Birthday Peonies

Hi peeps. Vera here. Today, I have a couple birthday cards to share with you all using the lovely Climbing Peonies set. Am so excited the way my cards turned out as it came out exactly the way I envisioned it. Let’s see the 1st card, shall we?

I wanted to showcase way to get more from your stencil. I noticed that I have tendency to use stencil the way it laid out, but we can totally get different design from it if we just lay them in angle or multiple angles, which I did here. For this card, I angle the stencil on the right corner and as I change layer, I carefully lay the next stencil on top of the first one, before gently remove the bottom layer, this way I don’t loose my placement for the layer. The colors I used on my card at Deep Peony, Iris Blooms, Italian Denim, Lemon Drop & Evergreen. It looks like I used more than these colors, but I really just varied the pressure and load of the ink on my blending brush. Once I am done with t he right side, I moved the left side and ink up the stencil on that side. Once finish, I trim the panel and adhere it to card base. For the sentiment I used the sentiment from Grouped Fresh Daisies. I made a booboo when I stamped the word happy, so I simply stamp it again on a strip of cardstock and adhere it with foam adhesive. Extra layer, why not? Top it off with some Soft Pink Rhinestones.

Since I was on a roll, I decided to make another card and this one with just the standard way of laying the stencil straight on the panel.

Quick stenciling with all the same colors on previous card and same sentiment set. One stencil set with two pretty different results. Pretty satisfying in my opinion when I can complete 2 cards in 1 seating. Hah!

That’s all from me as I am still recovering from having Covid. Am still going through that Covid fog, where now & then I feel like my head or my vision kind of off. Luckily no more headache, which is a big blessing. Anyhooo, my body is telling me more rest still needed. So, I better sign off.. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend. I know, it’s only Friday, but hey it’s almost there. Cheers peeps! And make today a happy one.

    Like both your cards! I like the “airy” first one as a nice change. The second is pretty, too. May your recovery continue, not an easy one! Blessings, Barbara-Jean
