Watercolor Wonder Cards...Round 1

When I saw the Watercolor Wonder Designer Note Cards in the new Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog, I instantly fell in love.  That usually doesn't happen for me.  I'm just not drawn to kits or pre-made items.  It's just me.  I like all the creativity involved in card making, from start to finish.

Still, I bought them.  They are nice.  Twenty cards, five designs, so four of each design.  I hope to bring you more of these, but here are the first five I've made.

This one features the new set So Very Grateful.  I used this in my previous post, using the chalkboard technique.

I think this one is my favorite, using Delicate Doilies.  Imagine all the color combinations possible!

The sentiment here is from Regarding Dahlias.

No Stamping here!  Just punches, sewing and the "love" from the Expressions thinlets.

I added the background stamp Hardwood as a subtle background.  Then, topped it with the pine from Lovely As A Tree and the sentiment from Truly Grateful.  The stitching is a triple zig-zag stitch...very prominent!

I purposely kept these CAS and easy to mail.

So, which one is your favorite?
