blending tips. I have had problems blending With the Evergreen marker and will use the tip to tip method. Your card designs are always lovely.

  2. Have you ever thought of continuing the color beyond the leaf or flower to eliminate the bright white border ? As you may tell, I’m not the biggest fan of that white border. I do realize many like that it. Have a blessed day. Thanks again

    1. Hi Laurie, I am hit and miss on the ‘white’ border, somethimes I think it actually helps to pop an image especially if there is a busy background. But sometimes I just don’t want it, then I just grab out my scissors and fussy cut the images. thanks so much for your lovely visit, Crafty hugs, Therese

  3. Therese, this is absolutely gorgeous! These look amazing with subtle background and vivid colors you chose!! Thanks for the inspiration! Have a wonderful day!

  4. What a beautiful card! I love these flowers also and the purple is very pretty. Thank you for here inspiration and hope you have an awesome day!

  5. I love your card Therese, it is very elegant and lovely. I love anything lavender or purple, it just melts my heart. Your coloring is stunning!!

  6. This is another really pretty flower with unique leaves and lovely sentiments that are perfect for those sentiment strips we love to use. Your card is absolutely beautiful with its bold purple flowers!

  7. I always love how your cards turn out. I love how you did the background. I love flowers and flower stamps but I never seem to use them. Not sure why. I have quite a few, a lot of them by Altenew.

  8. This card is so beautiful!! I love the pretty colors you chose to use and the lovely way you stamped the muted flower on the background.

  9. Very lovely. Beautiful stamps. beautiful coloring. I love the idea of the same stamps in just black and white in the background, as well.

  11. It’s so difficult not to keep repeating myself in response to your creativity, but this card is beautiful. No doubt the stamp and die set is beautiful, but it’s your amazing skills that bring it to life and enables us to learn from you. Thank you. It’s always a pleasure watching.

  12. Thank you for an informative video. It was great to see you colouring in real time at the beginning and I appreciated the demonstration of the tip-to-tip technique with the pens. A beautiful result.

  13. Hey Therese, I love the shades of purple you chose. That little bit of card stock behind the flowers do make them stand out more. TFS.

  14. I really enjoyed your video of the anemones and leaves today – they are a beautiful flower and like all Altenew stamps, beautifully represented in their stamps. Watching you colour and the resulting card you create is wonderful therapy!

  15. Purple with a touch of yellow! such a great choice for coloring these amazing flowers with! And your layout is absolutely gorgeous too!

  21. What a beautiful card, I love those purple colour but I agree with you the darkest one is my favourite too. I have enjoyed seen those marker in action. I noticed that they blend nice and easy. I will try your idea with the garden treasure stamp and die set that I have from altenew. Thanks for your time and kindness sharing your projects. You are a true inspiration 😊🌹🌹🌷💐🌹

  22. Hi Therese
