Beautiful set and the perfect way to kick off the month of March!

Karen Corbett

Love your card and tag, Melis. You've incorporated so many goodies I'm going to have to take another look!! The 'patchwork' flower and the mutlicoloured "friend' sentiment are so much fun!!

Linda Hopton

Oh my gosh what a cool idea! Thanks so much for sharing!!

Diane Jaquay

This is so creative and FRESH, love it!!

Bobbie Duran

Paper-piecing is back! I have not done that in a long time. Your cards are lovely and I need to revisit my stamps and to some piecing myself.

Judy F.

Oh, Melissa, you never cease to amaze me with your lovely designs! The unique flowers you've designed are absolutely beautiful. Kudos for working your magic again. Thanks so much for sharing such wonderful inspiration!

Jodi e

Oooooh and aahhhhhh and I want to try this idea though I didn't have this die or stamp. Lovely!

Nancy Penir

Well Melissa, this is a perfect way to use this stamp. Perfect papers, perfect colors, dies, textures and embellishments. Simply perfection!


Your card and tag are just beautiful. Any tips on your paper piecing technique? I wouldn't have a clue how to start. Yours seems to match so perfectly. Did you use only scissors or is there a die? Thanks for your wonderful creations today.

Ah-MAZ-ing! So in love with this project Melissa! Can't wait to create my own version of this - just realized I don't own the die set (HOW did that happen?!) but LOVE it!


You are always such an inspiration! Love, love, love this card - for some reason it reminds me of my old "holly hobby" days. Only much more sophisticated. :-) Stunning!!!!!!!! Your eye always seems to envision the perfect die cut to use to embellish with and reflect the nature of the project

What a wonderful card and tag! Love the paper pieced flowers! Just so beautiful!


I agree winter has been long and I'm ready for spring! Your sweet card and tag have put me in the mood for pretty blooms!

Diana K

So creative! You are NOT a lazy crafter, that's for sure. The detail in every one of your projects is totally amazing. Love this.


What a simply fabulous card! The colors are so pretty. The pieced flower is eye-catching and I can't see anyone doing it as beautifully as you. I love what you are doing with the vintage trim and the Lovely Layers dies.

Nancy G.

LOve the quote and how it was such an inspiration for you.


Very inspirational, thank you. I will be re-creating your design this weekend.


I love how you paper pieced this flower! I would have never, in a million years, thought of that. It's so lovely!!!


Betsy, your work is always such an inspiration to me! What an incredible amount of work went into this piece, the paper piecing on both your designs is perfect. I love your use of felt letters for "Friends" and especially your use of Lovely Layers dies to add dimension to the tag. Thanks you for sharing your talent with us yet again!


Beautiful Melissa! And I loved the inspirational piece you used - why? I doodled a rose with three leaves several weeks ago on a piece of scratch paper - it looks so much like this. I've been thinking about Zentangles, doodling and watercolor lately. Oh the places we go when we create :) Your pieces always inspire me - thank you. : )

janet wilson

wow, incredible design and beautifully made :)

Billie A

Oh my love the colors and all the details. How time consuming but so worth it. I love the card and the tag. Not just another tag but an awesome TAG. Love it, love both.


Love, love, love how you pieced together the flower!! BEautiful!!

Kathryn B

I just love the paper piecing with this flower! I have to pull out my stamp and give this a try. Thanks for the inspiration!

Renee VanEpps

This is just too cool! I love the paper pieced flower, and the rainbow-ish sentiment is amazing!
