Yay! It’s time for another 3D floral to add to the stash….  but first, did you know

that this is part of a Hop celebrating a new release from Altenew and if you are hopping along you should have arrived here from NENETTE’s fabulous Blog!

  1. Therese your tailor-made paper is gorgeous – LOve that fantastic sentiment die and your choice of navy today! But you HAD ME with the next background die I INTEND to make my own! GAH! it’s gorgeous!
    Okay… off I go to watch your magic happen… xx
    =]

  2. Beautiful cards Therese – LOVE the water colour paper your created. (It’s on my “to do” list for the weekend). I had no idea about the 3D flower class at Altenew – sounds wonderful 🙂

  3. Fabulous background on the first card—the dotted starburst pattern adds a subtle but super fun texture/detail. And I absolutely LOVE the watercolored cardstock you created and your beautiful color combo!!!

  4. I love how you combined the soft pinks and blues in a way that’s very modern. Thank you for taking the time to share your project!

  5. What a wonderful 3D flower with your combination of colors and those pretty blue leaves! Great idea to make a watercolor background while you were at it, and that card is beautiful too!

  6. Your cards are gorgeous Therese and I love that you used the same colour tones in both. Another great release to tempt me with…and believe me, I am tempted.

  7. Both cards are beautiful and I love that you created your own background paper. it’s subtle and beautiful and worked so well for both cards. The Dotted Starburst cover die and the Open Blooms floral die are my two favorites from this release. I think the layered floral blooms look great in any paper but there is something very special about them on a hand watercolored paper! 🙂

  8. A couple of beauties, Therese … don’t the pink and navy make a wonderful combination … fabulous with the dotted texture and bold sentiment … and so lovely on that gorgeous dimensional bloom! Hugs, Anita 🙂

  9. Fabulous cards, as always! Love to watch your videos, Therese – always worth it. Thank you so much for sharing your talent! Hugs

  10. Your hand painting colors is dreamy! Love the 3D bloom with the navy leaves! Great pop to accent the gorgeousness of it!!

  11. Gorgeous card, Therese. The Open Bloom 3D die is my favorite from this fantastic release. I also love your card using the Dotted Starburst Debossing die — guess I need that one, too!

  12. I love your work; you make everything look effortless and you are not afraid to use pastel colors. You are so inspiring. TFS!

Thanks for visiting! I'd love to hear what you have to say.
