Tender Thoughts from Eureka! Stamps

Hello!  Hope you are having a better than average day today!

Eureka! Stamps has a wonderful line of stamps called "Tender Thoughts"  These images are a set of 3 that work together.  The stamps can be purchased individually and used separately or together.
 Today, I am showing you just one part of the set, I have used "Butterfly & Sunflower" (#20801) on 2 different cards.
This image from the set can be used as a "stand alone" image or when used with the "On My Heart" (#55901) it would be used as a layer over the "On My Heart" image.  The third part of the set is a sentiment for the inside of the card.

These Tender Thoughts sets are very versatile and absolutely beautiful.
For both these cards I stamped onto watercolor paper and colored with watercolor crayons.

I used the "out of the box" technique to cut the purple image. 
You can find a couple great tutorials on my fellow design team member, Roxie's blog (Here or Here)
She does a great job of explaining 2 different ways to achieve this look.

The sentiment is "Just a note" (#6505) also from Eureka! Stamps

On this 2nd card I added a little "Niji Pearlescent Watercolors" that gives the butterfly some shimmer and shine.
I decided to make this card simple, I cut the image to size and rounded the corners.  A simple but beautiful card, ready for any occasion. 

To see this "Tender Thoughts" image and all the others that Eureka! Stamps has to offer pop into the shop, click on the "go shopping" link at the left side of the page and then the "Tender Thoughts" link.  There are several different sets, one more beautiful than the next.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you enjoy my cards as much as I enjoyed making them.  Leave a comment if you wish.

Until next time, Happy Crafting!
