All these cards are fabulous, Melissa, but the last is jaw-dropping gorgeous!

Patty O'Malley

Beautiful cards, Melis! My favorite is the one with the tag.

Donna M.

Oh these are just lovely. And I thought I didn't need the new dies... I do think you could convince me to buy anything Melissa! So pretty!

Deb Hudson

I really love the colors, patterns and the curve in the first card--the curve adds a layer of softness that makes me smile! The second card has a wonderful balance of color and feel. Your love of creating shines through!


My oh my, Melissa! Each card is a work of art! I couldn't choose a favorite if I tried. I love how you always seem to achieve such a soft, beautiful color palette. I could literally decorate a room around each one! Amazing...not that I'm surprised. ;)


P.S. Yay! You smooshed!! :)

Kay Miller

Larissa Heskett

OMG OMG OMG!!These are ALL BEAUTIFUL Melissa!!I CAN'T wait to see the rest of the Release!! THANKS for sharing and have a Fabulous Week!!! :-)


Your cards are beautiful. Such details and color! My fav is the smoosh technique that appears like watercolor - so beautiful!

So LOVE with each one..STUNNING!

I just love all of your cards. The Brushed Blooms set is beautiful. I am putting it on my wish list now! I especially like your last card using the Smooshed technique. I would vote for a second MIM showcasing how you stamped over the Smooshing. Was is just simple stamping or did you add water to the stamps too?


I always have to study your designs Melis, as you tuck so many wonder elements into each one. Today I love how you incorporated vellum into each. Am happy to see your smooshing technique in your third card. It is simply stunning!

Tammy Waschbisch

Breathtaking!!! Your cards are such lovely works of art, each one with so many details and fun elements added, but yet they blend so perfectly together. I could stare at your cards for hours, seriously! They are so tranquil, soft, and peaceful. Have a blessed day, Melissa! And thank you for sharing your talent!

WoWZERS! These are all so gorgeous! I am in love with the sentiments! great font and awesome sentiments! Your flowers are scrumptious!! TFS!

Nancy Guse

Oh Melissa, this is GORGEOUS!!! I love your smooshing technique and your flowers, all the vellum such goodness!!! Thank you!


goodness i would love to just quietly sit and watch your creative process. i promise, i would be quiet as can be! your cards are just really wonderful. thank you for sharing your gift!


It all came together beautifully with your unique style and the wonderful new Brushed Blooms. I love that you smooshed. You use tags in such a delightful way, and I always look for vellum on you cards. This stamp set was made for you - and you make this stamp set!


Love all of your work. They are so perfectly put together. That's where I fall short. How do you use the thin dies and get them placed on the paper to where the border is the same width all around. I have a problem every time I use one of the thin dies. Any suggestions would be a great help. Thanks


These are the perfect stamps for a touching card, aren't they? And that last card is just beautiful!

Thanks for sharing,

Joan VanCourt

Oh my goodness. So lovely. I just love those brushed blooms and what you did with them. On my list, along with the dies.

Kathie B

What a beautiful collection of cards! You are quite the inspiration today and have us a wonderful reminder that spring is just around the corner! Thanks so much!

Troy Louise

Everything is absolutely gorgeous! Love what you've done with all of the new goodies. The brushed blooms are really pretty. Thanks & have a wonderful day.
