Make It Monday #196: Colorful Card Corners


 Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and creative corners

I actually do this technique myself a lot. I have always been a fan of corner embellishments!
It is time for me to get started on Valentines cards and treat boxes for my missions sales.
I was going through my small stash of Valentines stamps and found my With All My Heart Stamp Set. It has that sweet 2 step corner flower! 
As the late ESPN Sports Center talent Stewart Scott would have said:


Perfect for this challenge!!!

I had already started stamping when I remembered that it needed some watercoloring around the flower.
I was too lazy (and too busy!) to start over with watercolor paper, so, I pulled out something I haven't used in YEARS!
Chalk. I was able to chalk around the image and gave it the same feel as Danielle did with water color!!!
Booyah! Again!

I just went right ahead and made it into a Valentines birthday card with February Birthday Classics!

I need to make a few more of these.

Thank you for looking at my blog!


  1. Absolutely gorgeous! Anyone would love to receive this card.

  2. How come I don't own this set? So, are the three flowers one stamp and then you added leaves where you wanted to? And how come I don't see a dotted heart outline image in the set? Love the card you made and think that you are very clever for having thought of chalk (something else I don't own)!

  3. Chalk! Ooh, that is a great idea for those who aren't into watercolor. Genious! Your card is beautiful.
