Simon Says Stamp Mother’s Day Peony

Hello Crafty Lovelies and thanks for stopping by! Have you checked out the newest Simon release, Yay You? What are your favorites? If you know me, I always love florals and sentiments! So, today I’m playing with the Sketched Peony Blossom Foil and Cut set. Let go through the details, shall we?

I ended up making this card for my Mom for Mother’s Day, and of course, she loved it! I began by foiling the Sketched Peony Blossom on a panel of hot press watercolor paper using Spellbinders Champagne Hot Foil. I always end up foiling a few, but only used one in this case, so I have some to use on another project in the future. While I had the machine hot, I also used the PinkFresh Studio Solid Hot Foil Plate to foil the negative of the flower as well.

Once the foiling was complete, I used Zig Markers in 025, 032 and 040 to do some watercoloring. I also used Copic Markers in Y00 and Y08 to add some yellow to the center of the flower. I then used the included, coordinating die to trim the flower out along with the solid foiled flower as well. Those were then adhered together, slightly off center, using liquid glue.

For the background, I used the SSS Stitched Whirl Background and trimmed that from a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock. I also used the SSS Olive Leaves to cut a couple of those from Neenah 110lb, as well as some gold cardstock.

I went ahead and worked on the sentiment and use the Happy Mother’s Day sentiment, which is from the SSS Better With Mom set. I stamped the sentiment using VersaMark Ink on a scrap of Neenah 110lb and heat embossed it using Ranger Princess Gold Embossing Powder. When that was complete, I used the coordinating die to trim it out.

To assemble the card, I adhered the whirl background to the card base using SSS Dot Tape Runner and glued the leaves to the panel, while adhering the flower using foam tape for dimension. The sentiment was also adhered with foam tape. And, of course there has to be bling, so I used some PinkFresh Studio Gold Metallic Pearls for that.

That finishes this one up! I hope you enjoyed it and I hope it inspires you to get crafty! Have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome!

Simon Says Stamp Good Day Peony Blossom

Hello Friends and thanks for stopping by! The newest Simon Says Stamp release, Yay You, is a gorgeous one, and I’m playing with the new Sketched Peony Blossom Foil and Cut set! Have you jumped on the foiling band wagon yet? I did a while back, and I just love it! Let’s run through the details for today’s card, shall we?

To begin, I foiled the Sketched Peony Blossom several times on some Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock using Spellbinders Rose Gold Foil and colored them using Copic Markers R00, R11, R20 and E02 and a Multiliner to add the black detail to the centers of the flowers. While I was foiling, I went ahead and used the PinkFresh Studio Solid Hot Foil Plate to foil the negative pieces as well. Once all the peonies were done, I used the included, coordinating die to trim them all out.

I used the SSS Privet Branch and cut some of those from blue cardstock, as well as some vellum. The background needed some interest so I opted for the PinkFresh Studio Simply Diamonds and adhered that directly to the card base using liquid glue.

To assemble the card, I glued the solid foiled peonies to the colored peonies. I adhered the leaves to the card base using glue, and adhered the peonies atop those using foam tape for dimension.

The SSS Sentiment Strip was glued directly to the flower and I added some pearls to finish it up.

That does it for this card! I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty in your space! Don’t forget to stop by and check out the entire Yay You release. Have a wonderful day and stay awesome!
