In the Bag - Verve/Winnie & Walter

Hi, Friends......

I am back with another installment of cards from my cardmaking frenzy....and this time I have a kettle of couple of tea-themed cards for you. As I mentioned, I got waaaaaaaaay ahead of myself by making tons of cards. I didn't want to lose my momentum by stopping to blog them and so now it is catch-up time!!! Eeek! :)

I have been super-inspired lately by three different challenges. Check out the links for all the info on entering!!!

1. 2017 Spring Coffee Lovers Hop (ends Mar. 31)

2. Verve Stamps Rise and Shine Challenge (ends Apr. 17)
Julee has this wonderful Rise and Shine digital FREEBIE available for download only through April 17.

3. Winnie & Walter March Color Challenge with Heather H. (ends Apr. 7)

You can see why I got so inspired that I didn't want to stop making cards and get them blogged????!! :)

NOTE: I have grouped many of my cards together so my blog doesn't have an endless stream of cards around the same theme. I am devoting my blog posts to one of the cards in each group and including smaller shots of the others...which I am posting separately on my Flickr account to enter into these challenges.

I used another of Julee Tilman's awesome images from her Rise and Shine digital set. This one is tea-themed. So happy she included this in her set because I LOVE tea (all kinds) also! On this one, I again used my go-to Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Audrey Cutaways and Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die sets to cut the pierced rectangle and scalloped panels. The little tag is from the Katharine set, too. All coloring was done with my Spectrum Noirs. I finished it with a sweet little pink tie on the tag. I absolutely LOVE the soft colors on this card!!

Here is another card using the same digi sentiment that I will post on Flickr with more info.

Hope you liked my cards and that you will check in often over the next few days to see the rest of my cardmaking frenzy creations! :) Thanks so much for your visits and your kind comments!!!

And for my fellow Whovians......



  1. I love the pretty color palette!!Your cards are beautiful!!

  2. Ooh, I love that cute little gray kitty in a cup, and the gray tones combined with pink and yellow! I am so inspired by your pretty cards that I may have to print out another sheet of those digis myself. Popping the sentiment on a tag is a great idea...and one that I will steal (oh yes!)

  3. Oh how wonderful, really rocking that set!

  4. This is SO cute, Janis. It's absolutely LOVELY!
