Linda Gorman says
Your cards are beautiful! I can’t get enough of the Anita Jeram stamp sets! I love them all❤️ CCC is one of my favorite stamp companies! I love the Big & Bold too. I liked where your sentiment was on all three cards, but I liked the last one best! Thanks for a chance to win and sharing this great release❤️
Paula J Davis says
I always enjoy your sense of humor. It’s my jam? You always do a wonderful job on your cards. Not always into critters, but they turned out so cute i may have to change my stance on critters!
Maylynn Cupp says
I think these are the cutest stamps I’ve loved watching Kristina Werner watercolor these you did a beautiful job to. These stamps remind me of a storybook picture, thank you for sharing.
Cassie Martin says
I love the Big and bold line from Colorado Craft Company. The only problem is they aren’t in stores and I don’t have a card to be able to buy online, so I dont have any of them. I will find a way to get some somehow though. I think your cards turned out great. I dont know the correct way to pronounce macaroons either.
Linda K Sanders says
I love these stamps and I love the tip to use inks for coloring. I will try it
Wendie Morgan says

You did a fabulous job on your CCC cards, Cathy!!!! I am loving this WHOLE release from Colorado Craft Company this month. Thanks for sharing you talents.
Both cards are awesome. Thanks for the instructions on sentiment placement. Sometimes my cards look almost good and I believe you have solved one of the problems. Cathy I really enjoy watching your videos, not only am I learning how to prefect my own style, but I also enjoy your humor.
Belinda wash says

Colorado Stamp Company’s stamps, and your cards are gorgeous!
Liz KB says
Those are such cute stamps..you did such a great job explaining why you would place your sentiment in a different place. Thanks
Sharon Fletcher says
Amazing cards, amazing stamp sets!! Thank you for sharing the thinking about the sentiment placement!
Mesmerizing to watch you paint. Not too fussy that I feel like it is too above my skill level, but completely doable. Precious stamps. Those would make great Spring/Easter cards
Renae Rauenhorst says
Cards turned out beautiful.
Love all her stamps and your dies♥️
Sue Eichman says
I absolutely LOVE all the wonderful products and the video you share to illustrate technics and reasoning to make it all come together. Your vidoes are very helpful. PLEASE enter me in for the drawing with hopes that I might be the proud winner. Thank you <3
Connie I Hoffman says
OMG! I’m so addicted to these Anita Jeram releases! I liked the 2nd sentiment closer to the bunnies! I like the sentiment close but not tight! Great idea to use photoshop to help you decide! I’d love a video on that process!
Ruth Clay says
I love your style. I enjoy the fact that you are low key and give us permission to explore even if that means making bloopers. It’s ok to experiment and learn that differences can be good. Not wrong. All your cards were beautiful, but showing the different placement of the greeting made sense. I would not have thought it would draw the picture together.
Sharleen Burnett says
Your video encourages me to try water coloring.
Judy C. Peach says
How adorable those bunnies are. Great tutorial. The macaroons are edible. Like the pale colors. Thank you for your time.
Cathy schwochow says
These are really cute stamps and I loved how you used them in your cards!
Penny Klie says
Hi Cathy, Adorable cards… love your color choices… your joy of crafting always inspires me. Anita Jeram draws the absolute cutest images… been a fan forever.
Hope Donald says
These new stamps are amazing and as I was watching your video, I could feel my inner child being released and was overjoyed. Thank you for such a great video.
Thank you so much for the sentiment lesson! I struggle with that…. and I appreciate you sharing your knowledge. CCC is one of my favorite stamp companies….hope I win!
Jane Seeley says
As a former children’s librarian, this artist is a favorite! Just makes me smile. You make it look so easy!
Kim S. says
As usual, your cards are adorable and your placement insights are always wonderful. And SHOWING it, before and after, thank you. That was so helpful. I love Colorado Craft Company! Thanks for the opportunity!
Those bunnies remind me of the beautiful illustrations in the book about the the bunny with thew golden slippers. I love the cards you make, I may have to get the macaroon set. 🙂
Sue Ferguson says
Oh my goodness! These bunnies are just so gorgeous. and the thing I love is that you already have a scene set without any other masking and stamping. Fabulous!!
Cindi Johnson says
I love your cards and all the new stamps! I must disagree about the placement of the sentiment. When it is down that low, there is too much white space and emptiness at the top of the card.
Julie Weber says
Macaroons and bunnies, it doesn’t get any better than that. Beautiful cards.
Nessa Bridge says
You’ve inspired me to go play with my water colours again. Not done so for a long time. Thank ou. Love your style and always make me smile.
Rose Johnson says
How generous of you! Just tried to color the cupcake stamp which didn’t turn out too great! I need to try these little animals and see how I do! Would love any new stamps – big and bold has always been a fav! Thanks for opportunity to win!
Daniela Hutchinson says
Two beautiful cards. The new release is gorgeous. I always learn so much from you. Not sure if UK is allowed to enter the giveaway. I still wanted to leave a comment
Barbara McAlister says
Love! Love! The stamps and beautiful cards you made with this new collection. Thanks for the chance to win! I always enjoy watching your videos! Thank you for all the teaching you do in the videos!
Lauryne Cunningham says
Your cards are fantastic! The macaroons really pop against the black border and sentiment! Love those large images!
Susan McCrady says
I just recently found your channel. I do all my art stuff in the dining room too! Love your wit and inspiration!
Loretta Potz says
Your painting is beautiful. I’ve been trying but find it very difficult. The cards turned out great even without Photoshopping the sentiment.
Del Skinner says
Love what you did with the Macarons! And Your painting of the bunnies came out so wonderful! Just one question… Why move your sentiment? To my eye, and of course I know that is why you get paid the big bucks, (LOL 🤣), the sentiment could have been moved up just a touch. Not down. Definitely not in their faces.
Kelley Andersen says
Absolutely love love Love this new release! Your make it look so easy! Love watching your videos!!
Patti Chrouch says
Cathy, all of these new stamps are so cute and make me feel happy. You looked especially good in this video love the nail color! Macaroons are the coconut cookies. These are the French macarons.
Oh, those bunnies are so adorable! Love that sweet card, and watercoloring is kind of addicting, isn’t it?
Do you know what I truly appreciate about you? The fact that you give us all the confidence to step out of our comfort zones and try new techniques! Plus, you’re a hoot! Thank you!
Angela Brennan says
Hi Cathy, my favourite stamp in this release is the pile of macarons. I love those little gems made of ground almonds so much that I learned to make them to perfection…waiting crinkly feet to form and all. I can see myself use twinkling H2Os to paint them to give a shimmer….ooh can’t wait. Love your videos and sense of humour…keep them coming
Deb Shaw says
Loved the stamp sets very much. I did agree, once it was demonstrated about sentiment placement! Amazing how it changed how you see it! I always enjoy your channel and have learned a lot from you!
I had ordered your Just Because and Friend dies and I love them! Use them a lot. Going to get a few more also! It’s so perfect that I’m sure no one notices mistakes/accidents!
I too have a sailor mouth and so do my kids! You should hear my mom swear! When my brother takes her out in public , he asks her to keep it under control…lmao! I know it’s nothing to be proud of, but if I hadn’t been raised 5hat way, my feelings would have been hurt many times in the field I worked in.
I’m a retired nurse (1 year) and worked in male prison for last 15 years. Had an inmate who would yell at me every day to suck his dick. Took it for many weeks and one day, I had had enough. As he yelled at me, I stopped turned around and said ” How about you suck mine, I’m always sucking yours”. The block busted out in laughter and never had a problem with him after that! Ha! Just a bit of sharing fir the day.
Again, thank you for giving so much
Beverly Rowan says
I am a children’s librarian and a card maker, and I love Anita Jeram’s soft, whimsical animals. I purchased one of her stamps from the first release by Colorado Crafts, and I would to add to the collection. Thank you for this chance to win them. Also, I love the simplicity of your cards with these sets.
Karin Hörman says
I would love a chance to win the stamps as I can´t get a hold of them here in Sweden.
Michelle D says
These stamp sets are so adorable and your painting was great! I agree with the placement of the first sentiment but I never would have thought to place it as close as you’re third example. Learned something new today! Thank you for sharing, you’re the best!
Your videos are always sweet, quirky & helpful! I love the watercolor look. How different do you think it would be to simply do it on 110lb cardstock? Thank you for your videos!
I have loved Anita Jerams images since I read her book to my children (Guess how much I love you), so to be able to stamp them is a dream come true 🤗
Maria Cordova says
Great cards as usual Cathy 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
Neysa Brooks says
Loved the water coloring of the bunnies…I prefer the placing of the sentiment on the first card, second card was ok, but third card…..frankly my eyes didnt care for that placement.
Donna M. says
Great cards & video Cathy! I know I spend too much time trying to get the perfect painting done. Simple looks so good & I’ll try to remember that! Love the new stamps (can you make one with the new baby set? Please?) Thanks!
Hi! I just love the Easter Bunnies!! They remind me of the old illustrator images….simple but lovely!
Patricia Gunn says
Your cards were so cute. Hope your back is feeling better. I saw that on Gina K’s Stamp n Chat on Monday night.
Elizabeth Challenor-Reese says
Beautifully water-colored cards!
Jan Eden says
Loved your cards in the video. Will have to get a few of these!
Rosslyn Pierce says
You did a wonderful job painting both cards. My favorite was the bunny card. I was very surprised how different the card looked with the sentiment placed close to the image,wonerful tip. Thank.
Linnie Mondon says
Great job on the watercolor painting and I really appreciated the lesson on sentiment placement. I must have that Happy Easter set. So cute.
sue crutcher says
Well, you have convinced me to start trying watercolor AGAIN!
The bunnies are darling!
Donna Francis says
Kathy, I love watching your videos – it gives my spirit a boost every time. And who doesn’t need a boost, right? You make beautiful cards that are simple and clean. I find myself overthinking card design and I need to embrace your methods. Thank you!
Kimberly Sheppard says
Great cards, really love these CCC stamps!
Okay-these are so doggone CUTE! Of course the macaroons just made me hungry for a sweet!
Your cards are so clean an beautiful! Thank you for sharing! I am definitely checking out Colorado Crafts- they are new to me!
Jan Eden says
Loved your cards!! You make water coloring look easy! Will have to get a few of these sets!
Lou-Ann Gumm says
I love the water coloring on the Happy Eater card. These are such a cute set. Inspired me to try this
Your painting is lovely and inspiring to me. Love those bunnies. The ice cream cone is also calling my name. CCC is just a great company. TFS
Jen Aultman says
Absolutely love the Easter card!!!
Deb Schwenk says
Your videos are wonderful, my favorite YouTube channel because I also craft at my dining room table!😄
I appreciate your humor and your skill.
Susan Bednarski says
Wow! I am new to making cards and and to you tube and have been watching your videos. I am 71 years old and have some distress inks. I am so excited to be able to use them for painting my stamps. Thank you so much for always sharing what you know. It is really appreciated, by everyone I am sure.
Love the watercolor looks! Also how is it that CCC is hitting it out of the park with all their new stamps each month!?!? Love love love them all! Thanks for a great reveal video!
Lori Spitzer says
Hi, Cathy –
I really love the Anita Jeram stamps from CCC. You nailed the description. They are both whimsical and charming. So dear! I would love to win either the AJ group or the B&B group. I will probably end up buying most of these anyhow in time. I left you a comment at the YT site below your video.
I hope you keep making videos. You’re so good at helping us crafters out here in the world to know how you make your design choices and we learn about color and placement from you.
Thanks and have a great day!
Lori S in PA
p.s. Had a fun Saturday last week watching you and Mr JL.
Debbie Bugh says
Cathy, I love your style. You are so down to earth and informative. I got into card making recently and have learned so much from watching you.
Thanks for all you do!!
Betsy Wise says
These are adorable.
Nancy Kolodziej says
I just love these stamps and the results you got from simple water coloring was amazing! I am in love with these sweet images and would love to win either as I am on a tight crafting budget and I want them ALL! Lol!
Thank you for your humorous and delightful video’s . I always have a great time watching you create.
Patricia Dixon says
Hello Kathy! Thank you for sharing your talent. I just adore the bunny card.
Jean Bronk says
Hello from Faribault. What an honor to be doing this reveal. I love the Anita Jeram illustrations. You were great in your recent live, although I watched the replay. Love your authenticity and grit to share frustrations with technology. I’m in the country with limited bandwidth and get unceremoniously dumped from zoom all the time. Keep those videos coming, I watch them all.
Sheila H says
I loved the video, Kathy. I am so afraid of water coloring, but you gave me some encouragement. I will need better brushes for sure. Great lesson on sentiment placement also. Thanks so much!
Love the explaination of where to place your sentiment, it really does make things come together nicely. Thanks.
Sharlini Nambiar says
Hi Cathy! Thank you for your latest clip. I absolutely love Anita Jeram’s artwork and your painting brings them to life. It’s very difficult to get her stamps here in Malaysia due to high shipping costs, so I just watch vids of people making cards with them. I don’t know if I am eligible for the giveaway, so if I am not, thank you for sharing your cards and the tip about sentiment placement.
Nancy Roth says
I love both cards! The bunnies are adorable. According to Master Chef, the main difference between macaroons and macarons are the main ingredient. Coconut vs. almond meal. Just FYI.
Nancy Pratt says
I love watching your videos. They are educational in a fun way. Your great keep it up.
Cathy Morris says
Ooo Cathy! Those macarones look yummy. Your watercoloring is lovely. Your Happy Easter Card is so sweet! Thank you for always teaching me/us so much!
You are so right about the distress inks being perfect for this type of stamp. I would have been tempted to use markers and that would have been too dark and solid. I have to remember to keep the colours simple. One ink for all bunnies and the basket was perfect! Thanks for sharing!
You inspire me to try painting. I love the look of watercolor but am intimidated. Love the stamp sets and hard to choose which to purchase.
Marlene Sundheimer says
Hi Cathy. Thanks for the card design tips re placement of sentiments. I have come a long way in my card-making designs and have had so much joy from creating simple, well-designed cards. BTW, thanks also for introducing me to ASMR. Learn something new everyday.
Denise Valdinocci says
Well I wrote a whole post and got involved in signing up for the newsletter I don’t think I posted my comment 🤦🏻♀️ I never thought about water painting with distress inks but I’ll sure try it soon. The cards as always were great and the placement of the sentiment strip is so helpful. I think we card makers have it
Drilled into us to stamp everything first, in case you mess up, we just don’t look at the reasons we shouldn’t. Thanks as always for sharing your talents with us.
Rose Lyman says
Please enter my name for the Colorado Stamp giveaway. Thanks to you Cathy for your inspirational video and the new tip you educated me with…using distress inks to water colour.
Ute Brakemeier says
I love how your cards turned out!
And I would be glad to win, because February, the 8th is my birthday (actually I’m getting 50 then).
But I’m not sure if you will send the stamps to Germany…..
However, keep it up! I especially like your sense of humor.
Best wishes from Germany,
Barbara Drake says
I loved your video, well actually I LOVE all your videos if I’m being honest! I especially liked the Easter card and never gave it a thought about sentiment placement, but I’m so glad you showed all 3 cards and how the last one just seemed to “fit” perfect! In one of your previous videos when you were using the “Debby” tool, I took advantage of your link and purchased one, and I’m so excited to get it. I’m getting to that age where I’m not as strong as I used to be, so this girl has gotta do, whatcha gotta do !!
Lynne Lugo says
I just can’t get enough of those bunnies–soo cute!! And the cards are adorable.
You’ve taught me so much Cathy-thank you.
Donna Dannen says
I enjoyed watching you paint with distress inks! And yes, the Colorado Craft Company is wonderful!
Julianne Karman says
I love the bunny card … liked card sentiment number 2 the best.
your macaroons made me hungry!!! Lol
Keep on crafting!!! Love your videos !!!
Beverly Gleeson says
Delightful video! The portion explaining sentiment placement showcasing three cards was very interesting. Add to that a chance to win stamps well, what a bonus!
Cindy Neander says
Enjoyed the video very much using the distress inks and watercoloring. You made it look so easy!
catherine A paul says
Watching you makes me believe that i could do some painting on my cards
Anne Kubik says
I love Thais new release!
Ann Marie Ruda says
Hi Cathy, Always love your video’s. I enjoy your humorous remarks.
Cute cards and I love Colorado Stamps, they are just so cute.
I always have problems with my word stamps on the front. Thank you
for the advice.
Pamela Umbarger says
Both of these came out so GREAT! the watercolor was perfect for the macaroons and the bunny scene!
Oh my word Cathy…Adorable!
P.S.I think the watercoloring is ideal for these gorgeous little works of Art! I think it adds that perfect little Storybook touch.
Thanks for Sharing 🙂 I squeal this release is so cute!
Marsha Freer says
Fabulous….love watching you create cards, Cathy! Thank you for the reminder that the Distress Inks can be used to create a beautiful watercolored image. I absolutely love the Anita Jeram images…they are all just so adorable!!
Lee Conradi says
I started out on my card journey about 3 years ago and didn’t know distress inks existed until a year later. I am now trying to do what you are doing with distress inks! I liked your painting of the bunnies; I never heard of the Colorado Card Co. before. There stamps are very sweet! Thank you Cathy.
Your videos are my favorite (well, also Catherine Pooler’s) because you both are so relaxed and don’t over complicate things. I also appreciate your design advice.
Tara S says
I absolutely love the rabbit card you made! I cannot wait to take a class with you in March, super excited. You inspired me to paint more. Have a great day!
Sue Harris says
Love both cards Cathy,
Jane Daniels says
Oh my goodness! I am rushing to dust off my mini Distress Ink cubes and fetch a glass of water and a brush. I had totally forgotten about painting with inks and watching your video reminded me of the lovely soft, under-coloured look you can get with them. Unfortunately I have none of these charming stamps to colour in, so I will have to search through my stash, but I do love that “Beatrix Potter” style of illustration – so innocent and nostalgic. Great job Cathy!
Judy Jones says
I love every new release! Talk about heart tug stamps….WOW. Thank you Colorado Craft Company for Anita Jeram!
Your work inspires me to try new things every time I watch you. Both cards came out amazing. I have never watercolored a card before. Now I can’t wait to give it ago. Thank you for all you do
I absolutely adore the bunny card! And the macaroon was perfect too!
Pat Bethke says
Great reveal. I used to show rabbits so I have an assortment of bunny stamps. I love all of Anita Jeram’s cute little animals. Thanks for sharing your cards, they’re sweet.
Jeni Jenne says
Thanks for the opportunity to win these fabulous sets! Love your channel and blog, Cathy!
Anne Henderson says
I learn so many helpful design techniques from you! I didn’t see what was wrong w/ the sentiment on the bunny card until you showed the other choices. Will the lessons stick? Who knows? Luckily, I can go back & re-watch your videos!
Mary Lindekens says
Completely in love with these Anita Jeram stamps. I feel like a kid again whenever they come out. I feel I am not an expert at coloring, but using distress painting on these stamp suit them perfectly. Subtle like the designs.
Laura L Carrasco says
I love how real you are with your crafting, Cathy!
Donna McNicol says
What pretty cards. I’m intimidated about watercolouring but watching you do it makes it all seem less intimidating. Thanks for sharing your cards and your insights to design. The sentiment placement was definitely more impactful when you nestled it next to the painting. Very cute stamp release.
Renee Carpenter says
I love this project, and I love these stamps! Great job Cathy!
Joannie Zummo says
Your cards were quick, easy and adorable . I love your design tips. As an auditory learner, every visual tip helps me in making better design choices for all my card making. Thanks, Cathy.
Lisa Sullender says
Love this illustrator and your painting was magnificent! I discovered distress ink painting a few months ago and made my Christmas cards with some simple ink painting so fun! Enjoy your videos thanks for inspiring!
Christie Brooks says
OMG! I can’t decide which ones I love more, the smaller it larger ones. I just got one the slimline card train…I know, always a little late to the party! You made the coloring look so easy with your helpful notes along the way. Have an awesome day!
Carol Schamerloh says
Loved your design advice! Thanks so much.
Love your videos and this card is ADORABLE!!
Great video, Cathy! Love the simplicity of using the distressed inks as watercolors. The Anita Jeram stamps are adorable!
I love watching your creativity, Cathy. You do make the watercoloring with Distress Inks look easier than I thought it might be…..definitely going to give it a try. I love your conversation with all of us who watch and always looking forward to seeing what comes next in the Craft/Dining Room:-) Thank you so much for bringing a little bit of sunshine into my life!
Sam Moore says
Coming to you from my sofa, slash, couch! One cool comment coming up….NEXT, from a midde-aged crafter in England!
I really enjoy your videos. They are organic, authentically you, and you’ve taught me more about design than I learned in my 3 years on a Graphic Deisgn course! So, thank you! My 8 year old daughter Grace is a huge fan of your videos and often pretends she is you with her very own YouTube channel! She would love to be in for a chance to win some of the bunny stamps.
Ps I have some awesome design ideas for dies I have designed, and would love to offer them to SSS. How do I go about doing that, please?
Ann Ito says
Love this new release! Enjoyed watching your video, as always! I really need to try more watercoloring, your cards are fantastic!
Jadin Howton says
Cathy, that was the best watercolor/distress ink demonstration. But, best of all are your design tips. I have learned so much from your design tidbits. I loved it when you were showing us how and why design matters. I appreciate your experience and knowledge.
Kelli Groves says
Thank you for breaking things down and making it seem so simple to make your cards! I so appreciate the way you share your design choices – and your mistakes as well! 😊
Erin Aulner says
Hi Cathy, thank you so much for showing us how to paint These beautiful stamps.
Renee Grevelding says
Watching your YouTube videos makes me so happy! Thank you so much for sharing your talent. Amazing cards!
Kerstin Starcke-Giese says
Thanks for sharing all this helpful tips and tricks along the way. I am learning so much from you, Cathy. Thanks to you, my sentiment placement is improving and I am finally rocking the clean and simple style. Well, at least not ALL of my cards look like a drag queen parade or a disco ball when I am done. 🤣 love from Germany, Kerstin
Debi Krampen says
Omg, Cathy! These cards are so cute! I am going to “dive in” and try to paint a card. You made it look easy. Thanks, great video!
Kim Taylor says
These are such cute images and your cards are adorable and inspiring! Thanks for all you do !!
Robin Ridpath says
Love you, your videos Cathy! I loved watching you paint with the distress inks, it gave me confidence to give it a go myself. I am off to buy the Easter set as soon as I’m done here. Thanks again for sharing!
Roxanne Tellini says
Good Morning! Cute, cute sets. Something I am missing from my stash is something for a “new baby” card. That family of bunnies gathered around the itty bitty is a great image. As for the the Big and Bold sets, I want to make a birthday card that says It’s Serbert Day? In-Cone-Ceiveable! (My best friend is a big Princess Bride fan). That waffle cone is Perfect!
Thanks for sharing your talent with us. 🙂
Mary Gilmer says
I love what you did with the Anita Jeram bunnys image. I would always put a sentiment in your first placement. Now, I know why it would be better to wait and place the sentiment later. And you made cards out of my two favorite stamps of the new Colorado Craft Company stamp release. I can’t wait to get some of them!
Elizabeth Eddy says
Cathy these cards turned out amazing!! I love the soft colors you achieved with the distress inks! These stamps are so beautiful! I’d love to win them amd try them out! 😊 Thank you so much for sharing and inspiring so many of us!!!
Cheryl McCann says
I love both cards but the Easter one is my favorite. I so love Anita Jeram’s artwork! I was a reading specialist and first encountered her work in the book Guess How Much I Love You. I had forgotten that she illustrated for stamps. The whimsical illustrations are soooo nostalgic. I’m so excited to try some of them. Loved how you watercolored with Distress Ink. I’m ordering the brushes you linked because I must try this!
Bonnie Isabelle says
Loved the video, (love all your videos)
The cards are so cute!
Thank you for introducing me to the Colorado Craft Company, I’m heading there to check them out as soon as I’m done here.
Barb Legassie says
Cathy, what an adorable card. Loved the soft Spring colours.
Star Picard says
Hi Cathy, love your YouTube channel and all your videos. The simplicity of you cards give me the confidence a beginner like me needs. Love the bunnies from Colorado Craft Company. In Canada we do not have access to many products from the US and the duty plus shipping makes most unaffordable. Thank you for all the Inspiration.
Rebecca N says
Oh my goodness 💕 Cathy you do an amazing job! I love watching your videos!! These bunnies remind me of “Guess How Much I Love You” book and fabric line (which my granddaughters love also). Thank you for ALL your inspiration and entertainment!
Rosamund Shellis says
Love your water coloured bunnies, ages since I used my distress inks to water colour but such a lovely, soft effect! Note to self – Use inks more!
Nora Nikolai says
Cathy, I love to watch your video’s. I learn so much. The color wheels and working with color has been most helpful. Also your sense of humor makes my day. Thank you!
Anya Toledo says
I just love all your videos! You are a fun, talented designer & card maker. I appreciate how real you are & that you show your “mistakes” so that we can learn from them. So nice to see someone who is transparent. I adore Anita Jeram’s artwork & use her stamp sets w/the little girls I nanny for. These new ones are just fabulous! Thanks again for your generosity!
Janice Harrison says
So so cute Cathy! I am intimidated by water color painting. I love to watch Kristina watercolor…she is a master.
But no offense, watching you watercolor is more inspiring. 😏 Not like “if Cathy can do it anyone can” but I just relate to you more personally.
I craft on my kitchen table (but we have decided to turn a spare bedroom into a craft room 🎉🎉🎉), I am middle age (what ages does that span anyway???I don’t plan on leaving it any time soon!), and a Midwesterner (spell check says that’s not a word🤔—MN is sorta Midwestern right??)
Anyway I feel like I am sitting across the kitchen table from you when I watch you craft….you make me feel that comfortable.
Oh, and I would love to win those stamps!😁
Marita Kasley says
Very cute cards Cathy! Will have to look into this company because this was the first time I have heard from them. Wondering if you could use colored pencils and Gamsol to get the same effect as using the Distress inks.
Linda S. says
Thanks for the video. I really enjoy your laid back approach to crafting. Your bunnies are adorable.
Christine Gehlbach says
You made the painting look so easy and the cards turned out so cute! Thanks for the inspiration and instruction.
Surekha Galagoda says
I fell in love with all the sets specially the sets with critters and most importantly I learnt a lesson on sentiment placementwhich is very important as I am a new bee.Thank you for your hard work. Stay safe and blessed
Karen Bliss says
Both of these cards are so sweet! My favorite is the Bunny Card, love watching your videos on YouTube.
Maria Pischke says
Good morning Cathy,
I discovered your videos on YouTube University a few weeks ago and OMG I so love your style of filming / editing …see what I did there…lol. I have been binge-watching you since then. My husband has even commented on your videos, which he has never done before 🙂
I also love the way you create your cards. Thank you so much for sharing your talent. And keep the little circle it’s nice to see your expressions and not just your hands.
I guess I should mention the giveaways. I would love to be entered for a chance to win.
Cathy – what a wonderful Reveal from Colorado Craft Co! I love all five sets! Look fun to color, & love that they can be used for a variety of occasions (except the Easter egg set). It’s always enjoyable to watch your videos! Oh….. macaroons (with two O’s) are coconut cookies that most often have a maraschino cherry on top. If you like coconut, you LOVE macaroons! Macarons (with one O) look kind of like small hamburgers – like the ones in the stamp set. Delicious, either way!
Anne G says
I love both cards! I think the macaron. card will be perfect for my twin grandkids birthday cards. It’s their favorite cookie!
Your videos are so real. I learn so much from you! Say warm!
Love, love, love your videos and your style!
Terry Wasson says
You make it look so easy! I love how the bunnies turned out.
It’s so helpful to see using distress inks to watercolor in action…the stamps are adorable!
Veronica Donnelly says
What a GREAT release! Big and bold is yummy and with Easter around the corner must have cute bunnies. Love new slimline macaroons!
Karen Kreun says
Love all the new stamps. I enjoy watching your videos for technique and inspiration. Fun
Linda E says
You make it look so easy. Thanks for all the inspiration and techniques.
Kat P says
I’m loving each one of your videos. You have a beautiful heart and personality it shines right through. Thank you for sharing your beautiful work, suggestions and of course all the time with video editing.
Crossing fingers for my chance at winning the new stamps. I love each one.
Gayle Chrvala says
So enjoyed your video and cards. These new sets are really great. Thanks for the chance to win.
Aloha Cathy! I enjoy watching your video. I love the simplicity of your cards but I especially like your sense of humor.🤣
Sheri Kempke says
Awesome cards and video. Thanks Cathy! I love Anita’s stamp designs, always so gorgeous.
Melodie Pellegrino says
Since the moment I first saw Anita Jeram stamps I fell in love. I feel about the same about you and your videos, I love the fact that you show your mistakes and show us all how to fix them. You do make me feel like it is doable to try anything. I love the feeling your video’s give me a vibe that we are sitting across from each other and just crafting. Thank you.
Judy Rutherford says
Cathy, I love watching your videos. You make me want to do more things that are “outside my comfort zone” because you say you’re not always comfortable – yet you do it and it looks great. The painting of the bunny scene was so good! I have purchased water color paints (and have yet to use them) because it scares me! I have distress inks and now I AM going to try this method. Thanks for making me a bit for confident! Best to you!
LeDonna MaCurdy says
I would LOVE these wonderful stamps!
Karen Rhoads says
I love how both the macarons and Easter bunny cards came out. You’ve inspired me to try my hand at watercoloring now. I don’t own any distress ink pads yet. What colors do you recommend I start with?
Debbie Strauss says
Both cards are adorable! Love your approach- it’s water color, we don’t have to be perfect
In love with the Slimline Macarons!! So cute and a fun card!
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Anita Jeram stamps…so cute! Can’t wait to get the new ones.
Your watercoloring is so nice too.
Karen Judy says
I love these new stamps and the cards you created with them. I find I shy away from water coloring because I feel inept at it but watching you color these has inspired me to give it a try. Thank you for your videos and your explanations.
Diane Dupont says
Those bunny stamps (& all the stamps from that illustrator) are just precious! Thanks for sharing! You did an awesome job bringing them to life! 😊😊😊
Mary Hauer says
Beautiful cards. I love watching you create.
Sharon Sullivan says
Love how you watercolor with distress inks and those little critters are the CUTEST! Thanks for all the inspiration!
Maureen Reiss says
Really Beautiful cards Cathy!!! Yes you should water color more!!!!
Carolyn Peters says
I just love the Anita Jeram illustrations! My first thought was “Hamburgers” when I saw the Macarons. Love them, too!

Beautiful images and I am so inspired by you and your painting. Thank you for the chance to win.
Carrie Arii says
Love the whimsical bunnies! And the macarons look good enough to eat! (BTW it’s Ron’s, not roons; macaroons are made of coconut). Always enjoy your videos and have learned a lot from you.
Heidi Vigneux says
I am so inspired by your cardmaking! I have been following your You Tube channel for a while. I am a beginner cardmaker and love your techniques and style. Your detailed videos make it less intimidating for beginners like me! Very easy to follow…clean, simple and always stunning!
I would love to get the bunnies. They are sooo cute. Thank you for your video and the design lesson! Contemplating still about the text. It is really astonishing, how different the impression is.
That you Cathy, for the time and effort you put in the videos.
Crafty wishes and take care
Chris Betlock says
Love your encouragement to try things out of our comfort zone. I have fallen madly in love with the bunnies and mice…and have almost all of them released thus far. Thanks so much for sharing the authentic You. You are a dear. hugs and smiles for this day!
These are really beautiful stamps! Thank you Cathy for inspiring me to be brave and pick up a paint brush. I’m going to put on my big girl panties and do it!!! LOL
Theresa F. says
Such great new sets from Colorado Craft Company. Your videos are so helpful and inspiring! Thank you!
Retta Lutte says
Thank you so much for sharing you beautiful cards. I never think to water color with distress inks! I think this is the best release yet!!!
Jodi Todd says
Love your videos and sense of humor. I especially enjoy the design tips!
Alice Stoner says
Hi Cathy! I enjoy watching your videos while I have my coffee in the mornings. I am new to card making and get so much inspiration from you. I wouldn’t consider myself artistic, but I am enjoying having something to do while we are locked down here in Canada. In November my first grandchild was born, a beautiful little girl named Roz (Rosalind). When I see the Anita Jerman stamps I think of all of the cards I can make for her in the future. I do have a couple of Anitas stamps on order from SimonSaysStamps, however they haven’t arrived yet. I love ordering from them although it takes about a month to get to Canada! Ha ha I would love a chance to win some of these cute little bunnies to make Roz some cards. I am hoping to purchase the story books as well so that she may recognize the characters during story time! Sending much love. Stay safe!
Absolutely stunning stamps Cathy and your cards are lovely. I need to try watercolouring with my distress inks. Thanks for sharing and the inspiration, Love watching your videos.
Carie Johnson says
I love the Cards you made. The Easter one is my favorite. The bunny stamps from Colorado Company are adorable.
Oh how I’d love to add these stamps to my collection! They are all so adorable!
Kay Spangler says
I think the Anita Jeram stamps are my favorite of all stamps. And, Cindy, your watercoloring has made me want them all. I can’t wait!
Cathy – So love your videos. This one was really fun. Thank you for sharing !!!
Norma Knowles says
Thank You 🙂 Awesome Easter card, enjoyed it very much
Oh my goodness, that easter card. Love it! Both cards are beautiful but the bunnies….too cute. I really enjoy watching your videos and seeing all the cards you post. Thank you Cathy!
Diane Shaw says
Love those stamps, especially the bunny collection! I’ve used a couple of their lovely legs stamps …so fun! You did a great job with coloring, it gave me inspiration to do more water coloring with distress ink. Thank you!
I love the big and bold sets, they are super cute! Plus the idea of of using distress ink as watercolor is awesome! Love the ideas.
Wonderful cards! Thank you for the video. I appreciate your tips. Something that has helped me with sentiment placement is to stamp it on acetate and then move it around on the card until I find the spot I like best.
Jessica Jobe says
Those bunnies are so adorable! I love your card-making style and enjoy watching all your videos. Your talent and genuine personality are so refreshing! Thank you!
Laurie Clark says
I get soooo excited when I see you’ve put out a new video! Not only do I love your cards, but I adore your ‘style’ :D. I just really love these stamps! Thanks for this giveaway!
Janice Lutz-Vanhoy says
I’d love to win one of these sets. Both sets are wonderful.
Patti Brigman says
Cathy, I’m so glad you showed what to do about the grass on the bunny picture. I was not sure if I should just put my picture closer to the bottom of the paper so that the creatures were not floating in the air, or just to color those sprigs of grass that were showing. Now I know I can go beyond the grass that is drawn in and my picture doesn’t have to be at the bottom of my panel. I love watching your videos.
Brenda C says
Wow, huge difference in the look of the card when you moved the sentiment. Thank you for that tip! Loving these illustrations. Thank you!
Joan Pilote says
Thanks for your wonderful video on the Colorado Craft Company’s new release. I think that your teaching skills are amazing. I am so new to making cards that when I watch you I think ‘Wow, she explains everything so well that I can do this!!’ You are the best!! And I absolutely love your humor!! Have a wonderful day!!
Jennifer L Floto says
I ABSOLUTELY adore Anita Jerome’s art work!!!!!!! Your card came out beautiful.
I love your relaxed style of painting and am looking forward to taking a class with you at Crop and Create. This was an amazing class and really loved the bunnies. Thanks again
Linda Brown says
Thank you for the encouragement to try watercolor. You made it simple on these wonderful images…love them!! They are timeless. I will try watercolor on some images I already have in my collection. Would LOVE to have these adorable sets.

Have a great day!
Mary Vanden Berge says
Cathy – I love this video! The difference on sentiment placement you showed is such a great way to see how the little things can change the whole look of the card. I am enjoying your videos – So happy to know where I can find guidance as I start this new hobby! You are my favorite- thank you for sharing your talents!
Elizabeth Abruzzese says

Melanie Simmons says
Love the watercolor look with those adorable bunnies! Such a sweet card
Karen Smith says

Loved the bunnies – you actually inspired me to try watercolouring which has always intimidated me. Thanks for sharing!
Tamara Swavely says
I love the bunny card you made. And so great to paint with ink!
Cathy, you are such a hoot to watch! Love all of the new CCC stamps and both of your cards are beautiful even with the sentiment stamped before you water colored the images.
Pat klein says
Cathy, thanks for showing me how easy it is to use distress inks to water color! Well at least you made it look easy!
Kim Lundstrom says
Adorable stamps and cards made with them! I always learn so much from you!
Debbie Whitmore says
Cathy, these cards are so beautiful. I am not good at coloring, but you have me convinced I may be able to do this! Thank you for your encouragement.
Loved your video today, I actually love all your videos! I especially loved the Anita Jeremy card and discussion about sentiment placement. Thank you for sharing with us❤️
Nicola Cooper says
What a treat to watch you create two gorgeous cards today. They were so different but as ever the completed cards were very you! I loved your watercolour technique with the distress ink, I don’t know why you worry about painting those bunnies looked great. And you used a ‘red’ in the macaron stack, the black card was a very classic finish.
P.S. I was hoping you’d use ‘Sprout’ to mount the bunnies as I love the name 😎
Sherri Little says
I always remind myself after watching your videos that I can do that, too!
Ingrid Aries says
So cute! I love the new designs! And thanks for the inspiration, Cathy! You’re cards are simply beautiful!
Deborah Wehde says
I love your videos you explains things so well. You are down to earth and a bit funny to.
The Easter card was wonderful. I have not tried water coloring but you make it look so easy.
Beautiful cards as usual! I love the new stamp sets…
Connie Oney says
The cards are adorable! I think you did great with the painting.
Marguerite Peaden says
These are all nice stamp sets, not sure which I like best. I might lean a tad more towards the slimline stamps, but not bu much. Both cards turned out well
I love the Anita Jeram stamps so mutch!
Debby Willis says
I loved the 2 cards that you made using products from the Colorado Craft Co!! The artist’s bunnies and mice are very cute and I love that in using the same cute animal on multiple stamp sets makes them so versatile! You can make so many different cards using the same few stamp sets which is something I look for before making a purchase. Thank you, Cathy, for introducing us to this new craft company and thank you to them for allowing you to give away some of their stamps!
Ada Frank says
These two cards are ADORABLE! I so enjoy your YouTube videos. I’d love to win this give away and recreate your magic!!!
Love the cards and the colors you used are perfect! Thank you for sharing.
Cathy, you are a ray of sunshine! I love how you teach and can make me feel connected. I have purchased a few of the Anita Jeram stamps… And would be happy to win these latest editions.
KATHERYN G CAMPS says
Thanks so much for the giveaway! Love your cards
Mary K Adams says
Adorable cards! The watercolors are so soft. And love your “boops” as you place embellishments. Hope your back is feeling better.

Carol Kawakami says
Beautiful water coloring! You are so inspiring to watch! Thank you for showing us that water coloring with distress inks is simple and easy to do!

Ezlie Perez says
Great cards and stamps!

Sherri Werner says
Just love her artwork and your distress ink painting!
Sharyn Ackerley says
I would truly love to win. I’m pretty sure our craft shop here in Geelong doesn’t supply these. It would really make my year.
Keep safe and I always look forward to watching your videos on YouTube.
Yours In Crafting
Sonia D Krohn says
I really appreciate your videos. They are informative and a lot of fun to watch. You always bring simple designs for beginner card makers like myself. It is so nice to learn that there are beautiful new stamps being made by Colorado Craft Co. I just need to work harder to be able to get all those stamps. Thank you for sharing your creativity and sense of humor.
Amy Donohue says
Cards…stamps…SO CUTE!! I love them all!! As to the sentiment….I actually like the 2nd one because for some reason it seems to make the imagery jump out even more. I think the 3td (final) one is too squished. As you can tell from my choice of words (“squished”) I am NOT a graphic artist. But I’m always good for an opinion! HAHAHA!!! Thanks, as always, Cathy, I just love what you do and it always inspires me!
Peggy D. says
Cathy, you have encouraged me to try painting with my (extensive) set of Distress inks. I love the look of water colors, but am terrified of painting! After seeing the two cards you did today, I’m gonna give it a shot.
Love the new sets from Colorado Craft Company. Your cards are adorable.
Loisha Myers says
Thanks for the inspiration, I’m really enjoying watching your videos. I love that you add some humor.
Myrna L. Garcia says
I loved your bunny card!!!
Susan A Anglesey says
Cathy I just LOVE watching you make cards! I’ve collected quite a few CZDesigns card making items and I love them all. I must get that Easter set and as a side note, we have a friend who is a Pastry Chef, the cookies are called Macrons, long o😉😉
I love these cards! I also love your simple approach to cards. I’m so glad Colorado Craft Company is able to turn Anita Jeram’s illustrations into stamps.
Caroline Young says

Dora Madera says
Good Morning Cathy,
I love how you shared two cards today. I will cross my fingers to win the Macaron Stamp set because I bake these arduous treats and have many crafty friends that bake them as well. Thanks for sharing all the tools you use and providing links. I also have my word of the day “GESTALT” thanks to you.
Cheryl Salvato says
Anita Jeram is my new favorite artist. I love her bunnies and mice. I have some of the previous releases and would love to have these new sets. I love how you used the distress inks to color the illustrations.
Lynn Pinkstaff says
Thanks for the great cards Cathy! I would live to win the stamps from the Colorado Craft Company.
Vania Gizzi says
Your videos always make me smile, thnx. You are funny and your tips on design are the cake on the cherry. 🙂 no kidding. Really, when I saw the difference the positioning of the sentiment made, my head exploded. I love the 3C stamps, all of them. I have one of last Christmas Anita Jeram stamps. I treated myself. They are the cutest thing. Anyway, just thank you. Today I really needed your video.
Debra Fries says
Love all the bunnies. Thanks for explaining the placement of the sentiment. Love to learn about good design practices and the why’s
Donna Oates says
Thank you for the tip about sentiment placement. Good stuff! Love the watercoloring. It does look less intimidating than my other watercolor trays! Love the cards but the Anita Jeram card has my heart!
I never thought of water coloring until I saw your video. I am definitely going to try this.
MJ Sinsel says
I have been thrilled with all the Anita Jeram releases. I am so glad Colorado Craft Company has gotten the rights to her artwork. Of course, Cathy Zelske has done a great job showing how even a newbie can use this artwork with her simple techniques.
Patti Johnson says
I love Colorado Craft stamps and your cards are adorable!
I learn something new everytime I watch.
Loved your cards & video!
Jeanine Rasmusen says
A regular watcher of your you tube videos, love your style of card making and how you tell the story.
those stamps would be amazing and how you water coloured them, fantastic. I would love to try to get the same result as you have. would be so much fun and looks very relaxing.
Nini Kelley says
Love your painting! I’m inspired to give this a try!
Julie M. says
Good information about the greeting placement. I don’t think I would have thought about your third and final placement, but it nestled in perfectly. Thanks for the opportunity to win stamps, too.
Maria Helena Fernandez says
What lovely stamps and your water coloring was great!
Kathryn Ladra says
I Just love watching you and your creativity emerge on my computer. I think the Anita Jeram creatures are adorable and your painting excellent. Thanks

Jalayne Salzman says
I just love the Colorado Craft Company stamps with the Anita Jeram illustrations. They just make my creative heart soooo happy. And now there are several more to add to the collection. Yipee!!!!!!!!!
Audrey Meyer says
You make me confident enough to try… loving these stamps!
MJ GELTZ says
Loved the rabbits stamp the best but you got me with the sweets to eat, the Big and Bold stamps!!!
Karyn Allen says
Darling stamp sets! Would love to win either set.
Thanks for the opportunity.
Georgann S says
I’ve been very successful painting with my distress inks. The reason I don’t wait and stamp the sentiment last is because of big boo-boos, even with a stamping platform. The gestalt lesson was very informative. Love listening to you as you work! Thanks for all you do!
Margaret Page says
Great new stamps. They look so good in water colour. Love your humour.
Kymn Stanley says
Such classic looking stamps, the stamps look like they come from a story book. Thank you for another fun tutorial.
Phyllis Steffensen says
Love the bunny card. You made the painting super easy which as a beginner I really appreciate. These mice and bunnies are so cute.
Audrey Meyer says
Your videos make me feel ‘normal’!
Sometimes I stamp my sentiment on a separate piece of paper so I con mov3 it around before I stamp it on the final card🙃
Joy Janssen says
Amazing! Love the stamps (love that Colorado Craft Co is US made) and love the inspiration!
Leslie Justiniani says
I’m always inspired by your talent, knowledge and finished product! In this case even more as I love the Anita Jeram designs and am pre-beginner when it comes to watercoloring… thank you for your warm approach which makes it seem possible to accomplish!
Sandy S. says
Cathy-you and Colorado Craft Company have done it again-designs that will appeal to young and old alike. You have given me confidence that I can create beautiful cards with your design and coloring tips. The new stamps are so appropriate for events coming up in anyone’s families. My daughter is a baker who appreciates the cards I make and often requests cards from me. The new ones with the macarons and other tasty treats will certainly be on her request list to give to her fellow bakers for birthday and thank you cards. Since she is expecting a baby in May, a card made with the “New Baby” set would almost certainly be one to add to a Keepsake album for her little one.
Suzanne Hue says
Great video 😍! Thanks for tips and tricks. I really want to try water coloring and I love how you did it with Distress inks. Sometimes I forget they can be used that way. Lol
Laurie G says
Fabulous….you’ve made me a big & bold believer!
Annmarie Zarzecki says
Hello Cathy..I am a new card maker and you are just so adorable and funny that I can relate to you. Thanks for all your tutorials and teaching of placement and color. I’m really trying. Lost my mojo somewhere and can’t seem to find it? Wish I had all the stamps you have and the colors. Wish me luck and thanks again!
Donna Burgess says
Always enjoy watching your videos. Love your style and sense of humor. I always learn something new when watching your videos. These stamps are so cute and Anita Jeram is so talented.
Love your videos. You always inspire me.
Patti Rocha says
LOVED the video and I’ve been a fan of Colorado Craft Company for a long time now. Their ‘Big and Bold’ stamps are fantastic! I have a few already and my favorite (so far) is the Jack o Lantern and Haunted House.
I liked the cards you made, but have to admit I’m partial to the macaron one…it made me hungry! 🙂
Thank you for the chance to enter this fun drawing!
Dana Joy says
Absolutely loved watching you watercolor these images. Now I need to eat a macaroon. 😂
I love watching your videos. You make everything look so easy. Your bunnies card turned out so cute, and the macrons look so yummy. The Big and Bold stamps look very interesting. I hope you will try them out in a future video.
You didn’t specify if there were any restrictions for entering so hopefully I have a chance because I live in Canada. I’ve seen other YouTubers/Bloggers only allow U.S. viewers to enter their contests/drawing.
Thank you for sharing your talent with your videos.
Gayle Sanders says
I really like the third card you made with the bunnies. I could see what you were talking about in each succession photo and agree the sentiment nestled in the design looked best. Thank you for sharing another great video, I enjoy watching you a lot.
Cheryl Vanderhoof says
I just discovered the Colorado Craft Company in the past month and instantly fell in love! I want everything! Love the way you use the new stamps.
Wendy Pollock says
Love your videos Cathy – they’re always full of enthusiasm with a good touch of reality!!
Jessica Pena says
CZ is a card-making rockstar. Thank you for the constant inspiration and lessons! Both cards are amazing.
Karen Rodgers says
I like your dry sarcasm. It’s the main reason I’m able to get through your videos. It sets you apart from all the dull same old same videos… lightens my day. Thanks
Laurie Nasca says
Great job with the new CCC releases! I’ve got the two previous big and bold sets and they’re great. But those bunnies and mice are to die for! Thanks for making it look easy.
Joni A says
Loving all of Anita’s cute lil bunny stamps!!! Perfect timing for Easter!!! There are so many ideas floating in my head of what I could create with these super cute little bun buns!!! And the Biggie stamps are cool too!!!
These stamps are too cute!🐇
April Aguinaga says
Kathy, you always make your cards special. I love them both!
sandra h says
Your cards are so cute
Gibboney Vicki says
Really cute bunny art for Easter! You make it look so easy.

Lorraine Buttner says
Adorable! There goes my new year’s resolution to cut back on adding to my stamp collection. Again. 🙂
Hi. Kathy.greetings from Australia. Love these cards. I’ve been dabbling with watercolor thanks for keeping it simple. They look awesome. Janine
Teresa Rawnick says

Hi Cathy, Loved these two cards! I’m going to have to try painting with Distress Inks. (If I mess up, it’s only paper, right?) Have fallen in love with Anita Jeram’s artwork and have started collecting her stamps. Thank you for this opportunity to win these great pieces of art!

I just loved the cards! I thought the sentiment was placed in an okay position, so I’m not quite sure what you meant about the placement. Would you please consider doing a video on this subject? I did love all 3 photoshop placements though.
I would love getting the entire release, but the “big & bolds” would be just fine by me! ❤️❤️❤️
Take care & stay safe!
Kerrie Good says

Stacey Simmons says
These are adorable! I love your clean, simple style. It really showcases the stamps.

Barbara McElroy says
Cathy, Your cards and painting with ink have inspired me! I love the stamps and though they are different in “theme,” I can use both of them! So it’s a big decision to choose just one, since at the moment I can purchase just one. Thanks so much for sharing your talent and advice through your videos.
Sandy Hays says
Thank you so much for the tip on the sentiment placement. It really does make a difference for cohesive look. Loved your coloring!

Kathleen Fink says
Wow another fabulous video. I always forget that I can paint with my inks. You did a stunning job. ❤️❤️
Cindy S says
Love the “tea stained” bunny card. I like the old fashioned feel of the card. Im old fashioned! Im just OLD! Never to old to learn more card making tips. Stamping with the Distress inks looks like I could give it a go. I have not heard of these two stamp companies you represent here, but those slim line options are different.

I have bought tons of stamps thinking I would be able to color/paint them and then I realize they are just too difficult. Love, love, love the biggies! I’d love to work with craft supply companies to make products more accessible to the visually impaired. Thanks for sharing and the generous giveaway.

You’ve given me many “Aha!” moments over the last few months, showing how a little change in color or placement or texture makes all the difference! I love these whimsical stamps and the sweet cards you made!
Liz Jutila says
I love those Anita Jeram stamps so much! I bought the Christmas and Valentine’s and would love to win the Easter set! Thanks for the great video. I thought your sentiment placement was just fine! It turned out super cute.

Love the Happy Easter card. I see what you mean about the sentiment placement. I’m going to try to do this with my next card.
Kathy Camasso says
I am loving all of Anita Jeram’s new sets; so darling! To be honest, I liked your original sentiment placement; maybe a little lower but I don’t think I would place it between faces. Just my opinion though, I am no pro, lol!
Tabitha Riley says
I love the Easter stamp set and this company! The rabbit s remind me of the book the velveteen rabbit! So nostalgic ♥️
Mary Espeland says
I really do like both of these cards. I have tried using the d in stress inks for “painting ” but it has be ed n a while. I enjoy all your videos and appreciate the inspiration! Ke dr p them coming!

Donna Pridgen says
Love all your videos. You always make me smile at the end of the day when I get to watch. Thank you for sharing so many different ideas, techniques, quick tips, and different companies and card makers information. I never knew how big card making is all over the world. I’m glad to learn about Colorado Card Company. I definitely will be looking them up. Thanks again.
Love the new sets of bunnies and great painting by the way. Very astute with the placement of the sentiment. I wouldn’t have thought of it. First time on your blog. Tons of hugs!
I love the Anita Jeram stamps. They are just so cute. Your watercoloring job was excellent.
Always love your videos
Pauline Abeysekera says
Love both cards. The Distress Inks really do have beautiful colours. I enjoyed the lesson on repeating the colour pattern on the first card and on sentiment placement on the second. Thank🙂
Irene G. says
How adorable are Anita Jeram’s cute little critter stamps. Normally I’d be all about them. I have fallen in deep like with the Big and Bold stamp sets. I have been wanting to add bigger and bolder to my collection. LOVE these!!! You have such great ideas, and your braveness to adventure into unsure territory of doing things rubs off on me. Makes me want to try it all myself. WHOEVER wins the sets will be lucky and I’m sure they will bless many others with projects they use them on. Keep making such cool videos… you make my day!!!
Kellie Snow says
I LOVE these new stamps!! Loved both cards.
Cathy, I love your work, and love the new stamps! You’re so inspiring.
Betty Sue says
Such fun and cute cards!
Cathleen S says
Cathy, you never give yourself enough credit! You are a wonderful watercolorist! I have to say that I really don’t care for the sentiment down so close to the images…I prefer the second option that was just a little higher and looks less crowded. However, I get what you were saying. I have some of the earlier AJ stamps…love the valentine and St Patrick’s sets. I have used colored pencils and they turned out so cute! Thanks for sharing your talent, I look forward to all your videos…you are a great inspiration for me! ❤️
Mary Faith says
These cards were just amazing. I love the illustrations of the stamps. They are fun and whimsy.
Karen M says
Those bunnies are so precious. I enjoyed watching you paint them and then describing where to put sentiments. Very helpful!

Oh Please Pick Me!! These new sets are adorable 🙂

OMG!! The Cards are amazing and I am in love with the Easter one!!! Simply adorable 🥰
Thank you for inspiring me to paint with distress inks! This will be much more attainable for me than markers.
I loved the Easter stamp so much I purchased it immediately. I then found your video. I loved your video and the colors you used. So pretty. I learned from you today too. Don’t add the sentiment before you color it. Thank you so much.
J Stewart says
I absolutely love these bunnies!
Wilma Marx says
Cathy, love watching you videos. Don’t stop making them.
Adorable! You make watercoloring look so easy. I enjoy your videos. Thanks.

Great cards Cathy.
Joy Soldan says

Hi Cathy – Two great cards. I’m in love with the Anita Jeram collection. They are so sweet and charming.

Thank you for sharing, Wouldn’t love getting one of these beauties in your ??

Michaelene Thomas says
Awesome cards I love your style!
Lisa Palomino says
Cathy Z! My daughter and I have been loving your videos. I’m even inspired to think I might be able to water color with ink myself. You are inspirational to all us middle aged dining room crafters!

Wow ! I really enjoyed watching you color and explain what and how and why you were doing it!! I came over here and scrolled and scrolled and scrolled to get to 404! I started not to leave a comment because well who am I kidding 404 is not going to win anything ! Then I thought well I should tell you how much I like watching you. You have such an easy way about making things and your funny to boot ! Any way I have been telling myself for years I was going to but a stamp set of macaroons so maybe this is the year? I don’t know why I like the look of them so much I have never eaten one nor have I seen them in a store so it’s something to shoot for in 2021 right!?
You are always fun and I love the inspiration you give. I am now going to try painting with my distress inks! I love these new stamp sets! Thank you!

Good for you for being so proud of your fabulous watercoloring ! And I am a sucker for bunnies ( 3 of them own me) .
I find also that this stamp set is great with watercolor. it’s more forgiving (I tried it with that green watercolor box that everyone used to use… ). I’ll try with the Distress Inks… (I have a couple of hers from this past fall!). Thank you for the opportunity. I hope you’re feeling better…

I have been making cards for several years but have not done watercoloring because I found it intimidating. Well, I have watercolor paper and I have Distress Inks so as you say “try it, it’s just paper”. I have to get some brushes and then I’ll be ready. Will this work with Distress Oxides too? I have many more colors of thos.
Michelle Heglie says
You SHOULD paint more! Very pretty!
Didi Irwin says
Oh my, Cathy, you are truly a gem! I believe I have watched all of your videos to date and have always come away inspired and with a smile on my face. This medium seems like the perfect choice for Anita Jeram’s little treasures and worked beautifully on the macaron (I pronounce ‘macaroon’ as ‘macaron’ is the French way to say it 🙂 card. Both cards were just beautiful! Thank you for the lesson on sentiment placement and associates the chance to win!!

Angela M Glick says
As always, you keep it simple and absolutely beautiful! I’d love to win these; I don’t usually do the “cute” critters and playful images like the macaroons because, to be honest, they intimidate me a little. But using your technique (which also enables me to maximize my distress inks, so *DOUBLE WIN*!) I think I could maybe pull it off!
Rai Guidone says

Thank you for the tutorial on painting with distress inks. They do make it seem less intimidating than other forms of water-coloring. BTW, you did a wonderful job! I love Anita Jeram’s artwork. I recently purchased the 4-Leaf Clover stamp with the hamster and the clover from Colorado Craft Co. for St. Patrick’s Day. I wanted to try water-coloring the image rather than coloring with Copics so your video arrived at the perfect time. You’re a great instructor! Thank you.

You are so right about the illustrations being sketchy & whimsical, definitely makes coloring less intimidating & stress-free (can’t go wrong). Thank you for the sentiment placement advice also. Now I can feel more confident in placing a sentiment down on my cards. Great job on your cards Cathy, always a joy to watch you be quirky & create adorable cards in the dining/crafting room 😁

Love, love the cute little bunnies, mouse, all of the gorgeous stamps ❤️💕🌞. Beautiful card’s, as always 💖
Sam F says
I’m especially fond of the big and bold images, and loved the tips in the video. My favorite part was that you showed the different sentiment placement. Seeing it like that and talking it through was really helpful to me! I also love that the conversation came out of a “mistake”. It works as is, but doing “this” could have made it a little better, and here’s why…thanks for sharing!
Nancy Deffner says
The Anita Jeram stamps are adorable. Lovely job with watercoloring. Thanks for the lesson on sentiment placement. I thought it should have been much higher until I saw your last version and voila, perfect!

Jenn Humphries says
The stamps are absolutely adorable and I loved the card designs you came up with!

Those bunnies are adorable, and remind me that I need to haul out set of bunny stamps that I already own. I really love the Big and Bold stamps! I haven’t made a slimline card, yet, but now I have the itch to do so! Do they fit in a business envelope so I don’t have to invest in lovely colored envelopes just yet? Thanks for inspiring me with every video you create!
Wonderful collaboration for the new sets. I like the look of the critters.
Amy Hathaway says
Thank you this review of the new stamps and the reminder of how easy Distress painting can be. I’ve done it before, but not for a bit and this reminded me how I loved the results and how simple it is to get great results.
