Create Together!

I am very pleased to be a guest in a crafty collaboration called Create Together with Marcie Sharp on her blog today. She just happens to be my very talented daughter and has been crafting for many years - I'm so very proud of her crafty accomplishments!!

Marcie sent me this beautiful inspiration photo for us to work with - I absolutely fell in love with it!

I definitely used the colours and glitter to create my card and I pulled out my Vintage Linens Stamp Set by Papertrey Ink (again - I can't get enough of those flowers!)

Embossing the images with white embossing powder is always a great beginning when water colouring.  The watercolours stay where you put them - within reason of course - and the end result is so pretty!

I die cut the images after embossing and watercoloured with my Zig Real Brush Markers. I added some gold glitter in the middle with a gold Wink of Stella pen.

Using Mama Elephant Madison Avenue Frame Tags Creative Cuts (what a long name……) and DCWV Mat Stack glitter brights & neutrals, I die cut a frame from the blue glitter cardstock.  I also die cut the frame using the gorgeous Papertrey Ink Gold Luxe Foil Patterned Paper Collection.  - it is so shiny and…..Gold!!

I inlaid the middle panel of gold stripe into the blue glitter frame and adhered it to my white cardstock card base.

I stamped the sentiment, from Papertrey Ink Choose Joy stamp set onto the die cut tag and popped it up onto the gold striped cardstock.  I popped up the flowers and added ribbon and some pretty gold glitter baubles to finish my creation.

Thank you for visiting today - and get out those water-colours and play!!


  1. Love the gold and blue accents!!! Stunning work, Bonnie!

  2. I love this card! Such a pretty interpretation of the inspiration picture. Thank you so much for cardmaking "with" me!

  3. Bonnie what a pretty card for the inspiration! I love those flowers too, why haven't I bought them yet--lol! You tie the most perfect bows. I could use a few lessons. Isn't it great that MRcie started doing Create with Me?

  4. I have just come over forum the PTI Forum to agree with you about the spelling of Saviour....I cannot, ever, use that spelling - already have one verse with it and will never use it....I do hope that the rest of the series gives us useable words....although I am a calligrapher and can write any word I want where I want (and do)....I do have a little feeling that they could have offered 'our' spelling as well.
    This is a beautiful card - I, too, love the Vintage Linens - love your colouring....much prefer the card above with your peonies than the PTI version.
    Blessings to you and yours from Northern Ireland
