NEW PB&J Video

October 28, 2015

Our designers are getting ready for winter with snowy stamping this week! Join us for inspiration featuring our newest collections Winter Romance and Especially for You 2015.


Are you ready to stamp and paint?


The beauty of nature as shown in our new transparent sets, 30-320 Spread Cheer and 30-322 Joy to All, is a perfect match with a free-flowing watercolor background.



And who said snowflakes had to be white? An unexpected color choice makes our new Creative Dies, 51-177 Snow Time, pop!



Watch directly on YouTube HERE.

BONUS! Here are a few variations using this same stamping technique.

    Love the water coloring on these beautiful cards. The colored snowflake is a nice touch and I can see using this on small gifts instead of a bow. Thanks for the idea!

    Thanks so much for the inspiring and oh, so helpful video! I called some friends immediately to tell them to look on the blog for it. They had been here on Monday and we were creating cards using watercolor and I knew they would want to see it. I appreciate your talent and your ability to teach in the videos. All the cards are just beautiful and I will try to create some winter scenes soon. 🙂

    Just gorgeous cards! Thanks for showing the how-tos in the video. The sunsets here in Texas have been extra pretty the past few days and I was actually just wondering if I could try to capture them with watercolors, and you’ve shown me how with the video!

    Jill, All of your cards are inspiring. May I ask if you can suggest the least expensive way I can have my cards copied? I’d like to make some to give as gifts, but the cost can prohibit me from ordering as many as I’d like to give. Thank you for all your creative ideas.

    Hi Jill,
    Is there a video for the green trees card you created in this post? (Or a similar technique)?
