Lots of Lavender for a Lovely Card

Today’s card was made by the lovely and very talented Debbie Catlett, of Chattanooga, TN. Debbie is a member of my Candy Hearts team. This was a card she made for this month’s Creative Challenge at our March team gathering. She used the Lot of Lavender stamp set (available free with a $50 order only through Saturday!) and a piece of Petal Garden Designer Series Paper to create this beautiful card. Debbie always adds a little something to the inside of the card as well.

Magical Mermaid Swap Card

I recently came across this card made months ago by Caitlin Jones, one of my very talented Candy Hearts team members. I realized I never shared it and thought you’d like to see it. She used the Magical Mermaid stamp set and the Hexagons Dynamic embossing folder to create this beautiful birthday card. The Shimmery White card stock takes the watercoloring beautifully. I think it looks like the mermaid is looking through an old stained glass window underwater.
