Greetings In A Waterfall…Sneak Peeks…and News!


I know I’ve been a little MIA lately! The reason? Well, I lost a week being sick with some sort of flu bug…knocked me for a loop! When I don’t feel like stamping, you know I’m sick!
I’ve been busy making samples for CHA…

BECAUSE I’M GOING!!! woohoo!! Surprised smileOpen-mouthed smile
I’ll be helping Kelley (
Our Daily Bread designs) demo and make & take at the Spellbinders booth!
And I have a BIG surprise to share…Winking smile 

If you remember, back in December, I told you that Our Daily Bread designs had been chosen by Spellbinders to be a Preferred Stamp Partner company! I designed this set to coordinate with Labels 18!! Here’s  a sneak…. Exciting!!!

Labels 18 Sneak Peak set


Now, on to my card. I was asked by Papers and Pixels to do a guest spot. This is the card I designed for that, but they thought it was a little too involved and since I didn’t have step by step pics, they declined it.
(but I did do another card that will appear on Feb 15 Winking smile)

This is a sneak peek at a set coming in Feb. from
Mark’s Finest Papers.


And surprise, when you open it… it’s a waterfall card!

CCM MFP WF both watermarks

Here, I used the waterfall mechanism from Creative Cuts and More. I embossed the edges with Cuttlebug’s With Love embossing border and the center pull with Polka Dots.

What’s so cool about Creative Cuts and More is that everything comes perfectly cut and scored! This is Bazzill’s Pear Crush, Blackberry Swirl and Super Smooth White.

CCM MFP WF3 You need a strong adhesive, I used White Tear-able Tape, that stuff is great!



The DP here is Basic Grey Curio which is distressed looking on all edges. Obviously when you cut into the piece you’re going to lose some of that look, so… I just used a dark marker and some distress ink on those edges! I did the same to the sentiment piece to match. All images and ribbon/trim from Mark’s Finest Papers and the set is called Greet The Day With Gerber.

Thanks for stopping!

Fabulous card, Dawn! Love the springy colours as well as the waterfall mechanism on the inside. What a surprise when the card is opened!

Glad to hear that you are feeling better now. Hope that you have a wonderful time at CHA.

Wonderfully made Dawn, It has an elegant feel about it on the front and a fresh feeling about it inside, it is a feel good card. I really like your choice of colours too.
