Pink Peony Hello

We had another nice sunny day here yesterday! It was in the 70’s in Manhattan, not to last too long though, tonight it’s to drop down into the 40’s. But I did enjoy the day! I spent some time at The Ink Pad, they got in a huge order so I volunteered to help with it. It’s a great way to have first dibs on the new goodies! LOL! Last night I met Kim at the Party City on 14th Street. She is off to St. Louis this morning and had to get a Halloween costume. After that we had some Chipotle for dinner and then headed back uptown to her apartment. I set up her Pebble Watch, FitBit, iPad and Bluetooth Music Receiver, that’s a lot of electronics! This morning I’m going to head back down to The Ink Pad and then make my way home.

Today I have a card that uses a new line of stamps that The Ink Pad is the exclusive retailer of. The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. For the background I embossed a piece of Neenah Desert Storm with the We R Memory Keepers Woodgrain Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card with Fun Foam and SNAIL. The flower and leaves are from the Large Peony Photopolymer Stamp Set from The Ton Coture Stamps Set. I heat embossed it and the leaves in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder on some Ranger Watercolor Card Stock. To color them I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a damp paint brush. They are then cut out with my Paper Snips and adhered to the card with SNAIL and Fun Foam. My greeting is a piece of paper from the Midnight MagicΒ 6×6 Pad and Black 110lb cut out with the Simon Says Stamp Painted Hello Die. I adhered them to each other and to the card with Multi-Matte Medium. Finally, a few Pretty Pink Posh Ballerina and Gold Sequins are scattered around the flower finish off the card with a little sparkle! I do love that flower, nice and big, oh and very bright! LOL! I hope that you enjoyed my card for today! Thank you for stopping by and have a very nice Thursday! πŸ™‚

  1. Beautiful card today, Justin. I love the peony and pink is one of my favorite colors. If we could just keep the weather we’ve been having on the East Coast until April, wouldn’t that be ideal!! Warm days and cool nights. Who could ask for more? Oh well, back to reality soon, right?

    1. Thank you HJ! The peony is so nice and detailed and I wanted it bright! LOL! I would if the weather would stay! It’s been heavenly! No, I don’t like reality! LOL! πŸ™‚

  2. Love the sequins! they look like dew drops. The coloring is great, super, very real.
