Watercolor Crayons and Watercolor Pencils

Due to unforeseen problems with our supplier for Watercolor Wonder Crayons and Watercolor Pencils, we have decided to discontinue these two products.

Watercolor Pencils (item 101879) and Watercolor Wonder Crayons Brights Collection (item 119804) will no longer be available, effective immediately.

But… We still have the remaining collections of the Watercolor Wonder Crayons available to order. The Subtles (item 119802), Neutrals (item 119805), and Regals (item 119803) Collections are only available while supplies last. Get ’em before they’re gone!

And last but not least here is a card for you….using More Mustard!
The stamp set is World Treasures and the design is a layout I saw on Pinterest.
I liked to way it was different from a “regular” fold card.

All Things Bright & Beautiful

This is one of my favorite songs. It just makes me happy. I also love the James Herriot book series that started with this title. If you love animal stories you will enjoy these books. And it comes in Kindle and Nook…I might have to re-read them on my Nook.

The cards I have to share today are BRIGHT. I have seen the Swallowtail Butterfly stamped so many times and in so many different ways. It is very versatile.

I decided to go simple and colorful.

I stamped with versamark on Basic Black and heat embossed in all the bright colors of embossing powder we have: Tangerine Tango, Pool Party, Melon Mambo and Wild Wasabi. It makes for a striking set of cards. Just right to pack up and give to a friend. I found these bright fabricky? envelope bags that will hold at least 8 cards and envelopes. A butterfly gift that someone will be getting soon….

Happy Easter to everyone!
