Happy Saturday, peeps!  Got a busy day planned, so this will be quick!  I am using the Freshly Made Sketches for a birthday card…here’s the sketch:
And here’s my card:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Violet Birthday Stampin

I used an older Flourishes set, stamped it in Stazon on watercolor paper and colored it with Wisteria Wonder, Elegant Eggplant, Garden Green, Pear Pizzazz and a little Old Olive:


It’s been a while since I colored anything this large, I really enjoyed it.  Since the image was fairly large, I made a custom-sized card as well as an envelope to match (which I forgot to photograph!!!).  That Envelope Punch Board makes creating custom envelopes a snap!  I used some retired Wisteria Wonder DP as well as some older SAB ribbon.  Some pearls finished it off.  Thanks for stopping by today!  And be sure to stop by tomorrow for my Paper Players creation!




  1. What a lovely card, LeAnne! That image is beautiful and your coloring is perfect! Looks like Cassidy wants to take after Grammie!

  2. Gorgeous card! Your coloring is beautiful. And it looks like Cassidy may follow in your footsteps!

  3. Beautiful card! I can't wait to see the violets in the yard. We still have dirty snow.
    Love your little artist. She is so into what she is doing.
    Happy Saturday!

  4. Your violets are beautiful--can't wait to see them here in real life! It's been a long winter, and we still have a lot of snow on the ground along the road and in the woods.

  5. PRETTY violets LeAnne, and great coloring too!

  9. Sigh. I'm really gonna miss Flourishes. This set is one I'd have loved to have, but didn't act on fast enough. You've done beautiful justice to it! Maybe we'll be seeing flowers like this soon enough in our gardens, eh?

  10. I LOVE that stamp! Do you ever sell your used one's??

  11. A beautiful card! You mentioned envelopes...what paper
    Do you use? I like Paper Source text weight but would like something a little heavier.

  12. LeAnne, this is absolutely stunning!!

  13. Wow, LeAnne, this is gorgeous! Your coloring of this beautiful image is fantastic! Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.

  14. So, so pretty LeAnne! Your coloring is always so gorgeous! I wish I could color like you!

  15. A fresh and pretty card! I love the quick and simple sketch they offered up. Sometimes you need to go quick and easy. Remember when all those big stamps were the rage? Now they seem so awkward to use, but you've done this one proud.

  16. Oh LeAnne, this card is beautiful! Those violets look real!!!!! I just love it! Cassidy can come color with me anytime! We would have fun! XX

  17. Beautiful! I'm so wanting to learn to watercolor with my blender pen and aqua pen~ Such a lovely card~
