Simon Says Stamp – Dear Friend Release Blog Hop Day 1 – Peony Background

Hi there, friends!

Welcome to Day 1 (of 2) of the Simon Says Stamp Dear Friend Release Blog Hop! Be sure to check out the Simon Says Stamp Blog, where this celebration begins and check out Day 2 inspiration tomorrow, too! To see all the inspiration for this release in one place, you can also check out the Dear Friend Gallery! My card today uses a few new products from this release and I hope you’ll enjoy it!

The Peony Background cling stamp is one designed by Emily Midgett. It fills an A2-sized panel beautifully. I stamped and embossed it in black to watercolor. I find that I watercolor much quicker if I emboss the image.

Daniel Smith Watercolors: Quinacridone Violet, Quinacridone Lilac, Rose of Ultramarine, Quinacridone Gold, Hooker’s Green, Sap Green

To give the panel some interest, I added a gold frame using A2 Thin Frames that I die-cut using Matte Gold Cardstock. Then, for the sentiment, I hot foiled the new Elegantly Modern Greetings hot foil plate. I also embossed a sub-sentiment using the Elegantly Modern Greetings stamp.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed this project!
