  1. Adorable cards and fabulous colors! Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. Sue D on said:

    I like the bright and cheery colors.

  3. Donna Goggin on said:

    All your cards are beautiful. On the first one I really like how you used the sentiment stamps for 2nd generation stamps to create a cool background. The 2nd card the words thank you are just barely visible. Cool idea! On the 3rd card I like the watercolor background. It makes the flowers pop.

  4. La’Nay Johnson on said:

    Mayline, your cards are beautiful. I like that you used the sentiment on your first card to create your background. So much inspiration- thank you.

  5. Beautiful cards! Love the background of your first one with the words. Beautiful idea with the gorgeous flower!

  10. Susan O'Halloran on said:

    Three beautiful floral cards! my favorite is the dahlia bouquet card with the color outside the flowers. Such a clever twist on a floral card and really eye-catching!

  11. Mary Holshouser on said:

    Love the different techniques – the stamping uncolored
    on the colored background, the flower that looks like
    no-line stamping, and the colored flowers on the
    last. Thanks for sharing

  12. Joyannie on said:

    Love your layers of details embedded and deployed into life…I am INSPIRED

  13. Linda F on said:

    Gorgeous cards. Especially the coming up dahlias – your beautiful watercoloured image just pops.

  14. Gorgeous cards!!!
    Peony Duo and the new layering coverplate dies are my fav!

  15. Loved your color choices today. I have to try that. I really liked the one where the image was not colored and the other stuff was. And then the words popped up!

  16. Such a wonderful job you did with the new goodies!

  17. Angie McKee on said:

    Your Dahlia Bouquet card is spectacular! It looks so awesome leaving the stamp uncolored with the bright, vibrant background!

  18. Dana M on said:

    Lovely cards! Beautiful water coloring – soft yet vibrant.

  19. Jen K on said:

    Fantastic watercolor background on the second card. Your first card looks like a botanical print with the sentiment repeated that way – very nice!

  20. Patti Bailey on said:

    Really really pretty cards!!

  21. Bertha on said:

    Lovely cards Mayline. I love the way you coloured the background of the Dahlia bouquet card but left the flowers white. That and the Coming up Dahlias card are my two favourites. I have seen a number of cards using the Coming up Dahlias stamp set today but none have used the sentiment in the background as you have. A really lovely technique having that subtle wording repeated on the card. Love it! I’m going to try it.

  22. Cynthia Cole on said:

    Your watercolor dahlia card is my favorite!

  23. Really beautiful cards! Love the colors you used

  24. STUNNING WATER COLORING!!!! LOVE EACH of your cards, Mayline! You should give lessons on Water Coloring!!! WONDERFUL WORK!!!! 😉

  25. Brandi R on said:

    Beautiful cards. Fantastic watercoloring. Love these ♥

  26. becab33324 on said:

    Gorgeous cards! I love the first card’s design, using the
    sentiment as a background. I love a scripty BG like that.

  27. Dee Earnshaw on said:

    such lovely summer cards – thanks for sharing:)

  28. amyrmccue on said:

    How cool to leave th flowers white and go for the bold background!

  29. Al you Card Creations are Amazing!! love the color choices and I want to thank you for sharing you amazing Work!!
