Hi peeps! How’s it going? Vera here, bringing you mid week inspiration on behalf of The Ton.
With the recent anniversary release, there are many beautiful sets for me to play with. But, I have one set that I didn’t get a chance to play with during the release party, the Peony Close Up Cling Background stamp! And, am pretty excited the way my card turned out using this set.
To start, I stamped and heat embossed the flower with Rose Gold embossing powder on a piece of watercolor cardstock. Then I watercolor the flower with Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor set. With the winter weather still going strong, I decided to color it with cool tone. Let it dry.
On hindsight, I should have taped the paper before I watercolor it, so the paper stay flat, but I forgot. Luckily, strong good glue, helped to straighten the paper. 🙂 Die cut the word happy using Peony Laurel Coordinating Dies. Pop the word out and adhere the flower panel to the card base.
I repeat the die cutting process three more times on a white cardstock and layered them to make the word happy stands out more. Then, I stamped and heat embossed the word “Wishing You A” and “Birthday” from Peony Laurel set. Trim the label and adhere to card.
I finished the card by adding my favorite embellishment, the mix size dew drops. Hah… when it comes to embellishing my flower cards, this is my go to item. I need a box full of them!!
Well, this weekend I am hosting a crafting day with my girlfriends, so I am hoping I can finish a few cards. Lofty goal, I know, as usually we tend to chat more than actually finishing any card. 😉
That’s all for me today peeps. I hope you enjoy today’s inspiration. Thank you for stopping by here and may the rest of your week goes on wonderfully. Cheers….
