Now that I've made all of the formal introductions, let's get onto the projects!

Working Out Card

Everyone always needs a little encouragement now and again. This card is a great way to let someone know you are thinking of them and cheering them on behind the scenes.


I stamped the mountain scene directly onto the white cardstock in shades of teal, layering all of the various building images Betsy included in her new set.


I heat embossed both the sentiment and a tiny moon to help accent the gold calligraphy ink I used for the stars.

Wonderful Thing Card

Sometimes with the more intricate dies it is nice to just keep things simple and let the intricacy speak for itself.


I die-cut the Cover Plate: Mountain Majesty from white cardstock and highlighted a few areas with Prisma glitter using a two-way glue pen.


The new Quoted: The Most sentiment fit nicely in the allocated area.

Psalms Card

The new Year of Psalms: July set is the perfect companion for the Cover Plate: Mountain Majesty die.


I sponged Spring Rain ink onto the white card base first and splattered it with a bit of water to get softer areas like this.


The main sentiment is heat embossed in white onto the kraft cardstock to give it some extra pop.

Betsy Veldman is joining me today, featuring Mountain Majesty.


Now if this card doesn't cheer the recipient, I don't know what would! From the beautiful rainbow to the calming mountain scene created by pairing up the Mountain Majesty stamp set and cover plate die, this is definitely a showstopper! The addition of the soaring birds included in the set is a great finishing touch and helps leaf your eye to the various elements.

The new Cover Plate: Mountain Majesty die is great for Christmas cards too. Pairing it up with elements like spruce sprigs and even a small snow covered house give the die a whole new direction. The light sponging of ink behind the intricate die-cut helps all of the details to pop.

The purple tones that dominate this card certainly reinforce the "majesty" portion of this product lines name. The contrast of the purples and oranges is simply stunning and a beautiful tribute to the verse.

Dawn McVey is joining me today, featuring Year of Psalms: July.


The watercoloring Dawn did here is so beautiful and really transforms the new Cover Plate: Mountain Majesty into a work of art. I love the way she left lots of white areas while painting so that it took on a more freeform, artistic look. The sunset poking up through the side openings is such a genius use of that space.

  • INK: Ranger Jet Black
  • PAPER: Kraft, watercolor card stock
  • DIES: Cover Plate: Mountain Majesty
  • OTHER: Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, water brush



The Mix & Mat: Postal dies were the perfect thing to pair up with Year of Psalms: July because of the size and scale. It allowed a bit of extra room at the top to frame out the fuchsia flowers.

YearofPsalms Quatrefoil1

One of the wonderful things about all of the Year of Psalms sets is that you can really adapt the sentiments for any recipient based on the other elements you combine with them. The new Cover Up: Quatrefoil is a great example of this. The vibrant colors watercolored over the embossed pattern are eye-catching and make a statement.
