Pink Peonies Cards with Rachel and Candice

Hello everyone! It's Rachel here and I have a card to share with you today that features the Pink Peonies Stamp Set

Sunny Studio Stamps: Pink Peonies Thank You Card by Rachel Alvarado

To start, I first heat embossed my images with Fine Detail White Embossing Powder onto a sheet of Ranger White Watercolor Paper. I then used some Zig Watercolor Brush Pens to loosely color them. After they dried, I then used the coordinating Pink Peonies Die Set to cut them out.

Colors Used:
  • Light Pink Flowers: 202 Peach Pink & 026 Light Pink
  • Dark Pink Flowers: 027 Dark Pink, 200 Almond Pink
  • Leaves: 053 Yellow Green, 046 Mid Green, 043 Olive Green

For the background, I cut a piece of Watercolor Paper to 4.25" x 5.5". I then used some Green Watercolor Paint to quickly paint a rectangular pattern. I then splattered it with both diluted Opaque White and Green Paints for some added interest and adhered my images with some 3D Foam Adhesive Tape. Lastly, I heat embossed my sentiment onto a piece of black card stock.

Thank you all so much for stopping by! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Hey everyone, Candice here. How many of you are a little scared to try something new in the crafting community?! I am super comfortable with my Copic markers, but really admire those that do watercolor, and I finally took the leap on these gorgeous Pink Peonies!

To make this elegant Easter acetate slimline card, I used these Sunny Studio new release products:

To create the acetate slimline base, I first trimmed bistrol cardstock to 10 x 3 1/2 and folded at the 8 1/2 seam. I then adhered an 8 x 3 1/2 piece of acetate to the short fold to create the card base. I then die cut five eyelet lace borders from thick white cardstock, adhering one to the bottom of the acetate and four layered along the top.

For the background, I first heat embossed the Happy Easter in white and inked over with tea dye & antique linen. Next, I heat embossed all the peonies, two of each, in white. I recommend heat embossing your images for beginners of watercoloring, it helps keep the water in the lines as you learn!  I used Prima confections watercolors on the stamped flowers and leaves in pinks and shimmer gold.

I also used the watercolors to add a few splatters on the inked inside. I finished the card by adhering all the images with score tape over the acetate along the bottom and above the sentiment on the inside.

I hope you are inspired to try a new technique you have admired! Thank you for visiting!
