Social Stamping Blog Host - Thinking of You

Welcome to this weeks Social Stamping Bog Host, we are sharing our creations with the theme Thinking of You. Thank you once again to Kelly Kent for organizing another amazing blog hop and with all of these amazing women. Make sure you check out everyone’s blog to see their creations.

When someone is feeling down or has lost someone, sending a Thinking of You card is a lovely idea to write a warm and caring message to brighten up their day. Sending a card can make a big difference and it just might be the thing someone needs to get through their tough day. Showing kindness is the key to making our lives feel so much better.

Peony Garden Suite

The beautiful Peony Garden Suite is perfect for a Thinking of You card and Stampin' Up! sure know how to showcase a stunning suite. It's in the latest 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue with beautiful blooms of Peonies, it's very sophisticated and the colours are gorgeous. All of the products from this suite was on my whish list.

The Peony die cut image is from the Peony Dies, I've used Watercolor Paper, applied ink with the new Water Painters using Petal Pink for the Peony and Soft Sea Foam and Pear Pizzazz for the leaves. There are a number of pieces, but they can easily be put together with lining the pieces up at the same point and apply Multipurpose Liquid Glue works well. 

The layers for the card are Gray Granite for the card base, Peony Garden Designer Series Paper, I've used two layers one in Petal Pink and the other in Gray Granite. I just love the different designs. 

I applied Petal Pink Ink with the wide bristle brush onto a piece of Shimmery Cardstock and flicked ink using the Petal Pink Stampin' Blend onto the Cardstock. To achieve the look use the brush tip and flick against the inside of the lid.  

The sweet Square Vellum Doilies adds a soft elegance to the card and I added the Gray Granite Shimmer Ribbon over a strip of Petal Pink DSP. The Peony is layered with lots of Stampin' Dimensionals to finish off my project.
