    Another wonderful release to begin the new year, Nichole! I love the versatility of the Cover Plate: Butterfly. The design team has shared such amazing inspiration for this die. Petite Places: Home & Garden just melts my heart and calls to me! ♡

    Love the release, beautiful designs . Love to water color, but usually run in streaks as to how often I do it.

    I love to water color. I use it fairly frequently – at least several times a month. So quick, easy and beautiful!

    I love the look of water color but don’t use it on cards. I feel that I’m not skilled enough to use the technique…..

    Love all the awesome items in the new release! I love the look of watercolor but only tried a couple times. Others looks so beautiful but mine not so much!

    Liz Krumins says:

    I water colored for the first time since elementary school right before Christmas. I loved it! I was a little hesitant at first but I really enjoyed it and will be using it more on cards in the future. It’s my new favorite technique! I think I would have started sooner but knowing what to get and use was a little daunting. Real brushes vs. the water brush and so on.

    Debbie says:

    I have not tried the watercolor technique yet…. It’s on my list of “to do’s”….in my Papertrey Ink planner of course!!

  • 13

    Good morning. I love the watercolor look and have tried it myself. Although mine looks like I’m trying too hard (I am), I still love the look. I need to relax and play more.

    Laura S says:

    I’m just getting the courage to experiment with watercoloring… still stuck in the “has to be just right” mindset. Not so with watercoloring! I will keep at it – PTI’s products make it easy to take the plunge! (pun intended!)

    Lynne in NI says:

    My watercolour pencils are my go to method of colouring and definitely my favourite. Oh and it’s probably one of the cheaper methods too! I watercolour on most of my cards 🙂

    Barbara Schmidt says:

    I love the “look” of watercolor and try it on about 1/3 of my cards. However, I find I am not patient enough in letting everything dry. Vow to do better this year and try more water coloring.

    Donna Oates says:

    Lovely release for the first one of the new year! i don’t know which one I like the best, although the planner pages die will be helpful since I bought the planner this year! 🙂

    Donna Oates says:

    Forgot to tell you about watercoloring. I love the effects I get with watercoloring. I can’t tell you how much I use it maybe 1 in 10!

    Sadie says:

    I love watercolor everything but don’t use it as much as I like because I lack confidence in using it. Will definitely work harder at it because it really is such a nice look!! Great release!

    ALOC says:

    I use watercolors a lot… they make perfect backgrounds. I use them in almost every card I make these days.

    Jan Castle says:

    I am trying to learn how to watercolor, and have been practicing. Love the medium, but now that happy with my work yet. I mostly use dies, iris folding, etc. with my cards. Will keep on practicing!!!!

    Sharon H. says:

    Haven’t water colored in a while, but I love to do it. I find it relaxing and a very forgiving technique.

    Jackie W. says:

    I don’t do much watercoloring because I don’t have much time to create these days so when I do, it’s something other than watercoloring. Hopefully soon I’ll have more time and I would love to do more of it!

    Do I water color? I own watercolor supplies! I rarely use them but should probably give them some time. Love this release!

    Linda Grady says:

    I have taken an on-line Watercoloring class; but, have yet to experiment too much on my own. Looks easy; but when I get ready to start, I feel intimidated. Love the look of watercolor in other’s cards, though. Hope to conquer my fear – and very soon.

  • 33 says:

    I have not tried to water color yet but hopefully soon will learn this technique. I am still kind of new in the art of paper crafting and I have been busy trying to learn a lot of the basics. Loving it all so far! Always loved doing crafts in general but I think this will be my new love…lol

    Yay! I love all of them. They videos of the little coin purse made my eyes pop. Happy to see the use of lovely colors too. The designers have really made some wonderful creations and I can’t wait to use mine.
