Betsy, your cards are stunning. I like the idea of using a brayer on the die before embossing and using the backside of the stamp to look like watercolors. The last note set is amazing. Very artsy looking.

Betsy, all your cards are lovely. The first one is so rich in color. Thanks for telling us how you used the brayer on the die for your second card. That is a great tip. Now I will dig up my brayer. I hope I remember where I have it stored. :)

I love the colorful hills! Your artistry with patterned paper is amazing. ;)


Betsy, I usually am not a "Halloween" card the fall theme more, but your Mr. Bones card with the Take Three die is the absolutely most adorable creation ever! I just smile every time I look at it...even showed it to my husband! Thanks for a great month of new and fresh ideas.

Oh Betsy, your cards are stunning as always. I love the subtle rose stamping you included on the "chocolate" card and that fun reverse-stamping "watercolor" technique is awesome! It really does have a rustic/artsy/country flair that I adore. Just fantastic.

Absolutely gorgeous Betsy. The countryside patchwork is genius. Love all your cards they are so inspiring.


Oh, I LOVE the blue card set... what a good idea to stamp the background as your filler first - it turned out pefectly! You're always SO clever, I tell you!!!

Carol Ann Ater

Your card creations are always so outstanding and i always look forward to seeing more and more from you. thank you for being YOU!

Jill Norwood

Love all your projects as always! Love the card set made with the sunflower bouquet - it looks fairly easy to replicate and I may try it for a set of thank you cards to give my son's teacher....your cards and projects always inspire me so much! Thanks for another great round of release projects! :)


Lovely projects! I especially like your texture with the herringbone impression--inspired!

Mendi Yoshikawa

Stunning as always! I love them all, but that first one with the rolling hills of patterned paper is so yummy--I adore the colors! I also love your take on the chocolate bar paired with the soft roses in the background. :)

I am truly, madly, deeply in love with your first card! The gradation of color in the patterned paper hills, the trees overlapping the house image, the herringbone background - such wonderful details that stole my heart! Thanks so much for sharing!!! (I pinned it so that others might find you and follow along.)

Melissa Phillips

Sigh....your cards are just the sweetest most beautiful things err!


That first card made me actually say wow out loud! Stunning! I love them all!


Betsy - Love all of your cards. Can't decide which is my favorite - I think all of them. I really like your little note card set - so very pretty. Love it that you used blue - my favorite color.

Betsy, your cards are so gorgeous and inspire me to try to recreate the effect. Do you have a video or tutorial for the embossing with die technique? I would love to try that out. Thanks, Amy

Lisa K

Betsy, you never cease to amaze me. The blue sunflower card is simply stunning. It is so simple yet "meaty" with the herringbone texture and subtle distressing. Stamping with the back of the sunflower stamp is perfect. I like how it doesn't exactly match up. Thanks for sharing your amazing talent with us.

Deborah R.

Just lovely! How do you do the embossing with the die? I have this one ordered and can't wait to try it!


THAT is lovely! how original and breathtaking! you are so inspiring!
