I have two cards to share today. It didn’t start out to be two but it evolved that way and parts of one are used on the other. This one started as a watercolor background on lightweight watercolor paper. After it dried, I die cut the image out of the background then used a slightly larger die to make the background opening larger. On the 5×5 ivory card front, I stamped the Vintage Border across the bottom, added a little color to the centers and used the Vintage Border Die across the bottom half only to cut the card edge. I made a few more of the borders on another piece of c/s, die cut them and added them under the frame and around the top of the sentiment tag.

A lot of times, when I have an image like this fabulous Porch image (designed by Dina Kowal) all inked up, I’ll stamp it more than once. Just in case something happens to the first or I want to layer for depth or to have one for later. This was the extra one and while it was sitting there, I thought I’d add a little color.  Then the narrow frame piece from the first card was added to see how it looked. For the die cut Vintage Border peeking out around from around the frame, I double stamped it; once w/ the Kpad and again w/ the black ink.  I scored a border on the front of the 5×5 ivory card.

From here hop on over to Connie McCotter’s blog,  I know she’ll have something fabulous to share!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

    Julie, Love the colors that you used on the porch. So striking! Woah, the 2nd card is so pretty, too. Just that little bit of color around the porch and the diamond boarder edge really sets it off! Thanks

  2. Beautifully done Julie…makes you want to crawl into the picture and just sit a while and consider God’s wonders….love it!

  3. Julie, your cards are so serene and peaceful–perfect for this set! I particularly like the more multidimensional look of the second card–it’s a wower! 🙂

  4. Love your cards! So soft & subtle! Thank you for sharing!!

  7. Hi Julie, What gorgeous cards. I love then both. I think I could sit there for hours.

    These are wonderful. The framing of the image is really stunning. The first one gave me the impression of looking out of a window on to the porch.
    Thaks for sharing

  13. Hi Julie~

    You are so talented! I love what you did with these cards. I also like to stamp a few of the same image for later. I LOVE the first card. The color is so refreshing…reminds me of water…perhaps a porch on a beach house. Who doesn’t feel restored in His presence when in front of His amazing, calming ocean? I love how you stamped the Vintage Border across the background…and thought to add a dab of color to each spot…it really pulls everything together. The die cut on the bottom of the card and around the sentiment is just perfect! And, I just love these sentiments with this set! I love how you popped the image of the card up…it made it look more architechtural. These are just amazing! Great job! Do you think I just love this? 🙂

    Thank you so much for sharing!

  14. I love that watercolor background you created and would love to know how you did it. The colors for the paper and your coloring are very pretty. That frame around is a great idea, and the double stamping of the border looks very pretty…very creative. Very nice cards!

    I am really loving this porch set. It makes the invitation to “stop” more inviting.

    So pretty and we need reminders of “Restoration” and sunshine. Our area and my home town (with a porch that I spent so much time on) will soon be under water, and probably gone forever. I need to be reminded of God’s love and plan and restoration during this time. Thanks!


  25. When I first saw this, I thought it was a photograph!!!! FABULOUS, Julie! You rock!
