A Friend Loveth At All Times

Hello Sweet Friends!  Julie here to share a Mixed Media card that I created with the new Peaceful Peonies Clear Stamp Set designed by NinaB Designs.

Wow, isn’t this a gorgeous stamp set?  I love all of the sentiments as well as the verses and those beautiful flowers, don’t you?

I used a stencil brush with a flourish stencil to apply tumbled glass distress ink onto two pieces of white cardstock, before trimming, die cutting and layering onto black cardstock. 

I stamped the large floral image from Peaceful Peonies with embossing ink and heat embossed with black embossing powder.  Once the powder had cooled, I used water-based markers with a water brush to layer the watercolor. 

I fussy cut the image close to the embossing, cut the leaves off the edges and split the flower near the bottom before layering the split blossom onto the card front with dimensional foam.

I added the heat embossed sentiment from Peaceful Peonies with dimensional foam before adhering and tucking the leaves directly to the card front (behind the blossoms).

I finished off the card by adding shimmer to the petals with a clear glitter pen and adhering a few rhinestones.

I hope I have inspired you today to create something fun this week! Hugs and have a blessed week, sweet friends!
