Fresh Florals


I definitely have that Friday feeling today… although truth be told I had it yesterday as well, with the kids off school I kinda lost track of days.

Today I have a card to share using the Wplus9 ‘Pretty Peonies’…. I am so glad that the re-stocks of these have arrived at Make The Day Special so I can share lots more ideas using these gorgeous stamps.


I have used Hero Arts for all of my floral stamping, Soft Cantaloupe and Fresh Peach for the large flowers, Green Hills for the leaves and stems and a mix of Butter Bar and Mint Julep for the additional buds and berries. Once I had stamped all of my florals I thought that it was missing something so I took a tiny circle stamp and filled in the gaps within the floral arrangement with the same colours I had already used, a stamped these out past the images but more spaced so it looked like they were fading.

The gorgeous sentiment is from Avery Elle ‘Fabulous Florals’ I just love the font of this, I stamped in black and then stamped over the top with VersaMark and heat embossed with clear embossing powder to make the sentiment pop.

I would really love to know what you think of my card!

Hope you have a beautiful day and I hope to see you again soon!

Gorgeous. I love the contrast between the delicate flowers and the black and white bold chevrons.

This is a very beautiful card, Lydia. I'm also really very interested in the background of your shot! Is that scrapbook paper?!
