Blue Birthday Peony

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….

    I love how soft and beautiful the watercolors look on this and the Rose Gold embossing is perfect! I’m thinking the Peony Close Up Cling Background stamp just went to the top of my “must have” list lol, this truly is stunning. Thank you for sharing it and for the awesome inspiration. (
