I have been looking for this blog forever. Love the watercolor game. Great job n and thanks for sharing the process. Yahoo Boston Strong.
Love your coloring! Beautiful!
Gorgeous card & watercolored sunset!
Love your uber gorgeous background!!
That is some great watercoloring behind that Boston scene! Thanks for listing the landmarks on the stamp. I have not been to Boston. I live on the opposite of the US. Good luck with your move.
This wooden stamps are one of my favorite in this release. Very vibrant color for the cityscape.
BEAUTIFUL cityscape and colours – WOW – LOVE IT!!!
THANK YOU for sharing your INKY INSPIRATION 🙂
I live in Texas, but Boston is one of my favorite non-Texan cities! What a great card, thank you for sharing!
Beautiful, colorful card!! And, no, sadly I have not ever visited Boston!! Would love to, though!!
Boston! Had a long layover there but couldn’t get out to explore sadly. Now I know what landmarks are iconic lol. I hope I win! Thanks for the tour, very nice site and projects.
I love this colorful card, and thanks for telling us what the buildings were in the Boston Stamp.
Fun travel card…
Love the colors you used.
Great card, love the water colors!
Such a great card – love those vivid colors. Thanks for sharing.
Love all the new products!
Love this stamp! Boston has had a special place in my heart ever since my niece did some mission work there. But this stamp would be fun on any kind of city-themed card! This is a great example!
Never been to Boston. Sweet idea for a gift.
Great colors! I’m reassured that I’m not the only one who has trouble with the ink bleeding when I watercolor. I love the baseball flying out of Fenway, must have been David Ortiz’s 500 home run which he hit today!
Wonderful card, love the city. Thanks for sharing.
I grew up near Boston- great stamp- I wondered how the image stayed so white on the inside- thought
you might have used a mask- until I read the details. Cool card.
Yes, Boston is a favorite of mine: went to college there, taught there, and of course am a Red Sox fan!
Like your card, too, of course!
Never been to Boston! Sure would like to go. Nice card!
Beautiful bold colors.
Oh my gosh! Adorable – now I feel like I need the Boston stamp also! I’ve been there once for work and I would love to go back when I could be a tourist.
I really like that beautiful card – funnily enough I just drove through Boston for the first time in my life (being from Europe, that’s said). Next time I’ll stay longer – promised 🙂 Love, Mink
Oh yes. I only live 4 minutes away. There is so much to do in Boston. Faneuil Hall is the best. Hope you enjoyed your stay.
Love the Boston Card.
Oh how fun!
wow–I would NEVER have guessed this was simple embossing–was sure you had masked it. and LOVE your colors and style–must get to the craft room to try this out!!
Love the watercolors. I will definitely try embossing before attempting the watercolors. Love the Chicago stamp. A Chicago girl through and through. These city stamps from Hero Arts are amazing. Thanks for sharing.
Beautiful cards. So vibrant. TFS.
Wow!!!! I love this new release!!! Great card!!!! I’ve never been in Boston but it’s definitely one of the American cities that I would love to visit!
Great! Thanks for sharing!
It’s been awhile since I’ve been to Boston (I live in CT) but this stamp brings it all back. I remember going to Faneuil Hall and having something really delicious to eat there. I also think I bought a stamp or 2 there. I also remember a lot of the streets were one way and that frustrated my parents. Boston is a beautiful city and someday I would like to go back. I love how you did the background. It’s just the right amount of color for that card. It must have also been fun to meet your friend there. Congrats on your move and I hope you get to enjoy Boston more.
Your cards are so sweet! Thanks for sharing them. God bless! ILuvTheEucharist (at) aol.com
I adore it! I love the colours – they go so well together.
This is a beautiful card. Love the colors.
I love your fabulous card!
I’ve never been to Boston but I just finished reading Rick Riordan’s newest book with my kids and it’s set in Boston…. I would love to go there someday!
Simple, clean card.

Very nice card and the colors are perfect. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that you shared with us that it took you several tries. I think that most readers feel that you guys put out one perfect design after another. While I believe in happy accidents, I do sometimes trash a project because it just didn’t turn out as expected.

My niece is in Boston this weekend for a school trip, so im really studying this stamp and *really* appreciate that you named the landmarks 🙂 Thanks, too, for the embossing tip. Makes sense that the raised edge would help to control the watercolours. That will come in handy!

I just love this card! So cute
This looks great: the bold black and white a strong colors. Love it!
Beautiful use of the new stamps and a great reminder that embossing can serve as a safety outline when coloring ! Last time I tried this with water coloring I still got some bleeding (from either the ink or embossed powder- not sure which was the source) though, so I’d love to hear what brands u used to stamp and emboss, with such great results . Thanks!
Love your watercolored background!
I just love those destination stamps and what a great way to use them with watercolored backgrounds.
It never ceases to amaze me how awesome distress inks can look and replicate the traditional watercolor look. Gorgeous card and safe travel/moving back to MA!
Beautiful background over the cityscape. Nicely done 🙂
Being a Canadian resident, I have never had the pleasure of visiting Boston but it is definitely on my bucket list. Love the card and skyline you have created!

I love your card Jenn!! And it was fun to come over here and see my face on your blog, LOL! Loved meeting you at the show so much!!
You could frame this card and it would be a lovely souvenir of Boston.
Isnt funny how many times we crafters will redo somethig and then a light just goes on, and we think how easy why did it take so long for me to remember that!
