Hello and welcome back to our blog! For today’s post, I have this gorgeously watercolored Peony Duo and our Stripe Addict card project.

I started off by heat embossing the larger peony and leaves from our Peony Duo stamp set in our Rose Gold embossing powder. Then I watercolored these images using Indigo and Black color burst powders. Once dried, I die cut all the images using their coordinating dies. Next I used the smallest die from our Double Stitched Rectangles Small die collection to create the panel for my sentiment. The sentiment that I used is from our The Most Interesting Cardmaker 2.0 stamp set. This was stamped in our crisp black Noir Dye Ink.

Next I white heat embossed our Stripe Addict cling background stamp onto gray cardstock. Then I trimmed that panel about a 1/4 inch on the top and right edges. Then I adhered that trimmed panel onto a top folding horizontal A2 cardbase.

Next, I assembled everything onto my base. I mounted the peony first using foam tape. Then I popped up the rest of the leaves and sentiment panel using additional dimension tape. Lastly, I added some of our Smoked Sapphire Sparkling Clear Sequins.
