Hey friends! Hope you guys are doing well. I have a jewel toned, watercolour card to share with you using Peony Bouquet Stamp Set.


The April Altenew Inspiration Challenge colours are just SO gorgeous I couldn’t stop myself from playing with them and hopefully inspire you in the process.

For my card front I used Woodgrain Powder cardstock to which I added black paint splatters for a bit of interest.

I stamped the flowers from the Peony Bouquet Stamp Set with watermark ink and heat embossed them in gold. To get this toned watercolor effect, I added plenty of water to the image. After that I started to drop some watercolour to the wet area without giving it much thought if the colours are mixing. The photos don’t do justice to the gorgeous mix of colours I ended up with.

After fussy cutting out all the images I moved on over to the frame.

This gorgeous ornate frame is from the newly released New Day Card Kit. Absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE everything in this kit including the die!

I took out two diecuts, one in Woodgrain Powder cardstock and the other in Gold Mirror cardstock. I used the gold frame as offset to my woodgrain one and it looks SO cool in person!

After I arranged all the flowers, I just knew the sentiment HAS to be one from the Label Love stamp set.

I chose to go with “celebrate” since this works for every occasion! I added a few gold sequins and a strip of Gold Glitter Tape to one side to complete the look.

That is all friends! I hope you like the card. It was super quick, except for the fussy cutting of course but everything else came together rather quickly. Actually I keep a stash of heat embossed or plain stamped images in a box and the card making process becomes a little quicker because of that.

Hope you were inspired today!

love and hugs,
